What if 2019 could be the year that changes everything?
I don’t know about you, but I have this gut-feeling that I could make 2019 my best year yet.
And I have a feeling that if you’re reading this, you’re wanting to do the same.
And what if I told you, that I knew a secret to taking this sentence and making it "Yeah, that sounds nice Rosalynne" to "Wow, this really happened for me!"
What is that secret? It's simple, really: join a mastermind.
Why? Because in our mastermind I'll provide the tools, resources, community and accountability to take your dreams from someday to TODAY.
Think about this:
What if 2019 is the year you create boundaries and find rest? I mean truly rest.
You do a little less hustle, and have a lot more grace.
- What if you let 2019 be the year that you let God move in even bigger ways than you could possibly imagine?
- What if 2019 was the year that you had enough confidence to boldly chase after those heart dreams?
- What if 2019 was the year you created margin to run a successful business and do other things you love?
- What if you pulled back from trying to do all the things, and instead focused on your best idea and give it everything you’ve got?
Cause I believe that’s where the magic happens.
I could keep going on a tangent of what-ifs, but I think you get my point.
The possibilities are endless, and sometimes it's hard to figure out how to move from that "what-if" statement to "just-happened" statement.
If you’ve ever wondered any of these questions, or are wondering them now, then I encourage you to keep reading my story.
I’ve poured my heart onto this page, and I’m excited to walk you through how joining a mastermind changed my life and why I think it can do the same thing for you.
Are you ready for this? Let’s go dive into the details.
I remember when I started my business, I felt totally overwhelmed, unsure and alone.
So much of my business was guesswork. Like, all of it, actually.
I was the very epitome of "fake it 'till you make it" and "I'll just make it up as I go along."
I prayed a lot, listened to my gut, and asked me sweet husband about a zillion questions a day (only a slight exaggeration)... those were about the only things helping to guide my direction.
And even those, at the time, were still uneducated guesses at best.
While I believe firmly in my faith and God's power to move in business (and by His grace He did, has, and continues to do so), it was still a very chaotic road that I was navigating solo. I didn't have any people to help guide me at the various "check points" if you will.
It was stressful, overwhelming, and I was exhausted.
I knew something needed to change. I knew I needed people on my side, walking the road with me.
In fact, scripture even says:
"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
- Matthew 18:20
God shares what He's known about humans from the very beginning:
We physically need other people actively in our story to successfully walk through this journey called life.
Scripture backs up the fact that we're supposed to do life with people. God rewards those who gather together, saying He'll be there right along with 'em.
And I would argue that we shouldn't only gather for our personal well-being, but I believe this truth is just as strong as it relates to your business.
So then how, as solo-preneurs that likely work alone in a room, behind screens all day, are we supposed to do this?
I believe that one solution is this:
Joining a mastermind.
Because being in a mastermind group puts you in an environment of like-minded thinkers, who are committed to creating change in their lives and in their businesses.
What are some of the other benefits of a mastermind? I'm so glad you asked!
- Being in a mastermind gives you a trust-worthy group of industry peers who will help you gain perspective, think in new ways, and will cheer you on through the highs and lows of this thing called entrepreneurship.
- A mastermind gives you accountability so that when you say you're going to do something, people are there to check in on you and ask why you haven't done it yet
- A mastermind is a safe place you can share the details and things that aren't yet "Instagram-worthy", and work through the problem areas in your business, while finding tangible solutions to these issues.
- A mastermind can give you focus, so instead of scrambling to do ALL THE THINGS, you can clarify your vision and proceed with confidence
- A mastermind will give you a group of "colleagues," if you will, who will love you and call you out on the things that need to be acknowledged.
- A mastermind group will provide networks and resources that you wouldn't otherwise have access to as a solo-preneur
And my desire for this mastermind isn't just to help you find your people.
I want you to walk away from this experience, having the courage and confidence to drive change in your business, and in your life.
To drive results.
To make an impact using the gifts, talents and abilities that God has uniquely given you.
How do I know this? Because I experienced it firsthand.
It wasn't until 2017, two years after I started my business, that I started and joined my first mastermind.
I was in a place in my business where I knew I needed guidance from others.
Actually, I had known this from the beginning, but at the time I wasn't really sure who I could ask (if you're not familiar with my business story, I highly recommend that you check out this blog post to read about it).
