What is a Mastermind?

Napoleon Hill wrote about the mastermind group principle in Think and Grow Rich and defined it as: “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”

The definition of a mastermind group is straightforward: a group of peers who meet to give each other advice and support. It’s similar to mentoring, but has several important differences. First, it will have five or six members, instead of being a one-on-one meeting. In a mastermind group, you will both give and receive advice, while in a mentorship, you’ll typically be on the receiving end.

Mastermind groups can also involve brainstorming, educational presentations and even discussing personal issues. So what is a mastermind group really? It is a “meeting of the minds” in every sense – a place where you can speak the truth and expect it in return.

Benefits of a Mastermind:

The benefits of mastermind groups are vast. In the best groups, members hold each other accountable for their goals – driving each other to reach the highest levels of success. The most important answer to the question, “What is a mastermind group?” is that it’s a resource you can tap into for support, advice and celebration. Mastermind groups are a supportive community that celebrate your successes and understand your failures. They always encourage you to get back up again, and when you do achieve a goal, they’ll be there to celebrate your success. 

This mastermind goes one step further. Beyond the benefits of a standard mastermind, the Business Builders will partner you with another Builder to form a mentor and mentee relationship. This will help you learn how to market and sell to that younger demographic or help you learn from an executive that has successfully been in business for years. 

Build Your Network

A quality mastermind group will allow you to leverage the power of proximity to elevate your own life. You’ll be around other driven businesspeople who will energize you to go after your goals. Mastermind groups also share business contacts and provide recommendations and references – a big help if you’re just starting out.

Share Your Ideas

Whether you’re thinking about starting a business, want to grow your existing one or are starting to think about your exit strategy, this group will be the place where you can share your ideas and get feedback. The Business Builders will brainstorm with you, provide a different perspective and “poke holes” in your strategies that you may not have thought of yet.

Elevate Your Skills

An ideal mastermind group brings together businesspeople at different levels of success and with different strengths and weaknesses. This way, each member can lend their strengths to other members of the group and work on their weaknesses. Mastermind groups will help you question your limiting beliefs, face your fears and challenge you to do better, every day.
