THE hope tayLor Mastermind

AN INTENSIVE 6-MONTH PROGRAM FOR CREATIVE BUSINESS OWNERS LOOKING TO SCALE THEIR BUSINESSES AND CHANGE THEIR LIVES WITH PASSIVE INCOME

I JOINED MY VERY FIRST MASTERMIND.

I spent an entire year learning from a business coach and fellow business owners who were at the same level and chasing the same dreams that I was. And none of us were even in the same industry! Through the coaching, community and education I was provided during my mastermind - my life and business completely changed. I scaled my business to six figures of passive income, moved my business across the East Coast without taking a financial loss, added members to my team and felt CONFIDENT in all of my business decisions. Having unlimited access to a community that will help provide insight on my every move, answer any question (no matter how big or small!) and help me to make the RIGHT decisions was invaluable. It was truly the most game-changing investment I had ever made. 

So, i decided to start my own! This application-only mastermind will be available to 12 business owners from Jan-June of 2021.

In my first few years of business, investing in education was SO important to my growth and success. I attended workshops, conferences, mentoring and coaching that helped me to level-up, provided me with community and gave me direction for my business. But, as my business grew, I started having a difficult time finding education for business owners that were more advanced. I understood the basics of photography and business, I knew how to market and use social media, I didn't need any more networking opportunities...so where in the heck was I supposed to go next? Then, in my 6th year of business, I started to feel so alone and frustrated. I was making EVERY business decision myself with zero guidance and very little community. So, I did something that changed the GAME for me.

"Hope's mastermind has been one of the greatest investments I've ever made in my business!"

– Rebecca

"The Hope Taylor Mastermind was EXACTLY what our business needed! For months, we'd been feeling stuck as we fought to grow the educational side of our business. We'd been spinning our wheels, trying every which way to grow and make real income from the educational side of our business, but nothing seemed to work. Through Hope's Mastermind, we've been able to work directly with Hope to create a real plan to make our dreams happen, determine our area of expertise as educators, and how to balance serving our students well with making real income from our knowledge and service. You can't put a price on having unlimited access to Hope throughout this experience, no matter if you have a question about launch strategy, pricing your offerings, how to structure a course, or anything else. We're walking away from this Mastermind with clarity, focus, direction, and a plan, and for the first time ever, we actually believe that building the educational business of our dreams IS possible. We can't thank Hope enough for providing this opportunity and pouring into us!"

–Caitlin and Luke 

"If you're on the fence...DO IT!!! Hope's mastermind has been one of the greatest investments I've ever made in my business! I immediately saw a change in my business after implementing the things Hope taught. She helped me get my passive income really coming in, and it's on track to pay for itself in only a couple of months! Hope knows what she's talking about, and really cares about YOU. She does whatever she can to help your business thrive, while always checking in to see how you're doing. This mastermind was a game-changer in my already thriving business. I'm SO thankful for Hope and for all she's done for me! After implementing the things Hope taught us, I made back a third of my investment through passive income streams in ONE MONTH! Since I learned how to scale it, I'm on track to have the mastermind completely paid for in the next 4-6 weeks from passive income alone!"

–Rebecca Rice

Next-level education and mastermind-style teaching for business owners looking to scale into passive income.

Ready to change your biz and your life?

Your business is already profitable and succesful, but you know you aren't done growing and dreaming

You are in the right place if...

You are serious about launching a new product, idea or offering in 2021 - and want to make sure you are doing it RIGHT 

You feel like you've maxed out on the education that is available to you (because you don't need another workshop or conference)

You are seeking community and being surrounded by business owners that are at the same stage of business (and ones that are even more advanced!) 

You are prepared to make the emotional, financial and time commitment to do the work and change your business

take me to the application!

THE MASTERMIND

WHat's included:

On the third week of each month, we will have a monthly "hot seat" call. During these calls, 1-2 members of the mastermind will have an opportunity to ask questions and get feedback from Hope and all of the mastermind members on projects they are actively working on.  

All mastermind members will be added into an online community for on-going support, encouragement and resources for the duration of the mastermind. Hope will also regularly be active in this group to answer questions and provide additional support. 

