Rise25 Revenue JUMPSTART

For Professional Services Entrepreneurs Who Want to Launch their First Scaleable Program or Product

Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart is a virtual, 6-month group program to help entrepreneurs from the professional services to identify and create their first scaleable “one to many” product or program.  

Graduates of Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart also get priority consideration for joining our Rise25 Inner Circle program. 

“One of the best groups I’ve ever participated in.”
Andrew Warner
Founder, Mixergy

4 Requirements for Acceptance

Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart may be for you if …

1

You Are a Business Owner Ready to Grow Well Beyond Six Figures 

Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart strives to get you ready for the Inner Circle which is for seasoned business owners and entrepreneurs earning multiple six figures, 7 figures and 8 figures in gross revenue per year. Most members 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.

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 Are a “Giver” – You Believe When you Give, You Get

Rise25 Group was founded on the belief that when you give, you get. Two quotes highlight our approach. As Zig Ziglar once said, “you can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”  And Oprah Winfrey said, “Surround yourself only with people who are going to take you higher.” When you combine these two principles, you get Rise25 Inner Circle.

You understand when you join a group of your peers, the best way to help yourself is by diving in and being helpful to the other members. We’ve found you will learn just as much (if not more) from discussing other peer’s issues, challenges, and opportunities because we all have blindspots and face similar obstacles. Therefore, we’re looking for members who are going to be active participants and roll up their sleeves to help others.

3

You Have a Sense of Humor and Like to Have Fun

Richard Branson said “Some 80% of your life is spent working. You want to have fun at home; why shouldn’t you have fun at work.”

We believe you can work hard and laugh at the same time. We don’t take ourselves too seriously and believe people who take themselves too seriously deserve a wedgie.

But let’s make one thing clear: you’re going to get tremendous value out of this group. The first and most important objective of this group is to help you to achieve massive progress in your business. The goal of the group is to make sure you accomplish your goals. But you won’t be bored to tears at the same time.

You are an Action Taker

We care tremendously about our members’ success and consider it a personal victory when you succeed.

We want to make sure our Inner Circle members take action and listen to the expert advice from the group. Sometimes we feel that we care just as much if not more about you succeeding so we want to make sure that you are invested in your own success.

What Types of Business Owners Join Rise25 programs?

Here are actual past attendees at our 2 ½ day live retreats, and the results they achieved after attending our events.

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

Tim, Business Systems Consultant

ProfitFactory.com

Tim Francis enjoyed success consulting to some of the biggest names in Internet Marketing. He had a problem, though: nearly all his company’s revenue came from him consulting, making him a bottleneck. 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 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. 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 for us.

Tim replied: “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. His team is on-pace to match 200 Entrepreneurs and Assistants in 2017.

“$3,000 from one email to a small list – less than a week after attending”

Matt Inglot

Owner, Web Development Agency
Podcaster, Freelance Transformation

Matt Inglot came to our Austin 2015 retreat. He ran a successful web development agency which he had systematized and delegated so that he could earn over six figures per year working about 5-10 hours per week.

His focus at the retreat was on growing and monetizing his then-new podcast and community of freelancers, Freelance Transformation. At the time, he had about 400 email subscribers. Using advice from Sherpa Dan Kuschell and others in the room, Matt came home from the retreat, sent one email to his email list, and made $3,000, nearly completely paying off his investment in the event.

Here is what Matt had to say:

Chris Johnson

Founder, Simplifilm

“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. Some of the most successful copywriters in the world… 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.”

David Garfinkel

Master Copywriter Co-Facilitator of Mastermind with Copywriting legend John Carlton

“I’ve been in Masterminds for 16 years and this is clearly one of the best I have ever been in. 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.”

Omar Zenhom

Host of “Best of iTunes” podcast $100MBA Co-Founder, Webinar Ninja software

“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.”

But let’s just be clear about one thing:

Rise25 Revenue Jumpstart is Not for Everyone

It’s not for you if you are “just starting out.”

It’s not for you if you are still “looking for an idea.”

It’s not for you if your only goal in coming to the event is you are “looking for investors or funding” for your business.

Why Should You Apply?

Do you come from a professional services ground but you want to “scale up”?

Would you like to diversify your income, shift from serving clients “one to one” to “one to many,” and move away from trading hours for dollars?

Do you get overwhelmed with different options for growing your business and struggle to figure out what to focus on next… confused about your options… only to find months have gone by and you aren’t any closer to achieving your goals?

If you get excited about setting an audacious goal for your business which is achievable in 6 months of focused, disciplined effort, and you want your feet held to the fire to achieve that goal (while supporting and encouraging you with the tools, strategies, relationships and accountability you need), look no further.

If you want help setting specific, concrete, and measurable goals, John and Jeremy to hold you accountable, and the possibility in the future of attending incredible all-inclusive retreats at luxury locations with your peers, then Quickstart is for you (only INNER CIRCLE membership includes all meals for 2.5 days, alcohol, excursion, and event). You may get personal time and specific feedback from introductions and/or guest Sherpa entrepreneurs who have built 7- and 8-figure businesses, then Rise25 Quickstart is for you.

