A new type of business affinity group has just launched. “Small Business CEO” promises to save small business owners a ton of time and money on startup costs, learning curve, and ongoing marketing and operating expenses.
The organization features a continuously updated “virtual classroom” of multi-media lessons from business experts, a proprietary members only social network, customized to streamline referrals and collaboration opportunities with other members, and marketing tools and member discounts on products and services small business owners use most.
In addition to the complete multi-media library of lessons on business marketing and entrepreneurship, the virtual classroom features a coaching forum where members get questions answered by experts on those topics. Everything from coming up with your creative idea to selecting the right business entity, to business tax issues and growth strategies is covered. The library is also the source for checklists, forms, and simple legal documents to help small business owners be organized and compliant.
Small Business CEO, the creation of retired Maryland business lawyer, Glenn K. Garnes, positions members for explosive growth through a simple, logically organized, course of instruction that takes the guesswork out of what to do first and what to do next. Members access these resources for a small annual membership fee, currently at the introductory rate of just $97.00. That rate is expected to increase shortly, but members who join at that rate are guaranteed renewal will never cost them more as long as they maintain membership with the organization.
The organization facilitates growth through collaboration, education and communication with other members. “Imagine a nationwide organization of small business owners, raising their business I.Q.’s through continuing education, then working in harmony with each other to build influence, resources and knowledge, for the purpose of advancing each other’s businesses”. “That’s Small Business CEO”, commented Garnes.
“The business training I’ve received from Small Business CEO has been invaluable”, says David Wren. “I picked up 9 new clients in under 60 days by implementing the marketing plan lesson into my daily routine”, he explained. Wren, who operates Computer MD, a computer service and maintenance company, participated in a beta launch of Small Business CEO.
Garnes considers the organization’s focus on relationships and collaboration to be key. “Relationship building is an art you don’t learn in business school, or just by showing up to networking events,” says Garnes. “Teaching our members how to build influence within a community, then providing them with convenient tools and the right people to do it with fills an important gap in a business owner’s resources today,” Garnes continued.
“I joined Small Business CEO, because it’s a great opportunity to meet business professionals who take their businesses seriously and who value relationships with other dedicated business owners”, said Al Granger, who operates NetworkingAdvocate.com, an online business events calendar.
Small Business CEO is currently launching around the country through a network of “community builders”, who are company ambassadors committed to helping local members achieve success through their Small Business CEO membership.
