ARE YOU TIRED OF GOING IT ALONE?

As the sole proprietor or owner of a small architecture firm, you are the engine that keeps things running.  And all decisions, big and small, fall on your shoulders.  

It’s a heavy burden to bear.  And it can be overwhelming and exhausting.

I hear it from architect firm owners all the time – 

 

"I wISH I HAD MORE TIME TO DESIGN"

DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

  • You enjoy being your own boss, but the headaches of running an architecture firm on your own are holding you back…
  • You’re spending too much time working ON your business rather than working IN your business…
  • You often find yourself operating at disadvantage because you don’t have the right resources at your fingertips…
  • You miss the collaboration that comes with being part of a larger team…
  • You KNOW you could be working more effectively and efficiently if only you had better information, technology and support structures.

If you find yourself thinking, “How did he get inside my head?”… read on. 

You’re in the right place

MOST ARCHITECTS START THEIR OWN FIRM IN SEARCH OF CREATIVE FREEDOM...
MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, THEY FIND THAT RUNNING AN ARCHITECTURE PRACTICE CAN BE A LONELY AND OVERWHELMING EXPERIENCE.

YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN…

Running a firm comes with its own set of unique challenges.  Creative freedom gets pushed out of the way to make room for cashflow, contracts, business development, sales, payroll, and a myriad of other necessities for running a successful business.

To add insult to injury, the design professions are highly competitive and foster a cut-through professional culture that makes it difficult to seek solutions amongst one’s peers.  Anti-trust laws prevent sharing of fee structures.  Competition for jobs creates a race to the bottom and makes it unlikely that fellow entrepreneurs will share their secrets for success with others.  And there are few, if any, venues where architects and design professionals lift each other up and support each other.

YOU’RE ALWAYS JUGGLING…

Instead of having copious amounts of time to design and create, the small firm owner becomes a juggler.  There’s not enough time in the day, there’s never enough money , and you always feel like you’re playing catch-up.

  • Time is tight – you’re busy enough trying to run your practice.  There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all.
  • Money is scarce – you have a million options to choose from and just as many decisions to make about where to allocate your financial resources.  You need to make sure that every investment produces the results you want.
  • Knowledge is at a premium – but it’s not always readily available, and you’re limited by what you know (and what you don’t).

HARD WORK ISN’T ENOUGH…

It’s a daunting task – keeping your business afloat while trying to do the design work you’ve always wanted to do.  

You’re working extremely hard to stay afloat and just getting by day to day.  Head down, nose to the grindstone, just survive “until it gets easier”.

I know in this place it gets dark and lonely. I’ve been there before myself and I was making it work (barely), but I was exhausted.  Long hours, isolation, and struggling with daily “life or death” decisions that would determine the success or failure of my business.

I didn’t know where to turn or what to do to have it go differently.  I was at my wit’s end, but all I could see to do was to continue doing what I’d been doing.

I eXPERIENCED THIS MYSELF WHILE RUNNING MY OWN PRACTICE...
...IT TOOK YEARS OF STRUGGLING BEFORE I STUMBLED ON THE SOLUTION,
AND NOW...

I AM ON A MISSION TO HELP OTHERS JUST LIKE YOU!

i wAS SO EXCITED TO START MY OWN PRACTICE...

I started my firm as a knee-jerk reaction to an unsatisfactory employment situation where I felt unappreciated and overlooked.

I had reached the end of my rope working for someone else.  I craved the freedom,  the independence, and the opportunity to make my own decisions that running an architecture practice would provide.

In desperation I simply quit my job and started doing contract work until it developed into steady income.  I got the freedom I wanted.  But I quickly realized that heading up my own firm came with its own set of challenges and hurdles.

I didn’t really have a plan.  I was just making it up as I went along, trying not to screw up too badly.

I pulled together every bit of knowledge and information I could to professionalize my firm, brand it, market it, grow it and protect it.  I started hiring staff.  The decisions multiplied and the responsibility increased.  I made choices – some right, some wrong.  I did the best I could.  Yet it never seemed to be enough.  And I always felt like I was a bit behind the 8-ball, operating in the dark.

I only knew what I knew.  Major decisions meant spending a ton of valuable time and precious resources to thoroughly educate myself, research every option and make the best choice I could.  

I found myself mired in the business of running my business, second-guessing myself, and often crossing my fingers in hopes that I’d made the right choices in every possible area.

Going it alone left me frequently feeling isolated, lonely, and lost.

THEN I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE CONCEPT OF A

MASTERMIND

THE IDEA IS SIMPLE:

A MASTERMIND IS A SMALL GROUP OF LIKE-MINDED LEADERS AND PROFESSIONALS WHO COME TOGETHER AND COLLABORATE TO DRIVE IDEAS AND ACTION

You can think of It as the ultimate brainstorming and accountability platform.

