Sally Becker is back on the podcast, talking about her current work and latest missions to Mosul. Sally’s charity Road to Peace really needs your help to pay for medical supplies for severely malnourished children in the war zone.


Sally tells about the most difficult mission she’s ever been on, the dangers she and the doctor accompanying her, Dr. Marino Andolina, face when there, and the extreme hardships the people suffer there from ISIS attacks.

If you visit Sally’s website: RoadtoPeace.org.uk (https://www.roadtopeace.org.uk) you will see photographs and videos of the children she has already helped to receive medical help in the US, and those for whom the help is too late.

CNN and the BBC have covered her work, which you can also see on her website.

I know it sounds as if I’m pushing for donations. That’s because I am. This is a cause where all of the funds you send go directly to the needy people. No middle man.
If you are inspired by her work, send Sally an email on the contact page on her website and let her know you appreciate her.
I appreciate you for caring.
Be well and safe everybody.

In today’s conversation, Karp Randel founders Robbie Karb and Jane Randel tell us about how and why they became partners, how their previous careers at Liz Claiborne LLC gave them the experience they need, and how they continue to work to make social change from inside corporations.

Jane is a co-founder in #NoMore, raising awareness about and fighting domestic violence and sexual assault.
She is also an advisor to the NFL and NASCAR regarding issues relating to domestic violence.

Robbie is on the executive board of Human Rights First, an independent advocacy organization that works to ensure that the U.S. is a global leader in human rights. She is also on the Board of Educational Alliance, an established settlement house serving the needs of the multi-generational lower Manhattan population by providing direct services around education, jobs, and overall wellbeing.

I met Shelli Warren in my own personal mastermind group. We are now friends, mentor each other when needed, rely on each other, and will jump to help the other figure out a sticky spot in her business, or wherever.

On today’s episode, we talk about benefits of the mastermind.
Here are a few:
• Practical goal setting and follow through
• Support
• Friendship, even global friendships
• Learn to own your strengths
• Accountability
• Propels you into a higher level of performance
• High level profit planning
• Investing in a mastermind allows you to take full advantage of it, you devote your time and efforts to succeeding
• Brainstorming on your business, get creative!
• Find out where your weak points are, get ideas and advice on how to strengthen them
• Reach goals that were previously unattainable!

We also hear about Shelli’s career, and how she can help you with your own ENCORE CAREER.
Thank you, Shelli! It was great to talk to you on the podcast!

I run mastermind groups, both in-person and virtually, or on-line, and I think it’s time we talked more in depth about what the benefits are, why you should definitely join a mastermind, and what goes on inside a mastermind group.
We discuss the different types of masterminds, the structure, the size, the time spent at a mastermind, how often you should meet, and if it’s necessary to pay for a mastermind for it to be effective.

I talk about the following benefits of joining a mastermind group, which include:
• Getting and giving support: usually professional support, but sometimes you might need some personal support and you’ll get it from your mastermind cohorts. You will learn about your own business by supporting others
• Accountability: Don’t underestimate the power of peer pressure, when it’s used wisely. You won’t want to let your group down by not fulfilling the goals you promised you’d meet. That accountability will move you forwards in a few months more than you’ve progressed in a year. I promise!
• Goal setting: we set reach goals each week, then meet them. We also learn to set goals that are right for us, something that we weren’t already planning on doing that week. If you don’t meet your goals, we’ll figure out why.
• New outlook on your business: your mastermind buddies will not be in the same field as you. You’ll benefit from their experiences, different to your own. And getting new eyes on your work will spark your occasionally dormant creativity.
• Your network will grow: you now, through proxy, have access to your mastermind’s network, globally. Your network just got a whole lot bigger. Use it!
• Friendship: Very quickly you will care about the other women in your group. It just happens. You are thinking about how to help them, they have helped you unconditionally, you’ve seen them struggle, they found solutions to your problems. These friendships stick even after the mastermind is over.

Listen to the podcast to hear about structure, time frames, very big and very accessible mastermind groups that you can join.
Or form one yourself!

Share this episode with a friend or two. They’ll thank you for it!
