What Kind of Entrepreneur Am I? What Kind of Support Do I Need?

The Academy is highly customized and designed to challenge, support and inspire socially-minded, highly creative entrepreneurs. So what kind of entrepreneur are you?

Emergent Entrepreneur: You have an idea for a venture, but need a structure that will support you in clarifying your vision, mission and purpose. And you want help devising a PLAN for getting there. You may be making decent money, but you are not living your passion. Or you may feel like you’ve had an idea forever and are now you’re finally ready to “take the leap.” You need support in vision development and want to know that someone has your back as you leap into the next thrilling phase of your life.

Established Entrepreneur: Maybe you’ve been freelancing for a long time and have finally decided it’s time to level up. You may have experienced yourself slipping into the “martyr” role – devoting yourself to your passion, but not making any money. Perhaps you’re burned out, stuck on a creative plateau, or treading water in a market that’s been tapped out. You have a solid foundation, but the castle hasn’t quite come together yet. You want to be met where you’re at on you journey with accountability, strategic thinking and brilliance.

Experienced Entrepreneur: You’ve identified your market. You’re moving products, selling services and realizing revenue. But now you’re looking to scale your business to the next level. You need high level strategic support and leadership development to support the growth of your business. You know exactly what you’re doing. You just need the resources, guidance, relationships and capital to take it to the next level.

What is the Structure? How Would I Be Supported?

Move The Crowd works from the inside-out. Before diving into practical nuts-and-bolts, triple-bottom-line business training, we help you explore and reframe your mindset. Unlike other trainings, we realize that your power lies in your uniqueness. That radical authenticity is the only road to success. It’s deep, subtle, powerful work – but you’ll get surprising clarity on who you are, what you’re about and your big vision for changing the world. We hold sacred space for your dream – and then give you the tools and support to actually make it happen. Each entrepreneur’s experience is unique and highly customized.

And breakthroughs…BIG breakthroughs.
