Entrepreneurs with a vision for changing their community will find a perfect fit as a Network in Action (NIA) group leader. Scott Talley, the founder of NIA, stated:
“Everything we do is built around adding value for our members, as opposed to just putting on a show for the guests.” Business networking no longer needs to focus solely on maximizing transactions; it can help build better relationships that strengthen a community.
Franchisees who run an NIA meeting have the flexibility to create the perfect work-life balance and build a career with a solid income. An NIA franchise does not require a physical place of business or employees and can be run from a home office. “Buying or renting real estate, hiring employees and retaining inventory all keep a business owner tethered to their home base. It can be incredibly difficult to bring in a significant income and maintain free time,” Talley explained.
After franchisees complete a 40-hour Network In Action comprehensive training program run by corporate staff, they are certified experts in business networking.
NIA offers ongoing training to franchisees, and the company’s e-learning platform is available 24/7 for further support and guidance. Franchisees have all the tools they need to confidently get their networking business up and running.
One of the biggest qualities that attract members to Network In Action is the monthly meetings that are scheduled, as opposed to weekly gatherings. NIA corporate offers group leaders the flexibility to hold meetings at a time that makes the most sense for the franchisees and members. Currently, all NIA meetings are 90 minutes long and are held between 3 and 5 p.m. to encourage business owners, the more experienced members, to attend and get the maximum benefit from networking. That time slot also encourages members to stick around and get to know each other, without the pressure of going back to work. Better connections lead to more effective relationships that benefit everyone in the group.
As a group leader, you build a group of members you want to work with on a monthly basis and create relationships that will last a lifetime. With a modest franchise fee of $40,000, a group leader can establish up to three NIA monthly meetings within a determined area.
Members can come from any location, but each franchise has a set area determined by population density. NIA group leaders can expect to be up and running in as little as three months after training. NIA groups average a 12-to-15-month period before they become fully established with members.