If you want to “up your game” by connecting with influencers, thought leaders, and guest “Sherpas” who have built businesses from scratch to 8 figures and beyond, then Rise25 Quickstart is for you.

Rise25 QUICKSTART is designed for entrepreneurs who currently have an existing business and who strives to reach multiple 6, 7 and 8-figure milestones. We serve entrepreneurs from the professional services like consultants, lawyers, financial advisors, chiropractors, but who are ready to have a positive impact on the world beyond their hometown using emerging digital tools such as webinars, podcasts, books, or growing an email list.

People are chosen for Rise25 Quickstart to set meaningful and measurable goals, to be held accountable for making consistent progress on those goals and who strive to join a small and exclusive group of other entrepreneurs who have shared goals and drive.

What Makes Rise25 QuickStart Different from Other Programs?

 1am Late night discussion continuing the conversation after the inner circle proceedings with (head of table to clockwise) Eric Douay, Dan Kuschell, Jeremy Weisz, John Corcoran, Bill Bricker, John Lombard (everyone else sleeping)

Late night discussion around 1am, continuing the conversation after group dinner, with (head of table to clockwise) Eric Douay, Dan Kuschell, Jeremy Weisz, John Corcoran, Bill Bricker, and John Lombard (everyone else was sleeping)

Many other programs aimed at entrepreneurs, you get 60 hours of video trainings to go through or hundreds of pdfs to go through. We cut right to the chase with figuring out where you are and forming a roadmap specific for you to get to the next level. We focus on one on one calls for direct feedback and accountability along the way. We require you to take action so you can get the results you deserve. You get time to work on your business with dedicated feedback and strategy sessions where we will be 100% focused on you and your business.

We are also the only program that provides a potential for focused introductions based on your needs. For our Rise25 Inner Circle we have a unique “Sherpa” format with seasoned, 7 and 8 figure entrepreneurs who will sit alongside members all day and if we feel they would help you then we will call on them to help provide feedback, advice and strategy.

The feedback you receive is not a theory read in a book. This advice alone will deliver insane value, shortcut your learning process, and could save you years of wasted effort pursuing flawed or inefficient strategies.

You’re Not Going to get a “Rah Rah” Speech and left Inspired with no Direct Action Plan

With Rise25 QuickStart, you must be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Everyone’s time is valuable and we will be making the most of our time together, whether it is on a call or monthly accountability email checkins.

Monthly One-on-One Accountability Email Checkins

You will also get access to John and Jeremy’s private email inboxes and we expect you to email us monthly updates based on benchmarks we discuss on the initial call and strategy.

Priority Access to Exclusive VIP Dinners

You will get priority access, subject to availability, to VIP dinners and lunches John and Jeremy throw at conferences during the year. John and Jeremy typically put together 2-4 VIP dinners and lunches each throughout the year at conferences or other events they are attending, or when they are visiting a new city.

You Will Leave with a Specific Action Plan; You Will Not Leave with a “Jumble of Ideas” and Unfulfilled “Inspiration”

When you do most events or join most programs, you are left with a “jumble of ideas” and no specific action plan. You may have been excited and inspired, but that inspiration quickly fades. Ultimately, you don’t turn that inspiration into action, progress and results.

With our Quickstart, We distill down the firehose of ideas you have down to a specific 6-month, quarterly and 30 day goals. Then we distill that further down to three specific action steps you will commit to taking prior to the 30 day accountability Email checkin.

But What If We Made an Already Irresistible Offer Even Better?

For the “founding members” of the Rise25 QuickStart Multiple Streams of Revenue Program, we decided to create a special package of bonuses. Our goal is to make this an absolute out-of-the-park home run for you if accepted, and we will stop at nothing to make sure that your results exceed your wildest expectations.

It’s unlikely we’ll include many (if any) of these bonuses beyond the first people accepted.

If you apply and are accepted, we will have these exclusive additional bonuses:

Bonus #1: Immediate Coaching

If you apply and are accepted, we start work immediately. We begin working with you to set your big goals for the 6 month sprint, as well as specific actions you should take now. We will also get started with any relevant introductions to influencers, VIPs or thought leaders we know who could help you achieve your goals. That means a private call to go over the game plan for all of this.

Bonus #2: Access to our Rolodex

We are very protective of the relationships we’ve built, which have taken years and even decades to build up. However, we are only going to admit into this group who we’ve vetted and who we trust implicitly, and therefore we will gladly open up our Rolodexes to introduce you to the VIPs and Influencers, thought leaders and bestselling author/speakers who we know and who you could benefit from knowing, where there’s a good fit for an introduction.

Here’s the type of insider connections we share

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-10-54-16-am

It really is about “who you know.” We share opportunities with the Rise25 community.

