LeTip Chapters meet weekly to exchange qualified leads, build solid business relationships, develop strong presentation skills and become proficient networkers. Only one representative of any given profession is accepted into a chapter, and members are chosen for their occupational expertise. LeTip was founded by Ken Peterson, "In February of 1978, when I opened the doors to LeTip International, I opened a whole new way of doing business. In the past thirty years I have met thousands upon thousands of entrepreneurs, small business owners, independent sales people and other professionals... many who became chapter members. Almost without exception, each and every one had a dream. A dream to grow their business or practice, a dream to feel encouraged and supported by others in the business community, a dream to make their lives more meaningful. LeTip has become a way for many of these small business people to grow their businesses and fulfill their dreams."
