ENTREPRENEURS & FOUNDERS
Being an entrepreneur can be very rewarding ... but it's often a lonely road.
As an entrepreneur you have to wear multiple hats in your company and deal with unique challenges all the time - It's not easy to build a company, especially if you do it alone.
As the leader, you need to make difficult decisions; Who should you hire? How are you going to grow? Where should you spend your money?
It can get overwhelming ... but let's be honest, you wouldn't change it for anything. At the end of the day, that's why you choose to become an entrepreneur, to solve problems.
So, why not join a group of people that share the same experiences as you?
"You don't have to build your business alone"
The Entrepreneurs & Founders Mastermind is a monthly peer-to peer mentorship group where members share advice, resources and feedback. The meetings are facilitated by experienced mentors that have helped other companies grow.
Apply now and be part of a selected group of entrepreneurs growing their business together.
SO WHY JOIN THE MASTERMIND?
Accountability and Motivation
If you are an entrepreneur you must know how tempting it is to procrastinate on things you should be doing or getting distracted with your new great ideas. Sometimes all you need is someone to hold you accountable. At the end of each meeting you will have specific actions to take, so when you come back you can share your progress.
Friendship with like-minded entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs choose to avoid the traditional path of life and as a consequence their life can often become very lonely. That's why sharing your dreams, ideas, inspiration, and challenges with like-minded people can make a huge impact on your life and business.
Grow your business through peer-to-peer mentorship
Jim Rohn once said that “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.'' This is true, especially in business. If you want to go far you must surround yourself with people that share the same principles and values to build a successful business.
Access to business resources and exercises
Once you join you will get access to the online community where entrepreneurs share resources and exercises they use to thrive in their personal & business life.
Expanding your network
If you are an entrepreneur you must know how important it is to network. There are endless possibilities to meet the right person at the right time and being part of a small mastermind group gives you access to a network of people.

Why do I need to pay for this?
We charge a monthly fee for two main reasons. One, this is NOT an informal meeting, this is a 12 month program. We want to ensure that members are committed to the mastermind group. We need members that stay accountable. Second, we want to ensure that we can keep providing QUALITY mentorship to the group.
What about Confidentiality?
Confidentiality is taken seriously. For a successful mastermind meeting, members have to know that what they say stays within the group. Therefore, every member is asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Is this a good fit for me?
What if I don’t like it or if it is not a good fit for me after I pay?
If the mastermind is not a good fit for you after the third meeting, we will give 100% of your money back.
What happens if I can't make it to a meeting?
If you missed a meeting, you can get a 20 minute call with your facilitator and you can ask questions on the secret Facebook Group with your peers. You might not get the full 3 hours discussion from the group, but you can get a one-on-one call with your facilitator.
What happens if I need to cancel my membership in the middle of the program?
Depending on the time you have left, we will charge a $35 dollar fee for each month remaining in the 12 month program.
