Melbourne |10th - 11th August 2019
When Business and Creativity Collide!
We know you've already listened to a hundred podcasts, attended scores of webinars and bought countless courses and eBooks you haven't finished. We’ve all been there.
And yet you're still not sure what your next step should be to turn your creativity and passion into a secure income.
You’re spinning your wheels and close to burnout, trying to break through to the next level. Many of us did it the hard way, which is how we can now help you with the smart way!
This tailor-made mastermind experience over two days that will ensure you get exactly what YOU need to help you evolve your business online. No more talking heads, boring presentations and listening all day.
Our team of master minds point you in the right direction so all that effort actually gets you somewhere - potentially on the road to earning your first $1m.
We believe in creators and your ability to build a profitable business from your passion and skills. The bloggers, vloggers and podcasters, the social media mavens and online influencers, and the teachers and practitioners who want to scale helping people beyond the one to one.
We believe in your voice - it is at the centre of what you create, which is why we’re bringing out Jeff Goins from the US. He’s a master in helping you define and refine your voice to tell the stories that will connect with and help your audience.
Join Darren Rowse from ProBlogger, Jeff Goins author of Real Artists Don't Starve, James Schramko from SuperFastBusiness and other selected experts to discover how to evolve your business online.
It starts with your voice – we start blogs because we have a voice or a message that we want others to hear. But the internet is a noisy place – it’s difficult to stand out and be original. We often become disheartened when we see others selling or doing the same thing we’re trying to do.
Jeff Goins will help you learn how to put your personal (or brand) voice back at the centre of your business and create a business offering around it that is uniquely yours.
Attend his opening keynote and then springboard into a small group workshop experience with him.
Access our 'Master Minds' – where creativity and business collide!
With your voice and message clearly in focus, it's time to tackle what is holding you back from evolving to the next level. For starters you'll be able to access the super powers of Jeff, James, Shayne, Kelly and the ProBlogger team (joined by Darren on Sunday), as well as other relevant experts. Some of which we've already invited, and others based on what you tell us in the survey after you buy your ticket.
That's right, YOU will influence who we bring in to help you, as well as decide who you need to spend time with over the weekend to get the direction YOU need.

A Word from Our Attendees
Anyone who is wanting more information about making a place for themselves in a digital world needs to be here.
If you’re a business owner in general and not just a blogger, the blogging world is so far ahead. If you’re really looking to be inspired and take some action and get an implementation plan then the mastermind’s great for that.
~ Rebecca & Joe the4blades.com
The speakers were amazing and not just from what they telling us, but the fact they really showed us the ‘how’ and step-by-step processes.
They were really open about what had worked for them and what hadn’t and then being able to talk to them and ask them ‘how does that apply to my business and my blog’ - that was invaluable.
~ Kate Toon
My biggest takeaway was there's a lot of noise out there, everyone has the same messages, but the thing that sets your content apart is who the messenger actually is. That was really good to be reminded of, as someone who feels overwhelmed by the noise.
And that's ok, you just need to focus on who you are and how you're delivering that message.
~ Sam Jockel
