Spark mastermind 2023
It's time to get crystal clear on your goals for the year. Have a simple, step-by-step way to achieve them and a support system in place to help when you hit the tough spots.
So I know the importance of being in a community of supportive women in a similar boat. It makes a huge difference when you are trying to figure out this whole running a business thing!
Couple that with juggling mom duties, getting distracted, and constantly putting everyone else first. Getting your own shizzle done is hard!
But not this year, 2023 is where it all changes...
Following the the "24/7 Hustle Guru"
Sorry, but advocating that women pass up on sleep to hustle harder is not healthy and not what her or her family needs. Winding up with an ulcer from stress and missing out on your kids growing up is NOT a sign of success.
Following the "I Run My Biz In 5 Hours A Month Guru"
Really? The only way this is possible is to delegate all your work out and because delegating work takes time and systems you will need to hire a delegator to delegate the work. Doesn't add up does it?
Following the the "We All Have The Same Hours In A Day Guru"
Clearly not a mom who has no home help and clearly someone who has never built their own business from the ground up whilst juggling homework, housework, kids and a partner. Their advice is worthless if it can't be applied to mom life.
Using a my Kaizen SPARK System that is flexible to whatever niche you are in, we will get you set up and with a clear path to follow. With daily check-ins to make sure you are staying on task and constantly reviewing and tweaking so that you are hitting your milestones.
All of it broken down into manageable steps that fit with YOUR current situation.

Spark Mastermind 2023
You shouldn't have to choose one over the other. You can be a great mom and role model to your kids and run a successful business at the same time.
This system has been used with moms from all kinds of background, covering all sorts of niches. It's flexible and can be fitted to suit you and your families needs.
The step that most people don't take!
We look at your goals, make sure that they are realistic and achievable. Then we plan out what your year will look like taking into account school holidays, important family days and the such like.
All the planning in the world, even when using the fanciest of fancy planners means diddle-squat if you are not implementing the plan.
THIS IS THE PART WHERE MOST OF THE COACHES OUT THERE WILL TEMPT YOU WITH ADDED
BONUSES (MADE TO PAD OUT THE SALES PAGE) .
I AM NOT THAT KIND OF COACH.
I want you to be time efficient, not waste it on fluff filled bonuses or added extras that will rob you of your precious time.
But... I also know that sometimes you need extra help or training. So you will get a years access to the Wonder Mom Success Club portal. Which is full of trainings, workshops and the Wonder Mom Success Path that you can use as and when you need it.
Monday to Friday we have daily check-ins in the group. Keeping you accountable and forming a habit that you will take with you in the future.
This one habit alone will change everything, how you look and run your business and how you manage your time.
Once a week we have a group mastermind call. Bring anything you are stuck with. Many minds are better than one. It's also a great time to brainstorm ideas, tighten your copy or just celebrate the wins. No matter how big or small. We also have a work-along session where you can hop in declare what you are going to get done, then do it!
Each month we will have a 1:1 call. Where we dig into your progress so far and tweak your path depending on what is happening in your life. Whether it's a worldwide pandemic that forces you to take things in a different direction or you hit on a genius idea that you just have to act on.
There are limited spaces available
I have run masterminds for several years now, from 3 month intensives to the year long SPARK mastermind. This is what previous and current masterminders have to say...
The biggest a-ha! for me has been a much clearer understanding of how I use my time.
I have realized that I tend to take on too much, be overly optimistic about how much I can get done in a certain amount of time, and expect too much of "future me" (a dangerous combination!).
Just realizing this has made me more careful about what I say yes to, and I'm getting better at incorporating more wriggle room into my plans and front loading the work where possible.
Work with Jo in order to get your business off to a great start with a group of like-minded women and an amazing mentor who can give invaluable feedback and help you see things you might not realize on your own.
Before I joined Jo's mastermind I was unsure of where to go with my freelancing.
Whether or not I was going to be able to make it.
Now, I feel a lot more confident that I will be able to get where I need to go - whether it's working for myself or getting the right job that pays well enough.
A lightbulb moment for me was realising that writing down figures and numbers was so useful. I hadn't realised the effect that I could have on my followers/fans/website views with a little work.
And now I've got more of a routine going and have realised the things that are most important to me, and what kind of balance I need in my life to make me happiest.
I can't quite express how much better and more empowered I feel. I have:
a) got things done
b) learned tools to get further things done and - maybe most importantly -
c) learned to live positively with the things that I haven't got done.
I feel like a "can do" person again and it's great.
I learned a lot from what others posted and also just from having a safe forum to share my reflections along the way. Having all these members with different experiences and backgrounds helps tremendously with problem solving and seeing things in a different light.
My biggest change was learning to take things in stride and not try to do everything at once!

I help small business moms build their business around their family without giving up sleep or hiring a full time nanny.
