Even Busy People Feel Loneliness

Create & collaborate with other established and growth-focused business owners from around the world

Occupational loneliness is a very real impact on entrepreneurs, business owners and change makers – even if they are working in busy office. It’s the feeling that no one quite understands the opportunities and obstacles you are facing and that you have no one to plot and plan with.

We started CATALYST as a business accelerator with the idea of a bustling coffee shop – where you can work on your own and with others, feeling the energy of people working on projects and passions around you. It’s growing into this incredible community of business owners building incredible change and creativity in the world, working together with a shared focus of support and success. Each member still has access to personalized coaching, mentoring and idea curation with our growing team of experts as well.

Create the Rules CATALYST combines the accountability and productivity of work sprints with friends in a co-working space, bouncing ideas off of each other and expanding thoughts, goals and successes beyond the first iteration.

Here we are normalizing nourishing the business owner along with the business so we reduce fatigue, reduce mental health struggles and build a new nurturing economy.

This community is our commitment to business owners.

“Tremendous Value”

I regularly tell Marissa, she is the only person from whom I don’t mind being marketed. She’s incredibly good at what she does, and that’s because the passion, ethics, and care are all there. Even so, I honestly wasn’t expecting the tremendous value I got, right out of the gate, when joining this program. Especially at such a great price. It’s just full of innovative ways to support people and I feel welcomed and like I’m in the best hands.

Marcy Evans, Sancti

“Incredible Amount of Value”

In my short time in Create the Rules, I have gotten an incredible amount of value and I haven’t even tapped into all of the resources fully yet! Marissa is absolutely brilliant, leads with integrity and the diverse community has been super supportive with feedback on decisions that I needed to Soundboard!

“Fantastic way to stay focused and be productive”

I just joined and so glad I did! I already have great insights into next year’s planning as well as partnership types I hadn’t considered before. The co-working is a fantastic way to stay focused and be productive. I already feel I’ve gotten more than the value I paid, and I’ve only taken advantage of a fraction of the resources.

Kimberly Robb Baker, Writer

“Truly a Life Giving Community”

Before joining, I was struggling to sell something I fell out of love with and spinning countless offers without much impact. Now, I have the clarity and confidence to build out new offers that are sustainable while also doing work I love! The numbers have also been really something I haven’t been great at so the profit plan has given me so much clarity. I’m also obsessed with the co-working calls. Anytime I need inspiration or want to chat I can join! It’s truly a life giving community!

Melody Johnson, Customer Success Consultant

The Profit Plan

Six years ago, I created a revolutionary way to build a business plan – one that nourished the business owner while fuelling a thriving, resilient, prosperous business. The idea is that we would not only help business owners to fall in love with their products & services, but invest in themselves, their team and their community with their pricing strategies, support systems and marketing plans.

Now we are building systems of support with daily live coaching and mentoring around the framework PLUS quarterly and annual profit planning.

The Profit Plan is how I build my business now.

I ran away from my numbers for a long time because I wasn’t making a lot of money in my business.

It took looking at my numbers to understand how to make money in my business

Tiana Dodson, Body Liberation Coach & Facilitator

I have a focus on where my business is going next.

Now that I have the Accelerator, I am complete. I don’t need any other programs or courses. I see other things out there that look cool but I am no longer tempted to keep taking more courses because the Accelerator has everything I need. I have a strategy and focus on where my business is going next.

Alice Miriam, Challenge & Summit Expert

Frequently Asked Questions

The Live components will be on Go Brunch. You don’t have to download anything and you can access it on desktop or mobile. Desktop gives you the best performance but it’s not necessary if you’re mostly just listening in or co-working. The Online Community is hosted by Circle. You can download the Circle Community App on iPhone to get access but it’s completely accessible on desktop without having to install anything. Some courses are hosted in Simplero for now.

Make sure you talk to us – because if there is something we can change and implement, we want to know! But if it’s not working for you – no worries, cancel anytime. There are no refunds after payment but you can cancel within Simplero and no further payments will be taken from your account as long as you cancel before your payment date.

Business owners who know an intimate community will help them accelerate their business faster. We are in this to nourish and nurture business owners so we are looking for team builders and culture makers. We cover products and services, in person and online businesses because we focus on the tools and tactics all businesses can use to accelerate their growth. We are looking for topic experts who also want to serve the community by hosting co-working and office hour sessions too.

Let’s just be blunt – business owners face a host of prejudices, inequities and injustices around the globe. We know these topics need to be looked at, worked on and solutions created. We ask community members to remember we are not all experiencing the same thing and to approach each topic with the questions “What would make this even better?” and that does not include tone policing, white washing or erasing of experiences.

If we are in this together, we are in this together and that includes using our businesses, our ideas and our wealth to create equity. If members of the community are unable to contribute to an inclusive community, they will be asked to leave and refunds will be on the sole discretion of the business to administer.

When you’re just starting out or rebuilding, it’s important that you keep money in your business so you can buy more stock, hire support and yeah – pay yourself. If the Accelerator is a financial stretch for you right now but you need support, send us an email at hello@createtherules.com. Our funding model allows us to create seats for people who will intentionally help us build this community while building their own business. We offer scholarships, work share and Pay it Backward models of accessing the community. Let’s chat.

No. We go into it in more detail here.

This is really for businesses who are creating incredible moves in their business already and are looking to grow and scale their already successful business.

However, we know that sometimes we get into financial constraints and with a little support we can make our business profitable. We have work exchange payment plans, pay-it-backwards and full scholarships. If you need this – email us at hello@createtherules.com and let’s work something out.

Is CATALYST for New Business Owners?

For the most part, we are working with business owners who have been in business for 3+ years.

Sometimes what we are discussing can be a bit overwhelming for new business owners.

We are working on a First Year in Business Cohort – if you’re interested in joining when we launch that – sign up here.