Each member of the mastermind will receive 1 one-on-one coaching call during the 6 month coaching period to get even more personalized coaching. You will select the date for your one-on-one call upon registering for the mastermind (and the dates are first-come, first serve!) 

Each member of the mastermind will have UNLIMITED email and Voxer access to Hope as their business coach. This includes answering any questions, editing and reviewing content, getting access to Hope's resources  and more. Think of me as your business's secret weapon in your back pocket! 

At the end of the 6 month mastermind program, there will be a 2-day in-person intensive in Charleston, SC for mastermind members only. We will cover more content, have time for implementation and end the mastermind with a bang (and wine)! 

This application-only coaching opportunity has 12 spots available and was intentionally designed for a specific type of business owner.

But, the mastermind truly isn't for everyone.

Already run a profitable business, but you are ready to start making MORE while working LESS with passive income streams  

I'm convinced.

I'm ready to apply

The Hope Taylor Mastermind is for you if you...

Are looking to level-up in business by implementing strategies used by some of the top earners in the creative industry

Are willing to put in the WORK to see growth in your business...and don't expect the hard part to be done for you

Are seeking community and understand the value of learning from others in the mastermind setting, not just from Hope 

Are actively ready to launch your next big project, product or venture in your business - and want to do it the RIGHT way

What will we be learning?

From the get-go, we'll hit the ground running by talking through my entire launch strategy timeline + email marketing basics - this will give you the perfect platform to begin planning your calendar for the second half of 2020. We'll talk through how to prime your audience, plan a succesful launch and the strategy that has helped me make 6 figures of passive income each year.

I'll be breaking down exactly how I've built my email list from nothing to almost 20,000 in only two years and how it makes me money in my sleep with evergreen sales funnels. We'll also talk about how to continue to scale your audiences on all platforms to consistently bring in new leads! 

i'm ready to apply!

The mastermind content will be custom-tailored to fit the needs of the members who are chosen, but some of the topics we will be covering will include:

JAN: LAUNCH STRATEGY TIMELINE + BASICS

the basics of digital marketing + the timeline for success

FEB: ORGANICALLY GROWING YOUR AUDIENCE

growing your mailing list + social media platforms without ads

What works, what doesn't and how to lay out your product in a way that is completely irresistible to your ideal audience. We'll make sure all of your sales pages are well-designed, have great copy and are FUNCTIONAL - because pretty doesn't matter if it isn't bringing in sales. 

APril: ANATOMY OF A SALES PAGE

HOW TO BUILD AND EXECUTE EFFECTIVE SALES PAGES FOR YOUR PRODUCTS

The timeline of a launch and the basics just aren't enough - we're going to dive DEEP on this call into every tiny piece of strategy that helps me convert email list subscribers to buyers. From sales copy, webinar strategy, live launches, free challenges and more - I'm pulling back the curtain on all of the seemingly-simple tasks that make MASSIVE impact on my sales.

Outsourcing is a common topic that is discussed in our industry, but not necessarily at an advanced level. Maybe you feel like you've maximized your outsourcing and team options, but you still don't have enough time in the day to do the things you want to do in your business. Let's analyze new areas you can outsource, and how to level up and maximize your team.

APRIL: ANATOMY OF A SaLES PAGE

the logistics of a succesful launch: strategy, timeline + more

MAY: HIRING + BUILDING A TEAM

outsourcing to free up your time so you can build an empire

Algorithms are our WORST nightmare...but video should be your best friend! We'll dive into how to connect WELL with your audience through video and visual content, but how to do it strategically to feed into your passive income sources - and ensure it isn't a waste of time or money. We'll also have our in-person retreat this month for additional customized content + implementation time! 

JUNE: VIDEO marketing + WEBINARS

MARCH: LAUNCH STRATEGY DeEP DIVE

2021 mastermind!

hear what other mastermind members are saying: 

"Hope is just a wealth of knowledge and resources."

