Facebook groups are best when they have a purpose!
We created a group called the Disruptive Entrepreneurs’ Mastermind (formerly Disruptive Business Owners) with a very specific purpose in mind.
The purpose for the group, was to make a place where business owners & entrepreneurs could go to have a safe place. Where they could connect with a group of like-minded people, and feel comfortable asking questions.
“Being an entrepreneur is sometimes the loneliest thing
in the world. And just you emailing me every so often
makes me feel less alone.”
This is something that is a big deal at our live events. A lot of people talk to us about these events, and their biggest takeaway tends to be something like: “I felt like I was in a group of me. I felt accepted. I felt like I could ask questions and I could in engage.”
Hearing this, we wanted to create that feeling online.
"One thing I (Stephanie here!) noticed last year, was that everybody in this Facebook group was just going crazy about doing a mastermind. So, we hosted a mastermind, but then we got busy with the Grow Retreat and we didn't really get back to hosting more masterminds.
"But we're going to start doing those again for our group members once a quarter! Because we want to get back to the core of what this group was: A place for the group to support each other, to engage, share ideas, to facilitate connection!"
Being a business owner is tough and sometimes it's very lonely.
We've all been there. Stephanie recently received an email that made us all cry a little bit, because the writer was simply sharing how earnestly grateful she was because Steph checked in with her on occasion.
That is exactly what we wanted to do. We created a place where entrepreneurs can feel less alone, where they can feel connected with. Sales happen when people genuinely connect, but this group is not about sales. It’s about filling that need!
This is an awesome group, and we’d love to see you as part of it!
