Ready to make some significant shifts?

If so, you’ve come to the right place – and I’m delighted you are here.

Having participated in several different masterminds myself AND having coached masterminds every single month for the past 17 years, I know that participating in a high-quality, interactive group has the potential to be an incredibly powerful, expansive experience – both personally and professionally.

This group of creative professionals
meets in Burbank, CA
from 10am – 12:30pm
on the second Thursday of each month

Answers to your questions – click on the images below to watch each video:

Thanks to the internet, finding excellent guidance and consuming it by the bucketload is easy…

…but, lasting transformation is not a result of getting excellent guidance, it is a result of applying excellent guidance.

I created the Inspired Action Mastermind so that we could work together regularly in a stimulating, positive environment to actively apply the guidance you’ve been gathering. You’ll receive strategic coaching from me and genuine support from like-minded colleagues – all to help you shift to your next levels of success and fulfillment.

If your gut is whispering that this group might just be the right thing at the right time for you, then I hope to see you soon.

Let’s turn your effort into ease…

The Inspired Action Mastermind was created to provide an anchor for your month – a positive, supportive environment where you can step back from the avalanche of daily details and examine your life and career from a big-picture perspective… a perspective from which you can gain clarity, make plans, request help, receive coaching, celebrate accomplishments, and share information.

Too often folks find themselves pursuing their goals in a somewhat solitary environment… or they find themselves with friends and loved ones who don’t quite understand the challenges of juggling all of the moving parts of their businesses and creative endeavors.

On top of that, it’s so easy for the days in L.A. to slip on by… which can be torturous for ambitious professionals with a strong desire to continue making significant shifts in their lives and careers.

Having a “home base” where your proactivity and progress are acknowledged and appreciated will help you maintain your momentum – especially whenever your road gets a bit rocky.

If you are willing to bet (even bigger) on yourself, IAM is here to help you win that bet.

Our meetings last 2.5 hours.

When you join the group, you will receive a welcome packet – in the actual mail!

In that packet, you will receive a Meeting Guide which will describe the structure of our meetings and help you assemble your thoughts so you will be able to communicate with clarity, brevity, and vitality.

May I audit the group?

IAM is for smart, capable, creative professionals in any field – even those in transition from one career to another.

Members can easily communicate between meetings by email via our Google Group. Also, all members have access to their fellow member’s contact info.

We meet on the second Thursday of every month.

The meeting dates for 2017 are:

March 9
April 13
May 11
June 8
July 13
August 10
September 14
October 12
November 9
December 14

There are 3 enrollment periods per year when new members can join:

in February (with your first meeting being in March)
in June (with your first meeting being in July)
in October (with your first meeting being in November)

You may keep your seat in an IAM group as long as you’d like – at least one full year is highly recommended.

We meet from 10am – 12:30pm.

Doors open at 9:30am.

Members are welcome to use the 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after each meeting to connect with each other.

And it’s fine if you need to show up late or leave early.

Our meetings are held at a lovely location in Burbank.

Ample free parking.

During your first year in the group, you will receive 3 valuable bonus gifts:


How to Plan a Leap Year
I will walk you through my “layering method” of prioritizing and planning for the personal and professional projects you want to accomplish in the next twelve months. This bonus gift includes MP3s of the audio from sessions with two of my clients so you can hear me help them create a plan that works for their actual circumstances and available resources.


Help Wanted: How to Find, Hire and Utilize a Fabulous Personal Assistant
This is a collection of my best guidance on getting the support you need (and deserve) for your life and career. This bonus gift takes you through searching for your right person to setting up the systems for a smooth relationship, including: my techniques and most effective questions for interviewing, two key “tests” to give applicants that will save you a lot of time, and how to communicate clearly to avoid misunderstandings.


Your Little Side Biz: How to Generate Concepts, Clients and Cash
This is a collection of my best guidance on how to start and build a profitable side business to support your creative pursuits. Whether you just need a little extra cashflow to float you between gigs or you actually want to create an asset that will cover your monthly nut, this program will help you make a plan, take effective action, and avoid time-and-money-wasting mistakes.

The cost of retaining your seat in the group is $60 per month.

Dues are pre-paid in 4-month increments as follows:

$240 due in February for March, April, May and June
$240 due in June for July, August, September and October
• $240 due in October for November, December, January and February

You may pay by cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, or PayPal.

Payments are not refundable…
…except if, after your very first meeting you come to the realization that you are simply “in the wrong room with the wrong people.” Engaging with a new guide and a new group always requires a leap of faith – I want to acknowledge that reality by minimizing your financial risk.  If you wish to leave the group after your first meeting, let me know and I will refund your payment (minus $36 to cover the enrollment costs).

Also, all IAM members can book private coaching sessions with me outside of our group meetings at a very special rate.

Here are your next steps:

Step One: Watch the video below.

In the video you’ll learn how I define a “focus” and how to articulate one for yourself. You will need to know this info to participate fully in IAM, plus it is a great way to get a feel for me and my approach.

(This is the first video in a series that was prepared for another project, but I thought you would find it helpful.)

Step Two: Watch the 2 videos below.

Even if you are never a part of an Inspired Action Mastermind, I want you to have access to these two videos from my Mindset Reset Program.


Because I believe that applying these particular concepts to your life is key to making the significant shifts and creating the lasting transformations that you desire.

These videos walk you though how to find and plug your mental energy leaks.

Every bit of mental energy that you prevent from being drained out of you, is energy that you retain and are thus able to direct towards the projects that YOU want to accomplish and the experiences that YOU want to enjoy.

If, after watching these videos, you do decide to join IAM, you will enter the group already sharing a common vocabulary and, over time, you will see the various Mindset Reset tools in action and learn how to apply them to different circumstances and issues in your own life.

The Mindset Reset material is not the entire content of IAM, but it’s a prime part of the foundation on which we will build.

Step Three: Read this book.

You do not have to read this book before you join IAM… but I thought I’d include it here in case you wanted to get a head start.

I would, however, like you to read it at some point during your first 4 months of membership in the group as it covers some core concepts that are in alignment with what we will be discussing in our meetings.

essentialiam greg mckeown
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown is a quick read that packs a powerful punch. It’s full of practical and applicable observations and suggestions. This book prompted me to take two immediate actions that positively impacted my life in very significant ways. I “assigned” this book to many of my clients and mastermind group members and they are finding it a treasure trove of mindset-shifting Golden Nuggets of guidance.
