How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for you

How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for you

How to indicate that a mastermind is NOT for youHow do you know when a mastermind is NOT the right thing for you?

The worst thing you can do for yourself, your business and the mastermind group, you’re looking to join, is to enroll and then realize it was the wrong move for you and your business.

 

Masterminds are not a quick magic fix/magic bullet:

Masterminds are not silver bullets (and nothing in life or business is). So if you’re joining a mastermind thinking that it will magically fix everything in your business overnight and turn you into a massive success, don’t bother.

Masterminds work well because it helps people to show up consistently, keep them focused, ups their accountability, and provides them with concrete feedback that will cut down on the time it does take to achieve goals. But you still have to do the work. Which brings us to the next point…

 

You get out of a mastermind what you put into it:

Like anything in life: you get what you put in. If you are not ready to show up prepared with specific goals and takeaways that you want to get out of your membership or out of every meeting. Then a mastermind is not the place for you. Masterminds are about you showing up contributing to the group as well as asking for support. In the four years that I’ve been running masterminds, the people who got the most results from the program were those who made the mastermind meetings a priority. They showed up ready to engage and receive every single time.

 

What are your business objectives?

Be specific. What are the goals of your business? What do you want to achieve? Make sure that your goals and that of the mastermind match up. And be sure that you look for a group that has a specific focus, beyond accountability and business growth.

In my experience when you simply join a mastermind that promises vague objectives you’ll end up with less focus, structure and vague results. (Trust me on this one – I’ve been in masterminds like this and I’m also sorry to say that I learned this lesson the hard way when putting my own groups together in my earlier years of running masterminds.)

That’s why the Savvy Business Masterminds today have clear objectives with a defined mission: The Savvy Business Masterminds is a network of ambitious entrepreneurs whose mission is to grow their companies, while transforming to savvy CEOs, working with more ease and intention. In our community we heavily focus on helping you to stop overworking, making more money – working less.

 

Know how you learn best:

If you know that you like collaboration, contribution, connecting and receiving feedback in a group format then masterminds are the perfect place for you to be. And you don’t have to be an extrovert to thrive in a mastermind (I’m an introvert and love being challenged by the group to be more visible and lean in.)

If group things are not for you and you don’t enjoy group settings then I’d recommend that you look into hiring a business coach to work with you privately.

You don’t vibe with or respect the moderator:

What you’ll get out of the mastermind heavily depends on the moderator and their ability to put a great group together. Therefore, it goes without saying that it’s very important that you like and respect the organizer/moderator of the mastermind group. On this one, it’s very important to trust your gut. If you don’t vibe with them do not join the mastermind group.

 

Finally: 

Masterminds hold amazing potential to help you expand your business and your network but in order for you to reap all the benefits, you have to make sure that it’s the right fit for how you work and also be prepared to show up fully present and do the work!

{Podcast} Overcoming your resistance to expansion

{Podcast} Overcoming your resistance to expansion

A lot of my private and mastermind clients come to me because they are ready to scale and expand their business but may not be clear on how or where to go next. As a result of this lack of clarity, they often get overwhelmed by the responsibilities and added workload that comes with expansion. This causes a lot of resistance and fear and ultimately keeps business owners from taking their businesses to the next level and losing their passion for business.

But what if they were coming at expansion all wrong?

In today’s podcast episode of The Savvy Business Show, we help you to shift your perspective and come at expansion with a whole new angle and less resistance!

Here’s Why Forbes Says You Must Join A Mastermind

“Having people around to call on when you need it is one of the soundest investments you can make.” I couldn’t agree more with Forbes Magazine on this. If you look at the most successful people in business, you’ll notice that none of them got there alone. They leveraged the crap out of their networks and connections, invest in support, created buy-in from others, and then they achieved massive success. Click here to read the entire article.

Choosing a mastermind:

There are many mastermind groups out there today, so it can be difficult to know which one will be the right fit for your business. In this post, I share three things to look for and make sure your mastermind group adheres to before deciding to join it.

