The Saint Joseph's Businessmen Network is an organization dedicated to Saint Joseph the Worker. We are Catholic men who look to support each other in our mission to know God and serve Him in our given vocation of Husband and/or Father or single state. We will support each other through prayer, fellowship, networking and accountability in our role of leader and protector of our families.
In order to create a culture of virtue and life, Smooth Stone Foundation firmly believes that we need to help each other in business as well as in other areas of life. Imagine what good we could do if all faithful Americans organized to help each other in business!
In that spirit, Smooth Stone Foundation would like to help facilitate the formation of a chapter of the St. Joseph’s Businessmen’s Networking Group http://www.sjbn.info in Ave Maria or South West Florida. We are currently looking for men interested in participating as potential leaders or members of the soon-to-be-formed local chapter.
In Cleveland Ohio in 2010, the founder of St. Joseph’s Businessman’s Network, Bill McCarron, saw the benefit of bringing Catholic businessmen together to help each other grow in professional, personal and spiritual excellence. The Founder of Smooth Stone Foundation, Jim Soltis, benefited greatly from this group before he moved to SW Florida and he would like to help bring this opportunity to the men of Florida.
The simple proven format of the bi-weekly morning meetings effectively moves the group through prayer, introduction of the members new and old, reflection on the Gospel, member business challenge and subsequent discussion, accountability goals, an 8-minute professional spotlight for one member, an opportunity for each member to give an ‘elevator speech’ on how the other men might help them, followed by closing prayer.
Local members will enjoy the potential to network with the other members of SJBN outside of Florida through the ‘members only’ section of SJBN which is a lot like a Catholic LinkedIn.
In you are interested in becoming a potential member or leader in Florida please email Jim Soltis firstname.lastname@example.org or call Ph: (877) 462-1917 x 101
If you would like to donate to this effort, in order to keep dues low, Smooth Stone Foundation would like to help defray the initial start-up & administrative costs of this group by raising $3,000 in seed money.
