Common traps at this stage
My company sold! My next one will be bigger
I wrote a book! I need to make it a bestseller
I’ve achieved my goals; I’m still unfulfilled. I’ll set more ambitious goals
Many entrepreneurs put their lives on hold to chase moving targets, often without questioning their own motives outside of external pressures. Some are happy to hustle hard and continue to make sacrifices, always in pursuit of more. Others feel a sense of unease.
We serve entrepreneurs who chose courage over comfort. Who courageously question the path they're on.
The valley is filled with sluggish souls.
It’s not an easy choice to climb down the first peak. You might feel depleted or experience a crisis of meaning. -- For virtually all your life you've strived to become something, and now, your unbecoming everything you're not. --
It’s common for entrepreneurs to imagine that there will never be enough. But wealth doesn’t mean much without contribution or a sense of purpose. It’s no surprise that superficial standards leave us lacking, or worse.
A staggering 72 percent of entrepreneurs are affected by mental health issues
, directly or indirectly, compared to 49 percent of non-entrepreneurs. Relationships, physical health and family ties are common casualties. Our members know their personal lives need growth strategies as much as their businesses do. We strive to help them be better at both.
Common questions at this stage:
Can I live the rest of my days in limbo, a place where I'm not really happy, but I’m not unhappy enough to do anything about it?
Can I sacrifice who I am for who I want to become?
Am I fine with good enough?
The answers change our lives, goals, and the kind of company we choose to keep. They trigger a search for new mentors and new markers of success. If you make it this far, don’t settle.
The second mountain is greater in size and significance. Milestone achievements are redefined, with more space carved out for meaningful relationships, positive social impact and playful curiosity. There’s a shift when you realize entrepreneurs aren’t self-made; we are community made. It’s not easy to overcome, but you don’t have to do it alone.
At MMT, we are committed to helping you shift from success to significance. To become better business leaders, better partners, better parents, and better friends. We serve entrepreneurs who know that good is the enemy of great in all aspects of life.
There are loads of great books, conferences and events to help navigate rapid growth and reach the top of the first mountain.
If you’re a first-time founder in an early stage, we’re (genuinely!) happy to help you find another group.
At MMT, we talk about what comes next. We serve entrepreneurs seeking clarity to determine what the second peak means for them. Together, we’ll draw a roadmap.
Where members land on this journey is a better indicator for how MMT will serve them than traditional demographics. Screening exclusively for business size, industry or employee headcount doesn’t necessarily build strong connections. Many groups use these metrics. Not us.
We’re not concerned with the questions: How big is your company, or, How much money do you make? We prefer to ask: Would we want to have dinner with you? We’d rather you be fascinating than famous.
