NetworkingPhoenix events this week

There is nothing I love more than a good testimonial! That's why I was so excited when Barry Nemet of All-in-One Maintenance emailed me to tell me about the experience he recently had because of our site.

"I had a lot of extra time on my hands this week due to work being a little slow, so I went to and found a networking event put on by a group called 'One Community.' I attended and after being there there for about 2 hours, I received a definite 4-5 hot leads for about $2,000 worth of home repairs...and that could very possibly lead to another $5,000 in remodeling. I'm on cloud nine!!! I can't wait until tommorrow to start scheduleing the work! It seems there's no handyman in this networking group and they've been looking for someone just like me! Thanks for creating such a great calendar! I'm going to check it out more frequently."

You are welcome, Barry! Keep making those great connections and watch your business flourish. Do YOU have a testimonial for us? We'd love to hear it...PLEASE send it over :)

If you've been following my emails lately...then you've probably seen me talk about managing all your networking contacts and the various products that Sage offers do help you do that. Today, I'd like to introduce you to  one more product that would be a great solution! is an easy-to-use on-demand Customer Relationship Management solution that helps you manage your business and your customers.
