Iron Sharpens Iron: How to Surround Yourself With the Right People

I had a great time in San Diego last week learning and speaking on a panel at my business mentor Lisa Sasevich’s​ Event Profit Secrets training.

I looked at this picture and realized that I have literally been surrounding myself with successful women over the past year, including the “Black Women Millionaire” Mentor herself, Dr. Venus Opal Reese​!

All of these ladies inspire and motivate me to keep doing the work to empower thousands of women in our Happy Black Woman Community to create their ideal lives and businesses over the next few years.

Just in terms of our reach, we’ve gone from ZERO to 13,000 Twitter followers, 20,000 email subscribers, 75,000 pageviews/month and 200,000 Facebook fans. On the revenue side, I’ve gone from replacing my previous salary to surpassing the 6-figure mark with our transformational products and programs.

At this point, we reach a LOT of women all over the world every single day and still, I am constantly looking for additional ways we can spread the word and help even more women claim their freedom through personal development and entrepreneurship.

I remember when Happy Black Woman was just a little itty bitty blog back in 2010 when I had first quit my 9 to 5 nonprofit job and I was writing about the exciting, yet terrifying transition from employee to entrepreneur.

5 years later, here’s what I know for sure:

The journey is never easy, but it’s always worth it.

And the great news is, you don’t have to go it alone!

You can take training courses, attend events and join mastermind programs where you will meet ambitious, like-minded, supportive women who can and WILL help you reach your goals.

Take our Launch Your Business Virtual Boot Camp, for example.

Our 2015 course begins this Wednesday, March 4 and the ladies who have enrolled in the program so far are already bonding with each other in our private Facebook group.

I love seeing them make connections and discover all the inspiring women in their new “tribe.”

I love seeing them pair up as accountability partners throughout this journey to build their businesses.

Because as the saying goes…

Iron sharpens iron.

And if you don’t have a support network for your business, maybe it’s time for you to make some new friends.

Training, coaching and mentoring are all priceless.

But when you can combine that with a crew of positive sisters who have your back?

Now that’s even better.

Hey, it’s not too late to join us if you know you need this kind of support in your life.

If you know you need to start surrounding yourself with different people…

Join us in the 2015 Launch Your Business Virtual Boot Camp.

So tell me…who do YOU need to learn from, surround yourself with or be mentored by this year to help you reach your big goals?
