Welcome to the Business Owners Success Club


It takes a Community to Grow a Business.  Your local community and the community of other business owners just like you: local and around the world.

You are awesome at what you do. That’s why you started your business and why you are  making a go of it.


⇒You feel like you could be doing better

⇒You feel the big changes happening in the world and you want to know what you could and should be doing about it.

⇒You have lots of ideas of things to implement, but… you’d love to discuss it with someone to figure out the best ways to do it for your particular business, you can’t afford too many failures and you’d love to hear experiences of other businesses just like yours.

⇒You’d love to talk to other owners in the same types of business, but you find that really hard to do in your own community.

⇒You’ve accomplished so much, but you can see so much more you could do and you aren’t sure what is holding you back.

⇒Sometimes it feels like you are talking another language to the people around you because they don’t seem to hear what you are saying.

Me too! That’s why I started the Business Owners Success Club. This blog, concept and various incarnations have been around since 2004. This is the most recent and most ambitious iteration yet. Yikes!


Inside the Business Owners Success Club we are building a community of small and micro business owners.  People like you who are optimistic, generous, caring and ambitious.


There are 4 Essential Components of Your Effortless Business; but you, the owner, are the Fifth Element – the most important element.

The Business Owners Success Club is for you.

In order for you to make your business the best it can be, you need to be in the best shape you can be.  You need to be strong, energized, creative, fearless, and motivated.  That doesn’t happen by itself, we need help.

We need to be supported, encouraged, hugged or booted depending upon what we need most.  We are the bunch who can do that!  We’re all business owners here.  We are all having the same experiences and we understand you.

There are no silver bullets.  Jim Collins talks about getting a massive flywheel to turn.  You push and push and push.  Finally, there’s some movement and you keep pushing.  At some point “the momentum of the thing kicks in your favor, hurling the flywheel forward, turn after turn…whoosh!…it’s own heavy weight working for you. ”  If someone were to ask you what was the one big push that caused this thing to go so fast, you’d recognize it as a nonsensical question.  It wasn’t one thing, it was consistent effort.

Let’s work together to get all our flywheels spinning.


We realize the power of groups and want to take advantage of the collective wisdom, varied best practices and accountability they offer.

We are building a membership space and will open it soon. The objective is to bring us together in a way that we all get what we need.

We are going to do a couple of things differently than most membership sites:

  1. This is a one year experiment. By the end of the year we’ll know what we want to do next. I/we don’t know what that is yet and we will do it together. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up (I’m 54) and I love trying new things. Come along and play.
  2. The membership fee will be a one time payment of $200 whether you join in the first month or the last. So join early.
  3. The focus is on connection, discussion and exploration together. Not information. Information is easy; it’s a given. It will be there when needed, but it is not front and centre and it is not where we are putting our energy.
  4. There will be ‘The Program’ as in get with ‘The Program’. This will be a guided program to help you improve your business a little bit all the time. Each month we will focus on one aspect of business at a time and we’ll do it together.
  5. The platform we are using allows you to form your own groups, such as Rural Specialty Retail or Startup Lawyers. I hope this is where you will get the most value. We each have answers, we just don’t have all the answers. Together we do have all the answers.
  6. We will continually experiment and listen to find the best ways to deliver what you need. I don’t want to rely too much (or at all) on the talking head paradigm. We will have plenty of live chat time and posting forum discussions. Tell us what you need!

If you want to be in for the beta launch as we co-create this space, please email for an invitation.
