YOUR NEXT CHAPTER BUSINESS SUCCESS CIRCLE MASTERMIND
Your Next Chapter Business is a blend of passion and values, life experience and refined skills as you redefine who you are and what you're going to do and be in this next stage of life.
It's a wonderfully expansive and exciting time where your desire for fulfillment and contribution can be pursued. You have experience and knowledge to share, insights and lessons that shorten and sweeten the journey for others.
But in my many years as a Marketing Consultant and Business Strategist, I've seen how internal obstacles such as self-doubt and fear and external challenges like poor branding, a lack of planning, unclear messaging, inconsistent marketing and discomfort around pricing and sales can stop women from growing financially sustainable businesses.
I know that without connection and support you can disappear down the rabbit hole of comparison, especially when you work alone, chasing your tail across the internet, watching webinars, downloading opt-ins, seeking to emulate the strategies and success of others.
You don't have to do that anymore. You can move through doubt, become clear on who you're here to help and how in your own unique way. You can commit to doing you.
I'd like to help you to be the very best, wholeheartedly authentic and successful version of you too, in this next chapter of your business and life.
WE ALL HAVE DOUBT, THAT'S A PERFECTLY NORMAL PART OF THE JOURNEY
But it's not ok for doubt or fear to take the pen and write the story.
I know from personal experience, that when you lean into a circle of support everything changes. When you share your business challenges with other women who are also on their own Next Chapter Business journey, each with their unique perspectives and different ideas, brilliant things can unfold…
There’s power in being enfolded in a circle of like-minded women who are all focused on contribution, growth, and fulfilment, offering mutual guidance and support.
Mastermind Circles are strong and creative. They're a perfect fit for you if:
- You have an existing business and want momentum and growth, but you're tired of working alone on this journey and falling prey to the procrastination and perfectionism that can too often take over when we work alone
- You’re motivated, enjoy setting goals and taking action, but are sometimes overwhelmed by all the choices, strategies, approaches, tools and apps available and would love accountability and help with planning and implementation
- You know you have skill gaps to close but are not looking for an online program, you prefer genuine, ongoing, personal connection
- You're committed to growing your business and reaching and helping more people, but you know to do this you need to refine your business model and services and become more visible on the market
- You're generally optimistic and energetic, but you have your days when things feel ever so hard and doubt creeps in, especially if your Achilles heel is comparison...
These are just some of the challenges a Next Chapter Success Circle Mastermind will help you through.
Next Chapter Success Circles are a unique blend of focus, support and accountability to connect, support and inspire you as you grow you and your Business.
I've been facilitating Masterminds and hosting Retreats for several years now and have seen time and time again how valuable it is to be supported and stretched by your peers - my Mastermind clients have:
- launched websites
- hosted their first webinars
- completely changed their business models
- secured their first international clients
- overcome fear and doubt
- replaced one-off client sessions with deeper programs
- doubled their incomes
- facilitated retreats
- tamed technology that used to overwhelm them
- travelled to conferences overseas
- improved their conversions on sales conversations
- been interviewed and published
- consistently attracted aligned clients
- created their own masterminds and so much more...
When you're seen, heard and encouraged, everything becomes possible.
I didn’t have any fixed ideas or goals when I started, but 12 months down the track I am astounded at what I have achieved!
I have unearthed dreams and goals that had been shelved for years and have implemented them! I have interacted with a giving and generous group of women who all care about each other’s successes and hurdles and who are willing to share wholeheartedly.
OUR KITCHEN TABLE
There are stages in life when the answer to your meaning and purpose are not easy to find, and when you think you’ve found it, you then need the courage to grow up and become that person.
I honestly believe that being a member of a Mastermind circle has changed my life. If you’re looking for support to grow you and your business, I recommend this experience 100%
SOCIAL ENTERPRISE CONSULTANT & MENTOR
The decision to join a Your Next Chapter Mastermind Group has been the right action at the right time, 100%! Starting with the Clarity Session, the privilege of working with Angela, her laser focus, visual mapping and generous advice left me quietly excited. Two months later and the excitement is not quiet anymore!
CONTENT CREATION CATALYST
There are many business coaches and mentors in the world today and for me personally, I aligned myself with one that has the marketing expertise and experience I aspire to achieve. It is also important that Angela will be here for the long haul, this is not a short-term fix, but a long-term journey.

Celebration - bring your wins to each call to create your "Future Fuel".
Hotseat - present your core challenge to each call for our collective help
Accountability - set your key goals to complete by our next call.
- Three private one-on-one planning and mentoring sessions with me - one when you first join a Circle so we can clarify your vision, your voice and your value, one at the halfway mark to ensure you are tracking well to your plan and another at the end of the Circle to make sure your future plan is in place for momentum
- Fortnightly Mastermind Calls on ZOOM, our video conference platform of choice, where you bring your current challenge or area of focus to a Hotseat and access insights, feedback, encouragement, and accountability from your fellow members and myself. Our focus ranges from mindset and marketing to sales and systems and everything in between.

