Do you want more from your business?

Have you ever felt like you didn’t have anyone to speak to confidentially who can help you take advantage of a business opportunity or overcome a challenge?

There are things that, as a business owner, you can’t or don’t want to speak to your employees, partner, family or competitors about. You just want unbiased advice (in other words you don’t want to just google it), you don’t want to pay for an expensive consultant, and you want real world experience. Then you need a peer-board of like-minded, non-competing business owners.


Who is holding you accountable?

As business owners, we don’t need to answer anyone (well, OK, to our customers some what). That’s how it is and that’s how we like it. BUT, you need someone to push you to make those business decisions or complete those strategic tasks you have been pushing off.

Ever felt like you were going through the motions without the profit and life balance you deserve as a business owner?

It’s normal for a successful business owner to think this way. That’s why you need to work with a successful business coach and have support from a peer-board of other successful business owners.

The Alternative Board is a membership organization of business owners and CEOs who meet monthly in confidential board meetings to assist each other in transforming their businesses.

TAB helps business owners achieve their dreams through advisory boards and business coaching.

We’ve been doing it for more than 25 years, and have over 7,000 members who have taken their businesses to the next level.


Peer Advisory Boards

Each TAB advisory board is comprised of a small number of local business owners who run non-competing businesses. As a TAB Certified Facilitator Coach, Nick will facilitate each monthly board meeting. Each month, you and your board members in the Orange County area meet to share their business expertise, solve business challenges, help each other seize new opportunities and create actionable strategic plans.



Each month, Nick will meet with you individually in a one-on-one coaching session. You will discuss how business is progressing by comparing actual versus projected results. Together we will develop the tactics needed to achieve your projected results. These executive business coaching sessions utilize a variety of tools.

What Makes The Alternative Board Work? 

Our unique system of peer board meetings means you learn from the practical 

teachings of other business owners. The combination of peer advice captured in 

TAB board meetings, private coaching sessions, and TAB’s proprietary business 

tools ensures your access to our proven methods of transforming your 

business to its next level of success.


If you are trying to solve problems, become a better leader, or simply learn how to run your company more efficiently, membership on an Alternative Board is essential. The Alternative Board's business advisory group is structured to provide effective leadership coaching and transformational advice tailored for your business.
