Ten sessions? Are you serious? I’m drowning over here trying to save my business and you think I can handle doing something more?
You’re a solopreneur or an owner/operator with a small team and you have zero time for anything else between keeping your business afloat, taking care of your family, and hopefully sleeping occasionally. Ten 2.5 hour sessions is a big ask. Rebuild is designed to save you time in the long run. How? Because you will walk through, step by step, what to focus on in what order to keep your business going. No more spinning your wheels or getting so overwhelmed doing everything at once that you feel like nothing moves forward.
We get it. Right now you have to be extra careful with every penny you spend. That’s why we’ve discounted our course as much as we possibly can. We’re banking on this being an investment in a stronger, focused business that will not only help you survive the downturn, but help you come out even better in the long run. What if just $30 a week could save your business?
Still, we recognize times are especially tough. We’ve made hard choices recently, too, and we totally understand. That’s why we’re also offering flexible payment options, plus working to provide full and partial scholarships for business owners who qualify.
As a small business owner you wear every hat from CEO to intern. And you’re doing a great job. This isn’t just a how-to program, this is a program for how to do an uncertain future. Back to business won’t mean business as usual for a long time. Rebuild can help you navigate and prepare for whatever comes next.
Entrepreneurship from the outside seems glamorous and fun, but the truth is it’s hard. It’s especially hard right now. Every other person in the program with you will be going through similar challenges. It’s not a failure to admit things are tough. The amazing thing is, when you share your struggles with each other, you all find the support and motivation you need to keep going. We firmly believe the community you form with other entrepreneurs is the most valuable part of the program.
Our programs are a safe place to be real. You can set group ground rules, like anything you say in the program stays in the program. So you can feel comfortable opening up a little bit.
Work with Expert Facilitators
CO.STARTERS Facilitators are business owners just like you. They’ve been there. They’ll help you take real steps forward through live video interactions and accountability. Ask questions and get one-on-one support and feedback.
Expand Your Network
This isn’t a self-paced course with an accountability group. You meet at the same time every week and grow together with other business owners just like you. The connections you will make in this program last long beyond the 10 weeks.
Talk about your ideas in real time, get support and encouragement, and enjoy outside perspectives. Sometimes, you need someone who isn’t as in the weeds as you are to help you see what comes next.
