3 Supersized Benefits to Joining a Membership Organization

Successful business owners have learned the value of networking. Organization membership can provide a tremendous value to a growing company. Yes, an organization membership can bring business to you. However, there is so much more to joining than that. Consider these three very important benefits that are often overlooked.

1. Mentorship – Anyone will tell you that to get to the next level in business, you must consult with those who have knowledge and expertise in different areas. Whether it is marketing or public relations or sales, having access to industry experts is priceless. And there’s more. Mentors can save you from the headache of making unnecessary mistakes. Don’t get me wrong. Mistakes and failures play a vital role in growing a business. And believe me, there are plenty to go around. Having a mentor can accelerate the inevitable learning curve.

2. Camaraderie – When was the last time you faced negative questions from your family and friends about what it is that you do? Those business owners who have a brick and mortar are likely immune from this type of question since people can “see” the business. But those of us who have a home based or internet based business often find it difficult to share ideas and concerns with those who work for someone else. To people who “work for a living,” running a small business comes across as mysterious and frivolous. Moreover, due to the lack of understanding, family, friends, and employees become nay sayers to your ambitions. That’s why if your business is to grow, you must stay connected to the beautiful and inspiring people who are actively pursuing their business goals as well as those who are quite successful at it.

3. Accountability – Many small businesses operate as a sole proprietor. We love what we do. That is why we often spend the majority of our time engrossed in our product or service. We work hard to deliver quality to our clients. Likewise, we set high goals for our business. Yet there is no one to hold us accountable. That’s where the organization and its membership come in. We can team with success partners within the organization who can offer gentle persuasion and hold us accountable to our goals. Having someone hold you accountable can mean the difference between growing and staying where you are.

Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
