3 Requirements for Acceptance

Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart Intensive may be for you if …

1

You Are a Seasoned Entrepreneur But You Want to Scale Up Further

The Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart Intensive is for seasoned business owners and entrepreneurs who are ready for a change. Most attendees have a background in the professional services and want to “scale up,” shift from “one to one” to “one to many,” diversify their income, move away from trading hours for dollars, and have a positive impact on the world using emerging digital tools such as webinars, podcasts, books, or growing an email list.

Some ideals you have are…

  • You don’t want to be a slave to your business.
  • You want to work smarter, not harder.
  • You want to scale up, but not at the expense of your family and friends.
  • You recognize a business is meant to serve a lifestyle and not the other way around.

You Want to “Scale Up” Your Business And You Are Willing to Put in the Work

You understand that “trading hours for dollars” is not the only way to scale up your business, and you are open to smarter, more leveraged strategies. You are not so stuck in your ways that you feel you have all of the answers, and rather you are open to new approaches, new mindsets, and new means of bringing in revenue.

You are an Action Taker

We care tremendously about our attendees’ success and consider it a personal victory when you succeed.  We want to make sure our attendees take action and follow through on implementing the strategies we will share. That’s why we only want attendees who are committed to actually implementing our system.

What Types of Business Owners attend Rise25 events?

Here are actual past attendees at our Rise25 events, and the results they achieved after attending.

Tim walked away with 4 new clients and a $100K+ new business concept.

Tim, Business Systems Consultant

ProfitFactory.com

Tim Francis enjoyed success consulting with a full stable of A-list clients, from bestselling authors to startups. He had a problem, though: nearly all his company’s revenue came from his consulting time, meaning if he wasn’t on the road, he wasn’t getting paid. Tim needed to find a way to shift from hours-for-dollars.

Tim considered a wide range of options, finally settling on creating an online course.

Tim decided he would create an online course which would teach busy entrepreneurs how to recruit, hire and train a great executive assistant, a skill he’d honed for years while consulting to CEOs. Determined to get feedback on his concept, Tim arrived at the Austin Retreat in November 2015 prepared with a particular question.

After explaining the idea behind his proposed course, he asked his fellow attendees: “What would I have to change about this course for you to be so excited you’d give me your credit card right now?” Taken aback, the crowd went silent.

After a few moments of silence, an accomplished entrepreneur from Nashville broke the tension: “OK, Tim, I’ll go first. Love the idea of getting an assistant. But I hate your delivery. I’m already overworked. I don’t have time to study your 10 hour course, then spend 4-6 weeks trying to implement it, then 2-4 weeks training the Assistant, only hoping I got it right.”

Around the table, most entrepreneurs echoed the exact same sentiment. Humbled, but still committed, Tim asked a different question: “OK. Let’s scrap the course altogether. If you want me to do it all for you, and you could have anything, what would you have to see for you to give me your credit card right away?”

In rapid fire succession, the audience rattled off: do all the job advertising for us, screen all the applications as they come in, give everyone a Kolbe test, Kolbe-match them to us, find the best match for us, then train them and onboard the new assistant.

Tim kept going. “I’ll do you one better: I’ll even certify them, and I’ll create an online community of certified Assistants so they can all help each other instead of them always asking you, their Entrepreneur, for help.”  The room was buzzing. Everyone was excited. This was a service they’d pay for.

And pay they did. Ultimately, four fellow attendees all handed Tim their credit card and signed up for the beta launch of his service, Great Assistant, bringing Tim $4,000 in sales immediately and a live test for his new business concept.

Since then, Tim hired a full-time program manager for Great Assistant, and brought in over six figures in revenue from the first 12 months of running the program, and was on pace to match 200 entrepreneurs and assistants in the first 24 months.

Mark Hiddelson

Owner, Specialized Storage Solutions, Inc.

Mark attended the Rise Breakthrough Retreat in April 2017 in San Diego, California.

Mark Hiddelson came from a service-based profession – helping companies to build efficient warehouse storage systems. (Ever been to Costco? Mark helps warehouses like Costco to put together those huge racks that go to the ceiling.)

And he had always wanted to organize his own event with experts from his industry, but never did it. Until he came to a Rise25 Breakthrough Retreat.

At that event, we helped Mark to hash out a plan to organize a small group event for about 30 people within 30 days.

What happened? He brought in about $30,000 in revenue from the event itself, and another $180,000+ in new client business immediately afterwards.

In this video below, our co-founder, Dr. Jeremy Weisz, interviews Mark about what he got out of the retreat:

“I made $15,000 in the first 6 weeks working with Rise25.”

“Man, it was one of the best events I have been to. There was a lot of knowledge in the room, a lot of humility. There was people who’ve been in the online business for 20 plus years, doing it forever. There was just so much great energy and a lot of people giving great feedback. Anytime you can get into an event like this, where there are a lot of great people that have your best interests at heart, you owe it to yourself to do that.”

If you have a business that you’re running or that you’re thinking of adding to your existing line of business or work, this is a tremendous incubator as well as a high level peer group and the advice is something you really couldn’t buy from a consultant. And I know ... I’m a very high priced coaching consultant. I could have come up with some of the ideas but certainly not all of the ideas for the people who were here.”

“If you are thinking about going to an event like this, I would say, don’t think about it. Just go ahead and pull the trigger. Because worst case scenario, you’re going to make some great friends. You’ll definitely learn something. You’ll definitely get some perspective. Even if that perspective is, “I’m doing a great job and I should continue.” Sometimes we need to hear that from other people to understand that you’re doing the right thing. I think that there’s tremendous value in going to a mastermind like this and so much to take away and learn.”

Your Founders & Facilitators:
John Corcoran & Dr. Jeremy Weisz

It all started with a simple idea. Entrepreneurs are stronger together.

