How to Beat the Post-Vacation Back to Work Blues


Right before you leave for a vacation you’re doing all the things in your business to make sure everything runs smoothly when you’re gone. 

  • Systems, check. 
  • Content created and loaded, check. 
  • Team members know their role, check. 

Looks pretty good. So, you go and have an awesome vacation. 

However, when you get back, you feel tired and a little (or a lot) overwhelmed with trying to figure out where you left off and what’s the priority.  

It’s the “post-vacation back to work blues.”

These are my favorite tips to avoid the post-vacation back to work blues and how to get back into momentum in no time.

First I just want to say, I get it. I used to get back from vacation and not feel motivated AT ALL. My brain just didn’t want to kick into gear and I felt overwhelmed with the huge to-do list not even knowing where to start.

And if you’ve been following me, you’ll know that I just got back from 2...

Welcome to the Breakthrough Mastermind


Welcome to the Breakthrough Mastermind 

This is the The Breakthrough Mastermind Show and I’m your host  Jen Argue. Today, I’m excited to let you in on the magic of masterminds and set the course for our new adventure.

Let’s go!


Imagine this…

Welcome to the first Breakthrough Mastermind Podcast. Allow me to set the stage for you. 

Imagine having coffee... with a group of your friends who are smart and caring. They are also a  group who you feel really understand you because in many ways, they’re in the same boat you are after chatting for a bit, you share with your friends, a struggle that you’re having. They might even ask you some clarifying questions to make sure they really get  it. Then you  invite their input. From the knowledge of their own education and experience, they generously share an idea to help you out. That’s great, isn’t it? But wait, it gets better now that they’ve heard...

How to Trust the Twists and Turns


How to Trust the Twists and Turns

Here we are in the second episode of the Breakthrough Mastermind show where I’m laying the foundation for where we’re going.

Part of looking ahead is knowing where you came from and how that influences the journey you’re on. 

I invite you to walk with me today through the twists and turns of what led me here. Maybe you’ll see yourself in some of it and be inspired to lean into the opportunities that come your way!


My early years

So, thirty some years ago I started my career as a licensed mental health therapist. I loved what I did and I felt blessed that I could start a career right out of the gate that I loved.

The next 25 years held its share of twists and turns. Marriage, kids, and moving to 3 different states. And being a therapist is one of those careers where you need to apply for a license for each new state which entails fun things like board exams that require massive amounts of study. I was licensed in...

Which Type of Mastermind is for You?



In this episode we’re going to be talking about the key transformational elements of a mastermind and the different types of masterminds. 

It’s important to understand these key transformational elements because once you understand these elements, you’ll see how some of these elements show up in a stronger way in the various types of masterminds.


The Power of Groups

With my background as a licensed therapist and having been leading groups for over 30 years and having been in some very powerful groups myself, I’ve always believed in the power of well led groups.

There are 4 key transformational elements about groups that I’m going to highlight.

  1. There’s an element of real time feedback from others. When you’re with one person, like let say once coach. They can give you feedback and you might ask yourself if you trust it or not. When you got feedback in a group, you might still question the feedback but typically...

The Beauty of a (Business) Community

Tell me about your family!

Who are your friends?

Where do you hang out and with whom?


We ask and answer these questions all the time. 

They’re questions of connection. And they remind us that our lives are not (and cannot) exist in isolation.


Life is richer together.

Family feels closer when we seek each other out. 

Friendships have a deeper meaning when we make time for each other.


The same goes for your business community.

But business relationships are harder to find.


Regularly, I’m impressed by women I meet, counsel, and coach who are remarkable at what they do– they're smart, visionary, accomplished.


But lonely.


It’s as if their business accomplishments have isolated them from others.

And they feel it.


Women business owners need connected relationships, as well.

In fact, I’ve discovered that those who prioritize their business community relationships go further and remain inspired.

2 Factors That Matter When Choosing The ‘BEST’ Mastermind

choosing mastermind tips Nov 16, 2019

From the moment we wake it seems like everyone is vying for our attention. It doesn’t matter if it's for new clothes, a fitness fad, or a cup of coffee, people want you to commit to their brand. With all the noise it can be easy to lose sight of what we really need. Have you ever had that experience when you received something you’ve purchased and thought, “What was I thinking?” It happens to the best of us!

As a growing business leader, keeping focused on what you really need in the midst of all the static is crucial, especially when it comes to developing yourself. You have likely heard that Masterminds are a great way to grow your business by growing yourself.

The key is to ensure you invest in the mastermind you really need.

In my experience, the leaders who choose the best masterminds remember that there are only two factors that really matter. Stick with these and you can’t go wrong:

1. Getting a great facilitator

A top-notch facilitator designs,...

You. Your “Group of 5.” And the Right Mastermind for You.

Uncategorized Oct 15, 2019

There’s a saying by Motivational Speaker Jim Rohn,  that “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

Let that sink in.

The 5 people.

Now, name their names and consider their qualities. 

Perhaps you’re inspired.

Maybe you’re a little concerned!

My point is not to judge your friends but to have you take a second to consider the type of person you are, and the one you want to be.

Sometimes you need new relationships to get you there. Relationships to stretch and support you where you know you need to grow. 

These are masterminds.

Think of it as your “group of 5”  (or however many are in it!) that is committed to bringing out the best in you (and you, for the others). 

So, are you ready? Are you willing?

Women entrepreneurs ask this of themselves and to me all the time. 

It’s a great question and so let me quickly tell you what I tell those who want to grow and are curious about...

What is a Mastermind?

What is a mastermind?


When you start to learn about the habits of highly successful people, you hear them talk about belonging to a mastermind (or multiple masterminds). The concept of a mastermind has been around a long time. We know that many successful people were in one like Benjamin Franklin, Dale Carnegie, and many well known successful people today, such as Oprah, Lewis Howes, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet to name a few.


Napoleon Hill coined the word Mastermind in his classic book, Think and Grow Rich, by saying it is, “the coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also known as, the Mastermind.


Also, they are very different from group coaching where there is a "sage from the stage." In a mastermind group, not just...
