What Is Small Business Advising?

What Is Small Business Advising?

We call ourselves advisors because we combine key components of both consulting and business coaching to help you develop as an owner. We work with you each month to bring incremental change and sustainable growth to your business. To give you what you need to see the most impact, we can split up our time spent together in a couple of different ways.

Planning

Get a custom roadmap for your business. Spend time with your advisor to get everything out of your head. Your advisor will help you sort it out and set priorities so you know what you should be working on to reach the vision you've laid out for your business.

Accountability

Hit your goals with regular check-ins from your advisor. You can set up recurring meetings with your advisor to review your progress and ensure you have what you need to crush your goals.

Build

Build systems and processes with your advisor. When you're working on a challenging project outside of your skill set, your advisor can speed up the process by helping you to build out tools or systems to implement into your business.

Skill Development

Develop core business skills. We have 1000s of pages of resources and tools to help you, and your team, learn skills that will help you grow your business. Your advisor will help you identify where you might have a gap and will help you develop skills when you need them.

Impact Hours

Save time to focus on growing your business. Sometimes you don't have time to build something you discussed in a meeting. You and your advisor can decided to use impact hours, in which your advisor can build out tools, systems or a specific deliverable before your next meeting, giving you a chance to inject them into the business faster.

Sound Boarding

Share your ideas and your concerns. When running a business, you might not have another person to bounce ideas off of. Use your advisor as a partner to share ideas with and gain that outside perspective needed to help you make decisions. It's business therapy.

Working with my advisor has helped build additional platforms in my business that I wasn't thinking about before starting with Cultivate. Today, we have more than doubled where we started less than 4 years ago.

I worked with my advisor for more than three years, and since then I have recommended him to nearly every business owner I've met (and probably to some non-business owners too). Together, we built a financial model with long-term vision, a recruiting plan, marketing plan, implemented leadership systems and solved nearly every growing business challenge along the way from being a solo owner-operator to a staff of 13. 11/10 would recommend.

We've had the privilege of working with our advisor since 2016, and witness the amazing transformation our business went through. Over the past two years, our recurring revenue model has grown 86%, one of our primary goals set in the initial planning meeting. The total annual revenue (combining recurring revenue and one-time project revenue) also increased 69.2%.

Our advisor is meticulous about all the details of our business operations. Her ability to dissect and dig into various issues of our business was extremely helpful in helping us understand the root of problem. With a Cultivate advisor, we have a reliable 3rd person to rely on for independent and professional advices. We highly recommend Cultivate Advisor to any business owners struggling with the issue of wearing too many hats!

Having a business coach is one of the smartest investments we have made as 50-50 owners. The feedback the experience and the perspective our advisory has been bringing in the last 2 years and continually brings to the table makes us come back for more every time. When hard decisions have to be made, we bring our advisor in on it to help us structure the problem.

I have worked with my advisor since 2014 and I have only great things to say about Cultivate Advisors. When I first met my advisor my business wasn't growing like I wanted and I saw the signs that I needed help and could not make the change I needed on my own. I was introduced to my advisor by two business owners and I thought if multiple people are recommending the same person I need to talk to him. We spent a lot of time creating systems and tools to put into place that I still use everyday in my business. My advisor has always helped me push past my comfort level to help me achieve my goals year after year and in the way I wanted to run my business and stay true to myself.

Working with Cultivate has been a complete before and after for our business. My advisor has helped us get clarity on our vision and goals, become more critical and strategic thinkers and stronger leaders. The impact of these sessions have clearly trickled down into the business results and - critically - in ensuring our team is fully engaged. I strongly recommend working with Cultivate to boost your business, and improve your quality of life as an owner. It’s like doing an MBA through the highly practical lens of your own business.

Working with my advisor has been an amazing experience. I have tried working with a few business coaches over the years but never quite got the real in-depth analysis and guidance from someone who was more knowledgeable in certain areas than I was. My advisor's personal career and entrepreneurial success also add to his credibility and understanding of business. Highly recommended!

Since working with Cultivate one of the things I am doing now is using data to make decisions that move the company in the right direction. After being with Cultivate for four years we have nearly doubled in size.

Cultivate Advisors has pretty much changed my life as an entrepreneur. My advisor has helped us on many aspects of our business. We drastically improved the way the automatization of many of our internal systems, our approach with HR and with the bonuses we give to our staff and with our growth strategy. We are currently working with Cultivate Advisors on acquisition strategies and building new business models within our own company. The future of our business is exciting!

I always felt like I had to do everything from the minutia to the bigger projects. My advisor helped us understand we were ready to grow and even helped us to develop our leadership skills. After working with Cultivate for 2 years we grew from 2 employees to 6 employees and doubled our revenue.

Cultivate Advisors have been instrument in bridging the gap from being successfully self-employed, to actually running a business. After 8 years of entrepreneurial experience, I was ready to take my company to the next level, and my advisor has guided me every step of the way, making the process of building the foundations simple and long lasting. Highly highly recommend Cultivate Advisors for solopreneurs ready to exponentially grow their business!
