Special Member Programs
Mastermind Groups bring professional women together to consider a problem faced by one participant at a time. Members of the group then brainstorm solutions. Getting creative, experienced women focussed on you and your business challenge is a great way to gain both accountability and support. Learn how it works.
Tina Greenbaum, one of our volunteer Mastermind group leaders, puts it this way: "The power of great minds together is much greater than our individual ability to see many possibilities. It's a priceless experience."
