Eric Gilboord

Eric Gilboord has worked with hundreds of Small and Medium-sized Business Owners over the past 26 years. For the last few years he's worked almost exclusively with BABOs - Boomer Aged Business Owners. Owners who were born between 1946 and 1964.

He is a management and business transition and transformation consultant, speaker, the author of several books, a columnist and the creator of hundreds of articles, seen in national newspapers and magazines, online and read regularly via his weekly emails.

His new book is 'Moving Forward' Get The Triple Effect - Sell your business for 3 times more and 3 times faster. Written specifically for Boomer Aged Business Owners. BABOs are going through a challenging time in their life. One of the biggest events they have to face today, is to sell or transition out of their company. Moving Forward is about both the emotional and practical struggles Owners are facing.

At the same time it serves to help the Owners family, Buyers and Trusted Advisers to better understand these challenges from the Sellers' perspective.

His first book 'Just Tell Me What To Do - Easy Marketing Tips for Small Business' was a best seller. The follow up updated Second Edition 'Just Tell Me More - Marketing Tips In 10 Minute Chunks' was released a few years ago. He also co-authored a book called Marketing Masters published by Profit Magazine.

Eric speaks to groups of Small and Medium-sized Business Owners on growing and preparing their businesses for sale and selling successfully. The goal is to increase the value of their company first, in order to sell on their terms and for more. He also speaks to Trusted Advisers to help them better understand Sellers.

GET ADVICE - You Are Not Alone

One of many valuable lessons I have learned from studying successful people is that no matter how famous or how rich they are, somewhere in their lives is a coach, a mentor, or an adviser. 

The first thing a new President does is establish their advisory group. This applies to presidents of companies or countries. You can't possibly know what to do in every circumstance, particularly if these are new to you. Smart, successful people surround themselves with even smarter associates. Getting guidance is an important element in your future success.


Talk with me one on one and get great advice fast. Move your business forward faster than you had ever thought was possible. Or get you and the business ready for sale.
