Having the right business mindset is crucial for business success

Finally! Someone Cuts Through All the Bullsh*t and Shows You How to Actually Take Your Business to the Next Level…

I’m going to be completely honest with you here…there is a lot of crap out there on how to grow your business, make more money and have free time to enjoy your life….I know, because I have bought some of that crap!

Let me ask you a few questions:

Are you feeling overworked, stressed, and do you struggle to get everything done?

Are you avoiding doing things you know you should do (e.g. sales call, marketing on social media, invoicing clients)

Do you feel like you are always at the office, working late at night and weekends too?

Do you lay awake in bed at night, stressing about everything that needs to get done or where the next client is coming from?

Are the strategies you’re using just not working and you feel like you’re a mouse running in a wheel – legs going full tilt but you’re actually going nowhere?

Or maybe you are getting results BUT they’re not coming as quickly or as easily as you’d like.

If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions then keep reading, as this is definitely for you…

In 2003 I was working in my first small start up business, the bills were piling up and we were having trouble paying the rent (there wasn’t always food on the table, no fun when you’re the bread winner and supporting your wife through University…)

Working at my small card table (borrowed from my parents) on a pile of messy papers in a cramped corner of a tiny bedroom I realised that my business was going nowhere and something had to change.

Have you ever had a turning point in your life where you realised something had to change?This was one of my moments, I found a Business Coach, who became my mentor and eventually my partner working on business deals together.  He had modeled his business on two of Australia’s well known Billionaire’s and he shared all of their secrets with me.

He also taught me that you can have all the strategies in the world, but if you don’t work on your mindset then the strategies won’t help you much.

If you look at your business results right now I reckon there’s one of three things going on:

  1. You know what to do but you’re not doing it
  2. You don’t know what to do (frustrating hey!)
  3. You know what to do and you’re doing it, but you want better results, faster

What if I told you there was a silver bullet to solve all 3 of these problems in one hit?

You see I’ve helped my mentor run events over the past 6 years that have done this and more.  From allowing a simple plumber to double his profit year on year on year, through to a brand new business going nationwide in Australia turning over millions of dollars in under 5 years (which in the cut throat business environment the Aussies have is no mean feat).

How does he do it?

By simply focusing on two things: Mindset and Mastermind.

So why are these two together so uniquely powerful, and what does it mean for you?

Having the right business mindset is crucial for business success

Having the right mindset is absolutely crucial for business success

Mindset is your thoughts, your habits, your beliefs, everything that goes on in your mind and what flows from your mind.  When you think about it like this it make sense, if you don’t think the right thoughts, you won’t take the right actions and you definitely won’t get the right results!

Sometimes people get hung up on Mindset and “Thinking Positive” and it has a bit of a bad rap.  But what you may not know is that psychologist and author Barbara Fredrickson from the University of Carolina has done research and published papers that show that thinking more positively improves your relationships,  your happiness and most importantly your results.

If you look at many of the richest and most successful people you will see this too, take Richard Branson when he started he had:

  • No Resources
  • Was Completely Unknown

He went on to create one of the worlds most known (and respected) brands simply by using Vision and Belief put into Action (which all flows from Mindset.)

Sir Richard Branson also believes in the power of a Mastermind and has them on his private island Necker. I know because a friend of mine, Katie, has spent a week with Sir Richard there in a Mastermind group with him.

What are Masterminds Anyway and Why are they so powerful?

Napolean Hill coined the term Mastermind in his book Think and Grow Rich – which is an amazing book on exactly how to create wealth while helping others and I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it.

Masterminds are a powerful way to take your business to the next level

Masterminds are a powerful way to take your business to the next level

A Mastermind is a group of individuals who come together to solve problems or come up with creative ideas, taking advantage of the collective knowledge, experience and wisdom.

They work because when you group with other successful people they’ve done what you are planning to do, they know the pitfalls and they know the secrets to avoiding them and taking advantage of easy wins.

