FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2020
DENVER, Co – Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners (WEBO) Network today announced that enrollment in its signature Power Circle Mastermind program has opened for the second half of 2020. The six-month virtual program is open to all women business owners and aims to offer peer support, professional coaching, and accountability partnerships to help these entrepreneurs grow. Groups are launching in July.
The Power Circle Mastermind program is targeted at women business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking for support, resources, and accountability in reaching their business goals. Participants will collaborate with other group members to develop plans and strategies for achieving their objectives.
WEBO Network an independent, unaffiliated group for female business leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals. The organization sponsors events, programs, and opportunities that allow members to expand professional networks while supporting, encouraging, and learning from each other. WEBO offers two levels of masterminding, the first is what founder Katherine McGraw Patterson calls “mini-masterminds” during regular monthly events. These open sessions invite attendees to share challenges and issues to gain insight through the experiences and knowledge of other business leaders at the table. The second level is the Power Circle Mastermind program launching in July.
“We offer our members and guests the opportunity to tap into what we call ‘the mind juice’ of the group at all our events,” says Patterson. “The difference in the levels of masterminding is that the Power Circle is a dedicated, structured program in which a small group of business owners not only help each other achieve goals over the long-term, but build deeply personal relationships.”
WEBO Network actually evolved from her professional mastermind program, says Patterson, a brand and business strategist. She was using the mastermind approach with her own coaching clients, and saw the need for that type of connection in the women’s business community. “Our first lunches and after hours events introduced a more casual discussion and mastermind approach for the women in attendance,” she says. “We pretty quickly realized that allowing women to not only show their own vulnerabilities and uncertainties as business owners, but to turn around and support others with their own experience, resources, and knowledge built deeply authentic personal and business relationships more quickly than a traditional networking or leads group.”
Patterson points out that according to Tackling the Gender Gap: What Women Entrepreneurs Need to Thrive published by the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship, identifying role models and mentors is especially important for women, who tend to have less confidence in their entrepreneurial abilities and believe they lack the skills needed to be successful. Research shows that mentorship is closely linked to small business success, with owners who receive three or more hours of counseling reporting higher revenues and employment growth rates. Group masterminds like WEBO’s Power Circles are a proven methodology to provide peer mentorship, professional coaching, problem solving, and positive reinforcement.
Past participants in the Power Circle Mastermind program have successfully launched new products and services, implemented cost saving systems and procedures, increased revenue, and more, says Patterson. “The most rewarding thing is when a member comes to me and says they’ve had their best month ever, or doubled their income, or secured new clients because of the work they’ve done in the Power Circle,” she says. “That’s confirmation of what I’ve always believed – masterminding works!”
The Power Circle Mastermind programs meets monthly via video call. A private online community also allows participants to connect, ask questions, offer advice, and share successes between meetings. In addition:
- Participants are assigned to a cohort of 5-6 women for the entire six-month session.
- Each member of the group has equal time at each monthly meeting to share their goals, challenges, and progress with other members.
- Between meetings, members are assigned accountability partners to help them stay focused and on track with their goals.
- A professional coach is on hand to facilitate meetings, guide discussions, and provide advice. During the six months, each member received individual assistance during one or more one-on-one sessions with the coach.
Discussion, goal setting, accountability, and progress are tracked using a proprietary program and workbook developed by Patterson over the five years the Power Circle program has been offered.
WEBO Network has chapters in Fort Collins/Loveland, Broomfield/Westminster, and Aurora/Parker. Members are eligible to attend meetings at all chapters for no additional registration fees.
