Happy Birthday Welcome To The Single Malt Mastermind

Welcome to the Single Malt Mastermind ...

... it's a business-owners mastermind unlike any other. Private coaching for a price so low you'll wonder what the catch is.

(There isn't one.)

It’s a mastermind for people like you who KNOW what you need to do, and need to do more of it.

It’s a place where results are measured weekly and progress is made daily.

It’s a program that forces you to focus on the bottom line and ignore the assorted bells-and-whistles that pull your attention sideways when you should be going forward.

Because you don’t need different or new, you just need more focus.

If you’ve already made your first dollar, this is the place for you.

It’s a balls-to-the-wall, no-frills, distraction-free environment where DOING is prioritized above KNOWING and the accumulation of knowledge plays no part.

That means you’ll get more of the right stuff done. Every week.

More sales. More clients. More focus.

In just a few short weeks from now, when you use the proprietary - and alarmingly simple - Single Malt Methodology - you’ll exceed even your own expectations.

You see, there’s a huge problem with a lot of masterminds.


You end up spending more time in your mastermind than you do selling to prospects and servicing your current clients.

You confuse contributing to your mastermind with contributing to the growth of your business.

I mean, don’t get me wrong.

I think masterminds are useful.

I’m in several.

I’ve also run several.

I’ve spent - and collected - thousands and thousands of dollars on - and from - masterminds.

But they’re critically flawed in two areas:

1. No silence to get the work done, and

2. An over-reliance on self-control in a sea full of shiny distractions.

For every member who's killing it or crushing it or blowing up, there are a dozen who are languishing, struggling and stuck in a rut.

There are people - like you perhaps - who have invested $10,000 or $20,000 or even $100,000 in joining a business mastermind group and are still in the same place a year later, with nothing to show for their investment.

And THAT is why I created the Single Malt Mastermind … a mastermind unlike any other, exclusively for serious, grown up business owners like you who want to sell more and (yes) ... crush it.

The Single Malt Mastermind complements whatever personal and business development you're doing today. If you're not doing anything, this is a great place to start. It’s a low-touch, (very) low cost single-focus program that couldn’t be more simple to use.

I’m Matthew Kimberley.

For years I was in charge of Book Yourself Solid Worldwide. I’m the author of How To Get A Grip, creator of the School for Selling and founder of Professional Persuasion.

I speak and train business owners all over the world.

I’ve led workshops and seminars and spoken on the stage in Sydney, San Diego and everywhere in between (the long way round, not across the Pacific)

Here's a video for - you know
- credibility and likeability reasons

I’ve built real companies and sold them. I’ve advised countless business owners and sales people and freelancers to do one thing: sell more.

But enough about me. Let's talk about the Single Malt Mastermind.

Because I want you to join today.

First off, it's for business owners, the self-employed and anybody whose remuneration is based on results.

That means it doesn't matter what niche you're in or which industry you serve.

This WILL work for you.

What you DON’T get in the Single Malt Mastermind

You don’t get community, distraction or demands on your time.

That's right:

  • NO Facebook Groups
  • NO Monthly or Weekly Calls
  • NO Local Meetups
  • NO Annual Conferences

You don't get inundated with checklists and tasks and "should dos" that mean you end up spending more time working on your mastermind than you do working on your business.

In fact, you get inundated with nothing.

It’s a super-lightweight, super-economical mastermind that fits INTO your regular work, that takes NO time out of your week, and that truly keeps you focused on your business and sales goals.

What's in a name?

Single Malt Mastermind

The Single Malt name encompasses some of my most important life philosophies.

If you share them, you're probably in the right place.

SINGLE: this represents responsibility. The buck stops with you. You are SINGULARLY responsible for your results. You need other people, for sure, but - in the words of Winston Churchill - "change comes from within".*

What's more, you'll have a SINGLE weekly activity when you join the mastermind, and it won’t take you more than ten minutes to complete.

Which means you’ll have a SINGLE focus the rest of the week: growing your business by selling the right thing to the right people.

