"With SMB Nation Peer Groups we are working to accomplish three things: improve profitability, overall company growth, and improve the quality of life of owners and employees," Peterson said. "We are building the next generation of peer groups, which are not tied to antiquated management methods or driven by vendor agendas."
According to Peterson, while SMB Nation Peer Groups will be available to anyone in the SMB industry who is looking to share best practices with other like-minded individuals in their circle, he did add that the ideal candidate is an individual whose company has revenues between $500,000 to $2 million per year, has invested in a PSA infrastructure, and has at least one layer of management within their business. "These are the types of companies that usually thrive in a peer group environment," he said.

Josh Peterson
CEO
Let's face it, Josh's 10 years of management consulting experience doesn't mean anything to you, and it shouldn't. People can hold down a job for decades and still not be any good at it. The only thing that matters is results. Josh knows B.S. when he hears it. It's what insulates you from your biggest and most expensive mistakes, tells you that everything will work out just fine when all evidence suggests otherwise and provides the background noise that makes it impossible to focus on the real issues facing your business. He helps you break down the excuses and falsehoods that keep success at bay, delivering a formula that he has implemented hundreds of times for IT company success.

Josh Peterson, who is leading the new SMB Nation Peer Groups, is CEO at Bering McKinley, an IT and MSP consulting firm. Peterson has a different view of who should be a part of the peer group universe, and described that view recently to ChannelPro-SMB Publisher Michael Siggins.

Josh Peterson: We have zero vendor participation in our core peer groups, so there's no agenda. We're not getting any back-end dollars.

Peterson: They are going to largely be separate. There will be occasions that a group will tie into the spring conference or the fall conference. But it's hard for guys to get out of their office for one business day, let alone be at our meeting for two additional days. That means they're out of the office for a week, so we are going to keep that separate for the most part.
ChannelPro-SMB: Will you be looking to attract members who are currently in some other peer group or those who haven't joined a peer group yet? Peterson: We do not anticipate being able to take guys from peer groups.
...
Peterson: We've priced it very competitively at $3,000. The big difference is we let people pay on a monthly basis of $250 a month. So we think we're going to attract people who [are] on the fence, who are not sure if they want to commit to writing this $3,000 check.
ChannelPro-SMB: How will the groups be facilitated? Peterson: The first meeting is an SMB Nation type of workshop.
...
Peterson: We are looking for members that are about $500,000 in revenue and want to get to a million.
...
Peterson: We don't do the groups by geography per se. If there's another person in your town who wants to be in the group, you get to say yes or no. If you say no we'll put him in another group. So that will be hopefully a non-issue.
ChannelPro-SMB: What are some of the other benefits of membership? Peterson: You get a free Corelytics account-that's $90 a month-that you're able to use all year round and really transform the finances of your business. Harry [Brelsford, of SMB Nation] is discounting attendance at his shows, and then we also discount our direct consulting services, and we also do accounting services for IT companies. We discount those services as well.
ChannelPro-SMB: Anything else you want to share? Peterson: If you're the type of individual who benefits from the feedback of others, there's a whole host of people who want to share what's working for them.
