  • Transition to Business Model: Brian’s partnership with Cultivate facilitated a pivotal shift in perspective, transforming Brian’s perception of the business from a mere “job” to a sustainable entity, achieved through the establishment of processes, delegation of responsibilities, and the formation of a cohesive team.

So I’ve been with Cultivate for four years now, and in that time, we’ve gone from single employee me at two million dollars to seven employees at eight million, and we’re starting to get more of a business. We’re not there yet, but I understand the pathway forward now, and we’ve done the hard part of breaking that ice and that first hire and making that first scary decision. It becomes a lot easier.
