I’m flying out tomorrow for a week-long Mastermind. Why do this? Imagine having 14-25 other like-minded entrepreneurs as your own personal Board of Directors-dedicated to helping grow your business and help solve one of the problems you may encounter.And you are this sounding board and “Board of Directors” for them. It’s a great feeling to brainstorm ideas to help one another. Very powerful. I get to participate in this process all week!
Napoleon Hill, in “Think & Grow Rich” described the mastermind concept as when 2 or more individuals come together for the same purpose. This expert studied successful men, it was in the thirties…He determined that those who participated in a Mastermind plus other aspects outlined in his book were more successful businessmen/entrepreneurs.
He, himself, was in a Mastermind with leading entrepreneurs of his day. Andrew Carnegie of US Steel and Charles Schwab were in Napoleon Hill’s Mastermind.
Think 2 heads are better than one…or the whole is greater than the sum of its parts…This describes the “think-tank” that is a Mastermind group. Success Resources sponsors this Global Mastermind and about 27 people are converging on Martha’s Vineyard. We always go to nice places only three times a year + a weekly call and an active Facebook group. You can meet anywhere-your local coffee shop or someone’s conference room.
I’ve created a completely virtual one. Check it out at http://www.momentummastermindgroups.com
