Testimonials from Members

Find out what our members have said about how CMBC has positively impacted their lives.

‘One thing I have desired of the Lord , That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord , And to inquire in His temple.’ Psalms 27:4 (NKJV); I thank God for what He has done for me. I have truly seen why it is so important to seek God in everything, like I mean everything!! This week has been a testament of following his steps. Listening to the inner voice and knowing exactly what to do next. I am so grateful for this book club (CMBC) it’s only been my fourth month as a member. I have developed immensely and have been transformed after reading the books and learning from others. It’s been such a big blessing to my life. Thank you Blessing and the daily encouragements & inspiration from all the others. Last year I craved to be in a surrounding like this because I knew I was isolated. In January 2019 four or five membership clubs I’d like to be part of, CMBC was one of them. However most meetings were too far for me. To my amazement the Harrow Branch was opened later that year, just ten minutes drive from my house. I knew I was to be part of this club. It took me a while to join but I eventually did in January 2020. God truly directed my steps and knew where I would start soaring. I encourage you all to seek God in all that you do, acknowledge Him in all your ways and He shall direct your paths.

I joined the amazing CMBC in 2018 and it is very empowering club as you get to read, learn different things, meet and learn from powerful speakers. But the best thing of the club is the 90 day challenge which I also took the part in. Through this I found the new direction I should go as the night after pitching for my 90 day challenge I had a clear image/photo which I made into a real picture and from that I realized many things and a new direction. The help from members is amazing and the best is accountability which pushes you to do things, expand your vision and territory. CMBC is not just a networking club, but a place where your dreams will become a reality. Your vision and knowledge will expand.

The Bookclub was God sent. I joined at a time when I needed to take my business to the next level. The help and support I got from members was invaluable. Everyone helps out and all have the same goal, to see each other succeed and excel in their chosen fields. Joining the book club was the best decision I made this decade!”

In February I attended my first BC meeting in Deptford in the. I was invited by a friend. I attended not knowing what to expect, I was a little apprehensive as I was thinking a whole lot of Christians, I hoped it was not going to be a lot of people preaching to me and telling me that I needed to be saved. Any way I attended and I was pleasantly surprised, there were a group of people sitting around a table discussing various topics of business and reviewing a book. Before the meeting concluded people were asked about a business idea that they have to share with the group. We were given the opportunity to pitch our business idea to the rest of the group. Initially I was not going to pitch, then I heard an internal voice say to me ‘why don’t you give a pitch about your reading project. I pitched straight away; no hesitation, and was chosen to do a 90 day challenge where I would be supported advised given the tools to bring my business to life. I was pleased but still sceptical as I thought to myself I do not have a clue what to do next. I was given the relevant information to sign up and become a member. I looked at the fees and thought to myself I can’t pay this as I don’t have the money. I went home and thought some more about it, I was trying to get out of it by having a negative conversation with myself, at the same time I had to remind myself that I had asked God for a Network like the CMBC. There and then I decided that I would give the book club a go pay the monthly fee and attend meetings to receive and offer as much help and support as I can. Since being part of this book club. I have met some wonderful people. I have gained a lot of knowledge about different subjects namely how to manage my finances invest and save. I have started to be coached by Blessing in business and finance which has been very beneficial, blessing has helped me to understand business and what it entails how to go about structuring my business and the steps I need to take to see it coming into being. Blessing is very patient understanding and will always listen and give the advice that is needed signing posting me in the right direction whether to an organisation to get information or to another member of the group who can support me and provide information I am truly grateful to be a member if the book club and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to develop and grow in all areas of their life as there is something for everyone”.

“I launched my business Saver to Investor in November 2018. The CMBC played a significant part in me being able to launch the business and gain the traction that I have gained so far. The members of the CMBC came out to support my first initial event. They have also attended paid workshops that have also benefitted them and allowed them to manage money better. It has felt like a win, win relationship. Often, we have ideas and it’s difficult to move beyond our initial ideas, take action and then remain consistent with the idea. This dilemma is solved through the 90-day challenge at the CMBC. The 90-day challenge which is a feature of the CMBC, encourages you to develop your business idea over 90 days. This really helped me to develop my business idea and allowed me to grow in confidence, in terms of putting my idea out to several people and then going on to implementing the idea. If it hadn’t been for the CMBC I would not have come along as far as I have. I am grateful that it exists and appreciative that it has been the support that I needed it to be when I need it the most.“

Annette Galloway, Saver to Investor

“It’s finally here, a day that seemed so far away. I can’t believe that 90-days have gone by!! When I started I was not exactly sure where to begin, or how to begin and now… well my 90-day challenge was to move from being Self-employed to Business Owner and to empower and encourage 1000 young people to let their light shine through my business. Thank you so much for this 90-day Challenge CMBC, for everyone’s encouragements along the way. It was truly a great challenge for me and glad I took part in it.“
