Do you want access to a group of smart people who meet twice monthly to lean on each other, give advice, share connections, and hold each other accountable for the personal goals you set? If so, we'd love to have you join our inaugural Idea Works mastermind group, designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others.
Although it may sound a tad "new agey"-- the concept was originally coined by author Napoleon Hill in his 1925 book The Law of Success, and described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich.
Come and see what's possible!
Calling all members-- we want you to come spend one hour with us once a month! We will provide donuts and coffee; a 15-minute spot for a member to share a project they're most proud of or would like some help with; and some useful, exciting content around rotating topics like getting more customers; funding growth; systematizing operations; managing your workload and scaling your business.
It's all very casual and there's sugar and caffeine; but we'll help each other get things done.
Your idea in 54 hours
Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?
