Eight Resolutions to Make the Most of Your JNET Membership


Happy New Year! I hope that 2016 is the year in which you realize some dreams and achieve a great sense of accomplishment. I also hope that being a member of JNET is one of the ingredients that lends to your success this year.


I invite you to plan for the joy and prosperity you intend to experience by making some resolutions or personal commitments to start the year off at JNET on a good foot. You can agree to all or none of the following ideas but I hope you will incorporate some:

  1. Start seeing JNET more as an opportunity to be among those like-minded in spiritual beliefs and traditions, with Jewish business professionals who share a common bond and desire to build strong relationships by contributing to each other’s financial success and personal well-being. JNET is more than a room to meet in.
  2. Start doing all the business you can with JNET members first when you need products or services. Take that extra step to make sure that a JNET member is getting your business referrals of colleagues, family, and friends as well.
  3. Use the JNET website’s Needs and Opportunities Forum only to refer JNET members to each other. Any other referrals should be done by private email and not via the JNET website. That’s only fair.
  4. Start planning which JNET chapter meetings to attend in advance by looking at the website calendar ( Carpooling with other JNET members makes it easier to get to meetings and to keep a networking self-commitment. The more meetings attended, the better the chance to reap rewards.
  5. Sign up to speak at chapters that will offer exposure to people with whom you are not yet familiar. Speaking is a sure way to make certain that people have the correct information and proper perception of exactly what you have to offer and why.
  6. Plan to attend as many JNET Connects get-togethers as possible and never be a no-show. Time is valuable and JNET members deserve proper respect for their time.
  7. Always pay immediately or within the agreed-upon time period for products and services that are received when doing business with JNET members or referrals of JNET members. Honor and integrity are core values of JNET and must never be compromised.
  8. Start having an influence on the results of JNET membership by becoming a part of a chapter leadership team or on a committee of the JNET National Board of Directors.


I am a glutton for punishment, so I am going to commit to doing something from all eight suggested resolutions. I welcome your company in making 2016 the best JNET year yet!
