Weekly events & updates
February 18, 2021

We have launched our first Encore Mastermind Group and are recruiting members for a second group. Participation involves a commitment to meet for 1-1/2 hours every two weeks at a day and time agreed upon by group members. There is no fee to join, but donations are encouraged.

If you are interested in participating or just want to learn more, please email Tim Lybarger at EncoreNEO50@gmail.com.

*A mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring group 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.
