Description

Resolve roadblocks and discover opportunities
with us and a mastermind community of peers
using proven principles to level up your game

javan-headshot-6-212x300

 Hi, I’m Javan (on the left)

and I’m Rob (on the right).

And we want you to exponentially grow your business; understand and charge your value; remove the barriers for your clients and customers; answer sticky questions; be a part of a supportive, kick in the ass community; and fully affect the change you want to create in the world.

rob-face-300x300-bw

The long and short of the program: 3 months of business coaching and mentorship starting September 15, 2017 to help you work on your business while you’re working in your business, addressing your roadblocksfrustrations and opportunities with us and a mastermind community of peers working in regenerative businesses, using solutions and principles to level up. 

If this sounds good ask yourself:

Is my business where I want it to be?

If it is, fantastic. Let’s have you on our podcast, showcase your business as a case study and work together on a project.

If your answer to the question is, “not really” or a flat out “nope”, then grab a cup of tea or beer, sit down in your comfy chair or up against a tree, print this off or bring your computer and answers the questions below.

Are you consumed with working in your business vs on your business?

Are you saying yes to every opportunity and regretting 90% of them?

Are you struggling to understand your value and stand behind it?

Are you afraid of charging your value because of what your clients and peers might think of you?

Are you confused on how to communicate your value to potential clients?

Are you working on an established business that’s not where you want it to be?

Are you working on a great idea and worried you don’t have the big view to make it a success?

What could you do with direct conversations with two experienced entrepreneurs who’ve made the mistakes you’re making now (and many, many more), and used those mistakes to craft principles and techniques that not only built their own successful businesses, but their students and clients’ successful businesses in design, food production and consulting?

We think you’d be able to improve your business exponentially.

In fact, we know it: because we’ve done it before.

We’re here to share the principles, the lessons, and all the juicy bits we’ve learned over nearly two decades of doing business ourselves, and the knowledge we’ve gained working with our clients to build their livelihoods.

  • The value gained for early and mid-stage entrepreneurs from this program is significant. Rob and Javan are incredibly generous with their expertise, sharing from their own failures, and providing powerful tools to leverage your business profitability now. I highly recommend this dynamic program

ORIGINS

Recently, Rob and I were speaking with a group of students during a Permaculture Design Certificate, and we had an idea. What if we sat down and offered an open season session where students could ask us any question, or flat out advice on their ideas for a new or existing business or about our businesses?

We asked the students if they were interested, and their reply was a resounding YES!

So we deployed a rapid prototype, an hour and half session, right then and there that very same night.

The results?

Three quarters of the class didn’t want to leave, it was twice as long as we planned and several students told us:

This was the most valuable session of the course,

and perhaps the most useful stuff I heard this year.

THE PONDERING

That got us thinking: how could we help our students, clients, friends and colleagues improve their businesses?

We are in our work because we feel it’s the best way we can help the planet and each other grow and thrive during times of uncertainty. And, so many of the people we want to succeed are struggling either because they aren’t asking the right questions or they aren’t honest with themselves about their businesses, markets or product, or the essentials of their enterprise.

We’ve helped clients, students, and even colleagues improve their own design, consulting, farm and education businesses; magnifying their effect – producing businesses that both thrive and contribute socially, ecologically, financially and more…

But we looked around and saw our clients, friends, students and colleagues struggling with the same things we did years ago. We realized it all boiled down to one essential question that all those students, clients and colleagues were asking:

What would have helped us best when we were starting out in our own businesses?

THE SOLUTION

We answered that question by developing a 3-month program all about communicationcamaraderie and getting into the core of what makes you and your business tick.

The program is based on what we would have needed to excel in our design, consulting, farm and education businesses, looking back to where we started and where we were in the middle.

Here are the High-level Features of Our Program:

PRINCIPLES

Over 3 months, you’ll get 6 principles, explained in 6 audio files, and we’ll follow up with weekly live 1.5 hour Q&A webinar sessions for each.

MENTORSHIP

You’ll be surrounded by motivated and like-minded entrepreneurs and have access to a private community forum.

OPEN SESSION Q&A

You’ll get ample opportunity to ask hard questions and get real answers directed at either or both of us.

RECORDINGS

Audio from all webinars will be recorded,  and ready for you when you need it.

GROWING GOOD BUSINESS

You’ll get immediate and unexpiring access to over 2.5 hours of professionally recorded videos of 9 successful regenerative business entrepreneurs who shared their advice on launching their businesses and careers.

WHY US?