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-3-35-03-pm

screen-shot-2016-10-03-at-1-44-31-pm

Bonus #3: Your Case Study In Front of 70,000+ Followers

We are determined to help you succeed anyway we can. Sometimes you just need that extra boost to get the ball rolling. We can still remember how the doors seemed to unlock when someone of influence help spread the word about our own projects. And now we want to return the favor and “Pay it forward”.

Here’s the deal: If you’re willing to put in the work – we will help to spread the word of your finished platform, book, website, online course or other project through our social media channels and give you the option to be featured as a case study to John & Jeremy’s 70,000+ email subscribers. It’s how we can give you the boost you need.

Bonus #4: “Dream 25” Joint Venture Strategy Session (First 10 Members Only)

We will do a strategy session with you where we will identify 25 people who you could potentially collaborate with or do a joint venture. These joint ventures could include partnering together to create a live coaching program, promoting a digital course, collaborating on podcast appearances, or more.

As a result of our direct introductions to our extensive networks, we have arranged for our members to appear on top-rated podcasts, cross-promote one another’s group coaching programs or digital programs, and even form businesses together.

When you combine that with the “network effect” of the people who join Rise25 or who know Rise25 members and alumni, it creates a very powerful asset which will continue growing in value in the years to come.

An “Insane” Risk Free Guarantee…

At our last Rise25 Inner Circle Event, we made an “insane” guarantee that people said we were “crazy” to offer, and which was unprecedented in the “live event” space…

We said “we are so confident of the value that if for any reason you feel you did not get at least 3x the value you paid to attend the event, then we will work one on one with you to make sure you have tripled your investment, or we will refund 100% of your money AND reimburse you up to $1000 for travel and expenses.”

How many refund requests did we get? Zero.

So, our guarantee this time is similar.

If you are accepted and you join the Rise25 Quickstart Program, you can try it out for yourself with zero commitment. If you decide at the end of the 6 months your time and money was wasted and you didn’t see the value then we both go our separate ways and we will refund 100% of your money back.

We can make this risk free guarantee because we are so confident, based on results and action our past members have accomplished, that if you form a plan and take action, you will absolutely get results.Plus, we only accept very few people so we only want to choose the people who will be proactive and want to roll up their sleeves and execute.

John & Jeremy say: “If you can’t recoup 3X your investment in the first year, we’ve both failed.”

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 hosted 83 live webinars during 2015. Using webinars and other strategies, John quickly built an email list of 40,000+ 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.

Rules

This will be a highly curated program because John and Jeremy have limited time. Everyone who is accepted will be chosen because they are a good fit. You will be expected to come prepared to meetings and for monthly email accountability.

Discussions are confidential unless you explicitly say in the discussion that it can be shared beyond with other people.

FAQs

What do I get with Rise25 QuickStart Multiple Streams of Revenue Program?
A: When you join the Rise25 QuickStart you get an exclusive one on one sessions with driven, giving entrepreneurs who will hold you accountable (and who you will hold accountable) and two seasoned entrepreneurs (John and Jeremy) who are 100% dedicated to your success and will open their rolodex with mentors and connections to also make sure you succeed. If you want to set big goals for yourself, achieve massive change or growth in your business and make sure you execute on what you promised yourself, then this is the group for you.

You get monthly accountability, 2 calls where you schedule one-on-one time with John or Jeremy and get personalized feedback, access to both John & Jeremy’s networks (we are both incredibly well connected and we will be introducing you to influencers we know)

If you’ve been to boring conferences with speakers droning on or paid thousands of dollars for courses that did not give you the specific attention you needed, well, our program bears no resemblance to those. We will be rolling up our sleeves and expect you to as well.

What happens at the end of the 6 months?
We are big believers in listening to feedback in our own respective businesses and for Rise25 QuickStart, so we will be gathering feedback on how to improve it going forward. Our goal is to serve you better and to bring in more dimensions over time, thus increasing the value for you and the connections over time.

Do I get One-on-One time with John or Jeremy?
Yes. We will have dedicated calls. John and Jeremy are all in with you and are dedicated to make sure you succeed. There will be 2 calls that will last for about 60 minutes with both John and Jeremy in addition to monthly accountability Email Checkins.

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.

Who Else has been in your Groups?
A: Typically in our groups 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 on up to 8 figures of revenue with up to 100 employees. Our members are interested in having a bigger impact and using new digital tools like webinars, ebooks, an email list, a podcast, to create that bigger impact.

While all of our members are seasoned entrepreneurs doing at least multiple six figures of revenue, 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 past attendees or anything else for that matter. You could be the perfect fit. 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 join, 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.

One of the things we do as a group is distill all the ideas we’ve gotten into annual, quarterly and 30 day goals for each person. Then we distill that down further into 3 (just 3) actions steps which you will commit to between now and the 30 day accountability Email.

It’s amazing to watch this process unfold and really helps distill down a jumble of ideas into a specific action plan.

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.
