So, what is a business mastermind group?
You can simply see it as a support team dedicated at speeding up the attainment of your happiness and success.
It is a group of people who get together to brainstorm on their challenges and help each other grow. The concept is very old and was practiced by many of the well-known successful people in the world.
A business mastermind group for example can be seen as your personal board of directors. A support team dedicated at speeding up your business growth.
A private mastermind group focuses on your personal challenges such as happiness, health, relationships, etc.
What will I get from it?
Here are a few benefits you get from being part of the Connecting Diamonds Mastermind group:
- You get unstuck more quickly: through new ideas from the group.
- You can move forward on your goals: through accountability from the group.
- You keep your spirit high: you are surrounded by positive people who come to the group because they want to succeed or improve an aspect of their lives.
- You are challenged to dream bigger: we usually tend to keep in our comfort zone. Your peers will challenge you to constantly get out of your comfort zone.
- You get a support group: of like-minded people who are there for you.
- Networking: with people with similar challenges or interests that you.
What about confidentiality?
It is the first rule in the mastermind groups. Every member of the group signs a confidentiality agreement before we start our journey.
Are there any other rules for your mastermind groups?
Yes, there are. Everyone in the program should adhere to the following rules:
- Self-love and self-respect
- Mutual respect & mutual acknowledgement
- Curiosity for the goals of the other members
- Giving generous support and receiving support
- Non-violent, question-driven communication style.
- Committing to self-growth and the group´s members growth
- Presence at each meeting
- Group specific rules will be discussed for each group and agreed on during the first meeting.
How does the selection process work?
If you are considering joining the Connecting Diamonds Mastermind groups, then connect with me for a preliminary phone call. There we find out whether one of the programs is right for you.
I have a 3-Step Selection Process in place in order to assign you to the right group:
- First, you fill in a pre-selection form. Here I classify applicants regarding their general interest.
- Once you are pre-selected, I will send you a second selection form to fill in. Here I will refine the selection and assign you to a group of women who best balance out your skills and personality.
- Finally, I select the final members of the program after a phone or virtual conversation.
- You sign an agreement to work with the group and a confidentiality agreement. What happens in the mastermind group will stay in the mastermind group.
- I require payment of the full mastermind fee upfront + a „one-time“ administration fee to join the program. However, payment plan is available depending of the program.
- Each group supports its members while they take operative steps towards their self-defined goals.
- During each session, every member gets 20 min in the „hot seat“
- When it is your turn, you present an aspect you would like feedback on
- All other members will suggest solutions
- You commit to actions to be carried out until the next session.
- When it is another member’s turn, you offer them the same attention and support.
- The better prepared you are, the more you make use of your time with the group.
- 3 to 4h per Meeting and the time you need for your preparation
- Energy and focus
- Your monthly mastermind fees, which are less than a quality handbag.
After each mastermind program you have the option to join a new group. I start new business mastermind groups twice a year and private mastermind group yearly.
What if you want to quit?
If for any reason, the mastermind group is not helpful after the first 2 months, you can quit and I will refund you your money for the following months. However, I require proof that you prepared each session, took the steps you committed to take and followed up on them.
Someone has stolen my idea? What should I do?
One important aspect of a mastermind group is that you share ideas with others.
In order to be able to do that, it is important to believe in abundance. There is enough for everyone.
Note that, every group member may use an idea you put in the room.
In our selection process for business mastermind groups, we make sure we put you in a group where no one is doing the same job as you. That way, competition is reduced. If nevertheless you feel that a member of the group is copying you, then get in touch with me to discuss the matter.
Are the meetings recorded?
Yes they are. You can listen to the recording later at home. Several clients have reported how useful they find the recording.
What if I miss a meeting?
One of the rules of the mastermind group is presence. You get the most benefits when you are present and participate in the meetings. All meetings are set at the beginning of the program for you to save them in your calendar. If you miss a meeting, make sure you at least report your progress and current challenges in the private Facebook group. You keep up with your goals and your peers can give you ideas or feedback.
Note that missing more than 2 meetings during a program is not recommended.
You probably have heard about mastermind groups or you have been yourself in a mastermind group that did not go so well.

My role is to:

- For business mastermind groups, make sure that no two group members are running the same business or competitive businesses
- Organize the meetings & facilitate the meetings

- Provide you with resources to help your personal or your business development growth.
Why did you start the Connecting Diamonds Mastermind groups?
When you commit to changes in your personal development, mostly the journey feels lonesome.
By choosing self-employment, many people feel forced to choose to work alone.
To me, the world would be a better place if nobody „had“ to work alone.
With the Connecting Diamonds Mastermind groups, I am offering YOU:
- A community with the benefits of working with supportive peers to reach your goals
- Success through the synergies that are possible when great minds meet
- and the possibility to take your business and life to levels beyond your own imagination.
Someone is holding the group back. I want them out!!!
In case a group member´s attitude is holding the group back, and I have not noticed it, please come to me privately about the matter. I will take necessary measures. Kindly make sure that you always use non-violent communication style towards other group members.
I am not satisfied. I want my money back.
If for any reason, the mastermind group is not helpful after the first 2 months, you can quit. I will refund you your money for the following months. However, I require proof that you prepared each session, took the steps you committed to take and followed up on them.
What is the admin fee for?
It is a one-time fee to put you in the program after you qualified in the selection process. As long as you are a part of the Connecting Diamonds Mastermind program, you do not have to pay that fee again.
Do you have a payment plan?
Yes I do. For each program there is a payment plan.
