Roger Stalheim owned 3 start up businesses before owning the Des Moines Metro Alternative Board. The largest of those businesses was
“Iowa Insurance Consultants Ltd”. Started that agency with just a dream at a card table in the living room of my apartment and grew it to
3.5 million of revenue with its own established office Building.

The Agency was developed after the best practices format and we accomplished an agency that was 45% commercial businesses and 45%
personal lines with 10% life and health business. In the development and growth of the agency I was a board member of the Des Moines
Alternative board with John Viviano, as the facilitator.

I sold my agency after owning and operating it for 20 years in July of 2010. I found out that the old Des Moines Alternative Board had been
disbanded in about 2007 and an opportunity to start a new Professional Business owner Peer Board existed. I named the new board the Des Moines
Metro Alternative Board. By being a board member I experienced how effective a Professional Peer Board is in helping business owners
and decided to be a TAB Board Facilitator in Des Moines, Iowa

I received my Alternative Board training as a certified Facilitator in January of 2011. Launched the Des Moines Metro Alternative Board in March of 2011.
I believed I needed additional tools and training to be a professional trusted Advisor. In early 2012 I went to TTI International to be certified and trained in
D.I.S.C. In the fall of 2012 I went back to TTI International and received my training and certification in Tri Metrix HD. In the Winter of 2013 I went to Professional
Business Coaches training with CMT Milestone International and was trained by Carl Gould, who was the President of the company.

In the spring of 2014 I went back to TTI International and received my training in HRX to help people develop their skill sets further. In the fall of 2014 Roger went to
Toronto, Canada and received training and certification as a Professional Business Value builder with the Sellability Group.
My Business franchise has grown to 30 members with 4 boards. I am pleased to be a Alternative Board franchise owner and to be a trusted Business Coach

I have an Associates of Arts Degree from North Iowa Area Community College
I have a BA degree from University of Iowa
I have 13 years working for several Insurance Companies with my last position as a Branch Underwriting Manager.
