Idea to Income Mastermind
Gentle Business Coaching with Results
Have you been wandering in a desert season?
You thought God had a call for your ministry and work, but you have no idea what the next right step is.
You’ve worn yourself out trying all the courses, programs, and webinars out there. You may even have a beautiful website, but you’re still not connecting with the people you want to serve.
Now you’re wondering whether this was all just a waste of time. You know you want to keep moving forward, but you don’t have a clear direction.
And you’re tired of trying to do it on your own.
What you need is clarity and direction
You want to be confident that the next step you take will bring you closer to the people you want to reach.
You need new ideas for how to do this thing God has called you to do.
You’ve poured everything you have into your calling, but feel queasy at the thought of asking anyone to pay you.
Now you have to figure it out — or you won’t be able to keep going.
“Idea to Income Mastermind”
It’s the continual growth group where you can…
>> Discover ways to connect with your core group of people and help bring about the transformation you know God has for them
>> Move forward with clarity and confidence, even when the next step feels hard
>> Earn an income doing the things you love — and that come naturally to you as an HSP
You don’t have to do this alone.
Before joining the Mastermind, I felt like this was a very lonely process.
I had just turned in copy for my book, but I had no idea what the next step was. I’d tried courses in the past, but they’re less personal and it’s easy to fade into the crowd.
But once I joined the Mastermind group, everyone’s willingness to welcome me and encourage me made me feel like I had a community of people to share this with.
It gave me that sense of camaraderie, and I had a chance to hear people speaking my language — especially the HSP part of it.
It’s like the coaches held a mirror up and gave me a different picture of who I was. And that’s where the confidence started growing.
Are you a sensitive soul looking to gain traction in your business and ministry?
You can do it alongside an encouraging community of your fellow HSPs.
The ‘Idea to Income Mastermind’ is a place where people “get” you, and you get coached according to your wiring.
Inside, you’ll enjoy the camaraderie of a supportive group of Christian women like you who are writers, coaches, or speakers.
They hold up a mirror and give you a clearer picture of the gifts you already have but haven’t known how to use.
Imagine untangling yourself from all the things you feel like you “should” do. And taking your next steps based on your unique strengths — at your own pressure-free pace
And you’ll have your buddies cheering you on as you try things you never would have imagined yourself doing, and loving it!
I knew God was leading me somewhere, but I wasn’t sure how to put boots to the ground with that.
I was running here and there trying different things, dabbling, with no clear direction.
The deep conversations in the Mastermind have helped me untangle my ideas. The accountability, collaborative support, and gentle coaching have helped me grow.
I feel heard. I feel seen. I feel affirmed.
And I now have a core group of people in my paid program, and I’m loving them!
I keep having the hard thing out in front of me, and thanks to the Mastermind, I keep stepping toward it, and things are happening!
Meet Your Coaches
I’m the co-author of 5 traditionally published books, co-host of Grit ‘n’ Grace—THE PODCAST, and founder of Sensitive & Strong U. I’m an international speaker for women’s retreats and educational conferences.
I’ve been coaching Christian women in writing and business since 2005. And I love nothing more than helping HSP Christian women use their time and energy in a targeted way that energizes, instead of depleting them. When the student is ready, I’m always here to teach — without overwhelming you with too much information.
Mary Lou Caskey
I now know the challenges of building a business and how to do it in ways that are actually enjoyable. I received my training from the Professional Christian Coaching Institute and have been coaching for 12 years.
I enjoy coaching Christian women who are building a business for the first time, helping them discover and apply their personalized business strategies. It brings me joy to lead focused and thought-provoking small group discussions to help my clients untangle their ideas, preventing them from wasting their time, money, or energy.
Before, I spent way too much money on things that I thought would be ‘the ticket.’
I was beating myself up and wondering ‘Why doesn’t this work for me?’ Then, I realized I wasn’t getting the responses I wanted before because I was trying to be someone I wasn’t called be.
On the other hand, the Idea to Income Mastermind is a place I feel safe and understood as an HSP and in the areas that overwhelm me. Everyone else gets it.
Cheri and Mary Lou know me, and where I want to go with my ministry, and they coach me accordingly.
This is a continual growth group, and I also grow by watching the growth of the other ladies. The Mastermind has helped me create a clear path, and I’m content knowing I’m where I’m supposed to be.

I had already invested quite a bit of money in getting my business started.
I had a nice website. I was on social media. I did the things I thought I needed to do to get myself and my business out there, but I didn’t have paying clients.
I felt alone and discouraged, and I was wondering if I just didn’t have what it takes to run a business.
When I heard about the Mastermind, I realized that this was a community where I could find the help I needed and meet other like-minded women who were working on similar endeavors.
It was a stretch to figure out a way to spend more money on my business, but I felt strongly that this mastermind would be a good match for me.
And I was right about that.
In the Idea to Income Mastermind, I found friends who understood and encouraged me. I found coaches that that could see in me what I couldn’t see in myself.
Cheri and Mary Lou knew how to help me tap into my unique qualities so that I could become confident in how God wired me. I have been able to let go of my insecurities about running my own business, and I’ve found the courage to try new things.
Joining the Mastermind is some of the best money I’ve ever spent. I’m earning an income now, and my time at work is energizing and fulfilling.
And most of all, I see that being freed up to do what God has created me to do makes a difference for His kingdom.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is this worth the financial investment?
You could continue pouring your time, money, and energy into training or other coaching programs that don’t bring you closer to building a connection with your people. And even worse, they’re a mismatch for your wiring as an HSP. So you just end up feeling drained.
And we’ve intentionally designed the Mastermind to energize you, so you’ll have more margin to move forward.
I’ve already tried everything, will this work for me?
We’ve been there, too. We understand how hard you’ve worked trying to check all the boxes on the things you “should” do. That’s where the ‘Idea to Income Mastermind’ is different. As HSP business coaches, we’ve created a process that honors your unique wiring.
This mastermind is unlike anything you’ve tried before. Through deep conversations, we use the synergy of the group to help you find clear next steps that are right for you — where you are right now.
There’s no pressure or list of shoulds, just the next right step that moves you forward in your business and ministry.
What if I’ve never heard of HSP (Highly Sensitive Person)?
That’s not a problem. Simply contact [email protected] and we will be happy to share more information with you.
What is expected of Mastermind members?
While this is a mastermind of growth-minded Christian women in business, you don’t need to worry about bringing any “expertise” or “business knowledge” to the table.
The magic moments in this HSP mastermind happen when we all show up as ourselves — no more, no less — and are fully present for each other.
How much time do I need to devote to the Mastermind?
Our set meetings last for one hour and start at 8:00 AM Pacific/ 11 AM EST two Thursday mornings per month.
Then, between meetings, each member invests as much or as little time as she wants, asking questions and connecting with the other members, based on her personal preferences and needs.
Where will you be a year from now?
You could keep listening to all the voices telling you what you “should” do: obsess over your social media graphics. Figure out TikTok, now. Post to Facebook every single day without a break. Pour your money into an expensive website.
You could keep on spreading yourself too thin.
Or you can join an intentional growth group where you feel seen, heard, and affirmed.
And get coached in a way that honors your unique personality — so you can make real connections with the people you have a heart to serve.
