What is the Painkillers Mastermind?
Running a small or solo business is challenging… you don’t have to do it alone.
This group is an opportunity to connect with your peers, and find out how they run their practices. Find out how they charge, how they deal with scope creep (or boundary issues) What’s working (and not working!) for their business.

What is a Spotlight Session?
In keeping with a mastermind format or style there will be opportunities for Spotlight Sessions (I refuse to call them “Hotseats” as other groups do, it’s intimidating. The Painkillers Mastermind is focused on support, and solution). In a Spotlight Session you and the group will work on your business, your challenges, sticking points and such. We will create and offer constructive ideas for adjustments. Every time we meet there will be a dedicated time for folks to offer updates, and WINs, so we will await yours!
