Keystone Mastermind Buys HEC Network

Posted By LocalShops1, Sunday, January 28, 2018


ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Liz M. Lopez and Tracie Thompson, founders of the business mastermind and coaching group Keystone Mastermind Alliance, announced their purchase of the HEC Network on January 15.


Both organizations are success stories: Keystone Mastermind Alliance, founded in 2014, and HEC Network, founded in 2015, have both enjoyed vigorous growth in Pinellas County.


“Tracie and I were the first two members of the HEC Network,” said Lopez in announcing the acquisition. “Mark Drucker often told the story that I wrote the HEC business plan, while Tracie was the angel whispering in his ear. Mark has accepted an opportunity to represent five food lines
across the United States, requiring extensive travel. To ensure that the members of the HEC Network continue to thrive and that the organization gets the attention it needs and deserves, Mark chose to sell. It seemed like a natural evolution to bring his two-hundred- plus members and seven chapters into our organization.”


Thompson emphasized that this acquisition offers members of the former HEC Network a powerful opportunity to continue to enjoy what they love about HEC, while benefitting from the strengths and added value of the established mastermind and coaching features that the Keystone
Mastermind Alliance offers.


As part of this transition, members have immediate access to all monthly Business Brainstorming events at no additional cost, as well as preferred rates to workshops, mastermind groups, and conferences already scheduled by Keystone.
“The HEC Network was always more than a business network,” remarked Lopez. “It was an adventure, a place to be yourself and be supported as a business owner and as a community member.  Our vision is for the KMA Network to keep that spirit and to be a diverse community of
business owners and entrepreneurs achieving more together.”
Guests are welcome to visit a meeting and experience the KMA Network’s unique approach to business networking. To learn more about the new KMA Network and to find a schedule of events, visit the organization’s website at .
