If you want to succeed, you should strike out on new paths
rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success. - John D. Rockefeller

  • Condensed MBA in a can. The SEMP method is an effective and efficient way to focus consulting efforts. A number of years ago, I completed an MBA but found myself in corporate roles that only utilized a fraction of what I learned in my studies. Interested in transitioning to a career in consulting, I researched several different options and found the AASBC to have exactly what I was seeking. The AASBC and SEMP method provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to approach the various aspects of running a business and therefore how to best guide small business owners and managers. When I compare the training process at AASBC with a full scale MBA, I find that you dive deep into specific subject matter during MBA studies, but there is rarely an opportunity to view the entire process from start to finish – that is exactly what the AASBC training accomplishes. Having completed the AASBC training, I am proud to be an Accredited Small Business Consultant, thankful to have access to a wealth of information and a network of likeminded professionals, and confident in the SEMP approach to bring value to client organizations.
