Welcome to BNI Louisiana!

Now, more than ever, business people need to network to stay in business. BNI is the largest business networking organization in the world and provides a positive, supportive, and structured environment.  We offer members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals.

BNI is a business and professional referral organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter.  Last year alone, BNI generated 6.6 million referrals resulting in 8.5 billion dollars worth of business for its members! 

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that!

Linda Allred

Linda Allred, a four-year member of Baton Rouge's YES BNI chapter, is this month's spotlight member. She has been a Visitor Host during much of her membership. Linda is known as The Hottest Ticket in Town. Her passion is to pay forward what she has learned in the past 20 years about Mindset Mastery to the world.  She is an expert in the Accelerated Change Template (ACT™) which uses two of the most powerful belief-change modalities in the world, the energy work of Kinesiology (muscle testing), and/or Self-Hypnosis.  She is also a two-time best-selling co-author. The first is, Answering The Call, which allows the reader to Answer Their Own Call in their journey through life, whether that is losing 10 lbs, 100 lbs, reducing stress, quitting smoking, charging what you are worth or making $100,000 or $1,000,000 in their business. In her second best-selling book, Journey to the Stage, Linda reveals how you can unlock the power of your voice and command the attention of any room. Based on the success of the book, Linda was awarded a QuillyTM Award in 2014 in Hollywood, CA.
