Here's where we break down your business
 THE BOARD

We start at the foundation of your business and if you don't have one we'll build your strategic plan on one piece of paper that will include: 

  •   Personal Vision
  •  Business Vision 
  •  Lessons Learned
  •  Critical Success Factors
  •  Goals 
  •  Strategies
  •  Tactics
  •  Your Champagne Moment 
Each month, Nick will meet with you individually in a one-on-one coaching session. You will discuss how business is progressing by comparing actual versus projected results. 

Together you will develop the tactics needed to achieve your projected results. These executive business coaching sessions utilize a variety of proprietary tools.
Each advisory board is comprised of a small number of local business owners who run non-competing businesses. 

Each month, you and your board members in the Henderson area meet to share their business expertise, solve business challenges, help each other seize new opportunities and create actionable strategic plans. 
With Nick, you're never alone.

Profit has increased in this time by a staggering amount - of course, this wasn’t down to Nick and the board alone, but the insight, perspective and accountability allowed me to take RIBUS to where I want it to be.”
