Onward & Upward
Virtual Networking

The National Association of Local Businesses (NAOLB) is dedicated to supporting and assisting business owners to survive and THRIVE in their local markets. One of the many ways we do this, is through connecting local business owners, managers, and sales reps to learn about each other’s businesses and refer each other to interested consumers – and maybe do business with each other. Many times, members find new friendships, business relationships and innovative ideas that benefit everyone involved.

Our meetings are “virtual”, allowing local businesses to be more efficient, saving time and expanding everyone’s connections, locally and nationally. In addition, as the network grows, “national” service and product providers can find new opportunities, build relationships and  expand their markets through virtual networking.

Each Facebook Group will have a facilitator, if interested, please feel free to apply on the site. Facilitators manage the group, organize the online (or in-person) meetings and shares in any advertising revenues generated by the group, to compensate them for the time and effort they put forth making the networking possible for their local peers and business connections.

We are glad you joined us, and look forward to “networking” with you and getting better acquainted.

With over 100 (and growing) Local Networking Facebook Groups, we should have a location near you. Our “virtual” format provides easy access to meet and connect with businesses in more remote areas, or outside your “normal marketing reach”. Feel free to “join” as many groups as you desire. Your membership will be confirmed and we look forward to meeting you soon!

    About Us

    Onward & Upward Virtual Networking is a division of the National Association of Local Businesses (www.NAOLB.com), which provides access to over 100 Top Quality, highly vetted products and services at discounted pricing, normally reserved for much larger companies. Through our collective buying power and national presence, we get great products at affordable pricing, that most local business owners didn’t know were available to stand alone businesses, making them more Profitable, Productive and Promoted to more local consumers.

    While NAOLB was Founded in 2012 (originally MaxExposure Social Media), by Joe Grushkin, Onward & Upward Virtual Networking was formed in 2020 with the goal to create a national network of “local networking groups” to provide business owners a way connect locally, and have unprecedented access to a national network of like-minded entrepreneurs to promote their products and services.
