Join a Beyond Well Circle for accountability and support
Accountability, candid talk and support from a team of inspiring smart solo-business owners who will elevate your performance.
Starting a business all by yourself is hard
Building a solo-business is damn tough, especially because you have to do most things yourself and learn new skills on the fly.
Running a solo-business can be a very lonely and confusing journey, without a good support structure in place.
I know because I've been there.
The sense of isolation can have a huge impact on your productivity, emotional wellbeing, and motivation. You may struggle with feelings of overwhelm, perfectionism, and procrastination.
But you know what?
I believe that it doesn't have to be this hard. With the right people on your bus, it can be so much easier. That’s why I created Beyond Well Circles.
What exactly is this Beyond Well Circle?
Before I lay out the program, let me tell you how this came about.
In coaching clients 1:1, I have noticed that people are not lacking ideas, goals, or aspirations. Hell, they don't even need help planning.
What most people really need is accountability and overcoming mindset blocks. Why? Because building your dreams is incredibly hard and our minds have all sorts of smart mechanisms to trip us up with inner resistance. We procrastinate, we play small, we feel like a failure or an imposter (just to name a few).
Not everyone can afford 1:1 coaching. And I believe there is a very good structure to get this accountability with a more modest investment: by joining a Mastermind group.
With that realization Beyond Well Circles were born. An intimate Mastermind program that runs over 3 months, limited to a small group of hand-picked inspiring solo-business owners.
I took what I learned from Mastermind groups, proven accountability mechanisms, and support groups to create a unique blend of a group that supports you in the most challenging times of starting a business.
It's three months long because building a business takes time AND I want to be there for you when things get hard.
"I am basically creating something that I wish I could have relied upon when I first started my business."
Here is what you can expect from the Beyond Well Circle
Here are just some of the benefits you will have:
Become part of a team of people you can trust
Surround yourself with people who are honest and supportive at the same time. Feel lifted up when things get tough.
Get support with challenges
Discuss your most pressing challenges and get different perspectives from a team of smart people.
Get your business off the ground
You will take bold action and continuously challenge yourself - thanks to the accountability the circle offers.
Overcome mindset blocks
Most of what holds us back are our own beliefs. Become more aware of your blind spots, so you can tap into your full potential.
Develop better focus
Work less but with better results. Radically focus on what moves the needle and stop the overwhelm.
Focus on your wellbeing for sustainable success
Your mental wellbeing determines the quality of your work and the results you get.
To be clear: this is not a program where I spoon-feed you with cookie-cutter strategies and neither is it just a place to chit chat. We get shit done here.
This is a private, closed-door, let's-get-down-to-your-business Mastermind experience.
The program will be powerful, raw, and unrecorded. The focus is on YOU. My role will be to help you tap into your deepest self who already knows what you want, even if you may be afraid.
I will work with you and a small, hand-selected group of like-minded solo-business owners. This is for people who not only have big dreams but also want to make them happen. It's also for people who thrive in groups and like to help others grow and succeed.
*Please note that you will be asked to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) to protect the privacy of what you share, as well as the privacy of the other participants. If you are not willing to sign this agreement, you cannot participate.
Who is it for?
Beyond Well Circles are right for you, if....
- You are just starting a business from scratch, or you are transitioning into a new business
- You are a creator, freelancer, coach, or consultant.
- You are 100% committed to doing work, even if it's hard. This is an intensive 3-month program with a weekly call, so I only want people on board who have skin in the game
- You are ready to handle straight talk and are willing to take on feedback.
- You know that mindset is just as important as marketing and business strategy.
- You are ready to support and contribute to other people's success.
Beyond Well Circles are NOT right for you, if....
- You want to only talk about your own business and give no space to others.
- You get defensive when people give you honest feedback.
- You have a tendency to be negative or blame everything but yourself for your lack of results.
- You are not sure if you really want to start a business.
- You are unwilling to sign an NDA agreement and keep personal things about others to yourself.
The program focuses on these 4 core elements.
Weekly Video Calls - 100% online
We will have one 2h weekly video call to check-in and tackle challenges together.
There is a 3-month commitment because I believe that a) big results take time to achieve and b) trust takes time to build. I want this to be your new family.
Getting Into the Hot Seat
Twice a month you get to be coached in the "hot seat" where you will tell us about one of your biggest challenges and we all put our heads together to solve it as a team. This is a great learning for everyone.
A Space Based on Trust and Honesty
A unique non-judgmental space where we can talk honestly and say it like it is - leaving no room for BS.
But wait, there's more...
In addition to the private Beyond Well circle you'll also get these additional bonuses that will help you make the most of the experience.
What you'll get in addition to the group calls
Your investment is $279 per month for weekly 1.5h sessions.
Next circle is starting soon.

Next circle is starting soon.
Beyond Well Circles are groups of likeminded solo-business owners with common goals who meet on a weekly basis to hold each other accountable, grow their business, and support each other during challenging times.
There will be a maximum of 5 participants in the program to keep the group intimate and give enough time to each member during the calls.
No, you can be based anywhere in the world. This program is 100% online. However, most participants will be from Europe and the time zone could be an issue if you are in the US, Asia, or Australia.
Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, learning, peer accountability, and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. A mastermind group helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success. Members challenge each other to set strong goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them. The group requires commitment, confidentiality, willingness to both give and receive advice and ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect, and compassion.
In his book 1930s "Think And Grow Rich", Napoleon Hill wrote about the mastermind group principle as: “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”
Yes, the coach will structure the sessions, keep a record, and ensure that all members get a chance to speak and be in the hot seat regularly.
We all have a lot of things on our plate, so if you see that you’re not going to make it to your meeting, please kindly let me know that you’ll be absent.
Be aware that by joining a Beyond Well Circle you’re making a commitment not only to yourself but to your fellow members. To respect everybody’s time and commitment you may be asked to leave the group if you are absent more than once.
Beyond Well Circles are peer-support groups. While there is an element of coaching in the hot seat, all members give input. In other words, the focus is less on the coach leading through a program and more on checking in with wherever the group needs the most support.
Yes, definitely. Please use the contact form on this website.
