As an entrepreneur, sometimes the psychological weight of being the sole decision maker can weigh you down. From figuring out how to stay accountable to organizing your time and making everything happen without losing your mind, entrepreneurship isn’t a walk in the park ! Not having someone to bounce ideas around with can be the hardest part of running your own business.

For this reason, many entrepreneurs ,including myself  have found that Mastermind Accountability groups help them stay focused and successful.

In this episode, I talk to two of my favourite people, Warsha and Evan about the power of Masterminds. Warsha and Evan  co host the Dare to  Scale podcast and as coaches, have helped a multitude of businesses to grow from start-up to scale-up! They both love helping dreams become a reality by bringing about the transformations that take one from founder to leader, consultant to business owner. The joy that Warsha and Evan get from what they do is what makes them look forward to every new day.
