APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN FOR BALLARAT
Kick off November 2019
Being a business owner can be a lonely gig, but after fifteen years working with the brains behind the brands we’ve found that ultimate business success comes when we step out of that comfortable vacuum of isolation and open ourselves up to the experience and knowledge of other like-minded women. If done the right way it can spark chain reactions of insight, strategy break-throughs and motivation that are impossible to achieve on our own.
Yes, making time to step outside the whirlwind of day-to-day operations can seem like an unattainable luxury, but to truly enter a state of rapid growth it’s precisely what the most successful business owners find the time and courage to commit to.
And the best way to achieve that is with a strong community rallied by your side; a community of individuals who have your back no matter what challenges, or successes, your day, or month, may bring.
That’s why we’ve developed a 12-month peer-to-peer group facilitated mentoring program for ambitious female entrepreneurs and we’re looking for business owners to join us.
We know that the size and composition of business mentoring groups are key to cultivating the right environment for growth, so we’ve created an in-depth application process where we get to know you and your business and strategically place you with 6-8 women who we’re confident will best facilitate rapid growth in mindflex and outcomes based on your business type and personality.
Why groups of 8?
We knew you’d ask that! It’s because groups of 8 provide the best chance of overall group longevity and inspired lateral thinking. Less than that tends to see energy levels drop and more than 8 means you’ll run out of time to each have the opportunity to share your insights and challenges. Our group size has been selected to ensure it’s large enough to generate a range of opinions and ideas yet small enough to create a more intimate setting where you’ll really get to know each other’s businesses and personalities and form lasting bonds.
We’ve no doubt you’ve accomplished some big, hairy audacious goals in your career and now it’s time to join us and accomplish even bigger ones together.
What participants are saying!
“When I started the process of applying to be part of the P2P mentoring program we had to write down 2-3 goals to achieve. I was not sure what to write, so I reached into the back of my mind and pulled out one thing that I have been thinking about. To win an award for my product. With the regular meetings and catch up’s I felt I needed to make progress on this goal. So I took one step at the time, researched, wrote submissions and the machinery was in action. I now enjoy the honour of having received 2 sliver medals, 2 gold medals and a Champion and reserve champion medal for my Nordic Crackers and most recently a gold medal and Best in Class at the Australian Food Awards. .
If it had not been for the Peer to Peer Mentoring program my dream of having an award winning product would still be on the list of things to do one day. Thanks to the structure, encouragement and my own hard work I now have multiple awards to show for it.” – Mette Neilsen, Mette is Baking
Is this program right for me?
This program is right for you if you:
- Have been in business for at least a year
