A Virtual Mastermind Group For Entrepreneurs

Being an entrepreneur - particularly an online entrepreneur - is a solitary journey. Especially at the beginning. 

We’re striving to build our livelihoods online, but there’s something that can be really disconcerting about that. Much of what we’ve spent our precious time making lives ::gestures wildly:: out there.

In the ether. On the internet.

It’s a vulnerable thing to put your heart and mind out there for all to see, especially when you feel like it's not going well - or even when it is going well but there's nobody who understands how hard the journey was so celebrations fall a bit flat.

Plus, our work usually isn't tangible, which can make it hard to explain what we actually do. 

In short: the uphill trek of running your own online business or side hustle can feel lonely.

How do I feel by the end of the day?

Are you sad because you're on your own?


No, I get by with a little help from my friends…

Listen. We all need friends on this road. But it can be hard to find like-minded people who are building their businesses on the interwebs.

That’s where I come in...

Meet Your Mastermind Host

Meet Lauren Gaggioli, your online business coach.


Hi! I’m Lauren.

I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2008. In that time, I’ve:

  • built two educational businesses, one in-person tutoring company and one eCourse business in the same niche,
  • hosted a successful podcast in the college admissions space,
  • successfully sold my online ACT & SAT course business to a friend in the industry, and 
  • recently started two new businesses, one to support the vitally important mindset work needed to parent well and this one, a company dedicated to helping digital solopreneurs like yourself build their businesses stronger, faster, and better.

I’ve invested thousands of hours and dollars in ongoing education both in practical, tactical online business strategies and in leveling up my mindset. 

And I’ve attended numerous conferences and met incredible, kind-hearted entrepreneurs, many of whom I now count among my dearest friends.

Through all of this work, I’ve unearthed my Big Why and it is this…

I am here to help others actualize their unrealized potential.

What this pithy little statement does for me is point me to True North each and every day. 

It is my life’s calling to help people identify the areas of their businesses where they aren’t fully leveraging the opportunities available to them. Then I help them come up with a plan to take the action necessary to achieve the results they’re looking for.

Helping you fully realize your potential and bring that potential to bear in the marketplace and in your life beyond business is my calling.

So if that sounds like something you could use help with then I am here to support you.

Here's How The Virtual Mastermind Works

Most of the entrepreneurs I know are at tipping points in their businesses. 

They’ve been honing their craft for a long time. They’re ready to level up, but - before they do - they’re cash-strapped, time-strapped, or both.

While there are many wonderful options for joining a mastermind online, many are either prohibitively expensive or require a significant time commitment. 

I wanted to shift what an online mastermind group conventionally looks like to meet the entrepreneurs that I know where they are so they can get the support they need in a way that makes sense for them.

With that in mind, here’s how I host my mastermind groups instead…

When Does The Mastermind Group Meet?

I offer two 60-minute mastermind sessions per week, generally on Wednesday evenings at 5:30p (Pacific) / 8:30p (Eastern) and Saturday mornings at 8:00a (Pacific) / 11:00a (Eastern).

Who Can Join The Virtual Mastermind?

This mastermind group is for entrepreneurs. If you're an entrepreneur (or a long-time wantreprenreur), you can sign up to join a session.

Whether you've just begun your journey and are in the ideation phase or have had a business a while and want to level up, this group is a great place to find the support you need to keep going...and make some like-minded friends along the way!

What Will We Work On?

Because my hour-long virtual mastermind groups are capped at just six entrepreneurs, you will be sure to have the floor for a sizeable amount of time.

During these sessions, the entire group is here to help you...

  • work through any challenges you’re facing in your business, 
  • develop new ideas before you develop them into products and services, and 
  • support you as you optimize your strategic approach and celebrate your wins.

How Much Does The Mastermind Cost?

The biggest hindrance I see for most mastermind groups for entrepreneurs is the cost and time commitment required, so I've created the following pricing plans to aim to accommodate entrepreneurs at every level.

But I want to make sure that we're the perfect fit to work together too, so you can join your first mastermind meeting for just $25.