Masterminds have been crucial for our business, especially when you’re struggling through an issue, for example “Is there a way out of this, can I really trade my way out of this situation?” Having someone who has “been there, done that” can show you:

a) It’s Possible and;

b) How to do it

You can easily create a mastermind yourself, but make sure you choose carefully who you have in your group, and how you run it.  With poor members you get poor ideas and if you don’t run the group properly then it can quickly turn into a bitch session or go nowhere useful.

When I first started in business I had no one around me to mastermind with, everyone either had a job or knew not much more about business than I did.  Still I sat down with friends who were in business and asked them what they recommended, they were more than willing to share this with me (but a little surprised that I’d asked!)

Fortunately today Kim and I have an amazing network of business owners, from Australia, throughout New Zealand and around the world.  And today I’d like to offer you the opportunity to join that network and increase what is possible for you and your business.

Introducing "Mindset and Mastermind"

Last years Business Breakthrough event got raving reviewsLast year we ran an event called Business Breakthrough Intensive, it was an amazing event and the feedback was phenomenal.  The attendees raved about the quality of the seminar and the attendees – in fact many went on to become friends on Facebook and to continue supporting each other.

This year we’re taking it to the next level by running a one day event Mindset and Mastermind which is made up of two halves.  The first half is all about Mindset – finding those blocks that are limiting you and removing them.  The second half is a Mastermind – solving your specific problems and challenges in your business and coming up with new and creative business ideas.

Focusing on your mindset we’ll look at what makes you tick, why you get the results you do – and how you can change those pesky results you don’t want.  

We’ll cover specifically:

  • What Mindset is and how to have a clear vision of Yours
  • 3 Ways to Change Your Mindset (so you can avoid defeating yourself and getting in your own way and self sabotaging)
  • Decide what your new mindset will be (+we’ll give you our best mindset building blocks to drive your results into the stratosphere)

One of my best friends at High School was walking through the staff room and overheard the vice principal talking about me “Ahhhh yes Andrew Baird, Minimum Effort, Maximum Result”, for years this was my dirty little secret, that I was lazy and an under achiever.

For you however this is actually a really big benefit because I can’t stand the way most people teach just Repetition as THE technique to changing Mindset.  I’m going to show you multiple ways to change your Mindset and some shortcuts almost no-one knows exist (and even fewer teach!)

Repititon is not the ONLY way to change your mindset. There are shortcuts I can show you.

Repetiton is not the ONLY way to change your mindset. There are shortcuts I can show you.

In the afternoon we’ll get into the specifics of what you need to DO in your business to get different results.  Whether it’s creating a new product, making more sales calls, outsourcing boring work you hate.  You can draw on the experience of the collective and discover easier and more powerful ways to create your ideal business.  We’ll include:

  • Specific time to talk about your business (how much you share is entirely up to you, but the more you share the more you’ll get out of this part of the event)
  • The groups feedback on what you don’t know you don’t know and where you’re lost in the forest (can’t see the wood for the trees)
  • Feedback from Kim and I – a half day consult with one of us is $2000 so this is massive value (don’t worry the price of the event is nothing like this!)

One of the reasons we charge so much (compared to others in NZ – one of our mentors charges over $11k for a half day consult) is because we’re different than many coaches.  We don’t believe in “one size fits all” solutions, we like to give you options and choices (after all it’s your business) and we aim to tailor these to best suit you.

Plus I think it’s a little egotistical to tell your clients “It’s my way or the highway”, of course if there is one best solution in our opinion we’ll let you know that too!

How Much, that’s the big question right?

Masterminds are high end events, our mentors run and attend events running anywhere from $5k – $65k (and beyond!)  But as I mentioned above you won’t be paying anything like that.

First though I want you to work out what this event is worth to you.  Take your annual turnover and add 10% – that’s an easy target to hit.  Add some new clients, optimise your current ones or increase their average purchase size or frequency.  Done.

From that I can hope you see exactly how (and why) people pay so much for these events year in and year out.  Of course there’s another of my mentors secrets that we’ll let you in on which may just transform your life forever – in fact I’m going to tell you now.

“Turnover is Vanity, Net Profit is Sanity”

We want you to focus on increasing your profits – and preferably by a lot more than 10%.  Whether it’s money issues (we’ll work on that mindset issue) or the fact that most people are running around trying to avoid a profit (again it’s all in your head!) the fact is that:

Profit Goes In Your Pocket – Turnover Doesn’t!

