What does TCB stand for?

Taking care of business

If you come across the term ‘TCB’, it’s an acronym that stands for “taking care of business.” You can think of it as another way of saying “I’m getting stuff done” or “I’m on a roll today.”

As an example, imagine your friend at work says, “I’m really TCB today.” What they’re telling you is that they’re feeling super productive and getting a lot done.

Interestingly, the term ‘TCB’ has some historical roots in pop culture. When the legendary music icon, let’s call him John, made a comeback to performing live in 1969, he needed a new group of musicians to back him up. So, he decided to name his new band the TCB Band. ‘TCB’ in this context also stood for “taking care of business,” which was a personal motto of John’s.
