Founded by Professional Organizer Eva Abreu, owner of Sort Things Out in Piscataway, NJ, she was inspired to start the mastermind group because of the changing economy and to help guide business owners and professionals in re-organizing the way they think about managing their businesses in order to thrive in the new economy.
"Many people get depressed when they hear news about the direction of the economy," she explains. "They end up getting stuck in their way of thinking and not able to take a step out of their comfort zone to look at things more objectively."
By participating in mastermind groups, she hopes that new ideas can be generated and implemented thought the brainstorming process with other business professionals. According to Ms. Abreu, "Nothing gets accomplished by worrying and complaining about the economy." She offers the following advice: "Start by taking some type of action such as attending a networking event like our mastermind lunch session where you can meet other professionals and exchange ideas."
"Next," she explains, "is to learn how to implement a new idea into your everyday life and business practice so that positive changes can happen." To manage any type of change, Ms. Abreu advises that "instead of staying stuck in the mud and spinning your wheels going nowhere fast, make a plan, then take it one step at a time to move forward. Make sure, though, to keep your thoughts, words and actions in a positive light. That's the key."
