BRAG. Business Resource Alliance Group – About

“BRAG” was formed in 2009. The vision of founders, Val Hein and Bob Liebhauser, was to create a dynamic organization for connecting passionate business owners that understood the value of relationship building and intentional business owner introductions. Today, our group is over 25 members strong but those same principals still guide our daily activities – creating relationships of value and helping great businesses achieve their next level of success.

BRAG is a group that facilitates networking but we do much more than just pass out business cards. The most effective and efficient marketing strategy for any business is referrals and at BRAG, we know how to refer with purpose. BRAG members meet with each other throughout the month to strategize what introductions would most benefit fellow members, we invite prospective clients out to three way meetings and endorse our members to help close business and most importantly we set individual and group goals for new connections and actual business done each month. Each BRAG member is an expert in their respective field and it’s our belief that if we introduce those experts to businesses who genuinely need their services, we can expect positive outcomes.
