A closer look at the 6 things SUN can deliver for you
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead
As a Mastermind group member, you will be placed in a group of 4-10 selected individuals who will align with what you are trying to achieve.
You will have the opportunity to participate in highly confidential professionally facilitated weekly online mastermind meetings where you will get a chance to update everyone on your progress and hurdles.
It is rewarding to meet on a weekly basis with a small group of talented and trusted people.
People who have faced (or are facing) many of the same challenges as you.
They will freely share information with you, encourage you, and provide you with accountability, support, tools, and best practices you need to move forward. They are not competitors. They are allies and collaborators. You are not alone.
It is a community where people believe with you what you want for yourself, your business, and the world.
It is all about helping you succeed at being who you know you already are. Your group will help keep you motivated and focused, so that you can develop and make good on your personal and professional vision.
The meeting start with each member briefly summarizing highlights of their previous week.
Next, 1 or 2 members will be featured under the ‘Spotlight’ where they will put forward an opportunity or problem they are grappling with, and the group will help them address it. Occasionally, the meeting will feature a short presentation from a subject matter expert followed by a Q & A.
The meetings always finish with members committing to their best course of action to advance things before the next meeting.
Of course, you can choose to continue on your own…but it turns out that things can go a lot better, faster and easier if you don’t.
In fact, the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study and found that the probability of completing a goal if you simply have an idea or a goal is 10%.
However, if you make a specific accountability commitment with others this number skyrockets to 95%.
“If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.”
― Jack Canfield
Purpose and Plan
Discovering and being true to your purpose, is an important component for not only your happiness, but also for the happiness of those you serve.
Simplified one-page business plans and monthly KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) tracking is a powerful part of what is in store for you. Helping you find, stay clear, and act on your purpose is an integral part of everything you will experience being part of this community.
One of the biggest challenges you have as a leader and entrepreneur is to manage yourself and your time. Building your personal management system involves getting clear on your priorities and figuring out a way to do less and achieve more. SUN is purpose-built to do just this very thing for you.
Businesses that are built with intention and systems tend to be high profit and low stress. They are easier to run, and don’t necessitate you thinking about them and being there working all the time. Imagine your company at maximum performance…running like a Swiss clock.
SUN teaches you how to embed something called the P4 Advancement System™ in your organization to help you achieve maximum performance, focusing on four fundamental objectives:
- Planning Real-time strategic and operational plans that communicate a persuasive vision, prioritized goals and effective projects.
- People Processes that ensure optimal: hiring, on-boarding, coaching, promotion, and demotion.
- Performance Support and measurement of strategic action within clear operational plans.
- Promotion Internal understanding of plans and progress, alongside compelling external sales and marketing.
You will be offered valuable perspective and insights, prioritized clear actions, new tools, and step-by-step plans and templates to follow to take you through your next challenge.
It takes work, but having a business plan and systems in place is extraordinary – and it will help you attain much higher levels of growth, free up your time, and lower your stress once it is implemented.
“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.”
― Amy Poehler
As opposed to the isolation you can often feel when you’re working by yourself (i.e. when you are on the road, in an airport, in your house, or at a coffee shop)…when you login to a virtual coworking space…you’ll immediately feel a sense of activity and purpose.
Coworking has the effect of boosting your engagement and helping you to thrive as you leave the “I’m all alone” mindset and instead plug into the energy of like-minded people who want to dream, plan, and do big things.
In your cowork space there are purpose-built rooms where you can:
- get input on on of your projects
- help or get help, with a task that has you stuck
- partner with others in a “shut up and work” SAW session as you all tackle your most procrastination worthy tasks together.
- attend speed networking events
- attend a session being offered by a expert in a topic that grabs your interest
- take a break in the virtual common area and chill.
…or just plain work on your stuff while others are doing the same.
Coworking spaces drive: community, accountability, collaboration, learning, and sustainability for all that come in through their doors.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
― Benjamin Franklin

“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished… it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
― Denzel Washington
The lives of those (including the rich and famous) who have lived purley for themselves end empty and often horribly.
It is with this in mind that SUN members make a personal decision to donate a percentage of some combination their organization’s: time, products/services, profits, or equity to causes (their own or someone else’s) they want to have a direct impact on.

"When I first joined SUN, I wasn't surprised my business moved forward. What was a surprise was how it changed my life."
"At 7am I thought my day...the mountain ahead of me...was unachievable. At 7:05am after a SUN call I thought I could climb Everest. That's what this process does."
“SUN has helped me get organized and develop a clear plan to get the dream out of my head and into action. The value far surpasses the investment.”
"Kim's programs are second-to-none. What sets him and his programs apart is that he actually cares and wants to see you succeed. If you want to reach your business goals this year, SUN is the place to start."
"What I received from SUN: exceptional business and marketing knowledge and experience, understanding and accountability, professionalism, promptness and community, and support and encouragement to Stand Up Now (not someday). Thank you, Kim!"
"Sun provides you with first hand knowledge from like-minded people who have personally experienced what you are presently going through. It gives you great comfort knowing you are not alone and gives you valuable knowledge on how to fix or alter the situation to your advantage.”
"After finishing up at Techstars there was a noticeable void in my week, I really miss the "CEO Standup Meeting" where I got to discuss weekly pain points of the company with my peers and have the ability to ask for help. I found that sense of community and mentorship with SUN."
"The great thing about participating in the SUN mastermind was a mix of two things: 1. Hearing what other people were struggling with was comforting, eye opening and offered a good environment to share both your problems and your ideas. 2. Because of the mix of backgrounds, industries and even geographical location we were able to share those ideas with people we might never have met otherwise."
"I hate business groups. They're generally a self-serving, self-interested waste of time. SUN is different. Being a SUN member gives me access to a collective of wisdom, experience and accountability that adds real and immediate value to my business."
