Core: A Business Community

August 6, 2019


We are Business owners, Agents & Connectors.

We are a community.

We are growth minded, celebrate successes, solve problems & share knowledge.

We are not your typical intense referral-passing community. We are, however, the only eco-system focused on building relationships and offering support. Referrals happen naturally.

We are a fun and focused group and we believe that true business support is about building positive relationships, celebrating successes, brainstorm solutions and sharing knowledge and connections.

Each meeting you will tell us your 60 second pitch, we’ll spotlight a member and discuss our challenges. Every meeting ends with a celebration of your successes!

We are success focused and challenge aware. We are agents, owners and connectors.

Business building is tough, don’t do it alone! Allow us to help you.

Relationships are the best way to market and it’s a smarter way to build.

Come visit us!

Please note that Core has a strict TWO VISIT policy This means you may visit any of our chapters before becoming a member. We value our members and work to maximize your success. For some this is collaboration within industry, for others this is learning about new resources. For everyone this is accountability to your goals.

To join, membership is 20/mo or 200/yr (autopay)

If you prefer the traditional groups – competition vs collaboration – then this is not the group for you. All members understand that we thrive together regardless of occupational overlap and we are truly here to help each other grow.
