TAB Seattle Eastside


Rich Goudy


TAB Seattle Eastside

As owner of TAB Seattle Eastside, Rich implements an essential combination of peer advisory boards, one-on-one coaching, and proprietary tools to bring business owners increased support, focus, and accountability, enabling them to reach higher levels of professional and personal fulfillment.

Rich brings to TAB more than 30 years of experience and leadership in sales, strategic planning, team building, and employee mentoring. Throughout his career, he has held various senior level executive positions with privately owned organizations and has viewed up close the numerous challenges business owners face every day. His practical nature, along with his skills as a communicator, coach, and critical thinker are valuable assets in assisting owners to improve their businesses in ways that truly impact their lives.

Rich was drawn to TAB because he is passionate about helping other professionals in his community grow and succeed. He has learned by working closely with business owners that even successful owners can become overwhelmed or frustrated running their companies, often leading to perpetual feelings of fatigue, stress, or isolation. Seeing this, he recognized that business owners would benefit from an organized way to routinely tap into each other’s expertise and experience for added support. It wasn’t until Rich discovered TAB that he realized how he could provide this vital service to business owners in need.

Rich is a longtime Eastside resident and lives in Woodinville with his wife. He enjoys spending time with his family, following sports, traveling, and seeking out exceptional food and wine.

Member Success

As a TAB member, through the regular coaching sessions and monthly Board meetings, I gain invaluable mentor and peer support. The TAB ethos and coaching approach has helped me to plan personal and business goals and set direction. This is supported by the wealth of knowledge, skills, experience and support that is shared by the board who provide Impartial, informed and considered guidance and advice on all types of business issues, that enable me to gain fresh perspectives, identify blind spots and fill my skill gaps. Over the last twelve months TAB has effectively become my company’s non-executive board and its members my trusted colleagues.

There is no silver bullet to becoming successful, you just have to stay focused on your goals. TAB has helped my business grow significantly by encouraging me to take a step back and identify the basics I need.

TAB helped me to focus on the things that have made my business scalable. I was tempted to divert my attention to another endeavor, but TAB helped me determine that was not prudent. The economy, and specifically new building starts, have helped, but the degree of capitalization would not have been possible were it not for TAB. I compare my situation with another franchise owner who was in my shoes several years ago and I am way ahead, in fact we just bought him out. My revenues have doubled, and my capacity has increased four times from what it was three years ago. I have time to be with my girls, work on my hobbies and enjoy life.

We have an excellent group of professional business owners. I learn something from them each month. Hearing and seeing what they are doing in their business is motivational for me. And they are not "yes" people. They tell me when I should be doing something differently.

My TAB coach has gotten me on track and kept me on track since 2005 toward the goals I’d originally stated," says Perlmeter. "I’m totally confident that we’ll continue to realize the vision that I have for the company in our second decade.

16 yrs. in business. Company was run like mom and pop shop for 14 years. Since joining TAB we have been able to identify our niche in the market and now the company is being run like a real company with focus and clarity as to where we are going and an actual plan on how we’re going to get there. Our company is poised to grow in size and wealth beyond my expectations and with TAB I will be able to sleep at night in the process.
