What is a Mastermind Group?

A mastermind group, at its simplest, is a meeting of two or more people who share a common purpose, where each person is committed to helping others in the group reach that common purpose through brainstorming, accountability, support, and sharing of knowledge and resources.  The term Mastermind was initially coined by Napoleon Hill in his book, Think and Grow Rich.  If you update his language, the core idea remains the same – many minds are better than one when you share a common goal and you have an experienced facilitator.  In our Mastermind Groups, we have three key objectives for group members as we work together to help you build a solid, sustainable and profitable business:

  • Conducting a Business Assessment to identify your gaps

  • Setting short-term and long-term goals and objectives for you and your business, creating your five-year plan

  • Accountability on your short-term goals.

What's unique about our Mastermind Groups?

Experienced Facilitator.  At Vandeross we are experienced business coaches and consultants. When we facilitate our Mastermind groups, we bring a combination of 20+ years of experience helping thousands of owners before they launch and/or grow their small businesses. 

Focus.  Throughout the open group discussions, we will guide the conversation and avoid non-productive conversations avoiding wasting time. We want to make sure that our time together is used to best serve you and the other members.

 

1-1 Time.  One final difference is that we spend 1-1 time with each member monthly.  In our groups, you get both group and individualized coaching, allowing for a more beneficial and customized approach.

 

Mastermind Groups are a powerful way to accelerate your small business launch with guidance from your group of like-minded business owners with a common purpose and experienced small business coaches and consultants.

How it works

Through combined mind power and guidance we will help members reach their business goals. In addition, you will have access to 1 hour of 1-on-1 personalized coaching monthly, focusing specifically on your needs.  Our goal is for each participant to establish a firm business foundation and successfully launch their company, with an eye on their 2-year horizon.  Each session they will present their challenges to the group, listen to their feedback, and set goals for the next session.  These goals become their Action Plan and keep them on track.

We will meet two times a month for two hours as a group (4 hours monthly) with up to 8 other entrepreneurs, to check in with each other, review our goals and the progress we are making toward achieving those goals. You will also have access to 1 hour of 1-on-1 personalized coaching monthly, focusing specifically on your needs. 

Participants must be willing to dedicating 5 hours per month, plus time to complete session action items, to work on your business can change you and your business forever and get things moving forward.

What is not part of the meetings:

  • Coaching - unless it’s a topic-based presentation from one member planned ahead of time.

  • Trying to generate leads or promote products or services

  • Distractions or multi-tasking of any type - Phones, TV’s, Email, Social Networks, etc.

Our commitment to you:

  • You will learn the things you don’t know, but more importantly, about the things you “didn’t know you didn’t know”. “The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.” — Phil Jackson

  • You will discover resources to help you launch your business on a solid foundation and plan out your next 2 years of operation.

  • You instantaneously grow your network exponentially. The network of everyone in your group becomes your network. As you share your problems or listen to others, people will make connections for you when you need them most.

  • An opportunity to help your company expand through cross-promotions. Brand collaborations are a great way to introduce your products to new audiences.
