About On The Bus

On The Bus LLC

Formed New Years Eve 2010.
The name comes from the book Good to Great, in which Jim Collins mentions having the right people in the right seat on the bus. There is of course also the Grateful Dead line to the song The Other One, “The bus came by and I go on and that’s where it all began.” I got on that bus in 1983.
On The Bus was originally created to assist owners open sales opportunities. Since our inception, we have evolved so much more. We’ve worked with 100s of companies offering world-class sales training, coaching & consulting.
Our Sales Training classes are not limited to one school of thought. We have a routine schedule with an interactive curriculum discussing real-life situations.
We have seen great growth in those that attend regularly and people do go through the cycle multiple times. You can always learn something here.
