One of the best features of Pillar Five is its agility. Like a world-class track athlete who trains to win gold in multiple events, our program is dynamic in that it employs a myriad of tactics, tools, and outside professionals to help small-business owners succeed now and well into the future.
It’s a holistic approach to success, and we believe in it.
When it comes to the role outside professionals and non-profit organizations play in that process, it’s important now more than ever for these organizations to jump on the Pillar Five bandwagon.
We are talking about organizations whose primary goal is to help established businesses and startups receive the education, tools, and support they need to grow a successful company. Unlike service providers (banks, CPAs, etc.), many of the programs and workshops that public agencies offer are free and come backed by professionals who may have owned their own business in the past and know what it takes to succeed. They are a sounding board for business owners to ensure they are moving down the right path, and they can be there to develop sound strategies years down the line.
Example organizations include:
- Small Business Development Center
- Small Business Administration
- Chamber of Commerce
- Better Business Bureau
Pillar Fiver gives these organizations additional help in expanding the toolbox of success they are offering to small-business owners across the nation. They can use Pillar Five to assist their members, and their business clients can use it to chart their own path.
