So what is this thing called a mastermind group. When you look it up on the net which I am sure you have, you will undoubtedly get a definition that starts with the quote from the Napolean Hill book “Think and Grow Rich.” This has been sighted by many as the beginning of all the rage around master mind groups in recent years.
He wrote about his experience from Andrew Carnegie who requested his services and we know what Mr. Carnegie accomplished.
I like to suggest that mastermind groups have been around for centuries if we just recognize the intent and formations. Another quote comes to mind “When two or three are gathered in my name, there I am with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
I also imagine that peoples from time immemorial have been masterminding with each other. They sat together and played board games, had quilting circles, socialized at tea parties, joined cigar smoking clubs, hung out in men’s groups, shared in women/sister circles, rejuvenated in sweat lodges, and more. All to support, council, guide and help each other. This is collaborative problem solving at its best.
So putting this all together simply, a master mind group is like-minded people working together for the success of each member. This is a very powerful medium.
There are many focuses that are the interests of master mind groups: solopreneurs, first time business owners, women in small business, people seeking to launch a business etc. What type of group do you want to belong to? Are you ready for a team effect?
