Member Success

Since joining TAB, we have had some of our most successful years in recent memory..  It has provided me a forum where I can share both my successes and failures with my fellow business owners..  Their feedback has been essential in my own decision making.  Jim has provided direction, advice & accountability!  I come from an Engineering background, so Jim's background in Corporate finance has been invaluable.  Having my Strategic Plan, SWOT, etc at my fingertips keeps me focused on both my short term & long term goals.  Joining TAB is one of the best business decisions I have made.

Since joining TAB, I have learned how to look at my business from a CEO’s perspective.  Prior to TAB, I ran my business on instinct, without really looking at data and without having a plan in place for the future.  Jim has opened a field of vision and a perspective that I did not have.  He taught me how to Diagnose my business to find out what Category is important and to find out how we are doing in each Category.  He facilitated in helping us have a vision to know where we want to go.  With his expertise, we were able to identify our SWOT, our Values, our Mission, our employees' Accountability and make a Strategic Plan.  The TAB Board has provided me with a forum where I can share both my successes and failures with my fellow business owners.  Joining TAB and having Jim as the facilitator is one of the best business decisions I have made.

I have found my investment in TAB to be one of the best things I have done. One of the benefits of joining TAB has been the Peer Board Member’s help in designing a sales program that works. It works because I took the time to help our sales people become better salespeople, not merely pressure them to do more of the same. By being around people who think differently who are going to ask me each meeting how I did, compels me to make the improvements that enable me to enjoy life, and boy, do I enjoy life. I recommend this amazing program without question.
