  1. Thanks for setting up this site, Merrill. I hope it helps to get the word out. Tradeport Connections has been a big part of my business. Not only has the group provided quality referral business for me, but it has also provided a network of professionals I can call on when my clients need specialized help. Thank you to everyone for their support.

  2. As you pointed out, having an “on-call” network of professionals you can trust to refer your family, clients, and friends to is worth its weight in gold.

    I think many business professionals understimate and underutilize the power of these relationships to grow their businesses.


  3. Tradeport Connections, and the relationships I have built within the group, has been an intrigal part of the success of my insurance agency. Last year we finished as a top-ten agency within our corporate distribution channel and we are on pace to crack the top-five this year… I attribute the bulk of our success to the referrals (and referrals-from-referrals) generated within Tradeport Connections. What is even more rewarding to me is having the ability to provide many quality referrals to my fellow TPC members. I know my clients will be throughly satisfied with the professionalism, knowledge and follow-up of my fellow business partners.
