RBC I Business and community leaders looking to revitalize their community and strengthen their businesses won’t want to miss an upcoming seminar titled “Once Optional, Now Required: The New Rules of Small Business Success” by Jon Schallert in Meeker and Rangely.

Recently, 12 business owners from Rio Blanco County attended his Destination BootCamp in Longmont (
The Destination BootCamp is an intense training for business owners who want to accelerate their learning curve, receive in-depth instruction, strategies and specific tactics to become a dominant “Destination Business” that can pull consumers past their competitors.
In 1996, Schallert left his successful career at Hallmark Cards and started his consulting firm, The Schallert Group, Inc. He began speaking to small business owners in cities, downtowns and communities (both rural and urban) around the country. In his first year, he spoke in 87 different towns and cities, and in each place, Jon would consult with 10-15 small business owners in their stores, restaurants and offices.
After years of maintaining this schedule, annually conducting thousands of on-site consultations and studying the most successful small business owners, he developed the proprietary “14-step Destination Business” process that he teaches today.
Some of Schallert’s corporate consulting clients include Kellogg’s, KitchenAid, Bank of America, Denver International Airport, Jiffy Lube, Ace Hardware, Anheuser Busch, Kichler Lighting and Hunter Douglas, to name a few. His insights are frequently seen in national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, USA Today and Entrepreneur Magazine.
