•     Here's What People Are Saying About NRG...

I was impressed by Mike the minute I attended my first meeting, and in less than 24 hours I was a sold member. The immediate feeling of welcome and appreciation was something I have never felt as a member of other networking groups, and coming away with 3 referrals as a visitor was mind-blowing! My business is poised to thrive and grow, and with my new family at NRG, so is my faith in people.


Tony Peltier, Tony Goes There LLC

“I used to believe networking would be difficult and take much too long to get results, then I was introduced to Mike Weiner at NRG. Within my first networking call with Mike six weeks ago, I was introduced to three people, two of whom became clients. Since then, through Mike’s “warm introductions” via 3-way text, I have found that these intros produce near-immediate responses that turn into actual face-to-face Zoom calls, creating a great way to meet other professionals. Even when a referral does not become a client, it creates a strong, ever-expanding partnership of business professionals who all are working together to help each other grow. Thank you, Mike and Network Referral Group!”


Pat Taylor, Taylor Virtual Group



“NRG is a fantastic networking group that is all about giving referrals and sending a vast amount of positive energy on a worldwide basis. NRG is not just a networking group; it's a business class... with class. What I mean is that I've been in other networking groups where people come and go, never show their faces, schedule 1:1 sessions to sell me their "business opportunities," or leave when they're done reading their 5-minute pitch from their computer screens. Whereas NRG is all about teaching you the value of how to be a go-giver than just a go-getter. We don't just refer each other with WARM leads, we also talk about the importance of following up and building momentum with our businesses. Speaking of momentum, the NRG Extravaganzas and other events are absolutely worth attending. I've met so many like-minded individuals at NRG events who have referred me to many other businesses on a global scale.


“When I attended my first NRG meeting, I was greeted with a warm welcome and a sincere smile from the CEO, Mike Weiner. Mike is the type of guy you want to connect with, mainly because he understands that helping others get what they want in life will ultimately help you get what you want in life (and business). Thank you, Mike, for treating us like abundant professionals like yourself, and introducing me to your invaluable NRG network!!”


Zohair “Z” Yasin, Z World Webs

"I was truly impressed with my first visit to NRG. Not only was the atmosphere warm and welcoming, but the other members are honestly there to help each other, not just pitch and run. I have done many networking events online this past couple of years. None had the same impact and community as NRG. I'm committed to up-leveling my business this quarter and I knew this was the catalyst to do it. Oh, and I closed my first deal from this network within hours of signing up. 200% return on investment! How's that for ROI? Thank you for the amazing welcome, Mike and crew!"

“NRG is such an incredible networking experience! It is all about connecting and helping others. Mike Weiner is an expert in connecting people and has built an incredible community of people with a system that works!”


Michelle Lee Myrter, Michelle Lee Business Coaching LLC

"Here's why it’s so important to surround yourself with like-minded people who are willing to help you succeed in your business. Thanks to Mike and NRG, I had the wonderful opportunity to be connected with a Doctor of Chiropractic who is willing and wanting to be a referral partner with Kayla Barnes Fitness! This is super awesome! I’m excited for this beautiful opportunity and all the wonderful clients that I will have the pleasure of working with in the future! Thanks, NRG for the connection!" 


Kayla Barnes, Kayla Barnes Fitness, LLC

"Today was my introduction to NRG and my very first meeting.  I have to say that it was phenomenal and amazing! I made new business friends and got business referrals --referrals that I quickly connected to and now have a relationship with. What kind of group has that kind of sincerity and power? None that I have ever been a part of until now! If you have any doubts about joining NRG, I can honestly say that you will not be disappointed with what you get from this group of amazing people. Mike & NRG, you are awesome!”


Dianne Shehadeh, Dragonfly Mobile Notary Public

“NRG is a great networking experience filled with dynamic, hard-working professionals. The innovative approach to networking and referrals is the missing link in the traditional networking chain. Every time I attend, I feel energized to expand my connections base and improve my business. Joining this group is one of the best investments a business owner can make.”


