Who We Are

The success of every MyNetwork group each season truly stems from the connectivity and chemistry of the cohort and their commitment to engaging to heighten their sense of community.  Vital to the group’s connectivity and cohesion is the leadership of their facilitator and coach.

MyNetwork prides itself in the vast experience of our master facilitators and we want you to get a feel for who we are.

Amie Haar

Amie is the founder and practice leader of Emerge Consulting.  A Clifton Strengths coach, Amie loves helping others to find their true purpose through individual coaching, team facilitation, large group training and specializes in the areas of communication, relationship building, core business strategy and planning in the insurance industry space.  Amie is passionate about many things, including her faith, her family, the power of a good belly laugh, and the way in which the world can thrive by means of education (especially when it comes to ourselves!).

Bobby Shomo

Bobby is the founder and managing partner of Shomo-Madsen Insurance, headquartered in Marshalltown, Iowa with multiple location throughout the state.  At the helm of a long-running Best Practices multi-location agency, Bobby is keenly aware of what success looks like and how to get there!  Bobby is whole-heartedly devoted to teaching, coaching, and supporting the next generation of our industry out of his wellspring of experience and blessing. 

Sara Bradshaw Ray

As the founder of MyNetwork it goes without saying that Sara is evangelistic about the importance and great value of connecting and growing individuals in all facets of our profession.  Literally born in the business, this “agency brat” turned career veteran agency owner now management consultant, Sara brings a wealth of experience from the carrier, agency, and cluster sides of the insurance vertical and then some.

WHAT?

MyNetwork is a nationwide network of peer professional groups who meet monthly in a facilitated mastermind virtual meeting environment.  Meeting formats include learning rounds, challenge rounds, sharing rounds as well as 2 book discussion/workshops during each of the 8-month seasons.

WHY?

All transformationally-minded leaders know that they have to constantly be working to inspire and grow themselves long before they can inspire, grow and transform their organizations.  Impactful growth doesn’t take place near as quickly, comfortably or effectively as when you have other peer professionals to lean on and into.  MyNetwork brings together growth-oriented individuals in a powerful, synergist setting that raises everyone’s game with each interaction. 

WHERE?

We make our home in Oklahoma, though we provide a platform for nationwide networks that meet on a monthly basis through state-of-the-art video conferencing technology for virtual events and live-streaming simulcasts. 

 

When we’re not facilitating MyNetwork groups and creating content we also approved to provide Operational Improvement Reviews for the SwissRe Errors & Omissions risk management credit program and teach in the Agency Management institutes for The National Alliance, so travel is our friend if you need us onsite.

HOW?

Synergy: the outcome of a system greater than the sum of its parts.
