I never thought I would have the ability to distinguish different flavors, etc in tea. I've learned so much about that little plant! Also so many ways to have a successful business and how to grow. There are so many little ways to be successful and grow, not one right way!

Tea Mastermind has given me the opportunity to connect with other tea room owners and learn from them. It has provided me the opportunity to share my ideas about my business and the tea industry overall and to receive valuable feedback from others within the same industry.

My focus before Tea Mastermind was WAY too narrow. I feel as if I was walking down a dark hall not knowing to open the doors of the rooms.
There is SO much to learn!


Why should I join?

  • Because the tea industry is zooming and you want to lead the way
  • Because you like what you do...and want to be one of the best.
  • Because you’re tired of operating in an information vacuum.
  • Because hearing “What you shoulda done” drives you bonkers.
  • Because you can’t be everywhere at once.
  • Because sometimes you need help finding the answers.
  • Because you need to know which vendors dance the same tea tango with you (good, bad or ugly)
  • Because you’d like suggestions on personnel issues.
  • Because you’d like suggestions on customer issues.
  • Because you’d like suggestions on marketing issues.
  • Because you want to be financially independent – You can’t take “wow” to the bank.
  • Because companies with deep pockets are already doing this,
    and you need to stay a clever step ahead of them.
  • Because there’s no reason not to.

Why You Need To Be In A Mastermind

Going it alone in business can be a real struggle, especially when your family and friends don’t understand. They're not in your shoes. Yes, their opinions count but they don't have the same day-to-day experiences that you have. 
Group forums such as private Facebook groups help to a great extent however the best communcation is face-to-face in a like-minded community of your peers.
Tea Mastermind helps you Create+Design+Manage A Profitable Business.

  • Members learn new ideas in a short presentation.
  • Members use "homework", planners and checklists to help them meet their goals.
  • Members discuss their goals and problems from the last meeting and what they've done to accomplish their goals.
  • Members discuss problems they are having and other members offer ideas and advice.
  • Each person sets a goal to accomplish before the next meeting.

Group coaching

Group video conference calls

Masterminds are differentiated from online group programs by having live events and they are different from e-Courses for the same reason plus the inclusion of live 1:1 or group coaching.

What Are The Benefits Of A Mastermind?

A mastermind group helps you grow your business. You'll get:

New ideas from the weekly presentation by a Tea Mentor and business executive. We discuss topics such as customer loyalty, employee training, events, plus more. And of course, Tea.

New ideas from other members.  Sometimes the right solution is right in front of you and it takes a group of your peers to help with the answers.

Someone to lean on.  Having other people who understand what it’s like to run a small business can make a huge difference when you’re struggling.

An outside look at your business. Sometimes we’re too close to things to see our businesses the way outsiders do. Having someone with a fresh set of eyes to look over your website, offerings, events, branding, etc. can let us know how we’re coming across to other people.

Accountability. It can be hard to accomplish goals when no one else is holding us accountable. Having "homework" and declaring your intentions to a group of others is a great way to stay on track.

Socialization. Enjoy seeing the faces of other masterminders and catching up on their activities at weekly mastermind meetings. When you work all the time, socializing takes a backseat but with a live meeting and talking to people can boost your mood and make you feel energized.

After years of studying tea history and culture I was looking for a way to share my passion with others. Tea Trade Mart was the perfect education.  Through valuable homework assignments, Tea Mastermind live group classes, and peer review, I learned presentation and writing skills which turned a decade long hobby into an exciting business opportunity! Thank you, Jennifer!

I've learned so many tools for the trade. Just the act of sharing insights from so many others in the tea business has been invaluable. I never stop learning and Tea Mastermind has made it easy and fun!