A mastermind provides you with all the things you’re missing in your business

 

    • A “Board of Directors” who know your work and understand your challenges
    • A magnified source of information, advice and knowledge
    • An accountability community ready to inspire you, motivate you, and keep you in action
    • A support network of creative colleagues who can help you think outside the box
    • A coach to help you set goals and connect with the larger picture

imagine what you could accomplish with THOSE resources at your fingertips?

IMAGINE IF YOU COULD SPEND MORE TIME AND ENERGY IN YOUR BUSINESS RATHER THAN WORKING ON YOUR BUSINESS...

GREATER EFFICIENCY

MORE TIME

HIGHER PROFITS

AND MORE!

THE BENEFITS OF A MASTERMIND ARE POWERFUL

Collaborate with others on your most pressing challenges and craft new solutions!

JOIN A COMMUNITY

It’s incredibly empowering to be able to meet with colleagues in a safe, confidential, non-competitive environment where you can share ideas and get heartfelt support.  Work with others who understand you and want you to win!

LEVERAGE COLLECTIVE KNOWLEDGE

The power of a Mastermind is that you not only have your own store of information and knowledge, but you have access to the experience and brilliance of each of the participants in the Mastermind.  Crowdsourcing solutions can multiply answers to your most pressing problems.

SAVE MONEY AND TIME

It only takes ONE referral, ONE recommendation, ONE system or process or collaboration to transform how you work.  The whole idea of a Mastermind is for you to bring your biggest challenges to the group and solicit ideas that will help you save time, money and energy. 

Once your practice is thriving,

you can get back to doing what you love…

DESIGN

INTRODUCING THE STUDIO 3D MASTERMIND

The Studio 3D Mastermind is designed for architects like you who are building their practice and want to take their business to the next level.

The process is straight-forward

  • CREATE GOALS – You meet 1-on-1 with architect and executive coach, David Bradley, for an on-boarding session to discuss your personal and professional goals for your Mastermind experience.  Together, we set a course to generate results centered around a project of your choice that will make the greatest difference for you and your practice.
  • GENERATE MILESTONES – Using a proven project design process, we determine the major milestones that will mark the steps along your journey in the Mastermind.  These milestones will serve as guideposts for you and your peers to measure your progress and determine how to keep you moving forward powerfully.
  • COMMIT TO AN ACTION PLAN – Over the first few weeks we focus our energy on the concrete actions that will keep you on track to meeting your milestones.
  • ATTEND MEETINGS – Over a period of six months you meet with your Mastermind twice a month for 90 minutes to check in, report on successes, share challenges and brainstorm solutions to maximize your momentum. 
  • GET SUPPORT – During each Mastermind session, three members of the group take part in a “Hot Seat”.  The Hot Seat is a 20-minute spotlight where you get to bring a unique challenge you’re facing in your business and get the full group’s efforts to brainstorm solutions for you.
  • RECEIVE ACCOUNTABILITY – Each Mastermind session ends with declarations of the actions you will take and the group commits to supporting you in delivering on those commitments by the next meeting.

Everything in the Studio 3D Mastermind is geared to support you in generating the results you want and creating the practice you dream of!

WORK ON THE ONE PROJECT THAT WILL MOVE YOUR PRACTICE FORWARD

hOW DOES A TYPICAL STUDIO 3D MASTERMIND SESSION RUN?

Leadership

The Mastermind consists of six participants and is led by architect and executive coach, David Bradley.  David’s role is to guide the conversation, monitor time and participation, and provide overall direction for each session.  The Mastermind, however, ultimately belongs to the members, and each participant is expected to contribute to the discussion and both give and receive feedback.  

Connection

We always start our meetings with a brief check-in and a chance for each participant to share wins from the past two weeks.  It’s a great chance to get connected and celebrate progress.

Hot Seats

Each meeting, three of the six participants take part in a 20-minutes “Hot Seat” where they each present the team with their most pressing challenge, provide some backstory if necessary, and make a request of the group for support.  The group is encouraged to ask any clarifying questions and then brainstorm solutions, suggest alternative approaches, offer resources, make referrals, and generally help the Hot Seat participant think beyond what they know.

The other three participants sit in the Hot Seat during the next meeting of the month, so everyone gets individual attention each month from the whole group.

Declarations and Accountability

The session wraps up with each member armed with new possibilities and declaring which actions they will take on over the intervening period until the next meeting.  We take a look at what accountability structures will be necessary to maintain momentum.

