Evolving Path

The Evolving Path

The Evolving Path is designed for a more seasoned woman entrepreneur who wants to grow her business in a more sustainable way, beyond herself. Our approach focuses on Ellivate’s four core principles: Self, Connection, Harmonious Systems and Prosperity.

The Evolving Path is designed for the woman entrepreneur who:

  • Has established a stable business with a solid infrastructure and recurring revenue that generates income for her.
  • Wants to expand her business in a more sustainable way that requires less of her direct involvement.
  • May be making investments to scale her business (and wondering how to fund these investments).
  • May want to level up on her technology and processes.
  • May be ready to make a significant pivot in her business.
  • May be building a team and creating a company culture.
  • May be a solopreneur seeking the support she needs to level up.
  • May want to create a legal structure that provides an exit strategy (including estate planning).

Women on the Evolving Path receive:

  • An annual and quarterly visioning and strategic planning process to help you align your business with Ellivate’s four core principles
  • Guidance from the collective wisdom of Ellivate’s expert members and other experts outside of Ellivate
  • Opportunities to practically apply what you’re learning to your business and move it forward in a tangible way
  • Connection with other women through intimate Collaborative Circles so you can tackle your challenges together, in a safe and supportive environment
  • A year-end gathering in December to celebrate your learning and progress throughout the year

  • Monthly connection. A virtual, 1-hour member meet-up each month for all Ellivate women to connect with one another and share celebrations and challenges.
  • Support in making social change. Ellivate Aware: In Practice, where we meet once a month to explore how we can integrate what we’re learning about social justice into our day-to-day lives and support one another in making change.

  • Access to our private online community, where you can connect with other members, ask questions and share resources.

All this, for only $159/month!!*

“A few years into my entrepreneurial journey, I learned that I did not want be on this path alone. I wanted to surround myself with women leaders and courageous trailblazers who would challenge me, inspire me and, most of all, support me as I reached new heights on my own development journey. This is exactly what Ellivate Alliance is – an aligned and mission-driven community of women that makes it the most single-most significant professional organization I have ever invested in (and I’ve been a member of many professional organizations over the past 2 decades!). As one of our founding members, what inspires me most about Ellivate Alliance is the continued courage we demonstrate to reinvent and redesign this community based on what our entrepreneurial women need most. Ellivate is a beautiful example of what true entrepreneurship is – we are each creating our own unique path to prosperity.”

– Mariette Martinez, Founder of Master Your Books

“Joining Ellivate has made all the difference in the world to me and my business! Prior to joining Ellivate, I was floundering and unfocused, lonely and uninspired. Ellivate has provided me with focus, direction and above all, the support I needed to make Exec Wranglers successful. I have never before met a group of women who are so willing and able to unconditionally lift one another up – it inspires me on a daily basis! I love that I can just show up, even when I’m not feeling my best – not only will I feel supported, I will walk away feeling better than before.”

 Stephanie Loayza, Founder of Exec Wranglers

“As a solo entrepreneur, it can feel like you are on an island by yourself. There is no one beside you to bounce an idea off of, ask a question of, or delegate to. I found Ellivate a month after I started my business, and it changed everything. Ellivate is helping me build my business from the ground up. I was able to learn, discover, and implement ideas around my purpose and vision, branding and marketing, sales and technology. It gives me a safe space to be my authentic self and receive support on my life journey.”

 Jaclyn Badeau, CPA, CGMA, MBA, Founder of Badeau Consulting

Our Q4 Infusion Session on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30 (1-4pm Central)

Q4: Prosperity

Prosperity flows from the inside out when the previous three principles align. Gain clarity on your financial goals and identify where you can invest your resources more wisely to create more value and abundance for all.

September 29, 2022 Live Learning Agenda

1:00 – 1:10      Welcome and overview (Sarah Elliott)

1:10 – 2:10      Becoming the Magnet (Ingrid Edstrom) – So often in our businesses, we get so focused on creating systems and processes to do the things that we think we “should” do based upon the dominant beliefs of society, we don’t stop to ask ourselves whether those things are what we really WANT. For so many people, financial goals are based in keeping up with the Joneses, rather than rooted in deeper connection with our families, our communities and our planet as a whole. We will focus on cultivating a deeper feeling of connection with the abundance within and all around us and gaining a better understanding of what we really want to create and why. Then, we will dive into how we can focus these integral desires to attract the abundance and prosperity we wish to create. We will do this by:

  • Taking a deeper look at our personal “zones of genius” and working to prioritize time spent in that zone.
  • Delving into the positive impact that our genius can have in our relationships and the world around us.
  • Using guided focus techniques to “become the magnet” for the opportunities we are seeking.

2:10 – 3:00      Building Prosperity through Profits (Tricia Taitt) – People determine prosperity in many ways.  Tricia determines prosperity in terms of being able to pay herself a decent salary, save for retirement, give back to her community, go on vacation for two weeks and pay her people their worth. How do you define financial prosperity? How can you achieve financial prosperity? In this session, you will learn about Tricia’s six-step P.R.O.F.I.T. Method (TM) and how clients have achieved prosperity through increasing profits. Together, we will take the first step and walk through the Pay Yourself More (TM) calculator. To prepare for this session, bring a copy of your income statement by month for the past 6-12 months.
