Benefits of Peer Groups

When you belong to a small business peer group—also known as mastermind groups—you suddenly have access to benefits, knowledge, and skills you could never acquire on your own, including…

 

  • You’ll receive the support and camaraderie of fellow entrepreneurs who have “been there, done that.” You don’t have to be alone at the top! 

  • You’ll get your own seasoned “board of directors.” They’ll give you sound, confidential advice based on their own experiences.   

  • You’ll discover a world of inspirations and ideas that help you view your business in a whole new way.

  • You’ll find the motivation to accomplish difficult but necessary tasks. Your peer group will hold you accountable for your actions.

  • You‘ll utilize a sounding board where you can air prospective ideas for your business and receive unbiased feedback.   

  • You’ll have a way to regularly focus “on” your business instead of “in” your business. It’s structured and scheduled, so you can’t procrastinate. 

  • You’ll enjoy the opportunity to build good business connections and relationships.

  • You’ll experience the gratification of sharing your own knowledge with others.

What's a Meeting Look Like?

PRO peer groups meet for half a day, once every month. Groups are composed of no more than 12 members, typically business owners, presidents, CEOs, COOs, and managing partners. They lead companies that are similar in size, revenue, and complexity, but in non-competing industries. 

 

Each meeting is led by a professional facilitator and follows a planned agenda. The agenda includes a specific topic discussion of universal interest, followed by an open discussion where members share their most pressing business issues.

I'd cut a lot of corners before I would give up PRO.  The knowledge I get from PRO is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
