Transformers Institute facilitates Mastermind Groups for Automotive Service and Repair shops whose goal is to be the best. These groups are for business owners who have graduated from a traditional 20 group or organized training program and are asking “what’s next?”


Our selection of Mastermind Groups combines shop owners and key leaders from around the country, who share a common goal: to maximize their business while transforming the industry for the better. Together we create a “brain bank” where we can all exchange ideas and solve issues together. Members are strategically from non-competing markets so that we can help each other grow and succeed exponentially without conflicts of interest.

Transformers Institute, the first of its kind, is the combined best of the 20 Group & Mastermind Group worlds! We are a group of some of the best businesses. We are each successful shop owners in our own right and are looking to better and grow our businesses by pulling our collective brain power together, experiences, and learning new insights to launch us each to higher heights. 

Think of it like a floating brain. As we sit at our roundtable, there is a brain floating above us. We all feed into it our collective wisdom, thoughts, ideas, and strategies.

This brain represents the best in all of us. And it's there, available for any of us to tap into at any time; taking what best applies to our specific goals and business model; allowing us to find a success that we've never thought possible.

What is a Mastermind Group?

Learn Game Changing Strategies from World-Class Shop Owners

Think of a bank of batteries in series. That one bank can produce exponentially more energy than a single battery on its own. Similarly, to understand the amazing dynamic of a mastermind meeting, visualize a giant floating brain in the room, representing all the collective wisdom, knowledge, triumphs, tragedies, and experiences of the entire group.  This brain represents all that the members have to offer and it’s available for any member to tap into at any time, take what best applies to their specific goals and business model, and it allows them to find a success that they’d never thought possible. Mastermind groups have historically been made up of members from multiple industries who have all achieved a substantial level of success and, therefore, have many experiences to contribute to the group.

The Mastermind concept was brought into the mainstream in the 1930s by Napoleon Hill, a journalist and author of multiple books, including Think and Grow Rich and The Laws of Success. While interviewing the most successful people at the time such as Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill asked each one what they did differently than their competition and what they attributed their success to. They all credited their Mastermind meetings as the main key to their success. The Mastermind concept has been adopted by successful business owners throughout history and many still agree that it’s one of the best investments you can make in yourself and your business.

What makes this Mastermind Different?

Our Mastermind meetings are based on collaboration of the members, as opposed to a specific curriculum. Multiple business models are supported and encouraged. We believe that there can be value in each model and are more so interested in supporting each other to rise to higher heights.

Transformers’ mastermind groups are single industry, bringing an additional value to the original concept. Members come from around the country and non-competing markets. This creates a diverse, strong environment where transparency can be possible without conflicts of interest.

Each group meets four times a year for a 2-day event. All members get a specified session time to present their current challenge to the group and receive feedback along with strategies and ideas. There are short breaks in between each session allowing members a mental recess so they can be completely focused and engaged for each member’s session.

What’s expected of you with Membership?

  • Leave your ego at the door
  • Be willing to be honest and transparent, and accept/receive all feedback graciously
  • Not only glean nuggets, but also be willing to contribute
  • Fully attentive during member sessions

"Joining the Transformers Mastermind Group has been my best business investment in the past decade."

Charlie Marcotte
American Pride Automotive

"It’s because of this Transformers Group I was able to find the right road to drive to get to my second location. It was an amazing experience for me because I made A LOT of mistakes on my first location and I wanted to minimize those kinds of mistakes on the second location. Transformers consulting opened my eyes to their combined experience’s and expertise to not make certain moves with the Acquisition. I’m ever grateful for their guidance as a group and as individuals. Thank you for having this available for those of us that admittedly know they do not know what they are doing but want to do it correctly."

Chris Heintzman

"I wanted to grow my business, Dynamic Automotive, but I had found it difficult to replicate the success we had at our first store. Even after our fourth location I still felt we were spending too much effort to make the new location successful. Joining the Transforms Mastermind group has changed EVERYTHING! We have been able to identify issues with under-performing locations and have developed a process to expand while keeping us consistent across all locations. Presenting our challenges to Greg and our group has given us real world solutions to real world problems— all have produced incredible results. If you want to grow smartly, join the Transformers!"

Dwayne Myers
Dynamic Auto

"I joined the Transformers Masterminds Gold group about a year ago. Having been in other 20 groups I really enjoy the format of this one, during each visit you bring an issue specific to your operation and you get about an hours worth of facetime in front of some of the best shops in the country, moderated by experienced coaches. They are very good at controlling tangent conversations and distraction, which I really appreciate. This group has not only helped my shop, but has helped me to grow personally, teaching me to overcome hard challenges that I was avoiding. I come home from our mastermind visits more confident than ever and my team back at home can see the difference, not just in my abilities but in the bottom line and their paychecks. We have almost doubled the shop's income since I joined. This group is not for everyone, I would only recommend joining if you plan to become the BEST at what you do!"
