“I cannot wait to apply these business principles to my business model. I am getting to know my business better than before this program. Furthermore, I am learning that I have more control over my business than I realized.”
What stage or type of business is Rebuild best for?
Rebuild is designed for existing businesses who are in operating stage. If they are just in concept but haven’t launched, other CO.STARTERS programs may be a better fit. Rebuild is intended for early or small stage businesses from any industry or market, including solopreneurs or freelancers. It is not optimized for high growth companies or entrepreneurs seeking investment.
I am part of an MLM or franchise. Is Rebuild still for me?
While any entrepreneur will find some value from the program, Rebuild is best suited for entrepreneurs who have built or run businesses around models they have control over or can change. An MML or franchise may not give you that freedom. However, they should be providing you with specific support, resources, and community as well at this time.
What if I don’t have access to technology on a regular basis to participate in a virtual program?
The live sessions for Rebuild are delivered virtually to any desktop or mobile device. Participants also receive a physical workbook delivered by direct mail to make it easier for them to work through the sessions and complete field work in between. We and our host partners will make every effort to get you connected to digital access to participate in the live sessions. If this is a concern for you, please let us know in your application.
I’m not sure if I can commit to the full program. Can I do part of it?
Rebuild is for committed entrepreneurs who want and need help, and a commitment to all sessions is required. We believe your wellbeing and your business are priorities, and we trust you’ll find the few hours you spend each session with your peer group working on your business problems together will become one of the most valuable and fulfilling parts of your routine.
Can the sessions be done back to back in a shorter timeframe? Why do they need to be spaced out?
We recommend Rebuild sessions be run once or twice a week at most. We have found it to be very important to allow adequate space between sessions for processing and applying what they’ve learned. Rebuild is also designed for business owners who are actively working in their business, often with little or no support.
Why is the program so long? This seems like an intense time commitment.
Rebuild typically runs 10 weeks but can be offered in as few as 5 by running 2 sessions per week. If you are serious about saving your business but don’t know what to do, Rebuild is well worth the time. The approach we use with Rebuild is a trusted model of providing deeper support for a longer period of time, which helps reduce overwhelm and allows entrepreneurs to tackle issues one step at a time with valuable peer support.