Initial Welcome Meeting: $25*

*Use one-time discount code FRIEND when purchasing a single session at checkout.*

After your first session, you can decide if we’re a good fit to work together on a more regular basis.

If you'd like to move forward with more regular sessions, you can either purchase your mastermind group meetings one-at-a-time or receive a discount by purchasing a 4- or 8-session packages in advance.

You retain complete control of your pace and your investment.

Ongoing, As-Needed Mastermind Group Pricing

Ready To Join The Mastermind Group? Getting Started Is Simple...

Step 1. Schedule your first mastermind group meeting.

The first step is to reserve your spot for your first mastermind meeting at the date and time of your choosing.


At present, I host the mastermind group online most*...


  • Wednesday evenings at 5:30p (Pacific) / 8:30p (Eastern)
  • Saturday mornings at 8:00a (Pacific) / 11a (Eastern)

When you purchase your initial mastermind session, be sure to click the "Redeem Coupon" button and use the one-time discount code FRIEND at checkout to get your first meeting for just $25.


Step 2. Fill out the pre-call questionnaire.

After you book your session, you will be sent a pre-call questionnaire by email. It includes just a few simple questions so I can get a sense of what you'd like to discuss on our call.

It takes no longer than 5 minutes to fill out and will give me the ability to provide the most value to you during our time together.

Please fill the questionnaire at least one day prior to our call so I have time to look it over and start brainstorming some ideas for you.

Step 3. Join the mastermind group on Zoom.

Once you've booked your spot in the mastermind session of your choosing and filled out the questionnaire, all that's left is to meet!


When you register, you'll receive a Zoom link by email.


Just hop on the call when it's time to meet, and I will see you there!

Frequently Asked Question

Where does the online mastermind group meet?

The mastermind group meets on Zoom. 

I start the meeting about 10 minutes before our official start time so we have a moment to chat before diving into our official working hour.

What happens if I’m the only one who books a mastermind session?

Winner, winner. Chicken dinner!

While I open up 6 spots for each hour-long group mastermind session, if you’re the only person who reserved a spot for the session, you get a private online business coaching session with me for the price of the mastermind session.

If even 1 person signs up, I will be there with bells on prepared to support you and your business goals. 

What kinds of questions should I bring to the mastermind group?

Honestly, you are welcome to bring anything you like that pertains to your business. 

This is a great place to:

  • workshop ideas for new products or services you’d like to offer,
  • get feedback on copy you’ve crafted for your emails or website,
  • talk through specific challenges or roadblocks you’re facing, or
  • discuss your workflow with an eye on improving your systems.

You’re also highly encouraged to bring your wins so we can celebrate with you. It’s always nice to have your success acknowledged by those who understand how hard won those victories are. 

We’re here to join you when you’re on top of the mountain, down in the valley, or anywhere in between on this entrepreneurial adventure. 

How far in advance can I book my virtual mastermind session?

You must reserve your spot no later than 48 hours prior to the session, but I have the full schedule published 2 months out so you can plan ahead and reserve future meetings on your calendar in advance.

While you’re able to change your reservation until 48 hours prior to the session because, ya know, life happens, I want to help as many entrepreneurs as possible with this mastermind. 

With that spirit of collaboration in mind, please reserve only the times that you’re genuinely committed to attending.

What if I have a package that’s expiring and there aren’t enough open sessions for me to book?

Listen… we’re all professionals here. Please pick a package that you’re reasonably certain you have the time to take full advantage of before it expires.

You have 180 days (about 6 months) to use your packages. And I offer two meetings per week most weeks on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. 

I also keep tabs on how many of your fellow digital entrepreneurs have purchased packages to ensure that I have enough room to accommodate everyone who has reserved time with me.

I do everything in my power to ensure that you will have the access you need to fulfill your packages, but it is your responsibility to show up and use what you have signed up for before the deadline.

What if I prefer private online business coaching to a group mastermind experience?

We can do that! I’d love to help you in whatever way serves you and your business best.
