"High 5" Real Estate Women Mastermind Group
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”. Jim Rohn
A few years ago Liz and Andresa were brainstorming different options to resolve a business issue when we realized that it would be great if we had a "support group" where we could come and share our challenges, ideas and wins. We started looking for this group but we were unable to find it, so we decided to create one. That is how the "Women Only Real Estate Mastermind" group was built.
Once a month, ladies around the country are committed to meet "on line" to discuss what is happening or not in their business. Those are fierce and lazer focused conversations that take place within two hours and it's followed by a plan of action.
Besides being able to share challenges and celebrate the accomplishments, the group is a safe place to deal with sensitive matters and gain accountability. The process has helped us eliminate the feeling of "being alone", to get out of our comfort zones and take our business to the next level.
Now it's time to share what we have learned with you. The High 5 Real Estate Women Mastermind Group intention is to guide you to do the same. The outcome is for women to launch their very own mastermind group so that their personal and business life can flourish and grow.

The benefits of being part of a mastermind group with like minded people are endless. It gives a woman her own advisory board and eliminates the feeling of “being alone” while running your business. Members are committed to one another’s success, challenge each other to create and implement goals, and support each other with total honesty, respect, and compassion.
"The High 5 Real Estate Women Mastermind Group was created to support other women on how to build a strong support system around themselves. By using collective intelligence women can provide and receive honest and constructive feedback on how to deal with challenges, how to start a new project or how to take their business to the next level. Thus we are creating a safe space where women can expand their network, develop deep and meaningful friendships and eliminate the feeling of "being alone" while running a business."
"I used to coach flipping and was surrounded by ALL these people that flip. Which was fine, I loved it. But I wasn't growing. I'm trying to buy larger multifamily and raise more private money so I really need to be surrounded by people who are where I want to be, have a positive mindset, believe in each other and are headed in the same direction! If I want to be that ... I need my circle to be that. It keeps you educated, inspired and on track!"
"I was nervous about lending a local flipper 50k. Since I knew a few people in my group have been on the receiving and the giving ends of private lending, I posed my idea to the group. I was able to get one to review my legal documents and give advice on things to make sure were also included. Another gave me some insight on what I should expect from the process once the money was lent. Others simply motivated me to take the leap. I'm happy to say that I lent the money AND I got it back".
The concept was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill in book "Think And Grow Rich". It is one of the most powerful tools used by successful people around the globe.
"We meet once a month and it motivates me every month. It is so empowering to know you have other women that struggle with the same things you do and have found ways to overcome them! It also helps to have an ear when you have large decisions to make in your business. Some of these women have already made these large decisions and can provide SO much insight. And even if they haven't, they are still able to make suggestions that lead me to a great decision. It helps to talk about business struggles out loud with other people that will not judge you, understand you, and can provide constructive feedback to help you grow" April Crossley
My group of six is an amazing team of brilliant women from across the US. Having perspectives on how to grow different parts of my business that I didn't even know needed help until I met them has been a game changer. I have branched out into more social media, started investigating new income streams, took the leap to start lending private money, and so many more. These ladies demand I take action, and I don't disappoint. Dawn Brenengen
It has given me accountability, friendship, and inspired me. It is a place I can share my business challenges with in confidence, and helped me to see things from other perspectives. My business (and mindset) has grown substantially since joining our mastermind. Jonna Weber