We live, breathe and sleep design and land base business work.

We’ve individually been steeped in this work for close to a decade each, helping students, colleagues, and clients improve and grow their ideas into viable businesses, and their struggling businesses into thriving operations.

RECENTLY WE'VE HELPED:

  • … a poultry farming couple double their product income.
  • … a young permaculture designer increase their consulting rates by 10X, with clients still saying ‘you aren’t charging enough!’.
  • …two edible landscaping businesses narrow in on their weak links massively increase their peace of mind and double their gross income.
  • …help catalyse 50+ regenerative businesses throughout Canada
  • … a land designer to see they were experienced enough not to take $4,000 worth of training.
  • … a sheep farm save $20,000 in infrastructure costs.
  • …reposition and brand a farm to be a product leader in grass-fed protein within their bioregion. This farm increased all their prices by 33%.
  • …assist countless consulting businesses (former students) in understanding how to determine their value, position their consultancy and sell and charge for jobs.
  • … an edible landscape design client understand that having a name people understand and identify with is more important than what you do in an industry that is new and hard to comprehend.
  • … an incubator farm structure their land base agreements to accept the farmers they love, and joyfully say no to the ones they don’t.
  • … a client decide to purchase a $750,000 home for rental income (which they did).
  • … a micro-dairy reorganize their milk CSA to decrease work and increase total net profit and customer satisfaction.
  • … a not-for-profit create a food forest that produces income and demonstrates their value to the world.
  • …prevent a couple from spending approximately $1,500,000 on a non profitable project
  • I would not be at nearly the same point in my career, nor would I be the same person, if it weren’t for Rob’s influence in my business and life.

  • This program has already been worth much more then investment I made in signing up. I know the lessons will continue to influence how I run my businesses for the rest of my life meaning that it has been invaluable to me. I wish I could have had this kind of mentorship 5 years ago.

WHO'S THIS PROGRAM FOR?

In short, this program is for us.

This is the program we wished we had 5-10 years ago before, just as we were starting out.

It’s for people like the clients, students, and colleagues we’ve worked with before, including:

  • Land designers
  • Broad-scale farmers
  • Small Business Owners who align their ethics with their practices
  • Ranchers
  • Small-scale farmers (incl. Urban Farmers, Mushroom Growers, Flower Growers)
  • Educators
  • Agricultural Value Added Producers
  • Small Livestock Farmers
  • Charcuterie Artists
  • And those who see the uncertainty in the world and want to help by adding their ethics paired with their efforts thoughtful and purposefully.

Beyond the occupations of the folks above, this program is for those that find themselves nodding with the statements below.

I have a business…

  • idea but I’m worried about how to start.
  • that isn’t as profitable as I want it to be.
  • that I’m working IN but not ON and it’s starting to get to me.
  • that runs my life, instead of supporting my life.
  • that I subsidize with other work; be it off the farm or off the desk.
  • that I love but it needs fine-tuning.
  • that I work alone in, and outside support and community would make all the difference.
  • and would love support from mentors who have a proven track record of helping folks like yourself make more money and feel better about my work.

If you found yourself saying, “That’s me” or “Oh man, is that me to the above, we think you’ll like our approach of working on principles and the results they produce.

  • Rob Avis has not only been an inspiration to me in my business since the day I met him, he helped support me through the first broadacre design I undertook as a professional. Knowing I had his expertise to draw on gave the client the confidence to hire me for the job. Rob coached me through the design and placement of a dam which would have been beyond my scope of practice had I not had his support. That job has earned me $15,000 to date and is still ongoing. This has since led to many other broadacre designs. Knowing I have Rob's knowledge and experience to draw on should I need it reassures me that I can provide the best for my clients.

  • The mentorship provided by both Rob and Javan has been invaluable to our growth. My recommendation for other entrepreneurs and leaders is to view your accountability partner as if you own a part of their business. Learn how their processes work who they are and what motivates them everyday. This is the chance dive into someone else's business with an all inclusive pass and be ready for them do the same! This expands your capacity to learn and build on solutions something I would never receive without this important element of our personal regeneration.

WHAT YOU’LL GET…

If you’ve gotten this so far, you’ve probably at least agreed that you might be a fit. So – read on for the nitty gritty details of what is actually included and how we’ve structure the program.

THE PRINCIPLES

Over 3 months, you’ll get 6 principles, explained in 6 audio files, delivered to your Inbox on the first and third week of the month.

At the end of the week, we’ll follow up with a live 1.5 hour Q&A session answering any and all questions about that principle helping you to understand, integrate and move past any resistance you have to adopting the principle in your business.