To be perfectly honest, when I first started my business, and I had no idea that things like mastermind for small businesses even existed!
Have you ever felt this way?
You feel like you're a lone wolf in this creative journey, wondering a million question and unsure of where to get the answers.
There's no "guide to being an entrepreneur and knowing how to make the zillion decisions you do on a daily bases."
I was lost on what's the best idea to pursue first/next, hundreds of unknowns, and had a lot of insecurity on how to confidently move forward in my decisions.
I was basically just going through the motions, without any systems or strategies in place.
Then God stepped in, with His ever perfect timing.
During a conversation after a Tuesdays Together meeting, I chatted with a dear friend (shout out to you, Lindsey) and we decided that we should start a mastermind group together!
So I joined my first mastermind group.
And you know what?
It. was. completely. life. changing.
Yes, seriously.... life changing.
Being in a mastermind was a total game changer for me.
It was incredible to have other small business owners in my life, who were well versed in the nitty-gritty details of where I honestly was.
I authentically showed up for them every week in our meetings, and these ladies were able to pour into the heart of my business.
What happened in our mastermind?
- The ladies were able to share wisdom, insights, and help give my dreams a focus.
- We discussed struggles, the areas where I wasn't clear on the best next steps, and suggestions for how I could improve my process and workflows.
- They made me accountable for the things I said I was going to do and called me out on the things I didn't do (when I said I would).
- They also cheered me on when I did follow through and move forward successfully, and helped me celebrate in that moment!
- They helped me process through ideas, discussing why one was worth pursuing or not pursuing. They helped give me clarity and focus and create a path that was strategic and smart.
- And seriously sooo much more.
One of the most powerful things I learned during the mastermind?
Yep, I said it.
Being in a mastermind helped bring to the surface my weaknesses...Which aren't fun to discuss or work through.
I believe there's power in acknowledging your weaknesses, so you can fully embrace your strengths.
When I let people in, got vulnerable and took a deep dive into my business, I was able to learn the areas where I was getting hung up.
I figured out what triggers were keeping me from building the dream business God planted in my heart.
God revealed so much to me in that season and our time together.
While it wasn't easy, and I didn't magically turn around and have "all the things" figured out and a perfect business plan,
I was able to work through the hard stuff so I could have better clarity in my vision for the best stuff.
I truly gained confidence, clarity and courage to do things like this - to launch my own mastermind class, even after being in business for only three years.
And that's my hope and prayer for you.
That you can see the dramatic change that I did when I joined a mastermind.
That you'll be able to gain the clarity, confidence, community and courage to boldly chase after this God given calling.
Are you already excited and want to apply to be in the mastermind? I love your enthusiasm!

Want to learn a few more details first? Let's take a deep dive.
While I could easily keep chatting about my personal story,
how much I loved being in a mastermind group and how transformative it was, I want to switch gears a bit and talk a little more about what the Rosalynne Love Mastermind is about, what you'll gain from joining it, and why I’m so excited to lead my own!
So, maybe you've read this far, and you're loving what you're reading, but still pondering like,
"Okay Rosalynne, what exactly is a mastermind group?"
A mastermind is a group of like-minded individuals who meet together regularly around a common goal. You talk through challenges, the highs and lows of being a entrepreneur, discuss problems or difficult situations you’re facing, hear outside opinions (because all ideas sound great in our own heads) and be able to process through all the things with industry peers about your business.
So basically, a mastermind becomes a group of YOUR PEOPLE, who will help you walk through, navigate, and boldly continue forward in this beautiful calling you've been given.
I remember so vividly being where you are right now.
Whether it was the feeling of loneliness, insecurity in your current pursuit, lack of clarity in what’s next for your business and how to pivot into a new season, or choosing which dream to chase after first.
I’ve been there.
I’ve experienced that.
I've worked through the hard things so I could be stronger on the other end.
Now I want to help you navigate these questions, difficulties, and seasons of business you are currently in.
My hope and prayer for this mastermind class is to help women feel equipped to pursue their calling with confidence, gain wisdom and the knowledge from industry peers to make the bold leaps. I want to help provide clarity in your vision to move into 2019 in a way that changes the lives of those you impact.
