Thank you for requesting access to the 2022 online application, which you will find embedded below.

The purpose of this application is not to determine how advanced you are in your career. It’s for us to better understand your story, business, and life. When completing the application, celebrate your accomplishments while being honest about your challenges.

Keep in mind, you won’t be able to save your progress within the application, so you’ll need to complete it in one sitting. Some things you’ll need to have on hand in order to complete the application include your basic contact info, your artistic and business goals for the next 12 months, a short biography, and most importantly, a statement of why you want to be a part of our mastermind.
You can download or view a PDF of all of the application questions and requirements here.

If you have any questions concerning the application, please contact us at Mastermind applicants must be at least 18 years old by July 18, 2022.
