What we're about
Teamwork makes the Dream work. Let's create a Dream Team and make our dreams a reality.
I am creating this group with the vision of it being a personal Board of Directors for each member, for optimal professional success. Let's create a diverse Mastermind group of Toronto female entrepreneurs who are serious about creating, building and IGNITING our businesses. Respect, Collaboration, Creativity, Outside-the-Box-Thinking, Empowerment and Support will be key ingredients. Members must be willing to GIVE just as much as we want to GET from our club and eachother.
Friday and Saturday afternoon meetings from 2 - 4 PM, once or twice per month - choose a day that suits you or attend both if you want to.
The odd Sunday meeting will be held at times when I am unable to secure space for a Saturday (the Community Centre we meet at is busy and books up quickly).
Downtown Toronto - @ the 519 Community Centre (519 Church Street)
I am shaping this group around business ideas and strategies put forth by Dorie Clark (www.dorieclark.com), an impressive Entrepreneurial Thought Leader and Influencer. I am not affiliated with Dorie, I simply love and believe in the work she puts out, she really knows her stuff. Other members are invited to add their own models of inspiration.
The vision for our group is below (respectfully borrowed from an EvanMichaels mastermind group I saw that charges $99/month. Our club is FREE as I was able to secure a fre e meeting space (the 519 Community Centre @ 519 Church Street).
"Masterminding" involves bringing people together with different experiences and ideas to collaborate, brainstorm, and provide support to help the participants achieve their goals. For business owners Masterminding can help you model other successful entrepreneurs, make you accountable for achieving your goals, and provide you with your own personal experienced board of directors.
SHARE your ideas and get feedback from other Toronto female entrepreneurs so you can leverage their success and experience to rapidly grow your business. If/when possible, we can bring in speakers/thought leaders, perhaps via (free) webinar.
ACCESS different perspectives, input, and resources from our network of female business owners from various backgrounds and experiences. Let's help eachother and draw on the different skill sets we have to offer in order to ELEVATE one another to greatness.
ACCOUNTABILITY - this group allows us to hold ourselves accountable to others for key goals we have for our business and have a mechanism to help us follow through.
VOICE - At each meeting, each member will have 10-20 minutes of their own time to share their specific challenges and get feedback and suggestions from the rest of the group. This is your time to bring up your important business issues and get valuable advice to help you move forward.
GOALS - At the end of the session, members set goals for the next month and are paired with another member. A weekly or bi-weekly time is set between pairs for a quick phone call to follow up and make sure you follow-through on your goals.
PRIVACY - Members abide by the Honor Code of Sisterhood whereby we respect the privacy and confidentiality of each member and each meeting and all content contained therein.
COMMITMENT - There is a time commitment which is not to be taken lightly. It consists of coming to the meetings each month and calling your accountability partner to make sure you follow through on your goals once a week. Membership is not for everyone. You have to be serious about building your business and be willing to share with and learn from other entrepreneurs.
