Aloha! I’m writing this from my hotel balcony in Waikiki, where I’ve been relaxing after an EPIC Happy Black Woman Mastermind Retreat with some of my clients in Maui! Our theme for the weekend was “Manifest Your 6-Figure Year” and all my Mastermind Queens showed UP and did the WORK for 3 days, with plenty of “play” in between :)
I thought it would be fun to give you a “sneak peek” inside the experience with some insight you can use for your own business and lifestyle, so here’s a little recap!
DAY 1: GOAL-SETTING & OFFER CREATION
We held our retreat at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel in Lahaina, Maui, known as Hawaii’s “Most Hawaiian” hotel. On Day 1, we went deep into goal-setting where the ladies outlined their financial goals and the reasons behind each one. Then, I walked them through the process of creating both high-end AND low-end offers to scale their businesses. I believe in building up multiple revenue streams to minimize the risky “feast or famine” cycles that many women entrepreneurs go through, so having high-cost AND low-cost offers to sell is so important!
We had a beautiful outdoor lunch with the hotel restaurant all to ourselves. And then…these ladies rolled up their sleeves for our first Implementation Lab! They got out their laptops and began typing away with me looking over their shoulders as they laid the foundation for their 6-figure business vision. We ended the day with a gorgeous sunset and a yummy seafood dinner at the legendary Duke’s Beach House. Happy Black Woman Tip: Always REWARD yourself for a job well done!
DAY 2: SALES & MARKETING
Day 2 was all about marketing, sales and content creation. Our attendees mapped out their 6-figure marketing strategy for the rest of 2019, announced new offers to their tribes and refined their branding where needed. We did our second Implementation Lab and I gave them one of my “5x5x5 Content Creation Challenges” where the ladies had to create a piece of content and post it in 5 places online before the end of lunch. And yes, they accepted the challenge!
The afternoon was all about personal branding! We did a lifestyle photo shoot for each attendee with my incredible photographer Daphne Hargrove, the ONLY photographer I work with when we’re in Hawaii. We ended the day with a wonderful (and hilarious!) luau experience with delicious Hawaiian food and an open bar(!) at Old Lahaina Luau. After a full work day, our meal was well deserved!
DAY 3: SYSTEMS, TEAM & PLANNING
On our final day together, we went line by line through my “6-Figure Systems & Tech” Checklist, identified gaps in their businesses and explored what each woman’s next level of support needed to be. The ladies completed their third Implementation Lab and got a lot of the “techy stuff” done that they had been struggling with.
We also did hot seats at the front of the room and came up with some great ideas and brainstorming during our group Mastermind time. By the end of the day, the ladies had all completed their 90-Day Money M.A.P. with an action plan for what they were going to implement over the next 3 months. In true Happy Black Woman tradition, we ended our retreat with an affirmation circle. Say it with me: I know what I want! I deserve to have it! And I know that it is already done! And so it is.
Now, you may be wondering….what exactly did attendees accomplish from the retreat?
Since the retreat, the updates have been rolling in:
- Jasmine has now fully booked up her calendar with 24(!) discovery calls scheduled with people interested in her new career coaching program!
- LaDawn has launched her life coaching business and opened registration for her first live half-day workshop!
- Dr. Natalia has launched her new yearlong diabetes prevention program to better serve her patients!
- Terria has opened enrollment for her upgraded relationship coaching program!

- Katherine has opened enrollment for her upgraded life and career coaching program!
- Atima has created her new 5-day challenge and recorded the intro for her new women’s leadership podcast to be launched soon!
I’m so proud of all of my Mastermind Queens! I feel honored to be a part of their journey to grow their businesses and live life on their own terms. Congrats, ladies!
Now, in the spirit of our retreat theme, I’ve got some homework for you…
