TAB Business Owner/Franchisee

What is a TAB Business Owner?

Our franchise owners are called TAB Business Owners, or TBOs, because they are more than just “franchisees”—they are talented business owners who are like-minded in their commitment to growth, and a desire to make a meaningful difference by helping others.

TBOs are business owners in every sense, unlike owning a typical business-to-business franchise. They take advantage of  flexibility and independence, are part of a talented group of peers, whilst receiving unparalleled training and support. Rather than reinvent themselves, or look for another career, they can also use their experience and achievements. They can apply their achievements to deliver success for themselves and members..

TAB also provides a subscription model, which gives TAB Business Owners a predictable, consistent income stream each month. TAB’s marketing support, contract facilitator model, and individual territories also mean our TBOs can quickly grow their businesses. It also frees up time to earn even more from consulting or to create a more rewarding work-life balance.

A TAB Business Owner’s Week

Facilitation

Thanks to the proven TAB system, each month you will host multiple 4 hour board meetings (virtually or face to face) made up of business owners in your local community. You will be key to ensuring each TAB Board Member gets the most value from each TAB Board meeting by helping find ideas and strategies and more importantly identifying actions to help improve the business and the business owner.

Coaching

Each of your TAB Board Members will meet with you each month (virtually or face to face), where you will be their accountability partner to ensure they action the commitments made to themselves (and their board) in their business.

Networking

You’ll attend business networking events in your local community or virtually, and perhaps host some of your own, and develop relationships with many people in the business community. You will deliver topic talks on business growth at local networking events where you will ensure you deliver value first and then educate on how TAB offers a great benefit to the small to medium-sized business community.

Develop your Business

With multiple marketing and sales tools available, you will use direct dialing, social media, email strategies, and in-person or virtual networking to explain what TAB does and how it can help business owners. You’ll meet with potential strategic partners, event hosts, and prospective TAB Board Members to determine whether there’s a good fit for potential business alignment.

Success Stories

I was able to grow my TAB business to 15 TAB Members and three TAB Boards in only a few months after I launched. The most important thing I advise potential partners is to be willing to take advice from the TAB community. TAB Facilitators are business owners just like any other; they have to be open to learn and grow.

Blair Koch

CEO, TAB Denver West

I’ve seen first-hand how much business owners can benefit from some really good third-party advice. While consultants,
family members, and employees can provide a useful sounding board, only business owners can truly appreciate what other business owners are going through. Being a Master Partner has been enormously gratifying.

Ed Reid

Master Partner, TAB UK

“Running a small business can be an enormous challenge. Sometimes it’s necessary to step away from working in your business and start working on your business. TAB has given me this opportunity.”

– Rachael Atkinson, MB Automotive Fleet Specialists, QLD

“I urge all small business owners to seek support and advice from others when and where you need it and, importantly, that you act upon that advice”

Craig Hibbert, Bookworks, QLD

“For me, the main reason for becoming a TAB Member was to reinforce whether I was doing everything I could for my business to achieve its full potential for growth. This was especially important because, having transitioned from a tradesman to a business owner, I had no formal business training.”

Michael Spragg, Laser Plumbing and Electrical, QLD

“Beyond addressing all the day-to-day issues and not having someone else to help with key decision-making, I had no time to work on things that were most important to the organisation,” she says. “It felt like my house was on fire! Joining TAB helped me put out that fire”

– Maira Ribeiro, MT Solution
