About Us

Small Business owners are the backbone of their communities.  These business owners possess the inspiration, energy and perseverance to operate their business in an environment with little access to professional support, infrastructure and “through the door” customers and we think they deserve support.  Let’s face it, if there are no small businesses operating in small towns, there is no town.

From start-up to succession, Business Model Compass has been created to support small business owners to establish, operate and grow their businesses and improve their local economies.  Business Model Compass was the inspiration of Lisa Wain and Jakki Goodall, who are small business operators and supporters of many years.
