Business Mastermind Networks (Group Mentoring and Coaching)
Would You Like to Find a Business Mentor or Hire a Coach / Consultant, but Think You Can't Afford One???
What if You Could Have Your Own, Experienced Business Coach on an Affordable Retainer, plus a Team of Experienced Business People Who Want to Help You Grow and Improve...
Sometimes in business it can feel like it’s you against the world and you’ve got to come up with all the answers yourself. Worse still you might not even know what questions you should be asking!
At Business Mastermind Networks, we bring together groups of positively-wired business owners to help inspire, educate and motivate each other. ‘A problem shared is a problem halved’ they say, especially when you’re surrounded by a supportive team of members, who may just have gone through the same challenges that you’re now facing. It means you can leverage your time by learning from others.
We've recently launched two new groups at Subiaco in the City and Kalamunda in the Hills of Perth, Western Australia to provide this business and life support facility for owners of local small businesses.
These Mastermind Group sessions can give you a great start to your day, leaving you feeling uplifted and encouraged, ready to grow your business and bursting with new ideas.
When are the Meetings?
The meetings are designed to be at an appropriate time and for a reasonable duration that allows sufficient time for members to meet, chat, network, brainstorm ideas and present their businesses to leverage from the group. The Subiaco and Kalamunda Mastermind Meetings are on alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively from 7.30am til 9.15 am.
Who Are These Mastermind Groups For?
- Owners of Small Businesses who seek mentoring and/or coaching; who wish to make progress, learn new skills and ideas
- People who are willing to implement changes in their business or their life to help them achieve their goals
- People who wish for some accountability - (there will be some small homework exercises!)
- People who seek human connection - We often find that business can be a lonely place, especially for solopreneurs, so this provides camaraderie that stimulates sound mental health and builds effective networks of helpful connections.
- Members with ethical values, who are willing to help others
- People with a good sense of humour (We want to have fun!)
Prospective Members can apply to join, and if accepted, will have a home base group (one of the two current groups).
Who Are These Mastermind Groups Not For?
- They are NOT for negative or objectionable people
- NOT really for people who only have a side hustle, such as a Multi-level marketing (MLM) hobby
- NOT for people who are unwilling to change and grow
- NOT for people who are unwilling to invest in themselves and in their own development
- NOT for people who are actively involved in the management of business networking groups (without prior agreement with the event organiser)
- NOT for people who expect to just turn up to some kind of speed-dating style of networking meet up, throw a bunch of business cards on the table and expect a load of new business referrals to fall in their laps and solve all their problems like some kind of magical, silver bullet!
If you're one of those people above, we can probably recommend some alternative solutions for you...
You're Still Reading? So, How Does My Business Mastermind Networks Group Work?
We will progressively work our way through a whole range of business topics, sharing skills and knowledge, building friendships and leveraging trusted connections, consistently over time. We will also relate the performance of our business to the greater context of our life goals.
It is about giving, participating, adding value to others and learning.
Referrals will follow organically, but there are no unreasonable demands made on members to hit performance targets, just for the sake of it.
A Charter of Excellence is available for genuine, prospective members, which includes a commitment to turn up, though of course we reasonably allow for enforced absences owing to holidays, sickness and so on.
Group sizes are capped at 16 members, which allows for a few absentees (sickness, holidays, life circumstances), but members can attend one of our other group meetings if seats are available. Spare seats can also be used for invited guests, who are permitted to check us out before joining. Bookings are essential.
In time, we will encourage initiatives that help community organisations or charitable causes. We are not a Rotary Group, but we do also want to help create a positive impact on Society.

Who Am I? (Your Presenter)
I’m Tony Inman, your experienced meeting facilitator. I’m also a Certified Business and Life Coach, Consultant and Mentor who has helped hundreds of business owners, executives and employees to learn and implement new ideas, skills and knowledge, growing both personally and professionally in the process. I’ve served as a Mentor At Curtin University’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, and unlike many so-called Business Coaches, I’ve actually set up over twenty businesses myself, employing hundreds of staff and generating millions of dollars in revenue.
I also believe that your business should be the vehicle that creates your ideal lifestyle - you should be running your business, rather than having your business run you!
As a reformed workaholic myself, I understand the pressures of building small businesses, facing challenges from all directions, which prompted me to write the book ‘If Life’s Worth Doing, It’s Worth Doing Well’ - a guide to finding sane fulfillment in an insane world.
All of this means that you’re in safe hands. Our groups can help you grow as a leader and manager, and help you grow your business profits and work smarter, not just harder.
