It Doesn’t Have to be Lonely at the Top--Your board of advisors is waiting to meet you at a local peer group meeting.
By: Mark A. Newman

As a business owner, it is not unusual for you to feel somewhat isolated. After all, you are the top dog in your own company. However, there are times when it would be helpful to have other top dogs to throw bones to, so to speak. In other words, no matter how much of an expert in your industry you are, it's always helpful to discuss challenges with your contemporaries.

But where do you turn when you are in a class by yourself?

The answer may lie in a professional peer group consisting of fellow business people from a variety of (non-competitive) industries who are facing similar problems and issues as you. Unlike traditional networking groups, many peer groups cater exclusively to top C-level business leaders and owners who are looking to solve problems in a more informal environment than an oak-paneled boardroom.

Ask me about the new business peer advisory group I'm now forming.
