4 Pillars of Passages To Success
Client Acquisition • Growth • Culture • Exit Strategy
Each calendar quarter, events will be focused on specific topics related to one of the pillars. You will have the opportunity to listen, learn and interact with subject matter experts offering their insights and experience in each of these critical areas.
You can’t have a business without customers. Passages To Success will help you with sales and marketing strategies specifically for small business owners that will help you attract more clients.
We all want it, but many of us are not prepared to deal with it when it hits. Whether it’s new employees, new products, or new locations, responsible growth is critical to scaling your business and setting you up for long term success.
Be intentional about the type of culture you want for your business, and that begins before you hire your first employee. Passages To Success will help you with defining/refining your story and articulating your mission/vision/values as well as providing tools to help you navigate your growth and give you insights on when to hire and recruiting strategies.
Passages To Success will help you consider the long term plan for this business and help you visualize the ultimate goal for your business. Also, it will help you with contingency planning and putting proper protection in place to help you prepare for the unexpected.

★★★★★ These three business owners along with their guest speakers create a space that is dynamic, fun and insightful for both speakers and guests. This is where real conversations happen about the hard stuff of really running your own business..You will come away with useful insights to use in your business and have laughed a whole heck of a lot learning it!

★★★★★ Safe place to be real about business, life and all the nitty gritty details. We get to leave all the stiff suits, elevator pitches and salesy garbage at the office. Be vulnerable and ask for advice and support each other in all areas of business.
-Jamie Y., Battle Ground, WA
★★★★★ BOB is more than simply a podcast – it’s an organic and authentic PNW community where folks from across the business spectrum can share their stories and insights in a relaxed setting that is infused with passion, humor, and an overall welcoming vibe. The atmosphere is relaxed, and especially during the pandemic, it’s great just to be able to meet and network with owners and leaders from all types of local small businesses.
-John B., Vancouver, WA
★★★★★ I have had many run ins with the good dudes from the BOB podcast and a couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to bring it full circle and appear as a guest speaker to their exclusive Happy Hour session only available to members, and man did I have a blast! The format was loose yet structured and the conversations were candid yet profound. I recommend anyone who loves connecting with local business owners and like minded entrepreneurs to join and get in on some of the unfiltered and unedited “happy hour” style of networking action that is BOB.