Now I say all this, and I want to be honest with you... I don't have all the answers.
I haven't figured out every single thing there is out there, because I'm human and that's not possible.
So I'm not trying to promise you the world.
But I can promise you that there is hope and there is help.
- that it is possible to move out of that place of overwhelm, and have clarity in your vision.
- That you can have confidence to make bold decisions in your business.
- That you can find accountability as a solo-preneur, so that you follow through with the things that you say you're going to
- That you can learn best practices from others, so you can save time from having to dig through all the trenches yourself
- That you don't have to do it solo
- That you can have a group of people that will help encourage you through the many winding roads and daily ups and downs of entrepreneurship.
You know what days I'm talking about... Days that look like this: #everyday
The beauty of a mastermind is that we get to walk through all these things together and navigate any and all additional questions/problems/wonderings that you have.
It's not something you have to do alone.
While I am so excited to lead you in this journey, a fantastic element of being in a mastermind is that you won't just learn from me - you will learn from your peers as well.
Now before you listen to that voice of doubt in your head, hear this:
I firmly believe that we all have a story, experience, and insights that create impact that are worth sharing. Wherever you are in your story, you have something of value to bring to the table.
Whatever season you are in, know that you wouldn’t be reading this page if you didn’t have VALUE TO SHARE.
Yes, seriously, you have a voice that needs to be shared.
A message that needs to be heard.
Someone is counting on you to show up today!
Are y’all getting as pumped up about it as I am?
Just writing this, I want to get up and dance around my studio!
I’m so excited to partner with you and grow in this journey together.
Now time to dig in to the details of what our time together will look like, and what you'll get out of this mastermind group.
Have additional questions or clarifications about the mastermind?
If you've made it this far, and you're still wondering ALL The things, I wrote out an entire page of all the FAQ’s I could think of.
Please click here to check out the additional FAQ page and see if you can find your answer there!
If you still have any questions, concerns or other general wonderings, feel free to email me via the contact form at the end of this page, or send an email to email@example.com
Now you’ve read all the things, and you’re wondering,
"How much is it going to cost to join in this mastermind and invest in the changes you've talked about?"
First things first, this is a paid mastermind.
I firmly believe that you're more likely to show up and do the work when you literally pay for it.
I've learned this rings very true in my life.
I know if I pay for something, I'm more likely to use it, follow through with it and show up for it.
Let's give a fun example:
If I win free concert tickets, the night of, I might decide that I don't feel like going and would rather stay at home and cuddle my husband on the couch. There could be more value in time with my husband in that moment, than the free tickets. I can justify that I'm not "out" anything.
However reversely, if I paid $2500 to go to a Taylor Swift concert (which would never happen, but I'm trying to make a relatable point) then you betcha that I'll be going to that concert. Because short of something super significant in my life, showing up holds value both in the experience and in the money out. Does that make sense?
So I believe that if you pay for a mastermind, or any experience, you're more likely to show up, do the work, and commit to this time together.
If it's free or $5 chump change in your wallet, you're less likely to do the work and see the transformation that will happen during out time together.
The investment for this 6-month mastermind $1,250.
Now I want you to know, if $1,250 isn't in your budget to pay up front, there is an option to pay monthly.
So you can choose to pay $1,250 altogether, or pay $225 a month for the 6 month duration.
And $225 a month is a very tangible number.
Let's get into it.
What could you do to make an extra $225 a month, so that you can invest in a group experience that could change your life?
Need some ideas and inspiration? Here's a few thing I thought of:
- Maybe you go to Starbucks on the 'reg, and so you give it up for this duration.
- Maybe you love to go out to eat, but commit to cooking at home so you can save money (and have yummy leftovers).
- Maybe you sell some of your old clothes that you don't wear anyways. It's a double win - you have extra money AND a less cluttered closet.
- Maybe you freelance one of your gifts (writing, photography, lettering, etc.) for some extra income.
- Maybe you ask for donations from family and friends who believe in you.
- Maybe you put a sale on one or several of your items in your biz, to drive sales and increase your revenue.
- Maybe you start dog walking on the weekends, or get paid to take your friends and neighbors dogs to the dog park.
- Maybe you commit to not shop at Target for the next 6 months (I know, that's a big ask, but we'll help keep you accountable for it and you might inspire others, too).
