There is a Completely Different Way to Grow

that allows you, the entrepreneur, to be free to create…

We know how challenging it can be to grow your business while simultaneously running your company without enough time, money, and help. It’s brutal. Despite plenty of motivation, it is intensely frustrating, and often crushing, to experience growth, only to add a ton of extra activities and responsibilities on top of your already insanely busy schedule and then watch everything unravel when you can’t figure out how to continue hunting for new clients while keeping the one’s you have and pretending to be a part-time leader of your team, if there even is a team…

But what if there is a different way to approach growth so that you can have it all? What if the traditional model needs a fresh look? What if you and other entrepreneurs alike were free to create? We think a shift is needed for entrepreneurs to free them from “the grind” and breathe life back into their adventurous soul. To lift their spirit and use their gift of creativity – to do what they are born to do – to be disruptors, change agents, innovators of our future. We are referring to the insanely busy small business owners – where nearly every notable innovation in history has originated. We believe that amazing things can happen when this select group of forward thinkers is set free to unlock their imagination.

Nearly all entrepreneurs start off with big dreams before making payroll and paying bills and doing all the rest of the “things” takes over. While all aspects of running a business are important, “doing” is not the best use of these unique minds. Yet, sadly most are trapped in activities outside of their genius eroding their energy and passion and erasing their purpose. The traditional way of business ownership produces doers instead of creators which robs the earth of the best ideas never to be created…

In the name of Creative Freedom, we are committed to leading a movement for a new way to grow. One that allows entrepreneurs the freedom to think, to lead, to innovate, to create and solve problems differently. We want to build, in power and numbers, a Creative Legion of risk takers and thought leaders with new ideas fueled by deep passion and purpose to make the world and those in it better. We want entrepreneurs that are tired of being handcuffed to “doing” and ready to get back to “creating.” We want to develop a new definition of successful small business owners – we want Creopreneurs, the creators of the future.

Together we will be defiant against the old way of having our small business own us and free to use our imagination and bring new and different ideas to the world. Join the Creative Legion with Defiant Small Business Exclusive (DSBE) as we aggressively expand our movement by adding as many entrepreneurs willfully converting to Creopreneurs for the cause. It’s time for a new age of entrepreneurs where growth is done differently, and small business owners are free to create.

A world of Creative Freedom.

Who is DSBE For?

We want insanely busy entrepreneurs of small businesses that are looking for something different to propel them forward for something bigger than themselves. Something that will grow their business while allowing them freedom to lead, create, and innovate. We want those ready for new way to approach growth so they can get back to using their gift of creativity and imagination.

After nearly twenty-five years of grinding through creating, owning, leading, managing, operating, and producing for several small businesses while collaborating and interacting with thousands of entrepreneurs in a long list of verticals our Founder settled on a single purpose of providing a platform specifically designed for other insanely busy small business owners to grow in a different way. Not for the sake of growth, but rather for the creative freedom and all the wonderful results that come with it.

How We Are Different

Currently, there are a ton of fantastic events, groups, communities, and venues that address the needs of networking, to education, training, peer advisory, and so on… In fact, many of which are Sponsors or Affiliates of DSBE. These organizations and offerings are not competitors but rather advocates. DSBE is not to be compared to other platforms, events, associations, or organizations, we promote all that add value to the Creopreneurs in our movement and welcome them to join our cause. DSBE is a movement, an ideology, for the future of small business and more so for the freedom of entrepreneurs to create – to become Creopreneurs.

What is a DSBE Creopreneur?

A supporter of the movement toward implementing a new and different way to grow small businesses where the entrepreneur is free from doing and elevates to creating. They must be a small business owner or leader of a company with less than $40M in annual revenue and less than 200 employees that sell products or services for the B2B space. The companies can range widely in industry or vertical as well as their maturity as a business, but what must be present is a desire to continue to grow something bigger than themselves for a cause bigger than themselves.

What is Included?

A ton. And all for free! Yes, free! This is a movement, not a product or service. Our Founder became tired of the grind of small business ownership shared by millions around the globe, where the business owns you and steals years of creativity while buried in activities outside of your genius and full potential. After nearly three decades of collaboration with some of the best minds in the small business arena, a new framework has emerged that allows entrepreneurs to approach growth differently and we want every entrepreneur to know about it.

DSBE is a different platform that drives the ideology of pipeline optimization and delivers the connections, events, resources, tools, and support needed to implement the new model of small business growth. Not just any growth, but a new, different way to grow that understands the life of an entrepreneur and builds a system around them so they continue to rise as a leader and an innovator instead of being consumed by day-to-day tasks. If you are ready to grow differently, join us for the small business growth movement and bring creativity back to the entrepreneur.
