    Network In Action Franchise Meets with Franchise Interviews

    in Entrepreneur

    We are meeting Scott Talley, CEO and founder of Network in Action. Network In Action Franchise (NIA) applies innovative principles to an industry that has long needed an update! There are an estimated 28 million small business in the United States and every one of them needs some type of marketing plan. According to their research if a business just has the funds for one marketing effort, networking provides the greatest return on investment!  Network In Action, a Houston-based networking franchise that has revolutionized the industry with its innovative use of technology, has created a Try Before You Buy program. The initiative gives entrepreneurs the option to go through a day in the life of a being a Network In Action group leader/franchisee, try the business model out by going through a five day training, recruit members, host their own meeting and then decide if they want to be a part of Network In Action within 48 hours. There is no fee associated with this initiative. 
    The average business owner does not have 100 plus hours annually to attend weekly business networking meetings. NIA’s monthly meetings opens up an entire new market of business owners who wish to network. Additionally, by offering monthly meetings NIA groups tend to enjoy more owners as members than a group that meets weekly.

    Close Up Radio Spotlights Suzy Marsoubian of We Make Differences

    in Business

    Cambridge, MA – ?Suzy Marsoubian is the founder and the chief executive officer of We Make Differences, a proudly woman- and immigrant-owned digital technology sales and solutions firm with clients throughout the northeast United States.
    “When I go into a new account, I don't think about the money,” says Suzy. “I think ‘What can I do to help these people? Where I can save money and get money back to them so they can put that money into their business and create jobs.’ I help your business through these products, but I'm also trying to make a difference within that, by giving people opportunities.”
    With 30 years of excellence in the copier, printer, and imaging industry marked by career-spanning client relationships and a personable approach to account management, Suzy launched We Make Differences with the intention to do just that: make a difference.
    “I've made so many differences for my clients because I was true to my word and they got a return on investment,” says Suzy, “but I'm one of those people that wants to make difference both professionally and personally. I want to give an opportunity to people like me, to inner city people or immigrants that don't have a degree.”
    After overcoming decades of institutional challenges in her male-dominated industry, including rampant sex discrimination and sexual harassment, she strives to set an example of strong and equitable leadership.
    “I'm most proud of is how much I love and embrace helping people,” says Suzy. “I'm growing this business so I can someday give all my time and dedication to helping others.”

    How to open the eyes of a judge in foreclosure cases!

    in Finance

    You received a loan, didn’t you?
    You didn’t pay, did you?
    You signed the note, didn’t you?
    You signed the mortgage didn’t you?
    Why all of those questions are irrelevant. how to instruct the court and convince the judge to rule accordingly is a skill that most people, including lawyers don’t possess, because they share a mythology with  the judge that the loan accounts actually exist. And they consent to this myth because they can’t imagine how it could be otherwise.
