Would you like a business you're proud of?
To make the money you dream of?
Without losing your integrity, your mind or your investment?



You're the perfect fit for the Rise Mastermind if:

  • You're a small business owner or entrepreneur.
  • You've had your business for a while but results are sporadic.
  • Income is between £2k and £10k per month.
  • You have a clear offer, product or service and you're keen to extend this into new packages and products.
  • Your community size is as small as 200 or as big as 5000.
  • You, my darling business owner, are ready to get serious about your business.


You have big dreams.

You've taken that big leap to launch your business to the world.

You've read all the advice, you’ve taken all the courses, you may have invested in a coach.

But something isn't quite clicking into place.

You’re done with theory and information overload.

You're done with a one-size-fits-all approach.

You’re done with holding yourself back from the next level of growth.

It's time to throw that cookie-cutter plan out.

It's time for you to pave your way to success.

It's time for you to RISE.







Each year I select two groups of business owners to join me on a quest for success.

The results? 

Doubling their monthly income within 2 months.
Having the best month ever and selling over $20k in that month.
Creating and launching brand new programs and offers within months.
Expansion with a new investor, new office and new team.
Introducing brand new income streams.
Waiting lists of clients.

And these are just a few of their stories.

Is it time for you to be part of that list up there? 


The Rise Mastermind kicks-off in January 2018 and is a 6 month powerful business makeover that will transform your business, bank balance and life. It stops you feeling lonely, vulnerable, unsure and scared, and instead makes you feel connected, supported, confident and excited about your goals.

We work closely together to create the right strategy for you and your clients using my experience of creating and building successful business for over 17 years.

At the end of the 6 months, you will:

Have increased your income AND profit.
Have a targeted business strategy that's already getting big results.
Have a clear planning framework to keep you on track.
Know how to charge your worth.
Know how to find your clients and convert them.
Know how to create killer programs, products, membership sites and masterminds.
Have a sales and marketing system that's right for YOU.
Have a growth plan that will take you to the next level.
Have a toolbox of proven frameworks, tools and processes.
Have a group of business friends that will last a lifetime.


Hear from current masterminders

Marie Yates

"There’s something so powerful about Gemma’s mastermind. It’s a magical combination of business development, the mindset necessary to run a successful business and one-to-one support in a group setting. Gemma’s ability to understand each business, offer bespoke guidance and enable peer support is phenomenal. The synergy between having access to Gemma’s coaching and advice while also learning from and celebrating with the other group members means business growth is unparalleled. Having struggled for years to get to where I would like to be, I’m now well on my way in only three months and can’t wait to see what the next eight months brings. Gemma, through her kindness, expertise, wisdom and integrity is a game-changer."

Anna McLoughlin

"Gemma is an online business dream machine. Give her your problems, and she’ll generously help you solve them. As part of her inspiring mastermind of wonderful women, I now have access to a whole heap of priceless tools and processes I couldn’t have accessed otherwise, I’m on target to have almost doubled my income this year and I’ve hit goals that I dreamt of for 10 years within 4 months! As a recovering perfectionist, that’s just huge for me and the most exciting part is that I know it’s only a fraction of what I’ll achieve now that my mindset has shifted so radically. Gemma is the real deal, you’ll never regret working with her."

Elsewine Rietveld

"Being part of Gemma’s mastermind is an amazing experience – a focused boost for your business, with like-minded, wonderful people. I’ve been taking my first steps converting my group trainings to an online course, but I started out a step too far, leaving out some of the essentials. Gemma has a way of being critical and to-the-point in a loving and supportive way, and after each call, I cannot wait to take inspired action on what we talked about. I needed a smaller course to start with and with Gemma's guidance created it in 5 days from ideas- on-paper to ready-to-launch!  Get in while you can, because everyone wants to work with her or hire her - she’s brilliant, real and authentic."

Karen Quinn

"Joining Gemma's mastermind is the best decision I've ever made. I've taken huge strides forward in all aspects of my business, including writing some new offers which immediately covered the cost of joining! I am much more visible than before and I feel good about it. The vibe is encouraging, supportive and safe. Gemma did a fabulous job of curating a well balanced group of mutual cheerleaders from different industries. It's been fabulous and I don't want it to end!"

Martine Metaxas

"Gemma has a wealth of experience and loves what she does.

I know that she wants my success probably more than I - and it's not just a question of ‘her client success rates' it's something she lives and breathes, along with her dedication to her client and her integrity.

You deliver what you promise and more."

Hilde Kloppbakken

"OMG! I just calculated that I've sold over £20k this month ALONE! That's my best month ever!

