The Alternative Board
WHO ARE WE?
The Alternative Board is an exclusive, membership-based organization that helps business leaders achieve more – more profitability, productivity, and personal fulfillment.
As TAB-Certified Facilitator/Coaches, franchise owners lead monthly peer advisory board meetings and provide business coaching and consulting to individual members and their companies.
Competitive Advantage: The biggest advantages to owning a TAB business versus a traditional consulting business are:
• Income predictability: Under TAB’s subscription model, members pay monthly membership dues which provide a consistent cash flow that franchisees can count on from month to month.
• Additional income: Revenue beyond membership dues from consulting provided to TAB members and others met through the TAB opportunity.
• Transferability of board membership: Equity in the TAB business is built because the members find the value in the boards and the process, not in an individual. We have a strong history of successful re-sales.
• International presence
