TAB Utah Valley

Mark Seastrand

Owner - TAB Utah Valley

Utah Valley, Orem, Utah

I am an executive that loves small to medium businesses. “There is an element of excitement about making all the pieces fit and work together to achieve success.” I am an MBA graduate from BYU with early career experience in the semi-conductor, polycrystalline diamond, and electronic manufacturing industries. I credit my early experience as the foundation to my startup success with Precision Assembly, Creating Keepsakes Magazine, and my work with Inspire Graphics and Big Picture Classes.  I enjoyed serving on the Orem City Council for 14 years and have been the Director of the Entrepreneurship Institute at UVU where I helped students create their own success stories.

Business owners often start their business with a vision of what their business will allow them to achieve in their personal lives. The day-to-day realities of running their business take over and they lose track of how their business should be aligned with achieving their personal vision of success.
If you are a business owner, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you ready to take your business to an entirely new level?
- Who’s in control – you or your business?
- How are you at balancing your business and personal lives?
- Do you need help seeing the opportunities available to you?
- Do you feel like you’re fighting fires all alone?
- Where do you turn to for the truth about your business?

I now own and operate The Alternative Board® (TAB) in Utah Valley. TAB helps forward-thinking business owners increase profitability and improve their lives by leveraging local business advisory boards, private business coaching, and proprietary strategic services.
If you’d like to learn more about our invitation-only membership model and how it may be able to help you with your business, let’s connect and explore if TAB might be a fit for you.

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.

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.

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.
