Mutual support for women who run businesses

The Initiative Mastermind

Looking for your female business tribe?

You just found yours.


What is a mastermind?

A mastermind is a community of peers who exchange ideas, provide support, and offer sound advice for running a successful business. According to Forbes, a mastermind's purpose is to help you navigate challenges using the group's collective intelligence.

About this empowering community

As a tight-knit community, we help one another create more successful outcomes than any one of us could attain alone. We share openly in this safe space. We celebrate each other's wins and we communicate what works and what doesn't to help one another rise. 

When committed, motivated goal-getters gather in one space, a beautiful synergy happens. Actionable conversation flows, powerful experiences are shared so others can learn, and a new world of possibilities begin to emerge.

Words from current members


"The game changer I've been looking for"

The Initiative Mastermind has been the game changer I have been looking for! Combining actionable resources, accountability and feedback from other members I have been able to move the needle forward in my business in ways I've never thought possible. I have been able to develop funnels that have, for the first time, began to generate revenue on a consistent basis which has moved my business out of the 'hobby' phase and into something that is contributing to my households income. Continuing to learn and grow is contagious and I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT. - Mastermind Member



"This has taken a lot of the 'guess work' out of it for me"

Having a professional birds eye view on my business has helped me take my business to the next level and continue putting the correct systems into practice. We can't be an expert at everything when it comes to running a business successfully, but we can be a part of something greater that is designed to equip us with all we need to succeed. This has taken a lot of the "guess work" out of it for me. And that's The Initiative Mastermind!

What's there to lose?


What our members are like

We're a diverse group of open-minded entrepreneurs running mostly 5-figure small businesses that we each started on our own. We're coaches, consultants, bloggers, influencers, and store owners. Each one of us brings a unique perspective, experience, and expertise that others learn from.

We're welcoming, down-to-earth, inclusive, supportive, goal-oriented, and dependable. We're the sort of women who offer a warm smile at the grocery store, even though we've never met.

Some of us are married. Some of us are single. Some are divorced and some are re-married. Some of us are parents. Others of us aren't.

All of us are dreamers focused on executing big ideas.


How and why this community keeps growing

Having a community of peers who know your business well is vital to thriving as an entrepreneur. If your business growth has become slowed or stagnant, it's time to lean into community.

What got you here won't get you there. As your business evolves, your needs do too. Successful entrepreneurs aren't successful because they got lucky or knew it all. They're successful because they believed in themselves, applied grit, and surrounded themselves with people smarter than themselves. That's what this community is for.

Our members know that who they surround themselves with matters. If you want to be successful, spend time with successful people. If you want to achieve your goals, spend time with others who are striving to do the same.

What's required?

To provide an effective community for all members, we require the following:

  • Each member must be managing a business that is already generating revenue prior to joining. No MLMs as an only source of business revenue. If members started their own revenue-generating business and are also separately part of an MLM, they're good to go!
  • Members agree to make Power Sessions as a priority so all members can be in community minimally once per month.
  • Members bring an open mind and open heart. No dry, crummy cake eaters here! (I definitely borrowed this line from our amazing member, Leann, a life coach who's a bright ray of sunshine you'll LOVE meeting!).

Questions members had before joining

Is there a free trial?

Yes - come hang out with us for a week and see if it's your vibe. If it's not, there's no obligation to stay!

What can I expect upon joining The Initiative Mastermind?

You can expect a welcoming atmosphere, a focus on self-improvement, accountability for the dreams that were sewn into your heart, and a feeling of finally finding your tribe

Our community is laid out in an easy-to-understand platform called Mighty Networks that functions similarly to Facebook without all the distractions and cat pictures.

What are the requirements?

Requirements to join: 

1) A business you started (not an MLM) that is already generating revenue, 2) Commitment to attend once monthly Power Sessions, which are specially designed intensives focused on an actionable business topic to help you improve, 3) An open mind and an open heart.

Do I save money if I purchase annually?

Yes, savvy investor, you do! You'll save 17% (the equivalent of two months' worth of mastermind membership) if you join annually rather than month-to-month. The beauty of the annual membership is that it serves as commitment to yourself to stick with your business goals despite what can be difficult ebbs and flows throughout the year.

What is the community's facilitator like?

Oh, hey! That's me. I'm Francie Hinrichsen - self-appointed cheerleader of The Initiative Mastermind. I began from scratch a lean and profitable consulting business called Simply Integrated in 2015 and began a second profitable ecommerce business in 2016 - both equipped me with skills to grow something valuable out of zilch. I'm a goal crusher at heart, a Schitt's Creek fangirl (Daviddddddd!), and a natural encourager to my core. 

Sometimes I overindulge on exclamation points (!!!) when members share their wins, but that's only because I'm also jumping up and down in my home office located in Central Illinois, clapping my hands wildly to cheer for them. 

I'm an introvert, but most people don't believe it. I'm also a toddler mom, wife, Christ-follower, treadmill runner, wake-up-at-5am'er, and BIG dreamer working to grow and scale the value I have to offer into something that positively impacts 1 million women, though not just in this community alone (hot darn, simply typing that gives me chills). 

I created and carefully designed this community because I wanted to be surrounded with goal-getters like you.  I cannot wait to personally welcome you into this community of amazing women who blow me away with their determination and savvy ideas every. single. week.

Still have questions? I'm Francie your personal ambassador and I'm here to help! Email me directly at Francie@SimplyIntegratedLLC.com. We can even set up a Zoom call to chat about whether our community is a good fit for your needs.
