Today we will focus on Sheryl Sandberg’s top 10 rules for you to be successful. However, before we jump into those rules I wanted to quickly say two things. Firstly, thank you for listening to this podcast!. The first word that comes to me is gratitude. I am grateful for everyone who is listening, and I’m grateful for all the amazing awesome guests. I have learned so much from everyone sharing their lessons learned, tips and stories. They have been such an inspiration to me, I hope you feel the same way. So thank you to all the guests who have shared their wisdom. We are always looking for business owner’s…. entrepreneurs who are interested in being a guest on Inspiring Greatness! So that is you or if know of someone who would be fabulous please reach out or send us a quick email to Shelley@maxumcorp.com.au
Secondly, I recently conducted a Facebook survey and asked a women’s group if they preferred to participate in a business networking mastermind program with a mixture of men and women OR just women. The results were kind of shocking as the majority of responses were women business networking.
That has encouraged me to quickly talk to the women on this podcast who are listening about a great program to support women-based businesses. Because sometimes business can be lonely – no matter how strong your team, how deep your knowledge or how much experience you have, it’s natural to feel isolated and alone. Are you making the right decisions? Could you be doing things differently? Or better? Do others know shortcuts that you haven’t yet learned?
An organization called Business Chicks here in Australia founded by Emma Isaacs has two amazing programs to support women business owners.
Both programs are 3-4hr meeting per month for 10 months.
PowerPlayers Elevate is a platform for entrepreneurs to come together, learn from each other, and give back to each other – you’ll get raw, honest and vulnerable – it’s like your very own circle of trust. Everything is highly confidential and each monthly, peer-to-peer mastermind session is facilitated by a leadership executive with decades of experience. is. The program is exclusively for founders and owners who have a significant share in their businesses and a minimum of one employee.
Power Players The PowerPlayers program is a peer-to-peer facilitated program designed for busy entrepreneurs who want real results. You work directly with your peers on your business, not in it, during a monthly session. Each session is expertly facilitated by an external consultant with decades of leadership experience and is designed for you to get perspective on your business challenges, and find perspective to propel you forward. All members go through a strict application process to ensure they’re a fit to the PowerPlayers culture, and are then assigned a group. Our philosophy is that no one is more important than another, no one is busier, and there are lessons to be learned from everybody, no matter their experience and business size. We place emphasis on the giving of your expertise as much as receiving it.
If you’re ready to lift your business game, increase your knowledge and play among the best, then PowerPlayers is for you. This program is exclusively for founders and owners who have a significant share in their business and a minimum of two full time employees.
