The first Make It Happen Mastermind was a success!
After 15+ years of leading and facilitating my own mastermind groups, I decided to formally offer a group coaching mastermind as a service for entrepreneurs, online businesses, service providers, and thought leaders. As an experiment, I launched the first cohort of the Make It Happen Mastermind in Q4 2018, from September 15 – December 15, and decided I would do it again in 2019 if it was a success.
Based on the testimonials below, I think it was successful.
“My business has blossomed over the last three months. I’ve gotten a lot of help with strategy and organization, and everything that seemed to be impossible on my own now feels possible because of this network. It’s not an expensive investment of time or money, given what you get at the end of 3 months working with other business owners helping you work on your challenges.” – Kathleen Celmins, MIHM 2018 Alumni
“Because of joining the Make It Happen Mastermind, I’ve had some really great changes. I’m a lot more focused, and that’s been super important for me, because I tend to work on too many things at one time. Making me focus and drive to one thing has been very helpful and successful.” – Jonathan Logan, 2018 MIHM Alumni
“I was a little reluctant to join when I first started, because I have a coach, and I wasn’t quite sure I needed any more support, but I’m glad I did. One of my biggest challenges is feeling like I can accomplish everything by myself. I’m a one-man-show, it’s me, myself, and I, and a bunch of freelancers, trying to make things happen. Having a cool group of people to kick ideas off of has been profound for me. My business was already doing really good, but I really look forward to this meeting every week and checking in and having regular accountability. It’s been a really positive experience for me and my business. I’m so glad I joined, and it’s been a lot of fun.” – Michael Riscica, MIHM 2018 Alumni
Q: ) How often does the Mastermind meet?
A: ) Once a week for 60 minutes a group of 4-5 people (including us) will meet in a group call, and you and I will meet again for 30-minutes, just the two of us. We do this for 12 weeks.
Q: ) What time are the group masterminds?
A: ) The time depends on the preference of the group, and can be selected from one of the following three recommended slots:
- Monday at 4 pm Pacific time (Tuesday at 1pm NZ time)
- Wednesday at 1 pm Pacific time (Thursday at 10am NZ time)
- Friday at 12 pm Pacific time (Saturday at 9 am NZ time)
Alternative times are available, depending on the group preferences.
We start meeting the week of January 15th, and finish the week of April 15th.
Q: ) How many people are in each Mastermind group?
A: ) Every Mastermind group will be capped at 4 participants, plus myself as the host. I have space for up to 3 weekly cohorts, and only enough time for 6 hours of 1-on-1 coaching throughout the week, so there are only 12 spots available for this quarter. After 12 people enroll, it’s full until later this year.
Q: ) What happens during the 1-on-1 coaching calls?
A: ) I will be your own personal webmaster and digital strategy consultant, for 30 minutes per week. We can review your goals for the quarter, and I can keep you accountable for your progress. More importantly, I can troubleshoot issues on your website, I can help you revise your copywriting or CSS, I can help you review and compare different platforms you are considering, I can train you on how to use your website, or I can make specific changes for you, while you watch me on a screenshare.
Q: ) What happens during the mastermind calls?
A: ) Each mastermind call follows a very structured agenda. After reading the opening (the same one Andrew Carnegie used to open his mastermind sessions) a group of 4 people will share:
Andrew Carnegie’s Mastermind Opening
Every session begins with the same opening read by Andrew Carnegie at the start of his own Mastermind meetings, as chronicled by Napoleon Hill in his book “Think And Grow Rich.” Listen to the opening of Andrew Carnegie’s mastermind below:
“Mastermind Groups are the single most effective way to regularly surround yourself with remarkable people.”
"Working from home does not mean that you have to be alone."
