About Us

OUR MISSION: We Believe in Supporting Business Professionals By Providing Them a Referral Marketing Community Allowing Members to Grow Their Bottom-line with Those They Know, Like and Trust.

Chris Williams | Founder, Chairman

SBRG was built on expert marketer Chris Williams’ foundation of success through 5 Star Marketing Community (2006-2017), where small business owners and entrepreneurs master-minded together about current marketing trends and strategies.

Since May 2014, SBRG has road-mapped the successful journey of creating a community allowing members to grow their connections authentically, learn new marketing tools, get business support from their peers and embrace leadership opportunities.

We love our members and appreciate our leaders who give back to others because they care. Our SBRG Community thrives today with over 200 members locally in San Diego, including East and North County, and now expanding into Riverside counties and beyond.

Learn. Network. Grow. Be Inspired.

I had the privileges to work for and be mentored by some of today’s most successful business leaders like Anthony Robbins, and Greg Koch, Co-founder of Stone Brew Co. Both have personally inspired me, when they shared with me their hardships as an entrepreneurship and always told me “Never Quit”.


It was early 2014 when I recognized the gap in the networking market place, that there had to be a small business referral community that was more generous in helping those that wanted to network differently and learn from each other. It was another networking colleague, who sparked the leader within.


April of 2014, the demand was created for something new and I took the charge of being the first leader in SBRG. Our goal was together, our first 3 members, to help design that perfect networking community for those that did not fit in with the higher corporate groups or other groups that seemed to lose direction after a short while.


SBRG was started by a self-made entrepreneur – yet – built by the members who to this day, still love networking together. We cross refer all day long and network together month-after-month. We will continue to bring value to each member in SBRG Referral Chapters and every SBRG event they attend.

Today, Small Business Referral Group will continue reaching out business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals stay in tune with today’s marketing word while enhancing referable relationships.

Our purpose is to help every member grow, both personally and professionally, through our leadership journey together while providing the tools needed to network and do business more efficiently.
