What is COMPEL?
COMPEL provides you with a vision of what your company can be in the future and what you can be as the leader of that company to facilitate its greater growth and success.
Peer Advisory groups have been around since the days of Ben Franklin; and not much has changed. COMPEL takes a different approach – which is likely why we enjoy a 99+% retention rate of our Members.
We offer several different types of groups for owners and executives, each focusing on a different level of business – whether you’re a mature, established business working on strategy or a solopreneur aiming for greater growth. COMPEL members seek to progress during their career as business owners, moving from tactical CEOs to strategic CEOs with the end goal in mind of either the sale or transition of their business.
We have assisted many of our Members in both major acquisitions as well as the sales of their companies. Over the last 10 years we have assisted several of our Members in selling their businesses in transactions totaling almost $1 Billion without the assistance of an Investment Banker, thus saving them multiple millions of dollars. Many who sold did so at record levels for their industry.
The majority of those who sold have stayed in COMPEL as they transitioned to their next venture or moved on to becoming published authors.
Members who have been in our Boards for 10+ years have typically increased the size of their businesses by 3 to 10 times as we helped them execute the expansion of their markets and offerings.
Probably the best way I can describe COMPEL is to say it’s the place you go to have your answers questioned and challenged and to be held accountable for the decisions and direction you take with your business.

What Our Members Have to Say
“A special thanks to Jamie and Fig for bringing us all together, being a guide and helping to shape us into the leaders we want to be. I’m eager to see how this group grows our businesses together and the success we find for years to come.”
New York Fire Detection, Inc.
“Between treating patients and handling responsibilities with my children, I didn't think my organic skincare company would ever launch. No one held me accountable for progress (or lack thereof). No business owner I knew would take the time to provide solid, unbiased advice or provide opportunities to network with others when I had important decisions to make or ran into set-backs.
Being part of COMPEL put me back on track and further strengthened my mindset to keep progressing. Having support from Steve and like-minded business owners in various industries and stages of growth has made all the difference for me and my company. They ask the right questions and drill down to exactly what I need to do to make things happen."
Joy Moy Skincare
"I get honest feedback from colleagues who have faced the same situation. Their advice has saved me from making countless mistakes and allowed me to take advantage of special opportunities."
White Coffee Corporation
“What sets COMPEL apart from other CEO groups I’ve been associated with is the depth and breadth of ‘boots on the ground’ experience and the unadulterated commitment to transparency and truth.”
Corporate Values, Inc
“Great organization, you will be so excited and inspired to try the group out. It helped take me to another level. Well worth the investment.”
Wm. Erath & Son, Inc
Today changed our lives.
I truly hope you realize what Compel is doing for us and for your customers across all groups. What Mike and I have learned and have received over the last few months has changed our lives. I can only hope that others feel the same.
Today, Brad and Rakesh have offered to help us. Why? Why us? Two kids with guts. That’s all we are. We will not let them down, and will take this break to absolutely kill it.
Thank you Steve. Mike and I have derived unquantifiable value from the group already. Today was unexpected and a true gift. Just watch what happens next!
