Begins with Family
Working with you since 2014

We connect family owned businesses
with their community to help them grow .

Join Our Hive

We're not your average networking group.

We don't only host networking events where everyone stands around noshing hors d'oeuvres, staring uncomfortably at each other. Begins With Family does host networking events, but they differ from other such meetings because our dynamic founder (aka Top Worker Bee and Hive Queen), Rebecca Scott, actually introduces new members to other members. Yes, she does.

Another reason why we differ from other networking organizations? Begins With Family will promote your business to other members so that they, in turn, will promote your business to their family and friends. That's how we help you build your base clients/customers. Begins With Family is also busy building an extensive network of our own via social media: Facebook, Instagram, and our newly-launched YouTube Channel. Traffic to our website is steadily increasing as well. As we build our hive, your business grows.

We will work for you and with you to build your base. Join our hive today!

    Got great support from Benefits By Artzberger. Lesa was very helpful in guiding me with how I should invest money to plan for my retirement and future. So glad to be connected through the Begins with Family group!

    The BWF sports outing (at P2K Gun Range) was awesome! We all had a great time. The guys especially loved the shot gun skeet experience. I know we will all be back for more. I had forgotten how much fun it was to shoot in a safe well organized venue. Love the owner, what a great guy.

    I’ve used Sitko Plumbing & Drain Services to help my customers with their plumbing needs. As a Begins with Family member it is a pleasure to refer customers to fellow members and their great services.

    I had laminate flooring installed by Cole's Fine Flooring in my office area. The end result was better than I had expected. The installation was done as scheduled. The combination of flooring and baseboard is beautiful. We knew that there would be baseboard but we had not selected any particular one. I was expecting the cheap rubber type you see in so many places. This was wide and substantial and very complimentary to the flooring. We are so pleased with the baseboard we got. The installer cleaned up after himself very well. I am very happy with the product, sales staff and installer.

    Just want to send a line about a new member, Dr. Stephen Chan of Smilehaven Dental Center. As you know, I chipped my front tooth. Not good! I'll just cut to it and say that I am very pleased with his work and the cost was quite reasonable! Dr. Chan was personable and his staff was great! Thanks for making our introduction and also for the great network you have developed in BWF.

    Sitko plumbing help me out of a tough situation. My client was ready to move into their new home when it was discovered that the gas line to the dryer and fireplace was not to code and needed to be corrected. Sitko sent one of their techs out within one hour. The tech was very capable and diagnosed the issue at hand and worked to correct the issue. They were great to work with and I would refer them to anyone I know with gas or plumbing needs.

    I recently purchased a much needed mattress from Mattress Makers, a family-run business. Sam, one of the family members, was extremely knowledgeable and helped me pick not only the perfect mattress but the perfect pillow!

    We had a members meeting at Mattress Makers in La Mesa and it was awesome because they let us try all the mattresses, told us about the differences and really made it easy to find the right product. I bought a pillow - great quality and price - and they told me I could come back anytime to add or take out filling if I needed an adjustment. I've never experienced that kind of quality care in a Mattress store.

    Melissa (of Oggi’s Pizza in Liberty Station) and I arranged a wonderful breakfast this morning. It was delicious and each of our 25 guests said they had a great time! Thanks, Rebecca and the Begins with Family team, for your help as well.
