  1. Cindy,
    I need my own personal board of directors. Like the thought of each of the six different roles people play on my personal board. Never had thought about it in this way and it makes so much to have these different kinds of people ti support me. Thanks Cindy! Great show!

  2. Cindy, I love this advice! You are spot on. I need to work on growing and enhancing my board of directors. I love the six roles and I am going to work on implementing a diverse group of knowledge with your advice.

    Thank you

  3. What a great concept – a personal board of directors! I love putting this concept that we probably all have in some way in our lives if we are blessed enough. I think I will be more intentional about this in my own life. Thanks Cindy!

  4. Cindy, this is awesome for me to start thinking about who I want on my personal board of directors. I love the idea of surrounding myself around 6 different people, all with their own individual skill sets, that I could learn from! Thank you!

  5. I’m pretty facinated by this idea. Trust the personal BOD will be a great tool to help individuals know their personal strengths and areas of improvement. Just love the idea…

    • Hi Jamil:

      Thanks for taking the time to view this video. I also love the idea of a personal BOD – I REALLY do have one and I value their input so much. This is a great way to help you grow and develop. You really are putting together a team that help you grow.

      Thanks again.

  6. This sounds very much like The Alternative Board, an organization that I belonged to for many years in my former business. Each Board was made up of 6-8 business owners. We met monthly and we served as a Board of Directors for one another. We offered many of the skills and tasks that Cindy mentions.

  7. Great show, Cindy! I’m in a place where I’m putting this group together and this was perfect! Each role was clearly defined and I was delighted to realize that the people I have in mind each fit into one of the categories. Thanks.

    • Hello Karen,

      Thanks for taking the time to video this video and to respond. I’ve had a person BOD for several year and they really have helped me with many decisions about owning a business. I’m glad you were able to use this information!

      Best Regards,
      Cindy Allen-Stuckey

    Don’t you just love SERENDIPITY? Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” message today encouraged people to develop a Master Mind Group. How exciting to find your very valuable message with advice regarding the six people to include. Nicely done Cindy. Thank you!
