Q: How does it work?
A: WIN Mastermind can be viewed as a "theme park" where we facilitate interactions continuously, so members connect in all kinds of ways with other members:
- We have the Diamond Pages with detailed member profiles so you understand exactly whom you can contact for what (and they will all be glad to hear from you!).
- We currently have 4 virtual sessions each week (all optional), to which members can tune in when they feel it's right for them. These sessions are all one hour in duration and include the Asking Circle, the Open Circle (each in which participants can take a 12-minute spotlight to consult the mastermind on a strategic question), the WIN Mastermclass (in which members share their expertise) and the Weekly Sales Training Call (member Ken Norman is a sales specialist and offers you free sales coaching).
- We send a weekly newsletter where new members, success stories, special askings, etc are highlighted.
- We have the Knowledge Vault membership area, with strategic brainstorm meeting notes, masterclass recordings and tons of other high quality business resources.
- We have proactive customer service people called Guardian Angels who regularly check in with you to ask how we can support you on your hero's journey.
- In locations where we have multiple members, members meet up informally (in Amsterdam we organize an informal members hangout approximately every 3 weeks)
- As an additional turbo we offer full Guardian Angel support (for a small extra investment), which means you have your own Guardian Angel calling you weekly for strategic thinking and accountability.
- Finally, the elite program consists of ten 2-hour calls (each month, mandatory attendance) and Alexander himself is your Guardian Angel.
In the foreseeable future we will keep experimenting with new formats and different ways to interact. Currently on the roadmap: an All WINners virtual networking event, members being able to host their own weekly/monthly circle, promotional circles (small groups actively promoting each other's work).
Q: Can anyone join WIN Mastermind or is it invite-only?
A: Currently, WIN Mastermind is an invite-only network. Every member has been and will be personally vetted by Alexander and his team. This way, we increase the levels of trust inside the network and maintain a safe space for all WINners to share openly.
If no WINners know you yet, join an Open Circle and/or speak with a Path Advisor. When there is resonance and the heart says yes, an invitation is within arm's reach!
Q: What do you expect from a WIN Mastermind member?
A: First, ask yourself honestly: am I joining because of what I can get or because of what I can give? Most of all, WINners consider themselves givers and make an active effort to support others. Also, the system requires a certain level of emotional maturity and mental consciousness.
For example, in order to be ready for this depth of openness and collaboration, we need every member to be able to respond, not merely react to what is being said. Members are situationally aware, take nothing (OK... very little ;-) ) personally and speak clear words. Members understand they don't have to prove or explain themselves, are open to alternative viewpoints and suspend their judgment.
Q: What is the investment for an annual membership?
A: The annual membership price is consciously set to be significant enough to be committed to the network, whilst being very affordable for every serious freelancer or entrepreneur. For aspiring members who cannot afford the annual membership at once, there is the option to commit with monthly payments instead of a yearly payment.
If and when you are invited to the network, you learn the details of the three membership options: basic, growth and elite, and what the annual (or monthly) investments are. By then, you'll be having a better judgment of what WIN can mean for you and your business, so you'll be able to make the decision that's right for your specific situation.
Q: Do members earn a positive return-on-investment?
A: WIN Mastermind is designed to be one of the most profitable investments possible for any business owner (especially if you actively participate and regularly say yes to our ever-continuing stream of invitations to engage). To find out up to which amount of money WIN Mastermind will be a profitable investment for you and your business, ask yourself this:
1) what is the lifetime value for one client?
2) and how many clients do you expect to gain through the WIN network, if you would ask the network for client referrals at least at one occassion per week?
(If you find question 2 difficult to answer, join one of the free virtual mastermind sessions to understand the dynamics.)
These questions only focus on one way you'll benefit from being in the tribe, but a lot more is possible.
If you are tight on cash and need additional income before you can invest, consider using WIN Mastermind as a tool to generate revenue faster. It is totally OK for you to go around asking for client referrals in your early phases of membership. We get it, we have all been in that situation (and some of us are). It is OK to be vulnerable and ask for what we really need.
For example: you can use the mastermind calls and ask specialized members for 1-1 advice/feedback calls to get clear on 1) your ideal client avatar, 2) your pitch and 3) your irresistable offer. Then when these are clear, you can ask the members for referrals and introductions to people who fit your ideal client description. Remember: your product or services is like a gift from the Universe for your ideal client, so our tribe of givers will gladly connect you with the right people!
Q: When was WIN Mastermind founded?
A: Alexander started this adventure in May 2019 after he was an entrepreneur for two years and didn't manage to find the right networking group... a place where he could be fully authentic and be around people who uplift his vibration. With zero money in his pockets, an open heart and a big mouth he started to organize events and test dozens of different networking and masterminding formats. Currently, WIN Mastermind is still in beta phase... frequently experimenting with new formats designed to create meaningful connections among members of the network.
Q: Why was WIN Mastermind founded?
A: WIN Mastermind's purpose is to support purpose-driven entrepreneurs in making a bigger positive impact faster. The world needs individuals who contribute to raising vibration and shaping a harmonized world. By collaborating and sharing, we all grow our positive influence faster. Alexander Keehnen recognized that no such network exists yet, and every fiber in his body told him that it is his divine mission to create it.
Q: What are some success stories that members experienced through WIN Mastermind?
A: At the bottom of this page we collected some video recordings and written texts from members speaking about their experience with WIN Mastermind. Enjoy meeting some of our WINners!
Q: Can I see who the WIN Mastermind members are?
A: We will woon make a page available on which we introduce (some of) the WIN Mastermind members to you. Right now, this page is not yet available, so your best next step to meet some of the members is to check out the testimonial videos at the bottom of this page.
Q: What is the membership price and where does that money flow next?
A: Visit this page to see the different membership options. WIN Mastermind is designed to be a not-for-profit organization. Membership fees are used to cover operational costs (software licenses, time of the community manager and facilitators), growth of the network (recruiter rewards) and everything that's left flows into a fund that will be used to invest in projects of members.
Currently, WIN Mastermind is still operating at a loss and Alexander is accounting for this to keep the movement growing (in service of the greater long-term vision).
Q: In which countries is WIN Mastermind currently active?
A: The epicentre of WIN Mastermind is in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (with currently about half of the members). Other members are from the United States, Italy, Finland, Romania, Portugal, Estonia, Belgium, Vietnam, Slovakia, Switzerland and Malta.
Q: What is WIN Mastermind's long-term vision?
Our long-term vision is a worldwide network of purpose-driven individuals connected through an app. This app will have a library of human capital, an event calendar, mutual ratings and reviews for events and members and a search algorhtyhtm that helps you connect to the right member at the right time based on what's relevant for you at that time ("connect me now with the person who can help me with x").
