THE BUSYGAL MASTERMIND ALLIANCE STORY
When you launched your business did you feel like you started out of desperation rather than inspiration? Prior to starting had you been struggling to get a job or had you always known that you wanted to start your own business? By any chance were you over 40 when this situation started?
I know that for me, my struggle began in earnest in 2009 after the age of 45. I would have had better luck being struck my lightning twice in the same spot before I could get a job back then? Granted I had the credentials and over 20 years of experience, but try as I might, I couldn't get a permanent job. I was officially unemployable!
In 2010, the ultimate humiliation came when I was told “off the record” by a well meaning head hunter, that my problem was that those hiring want to hire people younger than me, because I reminded them of … wait for it… their “Mom” as I was now 46!
Can you just image being told that!?!
It took me a long while, but I finally woke up and realized a truth. The only way to guarantee income into my household, was to be in business for myself!
So after much prayer, reflection, research and re-education (I call it PrR&R), I bootstrapped my own business, BusyGal in 2016 in order to provide a platform for all Women over 40 who want to be educated and empowered towards entrepreneurship!
When the Recession finally lifted between 2014 and 2016, it never lifted for millions of women over 40 - myself included. The pundits would have you believe that unemployment has decreased due to the job market opening up, however this is just not true. You can get employment as long as you are willing to hold down a job with no power, low pay, and absolutely no social prestige! The real reason that unemployment is down is that millions of Americans have left the workforce to strike out on their own as small business owners - specifically middle aged people - and leading the charge are Women Over 40!
My mission today is to change this global conversation and within the next 10 years (by 2030), educate, empower, and entertain 100,000 Women Over 40 as small business owners, provide platforms for meaningful peer connections and socialization, build a ROKU Television Channel (BGTV) featuring original programming designed to inspire and encourage women to make the leap to entrepreneurship and provide them with a platform of affordable business services. These services include entrepreneurial education, access to capital, licensing and business opportunities, as well as coaching, mentorship and community building — ultimately helping women over 40 to become better entrepreneurs!

WHAT WE DO
We host 2 different types of MasterMinds for Entrepreneurial Women Over 40
The Trailblazer Entrepreneur Mastermind
The Maven Entrepreneur Mastermind
You haven't opened your business yet, but you're right on the cusp of creating something spectacular!
You're interested in learning the basics about business ownership so that you can know what to expect as you launch that new business and grow it considerably within the next 18 to 24 months.
You need camaraderie and insight from other new business owners who are also in the thick of building their businesses.
You realize that a 12 week commitment and an investment of $1500 now is a small price to pay for the entrepreneurial and life success you stand to gain later.
You're a Founder of a New Business
You've been in business at least 6 months or your company is doing at least a mid 5-figures ($50,000), and you want to take things to the next level.
You clearly recognize the ROI (Return on Investment) that this $3600 investment provides to you.
You are not intimidated by a 9 month commitment to begin solving your life and business challenges, finding lucrative opportunities for growth, networking and developing deep relationships with other women entrepreneurs, and becoming a better yourself.
