Register for meetings
MavenMinds meets TWICE A MONTH (in person) for 90 empowering minutes.
Here's what a typical meeting agenda looks like:
Arrive a few minutes early & chat with your fellow Mavens.
10:30-11:00am WELCOME & MAVEN INTROS
After a quick restatement of our mission & purpose, each Maven (and guest) will have 1 minute to introduce themselves & give their "elevator pitch."
11:00-11:15am NEW BUSINESS
Here's where our group gets to help shape future events, meetings, membership benefits, etc. We believe that everyone has something to contribute!
At each meeting, one Maven gets 10 minutes to give the rest of us a closer look at her business, her "superpower," and her ideal client/customer. This makes it easier for us to refer the right people to her — and for us all to get to know each other better and build meaningful, supportive relationships. A 5 minute Q&A will follow the Showcase.
The Maven who presented the "SHOWCASE" the week prior will lead a brainstorming session around a specific business problem, challenge or question. Examples from past meetings: "I'm struggling with my pricing strategy. How do you scope and price projects for profitability?" or "I always have a 'summer lull' in new business. What strategies are you using to keep the pipeline full as you move into your 'slow season'?"
11:45-12:00 ASK + PROMISE
This is a CORE benefit of being a Maven! At the end of each meeting, every Maven (and guest) gets to make a specific "ask" -- either of a specific Maven or of the entire group. Anyone at the meeting can "promise" to help with that ask (and always do!). Examples of "asks" from prior meetings include: "Listen to my podcast & leave a review;" or "I'm looking for freelance graphic designers at the mid-level of experience, with solid e-commerce experience;" or "Can you take a look at my pitch deck & provide feedback?"
This is where #MavensHelpingMavens really makes its mark!