MALT is an acronym for More Action Less Talk.

That's self-explanatory.

We don't talk to each other (even though there are many of us, it's a SECRET society). There is nowhere to hang out. You don't even know who the other members are.

There *may* be a secret handshake. Working on that part.

There are no live events. There is no Facebook group. There are no videos to watch. There are no worksheets to fill out.


This is a space for grown-ups.

You've got to put on your big-girl pants and make a (single) commitment when you join today.

That commitment?

To hit “reply” to an email and answer three small questions once a week.

I encourage bad behavior, and if you're so inclined you may pour yourself a large glass of something strong and wet before you hit the reply button.

A delicious and refreshing beverage, with or without ice. There's no judgement here.*

Too long? Didn't read? Read this:

Weekly email check-ins are one of the cornerstones of my private coaching practice. Now you can get the check-ins, and the accountability, as a stand-alone product, without the added expense and commitment of a full coaching partnership.

The specifics - how it works

When you join today, you’ll get an email from me every Friday for the rest of your life.

Well, let's start with the next 12 months at least.

That's one email from me, every Friday, for the next 12 months.

The emails will always have [SMM] in the subject line, so you’ll know that it’s me and you’ll be able to prioritize it.

The email will ask three questions:
  • 1What did you do this week?
  • 2What are you going to do next week?
  • 3Anything else on your mind you want to share?

You shouldn’t spend more than ten minutes on it.

This works like gangbusters for a number of reasons:
  • You’ve paid, so you’ve got skin in the game.
  • You know I’ll be looking out for your email, so you’ve got accountability.
  • What you measure is what you get (what you did). That means you will study the past to improve the future.
  • You’re making a series of micro-commitments that become tougher to break once they’re public (what you’re going to do).
  • You get to do a brain-dump to clear the fog at the end of the week.
  • You will have a permanent and immediately-accessible "captain's log" of all the important metrics and decisions taken in your business.

You see, EVERY "normal" business has reporting lines.

Those reporting lines mean that at the end of every week, month and quarter, managers report up the chain of command on their performance and predictions for the coming period.

There isn't a normal business in the world that doesn't do this. It's NECESSARY for accountability and quality-control.

From today you'll have the same structure. And your business will grow.

You'll report to me on your measurable achievements. How much, how many, etc ...

Because of that, I take confidentiality deadly seriously.

Your answers will NEVER be shared with anybody and they’ll be kept under digital lock and key inside my secured email account.

That’s our contract.

And that's the program.

No longer explanations because they’re not necessary.

You get an email. You reply.

In between emails, you spend your time well, because you know you’ve got to report back to me at the end of the week.

You become more productive and you sell more.

It’s useful. It’s cathartic. It’s “actionable”.

And if it’s for you, you probably already know by now.

Taki Moore

I can't get enough of Matthew's emails. They're irreverent. Direct. And make me want to be a better man.

Actually, that part isn't true.

They just make me want to get off my ass
and make things happen.

- Taki Moore, Million Dollar Coach

So how much does it cost?

The Single Malt Mastermind is worth six million dollars a year.


But I’m not going to charge you that much. That would be ridiculous.

I figure I’d pay somebody $50 a week - or more - to hold me accountable with a scheduled email. Getting stuff done each week is worth a lot more than that to me, and probably to you, as well.

So $50 x 52 weeks = $2,600 a year.

But you can have it for only $97 a month.

Because you’ll be more likely to buy it right now.

That’s $97 (not a typo: ninety seven dollars) per month to belong to this exclusive club.

Why so cheap for private coaching? Especially with a program that is definitely NOT scalable for me to deliver?

Well I'm glad you asked: it often serves as an entry-point for people like you who need MORE in-depth coaching with me but want to "try before you buy". So in that respect it allows you to "dip your toe in the water."

But for others, it's simply all they need. Information is freely available everywhere. But accountability is always worth paying for.

So I want to make it as democratic - and realistic - as possible. It's not a scalable program for me.