You’ll learn to use principles over recipes, acquiring mastery as they help you think for yourself rather than being dependent on any one person or tool. Working with principles not only makes you money, it saves you money…

Learn more about why we think principles are so important and so foundational to business success in the tab titled “Principles”.

  • I was working on a mycology project and was about to invest $25,000 and I thought, ‘I need Javan!’ But I stopped and instead asked, ‘What would Javan do?’ He’d tell me to use the principles and tools I built with him. I considered the opportunity and found out it wasn’t a good fit. The money was never spent. THANK YOU.

THE MENTORSHIP

Connecting with peers, colleagues and thought leaders within our industry has been a foundational, irreplaceable element in our success – as entrepreneurs, consultants, and community members.

We regularly mastermind with each other and connect with forerunners in the farming and design field including:

  • Geoff Lawton
  • Joel Salatin
  • Jude Hobbs
  • Darren Doherty
  • Ariel Greenwood
  • Curtis Stone
  • Grant Shultz
  • Gregori Landua
  • Ethan Soloviev Roland
  • Matt Powers
  • Luke Callahan
  • Zach Weiss
  • And many, many others.

If it’s true that you are the average of the 5 people you connect with most often, then it’s by hanging out with each other, the folks above and many others, that we’ve levelled up 2-3x this year alone.

During our program, we’ll be surrounded by motivated and like-minded entrepreneurs that have each other’s best interest in mind, just as you’ll have their best interest in mind.

Everyone from beginning to end shows up with value to help each other level up and improve themselves and their businesses.

Everyone will have access to this mentorship community via a private forum where you can ask for help and answer the call for help from others.

  • Javan's curiosity, breadth of knowledge, and thoughtful perspective all combine to make him a valued advisor to everyone in the regenerative agriculture movement.

OPEN SEASON VIDEO Q&A

One thing we’ve benefitted greatly from is frank and open discussions with colleagues.

Open season Q&A sessions are opportunities to ask hard question and get real answers.

Not to mention raw feedback.

In our personal mastermind sessions with each other, the ability to ask frank and open questions has allowed us to peer into the inner workings of each other’s businesses and ask “Why is that there? What do you do with it? Is it useful?”

On the second and fourth week of each of the 3 months, we’ll have a 1.5 hour Open Season Q&A webinar. Everyone who shows up can ask what they need to. We’ll answer and the rest of the group can weigh in on our Mastermind Community.

As Rob said the other day, “I would have given anything to ask someone design or business questions when I started. I made so many mistakes that were avoidable now that I look back.”

Even if that question is “Is this really the right business for me?”

And the answer is “No.”

Sometimes the answer is a negative-positive, telling us what not to do, which is valuable beyond measure, saving you thousands of hours of life energy; the ultimate currency.

Think back to when you were starting something new. If you had the opportunity to ask any question about anything and receive balanced, thoughtful commentary by someone who took on your problem as their own, how would that have changed the outcome?

We know the answer – as we have clients right now who are paying us $300-600/hr and up with some paying us $5,000 to $8,000 a month to keep us on retainer for design work advice and business coaching.

But, that isn’t your cost… not by a long shot.

  • Since being engaged with Rob and Javan in this mentorship process, we have gleamed too many gems to mention them all here. One of which has been a total shift in our sales process when speaking to prospective clients. Through the new intake process we developed from this mentorship, we have now increased our design/diagnosis rates by 50% - 300% and created ease and clarity with each new client we interact with.

UNLIMITED, UNEXPIRING ACCESS TO A RECORDING OR EVERY WEBINAR 

Have you ever been to an amazing event, listened to the presenter and the audience’s questions and thought, “Man, I wished I had recorded that?”

Or worst yet, perhaps you have to miss a call.

The good news is that all of audio from each webinar will be recorded and available for you to download. You can listen at your leisure if you can’t make the call, or want to go back and listen to a particularly good piece of advice.

  • Javan's impact on my professional life has been critical to my success. He has a unique ability to perceive opportunities and to provide sound feedback. It's apleasure working with such a down-to-earth mentor and friend.

VERGE GROWING GOOD BUSINESS VIDEO SERIES

A few years ago during the first Permaculture Voices Conference in San Diego, Verge interviewed successful permaculturists for advice on launching a permaculture career. Experts from across the board – and around the world – let us in on their secrets to success. From Geoff Lawton, world-renowned permaculture designer and teacher, to Doniga Markegard, holistic management cattle rancher, to Jack Spirko, host of the wildly popular Survival Podcast – we were lucky to meet and learn from so many great and creative minds!

