How much does it cost to join the Cultivate Community?

We work with small business owners of all sizes. For this reason, we have done our best to provide tailored advising programs at all sizes. We believe there must be an ROI on all services provided and work hard to give that value every day. Our average owner spends $1,200 a month with us for 1-on-1 advising, but we offer group programs starting as low as $200 a month.

What type of agreements does Cultivate offer?

We have three types of agreements: DIY training, 1-on-1 Advising and flat fee projects.
Our premier service is our 1-on-1 Advising wherein you work with an advisor each month for a set number of hours to move the needle in your business. With the 1-on-1 Advising, you get access to all of the benefits our community has to offer including our bi-monthly peer development meetings, interactive webinars, 900+ pages of business resources, free admission to our 2-day conference and more!
Our DIY approach includes all of the benefits included in our community without 1:1 advising. This program is great for those who are just starting out or looking to grow their skills but who aren’t quite ready for an advisor.
When appropriate, we also do flat fee projects.

Is there a minimum commitment?

Depends on the program, but most often there is a 6-month minimum for our 1-on-1 advising. The reason we require a 6-month commitment is that we are focused on providing sustainable growth. Based on the amount of time spent with your advisor each month to move the business at the right speed, it can often take a few months before you start seeing results.
Our goal is to become your partner and pay for ourselves 10x over. Some of our earliest clients have been with us for over 4 years and still continue to regularly meet with their advisor.

How much time does my advisor spend with me?

All of our 1-on-1 advising is customized based on the speed at which you want to grow and how much involvement you want from the advisor. Based on your needs, your advisor will recommend a number of hours to help you grow your business at the right speed, then your advisor will determine how much of that time is spent in meetings vs implementation hours.

How is the advisor selected for me?

We carefully select an advisor for you based on the needs of your business as well as your own personal learning style. Through our discovery process, we’ll administer an assessment to help us understand your personality and learning style. We will then take a look at the opportunities in the business and select an advisor who is well suited for you.

Do I only work with one advisor?

Often, the relationship is 1-to-1, however, sometimes it makes sense for an owner to work with multiple advisors, depending on the focus of the business and the advisor’s expertise.
We have had some clients who work with multiple advisors, one client, in particular, has worked with 4 advisors in 4 years to tackle the unique demands of his business. We believe it’s good to get the perspective of other advisors, and even if you remain with one advisor all of our advisors meet once a week to discuss the biggest hurdles in their client’s businesses. This helps to get multiple brains around a challenge and helps to create new ideas/solutions.
If you are ever assigned to an advisor and not feeling great about the relationship or don’t feel like it is a good match, were always happy to step in and make an adjustment.

What are the requirements to be an advisor?

All of our advisors have experience running a business and have undergone a rigorous 225-hour training program within their first year at Cultivate. Our advisors come from many industries and have varying levels of experience in being a small business owner. However, one thing in common is their passion and drive to help each owner exceed and grow their business.

How will you know my industry?

We’re industry agnostic, meaning we can work in every industry, but we will never know as much as you about your industry. We are experts in helping you develop the business side. You should be good at your industry and want a partner to take the business to the next level.

How would I work with my advisor?

All of our 1-on-1 advising is customized based on your needs. Typically, we set up the program to have 1 to 4 advising meetings a month depending on your tailored solution. Additionally, advisors will use time for impact hours, these are hours that are agreed upon by you and your advisor. This time is where advisors can prep, research and build for you and your business. It’s also common that advisors will work with your executives and team with impact time.

Do you work in my area?

We do! We have offices in Chicago, Green Bay, Arizona, Denver, Toronto and Vancouver, BC, but 60% of our clients are virtual. We even have clients throughout Europe and Asia, working virtually is our specialty.

What is the expected Return On Investment?

Although we cannot guarantee a specific return, our advisors are focused on ensuring each client gets lifetime value out of the relationship. To date, our average client growth is 26% year-over-year. We have a common phrase in our world, “if we’re not adding enough value or giving a strong enough ROI, we will fire ourselves”. Our job is to push you and help you grow, so we have the urgency and desire to ensure this is the case.

Do you only work with business owners?

We don’t, however, we always have the relationship with the business owner first. At times, we will be brought into to work with specific executives within your company to help them develop their skills.

What size of businesses do you work with?

We work with a wide variety of business owners and sizes. Most commonly our businesses are between $400K – $10M in revenue when starting to work with us. What is most important is that the owner is open-minded and has a desire to grow at an exponential rate.