YOU'RE ALWAYS SEEN, HEARD AND SUPPORTED WITH US
You’ll have everything you need to grow your business so that it is both purposeful and prosperous and is wrapped around your core values and experience. All the resources, tools and personal support, all in one place.
A Next Chapter Success Circle Mastermind is a perfect blend of wholehearted support and business nous.
Unlike many other Mastermind programs where you can get lost in a crowd, each Success Circle is an intimate group of no more than 5 people, so everyone gets to speak and everyone has a spotlight session on each call. You'll receive the focused attention, encouragement, support and accountability that will help you to bloom and you will be carefully and thoughtfully matched with women at similar stages of business development.
I’d love to chat with you to see if a Next Chapter Success Circle Mastermind is a good fit for you and for your business.
Your Investment is just $525 (plus GST if you are in Australia) per month.
WHO IS YOUR NEXT CHAPTER SUCCESS CIRCLE MASTERMIND FOR?
Does this sound like you?
If you are a woman in her 40's and beyond who:
- Has a primary focus in your service based business of making a difference and who my sentiment that "profit is the result of right action" resonates with
- Is feeling somewhat stuck in your business development - you're keen to take significant, consistent action but are not clear on where to best focus your time and energy
- Finds yourself looking at other's businesses and successes and feeling frustrated
- Is looking for a combination of business strategising and growth with laughter, friendship and deep connection
- Is ready to show up and give as well as receive
- Loves the idea of having one central place to come too for support, guidance, mentoring, resources, tools and training
- Feels isolated and is craving support and a community of like-minded women
- Is keen on the combination of both group support and personal mentoring for marketing and business growth
AND WHO IS THIS NOT SUCH A GOOD FIT FOR?
A Mastermind is probably not right for you if:
- You'll find it difficult to commit to attending the fortnightly calls - we create a cohesive group dynamic in a Mastermind and your presence, contribution, and support is a key part of this
- You are uncomfortable with looking at your mindset and the personal development activities that complement and balance the more strategic side of a business
- A monthly financial commitment of $525 plus GST would cause stress - being stretched is ok - it helps us to take action, but being stressed is not!
- You're looking for a specific formula to follow to reach your business goals - you will have access to my frameworks and resources, guidance, and wholehearted support, but your success is ultimately up to you and the actions you choose to consistently take
Who am I and why can I help you?
I'm Angela Raspass and I'm Your Next Chapter Business Mentor. I've been in business for myself since 2003 when I realised the corporate world was no longer for me.
I launched Ideas Into Action, my small business marketing agency, from my dining room table in 2004. I hired my first casual employee in 2005 and the business gradually grew to the point of my buying an office in Chatswood and having a team of full-time staff.
All the “success 101” boxes were ticked. But in 2012, I began to realise that my heart was no longer engaged and I was burning out, juggling all the demands of my life. I’d focused so much of my energy on growing the business (because that’s the ultimate goal, right?) that I’d forgotten to check in with myself – was this what I actually wanted? The lesson was hard, but valuable – “just because you can, it doesn’t mean you should”.
And so at the end of 2012, I decided to step away, regroup and realign. The need to develop a new vision to ensure we are building a sustainable, fulfilling business for the second half of our lives is not unusual - perhaps you've felt that pull as well?
I also came to understand that I didn't have to do it all alone, that isolation stifles growth, and online courses and huge audience conferences just don't provide the connection I was looking for. I invested in a Mastermind, and what a revelation it was to have like-minded women surrounding and supporting me.
I'm professionally trained in Mastermind Facilitation
As a direct result of that experience, I decided to undergo professional Mastermind Facilitation training and refined my own business model to focus on curating richly supportive Mastermind environments for businesswomen to flourish within.
I know how to carefully curate my groups with a mix of industries and personalities and ensure the participants are at similar levels of business experience so you can positively contribute to each others growth. I'm also experienced and adept at group facilitation, asking the questions that draw you and your ideas out, keeping you focused on your goals and opening new possibilities. I'm succinct, honest, direct and clear, but my guidance is always delivered with love and integrity and designed to help you make the decisions that best serve you and your business.
In my Masterminds, you'll experience a unique blend of "at the coalface" business strategy and marketing skills and experience with equal parts confidence and self-belief support.
I'd love to welcome you into our world!

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WORK WITH ME?
BRENDA TSIAOUSIS INT.
If you're looking for an inspiring cohort of brilliant minds to encourage and support your personal growth, call you on your excuses when it’s needed and champion your ideas I thoroughly recommend becoming a part of a Next Chapter Mastermind.
FAST & FABULOUS EDITING
My experience of the Next Chapter Mastermind has been both personally and powerfully evolutionary. There are so many things I receive and so many reasons I recommend the experience for other women looking for connecting, community, focus, direction, meaning and general well-meaning butt kicking!
The Circle is an amazing experience, and it just keeps on giving. It has provided support, accountability, resource, feedback, expert help, and friendship. It meant I didn't feel like I was going it alone, I had a support team cheering me along. My knowledge around business and marketing has increased so much and when I look back over the year in review I realise how far I have come.
I first joined a Circle Mastermind Group in 2016 and continued in 2017 with the challenge of being accountable for me and by business performance with the caring support of this group.
Being a part of a Mastermind has given me trusted and safe conversations to verbalise the hard-stuff and to ask for help and guidance. I have also learned an enormous amount of tips and techniques for business development and personal growth during a time of tremendous emotional upheaval and challenge.
Any woman, regardless of a first-time entrepreneur or starting a new direction in business or revamping am old one, they all would benefit from working with you. You have the goods for working strategically but from a place of wholeness, wellbeing, and heart. You talk and walk your business, exuding the wholehearted message you want other woman and their business to achieve.