Annamarie Buonocore, Senior Care Authority Peninsula & In Flight USA

“I'm so, so excited that I was introduced to NRG! Before becoming a member, I visited an NRG meeting, and I was introduced to Jermaine in Arizona. Within 4 weeks he became my client! I’ve been a full-fledged member of NRG now for 2 months, and within that time I’ve connected with two people in Indiana who have also become my clients! I cannot express how thankful I am to be a part of this amazing Networking organization and to be able to connect with people nationwide to promote their businesses! NRG has lit a fire under me!!!! Thank you, Mike!!”


Tina Holt, Vivial

“It took me only 2 weeks to get my first sale that came from a referral from NRG. Mike Weiner is the real deal; if you run a business and need to get plugged in immediately, this is the best way to do it.


I’m also learning more about who my ideal referral partners and clients are, thanks to the PINball system. NRG is one of the best and smallest investments I’ve made in my business, and is turning out to be one of the most fruitful."


John Al-Jazrawi, Custom Coverage Solutions

"I'd like to reflect on why I chose NRG as a networking group rather than another networking option. I was compelled to move forward and join for several reasons. First, there was the appeal of the spontaneity of the organization. People were friendly, unassuming, and without any attitude towards me, a newcomer. Their diversity of occupations, too, was attractive.


While there was structure, that structure wasn't a hindrance or, in any way threatening or daunting. I wasn't besieged by a litany of rules. I was welcomed from the beginning and, to further ingrain my decision to move ahead as a member, I was actually given a list of referrals immediately, even as a visitor! After joining, I was further given a plethora of names of referral partners with online introductions through the group leader, Mike Weiner. I'm in the process of sealing 10 zoom call dates with these suggested names...incredible, as I only joined a few days ago!

There is no hesitation on my part.  I'm thrilled that I've joined NRG, and I know the same would be true of any other member."

“I am very grateful to be a part of NRG! I knew, after attending my first meeting that NRG was different and something I should be a part of.  I've been blown away by what it's done for my business" and by the number of quality referrals I've received in my first 2 months! 

"I greatly look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!”

Tony Mecadon, InPhone

"I've been an entrepreneur the last 9 years and can say having a strong network can truly help your business. With that being said, I have never come across a network leader like Mike Weiner or a network like NRG. One of the very first things I noticed was the little bits of knowledge and insight that were naturally given from the relationships that had been formed. This was before any referrals had been passed along. I also like the fact that most referrals were three-way texts, which sets up a healthy introduction. Then I joined and got 20 three-way texts right away set up by the founder himself. Mike is revolutionizing how networking is being done just by keeping things light, clear, and actionable. It makes you want to add value to NRG to keep what Mike has started going strong for years to come."


Christopher Shaw, The Infinity Firm

“Here’s the reason I joined NRG: Mike’s energy is unprecedented, and it is the networking group I have experienced where you get the most value from referrals. The culture is amazing and attracts high achievers in their industry. I highly recommend NRG to anyone looking for a great lead source, to generate strong relationships, and to grow your business.”


Matt Balducci, BNC Strategic Partners

“NRG has really made networking and meeting new professionals easy for me! At first, I was hesitant about joining any type of networking group, because I don’t have much time to network, let alone time to travel and go to different networking events. But with NRG I could really meet people and make great connections without having to leave my house. I love the fact that we just keep growing, and that you can attend different meetings in different locations across the United States. What I love most about NRG is that everyone is so positive and uplifting, and that’s great energy for making amazing connections!”


Bhumi Patel, Sparklight Marketing

“I had sworn off of networking groups! After 26 years as an entrepreneur, I thought had been to all of them, and I was DONE! But after months of quarantining, a friend I admire very much invited me to visit NRG. Since it was only an hour on Zoom, I figured -- why not?


From the moment I hopped on the NRG meeting, I was impressed with the people: their energy, how they were giving each other names and numbers, and truly helping each other find connections to grow their businesses. The members were sincere, fun, professional, and clearly committed to assisting one another.


