Introducing Growth Quarters mastermind

The Growth Quarters mastermind is a select group of small businesses all with similar business models (selling creative products at markets and online) who work together to grow and improve each-other’s businesses. 

Growth Quarters facilitates a combination of brainstorming, discussion, education and peer accountability to sharpen your business and personal skills. This mastermind group will challenge you to set greater goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them. 

Members of our community are at various levels of business, from passionate start-ups to long-term established businesses growing to the next level.

Unlimited opportunities to have your questions masterminded. 

Regular accountability check-ins to keep you on track to achieve your goals

Access to an online education portal with dozens of ‘quick win’ tactics to implement and course videos, tools, templates and downloads with new content being added regularly.

Access to a network of business specialists and industry contacts… (We all know a big key to success in business is WHO you know!) 

Opportunity to meet, get to know and work with incredible people worth knowing! 

Take a walk through of the Mastermind

What does it take to be a Growth Quarters mastermind member?

Mastermind With Similar Businesses

Your business is unique, but there are many things similar between creative businesses. They have similar customers, marketing methods, pricing structures, places to sell etc. It’s important that our community is filled with people who have similar and relatable businesses… There is very little value in masterminding with lawyers, accountants, or even worse an engineering company trying to sell million dollar contracts to Rio Tinto… You need to be masterminding with businesses with similar challenges and opportunities to you.

Creative Market Business

We are strictly for creative people who sell online or at market events. For example: homewares, jewellery, candle makers, skincare products, gourmet products, fashion and accessories, wall and paper art to name a few. You do not have to retail at Perth Upmarket to be considered.

Growing Business With Ambition

Growth Quarters has been developed with small independent creative businesses in mind. It doesn’t matter where you are in the business cycle as long as you have the drive and passion. We accept both creatives wanting to launch a new business from start up, and established business owners who are serious about growing their business quickly.

Attitude is EVERYTHING

THE secret to success is WHO we let into our community. We are extremely picky. Anyone who has ever been part of a Facebook group will know just how quickly a group goes bad when the wrong people are allowed in… Complaining, Drama, Insults, Self-Promotion… We don’t tolerate any of that.  

Specifically, we ensure the people we accept into our community are people who: 

  • are prepared to contribute and bring value to the group discussion 
  • are kind and generous with their time 
  • genuinely want to support others and be supported 
  • act with total honesty, respect and compassion  
  • are optimistic and upbeat 
  • are committed, not just interested 
  • can respect confidences 
  • are willing to both give and receive advice and ideas.  

This group is NOT suitable for people who just want quick results with no effort.  

How Was Growth Quarters Born?

"After working with market stall owners for close to a decade through my market event business, Perth Upmarket, I heard the same questions again and again… I saw that one thing stopping creatives succeed was that they did not have the tools, resources or accountability to get them to where they needed to be.  

I really wanted to help market stall owners create successful thriving businesses, not just at markets, but also in between. I wanted to provide creatives with the tools and support to grow so they can create abundance for themselves, their families and their communities.  

For the last 3 years I personally have been part of a mastermind group myself and have been investing about $500/month to help me achieve my goals. I receive tremendous value from it and wanted to bring a similar concept to my customers in a much more leveraged, flexible and affordable fashion. That’s how Growth Quarters was born.” 

Justine Barsley ~ Creative Director and Founder of Perth Upmarket 

What’s the investment?

To ensure that our community is only filled with likeminded people who will bring each other value members you will also be asked to make a $50/month investment to go towards the running to the mastermind. 

This also helps to filter out the serious business owners from the tyre-kickers. Also, it’s important to note that there is no lock in contract, so at any time if you don’t feel you are getting value you can leave. In saying that, the value of this community is the long-term relationships, connections and education you receive. 

We aren’t interested in a community of constantly changing members with only 1-month-long ambitions, so if you aren’t serious about this being at least a 6-12 month plan, we would rather you not join to begin with.  

What do Growth Quarters members say?

"I have just completed the Getting Started course and I am really excited about all the information I now have to make a success of my ideas! I found the article on how to extend your market day reach especially useful- will be printing that off and pinning it up in the studio…thanks Justine – I am inspired."

"I am lucky enough to have been involved in the pilot for the Growth Quarters Mastermind. Despite being a bit of a market veteran, I have been surprised by how much I have learnt. It’s been a great way to brush up on your knowledge and to learn new techniques. As a solo entrepreneur, the accountability aspect is invaluable. I cannot wait to continue with the course as it grows and to continuing improve my skills and knowledge. Thanks Justine!"