I sit down every Monday and Tuesday and dedicate many hours to personalised replies. But I love it. And it's well worth it.

You need to know this as well: you can cancel anytime.

There are no refunds. The value proposition is straightforward. You know what you're getting:

52 emails a year that you reply to, plus my responses to your replies.

So get started today.

I’ll send you one email right now to tell you what to expect, and your next email this coming Friday.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Matthew acknowledge my emails?


So I can have an in-depth conversation with him and get live email coaching?

Only if you're a current coaching client. Packages for that start at $9,000 and are dependent on an in-depth application. Email if you'd like to know more about becoming a private client.

Realistically, this Single Malt Mastermind is a good option for you if you either already have a coach, or prefer to not work with a coach at the moment. That means this program is designed as an extra resource to support you in your current efforts. You'll get a reply, but the economies of scale mean that support - at $97 a month - will not be the same as having a full-time coaching agreement with me.

What happens when I join today?

You'll get two emails from Matthew right away and on this Friday - and next Friday - and every Friday for the rest of the year, as long as you're an active member, you'll hear from him again. That means NO one-click upsells, no add-on options and no exciting opportunities to join his other programs forced upon you now or at any stage in the future.

What if I want to cancel?

You can cancel at any time by sending an email to and your subscription will be cancelled immediately.

Does this work?

It works if you set aside ten minutes every week to reply to an email.

Do you have any testimonials?

Sure - see below

Other questions?

Email and my beautiful assistant, Big Frank, will get back to you sharpish.


When my husband walks through the door after work, they last thing he wants to hear me shout from my home office is, "Hey, look, my sales page is up!" or "Honey, what do you think I should price this program at?"

Frankly, he tires of acting as a sounding board for a business that he barely understands the structure of. Can't blame him either.

Matthew, on the other hand, completely understands my business type and it's helpful as fuck to get some quick, to the point feedback that doesn't come with a sigh and "What's for dinner?"

Michelle Pfennighaus

Paul Stennett

The Single Malt Mastermind is definitively worth way more than Matthew is charging for it.

I've been in membership groups and private masterminds and I have never felt more alone.

The second I got one of Matthew's emails and I replied, I went into my masterminds and cancelled them all.

This isn't even a course, but I've learned so much in the past few weeks because I am constantly taking action. With SMM I am motivated to keep moving forward, because no matter what, on Friday, Matthew is going to reach out to me and I need to have something to say!

Paul Stennett

Kelly Exeter

I've long subscribed to the theory that small things done regularly are far more impactful to a business than big things done never - but have still struggled to get myself to do those small things.

The accountability element of SMM has seen me churn through a glut of tasks that would ordinarily have sat on the to-do list for months.

All because I can't bear the thought of telling Matthew 'I didn't do that thing'. Signing up for Single Malt Mastermind was the very definition of 'no-brainer' for me.

Kelly Exeter

Tony Radford

I have found Matthew Kimberley's Single Malt Mastermind (SMM) to be extremely helpful.

I am a remote worker and having an email reminder to think about the following week has proven to be invaluable.

The genius of SMM is in its simplicity: answer the three questions and it's job done.

Thanks Matthew.

Tony Radford

Natalia Levey

Friday is now my absolute favorite day of the week.

Getting that witty email from Matthew means I have to be accountable - and not for the sole purpose of impressing him with my list of accomplishments, or getting "that-a-girl" back.

The Single Malt Mastermind has helped me to stay more focused on my business, and I'm a lot more diligent about weekly planning and executing, which caused me quite a bit of anxiety before.

Natalia Levey

Shannon Fable

As a fitness professional, I know the benefits of having the right accountability partner to achieve fitness and weight loss goals.

The Single Malt Mastermind, with Matthew Kimberley, is the best accountability partner for your business.

Knowing that someone will ask you the tough questions at the end of the week, you'll need to answer, and - more importantly - that there will be a response, makes you wake up, look at your schedule, and make adjustments to get things done!

