Meet Joe Phillips


After 23 years running businesses all over the world, I retired. In four years, I improved my tennis game, renovated two houses, took classes, and traveled to Europe, but the fire to grow businesses and leaders was still present. I missed the action, excitement, and challenge of running a business.

I realized that it was time to share what I’d learned. I wanted to help others grow their businesses and avoid some of the mistakes I’d made. I wanted to create a group and environment to share experiences and knowledge, provide a sounding board for ideas and issues, challenge each others’ thinking, and hold each other accountable. This helps  shorten learning curves and expedite success.

It was clear to me that CEOs/business owners are the perfect group to bring together. For more than fifteen years, I have been facilitating monthly CEO Group meetings and getting together one-to-one with each CEO monthly to assist them in reaching their vision, both business and personal.
