Allen Fishman launched TAB over 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.

As Alan says, “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.”

Nick Leighton brought TAB to Southern California because he saw the same need in local communities. Having sat on peer-boards locally and internationally for 12-years, Nick knew that a peer board led to his success and to the success of others through the inspiration, motivation, accountability and real time to think strategically on a regular basis.

Nick said, “I 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. I have seen first hand the tremendous impact that TAB has been able to have on the business and lives of members in Central Orange. It is a privilege to work directly with private business owners and I get great pleasure becoming personally involved in the local community.  Seeing small and mid sized business grow, reach business objectives, which in turn allow business owners to reach their personal vision is the biggest high.”

Why is Nick Leighton unique in the local community?  Quite simply, it’s all about the business owner.  If, as a business owner, you want to work with a professional that understands and can make a difference in your business then you need to speak with Nick. He will not only take your business to the next level, but he will help you achieve your personal goals.
