What we look for in potential franchise partners:
Network In Action is succeeding by partnering with outgoing people
who love to serve customers and make a difference in people's
lives. While "networking" is the business we are in, our focus is
on people and how we can help them grow their business. We welcome
any qualified candidates who are looking to make a difference.
During the franchise application process, we will want you to ask
us a lot of questions, and we will have a lot of questions for you,
too. That's because we want everyone who is part of Network In
Action to truly believe in our mission. We want people who desire
to find success by running their own franchise business and
fulfillment in all parts of their lives as well.
Network In Actions has put our core values at the center of the way
we operate our networking franchise.
There are several attributes we seek in our franchise partners, and
the first one is a true belief that it is in giving where we
receive! We pride ourselves on having a company where owners and
business members recognize that there is a way to focus on giving
first and knowing personal results will follow.
We also look for franchise partners who believe in giving back. We
look for people who enjoy giving back and want that as a framework
for their business and community. The savings needed to start a
Network In Action franchise are modest for the industry-just
$50,000 in liquid assets and $100,000 in net worth -- and we look
for people who will use their business to support their community
as well as themselves.
We look for people who have experience building and leading a team
of people. You don't have to be a great networker to run a NIA
franchise, but it is important to have good people skills to ensure
your group is as strong as possible.
It is helpful to have sales or some customer service experience. To
enjoy the most success in your business, it helps to know how to
"wow" a customer and how to present information in a way that helps
prospects understand what makes NIA work.
You should be a self-starter. While Network In Action will give you
training, tools and support, it's up to you to grasp those tools
and use them to grow your business. As Network In Action continues
to improve its systems, you also need to be someone who is ready to
learn new things and new ways of growing your business.
You need to be energetic and confident. Business owners are often
looking for a person they can trust and want to follow. Remember,
business owners are investing in you and your ability to build and
lead a diverse and dynamic group. You should be able to either run
or hire a person to conduct a monthly meeting. Calm confidence
generates respect, and we want franchise partners who are respected
by their members. We want servant leaders.
Do you match every description? If the answer is no, that's OK.
We're not looking for perfect people, just people who are looking
for a great business idea in their community and people who
recognize the importance of these values and are willing to work
hard to adhere to them.
