A Wild Hair

SerenbeLabryinthCreative business genius Laura West and I were on the phone the other day and we had what us Southerners sometimes call a wild hair…

I’ll get to that in a second but let me just get you up to speed by reminding you that if you are a woman entrepreneur, you have most likely heard me shamelessly bragging about our extraordinary community…

the Pink Coattails Women’s Business Mastermind and Network, a soulful, welcoming, down to earth joyful group of women business owners including…

the owner of a nation-wide barbecue sauce company who is a real country gal, a high level virtual assistant who is one of the funniest women I know, a stellar therapist who writes some of the most moving short social media pieces I have ever read, an accomplished acupuncturist who is delving into the energetic realm, a women’s financial planner who is financial concierge…

I could go on, but let me get to that wild hair:

Our PinkCoattails Spring in-person retreat is  fast approaching at beautiful Serenbe Farms here south of Atlanta…

normally, the retreat is open only to members of our Pink Coattails Mastermind, but as Laura and I  were talking, we asked ourselves this wild hair question…

wouldn’t it be fantastic if more women could experience our in-person retreat without having to commit to a year long business Mastermind…

So, we are opening the Spring retreat up to just four more women but you have to act fast, fast, fast because we need to reserve your room before our room  block reservation expires…

the two and a half day retreat begins with our  arrival on Tuesday afternoon, May 24th at Serenbe Farms here south of Atlanta…

you’ll be introduced to our Pink Coattails community and welcomed with open arms, then, you’ll experience a business retreat like no other you’ve ever attended…filled with laughter, lots of good food, walking the labyrinth under Serenbe’s tall Georgia pines, a campfire under the stars, deep conversations and insights into your own  business that you just didn’t think were possible…

and you’ll leave with (dare I say it!) love and affection for the community you’ve come to know, as well as life-long friends and colleagues…

Why are we doing this?

Because we believe so strongly in the value of personal business connections in a beautiful, serene environment to restore your energy and self-confidence in both your life and business (after all, we see this happen at our retreats time and time again…

and we want YOU to be a part of it!

Here’s what to do next: Simply send an email to ellen [@] pinkcoattails.com and let me know you are interested. I’ll get right back to you with a time to talk briefly on the phone so you and I can get to know each other better and see if the retreat is right for  you (and you for us!) and, so I can give you all the details…

Laura and I can’t wait to meet you and I’m waiting to hear from you…

Ellen

P.S. Reply to this invitation right now so we can get a phone appointment set up, as we don’t have much time left. This retreat is going to be such a wonderful heart-opening experience for you and I promise you’ll be delighted!

Why The Old Business Mastermind Model Is Hopelessly Out Of Date And What Is About To Take Its Place

Listen honey, how many times have you heard women entrepreneurs bemoan the way online business is done and calling for a new ‘collaborative’ model? If you’re like me, you hear a variation on this conversation nearly every day of the week; in Facebook groups, when you get together with your colleagues and even after hours at live events.

But so far, it’s been all talk and wishful thinking. No one, to my knowledge, has come up with a viable model.

Until now…

You see, since the fall of 2011 I’ve been quietly conducting a little ‘behind the scenes’ experiment…

a ‘project’ of sorts that has grown and evolved into something beyond my wildest dreams and which has turned the way business is done completely upside down!

Specifically, the way business Masterminds are done…

You know the drill: a business coach, usually one with a ‘Big’ personality, puts together a live training event. During the training, an offer is made to enroll in one of the coach’s Mastermind groups or other programs.

But as increasing numbers of people experienced this model, I started hearing more and more people complaining that they just weren’t satisfied…both from the coaches point of view as well as the participants!

The coaches complained that the live-event, multi-city tour routine was exhausting to do year after year and the participants often complained they felt lost in the crowd or didn’t get enough (or any!) one-on-one time with the coach…

or they felt like they were expected to become a ‘clone’ of the coach or were just starting to make progress at the end of the year and then had to pay again to re-up or all of the above!

That’s when my little experiment started to take shape…

And so I began to think, dream, plan, and yes, pray for a solution to this problem. Then one evening, in late summer of 2011, the solution came to me…

I immediately began to implement my ideas and that fall we launched our first 6-person Mastermind and the following year, we opened another. Over the last couple of years, we have fine-tuned our ideas into a living, breathing, organic entity that is rapidly becoming the model for how business should be done…

a model that truly serves, values and benefits everyone involved. And that’s why we’ve attracted a group of simply amazing women

My friends, if you have been longing for a business Mastermind like no other, a community of genuine, caring, loving business women who will welcome you into their lives and into their hearts, not just for the next year, but for a lifetime and you want..

an experienced, seasoned Mastermind leader who is open, who listens, and who knows how to make complex things (like planning a social media strategy!) simple…

then I invite you to move away from the ‘business as usual’ mastermind groups and take a look at what we are up to…

With much love and affection,