Since joining I’ve encouraged my Arbonne team members to join NRG, because it has been such a boost for my business! Not only have I made connections across the country, added new clients, and grown my business, but I have also met some of the greatest people and made life-long friends. If you’re not part of NRG, you need to be! Mike and his members will take very good care of you, and it is definitely money well spent!”


Robin Corbin, Arbonne International

I have been a member of NRG for the past 2 years. It has been a fantastic forum to meet, develop partnerships and to share ideas with other business professionals. NRG has been growing in leaps and bounds, due to our charismatic leader Mike Weiner and all the sincere and dedicated members.”


Sue Harbina, HealyWorld, USA

“When I joined NRG, I was pleasantly surprised by the focused leadership of Michael Weiner as well as the welcoming team of fellow business professionals. NRG is an organization of like-minded professionals determined to help all members. As a result, I have received many ideas on how to promote and brand my business. In addition, I have been given numerous opportunities to connect with potential clients. NRG is an ever-growing organization but the leadership still remains close to its members.”


Sheila Sembly-Crum, Zoetic Wellness Center

“NRG is unlike any other experience I have had in 20 years of networking. In less than 3 months my business has grown immensely, and it continues to accelerate. Every week I meet and become friends with like-minded entrepreneurs who are invested in my growth. It doesn't feel like a networking group, although it is national and now in Canada. This feels like a family. The groups and events are motivating, interesting, and fun. 

Motivated and passionate entrepreneurs - you all belong here!!! Anyone in the lead buying business owes it to themselves to come visit as a guest. Once you join, I assure you that you will never have to buy leads again. NRG is my happy place.”


Sharie Helfand, Chesapeake Insurance Solutions

"I have joined many networking groups in the past but nothing comes close to what NRG has to offer. With the referrals I have received, I paid off my annual membership within two months, and the rest is gravy!


Mike Weiner is master connector, networker, influencer, and author! He loves serving people and does so with a heart of gratitude and servitude. 

Bonus: We all have lots of fun! — feeling blessed."


Maurice Werner, Werner Technology Solutions

Video Testimonial From Bobbie Price

Let me first say thank you to Mike for the opportunity to network our resources together. Plus, I wanted to say thank you for our friendship. As your ‘brother from another mother,’ we have done quite well together. Within 90 days of being a new member, I was able to do over $11,000 dollars in revenue. In the 16 months that I have been a member, I have added about $40,000 of revenue to the magazine. I am not sure what others might experience but my $1,000 dollar investment (year one and then my annual renewal for year two) led to about $40,000 dollars in new business, which is not a bad return!”

Bobbie Price, Fulton Living

"My experience with NRG has been nothing less than phenomenal! Mike and the NRG members truly care about your success and show it with action, in the form of real, warm referrals. Since I joined, I’ve converted many leads, and the number of warm referrals grows each day. NRG is different from other networking groups, because each member truly cares about contributing to the success of the other members. My business will reach new heights this year, and NRG will be central to that growth.”


Forrest Huguenin, Org4Life Solutions

“Since activating my connection with Mike andNRG, I have seen a consistent increase of meaningful relationships. I believe people would like to live healthy! There’s a positive storm of energy going on in the world and in NRG. We live in communities; our individual bodies are made up of communities! Our bodies, souls, spirits, and minds are hungering, thirsting for healthy love of ourselves and others. I’m grateful to be a part of the NRG Community. It’s AMAZING, IT’S ENERGY! LIVE HEALTHY, MY FRIENDS!"


Ray Coggin, Cellular Health Coaching

“I have been an NRG member for over two years. I have made great contacts and formed partnerships with a diversity of businesses. I know of no better way to meet and connect with business owners and representatives in such an engaging, friendly and professional environment.”


Joe Auslander, DEX Imaging

“I have been with NRG since late 2018. I have met some wonderful individuals. I have been able to connect with so many different small businesses and self-employed people. If you want to network with a group of professionals who look out for your best interest and are your sales team, then look no further. The best part now is I can visit groups in many different states. Thank you to Mike and the NRG family!”


