ARC Masterminds

Many creative entrepreneurs in today’s changing climate feel overwhelmed, anxious and alone in their creativity and their work. In response to this, ARC’s Sachin Khona created Mastermind groups to provide the motivation, support, insights, accountability, and tools you need to grow; setting you up to succeed within a network of small business owners determined to level-up.

What Exactly Is A Mastermind?

A Mastermind combines peer brainstorming, accountability, and support in a group setting. The goal is to create solutions, share resources and achieve success for your business. Our aim at ARC is to set you up to succeed by embedding you into a network of entrepreneurs who are just as hungry as you are to improve your businesses with smarter marketing tactics and strategies. You’ll learn to ask better questions, create sustainable solutions, build your vision, and all the while, celebrate your successes with fellow Masterminders.

“Feeling very inspired and motivated after tonight’s session and grateful to have so many incredible minds at my fingertips!” – Nisha Ravji

“It’s not like taking a boring course, the interaction with other photographers in the same boat as you is the best part. Brainstorming and bouncing ideas off each other is so important.” – Erin Fraser

Do you offer payment plans?

100%. You can pay in instalments if you prefer.
Drop us a message to discuss.

Where is it located? When are they?

All calls take place over Zoom, from the comfort of your own home or work place. We ask all attendees to schedule 2 hours off for complete focus in the Mastermind, free from distractions. We make sure the timings work for every participant before moving forward with any calls.

How is each called structured?

Each attendee will receive their Spotlight Q’s in advance. We review your responses to Spotlight responses together each session and as a group, we will brainstorm ideas and solutions for you to move forward, discussing any potential roadblocks or challenges.
This is an opportunity for you to seek advice and for the group to brainstorm and offer their support.
Together we craft a plan of action for you to take in the next week.

What is the format of each call?

Topic Presentation
Spotlight Session – 1 followed by Q&A
Spotlight Session – 2 followed by Q&A
Exercises & Actions
Q&A + Discussions
Weekly Actions + Accountability For Each Member
Meditation / Grounding Exercises are included
Includes 1 call with an Industry Leader / Mastermind Educator

What if I miss a call? What is the commitment level?

We encourage you to commit to being on all the calls, as the conversations are shaped by group participation, and it’s where the magic happens! We understand that things do come up, and will support you in catching up on the conversation afterward.
All calls are recorded for a 1 week replay to keep you on track.

Who will I be in a group with?

Each group is carefully curated to ensure that everyone is as hungry as each other to level up their business, and are ready to take a leap forwards. We value community over competition and believe there is the biggest opportunity to grow your business through supporting your fellow group members to do so too.

When is the next intake?

15 January 2021.

They both are things I want to focus on. How do I know which of the 2 is the right fit for me?

Great question. Hop on a call and we can hash out what works best for you right now, and make sure it’s in line with your goals and future. Both are valuable but timing for one over the other may make more sense for you. Let’s chat!

To your success,
