Small Business Group

Vistage Small Business

Running a small business, you face complex issues every day. Your resources are stretched, competition is fierce and new challenges persist.

The Vistage Small Business Program gives you a forum to rise above the urgent and focus on what's most critical: the tough, strategic decisions that will drive your business forward.

Vistage member 3

The challenges small business leaders face are anything but small.

Designed for the challenges of small business owners.

Challenge

Solution

You currently make all decisions on your own and worry you may be missing something.

Get unbiased, confidential advice from a group of your peers who have faced similar challenges.

You occupy so many roles in the company that you’re in danger of burnout.

Learn from seasoned executives how to create work-life balance by putting leadership and processes in place for seamless operations.

You're mired in day-to-day business operations and haven’t been able to stay ahead of trends.

Connect directly with experts for personalized advice to help you focus on the strategic decisions that will lead to long-term growth.

You haven’t been able to secure necessary resources to fuel growth.

Gain fresh perspectives and insights from other entrepreneurs on how they’ve successfully financed their companies’ growth.

How Vistage Works

Confidential peer advisory boards

  • Work on your most pressing issues with an exclusive group of 12-16 chief executives from non-competing industries.

Aside from deciding to start a new company, joining Vistage is the single best business decision I have ever made — hands down. As a small, high growth company, I needed a board of advisors with more business experience than I had. My Vistage group is ideal in that capacity."

10 Reasons Not To Join Vistage

10 REASONS
NOT TO JOIN VISTAGE

(However, membership will transform your life!)

Some high potential candidates raise obstacles rather than apply for VISTAGE membership. We've cataloged ten top reasons.

Reason 1

"I can't make the time."
You think your time is precious?
We all have 168 hours a week. The real question here is how you choose to spend your time. Members are routinely cited as some of the most productive people on the planet. They're conscious of where they spend their time.

Within 45-60 days, VISTAGE ""nets" time. You'll spend less time doing other people's work & devote more time to the most important relationships in your life.

Reason 2

"I need to wait until I get over the hump."
There are always more humps or speed bumps in life, aren't there? Humping a week ago, 6 weeks ago, 6 months ago? YES, of course!

VISTAGE members tell us they wished they joined 12-18 months earlier.

Reason 3

"I'm too busy IN my business."
VISTAGE members tell us that spending time "ON" their business (rather than "IN" their business) with a group of peers makes them feel more effective LEADERS.

VISTAGE members tell us that within a few months, they're accomplishing more in less time.

Reason 4

"I can't afford VISTAGE."
What is your budget for your own personal development? Surely not zero. If you're sincerely interested in growing personally & professionally, VISTAGE might be your best alternative.

The best ROI for your company & your career is in yourself. Spend it wisely.

Reason 5

"You don't understand. We have no cash. We're on the verge of bankruptcy."
Oh boy, I'm sorry! Frankly we have no compelling rebuttal for that one. If it would be helpful, some of our VISTAGE Chairs excel at turnarounds. Maybe a brief chat?

VISTAGE members need to have the financial wherewithal to fund productive change.

Reason 6

"I already participate in a peer group."
Is your present peer group highly functioning? Does it work for you? Does your group have a professional trained facilitator?

VISTAGE Chairs receive hundreds of hours of leadership training each year. Leadership can be learned; you're not born with it.

Reason 7

"I already have an executive coach."
Wonderful! All good CEOs aspiring to be GREAT CEOs have a Coach. Can I suggest "kicking it up a notch" by having your peers additionally hold you accountable? Walk along side others?

Peer accountability & coloration simply AMPLIFIES the leadership experience.

Reason 8

"I have a Board."
Yep, most of our members do also. Additionally, we have friends and business associates, your spouse or significant & buddies. No shortage of advice is there? And typically, their advice has an agenda (not yours.)

Our highest performing members listen hard at what they hear at a VISTAGE meeting.

Reason 9

"I can't trust other people with my secrets."
Are you a lone ranger? Living a lonely life? Really? Human beings weren't designed to be islands to themselves.

VISTAGE members tells us that iron sharpens iron. You'll learn fundamental lessons from every member in the group.

Reason 10

"I can't possibly learn from other people."
That again? For sure, empirically we know that you'll need to trust yourself before you can trust others.

You'll leave here knowing what stories are yours to tell and what stories are not.

"HT" to fellow VISTAGE Chair Artie Isaac (Columbus, OH) for the inspiration.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email within 7 business days


We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

CAN SPAM Act

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

We collect your email address in order to:

  • Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions

My non-profit is stuck

Do you lead a not-for-profit (NFP) organization in the Triangle?

Backstory: 7 years ago, I began forming like-minded CEO peer groups in the Triangle. Among the 50+ members, & hundreds of thousands employees across the first groups, several not-for- profit CEOs enjoyed--- and substantially contributed to---our group learning experience & influence.

Yet you told us that you were different. You said, "We're mission driven, building community assets, rather than owner equity. We need leadership development. We're stewards, not owners & we serve at the pleasure of a Board."

Cumulatively, in 2017, the top 50 Triangle based public charitable orgs exceeded $1.5B in revenue

Yet you told us that you were different. You said, "We're mission driven, building community assets, rather than owner equity. We need leadership development. We're stewards, not owners & we serve at the pleasure of a Board."
