Hear It From Our Members:

“The power of small community networking is alive and well in the KTBA! After hosting a quarterly mixer at my gym, KTBA member Amanda Shelley, connected me with a local physical therapist who supports a similar client population. We have since connected in-person and established a collaborative relationship. Participation is what you make it – you have to show up to the mixers and events, get to know the other members, talk about your business and listen to what other businesses are up to – but the effort is worth it!”

—Robin Taylor, member since 2019

“I think KTBA has great potential, as evidenced by its growth in the past few years. I think it’s a great networking opportunity and a way to meet fellow business people who are also neighbors. I think there’s a benefit to knowing local fellow business people… much like a chamber of commerce.”

—Howard Smith, member since 2016

“I moved to San Diego in 2013 and brought my home-based business with me. For a more than a year, I didn’t have a single client in San Diego, and I was getting fewer and fewer leads from connections in my former city. Immediately after becoming involved in the KTBA, I started getting new leads and making friends here in San Diego. 8 years later, I can directly attribute 25% of my revenue, plus dozens of leads, to my involvement in the KTBA.”

—Angela Noble, member since 2015

“I can personally attest to the value of my membership in the KTBA. Through my attendance at mixers and other KTBA events my business has been positively impacted by the relationships I’ve formed with fellow neighborhood business owners.”

-Brad Weber, member since 2015
