Grotto Group is truly a meaningful part of my network. I am in a group with like-minded peers that I trust and enjoy; individuals who value community involvement and giving back to our communities as well. I consider it a win for my business, our community, and for my clients. Go Grotto!

EDDIE PETERSON



OPERATIONS MANAGER | THE VIEWFINDER

Boise, ID

I value The Grotto Group as a networking organization because of the direction and vision of the leadership. They instill their values throughout the various groups through a variety of means. The first is “do as I do”. They are role models who participate in community events and encourage members to do the same. They attend individual group meetings as inspiration to the group – to let each group know they care. The leaders find compelling speakers for seminars to help educate members in sales and leadership at no cost to the member. They are interested in growth – both for themselves and every member of Grotto.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR | WISH GRANTERS

Boise, ID

The Grotto Group is a business networking and referral group with a professional atmosphere and personal touch. The small group environment is a terrific complement to the group as a whole, and the group values and develops relationships and one-on-one networking. This personal environment has allowed Wishgranters to impact many areas of our philanthropic community and share our message with integrity. Grotto members have been integral in the success of our event outreach, and for this I am truly grateful.

REID COY



AGENT | PAYNE WEST

Boise, ID

When I moved back to the Boise area several years ago I knew I needed to get plugged into the community fast. I looked at several groups, but was really drawn to the Grotto model. Each Grotto Group has its own flavor based on the members. Besides the weekly meetings, Grotto offers other mixers & charity events that allow me to expand my network outside of my weekly group. I’m always welcome to visit other groups as well which creates more touches and allows me to promote my personal brand in the community. I don’t think any other networking group provides as many touches as Grotto. That makes it the best value in the market place for face to face networking.

AGENT | STATE FARM INSURANCE

Meridian, ID

When I was approached to join Grotto my initial concern was that this was just another BNI group. Much to my surprise, I discovered Grotto was a working team lifting each other up professionally and personally. I look forward to each and every week, knowing that I will learn something new, deepen relationships with other business minded people and work to better my community. The referrals and relationships I have developed in the last year have made a significant impact on the growth of my business. By far, Grotto is worth more than the membership dues I pay.

RISK ADVISOR | FARM BUREAU MUTUAL Insurance

Boise, ID

When I started my career as a Risk Advisor at Farm Bureau Insurance of Idaho, I knew it was important to find a networking group that fit my personality and offered a helping hand in the community. I attended several other networking meetings in town before I found the Grotto Group. I have formed many wonderful relationships in The Grotto Group. Everyone in the group puts their skills and efforts together to find ways to help each other grow. I can honestly say the Grotto is like having a mini-sales force working for you.

Account manager | Boise Metro Chamber

Boise, ID

The Grotto Group has been great for me and my business. Everyone involved with The Grotto Group has a genuine spirit of giving and that makes it easy to build relationships. It is great to have a network of people to refer business, and I’ve received lots of business myself through referrals. I also appreciate that a portion of chapter dues is donated to local non-profits. Business and referrals happen naturally when you have a sphere of influence as tightly knit as the Grotto Groups are. My membership is definitely worth the money! I have enjoyed my Grotto Group experience so much so that I encouraged my husband to join a chapter as well. I would encourage anyone who is looking to grow their business and their scope of service in the community to get involved with a Grotto Group!

Agent | Insurance hot spot

Boise, ID

After working for large corporations for many years, I recently ventured out on my own. A huge missing component in my new professional life was a team that I could collaborate with on growing my business and serving others. Grotto Group has more than met my expectations on both! After only 2 months together, we already act as an extended sales force for each other, and we’ve given each other numerous referrals and leads. I’ve already formed meaningful friendships and relationships. My chapter works hard to support each member and we look for opportunities to help in the community and support those experiencing less fortunate circumstances.

Agent | Answers Insurance

Meridian, ID

Grotto has been helpful to my business by getting me in front of people outside of my target market. Since Medicare is generally for people 65 and up, I don’t usually interact with non-seniors. Grotto helped me realize that every Grotto member could be a good referral source for me just with their mom and dads. I have also found success visiting with fellow members who work with seniors. I think the key is to be focused on a clear message of how you help your clients. This makes it easy to get referrals.

The Grotto Group is such an asset to my business. I have developed not only great business partners, but also great friends. The leads I get from this group are solid, profitable leads. It’s great to know I have a sales force out there that believes in me and what I do. I have checked out several networking groups and none could compare to what we have at our Grotto Group.
