The Alternative Board, Tennessee Valley has been important in helping me grow my business leadership skills and grow my company faster.

Before joining TAB, Tennessee Valley, I had become engulfed by the daily tasks of owning and running a small business. I was spending too much time running the business and not enough time growing it. I am greatly impressed with Jim’s ability to understand my business and the daily challenges it presents. His vast knowledge and the business experiences shared by Board members during our meetings has helped me transition from working IN my business to working ON my business. Thanks to Jim’s coaching and the guidance and support of my TAB Board members, my business continues to grow and I have more time for family and the hobbies I enjoy.