I consider myself a very productive person, but since joining the SMM I've consistently increased sales and my forward progress on big projects that are sure to change my business forever!

Shannon Fable

Kari Saddler

When I read about the Single Malt Mastermind I thought, "FINALLY, a mastermind where I can actually focus and get to work!"

This is a totally different concept and I love it. Matthew definitely delivers each week with an email that will both motivate and entertain.

Thinking through the three questions forces me to look at my week under a microscope and Matt's responses to my emails (which I was NOT expecting!) always seem to hone in on the one thing I need to hyper-focus on to move forward.

Kari Saddler

Jennifer Dene

From the moment I paid for my membership in Single Malt Mastermind I became an entrepreneur with drive.

Knowing that Matt expects an email update from me each Friday keeps me laser focused on completing the things that really matter.

It's almost absurd that one email a week could have so much impact, but it really works ... I'll drink to that!

Jennifer Dene

Debi Lee

Matthew's SMM is pure genius. He combines the power of accountability with a narrowed focus on 2 critical tasks: assessing your results and planning your next most-important steps. Every. Single. Week.

I'm extremely self-motivated and still cannot overstate the effectiveness of accountability. Being accountable to someone you respect is a powerful catalyst for getting things done.

I've accomplished so much more than I otherwise would have because I don't want the (self-inflicted) embarrassment of telling Matthew I didn't do what I said I would do!

His weekly emails are engaging and enlightening. I'm a recovering perfectionist and the SMM has helped me get comfortable with imperfect action.

SMM is super valuable and an absolute STEAL! Thanks so much, Matthew!

Debi Lee


I didn't expect much when I became a member of the Single Malt Mastermind - turns out these emails are funny, enlightening, spot on - and, dare I say, just the right amount of intimidating. They're one of the highlights of my week. These emails make me want to be a better person. Or, become better at the business part of things at least.

It's obvious that Matthew cares deeply, and that he knows what he's talking about. Each of them includes a nugget of wisdom you can use right away. To me these emails are more valuable than many of the
courses out there.

Sophia Lovett

Andreas Wettstein

I have been working with Matthew for over 2 years now, and I have bought - without regret - every product he has put online.

But when Matthew invited me to his Single Malt Mastermind, I first thought this was some kind of joke. Gradually, however, the idea of More Action Less Talk started to resonate with me, and for the price, it seemed to be worth a try.

Now every Sunday I take a few moments to answer to the 3 questions Matthew asks on Friday.

Has it made a difference to my business?


What is different now? I am actually doing the things I have committed to, and my sales have taken off.

A word of warning. The Single Malt Mastermind is only for people who are willing to take action.

Andreas Wettstein

Thad Cox

For me investing in the Single Malt Mastermind was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

It's given me accountability, motivation and perspective. Being able to plan and track your progress is so simple but very effective and extremely rewarding.

Throw in direct access to one of the best business coaches in the industry and it becomes priceless.

I wish I'd discovered it sooner as I've already seen a substantial improvement in my productivity which has resulted in more sales, more time with my family and real pride in my work.

I'm now using my time so much more efficiently AND I not only have a strategy, but the plan and guidance to execute it thanks to Matthew's insight and knowledge."

Thad Cox

John Livesay

Matthew's Single Malt Mastermind combines the ability to focus on what matters to drive sales along with his amazing wit and insights on just what you need to do next.

Need someone to help you make your emails more compelling?

Need some insights on what to charge for your product/services?

Need someone to keep you motivated?

If so, I can tell you Matthew has done all of that and more for me. Everyone needs someone in their corner and you can't find a better person who cares about you or a better sales strategist to have in your corner.

John Livesay

James Rose

Matt is one of the most 'real' marketers ever.

I like to think I've got an oversensitive BS detector, and Matt flies right by that.

The Single Malt Mastermind keeps me accountable, and Matt's responses are always positive and fun

James Rose

Gino Aragon

Being a part of the Single Malt Mastermind has been a great investment for me!!

