Finding Community and Accountability as a Business Owner


Do you ever feel isolated running your business?

Are you on your own to figure out new systems and overcome endless obstacles? 

Do you ever wish there were a group of like-minded people to share your goals and objectives with and be held accountable to them?

Then a Mastermind Group might be exactly what you’re looking for. A Mastermind Group is a regular meeting of business owners or key employees that are traveling the same road as you are. Some may be a little ahead of you and some might be a little behind you, but everyone is on the same journey to the same place. Success. 

  • It’s a place to:

-       Share Ideas
-       Set Goals
-       Be held Accountable
-       Be inspired
-       Share your story
-       Gain Perspective
-       Help others

Every other week you meet with 7-10 other business owners who have a company similar to yours. You are placed in a group that closest resembles your business, with similar structure, goals, and finances, so that common problems and conversation threads stay relevant and desirable to all. This team serves as your advisory board. The meetings are hosted by a facilitator to guide the discussion and make sure all voices are heard and respected. The professional conversation style is direct and honest, building on the trust you develop as a team, while also allowing for unique perspectives and insights.

At every meeting, you will: 

      Discuss a pre-determined topic for 30-45 minutes.

      Have time to unpack a current issue, challenge, or initiative that you are working through and would like some feedback on from your advisory board.

      Set personal or business-related goals

      Provide and receive feedback on your goals, which is part of your accountability! 

Meetings are conducted through video conferencing utilizing Zoom at a set time and day of the week consistently. Everyone knows that we master what we measure, and consistent participation builds trust and respect that affords us the greatest return on our time. 

Meetings always begin at 3pm ET and last for 90 minutes. This means you will meet for 24 meetings per year, giving you many opportunities for improvement in your own life and business, as well as providing mutual support and accountability to your fellow team members. 


Not sure there is a group for you? Below is a quick synopsis of the four Mastermind sessions we conduct and a brief description of each group. While no business looks exactly like yours, the wise owner knows there is wisdom in a fresh perspective gained looking from the outside in.

  • 1. Emerging

o   Do you own a young or underdeveloped business?
o   Do you need help with some of the fundamentals to keep you on your upward trajectory?
o   Emerging Contractors with revenue from 0-$750,000 will benefit from the facilitation and focus that C4C coach Mark Black brings to every meeting to help make your next steps a reality.

2. Death Valley

o   Are you trying to break through $1,000,000 and beyond?  This can be one of the most difficult phases in the growth of your business. Taking part in a community of like-minded entrepreneurs may be the spark you need.
o   This group is for those with the drive to shatter the $1,000,000 barrier and beyond.
o   Are you driven? Do you crave intensity? This group is for you.

3.  Growth

o   Are you on the other side of Death Valley? Have you caught your breath and are ready for the next summit?
o   This is a fun season that gives you the challenges of new opportunities and bigger decisions. This group will be an excellent sounding board for your ideas and continued growth.
o   The Growth Mastermind Group is for those with annual sales in the $2,000,000-$4,000,000+ range.  

4. Admin and OPS

o   Do you have key Administrative or operations personnel? Give them the gift of a Mastermind to stretch and improve themselves. They’ll receive feedback on best practices from others that are immersed in the same day-to-day activities as they are. Often our key personnel are overlooked in development. This provides an opportunity to accelerate their growth and add value to your business!
