Sustainable Business Turns Overworked Entrepreneurs into the Successful Leaders They’re Meant to be

You’ve invested so much blood, sweat, and tears into your business. You deserve results that reflect your sacrifice.

Our one-on-one coaching, digital resources and online courses help you create an economically and personally sustainable business, so you can get the results you’ve worked hard for without feeling burned out every time you walk into the office.

We Help You Work Smarter, Not Harder

It shouldn’t be so hard to build a business that thrives even when you’re not at the office. Yet many entrepreneurs feel like they have to throw themselves into every part of their business just to keep up the momentum.

Sustainable Business founder Josh Patrick has been there. As a business owner, he felt like the weight of the world was on his shoulders. He spread himself too thin trying to get results, but his vision for what his business could be always felt out of reach.

Then he discovered a simple four-step framework that allowed him to grow his income, delegate with confidence, and create self-sufficient businesses again and again. This framework is called the Sustainable Business Framework, and it’s helped business owners just like you take their company to the next level while maintaining a work-life balance.

Today, Sustainable Business offers one-on-one mentoring to help you execute Josh’s framework, as laid out in his book Sustainable Business. We also provide ebooks and additional resources, so you can build the framework yourself with the support of a peer-to-peer group. Additionally, you can enroll in our online course, The Sustainable Business (coming soon!) where you’ll learn at your pace how easy it is to create a business that is economically and personally sustainable.

If you’re ready to boost your income, gain financial security, and love what you do again, it’s time to take action. Schedule a meeting with our team to get started. Or visit our resources page now and start seeing what you can do to maintain a sustainable business.

Our Core Values:

Personal Responsibility

We don’t blame others or justify our actions when we make a mistake; we take responsibility. It’s the only way we can make sure your interests are always first.


We walk our talk. What comes out of our mouth is what we do, because you deserve a partner who is true to their word.

Rights and Respect

We respect who you are and your rights and we ask the same from you.


We take the complicated and make it simple. We do our best to make it easy for you to understand what we’re talking about.


We believe in constantly doing small experiments. What works we keep. What doesn’t we get rid of.

Here's what our clients say about us:

This is where we would normally have testimonials from clients raving about our services. Unfortunately, we're regulated by securities rules because of our sister company, Stage 2 Planning Partners, and are not able to provide the wonderful comments we get from our satisfied customers....It's too bad and we're hopeful that will change in the near future.

Josh Patrick

Founder, The Sustainable Business

Why Private Business Owners Choose Sustainable Business:

  • You’re in good hands. We haven’t just studied the principles of building a sustainable business. We’ve done it. Founder Josh Patrick grew his first business from one part-time employee to 90 employees.
  • The process is easy. The simple four-step Sustainable Business Framework is easy to understand and easy to implement.
  • You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. With our process, you make small changes that bring big results—one step at a time.
  • We’ll keep you accountable. You only have 5-10% of your time to devote to strategic activities in your business. Don’t let important activities fall through the cracks. As your thinking partner, we’ll help you stay on track through one-on-one coaching or a peer-to-peer group.

Why Mentorship

Mentorship isn’t just about encouragement or direction. It’s about having an accountability partner who can help you avoid making costly mistakes, maximize every investment you make, and ensure your business is headed in the right direction.

When Josh Patrick first started his business, he made some decisions that seemed right at the time but ended up coming back to bite him. Having a mentor to talk to completely changed the trajectory of his business—and even saved him from going bankrupt.

Mentorship is a significant part of the Sustainable Business process. If you choose one of our services that doesn’t include one-on-one mentoring with Josh, you will still gain access to our peer-to-peer mastermind groups so you have the opportunity to talk to people who know what you’re going through and can help you achieve your business goals.
