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
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.
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.
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.
As a trusted business advisor, you’ll no doubt get occasional business consulting tasks from your TAB Members. The scope of this opportunity can be as niche or as broad as you’d like to make it.

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.
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.
