Do you want to be your own boss? Have more independence and flexibility? Earn what you're really worth? Make a difference in the community? With today's corporate environment, chances are you've already thought about being your own boss and owning your own business.

If you are like most current employees (and those in transition), you've thought about this multiple times.

Well, as a franchise business owner with The Alternative Board (TAB), you will have the opportunity to be "in business for yourself, but not by yourself."

Since 1990, TAB has helped over 20,000 business owners achieve their personal and professional goals through monthly business advisory boards and coaching. We are looking for business professionals who are leaders in their areas of expertise. You could be a consultant, coach, business owner or senior business professional – looking to combine your passion for business and helping others succeed.

What does typical month look like for a TAB Facilitator / Coach?

Facilitating: Following the proven TAB system, each month you will host multiple 4-hour board meetings made up of business owners in your local community. You will be instrumental in making sure each TAB Board Member gets maximum value from each board meeting by helping draw out actionable ideas and strategies to help improve the business and the business owner.

Coaching: Each of your board members will meet with you each month where you will be their accountability partner to make sure what they promised to themselves (and their board) is actually implemented in their business.

Sales: You will meet with all the “movers and shakers” in the business community and explain what it is TAB does and how it can help business owners. You will meet with potential strategic alliance partners, event hosts and prospective board members face to face to determine whether there is a good fit or potential partnership. You will use multiple weapons in your sales arsenal including direct dialing, email outreach or simply stopping by and introducing yourself and TAB.

Business networking and events: You will attend business networking events, and even host a few of your own. You enjoy being out in your local community and knowing a lot of people in the business community. You will be asked to deliver topic talks on business growth by local networking events where you will firstly provide value, and explain why TAB offers a great benefit to the small to medium sized business community.

Marketing: You will be using a wide array of marketing tactics to grow your business including direct marketing, social media, event marketing to name a few. You will use all these tactics (following TABs proven systems) so that you will cement in the minds of the business community that you are both a great resource for entrepreneurs wanting to seriously grow their businesses.

Consulting: Because you will be a trusted business advisor, you will get from time to time business consulting assignments from your members. The scope of this opportunity can be as niche or broad as you would like to make it.

Are you TAB ready?

This is a franchise opportunity, so we are really looking for a business partner, someone who will represent the TAB brand in the right way. You will be the type of person who exhibits these skills and attributes:
  • Great communicator. You be someone who people naturally like to converse with and open themselves up to. You understand that being a great communicator is not just about what you say, but how well you listen.
  • Business leadership. You are a growth expert in business, someone who has the ability to help a business grow through its people, its systems and its innovation. You will have an area of expertise (marketing, sales, finance, operations) but will also be passionate about learning all areas of business and people development.
  • Can-do attitude. When you join TAB, you are not buying yourself a job. You are buying (in part) the formula to help all willing business owners succeed. TAB is looking for people who are prepared to do whatever it takes to spread the TAB message in your local community. This means getting out into your business community and meeting a lot of people and sharing our great story.
  • Positive-minded. TAB is an organization of business leaders who are all striving to help their local business communities. We are looking for people who have a glass half full mentality who will represent what we do and our culture well.
  • Hardworking and hungry. You know that this is your business and will be willing to work hard in order to build it to the level you need it to be. You consider yourself competitive, wanting to blaze new trails and break company records

The Alternative Board Australia Testimonials
The thing that appealed to me about TAB was the ability to use the skills that I have learned in my corporate life and transfer that over into working with business owners and really making a difference in their business and their lives I like to work on a lot of different things at once. You get to work with a lot of businesses, you don’t have to focus on one thing. I can work on multiple businesses, making a difference in the lives of multiple people so you never get bored.
Doug Downer
The support that you get from the other TBOs, from Claire, from the global team has made the biggest difference and I believe is the key reason why my business is successful. In 2014 I joined TAB as a member so I already knew the value of TAB and was a believer in TAB so when the opportunity came up to become a TBO and buy in, I went for it. I am more optimistic than ever, I am more excited about the future than ever, I’m more excited about what I can do with TAB and with my members and what I can achieve in life.
Daniel Wong
My life has changed since becoming a TBO in that I am more focused. I make decisions based on my own personal vision and where I am trying to get to. Its really helped me determine what is important, what’s taking me towards where I want to go in terms of achieving my personal vision and business vision and letting go of the things that aren’t taking me there.