Jodi Marlow, US Health Advisors

“NRG… Where do I even begin?! When my friend introduced me to Mike, I instantly knew we’d click. I won’t lie, as a work-from-home-mom, I had hesitations as a but Mike reassured me, and I just energetically knew this was the place for me. I’m a firm believer that we get what we ask for, and for months I’d been saying, ‘I need to get out of my network.  I want to meet new people.’ From my first visit I felt like I belonged. Every member made me feel welcome and they were eager to help each other, too. I have yet to leave a meeting not feeling encouraged, fired up, and of course not without new leads and ideas. The knowledge in the group alone is outstanding! It’s incredible what happens when people get together to help each other! The NRG energy is not like any I have experienced before. Whether you’re a novice or expert networker. this is the place to be!”


Jasmine “Jaz” Gonzalez, Arbonne International

“Within the first 20 minutes of attending an NRG networking event, I was hooked! Mike’s effervescent personality and his strong belief in the Law of Attraction pulled me in. Mike and the group truly have a mindset of “The more you give, the more you get.” I received 3 referrals during my first visit, and I have gotten at least 3 or 4 more at each meeting ever since. I have conducted one-to-ones with members of the group, and business has been generated as a result. All this has happened within my first 3 weeks of joining! I cannot wait to see what the rest of 2021 holds for me!”


Janis Thom, LegalShield

"Mike Weiner is the king of networking, and he makes everyone at NRG feel like royalty. Mike attracts members who care more about giving than receiving.

NRG is a fantastic forum to share insight, learn from people in diverse industries and fulfills the networking opportunities that we have missed during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

 Rebecca & Keith Scott/TALLsmall Productions.

"Mike Weiner and NRG are infectious. NRG will grow on you until your business is tapping markets you never thought about. His energy will rub off on you to the point you may not need coffee. Mike is the Energizer Bunny with an atomic battery. He is constantly seeking out new contacts to share with the group.


Five hundred dollars a year is a small price to pay for your company’s success. Just think about your advertising budget, then compare the success rate to a year of membership with NRG. 

Art Garroway/Copper by Art

After joining the Dallas NRG a few months ago, I want to say that it’s been an absolute pleasure working with Mike Weiner and NRG. Being a member of NRG provides you with exposure to many other small, medium, and large businesses locally and nationwide. It is a great opportunity to expand your network with like-minded professionals. Joining NRG will definitely help you connect with great entrepreneurs, build business relationships, and find new opportunities for your business."

Maribel Rodriguez/Sunshine Personnel Solutions, LLC

I joined NRG (Network Referral Group) in late 2019 while looking for new ways to network and meet potential clients as an insurance agent representing carriers outside of my resident state. Here it is, more than a year later, and in an ongoing pandemic, we are able to network and meet with individuals nationally and now internationally from the comfort of our virtual offices, thanks to Mike’s forward thinking!


There is no way for me to capture the level of efficiency and potential for success with this format. I also appreciate the reduced carbon footprint of not driving to meetings and not dealing with traffic issues, tolls, gas, auto expenses, etc.! I’m able to use the I save by not driving from meeting to meeting to exercise. I can even attend a meeting while I’m walking in the sunshine! I feel there is so much value to the way we are working now, that there is no getting that genie back in the bottle!

Faye Wilson/US Health Advisors

“I love Mike Weiner’s energy. His leadership and vision for NRG is amazing. I have never seen a networking group that truly networks like NRG! If you want to grow your pipeline and meet some amazing people, contact Mike now! It didn’t take but one visit to know I wanted to be a part of this amazing group of people!

Francine Ivey/Southwestern Consulting

“At my very first NRG meeting, I got a client. NRG creates a space where business professionals help each other to grow the businesses in a way that’s organic and powerful. I would recommend NRG to anybody who wants to grow their business.”