1: Who’s the facilitator

Make sure your facilitator is a certified coach and a master facilitator. A certified coach will be able to listen and notice things that are not visible to others. A certified coach has the skill set that will allow them to give incredible feedback/laser coach you on the spot – and this will snap you right into alignment!
When you join a mastermind that’s led by a coach you’ll have the added benefit of upgrading to private coaching sessions when you need it with someone who you already know and trust. And they’ll be able to help you dial in and align with your wisest self, gain clarity, and help you to truly sync in with your gut and the best strategies for your unique business. While your mastermind buddies will give you amazing support, feedback, brainstorm challenges and will hold you accountable.

2: How are the masterminds put together?

When you’re the member of a mastermind, you’re both a receiver of support and a contributor of your own expertise and knowledge. A truly dynamic mastermind is thus curated to consist of a team of people who are high-level thinkers. These groups have diverse backgrounds and experience which enrich the opportunity for collaboration and the ability to be challenged and be pushed outside your comfort zone! Make sure that your mastermind is hand-selected and vetted.

3: What’s the objective of the mastermind group?

When you’re looking to join a mastermind group, be sure to look for one that’s aiming to deliver the same outcomes as you’re striving for. Not all business masterminds are created equally. So be sure to know what you want to receive from your mastermind group and make sure that everyone is striving for that same common goal. Ask the leader of the masterminds what the specific outcomes and goals are of the mastermind. Think about your specific goals and see if they align with the mastermind’s objective.

{Podcast} Journaling your way to clarity & success!

{Podcast} Journaling your way to clarity & success!

I’m very excited to share this episode with you today as I had so much feedback when I did a little poll about it on my Instagram stories ( follow me @hannekeantonelli, if you don’t already :)).

 

But back to today’s episode… I’m going to share all the ways that will inspire and help you to make journaling a more consistent part of your routine and help you use it in a way to get better results in your business and life.

 

Why do I recommend journaling:

It’s a great tool to build awareness, to clear your mind, help you make big decisions, and finally to create clarity on what actions to take next to create the business and life you want. I’ve also found that when I have resistance (or as some like to call it: when I procrastinate), journaling helps to highlight what’s creating that resistance to take action and helps me to get back in the flow.

Before I start:

I need you to really hear the following: there is no right or wrong way to journal. Don’t get stuck in the “how do I do it perfectly” trap. However you want to use what I’m about to share today is perfect, why? Because it’s how YOU want to use it. It’s YOURS and you can take what I share, add, subtract, chop and change… the main thing here is to have fun with it!

How a mastermind will keep you grounded, accountable and help you achieve massive results

How a mastermind will keep you grounded, accountable and help you achieve massive results

There is nothing quite like feeling connected and fully supported in your business! And that’s precisely what being part of a mastermind provides you – mastermind support. Having this high level of support naturally helps you to feel more grounded.

As Forbes said: “Having people around to call on when you need it is one of the soundest investments you can make.”

Mastermind support goes beyond that.

When you participate in the mastermind, you state your goals, ideas, and dreams out loud in a safe space where people are cheering you on and rooting for your success. And, no – it’s not always unicorns and rainbows, your mastermind buddies will also call you out on your BS and get real with you when you need a good kicking up the a$$.

Which means you’re way more aligned with your goals and will take all the measures possible to achieve them because you’re being held accountable on a deep level.

Imagine if you had this level of accountability and connection in your business? Apply to be part of the Savvy Business Masterminds today!

Mastermind Case Study

Mastermind Case Study

KT-8496_vcropWhen I started the Savvy Business Mastermind:
  • My website had not yet launched.
  • I had no new clients for the year.
  • I was living in a state of panic/fear that I was not going to succeed.
  • I had no benchmarks or strategies in place by which to measure my growth

Even though I had been reading motivational business books and forcing myself to attend networking events I knew something needed to change. Making the intentional financial decision to work with a business coach in a committed and collaborative is the absolute best decision I have made for my business yet. The tangible, as well as the psychological benefits of Hanneke’s mastermind, have exceeded my expectations.  Because the mastermind has transformed my overall approach, I feel far greater equipped to weather the peaks and valleys of daily business ownership.

Tangibles:
Since starting the Savvy Business Mastermind my income ( specifically for my business) is currently at 96% of what my entire income was between March-December of the previous year.

 

Personal:
I did not go into the mastermind thinking that I would necessarily make friends, but I have been so pleasantly surprised to have done just that. 😊
