I don’t know anything about camping or the wilderness, will I get a crash course?
We are going over a wilderness safety, best practices, absolute do’s and don’ts, and much more. There will be a pre-chat video call with everyone roughly a month prior that will provide training protocols, safety protocols, and detailed instructions on how to thrive in the wilderness while staying safe. Also, there will be survival experts and professional outdoorsmen present and available to support you and answer your questions. You will learn a ton on this trip (both personally & professionally) while becoming well-prepared to then go on camping adventures with confidence on your own or with your family in the future!
Who the heck is even going on this Montana Mastermind Epic Camping Adventure?
Only high-level male entrepreneurs who pass the “beer test” are invited. This means you would hypothetically actually want to get a beer with them (although the backcountry portion of the trip will be alcohol/drug free). As per National Forest regulations and in order to preserve the natural environment, we can only take 15 individuals into the wilderness at one time. Hence why selecting the right entrepreneurs is essential. All invitees have been personally vetted and we have strict “no douche-sissy policy”. After all, we will be camping outdoors in the wilderness together and vibes matter. All attendees are making a minimum of 6 figures annually, most 7 and 8 figure earners, some 9. It is an awesome group of successful, heart-centered men who will most likely become your new Happy Hustle brothers for life after bonding through an adventure such as this.
So you mean I won’t have my phone or laptop for the whole time?
Correct. No phones, no laptops, from Wednesday when we enter the wilderness until the Saturday afternoon when we hike out. Heck you wouldn’t even get service if you did bring em. It is a digital detox. Time for you to unplug and reconnect with your self, your soul, and nature. As well as the other awesome Happy Hustlers who will be there. However, we will have an amazing videographer and photographer capturing epic content for you and group throughout the entire duration. This content will be yours to use freely for your brand and biz afterwards 🙂
Where will we be camping and what will the temperature be?
We will be in the US National Forest in the Montana Wilderness. The closest town would be Red Lodge, Montana in case you want to look it up. This town is awesome and was voted one of the top 10 mountain towns in the country. Yes, there is wildlife in this area such as bears (both black & brown), moose, mountain lion, wolves, deer, elk, etc. It will be roughly 65-80 degrees in the day time and 35-50 degrees at night time. Perfect temperature range if you ask me.
What happens if I get injured in the wilderness?
Well you’re shit out of luck so be smart and move with purpose. Just kidding, we will have a certified medical professional on staff and present at all times and First Aid Kit ready if needed. However, we will be in the back country wilderness (aka National Forest) and that means once you’re in, no motorized vehicles can enter meaning no ambulance is showing up, we gotta get you out and to help. The nearest hospital is roughly an hour away from the trail head so again, be smart as nature is unforgiving.
What is The 3-Day Effect?
There’s nothing like the great outdoors. Us humans have been living and enjoying the great outdoors or hundreds of thousands of years. It was only within the last 100 years have we really started to live indoors. And in the last 50 years, we have been inundated with technology into our everyday reality. Most of us have lost touch with nature and have been so disconnected from our beautiful planet’s amazing natural environment and it’s benefits. Well new studies show the benefits of being outdoors for 3 days. David Sawyer, a cognitive psychologist at the University of Utah, coined the term The 3-Day Effect. Those in nature for 3 days showed lower prefrontal cortex activity, a brain region that, when overstimulated, is responsible for stress, depression, and anxiety.
Other documented benefits from exposure to 3 days in nature include:
- Lower Blood Pressure.
- Improved Memory.
- Elevated Mood.
- Better Sleep Quality.
- Increased Self-Esteem.
- Better Vitamin Absorption.
- Stronger Immune System.
So literally exposing yourself to nature has been scientifically shown to improve both mental and physical health. Research has shown that nature sounds or even outdoor silence can lower cortisol, the stress hormone that activates our fight-or-flight response. A nature setting may also correlate to a likelier receptiveness to introspection, positive internal dialogue, and an overall increased happiness. Hence why this trip exists and why it is this duration.
Alright already, I’m in! What’s the investment?
Book a call to apply and find out if there is availability and second what the investment details are. Pending you qualify and depending on when you reserve your spot, there may be an early-bird bro discount. Do note, positive ROI both personally and professionally is almost a guarantee. Heck, multi-million dollar deals were successfully struck on the last trip alone not to mention the individual creative breakthroughs that took place. It’s difficult to put a price tag on a once in a lifetime experience and life-long bonds, but we tried.
What is included in the Montana Mastermind ticket?
In order to adhere to National Forest regulations, you are purchasing a business mastermind ticket. However, included in each ticket is healthy meals and drinks for all 4 days in the backcountry, prepared by a professional chef, lodging on arrival day and on the night before departure day, a ride to and from the airport, a badass fly rod, fly fishing kit, flies, line (everything you need to fish), expert fly fishing classes, expert primitive survival classes, a journal, video & photo content of you in the backcountry wilderness to use freely, lifelong friends and much more!
What is the refund policy on ticket investments?
Given the nature of the event, the upfront costs and the limited spots available, we have a no refund policy on ticket investments. If you have an emergency conflict and are unable to attend this trip you can apply your full ticket investment to the next Montana Mastermind ticket price with 45 days notice (which gives us time to fill your spot). If cancelled within the 45 days of the event dates, we can only apply 50% of your investment to the next ticket purchase price of a future Montana Mastermind and you will sacrifice 50% of your investment. If you cancel within 10 days of the trip your investment with be forfeited with no refund. Once you are in, you are in and we can’t wait to have you on this Epic Camping Adventure!