£14k in online courses, one mastermind spot at £3k and one 1:1 spot for £3.5k!

Pinch me! I've just bought a Mac and I'm ordering tickets to somewhere warm NOW!

(And ladies, listen to Gemma and get f-ing VISIBLE! This is mostly because of organic reach, I've only spent £150 in FB ads)."

This is what you get

My masterminds are like no other. A mixture of carefully designed group program, one to one support, mastermind and digital marketing training that shows you how to create a strong brand, build an engaged tribe and increase your income.

As soon as you start the program, we look at your Business Strategy using my 10 Step Business Strategy Framework. This gives you a solid business foundation to grow from and has been a game changer for past clients.

We'll create your Smart Marketing System where we uncover which marketing activities are right for YOU and your business, and create an easy to implement system that runs like clockwork.

Then we'll design your 90 Day Implementation Plan, ready to roll out across the next 3 months. This is reviewed and repeated after the 90 days are up.

For the entire 6 months of the program, you will receive customised feedback on your business as well as unparalleled support, which includes:

  • 2 live video group calls per month where you get group support for your business and direct support from me. And the option to add-on one-to-one calls if you need individual support from me.
  • Private business vault with all call recordings, links and documents I share during the mastermind. This is yours forever.
  • Private Facebook Mastermind Group with daily inspiration, support and accountability from your fellow masterminders and me. This is very active and becomes your safe space, to share all of yourself.
  • Lifetime membership of my Simply Smart Business Academy, think of this as Digital Marketing 101, jam- packed full of all the trainings you need to implement everything in your business strategy and marketing system, saving you time and effort working it out for yourself.
  • Pop up training to cover exactly what you need, this includes selling skills, creating funnels, Facebook Ads, copywriting, launching, mapping out evergreen sequences ... and whatever else crops up.
  • The right guidance to help you create your own optin, course, membership site, mastermind, packages, services, events, retreats and any new income streams you want to add.


The option to upgrade to a live, in person intensive mastermind day with me at the stunning Stanbrook Abbey.

The option to upgrade to monthly one to one coaching from me alongside the group coaching.

Expert Sessions from some big hitters, helping you with things like leadership, messaging, sales, mindset, self-care, building a community. Current experts include Kendrick Shope, Jason Van Orden, Jadah Sellner, Jo Gifford, Rebecca Bass, Tracy Litt, Krisha Young, Heather Jones, Anna McLoughlin.

Pop up Income Boosters when you're worried about income. This was a new addition to my current mastermind and a BIG hit. I've put together a 5 Day Income Booster challenge that I run in the group as and when you need it. Helping you to get your offers out there and sell them fast! This is a great exercise for those people worried about paying for the mastermind (which pays for itself, and then some). 

Launch Hubs for those of you launching while you're in the mastermind, I will put a hub of launchers together and keep you accountable with my launch planners and scripts. This gives you that extra support that relieves the stress of launching. 

Scripts & templates galore including email scripts, sales scripts, funnel scripts, marketing and sales plan template, sales page scripts and all frameworks, templates and other goodness I've created over the years.

The Mothership my collection of financial, sales and business spreadsheets that I use to run my own business (this is like gold-dust!).

But ... this isn't right for everyone
(and I mean that, it's not just a marketing ploy)

I will be committing to this 100%. Your success is my success and I WILL put the work in with you. But I need you to do the same. If you can't, it might not be your time.

You need to be open to full-on scrutiny on both your business and finances.

If you're fully committed to this, The Rise Mastermind can turn your business, and life, around. But demand is high and I need to be sure I put the right business owners together.

The right fit is imperative to the success of the group and I'll be looking to match mindset, business level, personality and integrity.

Interviews are offered and conducted on a first-come-first-served basis, and are a two-way process (we both need to work out if this is right for you).  But this doesn't guarantee your spot. I will inform the successful applications once interviews are complete.

The results my clients have created include:

  • Hilde had her best month ever with over £20k income.
  • Glyniss created a new high-end program and sold two spots within a month.
  • Marie created a brand new program after a light bulb moment and sold 15 spots, within a month.
  • Kerri doubled her income in 2 months and got onto page 1 of Google.
  • Rachel sold out a brand new program and added an extra £5k to her income in a month. She later pivoted her business as she uncovered her true calling, one that challenges the status quo and has far more meaning for her.
  • Sara had her highest monthly income, just 3 months after working together.
  • Anna launched her course within 3 months (she’d been trying to do this for a decade!).
  • Jen brought her fledgling new product idea to life within 4 months, was inundated with sales and now has an investor to help her grow her business.
  • Karen launched a new income stream in under a month, after hiding this talent for years and has a range of products due to launch in 2017/18.
  • Anne introduced a whole new business and revenue stream within 2 months and later hooked into her true mission with her business, completely refocusing her message with far more impact.
  • Sam hit over £1.2 million in sales within 4 months of launch.

