Small Business Owners Like You

Received the structure and support they need to set and hit their goals

“Since I started my first SLAPyear,
I have noticed a huge difference
in how organized my thoughts
are with regards to my business,
especially because the program
provides a visual representation
of my month to month tasks and
goals. SLAP has truly helped me
plan ahead and think big, which
has been integral to
my recent success!”

“Being a part of SLAP has helped
me to continue to strive to
expand my business. The
experience and encouragement
from the staff have really helped
me to grow my confidence and
not give up during hard times in
business. Running a business has
its challenges, doing it alone is
very hard, but having a team
makes a tremendous
difference to stay on track.”

“I now understand better why I
need to get focused and where
my focus should go. I also
learned how to continually
reevaluate my business
practices to make them more
streamlined and effective in
generating revenue. I would
highly recommend SLAP to any
small businesses that need
