Many of us enjoy meeting and creating lasting relationships with other business owners but would prefer more productive results after attending a networking meeting. That was Scott Talley’s view, and the inspiration for founding Network In Action (NIA). “For months I kept thinking to myself, there has to be a better way to network.” The more I thought about it, the more I realized I did not hate networking. I hated the way it was being offered.”
Scott stumbled upon a thread on the internet about other business owners’ frustrations of others about their participation in networking groups. Their issues included early morning meetings, mandatory weekly attendance, inexperienced volunteer leadership, a lack of technology in the industry and a massive time commitment on a member’s part. Solving these issues was just the starting point for Network In Action.
Professional relationships can be the best way to market our businesses, strategize and gain valuable perspectives and insights to overcome obstacles and move our businesses forward.
The NIA mission states: “It’s our goal to put action into every networking meeting.” Each meeting is carefully structured to give members time to effectively network and leave with added value for their businesses. NIA meetings are monthly, as opposed to weekly, run by highly trained professionals and employ state-of-the-art technology. Background checks are required for members.
Network In Action is looking for franchisees with a passion for leadership. Each franchise owner has a servant heart, is extremely loyal, and loves to help others.
An NIA franchise requires no physical place of business and can be run from a home office. Without these added expenses, a franchisee can expect to be up and running in one or two months. Continued online courses keep franchisees informed of changes and updates so meetings are always run with the most current practices.
