DENVER, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the challenges facing small business owners today, The Alternative Board brings additional resources to the northern Los Angeles economy starting in August.  Owners of private small businesses are invited to Business Owner's Roundtables in August at Claim Jumper in Burbank.  Attendance is limited; RSVP for your preferred date by contacting TAB-certified Facilitator Tom Hampton, the newest executive coach and resource to business leaders in Burbank, Glendale, Hollywood, North Hollywood, Toluca Lake, Studio City, and Universal City.

Hampton understands small business owners contend daily with obstacles to their success and viability.  However some business owners maintain an optimistic outlook into 2013 and manage to thrive even during uncertain times.  What is their secret and how have they managed to beat the odds even in tough times?

The secret is in advice these business owners receive from their peers for suggested solutions to the challenges confronting them.  Business owners worldwide find that the best advice often comes from their peers – other business owners who have faced similar experiences and developed real-world strategies to sustain or expand their businesses.  The Alternative Board (TAB) offers these types of resources to private small business owners.

TAB builds boards of non-competing business with average revenues of $1 million to $100 million, where owners can meet monthly to tap into the wealth of experience and insight their peers bring to the table.  Up to 10 business owners, CEOs and presidents comprise a typical TAB board.  This peer think-tank format has been successful for tens of thousands of business owners globally since 1990.

Tom Hampton, independent owner and operator of The Alternative Board now launching in north Los Angeles, has a pulse on small business challenges.  "Even the largest companies face obstacles, but my focus as a TAB-certified executive coach is to help our local business leaders improve their lives," said Hampton. "Life is too short to continually struggle for success when, through collaboration and a little coaching, you can achieve more and feel better about your accomplishments." TAB-Certified Facilitator/Coaches like Tom Hampton help business owners spend less time working in their business and more time working on their business.  This shift from tactical to strategic leadership enables leaders to begin achieving what they originally set out to do as business owners.  

Hampton welcomes private small business executives in the north Los Angeles area to his TAB launch events with a special invitation: "What have you got to lose? A free, private lunch in a circle of like-minded business leaders who want to improve their lives is a great opportunity."
