V Formation Mastermind is closed!
A new group will start January of 2019.
Running a business is so thrilling. But what we start out of love and passion can sometimes hit a block or a place where we feel a drag. V formations improve the efficiency of flying birds over long migratory routes, and that's what I want to help provide for your business. A mastermind group of other supportive women who are in it for the long run. You can count on your V Formation to give you the monthly accountability and motivation you need to do what you do best.
Other creative women-owned businesses that are ready to tackle 2018 together, mediated by yours truly. Five women in each formation.
Online, baby. So you can join in from where ever you are. We'll use Zoom for its group and recording capabilities.
It's essentially a mastermind group filled with support and accountability. Each participant will list their three goals for the year, and we'll get them done.
We all need a little support and love when we're pumped up about our goals, but we aren't quite sure how to reach them.
What You Get
Five badass creative business owners.
Each woman in your V Formation is there to provide accountability, support, feedback, and sparks of genius for your three biggest business goals.
As your V Formation liaison, I’ll mediate the group and bring my expertise as a coach for creative women entrepreneurs.
In between each session, I’ll be sure to reach out and see how things are going.
Access from anywhere.
This mastermind is 100% online, so all you need is a Wifi connection. (And maybe snacks.)
Q: Wait, how much is it?
A: $720 for the 1 hour mastermind session, mid-monthly email accountability follow-up, and all the e-courses (A $200 value).
Q: Do you have payment plans?
A: No, unfortunately. But I do have a reason, paying all upfront brings the commitment and level of seriousness I'm looking for in participants.
Q: What if I end up not liking it? Can I get my money back?
A: Absolutely. Your money can be prorated based on the sessions that you attended. However, each V Formation be the most effective if all members stay through the year! I encourage you to jump on a call with me to help determine whether or not this mastermind will be the right fit for you and your goals.
Q: Can I join in whenever?
A: Sorry, but no. To keep the groups as supportive as possible, we'll need everyone to commit to meeting monthly for a year, starting in January 2018. I may open up another group mid-2018. Stay tuned!
Q: What are the sessions going to be like?
A: Great question! They'll primarily be focusing on your goals and what you need to do to accomplish them. I'll be leading/mediating each session (not so much coaching) to make sure everyone gets equal time. I've found everyone has something to offer, so we'll have open discussions about pain points, questions, growth strategies, etc. when it's appropriate. However, a lot of this will depend on group dynamic! Expect a lot of love, support, and focused conversation.
Q: How are you structuring the groups?
A: Depending on the response, you may be grouped with people in a similar industry, location, or revenue as you. From doing a lot of group sessions in the past, I'm sticking to no more than five people. I've found that five is a good balance of people, where you feel like you can talk and be heard (but you don't have to carry the group, either).
Current V Formation Member experiences
I'm so glad I joined the V-Formation! I was worried about being in a group where I didn't know anyone, if the environment would feel open and honest, and if I would actually make progress. I should not have been worried at all! Nikki is so supportive and kind, and that is the spirit she cultivates in the group. This doesn't mean the meetings are one dimensional though, we are all able to share openly about struggles as much as successes and I feel myself challenged and energized every time we get together! I'm happy to be adding to my circle of support and I imagine these relationships lasting long beyond our group ending.
The V-formation was the small group environment I didn’t know I needed until I met Nikki at one of her goal-setting workshops. I was heading into my first full year of business with new goals in hand and drawn to the idea of a reoccurring sounding board and accountability group. But in just a few months I’ve gotten so much more than that. The honesty, vulnerability, and perspective that everyone brings makes the group unique. Nikki creates a comfortable environment to talk openly about the highs and lows of life with a creative business. Nikki brings a wide breath of business knowledge and experience but her inherently supportive and candid nature makes the group what it is and completely worthwhile.
I started the new year knowing I needed a formal accountability structure, but honestly, I was so burnt out from hustling nonstop without listening to my heart. I had a few friends who had hired Nikki for coaching + consulting and had rave reviews about her expertise, so I knew she was a solid business resource. But when I hopped on a call with her to see if the V Formation was right for me, I honestly almost cried because it felt like I was talking to an old friend - who was just as invested in my success as I was.
I felt like I could breathe. I could be myself. I could show up with all my faults and there was no judgment - only resource.
In the past 6 months, this has proven to be true over and over again with Nikki and my mastermind group. They are the best possible combination of holding space for me, keeping me accountable to my goals, calling me on my shit when necessary, sharing ideas and resources, cheering me on, and being a sounding board.
I’ve made incredible progress on some big ticket items I had in mind this year. But I think one of the things I most appreciate about Nikki is how in tune she is. She and the group have helped me reevaluate goals, determine whether or not they are actually in alignment with who I am and where my business is going, and shift or discard them accordingly. The V Formation is a holistic approach to growing your business in community, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I seriously adore Nikki and our mastermind, and I am so grateful for them!
