“I feel stuck”

This is the phrase I hear often from people who are trying to make progress with their creative work: “I feel stuck.”

Sure, they have a strong vision, but they are also swamped with daily responsibilities. They can’t seem to find a clear path forward.

As we head into spring, something you may already be asking yourself is, “Am I making progress?” Do you feel a sense of momentum in your creative work?

I’m going to ask you to make a choice right now:

  • Option 1: Below, I’m going to tell you about a small group coaching program I am opening up a handful of slots for: my private mastermind group. Here, we work together to create progress with your work. It is genuinely one of the most special things I have ever offered.
  • Option 2: If that doesn’t interest you, stop reading. Close this window, and get back to work. I don’t want to get in your way. (Heads up: I’m working on a massive post next week that I think you will LOVE.)

Okay, if you are still with me, let’s dig in…

What Creates Momentum?

My mastermind group is basically a small group coaching program, with lots of collaboration and personal feedback. Recently, I have talked about collaboration being the secret to success. You will be part of a group of 15 people (plus me!), who become your team to help you brainstorm, get focused, create a plan, and stay accountable.

Working on creative projects is often a lonely endeavor filled with overwhelm and doubt. The mastermind setting removes both of those things, creating clarity and support.

I don’t open the doors to this group very often, and I want to make note of this up front: nearly half the slots are already filled, meaning if you are interested, please take action soon. Slots go on a first come, first served basis.

What the Mastermind Gives You

The mastermind is for writers, crafters, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, and others whose work is not just about earning money, but about creating something special that will enrich the lives of others.

The focus of the mastermind is two-fold:

  1. To act as a feedback and support group to help you gain clarity in your goals, and focus in working towards them every single day. We assist you in establishing the right habits, and are there to keep you accountable.
  2. In this mastermind session, I am also adding the theme of “audience engagement.” I will provide insights, worksheets, and prompts to help you focus on ways to identify, grow, and engage your audience.

This program has had profound results for previous participants. After teaching years of courses, I am now focusing more on the mastermind because the effects are simply off the charts.

Members of past mastermind sessions have found incredible clarity on what they should be doing; they have made leaps in their careers; they have become healthier; they have felt better about doing the work that they love.

How the Mastermind Works

The mastermind happens virtually — wherever you are.

You are given access to our private Slack group, which is basically a 24/7 instant messaging system for small teams. This is where you can brainstorm ideas, share insights, cry for help, and feel a sense of collaboration in what can be an otherwise lonely process.

I am in there every day providing feedback.

I post a private video each day discussing topics from the group. These videos provide an inside look into how to truly make progress. I will not talk in theory, but in terms of practical steps, sharing with you how I am doing this myself. Each video is in direct reaction to what the group is talking about, nothing is prerecorded. I am in the trenches with you, finding clarity and momentum.

Take Action

If the mastermind sounds like it may be fore you, full details are here. It costs $250 per month to join, and it’s a 3-month commitment.

If the mastermind is not right for you for any reason, I completely understand. As I mentioned above, I’m working on a big post for next week, and between now and then, I hope you are able to pursue the work that matters most to you.
