Podcast S2. Ep. 18: Why Joining a Mastermind is the Best Thing You Can Do in Your Business, with Kylee Van Horn

“I think people look at somebody who is successful in their business, and then they go, “I should just replicate what they’re doing. That will make me successful too.” – Kirsten [00:19:20]

If you’ve never joined a mastermind, you are missing a big opportunity to grow your business in leaps and bounds. Working with a business mentor or coach can really help you see where you are stuck in your business and what you need to change. Yes, we all want to make money as business owners, but we also want the freedom to pursue our passions. It’s a balance that isn’t always easy to find, but you can absolutely do it with the right mindset.

In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Kylee Van Horn, the founder and owner of a sports nutrition business. Kylee and I discuss why having a profitable business isn’t enough to make you happy, why she decided to join my mastermind and how it helped her, and why your online messaging needs to be authentic.  

We also talk about the importance of experimentation in your business. You have to keep trying new things to see what works for you. You and your business needs will evolve, so don’t be afraid to change things up when you need to. 


What’s in this episode:

  • [06:15] How Kylee and I met, and how we both had businesses that were profitable but also felt like they were crushing us

  • [19:06] Why you should keep experimenting in your business to find what works for you, plus why visibility matters in the online space
  • [25:15] Why your messaging matters when it comes to social media, and why you should just be you
