“Joining the Bay Area Mastermind is one of the best things I have done for myself and for my business. The one day a month completely recharges my entrepreneurial juices and I have a virtual advisory board available by email for the in between time. I take away so much actionable information that I regularly apply to my business. As a result my business has grown by 60% and profits have grown by 400% since I joined.“
“My journey as a new business founder is probably not that unique. For years, I was all over the place, following every piece of advice I could find online. I thought I was being productive, constantly tweaking my landing pages and sales pitches. But truth be told, I felt like I was wandering in the dark. It was like taking one step forward and two steps back. I had no clue what was actually working and what was just wasting my time. Can you imagine the frustration?
As a coach myself, I should have found a mentor or a support group sooner. But I just couldn’t find anybody I trusted.
That is, until I came across Jeremy’s Founders Group. And let me tell you, it has been a total game-changer. In just two months, I’ve gained more clarity than I did in the past 4 years of running my business. It’s like I finally found the missing puzzle piece, you know?
See, it’s easy to find generic advice online. Figure out your niche, craft your unique value proposition, create a repeatable sales process, and put in a consistent effort. But trust me, following generic advice is useless if you don’t know how to troubleshoot what’s not working. Is it my sales copy? Am I targeting too broad an audience? Should I try paid traffic? Or post more on social media?
You either end up changing way too many things together, or it takes forever to try every possible variation one at a time.
But the Founders Group, oh boy, it’s been a godsend. Not only do we get amazing guidance from Jeremy, our rockstar facilitator, but we also have this fantastic community of fellow founders. These folks have incredibly diverse experiences, and whenever I’m stuck, I just throw a question into the group, and boom! I get all kinds of insightful responses.
I finally have support, encouragement, and a sense of community. It’s not just about the business advice either; the genuine connections we’re building, and the emotional support have been incredible as well.
So, if you’re a new business founder struggling to get your business to that first big milestone, Jeremy’s Founders Group is where you need to be. Don’t go it alone when you can have an entire tribe cheering you on.”
Jeremy has so much experience facilitating masterminds and the wisdom and care he brings to his mastermind facilitation make make our meetings 100x better. Another great perk is that our monthly meeting venue – a private members only club – is an amazing place to be. Even though we’re working hard, our meetings are so enjoyable because of who we are with and where we are.
