This Weeks Events for Business Brokers

Georgia Association of Business Brokers

November Monthly Meeting

November 27, 9:45 AM – 12:00 PM
Georgia Association of Realtors at 6065 Barfield Road, Sandy Springs, GA, 30328

Do you spend hours working on things that do not help you reach your business goals? Would you like to be in business 10 years from now? Then plan to attend the Nov. 27 GABB meeting to hear Networking Guru James Barber’s thoughts on how you can plan to be more successful.

Mr. Barber, author of the Networking Guru, Traits of Champion Networkers, will speak to the Georgia Association of Business Brokers, the state’s only association of professionals devoted to buying and selling businesses, on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

The meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. preceded by a free networking session and light breakfast sponsored by Signature Bank’s SBA lending department. November’s meeting will be held at the Georgia Association of Realtors meeting room at 6065 Barfield Road, Sandy Springs, GA, 30328.

In a brief presentation to the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, Barber noted that 80 percent of businesses fail within five years, 90 percent fail within 5-10 years, and only 2 of 100 make it past 10 years.

“If you are in business, even if you feel like you do not have the perfect situation, put your best plan in place and operate according to the plan,” he writes. “I have seen people who want to wait until XYZ takes place before they will do anything.

“My friend, Dr. Ivan Misner says it best, ‘Ignorance on fire is better than knowledge on ice.’ ”

Mr. Barber is a motivational speaker and best-selling author.  He loves people and is passionate about helping business owners. Through motivational and keynote speeches, training and writing books, he hopes to make a lasting impression on the lives of those with whom he is privileged to work.

He has been a Gwinnett Chamber Ambassador for a decade, and was named Small Business of the month by the Gwinnett Chamber twice.  For ten years, he served as a Business Network International director and area director. With his wife, Brenda, he owns ICN Publications, Training of Champions and has a part ownership of High Achievers .

In addition to his networking book, he is the author of The Next Level, published in January 2017, and his third book, Dominating Your Market, will be published in 2019. He served in the Navy on the USS Georgia.

The GABB is composed of professionals who work with owners of Georgia businesses. Many of today’s business buyers are individuals who have decided not to re-enter corporate America, but are ready to control their own destiny by purchasing and operating a Georgia business.
