“The secret to performance and satisfaction is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.” Dan Pink

In his book “Drive”, Dan Pink examines the three elements of motivation: Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose.

These are the words that struck a chord with me as I was searching for a name for a new style of networking organisation.

I’ve had a love / hate relationship with business networking for many years so, in the spirit of “take your own advice”, the time had come to create something different.

The result is a business network that will do so much more than networking and will increase the success rate for small businesses (the majority fail before they get to five years old and of those that survive, very few make enough money for their owners to live on).

Members get an unprecedented level of support and advice, from confidential mentoring to business training, networking opportunities, and help to join the dots between all the knowledge, expertise and skills that are available to help businesses to succeed.

If you like the idea of helping more small businesses succeed through autonomy, mastery and purpose, and would like more information about what’s involved in joining Drive, take a look at www.drivethenetwork.com and, wherever you are in the world, get in touch now and I’ll gladly share the details.

Like the logo? It was created by Andy Boothman of busyasab who is not only great at his job but a joy to work with!

Hope to see you involved in Drive soon!
Best wishes
