Being in Victoria's Breakout Success Mastermind has completely changed my life in ways that I never expected and in ways that I could barely dream to be possible only 12 months ago.
When I started with Vic, I had only my offline photography business and I was feeling quite isolated in terms of my connection to people and working alone at home. I had also hit a plateau in my income. I knew I needed to step up somehow.
I have to be honest, I was really hesitant about the investment in myself. It felt like a big stretch to me and I went through all the usual thoughts like "you could do this on your own" but then I realised, if I could I would have done it by now.
Despite coming across like quite an extrovert and a confident woman, I was also struggling with putting myself "out there" and doing what was required to grow my list beyond the clients who knew and loved me. I was dealing with the "who do I think I am" demons and I needed a safe place to allow myself to admit these fears and to be vulnerable to move through them.
That's where a mastermind like Victoria's is worth its weight in gold. Being a female entrepreneur is never just about the metrics and the funnels and the numbers (even though I LOVE that side of it and now totally understand retargeting and pixels and their magic, thanks Vic!!).
Victoria has a gift for curating like-minded women who just gel together, despite being from totally different industries, backgrounds, cities, ages and marital status!! Joining Breakout Success has provided me a whole new genuine support group of inspiring women who I would never have met otherwise.
Girls with whom I speak daily about everything not just business, girls who, along with Victoria have stepped me down off the ledge when I felt like giving up, pulled me up when life got hard and cheered me on at every step, both in my business and personal life. Vic is a straight shooter and will call you on your own bullshit but knows when to soften and support.
I have written, sold and created not one but three hugely successful online courses as well as created my own mastermind for photography business women since starting with Vic. These products and services have completely covered the cost of my investment in the mastermind and more. I can attribute $10k alone to one email that Victoria helped me write and then execute with strategy sessions and sales techniques, and another $7k in 24 hours from one webinar using Victoria's guidance and re-working and marketing mind.
There is absolutely no way I would have been confident enough, clear enough, or motivated enough to power on and produce this work in such a short space in time if I wasn't in the mastermind. It's so easy to get derailed with your own doubts and life's challenges but Victoria and the girls have kept me on track.
These past 12 months have completely set me up in now my business and I am so excited for the next 12 months to use Victoria's marketing and list building skills to really get my message and my products out there on a broader scale.
The highlight for me are always the offsite retreats. Victoria always infuses glamour and fun with serious business into every retreat - the retreats act as a reminder to me of how abundant and lucky and supported I am, and we all know how when we are grateful and in an abundant mindset, that it attracts more of the same.
Two words to describe my past 12 months would simply be: life changing.
Thank you Victoria for everything. Love you lots.