I’m a Productivity and happiness Coach for Moms in business who want to put their family first without putting their business last.
I use a unique combo of Montessori (for raising independent, helpful kids) and little-known productivity hacks.
As a Brit in Japan I carved out my own path, and doing things my own way. Not being forced to wear uncomfortable business suits or having a soul sucking commute everyday. Instead I built my business on my own terms. Work the hours I want to work and when, so that I can spend quality time with my family and have time for my own passions too.
I know what it‘s like to move abroad and don't know anyone in the area, to have no family support or even easily available babysitters.
Now as a best-selling author, business owner, Montessori teacher and blogger since 2007 I get to help other moms create the life they love too.
When does the Spark mastermind start?
We kick off February 1st.
We will get you booked in for your first 1:1 ASAP to get your goal setting and planning session set up. Then you are ready to join the mastermind group. Everyone is on their own journey so we take yours as it's own unique path too.
When are the calls?
As the group is usually very international we figure out the best time for the group calls once everyone is signed up.
Daily check-ins are posted in the group each morning.
1:1 calls are flexible and can can be booked in using Jo's scheduler to suit your needs.
I'm based in Japan, all times are (JST) calls will be between 8AM and 8PM Monday to Friday.
We do sometimes move the call times if it suits the groups needs better but not without a consultation with each member first.
Where does it all take place?
I thought long and hard about this and because I am committed to "no fluff" and keeping things simple.
We have a private Facebook group for the daily check-ins.
We use a free app for your goal planning. You 1:1 calls are recorded and the recording will be added to a section in your planning app.
The calls take place over Google Meet.
Can I quit?
To be clear, this is NOT a monthly membership program. This is a 12 month mastermind with an installment plan.
We are looking for members who are ready to step up, do the work and commit not just to the Spark Mastermind but to themselves.
Knowing that you are paying for the support and help will push you into being more committed and determined to make it work. When you decide to join us you are committing to yourself and the rest of the Spark community for a full 12 months.
If that scares you a bit - that is good because you are more likely to stick with it!
If you are still not sure and would like to talk to me about it before signing up, book a free call. I want to be sure this is the right thing for you, it doesn't do either of us any favours if you sign up and it's not what you need.
Why should I pay for a mastermind?
Look, I get it. And I have run a lot of masterminds in the past, some free and some paid. I have also been a member of several masterminds, again, some free and some paid.
The difference is that with a free group you still need a leader/co-ordinator, someone to be the glue to hold it together. What tends to happen is that key person gets fed up after a while or has more important commitments and when they stop being the glue, the group falls apart.
With a paid mastermind, the facilitator has made that commitment to be the glue and hold strong for the whole duration.
I am 101% committed to helping you succeed because your success means my success, if you fail, that reflects on me too, so you can bet your bottom dollar I am going to be behind you all the way, right to the finish line.
I'm an introvert, is this the right place for me?
Introverts unite... separately!
It is funny you mention this, as an introvert myself I know it can be hard to join a new group but it's also the reason why I keep the mastermind small. It is much easier for everyone to get their say, share their ideas and ask questions when you are in a small intimate group. So don't worry, you have found your space.
Extroverts? You are welcome too!
Can I stop and start as I please?
This is a 1 year program, unless their are exceptional circumstances (to be agreed on with Jo) the program can not be stopped and started willy-nilly. We understand that life has its ups and downs and sometimes you may need to step back for a while. This is why the Kaizen planning system works so well, because you can take those times into consideration as you plan your time.
What's in the Wonder Mom Success Club?
To start with there is the Wonder Mom Success path which is created to help you set up your home, kids and yourself for success. Each week we tap into one of the steps in the success path so that you can make sure you are on track.
We also have a library of training from guest experts. From SEO to mindset, just hop in and watch what you need at the time.
Before working with Jo I was overwhelmed and without a clear path. Now I'm more organized. I know it is better to take a few minutes everyday and plan the day, as well as looking at the small picture, and then the big picture. Looking at little achievements helps to reassure myself when I'm feeling overwhelmed.
The biggest change for me was accountability. If I wrote I would do something for a certain day, even if I was not feeling at my best or had some last minute thing, I would do everything to achieve it. If it is not written or written for other to see, it is easier to postpone it.
Mom and Lawyer
What did I get out of Spark? Even though I was not the most active of the group participants, I was always pressured (in good ways) to stay on track, and knowing that there are people who are there to share you thoughts and ups and downs was wonderful. So mental support and a sense of belonging were the two keys things for me.
I've been making more money this year than I have last year. Even though my university job got cut in the spring semester. So yeah, even without the university job income, just with my business, I was able to make more money. And then I was looking over my online classes and online products and I was like, wow, I didn’t think I made this much with my online stuff. Cool. So that was an unexpected win.
