Make-it-Fly LLC’s Advisory Board 101 program has proven so successful in the Denver area that Make-it-Fly owners Victoria Munro and Dave Block have decided to offer it as a franchise opportunity for entrepreneurs. The Program has made its reputation by helping create community in the real world through its unique Advisory Board concept, which consists of 12 non-competing business owners who follow a curriculum and participate in practical exercises, brainstorming, discussion and strategic goal setting, while exercising personal accountability.
Recently, Entrepreneur.com called business peer support groups one of the 13 hot businesses, which makes good sense in the current economic downturn. Studies have shown that peer support ups the chances for entrepreneurial success dramatically.
Program graduate and small business owner Mary Walewski agrees. “I don’t know where I’d be if it weren’t for Make-it-Fly,” she says. “I would probably have had to go back to corporate America.”
Make-it-Fly co-founder Victoria Munro, who has successfully started and run nine businesses, says they knew the time was right to franchise. “Over the past five years, we have road tested this system,” she says. “More than 700 members have participated in Make-it-Fly Advisory Boards and Make-it-Fly Alumni Boards. We’ve grown Make-it-Fly into a vital, caring community committed to one another’s success. Now, we’re ready to let others do the same.”
