Houston, Texas (April 2, 2021) Network In Action (NIA) is a national franchise comprised of over 70 groups across the country that creates marketplace alliances via membership in these elite groups, featuring a qualified business advisor and leadership business coach, to directly manage business owners for mutual benefit. The model is unique to the industry based on its proprietary technology, structured once-a-month gatherings, and active point system referral platform.
NIA expanded the franchise in the Greater Boston area in January 2021, with Sandra Kearney of Westborough, MA launching the Best of Boston-Network In Action group in the MetroWest area. Sandra will continue to scale her NIA franchise throughout the area with the launch of groups in Worcester and Cityside.
The three groups will each be comprised of 25+ local business owners who understand the value of building relationships to help each other succeed. Sandra Kearney, NIA-Franchise Owner, shared that she is looking to bring together people that understand the fact that networking is not about clients, it's about connections and relationships.
As a seasoned business owner and connector, Sandra realized the need in her community for a group that focuses on making connections now more than ever, due to the havoc the pandemic has wreaked on so many business owners. We hope to build something really special in the community where we all support each other and come together to raise up our economy. We also hope to create a regional charity initiative to support those in need in the summer months, shared Sandra Kearney. When interviewed about why she chose Network In Action to support her goals for her community, she stated It is a very unique concept that brings so much value through technology and the ability to meet people nationally. The franchise training and ongoing support is second to none.
Taking a modern approach to networking, NIAs revolutionary internal website and smartphone app allow members to pass and track referrals with ease, start discussions with other members, post status updates and more. The app helps to streamline the referral process for NIA members by giving them the ability to connect in real-time. It is also the only networking organization offering a guaranteed return on investment (ROI) through a simple calculation method based on a member's commitment to attending monthly meetings and passing referrals.
At Network In Action everything we do is centered around bringing value to our members, with Sandras experience as a small business owner and ability to see opportunity even during times of challenge, the leadership and guidance she will bring to her groups will be invaluable, Scott Talley, Founder of Network In Action commented.