Upon registration you’ll ge access the full-length footage of our 9 best interviews to guide you in launching your career! (That’s over 2.5 hours of business advice from the pros).

  • I can confidently say that every $100 I have put into Rob's mentoring or courses has led to a $10,000 out in either profit, quality of life, or time saved. His ability to pinpoint the opportunities in the market and recognize how my specific business and skills can seamlessly grow or transition to meet those needs is something I can't see while I am head down working. Whether it is workplace efficiency, knowing when to get out of a business that is not working, or who and when to hire and grow, his knowledge has been invaluable. Often times people start a business and try to go it alone and shoestring it, but the money invested in quality mentoring services will pay for itself in the first month and I cannot recommend anyone more highly. Thanks to Rob, I set my own hours, do what I love on my terms, and make what I need to live my dream... and it never needed to be complicated.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

After running this program and working with a community of practitioners that called this program “the best money I’ve spent on a business development hands down” we’re putting our money where area mouth is.

If after two weeks (one principle podcast, one principle Q & A and one Open Season Q & A) if you feel like this program isn’t going to bring you to where you want to be… we’ll offer a 100% money back guarantee.

 

100% GUARANTEE!
IF YOU'RE NOT FULLY SATISFIED AFTER TWO WEEKS..
YOU'LL GET YOUR MONEY BACK!

VALUE VS PRICING

PRICE IS WHAT YOU PAY,

VALUE IS WHAT YOU GET.

After we built the structure of this program we stepped back and asked, “What do we charge for this?”

We didn’t want it to be out of reach for the folks we wanted to help.

And we have a strong principle that we value our work.

We regularly consult with clients and past students on a weekly basis. Many are under a full work contract to meet a specific goal or target and we don’t charge but the hour, but rather by completing our client agreed-upon objectives (a principle we work by).

Working backwards from our contracts, our hourly fees are between $300-600 each. Taking the low end of that range, an hour and a half conversation with both of us would be $900.

For two 1.5 hour calls a month, that would be $1,800.

But instead of charging that, we’re offering you folks – the people we want to see succeed, a fraction of that price.

What do you charge for a community of like-minded ethical entrepreneurs that are looking for help and advice as much as they are willing to give advice?

What do you charge to be part of a group that is not only working together in some of the most important work on the planet but also diving into your business, looking at it from not one, but 25 different angles?

We went with our guts knowing that we were offering tangibly at least 6 times the value and felt if we were seeking an investment, we’d want a return of at least that much.

If not more.

  • Javan helped prevent me from potentially making a $50,000 mistake in a mere 15-minute phone conversation - not from sharing his own opinion on the situation but from asking the right questions, that illuminated my own needs and weak links, making the decision obvious. I am so very thankful to have access to his guiding influence when needed.

NOW OVER TO YOU…

For us, if we had the opportunity to be in this program 10 years ago when we started, we would have enrolled immediately. No questions asked.

The question you need to ask yourself is the same questions we all ask ourselves around business:

Who can help me get to where I want my business to be?

…and…

When is the right time to move forward?

As the saying goes, the best time to plant a tree is 25 years ago; the next best time is now.

And as Rob’s kids would say, “if not now, then when, papa?”

When is ever a good time to get started?

 

Now.

 

Now is the best time to start and find yourselves exactly where you want to be.

 

If this isn’t for you, thanks for reading to the end. It was an epic letter and we appreciate your reading.

 

And we also thank you for doing what you do. We wish you the very best in your endeavors.

 

If this is for you, we’ll see you soon.

Tally ho,

  • Rob has a unique ability to synthesize ideas and solutions from his wide experience in engineering, business, permaculture design and whole systems thinking. He incorporates this into his life and his teachings, and models the changes of lifestyle, community building and cooperation needed to succeed as individuals, as green businesses and as society at large. He is able to pair peoples' strengths to their passions and has a way of connecting his clients to right-livelihood opportunities that are amazing fits. His willingness to model cooperation over competition, to share his knowledge, and to use his diverse network of friends and colleagues for the betterment of the entire group is valuable and special. Rob walks his talk more than anyone I know and is skilled at opening peoples' eyes to options they never before considered possible

  • Javan's one of the people out there who is a true listener.  He listens with intention, with empathy, and with context.  Over the years he's provided me with priceless advice.  Advice that's priceless, not because it can be taken to the bank (which some of it can), but priceless because it's given me confidence in what I was doing, who I am, and where I was going.  All things that can either waste precious days on this planet, or make the most of them.  In a world where everyone wants to tell you what to do, it's rare to find someone who tells you what to do, without actually telling you, and just listening.

