WHAT IS A MASTERMIND GROUP?

Let's start with some basics first. A Mastermind Group is an exclusive group of 5 to 8 individuals with a common purpose. They meet on a regular basis to support each other in the fulfillment of their goals. Together they celebrate successes, brainstorm ideas, provide accountability, and use the power of their combined brain power to set, clarify, and accomplish goals.

WHAT IS THE HUNGRY FOR A COOKBOOK MASTERMIND GROUP?

The Hungry For A Cookbook Mastermind Group will be comprised of small group of cookbook authors and the group facilitator Maggie Green.

We will meet in a virtual conference room twice monthly from September 2017 - February 2018.

At every meeting members share successes, set goals, brainstorm ideas, and hold each other accountable to their goals and plans. Members also receive a short lesson on topics related to writing a cookbook such as commitment, who is your audience, time management, and route to publication.

A pre-determined, structured agenda and timed format ensures that everyone talks and that one person can't dominate the conversation.

WHAT MEMBERS SAY

For the last 3 years I have talked about writing a cookbook. It’s been all talk until I saw Maggie’s Hungry For a Cookbook Mastermind opportunity open, I literally could not apply fast enough. I love our meetings. Maggie’s information is perfection, she asks the right questions to make you think and brainstorming with others is the icing on the cake. Thanks to her motivation and knowledge I hope to publish my first cookbook in November 2017.

The Hungry For A Cookbook Mastermind group is such a supportive, inspiring and highly motivating process to get your book to market. Maggie is an amazing coach who has helped move me from stuck to unstuck and allowed me to push through my fears. She is an incredibly valuable resource and mentor for getting your book to market. The group environment is also a way to have an instant network of support and guidance that is priceless. I highly recommend this group to anyone who is looking to write any kind of book, including an ebook.

HERE'S WHY I DO THIS

 

maggieHi I'm Maggie Green and for the past 15 years. I've worked in the cookbook publishing industry - writing, editing, developing, and selling cookbook content. In addition I coach aspiring cookbook authors during the pre-publication phase of writing a cookbook.

I work as a cookbook coach for several reasons:

● I love cookbooks and believe they are still relevant in today's kitchens
● I want to share my knowledge learned from cookbook projects
● I want to show that writing a cookbook is possible
● I want to save you time and energy by focusing on the right things first
● I want to save you money as you find the correct publishing solution for your cookbook

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need special equipment to join a virtual teleconference?

No. Any desktop or laptop computer, phone, or tablet with a camera will be able to access the virtual video conference room. If you have a time when the camera isn't available, you can call in to the meetings and participate by phone.

While members are encourage to come to all meetings to get the most out of the program, I understand that sometimes things come up. A recording of each lesson will be available in the password protected members area.
