Debby Dykes / Network In Action

I’ve been happily married for over 37 years now with two great adult kids and two adorable grandbaby boys.  After 20+ years in the corporate world as a Sales rep and Sales trainer and week after week of travel for a global lab supply company, I decided it was time to retire.  That lasted 2 weeks and I realized I didn’t enjoy just hanging around the house and I really missed the social interaction with people, so I started kicking around the idea of starting my own business and began researching different franchises.  A business broker suggested Network in Action; she loved the business model and had great things to say about the founder and that’s how I met Scott Tally.   Fast forward a couple of months and I am the proud owner of a NIA franchise.  At the time I was new to the Conroe area but what a great way to meet people and give back to my community!  I started building my first networking group in April 2018, launched the first official meeting in August 2018 and have just started recruiting for my 2nd group.
