THE 2018 DREAM BUILDERS
MASTERMIND CIRCLE
for visionary women entrepreneurs


Chicago    |    Atlanta

Here's your opportunity to grow your business and make more money doing work that you love in a supportive community of like-minded people. 
 

Dear Visionary Woman Entrepreneur,

Imagine having the business and life of your dreams—the flexibility to have control over your own time and making money doing the work you love—with support and encouragement from other entrepreneurs who understand your vision and are willing to help you to make it happen. Wouldn't that be amazing? What would that mean for you?


Currently, you are probably doing it alone. And instead of being the CEO of the business of your dreams and living the life you desire, you are feeling…

  • Isolated because many people in your current circles dont "get" or support what you are trying to do
  •  Discouraged because your cash flow is inconsistent, and you know that you can help people with what you have to offer
  • Overwhelmed and lacking clarity on the next steps you to need to take to get your business to the next level
  • Frustrated with yourself because you are tired of procrastinating, sitting on your creative ideas, and not seeing the growth in your business that you know you are capable of 

Sound familiar?

It doesn't have to be this way.  You don't have to do this all by yourself.

It's time.  Time to develop a strategic plan to implement your creative ideas, make more money, and put the systems in place that will allow you to work smarter and not harder. It's time to finally start making consistent money you can count on while serving the world at the level you've been called to. You're ready to do this.

Before I tell you more about The Dream Builders Mastermind Circle, let me introduce myself…

Hi, I'm Laura Knights, a life and business strategist and the founder of The Dream Builders Mastermind Circle. For the last six years, I've used my unique background in business, social work, and program development to help entrepreneurs package their expertise for profit using the same strategies I've used to "productize" my own skills and create a six-figure business. I'm head-over-heels in love with helping passionate women entrepreneurs implement a system to turn their skills into dollars.

In my coaching work, I've met so many women who are powerful beyond measure, but for many reasons are not fully aware of or accepting of that power. I created The Dream Builders Mastermind Circle to provide a safe and supportive space for women entrepreneurs like you to get the accountability, support, encouragement, and coaching to build their dream business and life--all while surrounded by a community of like-minded people that genuinely want to see you win.

My passion is to help visionary women entrepreneurs like you... 

  • Gain clarity about the exact business direction, offerings, and ideal clients that will help you maximize your revenue potential in the marketplace
  • Develop a comprehensive strategic plan, with action steps and timelines, so you can leverage opportunity areas in your business where you can produce the biggest results in the shortest amount of time
  • Discover new ways to use your expertise to create additional money streams in your business
  • Nurture yourself physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally while you grow your business
  • Awaken your power, grow your confidence, and walk boldly in your God-given purpose and vision
  • Create a supportive non-competitive community to hold you accountable to the vision you have for your life , and to support you in the midst of life’s challenges as you move forward to accomplish that vision

Let's grow your business TOGETHER!

In addition to the retreat, your investment also includes:

FIVE MONTHLY IN-PERSON TRAINING SESSIONS

The first half of our monthly in-person half day session is devoted to our training modules. The monthly training modules are a critical component of the program, and provide the knowledge-base to assist members with their individual business goals.  Training content includes:

FIVE MONTHLY IN-PERSON MASTERMIND SESSIONS

The second half of our monthly in-person half day sessions is devoted to our powerful mastermind component. In "Think & Grow Rich," Napoleon Hill defined a Mastermind as "the coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony."

You'll  use your own dedicated timeslot at each monthly session (February - June) to share business challenges you are facing and receive feedback from  your peers and I.  You’ll leave each session with a a set of specific action steps to move your business plan forward. 

Having the "collective mind" of me and your fellow Dream Builders, who will each bring their own skills and expertise, is a powerful experience that allows you to use the synergy of the group to quickly determine your next steps to move your business forward.

FIVE ONE-ON-ONE PHONE STRATEGY SESSIONS

Your investment includes individual laser coaching via five 60-minute sessions you can use anytime during the program to further personalize the training content to your business. In these sessions, we'll dive deeper into the specific tactics and strategies to grow your unique business.  We will craft specific action steps to help you leverage the opportunity areas in your business where you can produce the biggest results in the shortest amount of time.
 

SIX EASY ACTION IMPLEMENTATION GUIDES

Starting with the retreat, you will receive an easy action implementation guide after each training session. These quick-reference guides provide a user-friendly step-by-step format to help you implement the training material in your business right away.

FIVE "IN-BETWEEN" ACCOUNTABILITY CALLS

Accountability is EVERYTHING in the Dream Builders Community!  These virtual conference calls and Facebook Live sessions with Laura will help you stay on track to complete your action steps in between meetings.

ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

Did I say accountability is EVERYTHING?! Iron sharpens iron! You will also be connected with a dedicated accountability partner from your group that will provide more intense one-on-one support during the entire six-month process.  The expectation is that you will check in with your accountability partner virtually or in-person at least one time per month.

