How It Works
It seems backward, that the places and people who could use the business help and education the most, seem to be the ones that have to spend the most money and time, just to access the same training.
So, we are bringing the training to you – our fellow small town business owners. You are vital to your communities and we want to you to thrive.
Our Thrive Program starts with a thorough business evaluation to help you identify the strongest and the weakest points in your business.
The Thrive Cycle’s, easy-to-follow, learn-from-anywhere, education system starts in your weakest area. After you master that area you work your way through the rest of the cycle.
We are creating a community of small town business owners: with resources ranging from Facebook ad experts and one-on-one coaching to a Facebook brainstorming group.
