This group is intended to be an interactive group of positive-minded high-energy individuals who have, want to start or are thinking about starting a new business.  They are committed to creating the action steps to move themselves forward, and they are willing to help others do the same. This includes folks who have left or are considering leaving corporate America, folks who are seriously exploring a new business venture, and folks who have created a new business and are stuck or are exploring other options.  In all scenarios, these are folks who are seeking support with an orientation towards action.
The framework will be a 1.5 hour meeting held on the first and third Monday of each month.

We will operate as a mastermind group.  According to Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, a mastermind is defined as the "coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose."

Your "definite purpose" will be your business idea and your fellow colleagues will commit themselves to offer as many ideas and support they can to help you move along your ideas.

MEETING FORMAT

 

  • Brief check-in (ideas, successes, accomplishments and challenges; intention for the meeting)
  • Presentation on topic of the day
  • Business-specific activity (exercise, worksheet, brainstorming)
  • Mastermind discussion with partner or in small groups
  • Wrap-up of lessons learned and next steps with entire group

 

We will use the buddy system.  Each active participant selects a buddy to be a support / accountability partner in between meetings.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
