The CEO Focus program has the ability to take your business knowledge and leverage it into a meaningful coaching career. If you are interested in earning an excellent income while working a very flexible schedule, read on. CEO Focus franchisees help business owners take their business to the next level. Many business owners struggle balancing the day to day needs of the business with the strategic growth of the business. This is where you come into the picture.
As a CEO Focus franchisee, you will assist businesses by acting as a trusted business advisor as well as acting as the facilitator of a group of their local CEO peers. By gaining access to a network of peers, gaining business and industry best practices, as well as an increasing the focus on the important aspects of their business, a CEO Focus member can accomplish amazing results.
Good candidates possess a strong general business background. Previous company ownership is a plus. We act as "general contractors" for our members, referring them to expertise they need. Therefore, you need not be an expert in all areas of business, but you should be comfortable in all areas. You may be working with 40-50 different clients in a given month, so you should enjoy variety. Most importantly, you should enjoy helping strong business men and women become even better businesspeople.
The Business Model
- Our CEO peer group model brings diverse groups of small business owners into a peer consulting setting
- CEO Focus believes that the failures of CEOs stems from lack of action/implementation rather than from lack of knowledge. Therefore, our program focuses on best practices, structured issue discussion, shared knowledge bases, and accountability
- Facilitators run the monthly four-hour group meeting as well as meet monthly with each client for a 1-to-1
- Our program differs from competitors because we are truly in the membership business. Our CEO groups are not a Trojan horse for other consulting services. Facilitators are paid well for each group member, therefore, there is not the financial necessity of selling additional services