I want you to have a business that makes all your time, all your effort, WORTH it.  And that’s not just from happy clients, happy staff and work that you’re passionate about (if you don’t have these we can talk about this too) but it’s also about getting PAID for it, and paid well.

There is nothing wrong with money, except the thought that there is something wrong with money.  [read that sentence twice or more -and think about what you believe, are you really okay with money?  If you are, and you have the strategies to get it then you should have all the money you need….if not then I’d love to help you get this sorted]

Face it if you have too much money – you can always give some away.  We do, thousands to charities each and every year.

Or you could buy a house in zone for the school you want to send your son or daughter to, or retire earlier and take a round the world photography trip.  Money simply magnifies your personal power, if you’re a good person you’ll do more good, both for you and those around you.

This event is going to challenge you in a good way, and if you come and play full out then I want your life to Never Be The Same Again.  I’ve done it, I’ve helped others do it, and I want to help you do it too.

Mindset & Mastermind is a one day event on Saturday February 16th

Running from 8:30am to 5:30pm in Auckland, NZ.  There will be only 25 attendees because we want time to deal with your specific questions – if you’re shy and only want to share a little that’s okay too, it’s entirely up to you, no-one goes in the hot seat unless they want to!

Because it’s the first one we’re running in NZ and we want people to experience the value they provide before shelling out the big dollars for one.

(BTW they really are worth it, we’ve flown to Colorado to attend a mastermind and spent tens of thousands in flights as well as the cost of the event – it was so good we went back again, and we’re not the only ones flying to this event multiple times)

Going forward we’ll be running these events for $1,000 (btw international attendees are welcome, we got great feedback from Andrea who attended our last event flying in from Australia) BUT for this first time one we’re going to do a very special deal:

Just $497 incl GST


100% Money Back Guarantee

Absolutely No Risk to You!

We also have a money back guarantee – if you’re not happy we’ll refund the price of your ticket.  If we’re not a good match then we don’t want your money, I know that seems a little crazy but we’ve reached that point in business where we can afford to put the risk all on us – instead of on you.


But that’s not all – we absolutely love to over deliver:

  • Lunch is included (this is so you can network and mastermind with other attendees instead of having to run off and hunt for some lunch – please do let us know if you have any special dietary requirements)
  • 1 Month of our exclusive Kaizen Inner Circle program – normally $247 but for you absolutely free
  • Plus our Brand New Social Media Marketing Product that shows you exactly what you need to do on Facebook and LinkedIn to grow your clients and business using Social Media

Total Value of Gifts is $384!




If you know this event is for you…please don’t hesitate

What Makes This Event Different?

Yes! I want to attend the 1 Day Live Business Breakthrough Mastermind Event




 Remember this Event is perfect for you if:

  • You are a committed business owner that wants to take your business to the next level, whether that is through freeing up more time, making more profit, or both!
  • You are feeling completely over worked, are struggling to even get a little bit of down time to relax or have any time to spend with your friends and family…if this you, this event will give you clarity, direction and show you solutions that will free up your time fast!
  • Maybe you are feeling flat and stuck at the same level of clients and money in your business for too long. You need a change and are ready for the challenge of creating a bigger and better business.
  • You know the Inner Game of Success is holding you back, you’re defeating yourself by not making sales calls, not marketing, simply not doing the things you need to do (please join us and get this problem under control!)

What if I can’t make this date?

If you truly can’t make this date then please get in touch to ask about the next available intake BUT make sure you’re not just making excuses.  If you don’t have the money make some more sales to get the money (if you don’t know how let us know we’ll help you close more sales and make money so you can attend).

Back when we were really struggling I was part of a Mastermind and we were having a follow up day, many people didn’t make it because “they didn’t have money or time”. I could have easily used this excuse as well but I cleared my schedule, convinced some people to let me stay with them (I couldn’t afford accomodation costs) and used airpoints to fly there.

If you’re struggling and you don’t think you can ever be good enough or make it, don’t worry I’ve been there and I’d love to have the chance to help you get over it.
