Hello friends and colleagues,
Thanks for your interest in attending my hosted mastermind for Q3 2016.
If you are like me, you are READY to take your business or business idea to NEW HEIGHTS very quickly. If you’ve never done a mastermind before, you will be amazed at the kind of growth you can achieve through the expertise and accountability of other like-minded individuals.
Together as a group, we WILL dramatically transform our businesses in the coming quarter! Trust me when I say, you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to connect with others and find the resources you need to take your e-commerce game to the next level!
This mastermind round will have a specific focus on e-commerce companies based in North Carolina. The membership dues are very affordable ($35 for three months). Just make sure that you meet the following requirements before applying:
You must operate or plan on operating an e-commerce business: at least a significant portion of your sales must be generated online. Some of the topics we will cover involve SEO, social media marketing and outreach, email list building, website conversion optimization, etc. For everyone’s benefit, you should be able to contribute advice to and receive advice from the other group members on these and similar subjects.
You must be based out of North Carolina: I want to keep things local in the event some group members would like to meet in person outside of the mastermind meetings.
You must have a pre-existing idea for your business: if you are starting from scratch, it is not required to be established in your market or even have a live and functioning website for your business. But you MUST have a solid idea of what you would like to do and a commitment for trying it out for at least three months. This mastermind will require weekly actionable commitment from all participants and it would not be fair to the group to finally start taking action two months down the line. This mastermind is predicated on concrete visions for explosive short term growth.
You must be able to set and commit to a challenging and growth-focused three month goal: this may mean setting a monthly sales target that you would like to reach. This may mean building a team so you can spend less time doing and more time managing. This may mean getting a growth in engagement with social media. Business legend Peter Drucker once said, “what gets measured gets managed,” so we will be setting lofty goals that are specific and can be measured. Your goal must be challenging and quantifiable. At the end of the mastermind, you (and perhaps we) should have no question whether or not your goal was reached. This goal will be set before our first meeting.
You must be transparent: you must be willing to state the facts. You must be able to pass “The Shark Tank Test” (you can tell us your current monthly revenue, sales, margins, etc.). The only way we can help is if we also understand what’s going on.
You must be willing to give and receive RESPECTFUL criticism and advice: remember, if we all didn’t need to change something, there would be no need for this group! All of us will grow by re-evaluation, changing course, and taking action. Now for the single greatest thing about joining this mastermind: you will find AT LEAST one person in the group who will have a skill, experience, or piece of advice that will allow you to get better and help reach your goal. Likewise, that piece of knowledge that you’ve discounted as “common sense” will greatly benefit AT LEAST one other person in the group. This group is all about helping and getting help, but we will do this respectfully and there will be a zero tolerance policy for belittling or talking down to others.
You must be willing to make a serious time commitment: this will be a three month sprint that starts in early July and ends in late September. You must be committed for this entire time period and you must attend every weekly meeting possible. You must attend 10 out of the 12 meetings or you will be excused from the group. Our group will meet once a week for 1 hour to 1.5 hours (depending on size) at a time that works best for the entire group (more about this below). This meeting will happen 12 times over the course of the mastermind.
You must have access to a computer with web camera capabilities: even though everyone will be in NC, we will meet remotely through Google Hangouts for convenience and the ability to record and review the video meetings throughout the week.
You must have a Google account: because meetings will be held in Google Hangouts and weekly homework for the mastermind will be recorded in Google Sheets, you must have a working Google account.
You have just reviewed all of the requirements for this mastermind. Still here and interested in making extreme leaps and bounds in Q3 2016? Apply by taking the following steps below.
IF YOU ARE READING THIS, WE HAVE RUN OUT OF ROOM FOR THIS MASTERMIND.
Please keep in mind that there is EXTREMELY LIMITED SPACE for this group and I will close applications to join after only 4 other members join (or July 1, whichever event occurs first).
Fill out this form to tell me about you and your business.
That’s all it takes. After following the steps above, check your email in the coming days for actionable items, meeting times, and other pertinent information.
Can’t wait to radically grow my business alongside you!
