However, you do have the option to have the billing done through Channel Partner Alliance, however there will be a minimum of 30-days notice for cancellation.
Join a peer-group: CPA is all about building best business practices for a sustainable recurring revenue MSP business model. It’s best to accomplish this through a Mastermind Peer-Group. Mastermind peer-groups are relatively new to most people, even though Napoleon Hill created the concept around 80 years ago (Read his book “Think and Grow Rich”). A Mastermind group is designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others. There are 2 ways to participate in a peer-group. You can simply pay to join the peer-group of your choice where all billing is done through Channel Partner Alliance. Membership fees are pre-paid annually and there is no cancellation once the group starts. Renewals are annual. OR, you have an option to sign up for the MDF program to subsidize your membership fees AND get access to the “WHS” e-procurement platform at no cost. Since all MDF on your purchases will come from distributors, the WHS platform is how we manage all this in real-time.
What is a Mastermind Peer Group?
Typical Mastermind groups offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and support in a small group setting. It helps you and your mastermind group members to sharpen business and personal skills to achieve greater success. Participants challenge each other to set powerful goals, and more importantly, to accomplish them.
Your mastermind group is like having an objective board of directors, a success team, and a peer advisory group, all rolled into one.
A Mastermind group is NOT for you if you are:
- not willing to fully lean in and participate
- not willing to be vulnerable and honest
- a negative or deeply sarcastic person
- not able to commit to attending meetings
A Mastermind group is for you if you are:
- looking to surround yourself with highly motivated people
- able to accept help and learn from the mistakes of others
- looking to reinforce positive steps with accountability
- willing to invest in yourself
It’s best to experience it live to truly understand, but here is how our “Mastermind” peer-group program work:
The HOT Seat
One of the most powerful tools in a MasterMind group is the “Hot Seat”. The Hot Seat is when a member is given the focus from the collective experience of the group to solve a specific and immediate issue that will be of utmost benefit to them. In this structured environment, the Hot Seat participant will receive definite steps, expertise, resources and even encouragement to move forward. (An interesting side effect of the Hot Seat is that everyone usually is able to get something useful from the discussion that they can apply.)
Accountability is everything! Without it, goals will never be reached. Accountability in front of your peers is a very powerful motivator. It gets the job done and gives huge reward. This accountability will help you keep moving towards your goals with more power than you thought you had as your peers and coaches support and cheer you on. This very special peer-to-peer accountability will help every team member to step up and get the job done right!
Feedback and the power of an honest NO
Getting feedback from friends and family will most likely not give you the honest or brutal truth that you need in business. How much time and money could you save by avoiding mistakes? In a Mastermind group, you will get honest, yet respectful feedback from your peers who truly understand the situation. While great ideas will be encouraged, bad ideas will be exposed. In some cases, a simple course correction might make the difference between success and failure, while for others, giving up on a bad idea might be the best thing that happens to them!
Commitment to Help
“There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.”
There is something incredibly rewarding when you are able to help someone solve an issue or give them feedback that truly changes their lives. Try it to feel it for yourself! Open yourself to a fellowship of incredible individuals whose combined experience will allow each member to leap past their competitors. We dare say that many Mastermind members of the group actually do become close friends. And, with the expanded community of the many other groups, there is a growing group-force that continues to empower every member.
The first day of your experience starts with a Mastermind introduction session and get to meet the other members of the group. This is the beginning of where relationships will start to develop and the group can build a consensus on those topics where external, expert support and team-working can achieve transformational change! As one outcome from the first meeting, the group will provisionally agree the topics and coaches who they would like to lead future sessions. From the range of coaches available, the group may wish to focus on specific topics or to spread the subject matter for broader impact.
Moving forward, the number of scheduled Coach-supported Mastermind peer-group sessions will vary depending on your membership level.
In addition to the shared component of the program, all participants will have access to a defined number of virtual, one-to-one Coaching sessions which can be selected to support group themes or pursue more specific areas of interest.

For Vendors and Distributors:
You can become a “Supply-Side Partner” to Channel Partner Alliance to help your channel partners to improve their businesses and grow your sales. All you have to do is agree to support your partners who are also CPA members with your MDF funds to help them pay for their fees. That’s it! If you wish to offer CPA members a special group discount pricing, then they will appreciate that too, but it is not a requirement (FYI, 100% of any discounts are always passed on to CPA members). The goal is simply to help your partners leverage some MDF to subsidize their membership fees proportionately, based on their sales. Sign up then sit back as you monitor the sales growth of your CPA member partners, year over year! Sponsor a mastermind group to measure the ROI. Compare the group’s performance as they go through the program with other partners to easily measure the net impact on your sales. Contact us to learn more!
