Who can I talk to about my problems as a business owner?

Peer group organizations are your new best friend.

Consider joining organizations like Entrepreneurs’ Organization, Young Presidents’ Organization, and Vistage, when you qualify. But also think about getting involved in your local chamber or searching for applicable industry trade groups and associations [try simply Googling your industry and the words ‘trade group’ to see what comes up]. Other organizations such as The National Association of Women Business Owners or Conway Center for Family Business are also available for additional support and resources.

Can’t find organizations that work for you? Consider forming your own group.

These organizations are generally low cost or free, or you can always hire professional advisors to provide additional insights. Shameless plug – talk to someone like Gerber! Professional advisors who are accustomed to working with business owners can provide beneficial feedback. Enter your email address below to chat with a Gerber team member about your situation. 

Raymond James is not affiliated with any of the above organizations.