And as for me, well I’ve run two successful businesses and received an Entrepreneur of the Year Award for my first business over 10 years ago. I've had a £70k launch, a £90k month and run a multi-six figure business now.

Noomi Natan

"If you are thinking of joining a mastermind, definitely join Gemma's. She's the real deal. There is no cookie-cutter stuff, no fluff. Gemma goes above and beyond.

She will teach you all the stuff you need to get your business moving so much faster - and she does it in a way that makes it all much simpler. She'll give you the right balance of support and challenge and she goes way beyond what you'd expect. If there is no waiting list for her mastermind you're in luck. I am only two month into it and I can honestly say, if you're worried the money is a stretch - do it. If you're considering your options - choose Gemma. If you're doubting yourself - choose Gemma.

Her mastermind is worth every penny. And she attracts some fab ladies so you'll get some amazing business buddies."

Olivia Hill

"Doing the Mastermind has been an amazing experience.  As a start-up it's given me the direction, focus and mindset I've needed for that all important big push to get set up.

Not only do you get access to Gemma's strategy workbook, 90 Day Planner and her razor sharp business mind, but there is something incredibly powerful about group learning.

All the women in our group have formed an incredible bond and I have no doubt we will continue to help and encourage each other long after the mastermind has finished.

Gemma gets you to answer the hard questions, to dig deep to bring out your unique message, learn how to grow and be a business owner and keeps you motivated in an encouraging way to meet your goals."

Kara Goodrich

"Gemma's mastermind is definitely like no other. Carefully selected in a group of like-minded sassy entrepreneurs, you all go on a unique journey together supporting, collaborating and guiding each other every step of the way with Gemma leading the pack, sharing her immense wisdom and many many wise words.

It's a journey that takes you on highs and lows but gets the best out of you and the end result will only end in success.

Whether you are starting out, looking to expand or re-visiting your vision it's a unique experience that really helps you to identify and fine tune where you are, what your goals are and how to get there. You'd be silly not to and you meet some great people along the way."

Sarah Sternberg

"You know the saying, "It's like herding cats"? That's what it felt like when I wanted to grow my business to the next level but my ideas were like herding cats - they were all over the place! Enter the cat whisperer, Gemma, who made sense of my desire to grow yet spoke to the anxiety in my voice about how to do it.

Gemma provides practical tools that will focus you and help you create habits that make you a more productive entrepreneur. Her systems and philosophy perfectly aligned with mine because they were simple to implement. Her advice and our monthly coaching calls are the icing on the cake because she encourages you to continue down the path of resistance (notice I didn't say least resistance).

I needed a coach like Gemma to help me build a foundation that I can grow from and use at any stage of my business.

Definitely hire Gemma if you want to be surprised at just how much potential you have within you; a revelation that will only lead to a more profitable business!"

Rachel Foy

"Being a part of Gemma’s mastermind has been nothing short of incredible. I came into it needing some clarity and came out feeling like a match has been lit underneath me, I’m on fire!

She helped me see things which I hadn’t been able to before and with her expert eye and her gentle nudges, I have completely repositioned my business, created new offerings, had my biggest month to date and I have so many things in the pipeline which I am truly excited about.

The space she created was beautiful, safe and non judgemental. I know the other mastermind ladies will be life long biz buddies of mine and I also know that this won’t be the last time that I will be working with Gemma.

She was a blessing that came into my life just at the right time. If you get a chance to have her in your life and your business, grab it, you won’t regret it!"

JJ Miller

"Being part of Gemma's mastermind has been nothing short of game-changing. She helped me see the value in my work and encouraged me to up my prices, gave me new ways to market my company, helped me find (brilliant!) ways of making passive income and brainstormed a stream of ideas that will keep me busy for the foreseeable future.

Working with Gemma and the other people in the mastermind has given me a newfound confidence I don't think I'd have gained on my own. I felt supported, brave, talented and inspired. Knowing you have Gemma (and her vast amount of knowledge) to turn to on those days where you struggle, is like having a really comfy safety net to fall into. She's a ray of sunshine and a business encyclopedia all rolled into one.

The mastermind has, without doubt, been the best move I could have made for my business. The change in my income has been incredible - and the change in me has been too. I highly recommend this to everyone looking to up their business game."


