What it is:

MiB Power Circles take networking to the next level where everyone is a leader and each member is supported in their individual objectives.

  • … a small group of 6-8 women co-leading and co-creating to activate our individual goals.
  • … increases our harmonic power by cultivating a safe and supportive space to reflect, share stories and get things done so all can reach their potential.
  • … does not draw on outside speakers. We use the resources of the members to help forward- motion our activities and propel us ever closer to manifest what we are there to accomplish.

How the Power Circle meets its promise:

  • Co-Leadership: Because we are co-leading this means we all draw from our collective strengths
  • Confidentiality: This is a high value that we imply and expect members to respect
  • Inside training: Members offer their expertise and use their modalities to help meet individual and group goals
  • Accountability: Being held to one’s commitments is built into the program & individual objectives are tracked
  • Interactive activities: These will include brain-dumping, business matchmaking, Sense shifting, experiential activities, meaningful play etc

TESTIMONIALS FROM COHORT #1:
I have a much clearer picture of where I am at in my business and where I need to go. It has given me laser focus
AND such tremendous enjoyment to help these wonderful women. Our "circle time" is the best part of every month! Shari, I am forever grateful that you took a chance and included me! ~DR

Our combined experiences and the resources that we share have leveraged each one of us. I have found accountability, support, friendships and a sisterhood. These monthly meetings are strengthening me as a business leader. Things are already different in 2017. The MiB Power Circle is a safe growing environment for anyone ready for a challenge in their personal or professional world. ~NM

There is an undeniable fire that comes from being with like-minded people, and the Power Circle guarantees you access to creative, ambitious and smart women. You simply cannot go wrong. ~AN

I joined the MiB Power Circle because I was ready to commit to exactly the thing that was promised to me if I joined. Thanks to the tough-love support I get in meetings and on the Power Circle FB group page we follow up in between meetings I have gained immeasurably. I am stronger, more sure of myself, more efficient in my calls and setting up meetings, have worked on my branding and feel more confident than ever before. Best gift I gave myself in 2016! ~GT

Count Me In! is for the wannabe, emerging, steady-on-her-feet female entrepreneur doing something with her pocketful of daydreams and it was written with you in mind. No matter what page you open to you will find just the practical and spiritual wisdom you seek; exercises to help you with your infomercial, your social brand, your website and how to network. We offer ideas about how to approach independent work, organize your office space and plan finances. You will read stories of women who share their why, how and what; you will likely recognize yourself in many of them. This book is about belonging. It’s about female entrepreneurship and the sense of community that comes with belonging to a networking group. It is about having faith in yourself as a woman entrepreneur, about building the courage to act on your big dreams and about networking standards today. Deciding to become an entrepreneur is a sacred choice that some people make after much angst and probably amid many naysayers. It’s a passport to the freedom and contribution people seek. For women who venture into it, this book is a soft place to land.

MiBBiES What they say and what they do

Dear Shari,
At my first MiB meeting I told you I was not there to get new clients since most of the members are not in my target market - I just wanted a place to meet some other goal oriented women. I did get clients from MiB in spite of not having that as a goal, filled a few workshops, found awesome business contacts, mastermind partners but more importantly I have filled my heart!
Having always been torn down and stabbed in the back by other women it was safer for me to be a lone ranger. Until now that is. I realize how many of my TRUE friends have come from MiB connections. This week I posted how I had been crying and was stepping into some new, bigger and scarier stuff and last night several people said "Why didn't you call me!" This is a new experience for me and I am still getting used to being included in such a supportive network.
Thanks SHARI!!! Stacey Hylen http://businessoptimizercoach.com

"The heroine never dies in the dark forest. She's lost and lonely, sure. The dark forest is where the heroine is afraid. But it poses no actual danger to her, beyond her own fear of it. It's just .....dark. It's also the place where, more often than not, she finds friends and helpers. If you're in the dark forest, you may be alone and afraid, but this isn't where you die. The story keeps going. Also, look for your friends and helpers".... Monika is a dedicated professional, caring and passionate about helping people reach their true potential.

"You look so much younger!” and “You look so much happier”! Ever since I started my Arbonne business 3 years ago, these were the compliments that I started hearing…..rather than “how tired I looked”.
You know how we are continually hear about people losing their jobs due to cut backs & the poor economy and how we repeatedly hear about someone else being diagnosed with cancer?? And how often we know someone who is retiring but still has so much to give & wants to continue feeling productive & to contribute, grow & learn
With Arbonne, I help people take control of their financial future! With Arbonne, I help people have time freedom! With Arbonne, I help people have choices! And with Arbonne, I share toxic free, vegan & botanically based products to help reduce the possibilities of cancer & increase health.
Ask yourself: If you could add something to your life, what would it be? Please call me to learn more about, what I always refer to, as my Gift…for so many different reasons!
