Dr. Bunny and Dr. J met through Ray Gonzales, a Director Consultant, of Business Network International (BNI) the world’s largest business networking and business referral organization.  Dr. Bunny was a member of BNI for 15 years and Dr. J has been a member for 12 years.

The executive directors of BNI Ventura County, Shawn and Linda McCarthy, (shown in the photo to the left) have built up Ventura County BNI to upwards of twenty-two chapters!

The unique quality of BNI is that there is no competition because the members of each chapter must have a diversity of occupations.  Each member has to be a business leader with an impeccable reputation.

The benefits are many.  BNI is built on a brilliant concept.  One gets to know the real person behind the business.  Without BNI, Dr. J exclaims, he would not be in business today.  BNI members are the movers and shakers of the community and give a lot to the community even behind the scenes.  Most of his friends are from BNI.  They are trustworthy and because of them, he feels connected and at home in the business community of Oxnard.

One of the mottos of BNI is “Givers Gain.”  Shawn and Linda McCarthy have lived that motto.  Dr. Bunny says that whenever she needs anything, she will call Linda or Shawn.  Dr. J exclaims that they know everybody and know the right person for the job.

They are the confidence builders – people who are always raising you up.  They have had a wonderful impact on the planet –  and many have had the privilege of meeting and knowing them.

A big thank you Shawn and Linda! We love you and what you have taught us – Givers Gain!  This show is dedicated to you!

“We will miss you, Shawn!”
