Being a part of our local BNI community is an amazing opportunity and we are in major expansion mode. RIGHT NOW is your time to get involved.

Hi, I'm Steve Black,

and my passion is to help small businesses get access to the systems, tools and resources to help them get better referrals, better clients and have better businesses.


For years I have used the same system to grow my business. First as a BNI Member in Austin, TX with my Custom Window Treatment Company and then as the Executive Director and owner of BNI West & South-Central Texas.


My members have passed over $10 million in business through the power of referral and relationship marketing in 2020 alone.


Are you looking to grow your business?

Having great connections is like having a butler that unlocks and opens the door for you before you need it.

What our members are saying...

Jon Benton

BNI has been a crucial part of my business.

I opened SuperGeeks Lubbock in 2013 and was a charter member of Lubbock's BNI Connect 4 Success chapter shortly after. As a first time business owner the meetings, training, networking and referrals were a foundational part of the growth of my business. I had a network of experienced business owners and sales professionals I met with every week. If I had a question about any of the myriad issues a business owner can encounter, I had people I trusted just a call, text or meeting away. And this is not an exaggeration, every single one of my biggest clients has come from a referral from my BNI Chapter.


If anyone is looking to grow a business, new or existing, I can't recommend BNI enough.
