To put it bluntly, Fast Foundations changed my life.

When you step outside your comfort zone and put yourself into rooms with like-minded entrepreneurs, magic happens.

To date, I have 10x my business revenue, went from being a solopreneur to building a team of five, built deep & meaningful relationships as a result of the community and have found the clarity in how I can best serve this World.

My advice? Get in the rooms.
Jackie Serviss
Founder, Serv Recruitment Agency
I was sick of playing small in my business.

I needed the mentorship, the network, the tools, and the confidence that was needed to take my business to the next level.

I had been an entrepreneur already for a couple years and I had tried to do it on my own and I quickly realized in order to level up, think bigger, play bigger, and scale my business, I needed to get in the rooms with the right people.

I got that 10-fold. Not only did my income triple during Covid as a result of the community, it landed me on my million dollar business idea.
Bridgette Boucha
CFO for Entrepreneurs
The Fast Foundations Mastermind was one of the best decisions I made for my business.

Everything about it felt like “next level”, the training, the people, the energy.

Attending the sessions was like stepping into next level Shana. There were so many great parts of the program, but I think the best was the relationships I created with the other members.

Years later I am still connected to a lot of the people. I learned so much about myself and business during Fast Foundations. It definitely created a quantum leap in my life and business.

I knew that getting in the Fast Foundations Mastermind would be the gasoline on the fire that I needed.

The mastermind members, and the guest speakers not only held me accountable, but they stretched me in ways I never could have imagined ... which of course resulted in me scaling my business beyond 7-figures.

The network, collaborations, big thinking, support, and love in that room is something I’ve taken with me over the years.

R.T. Custer & Jim Carter III

Back in 2019, we met in this same Fast Foundations Community at one of the Mastermind Retreat events. At the time, it was run by our friend and mentor, Chris Harder. The program helped us scale our businesses past seven figures and gain the confidence we needed to grow personally and professionally.

In February 2022, we did a big exciting thing and BOUGHT Fast Foundations from Chris. We had one dream… to make this the single best community for entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and make their impact. 

Between the two of us, we’ve created three multiple seven-figure+ businesses in the fin-tech, luxury, marketing, and charitable spaces and are committed to teaching you what works… and, let’s be honest, what doesn’t.

We have both invested hundreds of thousands into expanding our networks and toward our own coaching, and we want to share this immersive program that drastically helped us achieve our goals with you!

Fast Foundations Mastermind was truly the backbone of my success in business.

It was through this mastermind I met not only some of my best friends and soul family but people who I have since built and scaled my multiple six-figure businesses with.

This mastermind is a no-brainer.

These parameters are put in place as a guideline to ensure everyone is in similar spots in their businesses.

A: We built the Mastermind Events to be not just be a one time thing. You also get three months of coaching and accountability because we wanted this to be long enough to create real growth, but also compact enough so that you can commit to it and sprint ahead in 2023! Entrepreneurs like you who are in the early stages of entrepreneurship need a fast and immersive program, but not one that takes up too much of your time either.

A: The investment to join the Fast Foundations Community is $1,000.

The typical in-person event price is approximately $3,500, however, we will offer early-bird pricing from time to time to save you even more!

Once you apply for the program, you will immediately receive a final price quote, and when you join, you’ll be given a payment link to lock in your membership.

A: Yes, but only after coordinating this with a team member. In order to pay via PayPal, send the full payment amount to [email protected]. To Pay via Venmo, send the full payment amount to @carterandcuster. IMPORTANT: After sending your payment, email [email protected] letting us know.

  • Spring Event dates TBD (typically April)
  • Summer Event dates TBD (typically August)

A: We’ll host Zoom training calls along with a welcome call to provide space for learning, collaboration, and check-ins. The Zoom dates are yet to be announced as we are lining up amazing speakers.

*Please note, we will do our absolute best to stick to this schedule. However, these are subject to change if an unforeseen incident arises. All video calls and trainings WILL BE RECORDED, and you will have access to them in the Fast Foundation Online Community while you’re an active mastermind member.

A: Access to the Online Community starts no more than 48 hours after you reserve your seat. This access never ends, because once you’re part of the Fast Foundations Mastermind, you are part of the Community for life!

All you have to do is get yourself to your chosen in-person event and find a place to stay (we will recommend hotels close to where we hold the event, but some people room together or split a nearby AirBnB.) You will also have the chance to plan two dinners on your own so that you can go bond with your new entrepreneurial friends. All other snacks, lunches, and one epic dinner experience are our treat to you per event!

A: Always check with your tax adviser, but in most cases, YES! The investment in business coaching and related travel expenses is likely a tax-deductible expense. Yay!

A: YES! If you implement everything we teach, and if you utilize your new tribe of entrepreneurial friends, then THERE IS NO WAY THIS WON’T WORK FOR YOU!

This is not an offer for 1:1 mentorship with Jim and R.T., but you’ll get 1:1 mentorship from one of our expert coaches! Plus, you’ll learn from industry leaders, experts, and other entrepreneurs throughout the program. We can’t wait to work with you this year! 

If you are looking for 1:1 coaching or business consulting, Jim and R.T. take select 1:1 coaching clients based on availability & are expert connectors. Rest assured they can find something right for you. Email us at [email protected].

YES! While Chris Harder has sold Fast Foundations to us, he will still be an active mentor and speaker at the in-person events for 2023.

Entrepreneurs grow best when they’re in a safe space for mentorship, collaboration, and learning. We bring in experts to teach you new game-changing ideas, while also creating the right exercises for you to do as a group in order to work on each other’s businesses. We’ll also pair you with a mentor who will check in with you monthly to provide business advice and accountability toward your goals. Plus, you’ll expand your network and meet other entrepreneurs to grow your business.
