Welcome to Lucky 62 - The Largest BNI in the USA!
Wednesday morning. 7:10 a.m. You're sitting at a table, flanked by people. You reach for your eggs, smile at a stranger, and idly wonder why everyone seems so happy.
Someone rings a bell, and a charismatic speaker introduces herself. One by one, people stand, and you learn what they do. There are lawyers. People good at money. Others that know real estate. Marketing. Wellness. There are insurance folks, photographers, and people that make things work. The mood is light, and the "commercials" go quickly. You circle the names of a few folks you'll linger to meet.
Now it's your turn to speak. Someone laughs at your joke, and it puts you at ease. This is fun, you think. I like this.
Suddenly, you realize what this weekly meeting is about. It's more than a bunch of disparate professions networking in New York City. It's a fortified sales force. A deep community of resources, partnerships...and friends.
And that's how it works.
The power of Lucky 62 is astounding. Unlike many NYC networking events, there's only one member per "seat" or profession. Unlike much business networking, we train each other to sell for us—consistently, and powerfully. After all, our fellow members know people you don't. People you will never meet. You get referrals, they lead to sales, and all of it (beyond our modest dues) is free.
The only "cost"? You do what you can for everyone else, too.
With playfulness balanced by strong leadership, the famous "Lucky 62" takes Manhattan Networking to another level. Just a few years old, we're big, we're effective, and we're fun (our energy is legendary!). We screen our members for strength, integrity, and fit. And it pays: In 2016, we surpassed $7.2M in referral business.
This year, we're looking to double this number. Don't you want to be a part of the action?
