How is your business innovating and providing something new?
“Unlike traditional coaching, we tailor our advisory to each client, based on their 5-year goals. We start by developing a strategic plan, and we’re not afraid to roll up our sleeves to help to help hold their business hats and build systems and processes in support of long-term growth.”
What do you like most about working for your company?
“We are changing people’s lives. It’s so rewarding to see the personal and business growth that results from a strong partnership with each client.”
What has been the biggest challenge in starting a business?
“I’ve started about a dozen businesses. The hardest part is all the work that goes into each one. The wins and losses can swing someone, but you have to keep your eye on the longer term goals by breaking them down into more manageable action items to stay on target. It’s easy to feel lonely or overwhelmed trying to manage all the business hats.”
What advice would you give someone who wants to start a business?
“Don’t start a business to be an entrepreneur. That’s just a flashy title. Find something you love, or have a real passion for and go from there. Passion trumps coolness every time. Additionally, we have free office hours, virtual training events, and toolkits on our website for anyone who is starting or already running a business. Anyone interested can contact us for more information. The toolkits can be downloaded for free at: https://cultivateadvisors.com/toolkits/“
How does your team manage working remotely?
“As you could imagine, helping our clients build systems and processes, we utilize a lot internally. We have teams in Denver, Chicago, Wisconsin, Vancouver, and Toronto. We use systems and processes to help our Business Advisors stay on track and drive real value for our 350+ clients.”
