Business Mastermind Group

Corner of Yonge Street and Richmond St West

CA$10.00

Magic happens when we get together. Business owners learn best and grow fastest when we talk to each other. Every successful business owner belongs to a Mastermind group. All major moves I have made have been because of belonging to a mastermind group. Writing and publishing a book, engaging with international organizations, travel, and other interesting projects. If you have more you want to do, a Mastermind will help you do it. Join us to experience the power of Masterminds. We will Mastermind together giving you clear actionable next steps for growing you and your business. Meet other business owners to find out how they tackle the challenges you are facing. This will be an initial meeting of what will become an ongoing year-long Mastermind group. Come on out and see how this will work for you. This is for you if you are ambitious, ready to grow and want to make your business bigger and better. Join us at the Sunset Grill (https://sunsetgrill.ca/) at the corner of Young and Richmond (1 block south of the Queen subway stop). 8am - Introductions and welcome 8:20 - We will spend the next hour going around the table helping each other. You can choose to put forward a question or challenge, or not. You will learn as much by hearing what others are doing. 9:20 - Wrap up and next steps. Mastermind groups work best when the same people meet regularly. All members have a similar goal in mind: to continue evolving and grow our businesses. You’ll notice that all members are enthusiastic and passionate about our businesses. We hope that you become inspired with fresh, new ideas and contribute your unique perspective. We are charging a nominal fee of $10 to guarantee your spot. Breakfast is not included this time. The rule of thumb for Mastermind groups is that you 10x your investment. You can expect to walk away with >$100 worth of value in this trial session.

Starting Your Business - Building the Right Business for you

Online Webinar

CA$10.00

At the beginning everything is possible. Your job, in the Startup phase of your business is to begin systematically collapsing all possibilities into the right answers for you. There is a logical, smart step-by-step process to do that. Conventional advice is for you to decide all the answers before you begin. The challenge with this advice is that you don't have all the information you need to make all those decisions before you begin. When you make each of these decisions in the right order, you build your strong business foundations and each following decision builds on the earlier ones. Read or listen to any founders origin story and they follow an unconventional path. They talk about getting clarity on what and why they were doing it, then talking to customers. Most had customers before they began. That's how to build a business. You will learn what I learned about how to start a business. I discovered this by working with and studying 1000s of business owners. I am your business guide showing you the way. This first webinar helps you lay the most important foundation pieces to help you build a business from your strengths. Build a business you love, not one that you will grow to hate because it doesn't suit you. This is a mistake I've seen far too many business owners make. This is for you if you are in the early stages of beginning your business. You have an idea and you are figuring out how to make a business that will work for you. Agenda: >Introduction and welcome >Clarity around you and what you bring and what you need. How to use this knowledge to make the best decisions as you build your business. >Business models and their subtleties.
