What if you could get expert advice from 30 experienced consultants to grow your business?

MABC members have a strong commitment to perfecting our craft through professional growth and supporting other professionals along the way. As a result, collectively we have written TWO BOOKS containing tips, tools and best practices to help other owners succeed. 

We Wish We Had Known was published in 2021 and We Wish We Had Known, Volume 2 launched November 2023.

Both books contain 30 chapters written by 30 different MABC members using their unique expertise written in their voice and style. 

And, we are thrilled to announce that both books after launching became Amazon best sellers in multiple categories!
