I’m in my 2nd year of Mastermind which is a group I attend with other business owners once every 8 weeks. We have 36 hours out of the business and fully immerse into our own businesses, working with each other and our coach to come out the other side with actions, a ton of homework, decisions made and a way forward for the next 8 weeks.
The first year of mastermind I was honing the type of business I want, the type of business I would like to do and specifically who with. Making those decisions has helped me understand what I want from my business, what I enjoy doing, what I’m really good at and who I need to employ to do things I either don’t want to do or could do better than me.
Koogar’s whole team work remotely and this is something I am very proud of. Everyone on my team are here for a reason and each person is REALLY good at what they do. I’ve worked like this since the 3rd year of business (2009) and have found it to be the best working model for Koogar. Not only because each person is a specialist but also because we are effectively streamlined to suit the needs of our clients.
The second year of Mastermind started in May and this year we received a SitRep which is a report based on the current situation used in the military. As my coach is an ex-soldier this was apt although a little strange and interesting at the same time.
So for the next session we were given a new task to complete called our Battle Plan which is what our vision, thoughts, ideas and dreams are for ourselves and our businesses and it was tough to complete.
I had the fear of getting it wrong, wondering if these things are really what I want and HOW I was going to achieve them.
We have our own Facebook Group and everyone submitted their Battle Plans differently. One with a mind map, one on video, one in a word document and so on… I delivered mine in the shape of a vision board with a word document to back it up with the numbers I’m looking at achieving this year.
You see… what I have realised in the first year of Mastermind is that I’m not driven for money. My drivers are my lifestyle and how I want to live every day, what I want to do, who I want to do it with and where I want to do it.
As my business coach says… Your business is the resource that will enable you to have the lifestyle you want and the business you want to run.
I love what I do. I’m passionate about marketing and customer service and how it helps our businesses achieve results and goals we set for it.
What is your Battle Plan and do you have someone who is helping you achieve it?
