Arrive Coworking Mastermind Groups
Limited Capacity seats available

Arrive Coworking + Community exists to empower women in business and in life. We gather weekly to network, mastermind, learn, and encourage one another.

Our weekly mastermind groups are one of our signature events. We follow Napoleon Hill’s mastermind ideology. We have small groups - 4-5 women - led by a facilitator. Everyone gets roughly 15 minutes to discuss what they’re working on or what they’re struggling with, and the group can help provide ideas and solutions. The time ends with what everyone plans to hold each other accountable for, and the conversation begins there next week. Typically, these groups are ongoing for a significant period of time, to develop trust and camaraderie. We are opening up the opportunity to work with one of our coaches and experience a mastermind for the afternoon at Arrive. We’d love to have you join us!
