Mastermind 2022 *now closed*
OMGeeeeeeeee I cannot wait for when the clock strikes midnight and the worries and the woes and the losses and the lows of the Panny D life dissipate forever! Fresh start! New Year, New Me! Resolutions! Resets! Yayyyyy!!!
Except, obviously, there is no Fairy Godmother, no Glass Slipper, and (thankfully) no Prince who doesn’t recognise us without our make up on.
I saw a meme once talking about how Cinders would’ve been better off staying with her animal mates, and I thought… perhaps. But I reckon what she really needed was some consistent womanly solidarity, developmental coaching and strategic support.
Fancy it yourself? Introducing my 2022 Mastermind
This could be for you if:
You can recite every piece of life changing advice on instagram but your life isn’t changing much. You ‘know’ what you ‘should’ be doing to grow your business, or have a better experience of your day to day life, but you simply cannot sustain it, or even get started on it some days- making it to bedtime can be hard enough.
You chastise yourself for procrastinating, being unproductive and easily distracted. You can’t seem to follow through like you used to- there’s always something standing in your way. You’re fucking exhausted. Yes, it’s the doing, but it’s also all the thinking about things. All the things that are wrong with this world, all the ways you’d like to be making a bigger contribution to change. If only you could get your own life in order- you know you’d be an amazing conduit for resources if you had the time and energy.
You don’t even wanna make magnificent moves right now- you imagine that desire might come back, but mostly you wanna get some reliability back into your life. You want life to feel spacious and secure.
You’ve struggled with schism upon schism (my fave word I’ve learned in this era), and the places where you can relax into a sense of belonging are fewer and further between than ever.
You don’t know why we are all acting like things are back to normal, when so much has changed, there’s been little chance to process it all, and you are trying to get to grips with who you are now and what matters most.
Here's how I will put you in complete control of your life in three easy steps! (JOKES). I'm inviting you to expand your self belief with my support...
You might be thinking- what’s self belief got to do with it- society is falling apart, and now I have to try harder to believe in myself? Not try harder babes, try something different- addressing the root causes of your struggles. Any exploration of root cause has to include the way that systems of oppression have us spinning and sinking, as well as your individual lived experiences informing your Self Doubt.
When I talk about expanding your self belief, I’m talking about increasing your tolerance for ambiguity, and your capacity to influence the world around you (in ways big and small). I’m talking about including the relevant circumstances in all of our considerations, so that you can navigate them from a place of truth, rather than gaslighting yourself.
You might be thinking- ‘she believed she could, but she couldn’t stop procrastinating, so she didn’t’. Babes- procrastination signifies a lack of self trust. We will get into that.
You might be thinking- I’ve achieved big things in my life already- obviously I already have Self Belief! Ok sometimes I do. Or where I don’t, it’s because I’m objectively not good enough to do/ have/ be something. Hmmm. We are not as objective as we think we are. In fact, we are barely objective at all. AND Self Doubt is incredibly context sensitive. You may have flown through other phases of your life with genuine confidence- perhaps even things that others might consider harder than your current circumstances. The thing is- growth is not linear, or logical.
And the part of us that seems to be sabotaging us (but is actually striving to keep us safe from psychological risk) has had more to play with than ever before during Covid times. It’s no wonder we are feeling lots of feelings, and lacking clarity and motivation.
Babes. Let me get to it. The Mastermind Groups I’ve been running since August 2020 have been some of my fave work I’ve ever done.
- The connection & cohesion
- The expansion into possibility
- The freedom to meet the needs of each woman as they’ve arisen, without being bound to a curriculum or one size fits all agenda
“It gave me the confidence to put myself out there and equip me with tools to handle trolls. It educated me on how to best communicate matters/issues, gave me a huge volume of information to continue to build my learning. It held me accountable for progress on my own goals and led me to consider other ways of tackling issues that were presented to me. It didn’t feel high pressure to reach targets but definitely helped give me momentum towards my plans.
Just a huge thanks, I never know exactly what I’m getting when I work with you, but I just have this little feeling like ‘I need a bit of Keri now’ and it always gives me the push I need. I’ll always be back for more, when the feeling is back!”
And yet. I’ve kept having this niggling feeling, and I’ve been waiting for the wisdom to make it from my body to my brain. Turns out…
The niggle says, “more please”. More space for life. More time. More integration. More depth. More familiarity so that my coaching is even more effective. More diversity of experience would be amazing. More connections. Imagine if that person from group 1 had the chance to be alongside that person from group 3- the synergies would be awesome.
The niggle also whispers, “less please”. Less pressure. Less urgency. Less demand, as these ambiguous times roll on and on. Less need for people to ‘make the most of it RIGHT NOW’, even when life has other ideas.
Babes, I don't wanna rush through your needs, your learning, your desires in 3 months. I want to take a whole trip around the sun with you. All the seasons of your life witnessed, held and supported. The strategies we co-create being tested and refined, together. Layer upon layer of unconditional positive regard. You having experiences of feeling accepted and valued and celebrated, regardless of your output or outcomes.
I know that it’s a lot sexier if I say- I’m gonna teach you a 5 step system to make more money! I’m gonna take you on an intergalactic adventure to your best life! That stuff is practically orgasmic. Whereas what I’m offering you is more vague. More grounded. Also more real.
Babes. Marketing this experience by telling the whole truth about it- that whilst there will be big realisations, many parts of is will feel subtle and gentle, that there are no specific visible guaranteed outputs, and that it will take time and energy to bring a new perspective to life- it’s everything we’ve been taught not to do.
