I am so glad you are here – if you clicked to read this post, then you are curious about Masterminds. Before I give you some details, I want to tell you a quick story about my own journey with Masterminds.
I had never heard of a Mastermind until my husband spoke of them in reference to entrepreneurship. He basically described what it was with this definition:
Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A Mastermind group helps you and your Mastermind group members achieve success. -thesuccessalliance.com
Then I started to see the word all over the place and I was intrigued. Shortly thereafter Emily Jeffords launched her Mastermind for a year together between 2018-2019. I applied, crossed my fingers, and did a little secret prayer because I really wanted to be a part of it. I still don’t really understand how or why I got in, but I did and it is easily the single-most important step I took in my business to date.
It was around that time that I started to understand the importance of learning from other creatives, taking online classes, and being in community with other women. I began to invest in opportunities that would put me in contact with other people. I can say, with total confidence, that all of those choices have more than paid off. They have propelled my business forward in so many ways.
I couldn’t have done it alone.
It was during Emily’s in-person retreat that I met Bonnie when we stayed in an airbnb together. I was was floored — like mouth drop, may as well have passed out floored when she told the group that she was on track to make 7 figures that year. I didn’t even know that was possible. I had no clue. My world burst wide open. It was in that next year that Bonnie launched her own Mastermind and I was so excited to apply. When I got in, I felt like a rockstar. I went on to make some of my best friends of my adult life, one of whom I talk to almost daily and I stopped questioning a lot of ideas and started moving forward on them. The group helped me so much, they helped me to ask better questions, to listen to myself, to move forward instead of stand still and they helped me to see my own my personal “special sauce”! Basically these two groups of incredible women changed my life.
The invest continues to provide.
I believe if you are looking for clarity, connection, friendship, direction, or an ability to see your business from other perspectives that is what being in a Mastermind is all about.
