The Mastermind Curriculum
Week 1: Welcome to the Brand Storyteller Mastermind!
In our first meeting, we’ll focus on getting to know each other. We’ll do a round of introductions, and you’ll share your goal for joining the Brand Storyteller Mastermind. I’ll offer a preview of the agenda to come, and we’ll have some open time for questions and discussion so we’re ready to start strong. You’ll finish this week feeling like you’re in the right place and surrounded by a great group.
Week 2: Setting Storytelling Goals
This week we’ll talk about WHY we do brand storytelling at all. We’ll discuss some of the roles that storytelling can play in our marketing, for personal or business use, and we’ll discuss the three main goals of brand content. You’ll finish this week with clear brand storytelling and content goals.
Week 3: Anatomy of a Content Idea
We’ll start by getting on the same page, defining what a content idea really is, and I’ll provide you with some tools and tips for expanding your definition of content, so you can reach new creative heights. You’ll finish this week feeling inspired to generate hundreds of content ideas.
Week 4: Audience-Centric Content
This week we’re going to shift our storyteller mindset to one focused on our audience. I’ll talk about how to use your audience’s questions to inform your content strategy and share some tips for how to find those questions and build a strategy around them. You’ll finish this week with a clear sense of what content your audience wants and needs from you.
Week 5: Multipliers & Franchises
This week we’ll talk about how to turn one idea into many, as we discuss multipliers and recurring franchises that give your content calendar structure and repeatability. You’ll finish this week with inspiration for creating a scalable and structured editorial calendar.
Week 6: Mid-Mastermind Check-in
Believe it or not, we’re halfway through! This week we’ll pause to reflect on what we’ve done so far and share our progress on our goals. We’ll spend our time asking and answering questions, making adjustments, sharing challenges, and problem solving together. The goal is to make sure we’re still moving forward, and we’re anticipating any roadblocks before we get stuck!

This week we’ll focus on making our content trustworthy for our audience. We’ll talk about the importance of reputable sources, and I’ll share how to identify and find expert sources who can bring credibility into your content.

Week 12: Review & Wrap Up
You won’t believe our time is up already! We’ll go around and share our take-aways from our time together, our proudest accomplishments and the things we want to continue to work on.
