COMING SOON: On-Demand Virtual Course

Stop feeling burned out, spread too thin, and exhausted every day of the week. With our online course, The Sustainable Business, you’ll learn how to execute the four areas of business sustainability: creating a values-led company, recurring revenue, operational irrelevance for the owner, and systematizing the business.

Our Programs

The Sustainable Business

We know that it’s important for you to have an economically and personally sustainable business. Unfortunately, there’s a good chance you’re feeling stuck and telling yourself there must be a better way. The Sustainable Business is built around the four drivers of business sustainability that allow you to have more fun, make tons of money, and love your business again. Once you’ve built a sustainable business, you can spend more time on what you want to.

The Financial Freedom Accelerator

When you don’t know what drives cash in your business, it’s easy to feel frustrated and discouraged. Cracking the Cash Flow provides you with a step-by-step process you can follow to stay in control of your company’s finances, and enjoy all the cash you need for your business and your life.

The Objective Review Program

Are you bouncing from one thing to another but still not getting tangible results? There’s a simpler way to create an economically sustainable business. The Objective Review is a two-day program that provides you with clarity about the project that will bring the biggest bang for the least amount of effort. You’ll work one on one with Josh to take advantage of the low hanging fruit in your business where you will get big results with a small amount of effort.

The Financial Freedom Project

To be financially free from your business, you must have enough cash to fill the four buckets of profit: personal lifestyle, an emergency fund for your business, a fully funded growth program and a fully funded retirement plan. The Financial Freedom Project helps you pinpoint where your cash shortfalls are and develop a plan to create the cash you need. With this program, you can stop worrying about having enough cash and instead feel confident about your income.

Sale Ready Company

You should be able to create a business people are eager to buy—even if you aren’t ready to sell right now. We’ve put together a simple program called The Sale Ready Company that will help you maximize your business’s value and efficiency. Our eight step program will transform your business into a company that others would love to own.

Grow Your Impact & Income with the Support of a Like-Minded Mentor

As an entrepreneur, you have many people depending on you. There’s only so much you can do and a limited number of hours in the day. If you don’t have someone on your side providing encouragement, guidance, and direction, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

The Sustainable Business offers one-on-one coaching to help you execute the Sustainable Business Framework in your organization. With our mentoring sessions, you can get the support of an expert who cares as much about your business as you do.

As your thinking partner, we’ll help you stay on track through one-on-one coaching or a peer-to-peer group. We’ve been where you are, and we know what it takes to build a self-sufficient business that thrives in any economy.

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.
