Imagine having the ANSWER or CONNECTION for any business problem, just one phone-call away. Specifically, imagine being part of a group of six entrepreneurs, each with a specialized skill set, who meet regularly to share experience-based advice, share network resources, and help solve each others’ business problems. From famous industrialists like Henry Ford & Andrew Carnegie, to “lending-circles” in Microfinance, to the notorious “Paypal Mafia” (pictured above) – the peer-mentoring format known as a “Mastermind” has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs grow faster and better.
