“I started my own pharmacy last year and would love to hear other female owners thoughts, hardships, etc.”
Today, I want to tell you about one of my secret weapons for building a successful consulting business: a Mastermind group.
I can't even begin to tell you how big an impact it has made on me personally and professionally, but I'm going to try.
Imagine having a brilliant group of peers who meet every month to focus on helping you meet your business goals... It is kinda like putting your business on a whopping dose of steroids.
A formal Mastermind group is something that I feel so passionate about, I've decided to offer it to a small group of pharmacy owners!
First, let me ask...
If you are a female pharmacy owner, sharing revenue goals with your gal pals probably isn’t on top of your list of interesting discussions.
However, it doesn’t mean it isn’t important to find a small group of like-minded entrepreneurs who share your challenges, wins and goals.
I've been participating in formal Business Masterminds for the past two years. In 2016, I participated in one that lasted six months and had a big impact on my business. Spurred on by the group, I published a book, grew the Pharmapreneur Academy, started podcasting and transitioned my coaching program into a monthly membership Community.
In 2016, that investment help me grow my side-business from $0 to $40,000 in revenue.
In 2017, I invested in a nine month Mastermind program for women in more advanced businesses generating over six figures in revenue. With their encouragement, I have set goals for my small business to earn over $100K in revenue and then to grow that into profit.
Plans for 2017 included building the first ever virtual pharmacy conference (ElevatePharmacySummit.com), speaking at several national pharmacy meetings, doing some corporate consulting and even publishing another book!
In fact, my Mastermind directly had an impact on the Elevate Pharmacy Summit. It was their ideas and encouragement that led to me creating the written transcriptions of each interview to offer as a Bonus to All-Access Passholders.
Therefore, the 2017 Elevate Pharmacy Virtual Summit Program Workbook would not even exist if not for their idea!
At some point, it was mentioned the cost to hire all the members of our group (all professional, highly educated women) would be tens of thousands of dollars in total.
But as part of a Business Mastermind, each member is committed to the success of the other members and does whatever they can to support the individual. The sum of the whole group's expertise is part of the magic of masterminding.
Brain power x 10 is just another perk of membership!
This is truly the power of having a diverse group of minds "coordinating and functioning in harmony".
Each member makes an investment because they know they'll see a return on their investment.
The value of my personal Mastermind is immeasurable, so I have decided to facilitate a Mastermind program for female pharmacy owners!

Remember, an investment in a Business Mastermind is a promise to yourself to spend two dedicated days per month working ON and growing your business, instead of working IN your business.
Take the time to strategize and grow!
The number one piece of advice I heard from interviewing successful pharmacy owners on the Elevate Pharmacy Summit was how hiring a business coach was one of the things they wish they'd have done sooner.
Don't wait until you have:
Because you'll never get to the "enough point" without a strategic plan to get you there...
Basically, you'll never have "extra time, money or resources" unless you make an intentional commitment to do so!
In the Female Pharmapreneur Business Planning Workshop and Mastermind, we'll help you create plans to streamline processes, add revenue and get to your goals more quickly that you had dreamed.
