Back in September, I started my first mastermind coaching group. For me, it was an experiment. Will people get something out of this? Will they like the format? Will they feel supported? Will they learn how to grow their business? Spoiler alert: the answer is a resounding YES!
Today on the podcast, I’m talking about the mastermind coaching group, how it works, why it works so well, and the transformative power it can have in your business and in your life – seriously!
How does mastermind group coaching work?
- I hand-pick 5-6 like-minded entrepreneurs.
- You meet every other week via Zoom online video chat.
- Each person in the group gets time to check in and ask questions.
- You get to share your highs and lows since the last meeting – what’s working, what’s not, what are you struggling with?
- You can ask the group for help, support, feedback, ideas, brainstorming, resources, etc.
- You set commitments – actionable, powerful goals for next meeting. What are you going to accomplish in the next two weeks?
- Each subsequent meeting we start with a follow-up – did you reach your goals? Yes or no? What can we do to help support you?
- Between meetings, we have our own Slack channel – a private communication system that keeps us very organized and all on the same page.
The transformative power of a mastermind coaching group
You are held accountable by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who all have your best interest in mind. The group will help you set big powerful goals and then you are held accountable for getting them done. There’s a power and an energy in the group that makes you want to show up and do what you say you’re going to do! When it’s just you it’s easy to let yourself off the hook, take the easy way out, or even quit (gasp!). But when the group is counting on you, you won’t let them down!
Ask questions and learn
It’s pretty frustrating as an entrepreneur to do everything yourself. With the group, you can ask questions, learn from the experience of others, and tap into their areas of expertise. As entrepreneurs we think we can do it all, but be honest – you’re not an expert at everything! There are other people who are really good at taking photos, or writing, or social media, or goal-setting, or organization – you get to learn from them!
Get honest, helpful feedback
Have you ever asked your spouse or good friend what they thought of your idea? Do they just say – that’s great, honey!
Wouldn’t it be great to get real feedback from other entrepreneurs who have your best interest in mind – but aren’t too close to you
They can be honest and give constructive criticism without being afraid to hurt your feelings – because they don’t have to live with you!
Get access to a branding, marketing, business strategy, and mindset expert
I have years and years of experience helping solo entrepreneurs build successful, profitable businesses. In the mastermind groups, I offer expert advice, guidance, resources, help reaching your goals. I’m here to help guide you in the right direction – whatever that looks like for you!
Feel supported and understood
There’s a lot of power in being able to share your ideas and have them heard! You’ll be part of a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who get you, who know where you’re coming from, who know what’s it like to do what you do. They will support you, lift you up, and make you feel heard and understood. There’s an old African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
Confidence is a game-changer for every entrepreneur I’ve ever worked with. As an entrepreneur, you have to believe in yourself. You have to wake up every day and have the confidence that you can do this. A Lack of belief in yourself can be so detrimental to your success! It’s really one of the keys to being a successful entrepreneur. I’ve seen business owners go from scared to death to brimming with confidence, all because they felt supported and guided. You get that from the group.
Your whole attitude and outlook on life will change
It may seem bold to say, but I truly believe that when you get laser-focused on your goals, feel supported, start seeing real growth in your business, get super confident in who you are as an entrepreneur, your whole attitude changes! You become more positive, more optimistic, and your whole life looks better. If you believe in yourself and you are always brimming with confidence and positivity, what do you think will happen to your business? Your relationships, your overall success in life? You become incredibly attractive. People are naturally drawn to positive, confident people. The bottom line is this: Mindset is everything! The right mindset will enable you to reach those big goals and live the life of your dreams.
Grow your business
At the end of the day, this is what you want from a coaching program, right? You want to see progress in your business, you want to see tangible results. Like everything in this world, you get out of it what you put into it, but I have seen some pretty amazing results from my coaching clients. I’ve seen sales numbers go from $0/mo to $5k/mo in the first year of business, or $8k/mo to $17k/mo in six months. I’ve seen non-profits double their annual donations. I’ve had clients build huge email lists and create popular podcasts. I’ve helped clients start with an idea and now they have a brick-and-mortar store. Sometimes just getting started is the hardest thing to do! And for some entrepreneurs, success means just getting something off the ground.
My challenge for you
I want you to get uncomfortable in 2019. I want to challenge you to do something BIG to grow your business next year. The only time you grow is when you get uncomfortable – you can’t grow by staying in your small zone of comfort.
I want you to take action. Don’t over think it, don’t put it off until later, take action today and start building something BIG!
Experience for yourself the transformative power of mastermind group coaching.
This is not for people looking for a quick fix. It’s not for people who want to go fast. It’s for people who want to go far.
Start 2019 with a whole new outlook and attitude.
Start 2019 by getting laser-focused on your goals and dreams and take action to make them happen.
Start 2019 with a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who are there to help you, support you, and who are invested in your success.
There’s a real transformative power in the group. There’s really nothing quite like being in a group of people who are working really hard together, who support each other, lift each other up, and helping each other reach their goals. There’s a palpable energy that you can feel.
It’s truly amazing.
