Chris Bond’s kids think this picture is goofy.
I’m a business writer, meaning I help folks better understand issues that arise when overseeing a small business. Whether you’re a business owner and/or an advisor thereof, please feel welcome to come back to see business book reviews, blog articles, and other musings.
Okay, you may also want to know the riveting biographical stuff too:
For over 20 years, Chris Bond has consulted with small business owners in manufacturing, distribution, and business services. Chris specializes in helping business people make intelligent business decisions, networking on their behalf through a tireless approach to making connections every day.
Prior to starting Time’s Up, LLC, Chris was a partner with Next Level, Inc., a sales management consulting firm and an affiliate of Sandler Training. There he specialized in helping small business owners solve difficult sales challenges, in part through his co-founding of the globally influential Web tool SalesAccountability. Chris became known for taking the firm’s committed clients to their next level of revenue growth. It was this line of work that afforded him the unique insight into understanding an owner’s drive to grow the business or to ultimately move on to something else.
Chris earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing from Stonehill College and lives with his wife in Franklin. He’s a past board member of the Business Brokers Alliance of New England and has also served on the boards of the Franklin Downtown Partnership, the United Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Exit Planning Exchange (XPX). For many years, Chris coached his three children’s sports teams until they all got big and old and moved out. He is also a dedicated basketball player in a Sunday morning old-man’s league.
