I have been a member of PTR since the Spring of 2013. I originally joined the group to find some people to network with and to locate advocates for my business.

What I didn’t expect were the close personal relationships I developed with the other members and the education I receive each Friday learning from the other members. The benefits to me have been both measurable and immeasurable. I have received referrals that have added to the bottom line of my practice, but as importantly, I have been able to take ideas from the other members and applied them to my daily activities that no doubt have made me better at what I do.

There are other options out there, but I think none matches the solid, good faith interaction you will experience at PTR.

I joined PTR about 4 years ago in February 2011. I joined because I was able to generate over $10,000 worth of business from a PTR Visitors Event BEFORE I was even a member.

PTR has been a great way to build my business while surrounding myself with people that are great friends as well as referral sources. That you can have a very effective referral organization without all the formality as well as cost, and that networking can be fun, educational, and profitable. I have become closer to the people in PTR. I would say we are a group of close friends that work to build each other’s business.

Being the “old timer” of the group, I have benefited from this group tremendously over the last 15 years.

PTR helped me create new relationships throughout the business community when I first became a banker at Brentwood Bank. Being a relationship banker is all about relationships and earning someone’s trust.

95% of my business has come from referrals from others who trust me, which PTR has helped establish that referral business “from scratch”.

Banker, Brentwood Bank

I joined PTR in 2004 in conjunction with starting my sign business. I didn’t have many connections in those days, business or personal, because I had just returned to the area after 20 years. I had no advertising budget to speak of, I didn’t know much at all about business.

My first referral returned my membership fee to times over! Business seemed to snowball after that! To this day my best customer is a Moving and Storage company referred to me by a group member.

The PTR group is still directly, or indirectly after 11 years, responsible for a good portion of my business. I also have learned lots about business, improved my public speaking abilities, and met some really great people who have helped my loads, both personally and professionally!
