We pride ourselves on being industry agnostic. As a team, we have worked in over 180 industries, from home service to hospitality to creative agencies. And if there is one thing that our experience has taught us, small business owners don't need more industry knowledge; they need the core business skills to help them move the needle in their business.

How to build your client portfolio

Your success is important to us. As an advisor, you will undergo a vigorous training process, with over 220 hours of training in year 1 to continue improving your skills in all areas of the business. One expectation of being an advisor is building out your book of business. We’ll teach you the skills and provide you with resources to help you bring in leads to build your book. We also have a sales and marketing team to help provide leads, but referrals are our number one lead source.

The Cultivate methodology

We believe in propelling businesses forward. In working with thousands of business owners, we’ve developed a system to ensure we’re focused on the core business areas, starting with financials. Once you have your financials in order, there is a delicate balance of Sales, Marketing, Leadership, Recruiting, and Productivity that factor into the capacity and growth of your business. As advisors, we work with our clients to identify gaps in these core areas, help them build a plan, and then help them implement it.