But I trust that you are smart enough to work out that
Whilst we have so much in common in our experiences of the past couple of years especially, we also have very different needs and desires. (And babes, this is so important to remember, because that Patriarchal conditioning wants us to believe that we all wanna win at the same game of life, so that we compete with one another, fiercely, to acquire scarce resources and status).
And so, a fully formed, pre- planned curriculum has its limitations. I am unwilling to tie us to a weekly topic for as far ahead as December 2022 when the group might yearn for something else. Instead, I will offer you a monthly workshop, with the space around them spent exploring your needs as they come along. This is the kind of organic, responsive approach I use with my 1:1 clients, and original Mastermind groups, and it allows for much more meaningful growth.
“It would be hard to quantify the meaning of the time, but your level of support, expertise and care is second to none.”
Ashley Parker, Relationship Therapist
What are these workshops gonna be then Kezza?
Babes, month by month, I am going to help you get better acquainted with all of your selves. That’s not a typo. You contain multitudes. The inner work we do together is going to increase your tolerance for the complexity life keeps presenting us with, support you to move through conflict (rife, right?) with more peace, and expand your capacity for personal growth. We are going to be exploring the space between your self- doubt, and self- belief, so that the root causes of the challenges you face in your life and business can be permanently addressed.
Can't you just tell me what to do though?
Not gonna lie, sometimes, a bit, probably. The way I work is a blend of coaching, mentoring and teaching. So whilst I can’t tell you how to ‘fix’ your self doubt, or how to love and accept yourself wholly and completely by tomorrow at 2pm, I can share tried and tested methods re running a small biz. I know how to build community, to communicate values, to create great content, to sell, etc. And I will happily offer all of that up, with your consent.
What other sessions will we have?
Group Coaching on Zoom twice each month. You can come to the whole of both sessions, or drop in and out. I know for sure that witnessing each other being coached, and offering support and solidarity builds both confidence and cohesion, but also that life is full. You decide what’s best each time. All calls will be recorded and available to the group within 48 hours. Live calls will usually take place on Mondays at midday, but occassionally may need to flex with notice.
How will you support me in between workshops and group coaching calls?
Babes, access to all I know is yours during school hours. (I will continue to be available generally during school holidays, but will give you notice of some days off, because this is a whole year, and I gotta have breaks to be at my best). You will be in receipt of my personal responsiveness to your needs in our group space, and the input of your peers, as well as experiencing one of my love languages on the regular- BOOK AND PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS. Speaking of this…
I'm including a book club with a difference!
Babes, I fucking love to read- I know lots of you do too, but struggle to commit the time. The difference with this book club is that you don’t have to read it! You’re welcome to, obvs, and I would love it if some of you did. But each month, you can turn up with a G&T or a cup of tea and listen to me and whoever else read it talk about what we learned and enjoyed about the book.
How many women are gonna be in this community?
A minimum of 10, a maximum of 22. Because 10 is great number to bring bountiful experience, to take turns to lead and to lean, and for you to connect with a couple of ride or die biz buds who you feel super aligned with. And because we are going into 2022, and whilst I am a pragmatic person, I also love me some charming meaning making.
Twice each month, we are going to meet online for (optional) yoga classes with my brilliant bud Keira. She is a fellow member of All Rise Collective, and I have been yearning to be in front of her on a mat since Covid struck and her weekly classes stopped. She is wonderful, and I can neither confirm nor deny that I have created this entire programme to facilitate this wish of mine.
Everyone will get a 90 min 1:1 Coaching Call with me to be taken any time during our work together, usually charged at £300.
Is that all you've got?
OF COURSE NOT! This is my fave bit. We are going to meet, in person, on the Summer Solstice, Tuesday 21st June. We are going to have a beautiful brunch (food and drink included in your investment) at a lovely London location, and bask in the brilliance of all we have co-created thus far.
What's the investment?
The investment is £3000, and payment plans are available at no extra cost. (For context, my 3 month Mastermind format was £2,222. It absolutely had some differences in format, but/ and I am really thrilled to be able to strike this balance here with this offering).
Options include, but are not limited to:
4 payments of £750
6 payments of £500
10 payments of £300
12 payments of £250
15 payments of £200
I would prefer not to extend beyond 15 months ideally, because I know as a client it doesn’t always feel good to go on making payments for something long after completion of the programme, but I am open to having conversations about what makes this accessible for you.
Babes, I'm running a live Bonus Sesh for anyone who has signed up by that point on December 13th at midday- a 2021 Review, which I promise will be way more fun than it sounds, and a brilliant way to begin to bond with your fellow Masterminders.
I’m building this group through an application process so that you and I take appropriate, shared responsibility for making sure that this programme is the right fit for you. Completing the application should take no more than 15 minutes- trust the first answers that come to mind, if you are able!
This will be followed up with a 20 minute call to make sure we are vibing and understanding one another clearly. If we both decide to go ahead, you’ll receive a personalised agreement outlining features of the programme, expectations and agreed payment terms. You’ll have 14 days to change your mind following payment of the first installment, providing the work has not yet begun. Once the work has begun, no refunds will be given, so please invest with intention.
I want more 1:1 time with you Kezza
I’d love that! A few people have asked about this since I opened up applications. I haven’t included a VIP option because everyone is a VIP babes.
Also, I feel like you might imagine you’ll need 1:1 calls, then realise the existing container is enough. I think people can find it tricky to envisage the kind of intimacy we can offer each other in a well held group.
So if you want more 1:1 as you go along, you can book it in with me.
My usual rate is £300, but I’ll offer Mastermind Members a special rate of £200 to use once per quarter.
I've got questions!
You can drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM me on instagram (I’m not there much at weekends, so bear that in mind please).
