There are only two paths for small business owners still in the 6-figure range that want knowledge, mentorship, and a level-up community for their business growth:
1. Large group programs (50 – 400 members or more per group) 2. Large priced programs ($16,000 – $55,000 or more per year)
When your knowledge and experience outgrows the group program and your budget does not yet support a mid-five-figure mentor there is no where to go. Other advisory boards, business experts, and mastermind groups focus either on new business or on the million dollar plus with 10 or more employees business. No one is looking after the 43% of the Canadian businesses that are between $100,000 and $999,999.
I know what it takes to run a service-based business and I know how lonely small business feels when you are still small. I also know that when business owners do work with advisory boards they are more likely to be able to build a bigger, sustainable business. There is no need to have to know everything yourself as your advisory board of experts and other business owners with their own experience and expertise help fill out gaps in your own development.
I wanted this for my business and I’ve done everything to find this perfect combination of strategic development and business mentors, in a high-level community, including paying tens-of-thousands of dollars. I wanted it easier for everyone to have the expert support they needed without the costs so I developed this program based on some of the most successful programs that work with 8-figure businesses. I want to see the statistics for small business change and have more of them reach their 10 year, 20 year, 50 year, or multi-generational anniversaries. If, like me, growth with sustainability is your goal then this is your advisory board.
