Expertise Areas

As a zealous world traveler and tenacious entrepreneur, Nancy Benjamin has a global perspective and years of hard-earned wisdom. As a Cultivate Advisor, she offers unique marketing and business expertise to help owners enhance and grow their businesses. 

For more than two decades, Nancy owned an import company that took her to remote corners of Southeast Asia. When she wasn’t climbing volcanoes, exploring fascinating cultures, or snorkeling off of secluded beaches, she designed and manufactured fine-quality home decor. She marketed and sold this unique decor to some of the world’s finest hotels before selling her company. Then she returned to her creative marketing skills, consulting small firms and start-ups. By joining Cultivate Advisors, she merged her two great passions–business and marketing– to help other entrepreneurs.
