Professional Fees Are Stupid!

 

Yes, you read the title right. AmSpirit Business Connections’ professional fees are stupid. It is simply idiotic to coerce entrepreneurs, sales representatives, and professionals to pony up a dollar or so for seemingly harmless infractions, such as arriving late, not shaking someone’s hand or not silencing an electronic device.

Do you know what is even more idiotic than professional fees? When business people lose hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars in business because they do not have the commitment or presence of mind to consistently conduct themselves in a professional manner.

The bottom line is that no one really cares about the nickels and dimes that a member pays for not shaking the Mystery Geeter’s hand or even the dollars a member might have to pony up for missing a lunch assignment. They, however, care immensely about the message this sends to prospective members and how this adversely affects the professional culture of the Chapter.

The linchpin to successful networking is trust and trust is built by doing the right thing (not just some of the time, but all of the time). If you consistently arrive late to the meeting, you impair the professionalism of the Chapter. If you dismiss the common courtesy of greeting those at the Chapter, the environment becomes that much colder of a place to gather. If you fail to make time to meet with your fellow members outside the Chapter meeting, you hinder the all-important “know, like and trust” within your Chapter.

Yes, professional fees are stupid and no one wants your spare change. They just want you to treat them and the meeting as if it involved a several thousand-dollar deal. This is because, in all likelihood, it does.

Be Full Of K.R.A.P.

Heritage Bucket

Patty Boerger, 2013 President of the Heritage Chapter set the tone for the new year with a message that “we need to be full of K.R.A.P.”. That sounds bad doesn’t it, but didn’t it get your attention. K.R.A.P. is an acronym and is explained below.

‘K’ stands for ‘Knowledge’. Do you let your fellow members know what it is you do and more importantly ALL that you do. Too often we get stuck telling only part of our story and it is the same over and over again for our 30 second commercial.  Mix it up and mention something that is not global, but is a small thing that you can do. Knowledge is power and the more they know about you and your business the better they can get referrals for you.

‘R’ stands for ‘Referrals and Responsibility’. This is a two way street. When you give a referral, especially a 2nd generation one, make sure the other person knows who will be calling them. AND more importantly it is the responsibility of the member getting the referral to contact the other party within 24-48 hours.

‘A’ stands for ‘Achievement’.  We are all good members in AmSpirit, but to reach our potential and use this organization to its utmost, we must all help to achieve our Goals… both individually and as a chapter. That means Giving Referrals, attendance, and participating in the various events that our club or others have. Only by giving can you expect to receive.

‘P’stands for ‘Participation’. Don’t expect others to be enthusiastic about doing business with you IF you are not at the meetings. If you don’t give referrals… or if they don’t know enough about you. Be there each week and live up to your responsibility to give at least 2 referrals each month… and participate in the lunch buddies, and go to a MORE meeting at least once during the year.

Come on lets ALL be full of K.R.A.P. this year.
