Q & A
Leadership Girl (LG): Tell us about your business.
Leslie Flowers: I facilitated an ongoing, annual high performance women’s business mastermind. I’ve done more than 60 multi-week mastermind studies since 2008. I also provide accountability services at YourAccountability.com as many women want the accountability to keep them on track. I facilitate workshops and seminars, I’m a certified speaker (CS), a certified coach and consultant (LSC), and an inspiring and motivational speaker, having majored in drama at San Francisco State. I serve primarily women entrepreneurs and small business owners, yet my corporate fast track program has yielded wage gap crushing results by women moving up the corporate ladder.
LG: Who do you serve?
Leslie Flowers: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. Her clients understand 1) that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.

LG: How did you get into your current business? What opportunities or needs did you see?
Leslie Flowers: While already an expert in many personal development arenas by 2008, I wanted to work with the best and went into business with Bob Proctor, likely the most savvy thought leader in the area of principles of success and universal law. In 2013, I moved my mastermind studies and trainings to women when I discovered the results of a study by IWPR (Institute of Women’s Policy Research) for North Carolina revealing it would be 2054 before women and men would earn the same fee for the same work. I knew that women were stopped from being successful because they had no clue about what it took to become successful in business. Women must be successful in spaced intervals over time by executing their own directives in growing a business.
LG: What have been your biggest challenges?
Leslie Flowers: Helping women who believe they are my ideal client and who really want to work with me and succeed, yet are not willing to do what it takes based on fear and resulting lack of confidence.
LG: What has been your greatest reward?
Leslie Flowers: For fourteen quarters, I have trained and watched women set and reach their goals through the power of mastermind. My reward is their successes. Last year I guided twelve women through their money stories to invest $1,000 dollars in an event serving entrepreneurs and small business owners focused on moving their business from great to extraordinary. They didn’t know the results and had faith and confidence in themselves to execute the event. The best part was that I got to write a check to twelve women right after Thanksgiving … the event proceeds. This was THE biggest thing they had ever done in their lives.
LG: If you could change something, what would it be?
Leslie Flowers: That people choose to continue learning as I believe learning is our unique gift as humans and it serves as the ‘miracle grow’ for our minds.
LG: Who are your ideal clients?
Leslie Flowers: Who I serve is the same as my ideal clients: Women who are already up at bat swinging. They have achieved a level of success; it’s simply not consistent or predictable. They have confidence and are looking for more. They not only want to succeed, they are willing to do whatever it takes, without violating the rights of others. They are coachable. My clients understand 1) that their results exceed or match their level of investment in their own personal development and growth, and 2) are hungry for continuing to learn the information they know will take them where they want to go.
LG: Social Media, Yay or Nay?
