Podcast: Dr. Ivan Misner On Networking, The Secret, Richard Branson and More

Wow. This was a great interview!

This one-hour interview with Dr. Ivan Misner, the founder and CEO of BNI (Business Network International) the largest business networking organization in the world, is packed with powerful information for entrepreneurs and all Leading Edge Thinkers.

Here is just some of what Dr. Misner shares in this recording:

  • Why he chose the concept of Giver’s Gain as the core philosophy for BNI.
  • Insider information about Rhonda Byrne’s original vision for The Secret and why it makes sense that the movie may have glossed over some important issues about the Law of Attraction.
  • His thoughts on vision as a driving force in business success and how a clear vision for BNI was a contributing factor in growing BNI from 450 chapters to over 4900 chapters!
  • Valuable insights about delegation and practical, powerful advice on how to get clear about what to delegate and how to make it happen.
  • How a phone call from an unknown BNI member 4-years ago set in motion a series of events leading to his attendance at a private 5-day retreat with Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island (Branson’s private island).
  • How he decides whether or not to say “yes” to an opportunity.
  • His thoughts on how to integrate online marketing with face-to-face marketing.
  • Why BNI is primarily a local network and focused on thinking globally and acting locally.
  • Why networking is more about farming than about hunting.
  • Why entrepreneurs should strive for harmony and let go of looking for balance.
  • And much more!