UNLIMITED EMAIL SUPPORT

You’ll receive unlimited email support from me via my secure online client portal throughout the six-month program  so you are supported every step of the way!

Testimonials from recent
Dream Builders Mastermind Circle participants:

  • When I joined Dream Builders,  I was confused and feeling powerless. I really needed help with gaining confidence and packaging my services. Laura helped me to gain confidence, organize accordingly, and confidently price my offerings. I made back my full Dream Builders investment from one paid speaking engagement using the strategies that I learned while working with Laura! And over the course of the program, I made five times my Dream Builder investment from new offerings I created while in the program!

  • Being in corporate America all my life, I had no idea how to shift from someone’s employee to running my own business. Laura taught me how to combine my years of nursing with massage therapy to make my business something people wanted to invest in as a lifestyle change. Now, I’m working less as a nurse and more in my company. I’ve decreased to only working in the hospital 1-2 times per month because my massage therapy clientele has increased!

  • Before Dream Builders, I was feeling lost.  I really needed help with knowing how to grow my business.  After working with Laura, I  have what it takes to scale my business.  I hired two staff members, and delegated administrative tasks I'm keeping up with my numbers, and I've developed systems that allow me to spend less time working IN the business. I'm more confident, and I feel that I'm on the right track.

  • When I joined Dream Builders,  I was a little lost. I really needed help with aligning my business to the market, ideal clients, and positive cash flow. Laura helped me to get a hold of my business.  I have a better understanding of my sales and marketing systems, and I feel better prepared for the days ahead.

  • Dream Builders stretched me to  realize my fullest potential.  Efficient Estates was simply a tool in our tax strategy when I joined the community.  We evolved into a brand as a result of my participation in the program. The most valuable asset had to be the systems that Laura pushed us to develop.  When properly implemented, htose systems run our business for us.

  • Prior to joining Dream Builders, I had not considered having a coach nor did I see the value of it. I’ve experienced so much growth…especially in my confidence. I was able to enhance my offerings so I didn’t leave any loopholes in my services. I have had a lot of success…I went from not booking any clients to booking clients and getting regular repeat clients, and even some monthly retainers.

THE INVESTMENT

Show me an entrepreneur who doesn't invest in herself, and I'll show you an entrepreneur struggling to get others to pay for her services. Investing in yourself translates to the energy and customers you attract to your business.

To get this level of positive impact on your business, you could do one-on-one coaching for the same cost but with much less components and value than what is included in the Dream Builders Mastermind Circle.  And there are untold costs to struggling to figure everything out on your own. I wanted to make this option affordable for you, yet jam-packed with so much value for your investment.


You may be saying...

“Am I ready for this?” 

“I‘m too busy to commit right now.”

“I can’t afford it.”

It’s so easy to trap yourself in the “too busy” or the “I can’t afford it” cycle. If you don’t do anything different, nothing is going to change. You’re going to stay busy, unfulfilled, and struggling.

But you CAN break out of this cycle. 

You must invest some time and money into yourself to grow your business and give yourself a chance to really do this at the level you dream about. You’ve got to invest in yourself to create a viable and profitable business model. The only person who’s going to make your business vision a reality is YOU and it starts here. Its starts now.

More Testimonials from Dream Builders:

  • When I joined Dream Builders, I was feeling overwhelmed. I really needed help with moving beyond analysis paralysis. After working with Laura ,I realized the need to staff up and accelerate the transition from solopreneur to President of a full-fledged firm. Being in a supportive environment has been very helpful. Also, being held accountable for my goals has been valuable. Knowing that I would be reporting progress to the group provided motivation for me to accomplish tasks.

     

    Shauna Cox, President, QurityTech

    • Being a Dream Builder helped me to restore my confidence. I now have a clearer direction in my business offerings, and a clear picture of how to add more revenue to my business from integrating corporate consulting. 

       

       

      Jacqueline Carson, President, Temple Fitness

    • When I started Dream Builders,  I really needed help with organizing my many thoughts into action steps. Laura helped me to make sense this. I’ve gained clarity! I've grown more confident in not just myself but in my capabilities as an entrepreneur. I learned that there's nothing I can NOT accomplish once I set a goal and set a date to achieve that goal.  

       

       Alisha D. Harris, Illinois Real Estate Broker

  • After joining Dream Builders, I began to develop a sense of confidence in my ability to achieve greatness. Being able to truly tap into my unique qualities and learn how to exel from innate abilities is something I learned how to do while being a part of this group. You can't really put a price on that.

     

    Vanessa Abron, Media Relations Maven

    • I’ve had a ton of growth since I joined Dream Builders. I have a clear business plan, and a clear awareness of how to make money in my business. Dream Builders is a really smart move if you are an entrepreneur. It’s home away from home with like-minded people. It will change your life and your business. 

       

      Janice Gonzalez, Tall District
    • When I joined Dream builders, I really needed help with focus and consistency. One of my biggest lessons is that I really needed to pay attention to my self-care as I grow my business.  Laura helped me to understand systems so that I could feel good about the potential of my business.
