Hey there,

I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to check out my Mastermind group affectionately called the Ann Arbor(ish) Mavenmind Group.

I started this group at the beginning of 2019 as a selfish project to get more accountability and connect with women in the same boat as I am.

It’s free because I believe in the power of transformative change through community.

We meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 9:30-11 am on Zoom. We also plan something social once/month to connect outside of work.

There’s a Calendar with all of the dates for 2020 that I will send to you.

A few things to note:

  • This is a very informal/casual group.
  • The primary purpose is to provide support for women solopreneurs.
  • This isn’t about selling or giving advice. It’s about connecting. (Of course if working relationships form out of the group that’s AMAZING)
  • I am not a business coach nor do I have any other experience with masterminds so this is a very fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of thing.

The meetings usually start with some chit chat to catch up, brief introductions and then small group discussion around a particular challenge we’re having or feedback we’re needing.

It’s continually evolving so it may look different than that from meeting to meeting.

Right now, there are about 50 women in this group but 5-10 usually show up each time.

The more the merrier. The more perspectives we can get, the more we’ll learn to look at our situations from different lenses.

As this group has grown, I’ve started to automate some of the administrative things. (That’s why you’re reading this on a page on my website.)

I’m trying to make sure this doesn’t take a huge amount of my time to manage.

On that note, if you could fill out the form below, I’d really appreciate it.

Once you submit it, you’ll get some more information from me, including how to join the Facebook group and where and how to find information about our events.

I’m an email marketer, so I typically keep folks up to date that way.


I’m Emily McGuire

I’m the Owner and Chief Email Marketer of Flourish & Grit: An Email Marketing and Automation Studio.

As someone who honors the grit it takes to get through this world, I appreciate ways to work smarter, not harder.

With lessons learned over a decade in tech, sending thousands of email campaigns, and earning clients over $80 million in email campaign revenue, I love sharing the mistakes and strategies of email marketing done well.

You’ll typically find me with a cup of coffee in hand because #momlife. When my head isn’t in my laptop, you can find me chasing my toddler, reading a book or binging trashy TV.
