In a nutshell, “A mastermind group is designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others. They lean on each other, give advice, share connections and do business with each other when appropriate.” – via Forbes
This intimate mastermind (8 people max) will have a “hot seat” format. Each session two members will have the opportunity to sit on the “hot seat” in order to get an important question answered or challenge addressed. By using the collective brain power of all the members along with the 1,000s of experiences each member brings with them, we will have an intense, productive brainstorming session in order to help the hot seat participant solve their problem or challenge.
Each mastermind session will be 60 minutes long and include:
- Motivation / personal reflection / self-care / intention
- “Circle Time” – each person will have time to share with a group a win and goal
- (2) 15-minute “Hot Seat” sessions
- Affirmations and accountability
High five! That is 100% fine! It means that you want to take the next step and make an investment in yourself and your business. By focusing on growing your business and seeking support is incredible and puts you ahead of the game.
If you have been in a mastermind (whether it was peer-led or paid), that’s wonderful too and we welcome your knowledge and experience into the group.
We know that there are times where you absolutely cannot make it (like if you’re in the middle of giving birth or have a meeting with Oprah); however, if you don’t think you can commit to 90% of the time, then this is not a fit for you. Each member is extremely important and you will also miss out on tremendous value if you do not show up.
If you absolutely need to miss a call, then you are still asked to review the recorded session and provide feedback to the hot seat member. If you are regularly absent, then you might be asked to leave the group.
This is not an industry specific mastermind for the reason of diversity. So much can be learned from the challenges, systems and processes of other industries. However, most of the women have businesses that fall into the “client-service based” industries. For example, creative entrepreneurs (photographers, event planners, brand/web designers, etc…), small business owners (brick and mortar shops) and professionals (financial, real estate, etc…).
So if you don’t like talking to people (a.k.a. your customers, clients and community) and prefer to hide behind a computer and remain online, this might not be a good fit for you.
Also, as a fellow a mom (and pregnant) and I GET YOU. I’m in your shoes too! A lot of the challenges that will come up in the group we all face and we encounter together. If you are not a mom, but want to be one soon or are expecting this is still for you! It might even help prep you for what’s to come in your life and business. We’re all busy women and moms trying to juggle it all! This is the perfect space for you to learn from each other and see how others face the challenges of limited time and other obligations distracting us from our business.
I’m not kidding, this is a topic that comes up A LOT and OFTEN with my mom clients. I completely understand that this is sometimes more than just a business decision, this is a “family” (aka husband) decision regarding the investment (both in dollars / time / childcare / etc…).
If this is an issue that is coming up for you, please feel free to chat with me directly. I welcome the husband / business partner / significant other / etc… to come observe one of the sessions (especially your hot seat session) so that they can get a good idea of what amazing things you’re doing to better your business and family!
Afterwards, I promise they will be so impressed and proud of you!!!
In a Mastermind, I am the facilitator, organizer and partial educator, but I am not the only “expert” or “teacher” in the group. While I will obviously add in my input and value and guide the conversations, I am not a “talking-head” teaching or leading the conversation 100% of the time. When you ask a question or face a challenge, it’s the collective effort of the group to help you brainstorm and get answers vs. only me. The Mastermind is a smaller curated group of individuals who are all in similar stages of their business.
In a group coaching program, I am the coach, the leader, the educator, and the person choosing topics and guiding discussions. The group will learn and be led by my methods, strategies and course work. Think of it more like working with me 1-on-1, but sharing time with others. Group coaching also takes place in a larger group setting.

Do you know how many times I hear “I don’t have enough time!” I know “time” is a hot subject among moms, so my goal is to help you use your time efficiently and effectively to help produce results in your business. The thing I dislike the most is busy work!!!
Besides the 60-minute mastermind calls, you will have some homework to prep for each session. In order to maximize the 60 minutes we want to make sure you come prepared!
This might include reviewing the hot seat participant’s problem / issue / challenge and coming up with a couple solutions you can present, outline your goals / projects for the week, or even writing your hot seat topic out. The time is well spent to help you further your business!
