So many of us these days are seeking deep meaningful, purposeful, and long-lasting relationships. Time is rarely on our side to seek and nurture new relationships. So how might we in 2023 make time for meaningful connections while also focusing on our work and family life? fylí may be one solution to this question.
#FutureForward with me and Jaclynn Brennan (Jax), Founder and CEO of fylí, a female mastermind membership community focused on educational masterclasses, accountability, peer-to-peer mentorship, leadership advancement, and funding opportunities for early-stage female founders.
As of December 2022, Gallup reported in the State of the Workplace report, a significant proportion of employees are not fully engaged in their work. Specifically, 85% of employees are either unengaged or actively disengaged. It just might be a good time to strike out and launch your own startup. Fear, doubt, lack of knowledge or resources, and lack of support may hold people back especially first-time entrepreneurs. A mastermind group may be a good support system for those who prefer to not go it alone and are open to collaboration, feedback, mentorship, and education.
For founders and leaders, a mastermind group may be pivotal to achieving success. Advisory Boards and Boards are essential to many businesses but where can you be yourself, and share your stresses, your challenges, and pains confidentially to receive in return non-biased insights? Moreover, where can you go to learn the lessons of "I Don't Know What I Don't Know" in a risk-free environment?
Surrounding themselves with multiple, high-performing minds, is what allowed new ventures and once-upon-a-time garage businesses to thrive and become established realities in today’s world. Think and Grow Rich
