Bottom-Line Impact Groups

The mission of the Bottom-Line Impact Groups® members is to acquire, share and implement the positive qualities of adaptability, teamwork and courage to become leaders, both personally and professionally, in the automotive repair industry.

BLIG Overview

In addition to working with some of the most motivated and focused shop owners in North America, members receive the following:

Monthly Financial Composites
Every month members receive a 30+ page comprehensive financial composite which provides all of the financial and management data required to maintain total control of their business. Group members compare their performance measurements to the rest of the Group and to industry benchmarks.

Cutting Edge Training & Materials
Members benefit from the exclusive training and support materials they receive in every Group meeting. Topics range from business financial planning to marketing, employee relations to capital expenditures planning, and all meetings include extensive materials and handouts. Additionally, members have direct input on the topics being presented, so they will be both timely and relevant. No two Group-training sessions are the same, and this training is not found anywhere else.

Regular Meetings
The Groups meet for three days, three times per year. The meetings take place in different cities in order to review facilities of the members involved. These are meetings full of coaching, accountability, goal-setting, and of course some socializing in the evenings.

Ongoing Support
Group members work through different means to continue the support of each other between meetings. In addition to the Group Facilitator and RLO Training’s Group Support, members are assigned a partner with whom to continue working towards improvements in between meetings.

Personal One-on-One Coaching
The Group Facilitator is available to provide Group members with individualized coaching on any aspect of business. In addition to the coaching, access to the myriad of support materials is always available on the exclusive Group website.

Exclusive Member Website
Members have access to our innovative Members-Only web site. These powerful resources are password-protected and available only to Members.

The web site contains many types of resources, from documents and forms to ideas and strategies that range over every aspect of business. Every resource in this web site has been proven to work.


BLIG Benefits

The benefits of the Bottom-Line Impact Groups® are many. Business owners have a variety of reasons for wanting to improve their businesses, and RLO Training has the insights through the Group process to help all members achieve their goals.

Many members want to improve their profitability. Others are in the process to train their successor for the future. Others are looking to obtain control of their business to gain more free time. Bottom-Line Impact Groups can help with these areas and more!

Individual Goal Setting
Facilitators work with members to determine, examine, and accomplish their individual goals for both business and life. Group members act as a Board of Directors for each other, providing insights for proper navigation of business through good times and bad. There is nothing more powerful than a well-directed team of minds focused on what is important for its members’ businesses.

Group Members strive to meet goals by encouraging accountability for each member. The Group provides insight and motivation to reach each target.

Shared Trust
Because of the unique structure of the Groups, all personal and financial information is protected and secure within the Group process. New members often feel uncomfortable opening up about their business, but they soon find that everyone in the Group supports and is dedicated to their success. Members soon realize how helpful the sharing process can be, and transparency is encouraged. There is a tremendous amount of trust that is shared by the members of the Group.

While there are no guarantees in life, Group members see substantial growth in their businesses year after year if they are willing to make the necessary, sometimes painful, changes. The support of the Group gives courage to change; it is often encouraging to know that someone else has had similar experiences and that the Group supports you.

Group meetings are structured to educate members through different controlled segments of the meeting as well as time set aside to explore different areas as requested by members. The Facilitator guides each meeting to ensure that the needs of members are addressed. Many times, ideas discussed at the meeting need to be further discussed afterwards, and peer partners, along with the BLIG website, are great resources for continued learning.

Special Member Pricing
Besides the cutting-edge training Members receive at their Group meetings, they also receive special pricing for other training workshops put on by RLO Training.



BLIG Training

Cutting-Edge Training
There are three Group meetings scheduled per year. The purpose of these meetings is twofold:

  1. To evaluate the host shop’s business and facility.
  2. To receive the latest, cutting-edge training available exclusively to Group members.

Meetings are hosted by the member whose turn it is to be evaluated by the Group. These three-day meetings consist of a facility and business evaluation conducted by the Facilitator and fellow Group members, as well as cutting-edge training workshops.

Competitive Advantage
The training sessions received by members at Group meetings are not available to anyone else in the industry. Members have important advantages over their competition: the combined experience, wisdom, and ideas of their Group, assistance and guidance from the Facilitator, and the countless resources on the Group website.

Industry-Specific Topics
The topics presented are industry-specific and geared towards improving members’ auto repair business. The topics are varied and range from business financial planning to marketing, employee relations to capital expenditures planning and much more.

Call to Action
Whether you are improving the flow of paper in your building or improving the flow of customers to your front door, building a new facility or building a team of good people, the Bottom-Line Impact Groups can help. The Facilitator and members have many years of combined experience with situations like yours, and they have solutions and advice for the challenges you face.
