Nance L. Schick“Jeri, I can’t tell you too much how grateful I am for your coaching and confidence in me (even when I resist). I love your commitment to others and the world, your humility, and your curiosity of and appreciation for all of life’s offerings. You keep me inspired.” –Nance L. Schick, Esq., Counselor at Law, Business & Conflict Resolution

6. Accountability partners. Members will be paired and put in daily or weekly contact with one another to encourage and support each other to move forward toward their goal

Participants will complete pre and post program questionnaires so measurable results can be identified and quantified.  The questionnaire will asses each company’s revenues, profitability, collaborative efforts, employees and attrition rates, use of international resources, import/export trade and a variety of other factors.

The experiences of the participants plus their results may be documented in a white paper or another publication, permission granted. Press releases will be made available to standard media and social media when appropriate.

If successful, this pilot program may be extended and duplicated in Kenya and perhaps other countries. The mastermind concept may be determined to be a highly effective means of facilitating international small business growth, economic empowerment, strategic alliances and expanded markets.