Umar Hameed/CEO, No Limits Selling

"NRG has been a phenomenal experience for me. I love that the NRG community is like a family, and everyone genuinely wants to support one another. I also appreciate the foundation of the group being built upon The Law of Attraction.


This is a networking group that stands out above other networking groups and platforms because it is professional, yet relaxed and enjoyable. I have experienced great success in my business by simply connecting with NRG members and connecting with the referrals I receive from them.


Mike has a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. He is working diligently to take NRG not only nationwide, but internationally too! I am very grateful I was invited to this AMAZING networking group, and I look forward to what the future holds for each and every one of us."

“My name is Tara Flannery and I am a photographer from Maryland. I met Mike Weiner through Facebook. He really liked my pictures and wanted me to join Network Referral Group. I didn't know what NRG was about and didn't have much interest at first, but after a lot of persistence, I joined a zoom call. I can tell you that it was the best decision I ever made! Everyone was so welcoming and so helpful!

Before I joined NRG, I had no idea where to even start my company, and with the help of Mike and other members, now I have a plan. I am so thankful to everyone for all of their help. One of the best things about this company is how caring everyone is. It honestly feels like a family and it makes you want to take care of and help one another. This has been such a blessing in my life, and I am so thankful for NRG!”

Tara Flannery/Flannery Fotography

"I have been a part of NRG for several years. It is truly a great way to keep your business opportunities flowing. Being in sales, this is one of my key sales funnels. You will meet great people, and we all are motivated to help each other. The great thing is that NRG is growing and expanding all over the country. You can now connect with more people virtually than ever. The nominal annual fee is well worth the return you will get!"

Brian Parnell/Cornerstone

"I am a licensed acupuncturist and wellness consultant. I joined NRG because I was looking for a way to connect with fellow business owners, build my network, and support those around me, and it was the best decision I could have made! Everyone in this organization is so friendly and excited to support one another. Even after being in the group for such a short time, I have already made invaluable connections! I'm so grateful for this organization that I know is going to help take my businesses to the next level and thrive.

I tried out other groups and once I found NRG I knew it was the right fit for me. The members of NRG are incredibly open, warm, and helpful individuals who are eager to help everyone, and the energy is absolutely contagious! Mike, the CEO of NRG, sets a standard of professionalism, fun, and positive energy that makes the meetings engaging and motivating. I always end each meeting feeling excited to continue networking and supporting others as much as they support me. 

When one of us wins, everyone wins, and that mentality is authentically displayed in NRG. 

​Through this organization, I have not only made connections that have influenced my business, but I have gained job opportunities that I would never have had without this group!  Joining this networking group was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! If you’re looking to expand your network and business and make lifelong work friends and family who care deeply for you, NRG is the home for you!”  

Hannah Jefferson/Soul and Lune Wellness

"NRG has done more for my business than any other networking group, and I think I’ve tried them all! NRG is the only group where I walk away with the names and phone numbers of actual warm prospects. Mike Weiner is always warm, generous, and the most hard-working man I know. Slow down, Mike! " 

Michelle Wilson/ACN

"I have been with NRG for about three years. There is no other organization like NRG. Yes, there are other networking organizations but you won't find one the has progressed as fast and far as this one. Because of the pandemic, NRG got catapulted into the 21st century by going virtual, under the guidance of Mike Weiner who believes that EVERYONE is important in the organization and willing to help ALL. The success is because of our shared value that no one in the organization wants to see another member fail. We must stick together through these challenging times to survive and grow stronger. If you want your business to succeed, then you need NRG in your corner. Don't delay. Call Mike or me today and join. It will be the best business decision you will ever make."

Rich Sease/Prominence Security, Inc.

"NRG is a fantastic professional networking group. It is structured to drive leads and power partners to you, while also making an efficient use of your time. I have been a part of NRG for less than a month, and I have already made enough from great leads to pay for my membership for the next 2 years! I would suggest that everyone should at least look at what NRG has to offer. Thank you, Mike Weiner, for the opportunity to join, and I look forward to even more success from being a member of your Colorado group."

