We are mixing it up in 2017 with our email newsletter: we are going back to a monthly publication schedule but will dedicate one issue a quarter to a roundup of events and activities we have planned for the coming months and some key milestones our clients have achieved.

We continue to focus on bootstrappers and small group facilitation. This year we are extending our focus to intrapreneurs and change agents who have much in common with entrepreneurs. We are fortunate to have Jeff Allison join us to support our new Mastermind for intrapreneurs.
If you are interested in a webinar or a version of our talks or workshops for your organization or your team please contact us. Our Mastermind groups are face to face but we have delivered a number of well received talks and workshops remotely.
We have openings in a couple of our peer accountability – mastermind groups. Comparing notes and making commitments to a group of peers can enable you to see things you might otherwise overlook and to persevere on tasks where you may have previously faltered. Active participation in a mastermind group one of the best ways to reach your goals. Contact us if interested
