Live It Forward

Are you looking for a community of generous and motivated people who are as committed as you are to growing their influence, income, and impact?

The Live It Forward Mastermind is a tight-knit group of leaders, entrepreneurs, and business owners that focus on the following Key Result Areas (KRAs) in your life:

  • Faith: All of life is spiritual. Therefore, we encourage and equip one another to live according to Biblical principles in our personal lives, family lives, careers, and businesses.
  • Family: What good is business success or financial freedom if you lose your family along the way? Therefore, we strive to put God first, family second, and business third.
  • Business/Career: Even though business and career is our third KRA, that doesn't diminish its importance. We believe in both-and instead of either-or. In other words, you can experience success in both your family life and your career or business! Therefore, much of our focus and energy is on professional development as well as optimizing our business skills and strategies. (Note: If you do not own a business, it's still important to learn how to think and act like a business owner. You are the CEO of your career, and your #1 client is your employer. If you want to succeed at work, this mastermind is for you).
  • Finances: As stewards of God-given resources, we seek to plant, cultivate, and grow our cash-flow and net worth in order to create more options in our lives and careers.
  • Influence: As John Maxwell states, "Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flowcharts. It's about one life influencing another." Therefore, we see our lives, careers, and businesses as our ministry. We are called to invest in people and impact our world. This is why we do what we do.

These are worthy KRAs!

But, they are not easy to achieve.

If they were, more people would be winning at work and at home. More people would be financially free. More people would be investing in what matters most. And more people would be impacting others and making a difference.

If you are serious about achieving success in these Key Result Areas, the place to start is with the people you do life with.

So it's time for a reality check. Are you doing life with people who help you or hinder you in achieving goals in these Key Result Areas?

LIVE BY DESIGN (Not By Default)

The Live It Forward Mastermind is an exclusive community of people who are committed to the goals listed above. "Exclusive" in that this community is open to people by invitation and application only. This isn't because we're pompous or snooty. We are just highly committed to the goals above.

But even more, this is a tribe of folks who are committed to 5 CORE VALUES. You see, most mastermind groups are committed to a similar set of Key Result Areas (KRAs) listed above. What makes the Live It Forward Mastermind unique are these 5 values. We fight for these values. We stand for these values. We strive for these values. We treasure these values.

The truth is, if these are not core values for you, I guarantee this is not the mastermind for you.

5 Core Values of the LIVE IT FORWARD Mastermind

This is what we fight for. This is what we stand for. This is what we strive for. This is what we treasure.

  • True success is about more than money. Financial freedom is of HUGE importance to group members and something each of us is committed to achieving. But what good is financial success if you sacrifice what truly matters along the way?
  • We want our business or work to be a calling. We are called to positively influence others and impact our world. This is why we do what we do for a living. In fact, we see our lives and businesses as our ministry.
  • Bigger is not always better. If you’ve been in business for more than a nanosecond, you’ve heard about scaling. But we don’t believe that bigger is always better. Remember, financial freedom is not about how much you make, but how much you keep and how hard it works for you. That’s why we believe SIMPLICITY is often better than SCALING.
  • No one tells you about the Secret Sauce. Every successful person I’ve met secretly admits that beyond their business strategies and hard work there was an unpredictable, unrepeatable, happenstance moment or meeting that was crucial in opening the door to their success. While this does occur because of networking and genuine relationships, you cannot manipulate or force it to happen. It just happens. This was true for me in my first career as well as in the two businesses I’ve started. What this means to you is becoming the kind of person who can RECOGNIZE and RESPOND to these opportunities when they present themselves is as important, if not more important, than finding the right business strategies or formulas. Who you are and how you connect with others matters just as much as what you can do.
  • We love and respect FREEDOM! We pursue vocational and financial freedom because it gives us options. But more importantly, we respect freedom and know it requires responsibility, character, and virtue from us.

Your Live It Forward Mastermind includes:

Weekly Mastermind Zoom Sessions

We meet weekly to dive deeply into topics like personal development, investing in our families, business success, financial freedom, multiple streams of income, and personal impact and influence.

Expert Q&A

We regularly invite experts to join us to focus on specific topics. These are not just expert interviews, these are expert Q&A sessions where members get to ask questions. Our experts include speakers, authors, business leaders, family experts, fitness leaders, and more. Topics include financial freedom, multiple streams of income, real estate, business development, spirituality, and family life.

Opportunity Seat — Personal "Next-Step" Sessions

Perhaps the most valuable element of the Live It Forward Mastermind is when we focus exclusively on you and your needs. An Opportunity Seat session is your chance to share your greatest challenges and roadblocks to achieving what matters most to you. In turn, you receive insight, strategies, and guidance from people who are committed to the same kind of goals as you, who embrace the same core values, and who are committed to seeing you succeed. These "next-step" sessions require honesty, vulnerability, and courage, but they are also one of the most rewarding and growth-oriented opportunities you'll ever experience.

As a side note, you'll grow just as much from helping other mastermind members during their Opportunity Seat sessions as you will through experiencing it yourself. This one of the powers of a mastermind!