The Beginning:

John and Jeremy have a shared background as professional service entrepreneurs who have managed to diversify their business revenues and move away from trading hours for dollars by building platforms for themselves.

The first Rise25 retreat was held in March 2015. Jeremy and John put together a one-day mastermind for great entrepreneurs in the SF area prior to attending the Mastermind Talks conference they were both set to attend in Napa Valley. With just three weeks notice, they threw together an event which included such notable guests as Mixergy founder Andrew Warner, Art of Charm podcaster Jordan Harbinger, and master copywriter David Garfinkle.

Their mission is to bring together like-minded entrepreneurs from professional services backgrounds who want to scale up their businesses, spend less time trading hours for dollars, and diversify their revenues.

John Corcoran is an attorney, writer, and a father, and a former Clinton White House Writer and Speechwriter to the Governor of California.

Throughout his diverse career, he has worked in Hollywood, as an early employee at DreamWorks, working for Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen, and he has worked in the heart of Silicon Valley, advising startup entrepreneurs. He owns his own boutique law firm in the San Francisco Bay Area catering to small business owners and entrepreneurs.

He is the creator of the Smart Business Revolution blog and podcast. After trying unsuccessfully every different possible strategy for growing his website (from SEO to social media), he finally struck gold in 2015 with webinars, and has hosted over 300+ live webinars since then. Using webinars and other strategies, John quickly built an email list of 60,000+ email subscribers.

John’s writing has appeared in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Huffington Post, Art of Manliness, Lifehacker, Business Insider, Get Rich Slowly, and numerous other publications, blogs and websites.  He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Nicole and their three young boys.

Dr. Jeremy Weisz is an entrepreneur and founder of a Chiropractic and Massage facility, a podcast host and producer, creator of an industry-leading chiropractic classifieds website, and nutritional supplement company.

Over the years, he has created numerous additional businesses to diversify his revenue sources, ranging from his work as host of the InspiredInsider podcast, to a nutritional supplement business and ecommerce business, online courses, and a classified website for chiropractors.

He has been profiled in Forbes on building up multiple businesses and in each case, he has built and streamlined and systematized the businesses in order to move on to new projects and spend less time working “in” his businesses.

He is the father of two young girls, age 5 and 2 and lives in the north suburbs of Chicago.

FAQs

What do I get with my ticket to the Revenue Jumpstart Intensive?
A: When you attend a Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart Intensive, you get a welcome reception and access to 2 full days and nights of training and all necessary training materials. In addition, when you attend any Rise25 event, you join an exclusive community of other driven, giving entrepreneurs who will hold you accountable (and who you will hold accountable) and two seasoned entrepreneurs (John and Jeremy) who will share exactly how you can scale your business beyond “one on one” trading hours for dollars.

This will be a very practical workshop where you will roll up your sleeves and take action. 

Do I get One-on-One time with John or Jeremy at the workshop?
Yes. John and Jeremy will be present throughout the entire retreat, and are dedicated to making sure you succeed.

What is included at the workshop?
You get all-access pass to the workshop. During the workshop, you will be present during the trainings and you will receive all written materials which are free for you to keep. All you need to do is get yourself to the hotel and cover your lodging and meals and we’ll cover the rest.

Why is the group called “Rise25”?
A: There is an old saying “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Used in a business context, we interpret that saying to mean when you help everyone, you will benefit as well. We will all Rise together by helping one another and holding you accountable.

Also, we all say we want to get more done in the 24 hours we have in a day. One day John said to Jeremy…”I feel like I get more done and it is almost like I have 25 hours in the day because of our network of relationships.” Jeremy said, “that is it John! That is our name!”

Our group can effectively be the “25th hour,” helping us to accomplish more in the time we have. Oh, and Rise25.com was available and do you know how hard it is to find a 6-digit domain? Seriously. It’s not easy people. We have a document 14 pages long of name ideas to prove it.

Where should I stay?
A: We strongly recommend staying on site at the venue in order to fully experience and enjoy the event, and we will have negotiated discount rates so that you can do this.

Who else attends the workshops?
A: Typically at our events we have entrepreneurs who run businesses that provide a range of professional services, from web development to wealth management to consulting, Facebook ad management, and coaching. We’ve had solopreneurs who run businesses that do multiple six figures of revenue, and we’ve had business owners who have multiple physical locations and 8 figures of revenue with 100 employees. Our attendees are typically interested in having a bigger impact and using new digital tools like webinars, ebooks, an email list, and/or a podcast, to create that bigger impact.

All attendees tend to be seasoned entrepreneurs doing at least multiple six figures of revenue, although sometimes we have attendees who have deep experience in business but they are starting a new venture which is still getting off the ground. Ultimately, “gross revenue” is just one number and the amount of revenue doesn’t matter as much as a good attitude and willingness to follow through on new approaches, implement new strategies, and focus on achieving results.

Am I even ready for this?
A: If you are not sure if you are a good fit, we encourage you to apply anyway. Do not be intimidated by other members or past attendees. You could be the perfect fit to round out the group. Remember: as Teddy Roosevelt said (to paraphrase) the credit goes to the person who puts him or herself in the arena.

Don’t disqualify yourself out of the gate. We’re looking for a diversity of different types of entrepreneurs and what is more important than what is in your bank account is your attitude and willingness to contribute and help your fellow attendees.

I am concerned that I would come to the workshops, get lots of great ideas, and then “spin my wheels” trying to implement them all.

A: This is exactly what we help people to avoid. Our Rise 25 Framework ensures you put in place small actionable steps to achieve your large goals and we keep you accountable and focusing on execution.  If you are worried about “spinning your wheels” – don’t worry. Our mission is to make sure that you follow a specific path and we’ll guide you back if you get off track.
