As people build their business, there is lots of excitement but also hurdles. Suddenly you encounter a wall. You cannot go around the wall. You jump but cannot get over it by yourself. Then several people on top of the wall extend their hands to help you. With their help, you get over the wall.
TAB provides monthly meetings to business owners from non-competitive industries. They discuss the challenges and opportunities they are facing. Through the collective experiences of the members, they help each other succeed.
I also provide one-on-one coaching to TAB members. I have walked in the CEO’s shoes, having successfully run small businesses. My strengths are in strategy and analytics. I also bring many connections, which I use to help my clients. One TAB member who has been with me for the last 8 years has seen their business grow from $300,000 to $6,000,000.
Another company I helped was in financial distress due to the business owner’s death. I modified the business strategy and restructured it financially. The business grew and was successfully sold. The widow is now enjoying a happy retirement.
