Masterminds

Are you looking for an informal business advisory board? Learn more about our Masterminds program!

Masterminds is one of the many free programs that NAWBO Kentucky offers to support women business owners. If you are a woman business owner, whether you have been in business six months or 20 years, you can benefit from being a part of a Masterminds group.

Masterminds is a group of 7-10 women business owners who form an informal board of advisors with other members of NAWBO Kentucky. Our vision is to create productive, interactive groups of women who are encouraged and enriched by participating in the Masterminds process. This program enables us to grow our businesses as we grow in our understanding of ourselves and how we do business. Each person brings a unique perspective to the group and benefits from sharing insights into problems and solutions. All members of the group gain greater objectivity, value, and a sense of their own power from peer support.

The key is total confidentiality surrounded by other women business owners that you have made a commitment to support. Each member is required to sign a confidentiality agreement so it is clear from the beginning that the information imparted during the Masterminds sessions is not divulged to others outside the group.

Many times we are able to discuss problems that can’t be discussed in any other arena and get the suggestions we need to reach a resolution. Other times, we simply need a safe place to vent emotions and feelings that are a daily part of running our businesses.

Masterminds groups provide all that and even more – the basis for ongoing friendships and a sense of continuity.

Here is what members of Masterminds are saying:

“Masterminds is a valuable tool for my business. I get great feedback from the members and look forward to growing with the members in my group.”

-Gail Iwaniak, Stuffology
