Get some help from the Masterminds!

Next Mastermind Group is on 28th July 2014

You spoke. We listened.  What the KindredHQ community really want is a way to spur each other on and share experiences of running their freelance business.

What’s a Mastermind Group?

You can’t beat the energy, commitment, and excitement of a Mastermind Group and we’ve adapted the tried and tested idea to suit our needs as independents. The beauty of Mastermind Groups is that participants raise the bar by challenging each other to create and implement goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion. In effect, we act as catalysts for growth, devil’s advocates and supportive colleagues.

The agenda is decided by the group, and each person’s participation is key. You will get feedback, help with brainstorming, and – very important – an action plan to keep you focused and on track. All this, AND being part of a fun, energetic group of fellow freelancers and independents who totally understand what you are going through.

What Will You Get From It?

• Answers and ideas, which come from brainstorming with the group

• Shared experience

• Gentle prods from the group to help you keep going

• A group who ‘get’ your freelance life and workstyle

• Knowledge that you aren’t alone

• Huge fun.

How Does It Work?

We’ll be meeting at one of our friendly co-working venues at least one evening a month.  We’ll start at 6pm and we’ll finish around 8.30pm.

We’ll work in groups of up to 6, so you’ll notice we are limiting the numbers. Get it there fast if you want to be in at the start!

A typical session will work along these lines:

• The session starts with a quick introduction or refresh of a previous session

• Each participant has between 20 and 30 minutes to outline their issue and answer clarification questions from the other participants.
You’ll come away with ideas, solutions and support from your peers that you can action for the next meeting.

• We’ll record group and individual actions and we’ll show you how we are going to keep the momentum up in between meetings.

Is there a charge?

Yes. You can either pay for one session at a time or in a block of 4.  If you take that option you’ll get one session for free.  Kindred Spirits Mastermind Sessions cost £20 plus VAT each, or £60 plus VAT  for 4 sessions. (There are discounts for members)

Interested?

Once you’ve indicated that you are coming, all you need to do is register and pay through Eventbrite  (just follow the link).

Who is Alex Butler

Hello, I'm Alex Butler and I founded the KindredHQ community and blog back in 2011 after I re-started a freelance career. I LOVE freelancing and I wouldn't swop the freedom, control and joy of working for myself for anything. But I realised how much I missed the company and energy of other people - of having a team around me. So, I got a few people together one day with our laptops, a jar of coffee and some jelly babies and we sat and worked together one afternoon. We've been doing that every week in London, UK since then! I am still 100% freelance and I like to share the everyday highs and lows of being a freelancer here on the blog.