- Rachel

"Hope truly cares about me and how I felt during the mastermind. She was willing to do a call with me during the mastermind to relieve any stress I was having. Hope understands and knows what she is talking about when it comes to business and passive income. She really does care about you and always checks in with you to make sure you are doing okay. I love that Hope has asked me where I want to go with my business, where I see myself right now, and has helped me find my passion in what I am doing. I know I have ideas I would like to do and I know with Hope's help, I will be able to achieve those goals I have for my family and I. I am beyond blessed to have met Hope, to have her part of my life, and to have her support in my business and personal life. I know I am walking away from the Mastermind with a clear focus, direction, and lifelong friends that will be some of my biggest supporters in my business. I know I gained not only a coach in Hope, but a friend in her. I know she will continue to encourage me and support me. I can't thank Hope enough for her servant heart into me and for pouring her knowledge into me. Thank you Hope for everything!"

-Courtney Bosworth

"I really wasn't sure if the Mastermind was right for me because I wasn't currently doing education or even had a clear vision of WHAT I wanted to be doing, but I did know I wanted to explore passive income! I came into the Mastermind with a couple of ideas in my head, but after talking with Hope and her really drilling down to what my passions are and what I am really good at I am now working on something COMPLETELY different! I am so grateful that Hope really worked with me and asked a lot of questions to get to MY WHY, instead of just telling me how to write a course on something that I wasn't really passionate for!" 

-Michelle Scharfman

"This experience is so unlike any other business program you could invest in. The price was a little bit of sticker shock at first and I was hesitant because I've never invested this much into one program that wasn't teaching me a new technique related to my profession directly but after just the first week I was hooked! This program is so much more valuable than you know. To have access to Hope's brain and all of the other course students is so incredible; they're resources you just can't put a price tag on. I've grown so much and I'm so excited to have someone follow along with me and cheer me on while I can implement all of my new knowledge! I feel like I got 12 new friends and business minds for the price of one! Honestly though, having full access to Hope's mind any time I had a question was the best. Our Voxer messages have been life changing."

"Hope, That's really expensive."

Whew...

This mastermind is NOT for everyone - and I do not say that lightly. All applications are put through an extensive process to ensure everyone inside the group is ready for the investment, can provide value to other members + is committed to investing back into the group. Your mastermind investment does not just give you unlimited access to Hope - it gives you access to an intentionally curated group of like-minded creatives ready to dig deep alongside you.

in my 7 years of running a business, i have learned this: people are willing to invest in things that matter most to them. And, because this mastermind requires dedication and hard work, I want to know that every member inside is ready to take that leap and invest in themselves + their dreams.

My mastermind members truly become my full time job. I make myself available to provide quick turnarounds on ALL of your questions and business needs. Need me to review 12 pages of an email sequence? Done. Want to voice message back and forth to brain dump until we find a name for your new offering? Absolutely. Want to have me proofread a tricky email, help with customer service issues, address a technical problem, help you strategize a launch? Done, done and done.  I intentionally take on less client work during the mastermind to allow time for all of my students. So, know that I take your investment seriously - and I truly will become your biz BFF.

"OHHH! It's been WELL-WORTH it and more! Coming from a girl who was SUPER skeptical to take the risk and dive in head on! This mastermind has truly changed my life & business."

-Dahlia

" you're on the fence, DO IT!! Words can't explain how much value you get out of the mastermind...It is PRICELESS!!"

"The honesty is what I love the most about the entire experience. Hope really does care about the outcome of your business as does everyone in the mastermind!

"It is 100% worth it!! After implementing the things Hope taught us, I made back a third of my investment through passive income streams in ONE MONTH! Since I learned how to scale it, I'm on track to have the mastermind completely paid for in the next 4-6 weeks from passive income alone!"

You're right! This mastermind is designed to be a high-level investment, and I want to break down exactly why. I pride myself on being a no-nonsense educator, and I don't take your investment lightly. So, let me explain exactly why the mastermind is such a big investment: 

Don't wanna take my word for it?

Not to worry! I straight-up asked current mastermind members exactly what they would say if they were asked "Was the mastermind investment worth it?"
 Here's what they had to say:

-Manali

-Paxton
