{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #50: Busting Mastermind Myths

I was recently having coffee with someone and she said she would never join a mastermind because she was afraid that the other people would know she had problems in her business. 

WOAH stop right there…

Today, I’m busting 4 myths about mastermind you don’t want to miss.

Myth #1: Sharing Only Business Problems

When looking for a mastermind find one that has you sign NDA (non-disclosure agreement) and Confidentiality agreement. This allows you to feel safe within a community and trusted space you can share open and freely. Ask questions about the community to make sure it’s a group you feel comfortable with sharing within. 

Of course, problems are things that come up in calls but its also a place to be a part of a community, talk marketing, and management ideas, build referrals, gain business resources and most importantly hare your wins!!

Myth #2: Focuses On Your Industry 

When you surround yourself with people who only in your industry or do exactly what you do and think about things your way. You are standing in the way of innovation. 

If you find a group that has people from various industries you’ll give the group a more dynamic and robust experience. Forcing you to be challenged and think in different ways with new perspectives. 

Myth #3: They Must Be at the Same Stage of Business as You

Don’t focus on the income so much as what you want to get out of the group. You will get out what you put in. What can the group bring to help you and you to help them? Choose one that you will find value in. 

Myth #4: Only Way To Grow Your Business

There are so many other ways you can work on growing your business, such as a coach. It will depend on how you learn, what you need, and what works best for you!

If you’re not a group person and you don’t learn well in group settings, private coaching may be better for you. But if you are craving business friends and community, masterminds may be your thing.

It’s important for you to know what you want and need to help get you there. 

Know that you don’t have to go at this alone. You can get all the support you need. BUT you have to ask!

{Podcast} Savvy Business Show #49: How to bring the energy every day

Savvy Business Show Episode 49

I’m so excited to chat with Sunita today and for you to hear more about Nepali Tea Traders a woman run, Boston based company. Starting heir company with ‘why’ in mind and how they could help the world.

English as a Second Language

First, we talk about English as a second language and how hard it was coming to the United States. Although writing in English was a taught in both of our childhoods we didn’t grow up speaking it and learning how to speak English. 

Co-Owning a Business with your Partner

Next, you’ll hear Sunita talk about co-owning a business with her husband. Before Nepali Tea Traders Sunita always said she would never work with her husband – I’m sure there are several of us who have said the same thing. If you have the drive everything is figure out-able. The key here is to have boundaries – when to talk about work, when to put the phones away, and when to be fully family mode. It is so easy to fall into the all work trap. 

The energy in your Business

As a mom, wife and running a business Sunita brings the energy to her business every day. She didn’t start out like this day one it has become an evolving process. To have control of her day, she needs to know where her energy goes and with this, in mind, she has created her daily ritual that brings the energy. 

One tip is that it’s not about what life throws your way but how you handle it that makes all the difference. I will allow you to guard your energy. This comes with lots of practice.
