Each letter in the acronym, Q.U.A.C.K stands for a powerful principle, that when used in your life and business, can change everything.
Founders and Developers of TRU and Q.U.A.C.K the Code Course-work, Mark and Jana Cardona are long time networkers and Business Network International Executive Directors with expertise in referral marketing and strategy. TRU was formed from the intense desire to assist business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs in learning how to Q.U.A.C.K the code and make more money, optimize time, and pursue their dreams. With history in helping thousands of business professionals and small business owners make $Millions, Mark and Jana Cardona are now applying their collective knowledge and experience to build and direct a tribe of #TRUconnections.
Get to know Jana Cardona – Executive TRUtribe Leader: An expert in referral marketing as a passionate speaker, workshop trainer and leader in the areas of networking, business referral development and relationship building.
Jana is a 10 year Executive Director of Business Network International (BNI) Mid-South. BNI is the world’s premier referral marketing organization with over 7000 chapters in 60 countries. Under her tutelage, members in her region added well over $22 million in revenue from referrals to their personal businesses in 2014.
In addition to her role with BNI, Jana has developed a speaking and training platform that assists individuals and companies in designing an intentional referral marketing business plan. Most individuals network haphazardly rather than by design. They don't realize they need to develop a strategic plan before they walk out the door.
Important elements in this strategic plan include identifying ideal clients and the situations they experience, and then what makes them call you. Since it pays to work smarter, not harder, she also guides you to identify referral partners and strategic alliances that can drive a steady stream of those clients to your business.
Attendees at her keynotes, workshops, and seminars are better able to bridge the gap between merely networking casually to creating a language for referrals that will attract their desired clients.
A natural mentor, Jana brings a passion for teaching and exemplary skills as a communicator to her coaching practice. She not only focuses on what steps people need to take to become better at networking, but how to truly leverage relationships for the greater good.
