How to Log into BizSugar Sharing and the New BizSugar Mastermind Group

We want to welcome all our existing and new BizSugar sharing platform members and also new members to our new BizSugar Mastermind group.

    • Hi Philip,

      I’m so glad you finally got in ok. We’ll be talking about the Sharing Community this week in the Mastermind Community.

      So I hope you’ll pop in and interact with new members. Maybe you can share in the comments of the Mastermind Community one of your favorite links from BizSugar Sharing.

  • Congratulations. Well done on setting this up..

      If you’re still having trouble, please do contact me on Skype (username growmap) or LinkedIn or Facebook or email me at community@ this domain.

  • I love bizsugar but I haven’t been able to get in to share for an age! I have sent you emails etc but I just cannot get in.. please help or let me know when you’ll be addressing access issues..thanks.

  • I have followed all the above mentioned steps to register my driving school Wellingborough business so can share stories and articles but can’t login? Any help with that.

    • Hello Rasyid,

      No, there is no charge for any part of BizSugar. Using the resources on the main site, the sharing platform and participating in the Mastermind Community are all totally free.

    • Hello Escale Solutions,

      The BizSugar Mastermind Community is a mastermind group. Only admin can start new conversations because we want to keep all the details on a particular topic in one discussion.

      If you’ve been a member of a regular forum, I’m sure you’ve noticed that they all end up with splintered conversations with redundant and outdated information spread all over the place.

      We control that by having only one discussion on a topic and keeping it updated with current information. If there is a particular small business related topic you want to discuss, just ask me and I’ll create it.

    • Hi Maya,

      Only posts that are related to small business and the people who provide them services will be approved. Adult content is definitely never going to get approved.

    • Hi Rejeena,

      Members are encouraged to participate in existing discussion in the Mastermind Community. They do not have access to just publish whatever they wish for two reasons:

      1) It would generate an incredible amount of spam.
      2) Most forums end up with fragmented discussions.

      To provide value to members, we want all the discussion on a particular topic to be in one place.
