“Last year was my best ever in business, and my goal is to make this year even better! In searching for a program to support that goal, I wanted to find a group of business owners willing to share their expertise and perspectives. The group also needed to be supported by top notch facilitation and coaching (I'm an executive business coach, so my standards are extremely high!) I've found the answer in Tribe Blue.” Sam Palazzolo CPLP PCC, Pathos Leadership Group

"The Tribe works. Marc Freedman understands my needs as an entrepreneur. The collegiality and support of the other attendees is great. Even better, the objectives-focused program triggered me to evaluate my company and focus on what needs to happen to continue moving forward." Scott Cleveland, VP Sales & Marketing, Ingenuus Software

"Tribe Blue pays for itself. There was no charge for my DallasBlue promotion. The sales covered my Tribe membership for almost an entire year! But the real benefit is long-term. I expect those new customers to generate $15,000 in sales. And that's priceless." Tina Bennett, D.C. of Park Central Chiropractic
