Allen Fishman launched TAB twenty-five years ago. He found that his board of directors was invaluable to him throughout his career. But what about the smaller business owner? Where do they go for advice? This is why Allen created TAB.
“In 1990, I identified what seemed to me to be the greatest need of small-business owners: the need for peer advice from fellow business owners and coaching from experienced professionals who were armed with a process to achieve greater personal and business success. TAB is making a difference in the lives of thousands of business owners around the world”.
We decided to bring TAB into Chicago because we saw the same need in our careers. We observed that most business owners could 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. We have seen firsthand the tremendous impact that TAB has been able to have on the business and lives of members in Chicago. It is a privilege to work directly with private business owners and we can’t imagine doing anything else.
