Like every woman I’ve ever met, I wear a lot of hats and it’s not always easy to swap one out for the other.

Masterminds may seem to be relatively new however the concept of a Mastermind can be traced back 75 years to Napolean Hill and his inspirational classic, Think and Grow Rich.
Napolean Hill describes the Mastermind principle as “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind…”
In more recent years, Masterminds have become increasingly popular as a way for new business owners to connect, learn and grow.
Owning an online business can feel isolating and overwhelming and I know in the past, being part of a mastermind and participating fully has allowed me to move beyond any negative mindset plus I’ve now grown two successful businesses in a relatively short amount of time.
But how do you know if a mastermind is the right next step for you?
Masterminds generally involve an application process so that the integrity of the group can be preserved and the dynamics are balanced. Once approved, you are usually given an opportunity to provide an intro and then hear what each of the members in the group is working on.
Once you join a mastermind, the connection opportunities are endless!
You become part of a community of like-minded individuals who might make recommendations, provide referrals, share an outside point of view you may not have considered previously, and more!
The connections I have made with fellow business owners while participating in masterminds has been so valuable to me and my business. I gained lifelong friends, loads of support and sometimes a dose of tough love when it was required.
With the connection and trust I gained from being involved in the group, I was able to scale my business to new heights and consider an even bigger picture for the future. I improved efficiencies, made new hires from recommended providers, and chased down my biggest dreams with confidence.
And the best part – Masterminds are private and confidential. Whatever is discussed within the group, stays in the group.
Let’s face it – as entrepreneurs and online business owners, we are always learning and running to stay ahead of the game – but we can’t know everything. This is where a mastermind group can provide loads of value.
By sharing collectively within the group, each member is able to expand their knowledge and understanding plus gain insights they may not have previously considered.
Dealing with a tough client?
Worried about low sales?
Needing ideas to boost lead generation? Ask the group!
Most likely someone in your group has gone through the exact same situation and can shortcut the process for you, preventing you from wasting time and energy on tactics that may not yield results.
In a well-structured mastermind, everyone involved has a unique skill set and area of expertise. This is intentional and forms the foundation of a strong mastermind.
The group collectively will become stronger and members have the benefit of being able to draw on the hive mind when faced with a challenge. Knowledge shares within the group may also consist of key takeaways from a workshop or event, article summaries, book reports – the sky is the limit!
A healthy and supportive mastermind actively encourages collaboration among the group members. This may be cross-promotional opportunities or the design of a brand new service or product line that brings together two previously unique businesses.
Masterminds can also provide a way of bringing someone into your business because they have the exact skill set you are looking for to help move your project to the next phase.
A healthy mastermind will encourage member collaboration and look for opportunities to make this happen. Whether its the sharing of skills, ideas, or opportunities – you will find some unique opportunities emerging that may be the ticket to reaching your next growth target.
In my experience, as both a participant and a host, masterminds have provided incredible opportunities for the members to connect, learn, grow and build their businesses fast!
