Who can participate in Koinonia Business Women's Mastermind Groups?
Christian women who are entrepreneurs, business owners, authors, speakers, consultants, independent agents, and/or professional women/executives. Our mastermind groups are for faith-based women in business who are serious and passionate about what they do and the work God has called them to.

Although we market our organization to women, we welcome Christian men in business if they desire to join as well.

What does “Mastermind” mean?
This is our definition of masterminding – To share our depth and richness in join participation, bringing ideas, strategies, experience, wisdom, resources, encouragement, collaboration, and problem solving skills to share for the mutual benefit of all. It’s helping each other solve problems, get ideas and create strategies for success. It is a high level brainstorming or "think tank" environment with faith in God as our foundation. By ourselves, we do not have all the answers. When we come together, we can serve as a board of advisors for each other. “In a multitude of counselors, there is safety.”

At KBWomen's Mastermind Groups, business women meet together, once a month, in local cities. There is a wonderful synergy that happens when like-minded ladies meet together in person!

Our Mastermind Chapters are specifically for Godly small business owners & entrepreneurs.  Group members and facilitators together form a team environment by guiding each other, recommending resources and sharing knowledge, ideas, strategizing, expertise, encouragement, and past experiences. The two main facets of this group are:
  1. Practical: Through brainstorming, feedback, discussion, sharing, teaching, and interaction, members will gain valuable ideas, skills, and strategies related to marketing, establishing and growing an internet presence, goal setting, PR, systems, time management, problem solving, overcoming fear, action planning, etc., to positively impact their specific business.

  2. Relational: Supporting and being supported by like-minded business owners in a safe, confidential environment. In a team atmosphere, we are partnering with others for the benefit of all.

Why should I join a mastermind group? How can it help me? 
Mastermind groups provide a powerful community and an environment of support for business people. The added benefit of KBWomen's mastermind groups, is that participants there share the foundation of faith in God. When people of God understand purpose, calling and God-ordained work, collaboration goes to whole other level! Mastermind groups can help participants to:

  • Get marketing ideas

  • Learn about and share business resources information
  • Create cross-promotion/cross-marketing opportunities within the group
  • Get feedback on new ideas and get clarity on goals
  • Find new customer leads
  • Hear what others have done to set up their business structure and systems
  • Share their expertise and knowledge with others
  • Define purpose and vision
  • Have the opportunity to practice presentations
  • Get advice on solving problems
  • Feel supported and encouraged
  • Much more...

If you desire to brainstorm, learn, give and receive wisdom, and are serious about growth, a mastermind group is exactly where you need to be.

What does it mean to take turns being "In the Spotlight?"
Each month, two Mastermind Group Members at each meeting will take their turn in the spotlight, meaning they get to bring questions, ideas, issues, and problems to be potentially solved to the group. Other participants give their feedback, share experiences and wisdom, match known resources to needs, offer new ideas, and help the Members in the spotlight move forward, get unstuck, make decisions and/or formulate plans.

How much does it cost to participate in a KBWomen Mastermind Group?
KBWA has 3 Membership levels, all with yearly and monthly payment options. Levels 2 and 3 offer participation in the live Mastermind Groups/Chapters.

Level 1: $129 per year, or $15 month. (Virtual Learning)
Level 2: $319 per year, or $30 per month. (Virtual Learning and Mastermind Participant)
Level 3: $799 per year, or $70 per month. (Virtual Learning, Mastermind Participant and Personal Coaching)

NOTE REGARDING MEMBERSHIP DUES & BUSINESS TAXES: All members of KBWomen can deduct the membership dues as “dues,” not charitable contributions.  For example, it is the same as paying local business chamber membership dues.  Business association dues are tax deductible because it is an ordinary and necessary business expense. Refer to your CPA or accountant for verification.

What are all the benefits of being a KBWA Member?
There are too many great benefits to explain here, so please visit our Membership area now! http://KBWA.memberlodge.com

What kind of commitment is involved as a Mastermind Group Member?
Mastermind groups meet monthly for 90 minutes. As a group member, you bring value to the group by offering your wisdom, expertise, past experiences, ideas, thoughts, and help to other Members. You also bring value by being teachable, asking questions and being authentic with your needs. We ask that you keep other group members in prayer, attend monthly meetings faithfully (we know things come up from time-to-time), treat group members with respect and keep sensitive information shared by others confidential. Please visit our KBWomen Chapter FAQ page for full details.

How do I sign up to become a Mastermind Group Member/KBWA Member?

How do KBWomen Mastermind Groups fit into the vision for your organization?
The very definition of the word "Koinonia" means, “To be in fellowship with God and with like-minded believers. Sharing our depth and richness in joint participation.”
Mastermind groups fit perfectly into our organization’s purpose and vision! They give participants the opportunity to collaborate and grow, as they both receive, and contribute.
