Creative Entrepreneurs and Performing Artists Mastermind   

You’re at your desk, alone, struggling to create something meaningful out of your thoughts. It’s just not happening. Something is wrong, and you don’t know what. If only you had someone you could talk to about the problem. Someone who understands what you’re going through.

Sound familiar?

Management Insights Creative Entrepreneurs and Performing Artists Mastermind

Group is a powerful and safe place where you can channel your energy, attention, and money with a team of likeminded, creative people who help each other succeed. Big time.

We help each other stay focused so you can keep your dream alive, hone your craft and business skills, delight your audiences, and be rewarded handsomely for your efforts.

Mastermind groups have been around for ages. King Arthurs’s round table was a mastermind group. Benjamin Franklin had a mastermind group.

Management Insights Creative Artists Mastermind and our other business coaching services use the power of the group that is greater than any one individual. The result helps us navigate through the artistic and business challenges we all face.

As an entrepreneur or an actor you know lonely it is at the top. It is really hard to find someone to share your business problems with or get help to make decisions. You are the leader, and the buck stops with you.

When you get involved in our mastermind group that feeling of "being alone" while running your business or career goes away.

How does a mastermind work?

Each of mastermind groups is made up of no more than 8, smart, creative people who meet twice a month to tackle challenges and problems together. We become a team of supportive friends you can talk safely to about what you would like help with.

In short, our mastermind groups transform you, your business, and your life That’s the basic idea behind mastermind groups. They are people who know you and your business and can help you find solutions to problems.

Traditional mastermind groups are oriented toward business owners and CEOs. Management Insights Creative Entrepreneurs and Performing Artists Mastermind does that too, but we are geared toward you: Creative artists and entrepreneurs

How does it work?

Monthly Meetings

  • Typically meetings last about 90 minutes and are recorded and posted (live) in members-only Facebook group.
  • Meetings are held every two weeks. 
  • Hot seats happen every meeting.
  •  Learning and education days.

Typical Agenda

Each session includes time to talk about your success’s challenges, outcomes, and goals you will commit to before the next meeting.

Learning and Education Days

Once every two weeks or so one hot seat session includes learning and implementing a topic of interest to the group by a member or guest. For example, if a member wants to learn about email automation, we will implement that topic with them live so the group can learn together. 

Lessons might include: 

  • Project management
  • CRM
  • Review your business tools
  • Productivity
  • Automatic email, and social campaigns
  • Customer experience - never lose another customer
  • Culture
  • Deep work
  • Writing
  • Performing
  • Profit first advanced topics
  • Leadership
  • Dashboards
  • Helpful business book review

Better yet members choose to present their zone of genius to the group.

Hot seat sessions and take aways  make up the balance of the meeting

On-Site Retreats

  • In the future, we plan to schedule two intensive deep work two-day on-site retreats a year. Video calls are great, but the intensive two days we will spend together as a group will make all future emails, Facebook posts, and video calls more successful.
  • Each member will get two dedicated hours of the group focus on the main day, and then 30 minutes of recap and follow-up the following day. That is 10 - 12 hours of intense deep work. 
  • Take your moon shot with lots of laughter, gnashing of teeth, and exactly what you need to get your business from where you are now to where you want to be.

Key Roles and responsibilities

  • Key rules and accountabilities so everyone can bring a killer amount of unique value to the table.
  • There are no more than 8 people total in each group and each person brings a unique value or perspective to the table.
