Who We Are

Journey + Reintroduction.

Settling into a business direction can produce a multitude of emotions- constricting, anxious, limiting…and this is just to name some of the feelings. We know because after 21 years in business, We’ve finally have found our “home” if you will. And the journey has been amazing to get here!

We’ve experienced business and businesses and all the many facets always kept our scope, our “what” open- exploring deeper to uncover in it’s fullness, what we offer- And it always came back to Business Development + Strategic Messaging.

As a Business Development + Strategic Messaging Firm, we curate messages with the intent to connect with (y)our customer for an ROI-driven business experience. You're Who, they're Why , and Culturesphere is How. Sense + Connect = Resonate.

What We Do

Pivot makes Perfect.

…”but you do websites…” Yes, we do…but it ultimately comes down to “Who” you are connecting with and “What” is our message to them?

…“they do sales” We don’t “sale” anything; We listen to where you want to go and show you how to use every ingredient in your business kitchen to get there, while maximizing growth and partnerships along the way- even connecting you to new ones!

…”I think their a technology company/guy…” Kinda, so long as your tech allows you to engage your customers in a manner that increases responsiveness/connectivity and increase your business because of speed to market.

… “I think they do staffing…” You’re right! We recommend people and companies that can fill your gaps to stabilize your business to make you more profitable.

… “they do branding…” I guess…we really just listen to you and create messaging to connect to your customer- if that’s what you mean by branding, you got us!

It was all of these very flattering labels and descriptions of how our business impacted our customers that honestly kept us from “settling down” but in actuality, it locked us in.

We’re happy to say that while it is true that "Yes!", we do all of these things listed above- it’s all in the name of Business Development + Strategic Messaging!

If you are looking to make an impact and grow your business strategically, connect with Culturesphere today!

  • It is rare you come across a business partner like John. As his client, he approached our business like it was his own. He took the time necessary to understand our mission, vision and values, asking all the right questions and challenging our answers. It was an enlightening experience welcoming him into our company, as he brought with him assistance above and beyond what we expected. I was particularly impressed with John's persistence, and motivation to get the job done the right way. He is not a stranger to customer service, and worked tirelessly to make sure our needs were satisfied. Any business owner looking to hire new talent should trust John to do his research, find the best candidate, and follow up to ensure a smooth and successful hiring process.

  • Working with John Palmer and his Culturesphere Process has been nothing short of remarkable! When I engaged John, I shared with him details about my company, processes, clientele and other information. The way he presented me to ME left me in awe! As he oftentimes says or will he say "all I did was reposition you". He did more than that...thru his expertise, partnerships and network, he invested into me and EPIC Property Preservation. His willingness to help is second to none hands down. At any moment, I can expect a quick check in call, a referral or a good laugh to progress thru the business day. I read thru John's reviews and got the sense that he just loves his business...I was partially correct. He also loves your business! Almost as if it is/was his own. And to me, that's the kind of consultant relationship I didn't know I needed that I now know that I need. It never ceases to amaze me the depth of his understanding and creative nature to solve and resolve issues, personal and business. Anyone looking to "pivot" as he would say, I would 100% recommend that you consider John and his Culturesphere process. It has been worth every dollar I've invested! I trust John and you can trust him too. -Sharon Stephens
