Business MasterMinds is a community of business people who share ideas, experiences and knowledge - to improve their entrepreneurial skills. We believe that by working together, we create more than when we work alone.

Eamon's one of those people, who continuously learn, always stretching himself outside his comfort zone. Whilst this is his first entrepreneurial venture, we're
certain he'll start and grow other successful ventures in the future too.

Why Business MasterMinds?
We Love Entrepreneurship
Everything we do is co-designed by
Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs.
Nobody Knows Entrepreneurs Better Than Other Entrepreneurs.
Our entire business model - our BMM Roundtables,
Business Architecture, and Global Roundtables is designed by listening to entrepreneurs, prototyping with entrepreneurs, asking and getting feedback from our members, our business friends, and our Brains Trust.
About Growth. Growth of our Entrepreneurial Mindset, Business Acumen and Business Emotional Intelligence. Having a growth mindset is essential for entrepreneurship. Without it people keep repeating the same thing over and over again, never learning, never really getting anywhere.
Revenue is Not the Be All and End All. We love profitable, smooth operating businesses, that we have fun with. Business for us is so much more than how much money it makes. Revenue is only one aspect of the bigger picture.
We Love Progress. Growing a business into what you want is progress. It takes time to make a great company. There’s always so much too do and sometimes we need a nudge to keep us accountable and we need our peers to cheer us on.
Human Beings first. Business second.
We brought back the human element into our business community because for us it IS about people. We know what it's like when we're treated like a business first and a human being second. We talk to our members and clients as human beings first, not another number.
You won’t hear us say “it’s not personal, it’s just business”. Frankly, that’s crap. In a small business, you wear many hats, you put your heart and soul into it, and your business depends on it. Often your business is a reflection of who you are. It may be your passion, it may be something you’ve always wanted.
If you’ve been in business for a while you know the blood, sweat and tears that goes into making your ideas happen. You know that success doesn’t come just because you’ve opened your doors. It’s rare the business that turns over millions in the first year, second or even third. Most of us work hard for it. Business is personal for us.
Real world experience.
Minus all that hype.
No cowboys please!
You may have seen the cowboys out there swinging their hats with all that hype. Claiming to turn your business into a multimillion dollar business overnight. Swinging around the overnight success stories.
We’ve seen some members businesses generate revenue in the multi millions and take many, many years to do it, and be less profitable than another member, generating $180k, yet working less for it too. We’re sick of others touting the ‘x million dollar business’ overnight.
Just ask your accountant how many businesses they’ve seen grow that quickly. It doesn’t mean it’s not possible but it does mean that it’s rare.
We're interested in the sustainable growth and profitability of your business and how much you enjoy it as well.
Let's Get Real.
We have real conversations about business, with honest and insightful feedback. It doesn’t help you if we hype things up and lie. Frankly, it doesn’t help us either!
We openly share our real world experiences so that you can benefit, not just from our successes but from our mistakes and failures too.
Nobody is immune to making mistakes and having multiple failures along the way. That's just the nature of business and the nature of human beings.
