Why You Should Avoid Paid Masterminds



Today’s caller to the Coach Pony Radio Hour wants to know if a pricy mastermind is worth it as a new coach.

And of course, we’ve got hot takes and advice for deciding if a high-priced mastermind is right for you and your coaching business.

In this very cheesy eighties-themed season of the podcast, join me, Christie Mims, a career and business coach, and Bobbi Palmer, a dating coach, as we answer your burning questions about your coaching business. Bobbi and I have built six and seven-figure businesses of our own, and we’ve learned a thing or two along the way. And now, we’re sharing all that knowledge with you.

Today we’re giving you the down-low on what a high-end mastermind is, why they can be valuable, and why we think they’re a bad idea for a new coach.


Listen to the full episode to hear about:

  • What the value can be in a paid mastermind and why it’s just not there for new coaches
  • Why you should be wary of high-end paid masterminds that don’t have a minimum income threshold
  • How making a major investment in a mastermind can set back your business and cause you unnecessary stress
  • The education and training that new coaches need instead. Bonus: it’s lower-priced
  • How to start your own free mastermind for mutual support and ideas
