Estrada Strategies greg batten

Greg Batten, Coach to CEOs in the Inland Empire

Many of the small businesses owners we speak to express this concern. The Corporate CEO has a board of directors, an executive leadership team, consultants, and managers to help them with strategies and business development. They also have teams and departments to execute key growth initiatives.

The small business owner does not have the time or resources to build a board of directors.

The CEO Club provides the kind of entrepreneurial environment that helps the small business owner to think, plan, and execute like a corporate CEO.