Trevor Jackson/Five Rings Financial

"There are times when life shows us the power of the presence of Love in the world. Meeting Mike Weiner has been a profound act of Divine Intervention for the purpose of creating more abundance in our world. Mike is a gifted connector. He is learning and understanding that the only way to be successful in life and in business is to have a genuine heart for serving the needs of others. His growing commitment to this is exploding NRG’s ability to gain traction and effectiveness in the world; even during a pandemic.


Mike has been through the fire in his life, and is more keenly aware of its fragility. He knows and understands that every day is a gift. He listens, encourages, empowers, and holds your Dream with you, and even for you, until you can hold it for yourself.


If you are considering aligning yourself with NRG, I would encourage you to take a hard look at yourself and your current efforts and motivations. And if I may suggest to you (as I did with Mike) stop selling and start serving. Only in this way will your business grow. And to all new members of NRG – congratulations and buckle up! The world needs your goodness and your services. Let Mike teach you how it’s done."

Raphael Aguon/Life Mastery Consultant/Dream Builder Coach/Licensed Occupational Therapist/Speaker/Trainer/Author/Lover of Life

“Mike has been an instrumental part of my career transition and I certainly owe a good amount of credit to him and his networking company, NRG. The companies and individuals in NRG have been nothing short of professional and wonderful! Thank you, Mike!”
Pablo Troncoso/Sales Boomerang/Troncoso Growth Agency
"In the last 4 weeks, I’ve attended two Network Referral Group (NRG) events. The first event I attended was the NRG Fall Extravaganza, and I was very impressed. I got to learn a bit about NRG and the man who started it all 20 years ago, Mike Weiner. The energy in the room was spectacular, and I left with quite a few promises of later phone calls, which I’ve already made good on.

Last night, I got to attend a regular NRG meeting. The premise of NRG is like some other groups, but it felt different to me. As everyone began introducing themselves, it was awesome to watch Mike lean in, and suggest possible referrals for people. I was just a visitor, but as I talked about my business, he came up with two people who might
be interested in my services! Last night’s meeting was very quick; we wrapped up in an hour. But wow, what an amazing hour. I left with two referrals and a phone call I still need to schedule. How great is that?

I never really liked the idea of networking groups where you have to show up and make a certain number of referrals, or only one person of each business type can join. My fear is always “What if they aren’t the best person for me to refer to?” But NRG isn’t like that. Yes, they do limit based on industry, but no one was taking tally for referrals made. Although if they had been, Mike would’ve won for sure! I also like that there aren’t any penalties for being unable to make meetings some times. I’m married with four kids -- things come up!

If you’re looking for a group to help you grow your business, I strongly suggest you consider NRG.​"

Ruthie Bowles/Defy The Status Quo

"“I joined NRG in the Spring of 2014. I was transitioning from my hourly bartender position to my commission-based sales career as an Insurance Broker. I quickly created believability in myself and my business. After a few meetings, I learned how to effectively use the Pinball method to my advantage by being as specific as possible about which

industries I was looking to develop and which power partners I have been successful with. Joining NRG was a no-brainer for me. I constantly find out about exclusive volunteer opportunities and networking events that I wouldn’t be invited to if I hadn’t joined. I also get never-ending leads from people that are happy to warm them up for me if needed. The people I have met through NRG have shown nothing but love and have been so happy to meet me one-on-one — just because I am a part of NRG. Bottom line: it works! I’m excited to continue participating in my groups, and I’m looking forward to getting more involved in NRG with the potential to eventually run my own group in the DC/Bethesda area. Joining NRG was the best thing I could have done for my business.”

Eric Appelbaum, Risk Management Services of Maryland
“Mike is extremely passionate about introducing professional people to each other. If you are looking to network and get your name or business out there, you should check out what he has to offer. He also might have that contact that you really need to meet as well.”

