“I’ve been in a few mastermind groups, and I love two things about LBDS: the women, and the structure. LBDS members are unfailingly wonderful, empathetic, crazy smart, driven, thoughtful human beings and it’s such a relief to have hard, meaningful, complicated conversations when that’s who you’re having them with.”

How many members are in a Mastermind group?
The groups max out at 8. Creating small groups allows for more intimate conversations. It also means you get to have more time in each meeting to share your challenge and get feedback.
Who are the typical Mastermind members?
Members include women who run established businesses full-time. The format of our Masterminds is not ideal for freelancers and MLM. Previous members include: Business Coaches, Caterers, Content Writers, Event Designers, Floral Designers, Graphic Designer, Interior Designers, Lawyer, Makeup Artists, Owner of Modeling Agency, Photographers, Realtors, Social Media Consultants, Stationers, Website Developers, Wedding Planner, Wellness Coaches, and more.

How are Mastermind meetings hosted?
Meetings are hosted via Zoom, video-conferencing, so we are able to see each other.
Do you have local Mastermind groups?
Unfortunately not at this time. I transitioned all Masterminds to virtual in 2018 so I could create an experience that is consistent between groups. However, if you know several women in your local community who desire support and accountability I would be happy to discuss creating a local Mastermind.
I am not able to attend one of the dates scheduled for the mastermind. Am I able to prorate the membership?
No. The cost of membership is for the collective access to your curated group of women and community resources.
Am I able to sell or transfer my membership to someone else?
No. Due to the privacy and nature of topics discussed it is important that we protect the integrity of the Masterminds within the membership. Each member also signs a Non-Disclosure Agreement with their respective Mastermind group.


I want to participate. Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes, there is a payment plan. You will be required to make an initial deposit. The remaining balance will be split into equal monthly recurring payments.
Can I register with alumni or a new member to take advantage of the 'With Friend' payment option?
Yes. When you fill out your application, both of you must include each other’s full name under the referral question (page 1).
