“I broke down how much of my income was a referral from someone I met at Link Up. 48% of my total revenue in 2020. It's a small group of close-knit people and that’s just how powerful it is.”

Link Up Attendee 2019

“It’s twice a month for two hours and you get a chance to pull out of the minutia of your business and I’m challenging you to look at the bigger picture. Stay at that 5,000–10,000 foot level and evaluate where you’re at, what’s working, what’s not, and where are you trying to get to.”