  • You get access to a Business Mentor & Digital Strategist (that’s me!). My expertise includes over 17 years of digital marketing experience of working with brands, corporates, agencies and small businesses, and over 5 years business mentoring experience working with hundreds of small business owners.
  • I've been lucky enough to work with some of the world's biggest brands, like Universal, BBC, National Geographic and Roche. I take that knowledge and apply it to YOUR business. 
  • I've created two multiple six-figure businesses of my own, the first I won an award for. 
  • I have integrity at my core (in fact it's my leading business value) and deliver on my promises. In a world full of coaches that talk a great talk but don't walk the walk, this is HUGELY important. 
  • I have a psychology degree and perfectly merge this training with my business acumen to deliver mindset support that's tailored to YOUR needs.
  • I'm the perfect balance of coach and consultant. I know how to coach you to help you come to the right conclusions yourself, but when you need an extra push, offer you the perfect solution to move you forward.
  • I've been an expert trainer for over a decade, training for the Guardian, Channel 4 and many others. I bring this training to you, through my academy and pop-up trainings whenever you need them. 
  • This is a proven mastermind, my members have had some amazing breakthroughs and successes. We look at Mindset, Strategy and Action. You cannot succeed without all three.
  • I've had members of my mastermind leave other, well known, masterminds to join mine ... because they weren't getting the results they needed. They are now. 
  • I take your investment in me VERY seriously. I know it's a big decision. I know how much you have riding on it. I will do EVERYTHING I can to help you get you the results you need. 
  • I'm extremely selective about who joins my masterminds and turn many people down. Having the right group is key to the success of these masterminds, which means you will be part of an exclusive group of complementary business owners that are perfect for you and your business.
  • You get access to my team of copywriters, designers and digital specialists to help you implement your plans.
  • We'll laugh, cry, celebrate, and push-on-through ... together! My previous mastermind groups are still great friends and will continue to support each other as they grow. THIS is hugely important to me, I put people together that will genuinely compliment each other. This chemistry is key to a successful mastermind.
  • My WHY is to help people bring their business dreams to life. I want to do that for you.


The Rise Mastermind is £4000 or £667 per month (Ex VAT for UK folk)
which is around $5246 or $875 per month for US folk.

This price will go up for my next 10 month mastermind, so if you're on the fence, jump now. I fully expect you to earn that money back within a few months, and then some. Previous masterminders have had 3, 5 and 10 times their investment back.

If you'd like to discuss this with me before applying, book a call by emailing us here.

I run an application process for my masterminds as it would be wrong of me to allow people to join without checking this is right for them or the group. My groups are very carefully curated as the dynamic is hugely important and has a big impact on results. So rest assured my friend, you'll be joining an exclusive group that's right for YOU. 



Now, some of you will get to this point and think you can't join. You may think you can't afford it, you may think you don't have the time. You may think you're not ready. But experience has shown me that more often than not, that's about fear. Not money, not time, or anything else. Just fear. 

I want you to know I understand. I've been where you are. I've seen programs and masterminds that have made me so scared to take the leap. Programs and masterminds with huge price tags. But, my darling, I took the leap. And each time I did, I was right. My business wouldn't be where it is now if I hadn't invested in my own coach and mastermind. 

I get how scary this is, I get how important this investment is to you and I take it very seriously.
Your success is why I do this and I'll do everything in my power to help you bring those business dreams to life, together. 


I'm just starting out, is this for me? Your business needs to be active and earning between £2k and £10k per month. If your business is still an idea, my Simply Smart Business Academy might be a better option.

Can I leave The Mastermind? No, this is a 6 month commitment to the growth and transformation of your business. I will only accept people that are 100% comfortable with this. However, if you struggle with the group, we'll work together to deal with any issues you may have and if it comes to it, I'll switch you out to a one to one coaching program with me. You have my full support and commitment.

My priority is to make more money, will this help me? The first month will be focussed on strategy and planning, so I don't expect you to increase your income immediately, but once you're in the implementation phase, and you do everything I suggest, we can (and will) focus on income boosting activities. I also have my pop up Income Booster challenge which I run whenever people in the group need a quick income boost. 

What happens if I miss the calls? I urge you to ensure you make all calls, however I know things crop up from time to time. All calls are recorded and shared with you afterwards and you will be given the chance to ask any questions ahead of the call for me to answer live.

Can I pay monthly? Yes, if that's easier for you we can arrange that.

I'm worried I can't afford this. I fully expect you to make the full cost of the mastermind back within the first few months, and then some. This is a vital investment in your business and I know you need to see return on investment fast. 

I'd LOVE to speak to you about this, can I? Of course, book a call by emailing us here.




I'm Gemma Went, Business Mentor & Digital Strategist and I'd love to help you RISE.
Are you ready?
