Answer – It is great to make a list of people that you know. Could be friends, family, co-workers, strangers, people you want to partner with in business, etc. Once you have your list commit to bringing 1 or 2 more people to the next meeting you have. And challenge those who attend with you to do the same for the following meeting. This is the best and fastest way to grow your Coffee Connections.

Answer

Answer – The best strategy for choosing a location is to choose a place that is easily found or recognized, one that has room for a group to potential grow in, and has a good atmosphere for learning and discussing together as group. 

10. What time should I have my Coffee Connections at?

Answer

Answer – Most of the Coffee Connections that we support start in the morning hours before the regular work schedule of 8:00am. But there is other Coffee Connections at different times of the day as well, and they are successful. I would analyze your schedule and your co-leaders schedule and choose a time that works the best for you all and then test drive that time a few weeks to see if other people can get involved.

13. What is it we are trying to accomplish with the meetings, what is the goal?

Answer

Answer – The goal is to assist each participant to learn how to solve their challenges / problems. Many individuals struggle with this as it seems that maybe people are a tad cynical at times. There is no expectation that leaders or people in the group sell anything. It would be nice . . . of course . . . for the Coffee Connection, if people do gain financial benefit that they would give something financially back as well. ???? For those individuals who have maybe never experienced anything given to them of massive value without expectation OR maybe they have never given something to someone else without expectation . . . well . . . we guess there is always a first time and that’s exciting to see people make breakthroughs together as a group and individually.

14. How do you get everyone’s biggest challenge and help them reach their goals?

Answer

Answer
We have the online version of the ActionCard that you can use for newcomers and have them fill it out to get their information and biggest challenges. You can also ask for printable versions of the action card to be sent to you, so you can physically hand them a card and have each guest fill it out. We recommend doing this because of a few reasons:

1. You won’t know how to bring value to each person unless you know what their biggest challenges are.

2. Because Life Masteries is a non-profit organization, most of their resources are free or very affordable. So if you submit everyone’s biggest challenge to the network, we can support you by sending you the appropriate resource to help bring value to everyone!

To help your members reach their goals, we have established the curriculum that groups can use Totally up to you if you want to use it. Groups are free to develop their own curriculum if they wish and if they would like to share it with other groups as they have been shared with, that is always encouraged. This is often – The Foundation Workbook – that groups will get started. There are 12 topics to choose from. The 12 topics could be covered over a 12 week period of time or 12 months, whatever the leader believes is best for the group.

The first topic is “The Secret About Time.” Why? If you asked 100 people what their biggest challenge was, usually around 33 of those people will share a challenge with something having to do with time. Also if you can give your members / participants the gift of time, they will be forever grateful AND having more time usually helps almost every challenge / problem to be better.

There is also a strong focus on helping business owners earn more money? That seems to be one of the biggest challenges that most business owners have. If we help business owners in our community learn how to earn more money, that’s great for not only that business owner, but all their employees and the community as a whole.
