Building a Network With the Referral Diva!

You are invited to join us for lunch January 23, 2019 from 11:30am-1:00pm at Il Bel Lago (11631 Olive, Creve Coeur, MO  63141).  
Our featured speaker is Virginia Muzquiz, the Referral Diva!  Virginia will share essentials business owners and sales professionals need to know to maximize their networking ROI and avoid common networking mistakes that waste time and energy.
Virginia Muzquiz (@TheReferralDiva) is the owner of and Chief Connection Officer at Master Connectors, Inc., helping six-figure solopreneurs capture the net worth of their networks so they can build a business that not only fuels their passions and funds their dreams, but also has massive impact in the communities where they live and serve.  As an Executive Director with BNI MidAmerica, Virginia is responsible for helping business professionals build their own highly profitable referral organizations.  With over 30 years of teaching and business building experience, Virginia knows the leveraging social capital is the most cost-effective way to build a business and design a life. From 2005-2011, Virginia grew the contract services division of a local education franchise from $0 in annual revenue to over $2.5 million -- completely by word of mouth! As the owner of Gateway Referral Institute (2010-2015), Virginia distinguished herself as a top producer and earned her seat on the exclusive Executive Circle. Today, Virginia lives on the Muzquiz Mini-Farm with her husband, Victor, 2 horses, 2 dogs, 3 cats and a flock of egg-laying hens. She enjoys spending time with her daughters, Nicole(23), Megan (21), reading, gardening, knitting and all things Steampunk!
