- Feel isolated as a woman business owner?
- Want to grow your business but aren’t sure how?
- Wonder if you’re making the right business decisions?
- Wish you had a board of directors whose expertise and advice you can trust?
Then membership in a WEBO Power Circle is just what you need! Power Circles promote problem-solving and creativity among a small group of women entrepreneurs and business owners in a safe, supportive, constructive environment.
WEBO Power Circles connect passionate, motivated groups of 5-6 women entrepreneurs to provide objective and actionable advice for the specific challenges and opportunities you face with your business. Discussions cover all aspects of running your business, from reviewing a marketing brochure to handling a difficult customer or developing new business areas.
What is a Group Mastermind?
Group masterminds are a proven methodology to provide perspective, positive reinforcement, problem solving, and a structure for accountability. WEBO’s unique approach to these groups incorporates group coaching with an experienced business coach and a peer advisory component to provide training, structure, and support to ensure effectiveness. The process allows each individual member of the group to present their business challenge or opportunity every month, with a rotating monthly “hot seat” for an extended, in-depth review of one member’s current situation.
Are there other benefits to joining a Power Circle?
In addition to monthly group meetings, Power Circle members receive these exclusive benefits and services:
- A business coach and mentor assigned specifically to your Power Circle.
- Accountability partners for support and encouragement between Power Circle meetings
- A workbook to organize your goals and activities during the six months
- A private Facebook group with your Power Circle to connect and engage between meetings

Tell me more about Power Circles
Power Circles are comprised of 5-6 women who meet to share experiences, exchange ideas and to help and support each other as part of their professional development. Members commit to meeting once per month for six months.
Meetings are confidential, which encourages members to share freely. Confidentiality is key to realizing the full potential of Power Circles, and members will be asked to sign confidentiality agreements.
To the extent possible, Power Circles are comprised of members whose businesses/professions/trades are not in direct competition with other members of the group. This creates the safe space necessary to allow members to dig deep in sharing their challenges and successes, and maintains the group’s success with confidence and privacy.
Encouraging Community and Connection
One outstanding characteristic of Power Circles is that they automatically attract women who are in harmony with the group’s purpose. Your fellow Power Circle members are energized, passionate women business leaders like you, and together you can do great things both in and outside of your business.

What Past Power Circle Members Are Saying
Katherine McGraw Patterson’s Power Circles and individual marketing program are PHENOMENAL!!! From day one, Katherine has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and grow my business more than I thought was truly possible! She is warm, positive and encouraging, which made me feel like I could conquer the world! Katherine’s creative and realistic approach to marketing made it easy for me to make small changes each month, which eventually added up to a larger clientele and ultimately a bigger revenue! In my second month of working with Katherine, I BLEW my financial goals out of the water! Each time I left my group and private sessions, I was so inspired by Katherine and her ideas! I owe so much of my success to her!!!!
Kim Mattei, Owner, Believe In Yourself Spa
I had many ideas on how I wanted to pursue my business goals, but I hadn’t yet taken the plunge to put myself out there. Katherine’s coaching provided the kick-start, confidence, accountability, and nudge I need to get my proverbial ball rolling. As a result of the coaching work I did with Katherine, I have brought in three new clients, and have clearly identified my “Big Hairy-Assed Goal” and the specific steps to put my business on the path to success. Katherine’s strong leadership skills have a way of making you feel accountable towards reaching your goals, yet she has this amazing kind, open-hearted appeal that makes her totally approachable too. The combined energy of her person was just the balance I needed out of an instructor and coach, yet mentor and confidante. I would strongly recommend working with Katherine for the incredible support, accountability, and tools she offers to empower myself and further my goals as a women entrepreneur. I am indebted to Katherine for providing the means and forum to kick-start my year.
Laurie Petrone, Owner, Meraki Marketing
Before I started working with Katherine I was worried about time – my use and abuse of it, feeling like it is elusive, frustrated by it, I was goal-less. Katherine’s helped me identify real, solution-based ideas on how to move my business forward. Her kind-hearted but firm approach allowed me to verbalize my blocks while she “held space” and pushed me out of my stuck ways of thinking. Her coaching is focused and results oriented. Since working with Katherine I have a clearly defined goal and workable plan, and have already put resources and systems in place to help me get there.
Jill Keuth, Life Coach
Prior to working with Katherine I was struggling to find a focus and lacking a consistent schedule for my business. I have restructured my daily routine and schedule to accomplish more work. I am excited and motivated by some projects I have created which could lead to more closed deals in a shorter amount of time. It was very helpful having the support of other business-minded women, who are also mothers and know the struggles of everyday life. To have a mastermind group to bounce ideas off of and challenges was very helpful and helped me to reach decisions I felt more confident in. Katherine did a great job of keeping us on task and moving timely through the content. Katherine has good concepts, thoughts and ideas on how to better structure your focus and identify roadblocks to allow you more time and the ability to earn more money.
