About Six Figure Dinners
Where Business Owners Build Success Together
Six Figure Dinners?
Six Figure Dinners is a peer advisory board of ambitious business owners united in the pursuit of success. Catering specifically to small businesses with annual revenues between $500,000 and $5 million, our exclusive network is designed to give you the support you need to overcome your biggest challenges and spark your business growth through shared wisdom and collective experience.
At the heart of our offering is a unique blend of remote and in-person monthly dinner meetings, where meaningful connections are forged and solutions are uncovered, and a fractional Board of Advisors, composed of seasoned entrepreneurs and industry experts. This board functions not just as a source of advice but as a strategic think tank, providing what we like to call "Six Figure Takeaways" -- highly impactful insights and solutions tailored to your business' specific needs.
Our goal is to create a community where entrepreneurs don't just succeed on their own but also help each other rise. We’re committed to making elite-level entrepreneurial advisory support more accessible for the average business owner, providing a premium experience often exclusive to top-tier, VC-backed business leaders.
What Six Figure Dinners Is Not
Six Figure Dinners is not a networking group or a one-size-fits-all business coaching program. It doesn't provide generic advice or superficial connections. Instead, it is a carefully curated community that focuses on the unique challenges faced by today's small business owners.
By offering targeted guidance, expert insights, and a diverse network of consultants, Six Figure Dinners sets itself apart from traditional peer advisory groups and masterminds. It is committed to delivering a tailored, impactful experience that empowers its members to achieve lasting success and growth.
