If YOU’RE THE SUM OF THE 8 PEOPLE YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME WITH

DO YOU NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR PEER GROUP?

As you move up in the world—expanding what’s possible for yourself and consistently taking action towards your big goals—friends and colleagues might not be on the journey with you. It’s one of the conundrums of improving yourself:

  • You’re a leadeR

    …which naturally means that there are fewer people around you in a similar role. Mutually beneficial relationships are harder to find because you’re the go-to person for others; sometimes you give more than you get back.

  • Peers are Happy where they’re at

    You want to make big things happen, but friends are at a different stage and aren’t interested in being stretched (and sometimes prefer to complain over finding creative solutions).

  • Work’s competitive

    Colleagues in the same area want the competitive advantage--and let’s be honest, so do you--so your environment doesn’t exactly create ride-or-die support from those in your sphere.

  • People don’t understand your commitment or drive

    Bless cousin Sally but she doesn’t get it with her questions at Thanksgiving about “How’s the writing going?” and “Why don’t you just stop if it’s hard?”

    Hard is what makes this great, Sally.

GET a compassionate community of go-getters devoted to becoming better

I created Impact Mastermind to make it easy to accelerate every area of your life so that you can feel …

Coaching can be out of reach

Personally, one of the most transformational things I’ve done to accelerate my goals and quality of life has been joining a Mastermind.  

 

WHAT’S A MASTERMIND?

Masterminds are defined as a group of likeminded, motivated peers who support and drive each other towards measurable results.

 

In my Masterminds, you get an upleveled peer group to inspire your most productive year ever by sharing wins, what’s not working, ideas, ongoing encouragement, feedback, and (what I believe is the key) social accountability. As one of my Mastermind coaches says, “1+1 equals 11, not 2” with the collective intelligence of the group.

For the past 5 years I’ve been facilitating super popular writing Masterminds in-house and have seen massive growth in members who play full out in the group.

Over 3 months, members have

  • Completed writing projects by only working 15 minutes a day (after being stalled out the previous 6 months)

  • Learned to be present and actually take time off during holidays without sacrificing their productivity

  • Made lasting friendships

Why the Mastermind and not private coaching?

Here's the thing: academics already work in isolation.

I've been coaching individuals privately for years and have seen that showing up in a group is WAY more powerful because you get immediate evidence to contradict your internal dialogue about other people ("they have it all together...know what they're doing...have this great life...way better than me").

If you’re ready to step into the most creative version of yourself, apply now for interested in stepping up for the next round of application-only virtual Masterminds! I curate each Mastermind so that you’re surrounded by people on your level, at the same stage, and who are committed to action and showing up for one another weekly!

What members have to say

Your writing groups are key to creating a community of scholars and thinkers

“And in my view, community is key to success as a whole as well as individually.”

 

I can productively move forward!!!

“Thank you for [our group] yesterday. I wrote for an hour and a half last night – 7 pages of analysis – more than I’ve written in weeks. I’m just so relieved and feeling a bit of excitement.”

I KNOW I would have done far less if left to my own demise!!

“Thanks so much for the holding this group. I found it so valuable.”

 

I always appreciate the wisdom of the crowd

“You are a wealth of inspiration and thought-provoking ideas!”

have more questions?

+ How's the Mastermind delivered?

All live calls will happen via Zoom. When you register in the Mastermind, you'll receive a link to join the call and the link will be permanently posted in the Facebook group.

+ What happens if I can't make it to a live call?

Live calls will be recorded and posted in the Facebook group. If you'd like a question answered, post it in the group and the coaches will answer it there.

+ What if I don't have a Facebook account?

You will get a link to the live call and access the recording outside of our Facebook group, and I will connect you with your pod via their contact info. I would highly recommend creating an account so that you are part of the ongoing conversations and questions in the group.

+ How much time will be required every month?

You should expect to spend a 1-2 hours per week with the Mastermind between our big group call and connecting with your smaller pod, which is 1.2% of your time. The rest is up to you! The best Masterminds are those where members are actively engaged in checking in with others daily, which can be a few minutes of your time.

+ Do you offer refunds?

Because of the nature of the program, I do not offer refunds. You will get back what you put into the group. By having skin in the game you will be more motivated to invest into your fellow Masterminders and create amazing results for yourself. I am confident in the process and offer this as tough-coach love.

+ What if I already have peer support?

Fantastic! The Impact Mastermind will help you expand how you currently solve problems and see things from a new perspective. Friends, especially within the same organization/uni, often have a similar way of thinking. To become the best you, you must question your current assumptions, like "this is the way things are done around here." All pods and accountability partners are curated so that you are surrounded by others outside your organization.