Tori Marriner Buscher, Manor Hill Brewing

“I am so excited to be a part of NRG! I heard Mike Weiner’s passion for networking and building businesses over the phone, and that day I decided to see what the group was about. As a Business Management Consultant, I concluded that NRG has unlimited growth potential.

First, Mike’s Pinball method is genius. Each meeting, members and non-members are prompted to search throughtheir existing network to find Power Partners, Industries and Named Accounts that will bring more closed business.

Secondly, the e-NRG-y of the group is electric. Everyone feels a responsibility to refer business owners to each other. Third, Mike Weiner is so dynamic and inspirational. His goal is to help you form strategic business partnerships and expand your business clientele. How many other CEOs of networking organizations are personally invested in your success? I now have one, and my business is in the process of taking off because of Mike and NRG.”

Kayla Solinsky, Macbeth Academy/The Mordeki Group, LLC

“I have known and worked with Michael for over 5 years on several projects. In that time; he continues to exemplify the true definitions of a leader, coach, consultant and friend. He is an expert at interpersonal relations. Michael is engaging and passionate. As the founder and CEO of NRG, he knows everyone! He is a connector and a networking guru. I can attest to the power of the organization. More than 60% of my business can be directly attributed to weekly meetings and networking events organized by NRG and its affiliates. I can only recommend Michael Weiner and NRG with the highest of enthusiasm.”
Keith Ullman/1631 Digital

Mike is very professional and runs a great organization unlike any other networking group. The people that belong to NRG are very professional and great people to be around. The meetings are run smoothly and efficiently and a lot gets accomplished in one hour.
Zachary Mainstain/Price Busters Discount Furniture

“I joined NRG after my first meeting when I saw how much business was being passed back and forth. I received two referrals at my first meeting. My biggest week so far, I received 11 quality warm referrals in one meeting. Members truly help each other. 

Mike has built a huge network during his many years in running NRG. He is committed to growing all the groups and is open to creating new groups anywhere there is interest. The Pinball strategy is a competitive advantage over other groups. Unique businesses in the organization have the ability to network with the hundreds of members across the organization, which is an immediate win. I have never regretted my decision to join. And my investment was quickly recouped. Business professionals should definitely visit a meeting to see why the Pinball system works!”

Elaine O’Malley/Isagenix

“Before I hooked up with Mike Weiner of NRG (Network Referral Group), I was attending 3 other networking groups per month, but the people didn’t really seem interested in making connections. But when Mike Weiner invited me to the NRG meeting in Columbia, Maryland, I felt like I was home. Yes, I know it’s a dorky thing to say, but I soon found out that everyone in NRG genuinely wants to help each other to be more successful. 

At this first meeting, I got 15 solid leads which were far better than all the other networking groups had ever given me in several years of attending! At each NRG meeting since then, I have come away with leads! You can waste your time by attending those other networking groups or you can come home to members who will never disappoint you and will help you to succeed!"

Art Garroway/Copper by Art

“At my very first NRG meeting, I got a client. NRG creates a space where business professionals help each other to grow the businesses in a way that’s organic and powerful. I would recommend NRG to anybody who wants to grow their business.”

Umar Hameed/CEO, No Limits Selling

“Network Referral Group has been a life saver as far as referral partners goes, because during the meetings we actively brainstorm great referrals as a group. It’s kind of like a weekly mastermind group where we all try to work together on helping each other accomplish our own personal goals. Getting an outsider’s perspective is a great asset and the multiple referrals to connect with on a weekly basis make it a great group to be a part of.”

Morgan Russo/Thompson Financial Group, LLC

“I have known Michael Weiner for 20 years from our days together in Sales at IKON Office Solutions. Michael is a tremendous resource to his fellow business associates and the community. His philosophy has ALWAYS been to help others grow their business and achieve so much more. Michael is extremely well connected and is FOREVER working on ways to make everyone around him better. Michael is incredibly passionate, driven, motivated and organized. He has always been there for me 24/7 to just listen; willing to help out ,no matter the situation or circumstance.


