JNET’s Four Questions


By Jackie Mendelson, JNET Chairperson


Hi, Everyone. I hope your Seder tables were surrounded with family and friends, warmth and love. In the spirit of Passover, here are some “universal” JNET questions that do not normally get asked and answered at our chapter meetings. Please read this message to the end. Here are the Four Questions:


Q: Why am I getting emails from members I have never even met?


A: Spamming JNET members is a breach of JNET policy. JNET members are not allowed to use the membership roster, JNET attendance lists, or email addresses from member profiles to send business solicitations or personal eblasts unless permission from the member has been granted before the email is sent.


You can use JNET’s Facebook page ( and LinkedIn group page ( to communicate about your business or offer benefits to JNET members. Please limit posts to once a week.


Q: Can I speak at any chapter I want, even if it is not the chapter I first joined?


A: Yes. Once you join JNET, all chapters are open to you to attend and to become a speaker. The rules are that you cannot speak two times in a row at the same chapter and you have two opportunities to speak in a 12-month period (one time every six months). No chapter should suggest or require a change of chapter affiliation in order to present a 10-minute speech.


Q: I have a profession and a business. Can I talk about both in my 30-second intro?


A: A membership in JNET allows you to represent only one business or one profession when doing your 30-second introduction. Take the time to schmooze before and after the meetings to anyone about anything you would like to talk about.


Q: I am not getting any business from JNET. Am I doing something wrong?


A: Maybe! The questions to ask yourself are:

  • How much of my business and how many referrals have I given to JNET members since I joined?
  • Have I maximized opportunities at meetings and JNET Connect get-togethers (aka troikas) so JNET members can get to know me and trust that I will come through for them with my business commitments?
  • Am I attending JNET meetings on a consistent basis?
  • Do I sit with different people at each meeting so I am making new connections?


JNET provides a level playing field for all members to cultivate, refer, gain, and retain business, but you have to be a player and forge those relationships! By attending meetings on a consistent basis and more than one meeting a month, you will meet more members and have the possibility of more referrals.


I hope I have provided some clarity. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at


As we marvel at our ancestors unwavering belief in Adonai and their fierce struggle for freedom, please have a wonderful Pesach. Chag Sameach.

Chairperson of the Board
