A trio of session planning resourcesAs the mercury rises with the summer heat, I’ve been looking for ways to stay cool. Staying inside with the AC cranked, I’ve been spending a little extra time online. The fall out of that is a trio of cool session planning resources for you. A website, a group to form and forum to join will help you keep your cool as you plan your sessions.

Cool resource #1: Songfacts

Songfacts has information on artists and some tunes. This makes it a nice site for finding facts to share, creating trivia, or just learning more about an artist or a song. You can also find songs by categories.  This resource serves as starting point in some of my planning.

Cool resource #2: Create a mastermind group

So much can be said about the role of mastermind groups, I’m planning a series on them at a later date. But, I want you to start benefitting from them now.

As a solo-preneur living rural, my mastermind support groups are an important resource on many fronts included my session planning. Though the others in my groups are in very different communities, we all agree our mastermind groups have been powerful for our work and our businesses.

Whether you do this in real life or virtually, finding one or 2 people and create a Mastermind Group.

Napoleon Hill spoke about the principle of mastermind in his book “Think And Grow Rich”. He saw them as:

“The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”

There is much to be gained by gathering with others having similar interests or goals.

“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

Cool resource #3: Music Sparks Community Forum

It is exciting to share with other caregivers who engage and connect with others through the use of music. So I decided to gather a diverse group. Some members will be family members while others will be healthcare professionals. Some will interact with older adults, some with young children and a few will enjoy mixing the generations.

This group is about connection and community, not spam or promos. You may ask questions, and we will do our best to answer them. Caregiving is hard, challenging work. While we all need to vent from time to time, this is a support group rather than a therapy group. We become better caregivers by searching for answers, asking great questions and exploring how to tweak things.

Check out the guidelines here then ask to be added to this group.

I hope you enjoy these cool session planning resources and hop onto the forum.