Despite being such a driven business person, the thing that impresses me most about Michael is that he truly CARES. He cares about all aspects of a person’s life, not just the business side. He takes the time to get to know you, which is becoming increasingly rare in this day and age. Performance and trust are the ONLY two things I look for in any type of relationship, and Michael exhibits both of those traits to the maximum.


If you have not looked into his organization in the last two years, you owe it to yourself to check out NRG.”

“Mike and I worked together 20 years ago at Xtec Solutions, and he was the consummate professional who worked hard and grew his network like very few others could.


Although our sales careers have taken different directions, Mike and I have always stayed in touch.  We have both successful careers, and I believe it is because we both share a common set of worth ethics – commitment to our customers, constantly growing our network, persistence to keep going even during the most challenging of times, and helping others when you can. 


When he formed NRG, it was perfect for Mike. He has taken his core work ethics to help others in their businesses to be more successful. Mike is dedicated and enthusiastic about NRG and the benefits it brings to the members. I fully recommend Mike and NRG to anyone looking for a different way to build your business or get more sales.”

“Meeting with Mike Weiner and becoming a part of NRG has been more than a WIN all around. The contacts I have met since joining have been beneficial in both my daily life and in my business practice overall. I have had a chance to meet so many people from all types of businesses from Real Estate to Human Resources to the health professions. The possibilities are endless with an organization like NRG. To promote this concept nationwide would propel other business owners like myself to want to partner and share business networking in a concise, concrete via comprehensive platform.”

“I started with NRG about 5 years back ,and it truly lives up to its namesake NRG (Energy). NRG breathed new life into my business. I still have kept the relationships that I built many years back. I have been to many other networking events and groups, but the one thing that really stands out to me about NRG is that I know I will get great referrals every time we meet. It is a perfect place to build your business and take it to the next level. Thank you, Mike Weiner for being a great leader in this industry!”

Phillip Seaman/LegalShield

“I highly recommend NRG for individuals who understand and appreciate the strength of relationship marketing and client development, with a genuine interest in establishing a network of trusted colleagues. I especially enjoy the informal, yet structured format of weekly meetings, which provide a way to contribute to others’ marketing efforts as well as gather ideas and contacts. It’s a welcome change to other networking group formats, often tending to be more structured and requiring a significant amount of preparation and commitment.

Network Referral Group (NRG) offers a great venue to meet professionals interested in working as partners to generate business, and I’ve had the opportunity to develop professional alliances and friendships with several individuals in the Columbia 2 group. I value being able to provide solid referrals to clients for services outside of my profession. Building a network of referring partners has been a real bonus to being a part of the group. Thanks again for extending the initial invitation!”

“Having spent many years in sales and business development, I realized that one thing is for certain. You must build relationships and trust with other sales business owners to have a successful career! NRG can give that to you. You will meet fabulous and dynamic people! You will get connected with a warm introduction from a referral partner. Having known Mike for many years, he and his organization can make the difference for your bottom line and growth!”

Gail Hires/Miller and Smith

“I have been consistently impressed with Mike Weiner, CEO and founder of Network Referral Group Inc (NRG) for the last 16 years, from the day I saw him on LinkedIn and decided to connect; to the day I met him with the Towson, Maryland NRG meeting; and today when he followed up about my experience with my NRG home group in Hunt Valley, Maryland. I have attended a number of networking groups throughout my 30 years of providing financial services, and when I met Mike and attended that first meeting, I knew I had stumbled onto something exceptional. I had just started a new position this summer and was looking to spread the word about my new offerings. Mike really delivered, and his members have been elevating me and my business ever since. 

The people Mike attracts are clearly the people you want helping you to advance your business, collaborating on business ideas, as well as providing the sources of business you need. The NRG members are inspired, driven people who will create the synergy that will accelerate your business. His meetings are on a consistent level of being productive, enjoyable and precise. NRG meetings are always helpful in some tangible way by providing important and useful information, learning new angles to pursue business and of course, providing high quality sources of prospects. You should join today!”