- Maybe you could become an Uber or Lyft driver.
- Maybe you open up your home in AirBnb, or offer tours in your town on AirBnb.
The possibilities are endless!
On top of all the above suggestions, I'm sure by now you've thought of a few additional ideas, too.
WHATEVER YOU DO, I believe you can find a way if you want it bad enough.
Here's a few things for you to think about:
- What would it look like if the money you invested in this mastermind turned around and benefited your business 10 times?
- What if joining this mastermind was the one decision that led to a refinement in your decision making for the upcoming year, and significantly impacted the results of 2019 and beyond?
- What would the value be to meet the person that connects you to your biggest client, project, idea or collaboration?
- What if joining this mastermind finally gave you the courage to do that thing that's been on your heart for months (or years) and you can walk away from this experience feeling equipped to do it?
What if joining this mastermind connected you with like-minded entrepreneurs, who could turn into lifelong business friends (with future networking connections) and accountability partners?
- What if the insight and gold nuggets you glean from our calls change the way you do business, make decisions, and give you the clarity to move forward boldly in your calling?
I believe that our decisions lead to action, change and impact.
And I think if you decide to move forward in this mastermind, it could be one decision you make that has a significant impact on the rest of your story.
And the best part?
You'll have help and guidance in all those little decisions from myself and the other mastermind gals.
I challenge you not to think on what you'll be giving away. Or what you'll be losing. Think of what you'll be gaining.
Additionally, I think investments require patience, persistence and passion.
Patience: an investment doesn't mean there's overnight change. You have to have the patience to see the long-term goal and know that showing up everyday can lead to dramatic change.
Persistence: an investment is going to do it's best work when you keep contributing towards the goal. You can show up one time, and that will have an impact, but it won't provide dramatic change unless you keep working towards it. Keep contributing regularly to see continued change and results. That's where the magic happens.
Passion: If you don't have a clear vision for where you're headed, then it will be hard to measure the results. And if you don't have a passion for chasing after these goals, then it will be easy to give up when the going gets rough.
If you’re serious about making an impact and change in your business, and want to learn from myself and other incredible like-minded women in business, then I encourage you to prayerfully consider this as your next opportunity.
If you clicked on this page, you’ve read through the copy, and you feel strongly that this is the direction you need to go...
Then I challenge you to let God move through you in this moment, and trust that He will provide a way to truly multiply your investment like you couldn't imagine.
I don't know about you, but I’m a total definition gal (I love learning word meanings and geeking out over them), and so I wanted to share the dictionary definition of an investment:
"[An investment is] an act of devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result."
I love the words used in this definition. As always, they are so intentional in the message they are trying to convey.
An investment requires time and effort to see the results.
It requires energy and focus to see specific goals become action and truth.
I’m a firm believer in vision casting: if you don’t proudly claim (and say it out loud, write it down, and share with others) that thing you’re wanting to do, then it will be hard to see it come to fruition.
That’s the beauty of a mastermind.
It sets you up to do these things, so that you’re able to see the worthwhile results you’re wanting.
That during our time together, you will see your investment manifest in bigger ways that you ever thought possible.
If you're ready to take your business to the next level, get systems and strategies in place so that you can confidently have clear boundaries in your business and work from a place of rest, then I'd love for you to apply!
If you're ready to gain clarity and courage in your business, and boldly move into 2019 with your game face on, then please apply to join the group!
However, if you’re not getting those butterflies or that strong calling to invest in this season, that is okay too!
This mastermind course isn’t designed for everyone in their current season.
Maybe you pass this time, but there’s another opportunity down the road that you are able to say yes to.
Whatever your decision, I encourage you to covet your “yes” and only respond in that way when you feel confident in it.
It is a powerful word and a powerful tool that truly has the ability to change lives.
Not just your life, but others as well.
If you feel so led, I would be honored to have you apply!
Please know that I understand life happens.
The application isn't a contract that you're obligated to join.
If you're accepted and prayerfully feel like it isn't the right time, just let me know.
But what I know is this: there are ladies who are meant to be in this group.
Ladies who are ready to move forward in their dreams in big ways, and I'm excited and honored that I have the opportunity to be a guide in this new season.
