Advancing The Profession of Pharmacy

Female Pharmapreneur’s Retreat & Mastermind 2019 – Las Vegas, NV

by | Sep 27, 2019 | Consulting Pharmacist Education

We recently completed our second annual Female Pharmapreneur’s Retreat and Mastermind at the fabulous Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada!

Masterminding is a concept made famous by Napoleon Hill’s classic “How to Think and Grow Rich“.

Wikipedia describes Masterminding as…

“A peer-to-peer mentoring concept used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other group members. The concept was coined in 1925 by author Napoleon Hill in his book The Law of Success, and described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. In his books, Hill discussed the idea of the Master Mind, which referred to two or more people coming together in harmony to solve problems.”

Recently, small business owners have taken this concept to a whole new level in the “facilitated Mastermind”.

A facilitated Mastermind is a formal meeting of entrepreneurs who come together to help each other with their businesses.

The best facilitated Masterminds are between 6 & 8 people, diverse enough to support each others strengths and weaknesses and homogeneous enough so that the business owners are at similar points in their business journey.

I, myself, have been involved in Masterminds throughout my business journey.

In 2016, I participated in a 6 month Mastermind with other women with online businesses.

In 2017, I participated in a 9 month Mastermind with other women with 6-figure businesses which were both online and brick and mortar.

And this year in 2019, I’ve participated in a Mastermind that combines in-person and virtual retreats.

Pharmacy’s First Formal Mastermind Event

The Female Pharmapreneur Mastermind & Retreat is pharmacy’s first (to my knowledge) facilitated Mastermind ever.

Represented by our group of 9 women were 7 states: Arkansas, Florida, Ohio, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania and D.C.

Also represented was various specialties, from diabetes education to health and fitness to pharmacogenomic testing to health systems.

It was truly a very special group and something I hope to offer again in the near future.

Upon completion of the Workshop, each attendee was presented with their own remind of how they are the Visionary of their business.

Also, we committed to staying focused on actions that move us closer to those goals and give us permission to say “NO” to opportunities that don’t align with those goals.

As we nine women gathered together, we felt the power of diverse backgrounds, diverse ways of thinking and the collective power of the Master Mind.

It was truly a magical experience and something I plan to offer again in 2020.

If you’re interested in our next event, let me know and I’ll add you to our waiting list.
