|Marsha Duke Awarded For|
Community Work Helping Women
The Group's events are usually very well attended and supported by people in the community and are a "must attend" for businesses looking to gain more visibility in the community. The B.E.S.T. Networking Group, is lead by Marsha Duke, a tireless award winning community business advocate and real estate professional. Ms. Duke was inspired to start B.E.S.T. because she felt her professional network was limited in our area.
This was a process for her. She realized her network was small in Queens, business wise, and she wanted to expand her base of business contacts. Ms. Duke reveals her conceptual development for her networking group simply called B.E.S.T Networking Group. B.E.S.T. stands for Building Business Entrepreneurs Strong Together.
She adds “It was a bit challenging as my circle was small and all the resources I found where not in Queens. So I decided since there was not much of what I was looking for in terms of networking, I would create it.
And so I created the B.E.S.T Networking Group, in February, 2017, to meet and network with other entrepreneurs. However, in doing so I developed a passion for supporting, encouraging and promoting entrepreneurs like myself. The group started growing and benefiting not just myself but other like-minded individuals that have the same passion as I do.”
The passion for working with like-minded entrepreneurs obviously motivated Ms. Duke to really want to develop a networking group that is a win-win for the members involved in the organization. She states “My desire for support turned into my fuel to have all entrepreneurs and non-entrepreneurs support each other in business and to encourage our community to support each other as African Americans.”

"I became the change I wanted to see in the world adds Marsha."
But what makes the B.E.S.T. Networking Group, so unique - deserving of the name B.E.S.T. we asked Ms. Duke? She responded “what makes B.E.S.T different is the bond that we developed with each other at our monthly meetings. The group created a team of cheerleaders for each of us. And each person refers and supports each other’s business.
We want each other to win, it’s not about any one person but about helping everyone to grow, educate one another, share information and support each other in business. True friendships arrive from that as well.
