Feature Presentation: 


Having Strategic Relationships That Add Value and Safety

What Is A Mastermind?

  • 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.
  • Participants challenge each other to set powerful goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
  • The group requires commitment, confidentiality, willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion.
  • Mastermind group members act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates, and supportive colleagues.
  • The concept of the “mastermind alliance” was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill in his timeless classic, “Think And Grow Rich,” though mastermind groups have been around since the beginning of time.
  • Even Benjamin Franklin belonged to such a group, which he called a Junto.

What A Mastermind is NOT

  • It’s not a class.
  • It’s not group coaching.
  • It’s not a networking group.

The Benefits of Belonging to a Mastermind Group

  • Your mastermind partners give you feedback, help you brainstorm new possibilities.
  • The mastermind provides accountability structures that keep you focused and on track.
  • You create a community of supportive colleagues who brainstorm together to move the members to new heights.
  • You’ll gain tremendous insights which improve your business and personal life.
  • Your mastermind group is like having a objective board of directors, a success team, and a peer advisory group, all rolled into one.

The Strategic Influencers Mastermind

 What are we looking for?

  • You have a burning desire to elevate your life and leadership.
  • You’re working full time on your business or are close to making that move.

  • You are committed to adding value to others in the group
  • You are able to commit to a weekly online mastermind group meeting.
  • You are willing and able to commit to attending 2-3 “in-person” meetings each calendar year.
  • You are able and willing to invest financially in your mastermind membership

(More information and guidelines will be provided to you in your personal interview)

Weekly (Online) Meetings

Our primary, and most consistent method for meeting is online. The wonderful thing about this is that you can be anywhere you want as long as you have a quality internet connection. Your geographical location is not important, but your presence on the video conference is.

Each week we meet on the same day and at the same time. We use a well-respected and dependable service called ZOOM.

In-Person Intensives

We will conduct 3 in-person meetings each calendar year. The format of these will vary from meeting to meeting, however, they are a very different experience than our weekly calls.

Each LIVE meeting will consist of 2 days of training, processes, and high level mastermind exercises designed to generate a 10X outcome in your life, business, ministry, or mission. Each member will have extensive “hotseat” time, and will leave the meeting with a strategy and actionable plan.

My Experience in Masterminds

For the last several years I have participated in TWO mastermind groups. I cannot express the impact these have had on my life, my business, and my relationships.

  • I have experienced a significant pivot in my personal leadership.
  • My business has transitioned to a broader reaching model, and is impacting 30X the nunber of people each month.
  • I have built relationships and been granted access to mentors and leaders in my field of work.
  • My ROI has easily exceeded 10X my personal investment in this process.

This is not a marketing ploy to get people into a course. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

  • There is an application and interview process.
  • Not everyone will be accepted.

We look forward to having you join us on the NEXT LEVEL!

Influencer’s Challenge:

2017 is done, and you cannot go back and recapture its opportunities.

You can, however, make a decision TODAY that you will take action, make a commitment, and go all in for 2018.

Nothing Changes Until Something Changes.

Yesterday’s results tend to repeat themselves until we decide that yesterday’s results are no longer good enough.
