Drive My Biz to WOW! is an online, on-demand, "do-it-yourself," virtual business advisor based on the book, Five P's to a "WOW!" Business, written by Bill Matthews.

This is not a one-time course. It's a comprehensive toolkit designed for long-term use that guides each business through the Five P system of professional management using a "learn and do" approach.

For about the cost of one hour with a consultant, you get a full year of 24/7 access to time-tested "best practices."

The process is most effective when the entire management team participates, and the organization's leader is genuinely committed to implementation.

The Five P System is presented in 23 simple, sequential, repeatable steps, shown graphically in the WOW Racetrack.

You begin your journey by completing the Business Assessment Survey which will provide your organization with a baseline score between 0 and 100, and will allow you to measure your progress after each lap around the Racetrack.

Next, you view the videos in sequence, since each step builds on the one before it. An exercise follows each video. The downloadable Driver's Logbook contains all of the exercises so that you can keep your work in a single location for review and reference.

After you complete the first 23-step lap around the Racetrack, you repeat the Business Assessment Survey to get a new score and measure your progress. Then, you begin again on the next lap and repeat the 23-step process.

Some of the Racetrack steps require more implementation time than others. Depending upon your level of commitment and the size of your organization, the first lap typically takes three to twelve months, but each successive lap requires less time as your organization's performance improves, and your score gets closer to 100.

We've often been told that we know how to make things simple, and we applied those same principles when developing Drive My Biz to WOW!

If you follow the Racetrack and continue to repeat the process lap after lap, your organization will reach levels of performance you never thought possible.

To help you navigate the WOW Racetrack, we've also included "how to" videos and support tools covering four very popular topics: Establishing a Board of Advisors, Running Effective Board Meetings, Creating a Winning Culture, and Rewarding Key Employees Without Surrendering Stock.

For those who prefer closed captioning, each video offers the option to turn closed captioning on or off. Just go to the bottom of the video where the sliding video-progress bar is shown, and then click on the "CC" icon. You'll see three choices. "Off" turns closed captioning off, "English" turns closed captioning on, and "Search" allows you to view the script in a more expansive way. If you're viewing the video on a mobile device, you might not see the "CC" icon unless you first click on the three dots to the right of the running timer.
