the cole collective
A community of supportive business friends, led by mastermind coach Mike Cole
Would you like a friendly, relaxed space to talk things through?
In the Cole Collective we meet up (live on zoom) to:
have real conversations with people who understand
learn from each other’s experiences
support each other through the challenges that business inevitably throws up
celebrate our triumphs (big and small) – sharing the good stuff with people who really know what it means for us
keep evolving our businesses to work better for us
All led by experienced mastermind coach, Mike Cole
What we are
A real community – who value getting to know each other and offering support, as well as getting help ourselves.
Genuinely interested in hearing about each other’s challenges and triumphs, and willing to offer any ideas that we may have.
A positive place to be – focused on making progress and evolving our businesses to better suit us.
There for you when you need us.
What we aren’t
A networking group / a place to pitch
Somewhere to come and be told what to do. We believe that everyone is unique, and so is their business. We offer each other the wisdom of our experience, but it’s up to you what you do with that.
Somewhere to come for a whinge. We support each other to move forwards and take action.
A traditional ‘guest expert once a month, post on Facebook for support’ kind of a group. We value turning up and getting to know each other.
(priced so that you can turn up to sessions when it suits you, and not feel guilty about the ones you can’t make, or you don’t fancy attending)
No commitment – just pay monthly to remain in the Collective
What do members of the Cole Collective say?
Hi, I’m Mike…
We all have different strengths, and mine is that I’m great at helping small business owners (like you) to see and explore opportunities to evolve their unique businesses.
Together, in the Cole Collective, we encourage each other to make consistent, sustainable progress towards our own ideal businesses. There are no pre-conceived ideas about what you ‘should’ do or ‘six-figure models’ to shoehorn your business into.
I bring my coaching skills to help create a calm, supportive space so that we can learn from each other, and then make the right decisions for ourselves.
I’m an ICF-accredited coach, which means I’ve had a lot of training and experience at helping people explore their unique situation, gain new insight and take positive action. You can read more about me here.
What happens inside the Collective?
- We meet each Monday morning (10.30-11.30), live on Zoom.
- Each session has a different focus, but always includes time to discuss our businesses. Sometimes this is as one group, and other times we split into groups of 2 or 3.
- What happens in the main room of the learning sessions is recorded, so that you can catch up on the weeks that you can’t make it.
- You’re welcome to come to whichever sessions work for you. Some people find the monthly planning call worth the £20 alone, others avoid it like the plague. It’s totally up to you.
The sessions we run include:
Group coaching – Mike brings a coaching model along to help us dig into an aspect of our business
Hive mind – a chance to mastermind with fellow Collective members
Bite-sized learning – we spend 10mins learning from someone, then discuss how we can apply that learning to our businesses
Monthly planning call – making sure we keep an eye on the big picture
Facebook Group (optional)
We have a lively Facebook group that provides additional support outside of the weekly calls. We share what we’re working on for the week on a Monday, and look at how well it went on a Friday. We also celebrate our wins, and share interesting ideas, events etc that we’ve come across. But if Facebook isn’t your thing, that’s not a problem.
