Like many creators, Ryan Claytor has far more creative projects in the works than he can possibly complete. As a result, he’s feeling less productive than he’d like. Know the feeling? Well, this group of creators certainly does, and in this mastermind style session, they’ll provide Ryan some support for taking control of his project load.

Highlights of This Session Include:

  • An important message from George which we ALL need to hear.
  • The hidden time suck that is “context switching” and why the more projects you have, the more time you’ll lose to this foe.
  • One simple question to ask yourself about the project’s you’re working on.
  • Plus: Tyler shouts out an amazing anthology featuring many members of the ComixLaunch Mastermind.

Today’s Session is Brought to You By…

…the ComixLaunch Mastermind. If you would you like to meet once a month with a group of serious, like-minded creators to talk about your projects and creative business for mutual support and accountability this year, go to and get on the interest list.

If the idea of meeting regularly with a small, focused group of like-minded creators to share resources, sharpen and strengthen your creative business strategies and to support each other in mutually benefical ways, sounds good to you… stop whatever it is you’re doing now and get over to to get on our interest list.

I’ve been running these creator mastermind groups for nearly four years, and I’ve seen how powerful they can be for the right creators.

See Every creator has blindspots…

We ALL have things we can’t see from the inside.

We all struggle with self doubt and paralysis, and we are all prone to getting stuck.

Albert Einstein said “we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

If you’re ready to get new perspectives and solutions on your challenges from creators who have overcome them, a mastermind can provide that.

The right mastermind will support you, not let you fail, and push you to new heights.

But I get it… Many of you have gotten to this point largely on your own and are proud of that fact.

(And you should be!)

But at a certain point, what got you here, won’t get you there.

Your network may be your single greatest asset, and being a part of a dedicated mastermind group will quickly become the most invaluable part of your network.

Joining a MasterMInd may be just what you’re looking for IF…

…if you’re overwhelmed by all of the possible projects you could do and need CLARITY on what you should be doing to actually achieve your creative goals.

…you’re looking to create your biggest launch ever and have a breakthrough year.

…you feel like strategy, coaching, community and support are currently missing in your creative life and business.

…you’re ready to grow your network of quality peers to include serious creators with whom you can talk strategy, growth, and taking your creative business to the next level.

If that sounds like you, go over to today, and I can’t wait to start working with you!

Of all the projects you’re working on, which one would make you cry the most if you had to let it go?
