Who we Serve

We ARE YOUR TRIBE

We are founders, partners and key leaders with an ownership stake in our Professional Services firms.

Our mastermind community is focused on helping one another make more, work less and sell our firms bigger and faster.
Here you get peer-to-peer mentoring, expertise sharing and Pro Serv specific programming you won’t find anywhere else.

Mastermind Communities: Hundreds of Minds are better than one.

Why A Mastermind community?

Because it works. Mastermind communities have been around for more than 200 years. The most famous mastermind community began when Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie got together regularly during the Industrial Age.

Today, there are hundreds of them. Some examples you might be familiar with are YPO and Vistage.

A mastermind community is a peer-to-peer mentoring group used to help members solve their problems by getting advice from other group members.

In Collective 54, you’ll connect with hundreds of exceptional founders and partners driving professional service firms across dozens of industries around the world.

What’s common among our members?

Members of our mastermind community are dissatisfied with one of three things:

NOT EARNING
ENOUGH MONEY

They are not earning enough money because their firm’s growth rate is insufficient.

WORKING
TOO MUCH

They are working too much because of the difficulty associated with scaling a business.

TOO LONG
TO SELL

It’s taking too long to sell the firm. Most of our members want to retire someday and will need an exit strategy to do so.

They join Collective 54 because they want to do what they are doing, but bigger and faster.

There is no playbook, no specific resource that helps a business like mine grow, scale, and eventually sell the company. Collective 54 has been instrumental in focusing on all my company’s problem areas and it's given me really good specific advice on how to solve those issues.
