Robert Jones is the Founder of the only independent non-franchised networking group called Network Together. He stumbled on this amazing opportunity by chance with a failed attempt to connect at a Chamber of Commerce. He now has over 1200 members, and they are growing at a rapid pace.
His group not only nurtures members in self-confidence, mindset, and public speaking, it also creates growth opportunities for individuals and their businesses. He was surprised by how much he loved networking and people. According to Robert, having the proper mindset and being authentic to your true self is the ticket to success.
