Raise your hand if you’ve been given this advice:
Build a community.
Network, network, network.
Success is about who you know.
We’ve probably all heard at least one of those mantras at some point in our lives.
And while I agree with them, there is one piece of advice that’s missing:
Find your inner circle.
I don’t mean it in a Regina George kinda way, I mean a few key people who you can go to about your business.
Your entrepreneurial peers, if you will.
Because let’s face it, your mom or boyfriend aren’t always going to get it.
And as someone who has been in the game for a while (experiencing entrepreneurship with both a co-founder and without), I can confidently say this:
You have to get out of your head.
When we run our own businesses it’s easy to think that the sun rises and sets on it. We get so caught up in the day-to-day grind of keeping things afloat that we often forget to come up for air.
And that’s where your “inner circle” comes in.
About six months ago, I started a “mastermind” group with Lorraine Sanders of Spirit of 608 and Nicole Giordano of StartUp FASHION.
We meet once a month to discuss our businesses — what’s going well, what’s been challenging, new tools and resources we’re using, people we’ve connected with, etc.
And tomorrow (Thursday, 4/27), we’re going to show you how to start your own.
But, here’s the deal. This is not like a normal webinar where you sit and watch slides — and it’s not even like Factory45 LIVE when I interview people on camera.
This is a live example of how we (Lorraine, Nicole and I) run our own mastermind. So, basically, we’ll be having a candid conversation – discussing different topics – as a live example of how you can create your own.
And we’ll walk you through how to apply it.
This will be totally unscripted and will give you a first-hand look inside our businesses.
If you’ve ever wondered what we talk about behind the scenes, how we support each other and why creating an “inner circle” is a business’ best kept secret, then this is your chance to join us.
There are 100 spots available on a first come, first serve basis and there will not – I repeat, will not – be a recording!
Please only register if you know you can join us live.
This is all happening tomorrow (Thursday), 4/27 at 3:30pm EST / 12:30pm PST.
And don’t worry, you won’t be on camera, but you will be able to ask questions — so bring them : )
Hope to see you there LIVE (no recording) tomorrow!
