Q: What is a mastermind?
It is a methodology commonly used in the coaching industry. It draws on the collective expertise of a group of individuals or businesses who meet with a common purpose in mind, with the support of an experienced facilitator and coach guiding the conversations and supporting you to gain clarity, identify actions to take and define measurable goals focused on you achieving a desired outcome.
The SBA Prosperitas Business Mastermind will include live coaching and teaching from your facilitator as needed individually and for the collective good of the group members. So it is a mastermind with the added bonus of professional business coaching.
Q: How is the program delivered?
The SBA Prosperitas Business Mastermind will be delivered online over a series of 6 sessions. It is facilitated by a professional business coach who has 15 years experience coaching, consulting and training small business owners individually and in groups. Sessions will be fortnightly providing you with support over a 3 month period. In addition to the live online mastermind sessions there is additional support provided in a private member only Facebook group.

Q: How do I connect with the fortnightly sessions?
Each session will be delivered using the Zoom platform. A private, password protected link will be provided to you via email before the sessions commence.
Q: Can I bring a team member with me to the online sessions?
Yes but it must be a senior member of your team and someone who you'd consider a decision maker. For example your business partner, co Director, Operations Manager, Marketer, etc. It must also be the same person each time.
Q: What do the sessions involve?
The sessions will follow an agenda to allow for participation by all group members. The agenda will be similar to the following;
- Introductions and member accountability check ins
- Member hot seats, including member feedback and live coaching

Q: Do I need to prepare for the sessions?
The best way to gain maximum benefit from the program is to come to each of the fortnightly sessions prepared.
Preparation is simple - bring a problem, issue or concern you would like feedback on. You will be given a few minutes to present your topic to the group. The group will be able to provide feedback and you'll receive additional support and coaching from your coach.
Q: Is there support between group sessions?
Yes, additional support will be made available within the Mastermind Facebook group. Your coach will be present in the group each business day along with the SBA CEO and Marketing Coordinator, who will be available to answer questions and provide administrative support as needed.
Q: What if I can't make a session?
The sessions will be recorded and a recording made available to you within 24 hours of the Zoom call.
