How much do I need to invest?

So know you know what you are going to get from these events, I hope you are keen to get started because we would love to hear from you. To join the mastermind group you will need to commit for 12 months to really get the most out of this group. Membership will be charged monthly and should be paid in advance each month. If you fail to pay your membership for 1 month your position as a member will be cancelled and offered to a waiting list member. Monthly payments must be received by the 1st of the month prior (pay on 1 October for November membership). That way we know you are serious about your business, serious about building relationships, serious about making money, and understand we have to pay upfront for the expenses related to the group meetings and our time to organise everything.

For less than $30 per hour for each mentor in the room, you can’t go wrong. Some of the members charge up to $397 per hour. You could take advantage of being in the group to extract the information you need from them for up to 15% of the client charging rate. How amazing is that!

Your investment is $1,500 per month. You will then receive an invoice to be paid on the 1st of the next month following the first event. A minimum commitment of 12 months is required to ensure you get the results you want for yourself and your business.

We guarantee you will get value for money and much more.

Apply today to join our group (20 minute survey) and become a brilliant business owner.

When is the first event?

The group will commence on the 1st Friday of the month following when the group membership is full or has a minimum of 6 paying members. You will be notified by email to ensure you are kept up to date and as soon as we have secured a room booking.

Can I send someone else in my place?

You are welcome to recommend a replacement member to attend on your behalf (should you not be able to attend). In which case you will need to ensure they are up-to-speed on previous discussions and know and understand your plan of action, otherwise you won’t get value for money or see the progress you expect to achieve. Your replacement will also need to completely understand your business and have the authority to accept any actions items that they deem suitable for your business.

Note: It is up to you to ensure you get value for your investment. We will do what we can to ensure that as well.  Your investment will not be refunded if there is no one to take your place.  You may cancel your membership by providing at least one month’s notice in writing to the facilitators.

We would love to consider you for our group, if you agree with all the criteria above then this group could be the most important group you have ever joined. Mention to us where you saw the advertisement and you may receive a special gift valued at $300.
