The Keys to Your BBG Success

To ensure the success of your BBG Chapter and maximise the value of your membership there are three simple rules that we all need to follow.

These rules are literally the "Keys to BBG Success" and their importance to each BBG Member and every BBG Chapter cannot be over-emphasised:

  1. Pay it forward
  2. Listen with intent
  3. Refer with generosity

1. Pay it forward!

The first key to you receiving a steady flow of warm referrals from your BBG group is your willingness to supply referrals to your BBG colleagues.

It works like this …

Everyone joins BBG with the expectation of RECEIVING warm referrals for their businesses.

However, what many do not understand, is that these referrals come out of a shared “Referral Well”. A Referral Well that is filled up and replenished by the referrals SUPPLIED by you. And the other members of your group.

If you and your colleagues are not pouring referrals into the Referral Well it will quickly run dry.

If, on the other hand, you are all pouring referrals into the Referral Well, it will quickly fill up and everyone will be able to slate their thirst.

So, don't stand by the well banging your empty cup against the wall. Get busy filling it up with your referrals and the law of reciprocity will take care of the rest.

We call this approach “Paying it forward” and place huge value on members who understand that this approach will ultimately be to everyone's benefit. Yours included!

2. Listen with intent

At every BBG Forum, a number of your colleagues will present their business overview (or, one of their key products or services) to you and the other members of your group.

When you are listening to these presentations you should have one question in mind … “Who do I know that might benefit from the product, service, approach and expertise being demonstrated here today”?

As your colleague makes their presentations, scribble down the names of people you know that might be interested in, or benefit from, what is being described.

Then, during the KLT hot seat session later in the meeting, ask the presenter for further explanation of any points you need clarified before you refer them to the prospects you jotted down earlier.

You should listen to every presenter with the clear objective of referring each of them to at least one contact after your meeting.

If you take this approach and listen with intent, you will be amazed at how easy it is to match your BBG Colleagues to your contact list.

3. Refer with generosity

As I travel around the country attending BBG Forums, I often find myself promoting BBG's “Culture of Generosity”.

This spirit of generosity is never more important than when you make your referrals.

Now I know that Referron makes it possible for you to generate a referral with just 3 taps.

But ask yourself, is this a referral you would be happy to receive?

Sure, it's better than nothing. But, how much more powerful will the referral be if - before you use the referron app - you first call your contact and explain why you think the BBG colleague you are about to refer, could add enormous value to their business. And then call your BBG colleague to provide them with some insight and context for the service seeker you are referring to them.

The process I am describing above will turn your ho-hum referrals into warm leads. And will greatly increase the likelihood of your colleague turning your referrals into sales.

Which takes me all the way back to where I started ... to the referral well and the law of reciprocity.

Apply these three key principles diligently and you WILL reap the rewards:
1. Pay it forward
2. Listen with intent
3. Refer with generosity

    ICO's are a type of cryptocurrency which might be distributed by startups to be able to secure funding.
    ICOs are highly speculative investments in blockchain technology
    projects. However even if the company is registered in Australia, or has a licence,
    there are risks associated with investing in ICOs.
    This displays a bigger dynamic of ICOs, which
    is that they're almost solely utilized by expertise initiatives —
    and largely blockchain-primarily based projects, at that.
    The know-how behind ICOs and the potential makes use of for the technology
    are of their early levels, so token values fluctuate because
    of their reputation fairly than any real underlying value.

    For those who select to maintain your tokens on an exchange they will still be stolen if the
    trade is hacked. Firms have appeared to facilitate the method by
    making available functioning on-line wallets for their
    ICOs, the place the investor can send the cash directly to the pockets
    established, the funds exchanged for tokens utilizing the alternate price on the time
    of buy, with the tokens deposited into the pockets. ICOs are performed on-line,
    and purchasers use fiat currency, just like the U.S. dollar, or virtual currencies, like bitcoin and ether, to pay for the brand new tokens.


    ICOs present a means for cryptocurrency mission creators to boost money for
    their operations. An ICO has an additional benefit
    for the founders of the cryptocurrency, because it gives a
    way of distributing the brand new tokens. Aside from defying
    frequent sense, few to none ICOs would be capable of increase any
    cash from conventional enterprise capitalists, who rarely give out such sums—especially to questionable projects.
    Blockstack's ICO was launched in November and
    the sale has attracted numerous high profile investors aside from Winklevoss Capital, including Blockchain Capital, Digital Forex
    Group and Techcrunch founder Michael Arrington.

    In April, money raised by way of ICOs hit $100 million, only to double in Could and hit over $550 million in June This was
    the primary month ever when money raised via
    ICOs surpassed angel and seed VC funding. The majority of ICOs contain the creation of an outlined variety of
    cash or tokens prior to sale. Second, tokens may be converted into Ordinary Shares of the Firm (subject to certain situations, as described in the
    Data Memorandum), thereby providing the authorized link between tokens and Unusual Shares.



    If we see with a perspective of blockchain technique, then a token sale is basically an event through which a company sells its tokens to other buyers or
    companies and in return, get any fiat or cryptocurrency.

    Given bitcoin and the bigger cryptocurrency world's deep tradition of putting up with bad
    habits , it is not a surprise that ICOs are attracting humans of base intent.
    Improvement teams get the funds required to build their ideas
    into full-blown tasks without having to undergo all the standard red tape and buyers can entry a truly global market that isn't geographically restricted.


    Multi-Sig is an instance of such an escrow agent, with the agent primarily funding the project on an ongoing
    basis, funds released from an escrow as wanted, the agent making certain that venture targets are being met along
    with the corporate's pre-determined obligations to the investor.
    Any time you make investments your laborious-earned money into an funding, whether it be a inventory or ICO, due diligence
    and analysis are required. An ‘Initial Coin Offering' (or ‘ICO') is a fundraising
    methodology that is relatively just like
    an Preliminary Public Providing (IPO).

    A current addition to the raging pattern of cryptocurrency is the Preliminary Coin Providing (ICO).
    You will invest earlier than an ICO begins, as CCEDK
    will maintain investments in escrow until the ICOs formally launch.
    The many years-old, tried-and-true approach for a expertise
    firm to boost cash: A company founder sells a few of his or her
    possession stake in exchange for money from a venture capitalist, who basically
    believes that their new ownership shall be value extra sooner or
    later than is the money they spent now.

    For the creator, the subsequent step is
    to start mining for coins that may bought through
    the ICO, with social media sites, Reddit and a rising number of cryptocurrency related web site used as a advertising medium to attract traders
    ahead of the ICO data, creators wanting to draw in as
    a lot interest as doable to not solely elevate the required funding, but also
    push demand and costs put up ICO. Final week, the SEC warned traders to be careful
    for ICO scams This week, China went so far as to ban ICOs
    , and different governments may observe suit.



    You too can promote your tokens at an change. An ICO can be
    referred to as an 'initial token offering' depending on the context.
    Alternatively, tokens are sold on cryptocurrency exchanges, which implies that the tokens need to be launched on various exchanges in advance for buying and selling.

    NXT created a cryptocurrency coded from scratch (i.e.
    not a fork of the original Bitcoin code) and applied the primary
    totally proof-of-stake system. Some ICOs use a single public Bitcoin handle to raise funds,
    which is dangerous for privacy, but is good for a group audit of the well being of the ICO and the money raised.
