Are You Already A Successful, Independent Retailer Ready To Take Your Business (and your life!) To The Next Level?


If you answered “yes,” the Platinum Mastermind Group may be exactly what you need!

If you are reading this… Congratulations! You are considering taking a big step that will forever change the course of your business and your life. 

The first question most people ask when trying to determine if the Platinum Mastermind Group is a good fit is…


What is the Platinum Mastermind Group?

The Platinum Mastermind Group is an intimate group of already successful independent retailers who support each other, encourage each other, share ideas and best practices, push each other, challenge each other, and hold each other accountable. Napoleon Hill explained it this way when he first introduced the concept of the “Master Mind” in his book, Think and Grow Rich:

“Economic advantages may be created by any person who surrounds himself with the advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of a group of people who are willing to lend him wholehearted aid, in a spirit of PERFECT HARMONY. This form of cooperative alliance has been the basis of nearly every great fortune. Your understanding of this great truth may definitely determine your financial status.”

I love that idea of “perfect harmony,” don’t you?

Why Do People Join?

Most people join for one of three reasons:

1. You join because you understand you need new perspectives to grow. You know that what got you to where you are is not enough to get you where you want to go, and you understand you need to broaden your views and open new levels of understanding.

2. You join for strategies and tools. Your sales have plateaued and you know there is potential to do a lot more, but can’t seem to find what you need to kick start the next surge of growth.

3. You join for collaboration, inspiration, and support. You have a successful business that you love but are frustrated because nobody – not even your friends and family – really “gets” what you’re going through, and you need a safe place to be yourself and feel free to share your thorniest problems or your biggest, craziest dreams. The stuff you don’t want to discuss at your Chamber of Commerce, with the business owner next door and your employees.

If this sounds like you, imagine what it will be like to tap into the collective wisdom of me, Susan, and this amazing group of retail business owners.

Here is the Platinum Mastermind Group Experience, as described by our members: 


“Within 3 months of joining the Platinum Mastermind Group, I made back my year’s investment.”

Bob Zechel, Cloud 9 Pajamas

Here are the details:

  1. We meet three times per year, for two and a half days each time. These meetings are intimate and intense. We share exactly what’s working in our businesses and what our challenges are. Plus, we brainstorm how to multiply the good stuff, and how to eliminate the bad stuff.
  2. Susan and I personally host the meetings and run the group. This means you have direct access to both of us. You get to tap into our collective 60 years of experience working in our own retail business, and from working with thousands of independent retailers like you.
  3. In the months when we’re not meeting, we have monthly Mastermind Calls where we stay in touch, and where you can tap into the wisdom of the group (including me and Susan!) in real time.
  4. We have a Platinum Mastermind Group private Facebook page. Think about being able to ask for feedback on an idea or for help solving a problem and getting instant feedback from me, Susan and all the other brilliant retailers who know you and your business intimately in your mastermind. This access is priceless.
  5. Three times a year you get a private, one-on-one check-in call with me or Susan. These calls are used for coaching, brainstorming, problem-solving, and accountability. Susan and I love to dig deep into your business to help you grow.
  6. You and as many staff members as you care to bring may come to the Retail Success Summit and get priority seating, absolutely free of charge. This is a great way to get your staff fired up and on the same page about how you’re thinking about your business!

What is the investment?

Membership is $1000 a month for 12 months. But, you’ll get two months free if you pay up front.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is an annual membership. This is not a “monthly subscription” program. We are only interested in people who are going to commit their time and energy to the group for the full year. 

Important Note #2: If you would like your spouse or business partner to also be a member, the second person’s membership is only half price.

Important Note #3: This group is by invitation only and you have to apply to be considered.

This is not for everyone…

The Mastermind Experience is intense. You will be pushed out of your comfort zone, challenged to think bigger and forced to think about things in new and interesting ways. If you are comfortable with things the way they are and aren’t looking for something bigger for yourself, the Platinum Mastermind Group is not for you.

The Platinum Mastermind Group is an investment. Not only do you invest in your membership, you also invest in travel and you invest your time. If your business doesn’t generate the cash to make the trips possible and your business can’t afford to lose you when you’re gone the Platinum Mastermind Group is not for you.


If you are ready to invest in yourself and your future by challenging how you think, the way you run your business and your beliefs about running a successful business and you are ready to grow your sales and profits in ways you never considered before, joining the Platinum Mastermind Group will be one of the most interesting, stimulating and profit generating things you’ll ever do.

I look forward to seeing your application!