The opportunity to meticulously focus for approximately 10 - 15 minutes every week on tasking and other thoughts for my business is worthy of my time & financial synergy!!

I am extremely pleased to be a part of the SMM family and grateful for Matthew Kimberley being a part of my life!!

Thank you so much!!

Gino Aragon

Koreen Clements

The Single Malt Mastermind was possibly my best purchase of 2016.

The weekly accountability is exactly what I need to get things done and be more strategic with my time.

Like an airplane can spend much of its journey off course, yet still get to its destination; despite my weekly detours, Matt's emails are the one thing that keep me pointed in the right direction. If you're hesitating because you think you can do it alone, then ask yourself if you're on track to reach your goals or have you veered off course.

Koreen Clements, UK

Jacqueline Steenhuis

I am incredibly grateful for the Single MALT Mastermind.

It gives me an opportunity to sit down and think about what I have accomplished and where to go next.

I look forward to my prompt every Friday because Matthew Kimberley is both insightful and entertaining in his email.

Getting a note back is incredible, but the chance to sit down and be prepared for the following week is the real value.

It creates a plan, keeps me accountable and provides me with a record of my productivity and growth.

Jacqueline Steenhuis

Susie Jones

I've always dreamed of being my own boss. And I absolutely love working for myself. BUT I hadn't counted on how difficult it would be not having a team of colleagues to discuss ideas and strategy with, nor did I realise I would actually miss certain aspects of the structure which exists in a larger workplace.

Since signing up for Single Malt Mastermind, I've gained so much clarity. I am finally developing the pattern of regularly reviewing my progress, and making a plan for the following week.

It's so simple, but it's so effective. Matthew's comments are always on point. But what's equally valuable is that I am training myself to think in this way, and I think that's priceless. Thank you Matthew!

Susie Jones

The Single Malt Mastermind probably shouldn't work. The same 3 questions every week. For 52 weeks. But contrary to my expectations it's remarkably effective. Which probably makes Matthew some kind of genius.

The questions are always accompanied by some of Matthew's irreverent humour mixed with insight and wisdom which makes the emails a must read. And the questions themselves force you to confront your own existential realities; basically what the f*ck are you doing with your life? Of course you can lie to him but then what's the point (and who do you think you're really kidding?)

And to date he's responded to every email I've ever sent him! Which for the price I paid, must be the bargain of the millennium.

Chris Fry, UK

Robert Middletone

I have been through several courses and they've all been great, but what I need more than anything is accountability to take action, without which the best ideas in the world aren't going to help much.

The Single Malt Mastermind provides me with weekly accountability. Since starting I've greatly increased the amount of pitches I've been sending out to prospective clients.

I appreciate the weekly email, especially the fact that Matthew responds in person. It's a bargain!

Robert Middleton

Rick Siderfin

Three things you need to know if you are considering signing up to the Single Malt Mastermind:

  1. The emails you get each week from Matt are not the same dry-as-dust repeated message asking you for a reply. They are different every time, and always contain some fresh thought-provoking content and usable advice. This motivates you to respond.

  2. When you do respond, Matt really does reply. Himself. Every time. With several sentences of nugget-y feedback on your current situation and offering his perspective, some non-judgemental advice, and always the encouragement to keep going and getting results

  3. It really works. Within months of signing up, I had left my day job and am now pursuing a career as a freelance writer and marketing consultant. Without SMM I reckon I would still be stuck in my cubicle.

Rick Siderfin

Julia Raymond

I recognized the value of Single Malt Mastermind immediately. And it brought tears to my eyes. I had started a creative business but continually sacrificed opportunities to promote my work and develop sales. When the SMM invite came along, I knew it would help me break through this avoidance & frustration.

Matthew Kimberley brings a quality of attention that developed a case for MY success. Get yourself into the SMM program and you will see quick results. Why? Because you will enter into a shared, invigorated, courageous dialogue along the way to delivering better & better results. You consistently show up. MK continually shows up. It works.
