Brittany added, “We’ve learned the importance of surrounding yourself with people who support you, but we also learned to take the negative energy into our racecars and use it to win races. You have to block out any negative images and visualize the positive outcome. Empowered women empower other women, so we always support other female racers---unless they’re in the lane next to us!”

The Force sisters discussed growing up in the racing industry and shared many of their experiences, including victories as well as crashes. 

Courtney admitted, “We recognize that it’s a dangerous sport, but you have to put faith in your car, your team and yourself. Our family is competitive but supportive of each other, and Dad always reminds us to drive from the heart before every run.” 

The Force sisters graciously invited a group of WIN conference attendees to tour their nearby facility the following day. 

During lunch, Ben Komenkul presented “Traveling the World with Your Family for Free: The Secret Primer to Award Travel,” discussing three types of loyalty programs, how to redeem points for free travel and the best bonuses to capitalize upon. Schroeder thanked bronze sponsors before the group separated to choose two of three breakout sessions on Tuesday afternoon. 

Brad Mewes, business advisor for Supplement Advisory LLC, presented “Mastermind Groups, Budgeting and Goal-Setting.” Focusing on the importance of a business philosophy and system that drives growth, Mewes emphasized the importance of investment.

Describing the Mastermind System, he stated, “If the owner wants a better business, first the business needs a better owner,” going on to explain that a Mastermind is a meeting of highly motivated folks who share a common goal and want to help and encourage one another to improve. The Mastermind System includes a financial dashboard, goal-setting and execution, and three annual in-person meetings. The system provides accountability, methodology, experience, behavior change, measurement and a tribe of other business owners that understand your challenges.
