Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment to exchange quality business referrals. BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world. We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.

Last year Members of BNI passed thousands of referrals, which generated over $11.2 Billion dollars worth of business for each other! BNI is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!

It's simple because it's based on the proven concept of "what goes around, comes around." If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%? You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!!!

In 2016, Business Network Int'l with 7800+ chapters and over 211,000 members in 55+ countries BNI members passed referrals resulting in more than $11.2 billion in business!

According to research Helen Dukhan did, there are simply not enough resources for divorced women out there. The divorce attorney and member of BNI’s Achieving Advantage chapter, decided to change that.

Helen founded Sunset 2 Sunrise, a nonprofit organization that helps women after divorce. The organization provides:

  • A makeover, including hair and makeup
  • Pictures of the woman and her children, if she chooses, with a portrait and digital images that can used on websites.
  • Money for initial counseling sessions
  • Access to a private, secure online community for advice, along with educational programs and motivational retreats

“Women are in so much pain during and after a divorce. Research suggests that they are often the ones most diagnosed with depression,” Helen said. “I work with these women during divorce, and I really wanted to find a way to help them. I want to help these women feel beautiful and empowered.”

Sunset 2 Sunrise will have a launch party on September 4 at the Artisan Kitchen in Hawthorne. Helen hopes the event will become an annual fundraising gala. For more information, visit sunset2sunrise.org.
