Program Structure

Call 1:

Meet & Greet

The first week is dedicated to getting to know your assigned group. You will discuss your background and goals. It’s the first step towards becoming a tight knit work group who support and collaborate on ideas to empower each others businesses and careers. are.

Calls 2-7


We will kick off each call with a short discussion on what everyone has achieved over the past week and which goals have been met. Gotta love that accountability!

Then it’s time to go deep and take turns jumping in to the hot seat. When it is your turn you will have the opportunity to discuss what you are working on and any issues you may be facing that week. Your mentor and group will offer feedback and advice to help you move past any struggles and steer you towards your goals.

Based on the results of the discussion, we will plan your next steps and goals for the following week. Even when it isn’t your turn in the hotseat you will always take something away from each call, as we learn and grow with each other.

Call 8:

Follow up

In the final call we look at what you have achieved over the last 8 weeks and help you to create a plan for the future. Setting out how you will continue to grow and strive towards your goals. Getting feedback and suggestions on your plan from your mentor and fellow Mastermind members.

Don’t worry we don’t just leave you there. You will have continued access to the Slack channel for at least 1 year where you can chat with your fellow students until your heart's content. Providing you with some awesome motion design friends you know you can count on.

What our students think

I've probably achieved more in the last few weeks that I did in 3 months last year – setting weekly and long-term goals has been a great benefit to me. Having others to push me and give me the confidence to do the things I have been putting off.

Donna McAvoy


When I joined the Mastermind we'd been planning to launch our new animation studio for almost a year, but client work kept getting in the way and our own business priorities fell to the side.

Joining at the start of the year was a great push to get our new website up and running. The weekly meetups kept me on track and it was great to have a team giving support and advice throughout the process.

Steff Lee

Kino Bino

I feel like I'm unlocking the hidden business side of myself and everything in the business process is getting easier like client management, networking, budgeting, etc.

Alex Johnson

Armadillo Motion

The Mograph Mastermind is a great place to voice my worries and have support with my business issues. When things get tough it can be overwhelming to deal with everything alone. Having the group is mentally helpful alongside the actual and concrete productive help.

Yaya Gadon

Yaya Studio

I couldn't be happier with how this mastermind has helped me grow! I've stepped outside of my comfort zone and explored avenues I didn't think I would.

Allison Butler


I had been procrastinating on starting a personal project, so the accountability and especially the hot seats in the mastermind really clarified next steps for me. I feel completely unstuck now. I also got a lot of valuable support when I needed to shift my focus to a membership site I was building. I am super happy I joined and so proud of all the great moves everyone in the group made!!! Hayley facilitated an awesome community of motion designers ready to learn, help each other, and grow together.
