What is a Thriving Business?

The ultimate business for the rest of us and the apex of The Entrepreneur's Roadmap. We may not seek to be the next Apple or Uber, but that doesn't mean we don't want a business of significance. We want a business that serves our customers, our communities and ourselves. This is the business of our wildest dreams. It can be a reality. Here's what a thriving business should provide you.



A thriving business is mature. It can handle itself. It does not come to you with urgent requests or final notices. This type of business gives you free time to explore your other interests in life. We have one life to live and we want to experience all that it has to offer. A thriving business is our best vehicle for building these options into our life. Take two months off to walk the Camino? When do we leave?


We may not do it for the money, but that doesn't mean we ignore profitability. We understand that a thriving business needs to make money to support its employees, its community and its owner. Money can be a powerful means for change in the world. We can use it to make our mark on our communities - uniforms for the baseball team, a scholarship for a local student, sponsorship for a refugee family, you name it.




A thriving business provides its owners and its employees with a purpose. Its call to action is betterment of the world. We may not be the World Wildlife Federation or Greenpeace, but we are impacting the world in the best way we know how - through pro-social commerce. We take our small piece of the world and make it better. 

How we help

Every thriving business needs at least 5 systems in place: Marketing, Selling, Operations, People and Finance. We help in two ways:

  1. Set-up and maintenance of your finance systems so you can track your performance and plan for the future.
  2. Outside eyes on your business - someone you trust that is not an employee or family member. We get it.

We help business owners wherever they are on their Entrepreneurship journey. Break the Ice today to start building a thriving business with Avalon.
