This group has been such an encouraging, supportive, and welcoming place that I feel like I don’t need to look anywhere else for resources. I can unsubscribe from all the other marketing, branding, business strategy people I follow and just tap into the members of SBOC. I feel more focused, and I seem to have more capacity to build my business now that I am not so distracted.

Life's too short to build someone else's dream.

You’ve just discovered the small business support system you’ve always needed. The Small Business Owners Community is a group that understands your journey. Inside this membership, you’ll meet people who have walked a similar path, faced similar challenges, and are ready to stand beside you and help you reach your goals.

Transforming Small Business Ownership Together

Built by Small Business Owners, for Small Business Owners

We’ve created a place that gives you what you need to keep growing. There are no networking scammers, referral meeting sharks, or expensive coaching programs that promise success without delivering. With the Small Business Owners Community, you’ll experience the things you’re missing: Feedback from experienced entrepreneurs and help for your most important decisions.

Don’t Grow it Alone®

Business Ownership can Feel Lonely. We’re Your Community and Support System.

You’ve been there. Talking about the struggles you’re facing in your business to someone who just doesn’t understand. The truth is, no one will love and understand your business the way YOU do. No one will understand the time, energy, blood, sweat, and tears you pour into the success of your business - except other business owners who are taking the same journey you are, facing similar challenges, and likely feeling that same isolation you’ve felt. The Small Business Owners Community brings together a diverse group of individuals with different backgrounds, experiences, and expertise.

After your 2 week free trial, you will be charged $57 for the first month. No obligation to join. Cancel anytime.

I just want to say how amazing this group is. I'm in my third week and I've gotten so much from this group already by just showing up to events. Today was a power packed day! Thank you all!

Beyond the Business.

Everything else you didn’t know you needed.

Perhaps you joined a networking group in the past thinking it would help you generate the business you needed. Instead, you found yourself in a "quantity over quality" referral group where it feels like you’re constantly trying to “sell” yourself and your business.

Maybe you invested in a coaching program that promised big results, but left you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of how to apply the information given.

The Small Business Owners Community is everything else you never knew you needed.

It's a membership to a community that provides thought-provoking conversation, inspires real growth, and allows members to build genuine connections with people who will offer genuine support, valuable insight, and a sense of belonging.

New! AI Slams: A Community Approach to Unlock AI's Potential in Small Business

AI is moving so quickly, the best way to keep up is to collaborate with other small business owners that are deploying the technology to uplevel their business. To facilitate sharing, we've introduced an 'AI Club' and regular 'AI Slams' - feedback sessions and "show and tell" to learn how to get the most from the tech. Whether Chat GPT, Google's Gemini or Microsoft's Co-Pilot, the community is working together to unlock the opportunity.

Small business owners are quickly joining our community so they can tap into Collective Intelligence, Inspiration & Transformation.

Pat spent two decades in broadcasting management and hosting. After leaving the radio industry, he spent time consulting small businesses and realized the support system for entrepreneurs was broken. While building the local small business community, the pandemic hit and the mission of supporting small business owners expanded. The group started as a daily Zoom call to bring entrepreneurs together and after 90 days, the Small Business Owners Community was formally launched on June 1, 2020. Since that launch, the community has connected small business owners from all around the US, Canada, the UK and Australia! The Small Business Owners Community mission is simple: It’s Your Dream, Don’t Grow it Alone®

Community is both personal and professional to me in the SBOC. I can't separate the two. I go to the community for business support, but I also go for personal reasons.

The SBOC was there for me during my separation and divorce. They were there for me when I put my business on hold for the first part of this year to get sorted, as the British say. The community gave me words of affirmation that I would be OK even when I thought I wasn't.

The community is there for me now as I reengage and build the emcee and hosting business—the community checks in on me when I haven't shown up for a while.I love to give to this community when I can, even if it's a joke or two.I am honored to be part of this community.

- Roger Wolkoff

The Small Business Owners Community is more than just another networking group. It’s a membership for small business owners who are tired of going through the ups and downs of a business building journey on their own.
