Does this sound familiar?

You’ve fulfilled society’s expectations and checked all the boxes


You excel at work, have great friends and family, and hobbies you enjoy


Yet, you still feel unfulfilled


You know there is something more inside of you to share with the world


And have untapped potential that you haven’t expressed

Imagine your life 5 years from now…

In one scenario, you continue down the same path, living up to external expectations and old conditioning.


Now, imagine a different scenario in which you start listening to the secret dreams that have been calling you and taking consistent action. 



Which path will you choose?

What is a mastermind?

A Mastermind Group is a community that comes together to grow together. It’s a group of peers who meet consistently to help each other achieve their goals by making step-by-step plans and holding each other accountable

Your Personal Board of Directors

Your mastermind group helps you make better decisions. To avoid tunnel vision and missed opportunities, a CEO always goes to her Board of Directors before making a big decision that will impact the trajectory of the company. Similarly, for your life and career decisions, you’ll get new perspectives and a range of valuable experiences. At the end of the day, you make the final decision, and your personal board of directors will support you. 

A Powerful New Network

You are the sum of the five people who you spend the most time with. The mastermind gives you a diverse and talented network of likeminded people who are creating extraordinary lives. You’ll collaborate to create new business ideas, get feedback on projects, and help you overcome personal issues. These are incredible, inspiring friends for life.

4-Phase Transformation

The year-long mastermind experience is broken down into four phases, so you have plenty of time for deep self-reflection, group feedback, and clear decision-making. No need to rush your transformation. Our process allows plenty of space and time for you create new, lasting habits, and enjoy the process. 

What You Get

Experiences from Mastermind Members

“The Spirit Drivers program was an amazing experience. Elise and Gregg are great teachers. They truly care about helping people maximizing their potential. 5 star review!”

“Spirit Drivers is an excellent tool for professional (and personal) growth. The community you develop with your group and the feedback available not only from them but from the leaders of the program are invaluable. The program is a shot in the arm of encouragement and direction.”

“Elise and Gregg bring together a masterful experience for both personal and professional growth. From mindfulness to accountability and weekly challenges, I felt I had not only a powerful toolset to work from, but tangible elements and a supportive group to implement into my daily life. With world and personal events of 2020, I felt I needed guidance and mentorship to lead me on a positive path into this “next normal” – this gave me just that. Highly recommend and already looking forward to the next session!”

A Mastermind to become the leader you can be

We started Spirit Drivers in the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

When the world flooded with uncertainty and turmoil—amid frightening health data, economic volatility, political divisiveness, and social instability—Spirit Drivers co-founders Gregg and Elise came together across time zones and took a stand.
We stand for: 
for connection over isolation
joy over frustration
and intentional creation over passive observation.
We believe it’s up to each of us to create our “new normal” every single day. By elevating our spirits we can stay present to the gifts and opportunities of life.
We believe you don’t have to do it alone. We’re better when we work together. We need each other now more than ever.

We created the Spirit Drivers Mastermind for you.

Spirit Drivers is a compassionate place to find your footing during uncertainty and turn difficult moments into opportunities to thrive.
Our Masterminds are peer exchange groups of trusted individuals meeting confidentially and frequently to support each other. Different from other social and professional groups, Spirit Drivers provides powerful social connection, collaboration, and stability to explore new paths forward.
We come together to uplift each other and create meaningful opportunities for the future.
