Josh loves to explain business theory through a great story and is always quick to follow up with an analogy. An eternal optimist, he challenges his clients to see the potential in every situation. His superpower is asking the right questions to build a detailed vision for the future. “There is no such thing as luck in business. Luck is when opportunity meets preparedness. So, let’s get to work….”

Being part of Cultivate offers Josh the opportunity to work with small business owners, helping them achieve their goals and, ultimately, their vision. When he’s not helping other entrepreneurs succeed, he enjoys travel, family time, and good food. He spends his free time boating the lakes of Michigan and seeking out new craft breweries and gastro pubs. Josh is on a mission to perfect his margarita recipe and to find the ultimate pizza pie.
