Insight, Clarity and Community!
Join us in Kauai for a 
Mastermind Experience
like no other!
Who Are We?

We are an international group of publishing and marketing experts and consultants.  While most of us are #1 international bestselling authors, members specialize in various areas including publishing, product creation, online marketing, livecasting, social media, productivity, and more!  Members have a breadth of experience from the corporate and entrepreneurial worlds as well.


What Should You Expect?

Four amazing days of masterminding with some of the sharpest minds in publishing and internet marketing, combined with fun surprises and incredible food from our private chef.  You will have the opportunity to present your current business challenge or idea in a "hot seat," where you become the center of attention for the entire group.  Let us brainstorm on your behalf to help you find the best solution.

Stellar Community!

You are smart, but you aren't the smartest person in the room.  No one person is smarter than the collective mastermind!  Come benefit from the collective wisdom of the group and contribute your experience and expertise as well!  You won't leave the retreat with a collection of scattered thoughts and ideas.  You will leave with a plan, built with the help of the mastermind!


PO'IPU
Located on the southeast portion of Kauai, Poipu is in the sun belt of Kauai and has near-perfect weather all year round. As a result, the area is home to  Kauai's most luxurious resorts and beaches along with a wonderful assortment of shops, restaurants and outdoor activities.
THE GARDEN ISLE
Known as the Garden Isle, the lush island of Kauai receives only a fraction of the visitors that the other islands receive.  This makes for a quiet experience far away from the tourist crush of Oahu and Maui.  Kauai receives more rainfall than the other islands, resulting in lush rainforest and pristine waterfalls.  The terrain varies from  the soft, accessible beaches of the south coast to the steep cliffs of the Na' Pili coast and the dizzying heights of the Waimea Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.

October 6-11, 2021
The event will start Wednesday October 6th and continue until departure on October 11.  Mastermind time begins Thursday at 9 AM and will conclude Sunday evening.  We will have surprise activities and great food throughout!
Po'ipu Kai Resort
Our refuge for this retreat includes three luxury condos within walking distance of several of Kauai's finest beaches!  We will have nearly 6000 sq. ft. of private space along with access to pools, hot tubs, tennis courts, snorkeling, surfing, restaurants and more! 
Space is Limited!
This is an intimate event limited to 14 attendees.  Members of the Business Accelerator Group are given the first opportunity to register.  Non-member registration begins 2 weeks later on a space-available basis.  Register today!
What's Included?

Amazing Mastermind Sessions

A substantial portion of our time is spent learning from each other.  Each member brings a list of topics they would like the group to address.  These topics can be business challenges, ideas, new strategies and more.  We work through these topics as the event progresses.  When challenges are presented, we usually find several members in the group have already encountered and overcome these challenges.  When new strategies are presented, we work together to refine and improve these strategies.

Business-Changing Hot Seats

Put the brain trust to work for you!  As an attendee, you have the opportunity to take the Hot Seat!  We will set aside time for you to present a unique problem, question, or business idea that is impacting your business right now.  Then the entire mastermind group goes to work, analyzing your issue and presenting alternatives!  Most of our consultants charge hundreds of dollars an hour for their time.  In the Hot Seat, you get their undivided attention for free!  You will want to record your Hot Seat because most attendees find this single experience to be worth the cost of the entire trip.

Cutting Edge Presentations

At each retreat, we tap key members to present the very latest and greatest from their areas of expertise.  Many times, we learn tools and strategies that are just hitting the market, placing our group well ahead of the curve.  Past events have seen presentations on Livecasting tools, how to create a bestselling book, outsourcing secrets, social media contests, Facebook advertising, expert videography, and much more.  The presentations are always engaging and immediately actionable!

Amazing Fun!

The brain works best with a combination of work and play.  Ideas discussed in the mastermind sessions often germinate during the many surprise activities we plan.  Previous surprises have included winery tours, whale watching, twilight cocktail parties in the redwoods, dancing demonstrations, violin concerts, behind-the-scenes tours, eco excursions and more!  All activities are kept under wraps until the "reveal" at the retreat!  Come see what surprises await!

Incredible Food!

Using unique recipes, our gourmet chef, Amanda, creates wonderful meals and desserts.  One of the high points of each day is the "reveal" Amanda gives as she presents each entree.  Attendees literally "ooh and ahh" as she describes each item and how it has been prepared.  All meals and drinks at the condo are included!  Have a special dietary need?  We have you covered.  We even send out a special questionnaire in advance to discover your favorite beverages, adult or otherwise!

And much more!

You never know what awaits you at the mastermind retreat.  You may meet a new business partner, create a strategic relationship, or discover the big idea that propels your business forward.  Think about it!  What is the value of just one idea?  Just one idea has the potential to completely change your business, and, therefore, your life!  We have seen entire product lines dreamed up over lunch.  We have seen new businesses created over a bottle of wine.  What is in store for you?
