Franklin-based entrepreneur Laurie Guzman, president of The Inside Story, announced the acquisition of Southeast Business Forum (SEBF) from Franklin-based IT solutions company JourneyTEAM.  

The SEBF is a business and personal-based networking group focused on developing long-lasting business relationships. The group meets on a monthly basis with chapters located in downtown Nashville, Brentwood and Franklin. The main focus of the SEBF is helping small and medium-sized organizations with efficiency and growth, and generating success.

“Southeast Business Forum has created a great environment for businesses to succeed,” Guzman said. “I, personally, as well as my business, The Inside Story, have been positively impacted by participating within SEBF. It’s about new opportunities, new friends and people who provide incredible resources to my clients.

“We attract successful, like-minded individuals and companies who want to take their business to the next level. I am excited to take this next step with and for the current members of SEBF and future members wanting to drive their success.”

The history of the SEBF runs deep and has helped thousands of Tennessee organizations build their business through high-level networking. JourneyTEAM took ownership of the SEBF in May 2016, and helped grow the group to new heights in membership, meeting locations and attendance. Those enhancements included a new website, an easier registration process and measurable results to members.

“It has been a great opportunity building the forum and strengthening business relationships,” said Tim Andersen, regional VP of JourneyTEAM. “We are very excited for Laurie and her team to take ownership and continue to grow the forum at a record pace. We look forward to the continual support of the forum as we move forward.”