In Between Mastermind Sessions

Members have access to a monitored LinkedIn group to facilitate communication and sharing during the month.  You’re also encouraged to support each other through a buddy system and take on other activities assigned by your coach as indicated by the course of conversations that developed or issues that arose during the session.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

COMMUNITY –

YOUR STUDIO 3D TEAM

Join up to five of your peers who are all operating at the same level.  They are all running their own small firm or practice.

Together, you form a community where you can share your journey and get support from people who understand what you’re up to and who want you to win.

MEETINGS –

GATHER TO COLLABORATE

Twice a month you’ll meet with your team in a mediated session to address the challenges you’re facing, check on progress, set goals, and brainstorm new solutions.

Meetings are 90 minutes in duration and include time to share wins, brainstorm solutions for each member’s challenges, and create accountability structures.

HOT SEATS –

 PERSONALIZED ATTENTION

Once a month you sit in the “Hot Seat” – a key component of the MasterMind. When you’re in the Hot Seat you are the sole focus of the group’s attention. You get instant feedback, hear new perspectives, and get better, more numerous ideas than you could conceive on your own – massively reducing your learning curve.

RESULTS –

CREATE AN ACTION PLAN

Together with your coach you will determine the parameters of the project that will generate the best results for your business.  

Whether you’re looking for greater efficiency, an ability to scale, proficiency in new business development or something completely unique, we’ll set a course for success.

LEARNING –

PROFESSIONAL RESOURCES

As dictated by the Mastermind’s needs and dynamic, industry professionals will be invited to present on their area of speciality.

Reading lists, coaching tools and other professional resources will be shared as dictated by the content of sessions and discussions.

GUIDANCE – 

EXECUTIVE COACHING

Unlike many Mastermind groups, Studio 3D is led by an industry peer and executive coach.

David Bradley is both a licensed architect and professional certified coach.  He brings both a knowledge of the industry and the coaching skills to make the most of your Mastermind experience.

WITH THE SUPPORT OF YOUR MASTERMIND YOU CAN CREATE THE RESULTS YOUR PRACTICE NEEDS TO GROW AND THRIVE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who will be in my cohort?  How do you select members?

The Studio 3D Mastermind is intended for architect solopreneurs and small firm owners (typically 5 employees or fewer).  Your needs as a small firm entrepreneur are unique and will be best served by people facing similar, but not identical, circumstances and challenges.  Members may be just starting out or they may be more seasoned, but you all have the same business goals in common – getting your firm to thrive.

Those interested in joining the Studio 3D Mastermind will be interviewed and screened to ensure that their goals and intentions are a good fit for the group.  We are looking for self-motivated individuals who want to grow their practice and are willing to actively participate in the group, contributing to the conversation and the group dynamic by both giving and receiving. 

Personal commitment and professional integrity are critical to the success of each member and to the group as a whole.  We’re looking for players, not bench warmers – members who recognize the value of teamwork and celebrate the wins of others as much as their own.

What does it mean that this group is a “Founders” program?  What does that mean for me?

This particular Studio 3D Mastermind is a pilot program.  As such, it’s still in development and some aspects of it may change (although the core concept remains intact).  We may experiment with different techniques, add or subtract programming or resources, or try something new and innovative. 

In exchange for a discounted “Founders” price, you are asked to take part in the program’s development and provide feedback and constructive criticism.  You may be asked to complete a brief survey or questionnaire during the program, and you will complete an exit interview upon completion.  All your input will help improve the program for future participants and ensure that it remains an offering of the highest quality.

How do I guarantee a return on my investment?

Of course, like anything in life, you get what you put into it.  That said, our commitment is that everyone walks away at the end of the six months having created what they came for.  To that end, in your Onboarding Session you will distinguish the one main area of your business the improvement of which will have the greatest impact on your success.  Some possible places to look might be: 

    • Financial integrity
    • Staffing and scaling
    • New business development
    • Marketing and social media presence
    • Time management
    • Health and well-being
    • Communication
    • Leadership…

You get to choose what will make the difference for you!  We’ll focus our energies on that topic during the six months and create a project structure that will guide your journey, provide milestones to measure your progress, and give you benchmarks your team can hold you accountable to.  The goal is for you to complete the Mastermind, look back, and celebrate having created the breakthrough results you declared.

YOU’VE WORKED HARD.  

YOU’VE BUILT YOUR PRACTICE.

AND YOU’VE HIT A CEILING

It’s time to work smarter – not harder.

It’s time to start getting the support and resources you need to get to the next level of your personal and professional growth.

The Studio 3D Mastermind can provide you with the community, the knowledge and the support to make it happen.

But you need to act NOW

Registration for the special Founders Mastermind pricing expires November 3rd and there are only a couple open slots left!