The Principles

We felt it worthwhile to dive a little deeper into the concept of Principles…

To understand principles, consider a chef versus a cook.

A chef can take random ingredients and make something remarkable.

A line cook – unless they have a recipe – will look dumbfounded at the ingredients. If they do attempt a dish, they’ll try to shape the ingredients into what they already know.

chef has principles they can apply to any dish.

A cook is restricted by the recipes they know.

chef-cook-spectrum2

Principles change the way you look at the world.

In fact, principles change the world every day.

Recipes force you to see the world though the recipe itself while missing details and opportunities along the way.

Ever missed the finer details of a business transaction because of something you thought to be true?

Yea… we’ve done that as well.

We were line cooks, focused on recipes for a long time.

Over the last 10 years we adopted a principles-based business approach and found that instead of looking at the recipe, we started asking:

What is the best fit, for this client, in their context, and most importantly, for me and my business?

This shift in perspective was, is, and forever will be a GAME CHANGER.

No matter the situation, we could respond instead of react in our, and our clients’ best interest.

You can imagine the result.

More clients.

More business.

More profit.

From putting out fires every day to managing the opportunities that have you saying “F**k Yes” or “Hell no.”

(PS. We swear sometimes)

(PPS. Did you hear that science has proven that people who swear are more honest?)

You can see why principles matter so much.

We are committed to making sure that the right people are in this program.

Part of this commitment is that upon registration we will ask you to complete a student intake questionnaire.

Alternatively, if you’d like to chat with one of us before registering, we’d be happy to do so. Fill out this form  & we’ll give you a call!

Testimonials
  • I was working on a mycology project and was about to invest $25,000 and I thought, ‘I need Javan!’ But I stopped and instead asked, ‘What would Javan do?’ He’d tell me to use the principles and tools I built with him. I considered the opportunity and found out it wasn’t a good fit. The money was never spent. THANK YOU.

  • Javan's curiosity, breadth of knowledge, and thoughtful perspective all combine to make him a valued advisor to everyone in the regenerative agriculture movement.

  • Javan's impact on my professional life has been critical to my success. He has a unique ability to perceive opportunities and to provide sound feedback. It's apleasure working with such a down-to-earth mentor and friend.

  • Javan helped prevent me from potentially making a $50,000 mistake in a mere 15-minute phone conversation - not from sharing his own opinion on the situation but from asking the right questions, that illuminated my own needs and weak links, making the decision obvious. I am so very thankful to have access to his guiding influence when needed.

  • The value gained for early and mid-stage entrepreneurs from this program is significant. Rob and Javan are incredibly generous with their expertise, sharing from their own failures, and providing powerful tools to leverage your business profitability now. I highly recommend this dynamic program

  • Javan's one of the people out there who is a true listener.  He listens with intention, with empathy, and with context.  Over the years he's provided me with priceless advice.  Advice that's priceless, not because it can be taken to the bank (which some of it can), but priceless because it's given me confidence in what I was doing, who I am, and where I was going.  All things that can either waste precious days on this planet, or make the most of them.  In a world where everyone wants to tell you what to do, it's rare to find someone who tells you what to do, without actually telling you, and just listening.

  • Since being engaged with Rob and Javan in this mentorship process, we have gleamed too many gems to mention them all here. One of which has been a total shift in our sales process when speaking to prospective clients. Through the new intake process we developed from this mentorship, we have now increased our design/diagnosis rates by 50% - 300% and created ease and clarity with each new client we interact with.

  • Investing in this course has been without a doubt the best investment our business had made. It has brought our team together in ways that we are just beginning to reap the benefits of, and the future looks very bright. Thank you Javan and Rob for sharing so much of yourselves!

  • This program has already been worth much more then investment I made in signing up. I know the lessons will continue to influence how I run my businesses for the rest of my life meaning that it has been invaluable to me. I wish I could have had this kind of mentorship 5 years ago.

  • The mentorship provided by both Rob and Javan has been invaluable to our growth. My recommendation for other entrepreneurs and leaders is to view your accountability partner as if you own a part of their business. Learn how their processes work who they are and what motivates them everyday. This is the chance dive into someone else's business with an all inclusive pass and be ready for them do the same! This expands your capacity to learn and build on solutions something I would never receive without this important element of our personal regeneration.
