what makes thrive! arundel different?


THRIVE! Business Communities offer distinct advantages to it's members.  How?


  • Culture:  ​Thrive! is a community of professionals who truly believe that if we can help each other grow our businesses, the returns will be ten-fold.  
  • Education:   Throughout the year and at every meeting, we provide an educational and professional development component to help our members grow their business and enhance their professionalism.  
  • Quality vs. Quantity:  Our group leaders are not paid or incented to drive members, unlike many referral groups whose chairs/leaders are paid to drive members into the group.  Our  leaders are dedicated to finding quality members, not driving a quantity of members.
  • ​Not Just A Networking Group:  Our groups host events throughout the year designed to help members get to know each other on a more personal level through social events throughout the year. 
  • Charity:  We support a variety of charitable organizations throughout the year in our local community.  
THRIVE! Business Communities are like-minded professionals who are seeking to build their business and develop a strong network of warm lead referrals.  Members value and respect the time and effort required to build a community of this type and are committed to understanding and helping their peers build their business as well.  Thrive! members will demonstrate professionalism, integrity and support at all times, with the goal of inspiring each of us to grow our business!

SUZANNE RATTI

Founder, Thrive! Arundel

For over 20 years, I have worked in the Baltimore/Washington corridor and developed a strong professional network with the belief that every connection is an opportunity to learn, to grow and to connect with like-minded individuals.

Some of these connections have led to business opportunities, some have led to personal growth, and others have become fast friends.

Thrive! Business Communities was established to create a different kind of networking group.  A group that would:


  • truly be focused on business development efforts, not just handing out business cards,
  • have educational components designed to help members grow personally and professionally,
  • provide members the ability to give back to the local communities in which they live and work.


Thrive! is network of local professionals who not only want to build their business, but who want to learn and be part of a Thriving community!   


If this sounds like something you would like to be part of, please join us!
