If, like most business owners, you have attended a number of networking events, but received no follow-up business, you may have started wondering if your networking efforts are in vain. Networking is considered to be the best way to get your name out there.
If you are an entrepreneur bootstrapping your business - you know that all costs count! Every cent spent outside of your business is money that you could have paid into your business. I paid all my schoolfees on hard knocks and lessons when I left corporate.
Having never belonged to a Mastermind group myself – other than joining study groups in school and college and in the corporate environment sitting on a Junior Director’s team - I have come to the conclusion that I am ready to find myself a group of like-minded people who will thrive in a ‘tribal council’ environment in support of the ‘tribe’s’ growth and development - as a tribe and as individuals.
Here is an overview of my findings on the reason to believe in Mastermind groups.
We host regular 'Open Days' at Superhero HQ in the burbs - Edgemead to be specific!
Why? Because we think that you might need some incentive to come and try our space out - and we're happy to provide you with that.
Also -we think Friday's rock - and we try and keep them open for Blue Skies thinking and creative inspiration and we think you might love being a part of that process.
As you can imagine - we've done tons of research into the viability of starting a shared office space in Cape Town - and specifically in the Suburbs.

So doing a thorough job of researching the market's needs was of utmost importance to us in order for our shared office space stand a good chance of succeeding.
Shared office spaces are designed to be a business Eco-system.
Welcome to our new community member - Stephen Lambrick owner and operator of Beta Bathrooms Resurfacing Specialsits! This team have apparently been around since 1990 - working from home. They have taken a big step in securing a monthly desk at Superhero HQ as they require a corporate office from which to see potential clients - and receive goods from client for resurfacing.
They will still maintain their spray booth and workshop at another premise but as Stephen says, "It makes sense to take the business to the next level, and doing it this way means that we're not spending unneccessary overheads in managing and maintaining offices ourselves. This way we get all the benefits of having an office - but we get the added value benefits of slotting into a business eco-system that exists in Superhero HQ and a business park. It also gives us a professional address for client visits, client meetings and delivery of post and goods. We're thrilled and can't believe we didn't see this opportunity sooner!"
