The unlimited power of a mastermind group
Few things can accelerate you toward your goals faster than participating in a mastermind.
What is it about the gathering of minds united in harmony that generates a level of mental stimulation which no single individual could experience alone?
If I asked you this question, you’d probably say that mastermind groups give people access to more information, provide support for projects, and hold members accountable. While that’s technically correct, it’s not the whole story.
It is true that the more people you have, the more information you’ll have access to; but results of mastermind alliances prove that they aren’t just a gathering of people to exchange ideas and offer knowledge. In fact, mastermind sessions often lead to results in a depth of knowledge no single person had access to before that interaction!
But the true power is this:
When a group of people come together in harmony to achieve a definite purpose, the increased mental prowess and capacity for intelligence created through this coordination becomes greater than the sum of the intelligence of the individual minds. This intelligence can be tapped into by any member of the group.
Just the act of being around such surroundings will totally change your game, and that of everyone around you. Your energy, your inspiration, your creativity – all of it rockets to a new level. By participating in the right mastermind group, you instantly become way smarter than you could ever be alone, even on your best day.
Success with masterminds
You will Increase the odds of success with regular meetings with others who encourage, motivate, and hold you accountable for doing the things that will help you reach your goals, whatever they are. My mastermind group is a consistent, structured, encouraging, business-like environment with peers to help you grow personally and professionally.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Why not choose those five people intentionally and surround yourself with others with common goals, aspirations, ambition, and work ethic as yourself?
Success isn’t accidental. It's intentional. To reach your goal, you have to plan to work, and work your plan. A group of like-minded people that will hold you accountable, encourage, and support you will help you reach your goals much faster than you would on your own.
Purpose of the mastermind group
“A friendly alliance of one or more people who will encourage you to follow through with both plans and purpose.” ~ Napoleon Hill

Focus of the branding and design mastermind group
You cannot have a business without marketing and promotions. You cannot have marketing and promotions without advertising. You cannot have advertising if you don't have an ad or a campaign. You cannot have an ad if you don't have a logo or a website to direct your customers. You cannot have a logo or a website if you don't hire a graphic or web designer or try to Design It Yourself (DIY). The bottom line is that to run a business requires graphic design. And to clarify graphic design is not just a pretty picture.
Slick tools and creative designs are only part of the puzzle; you still need to develop an eye for what works visually and what reflects your message. Our mastermind focus will be on design and branding because it IS the foundation of your business.
When I worked in an advertising agency the creative director would have a brainstorming session with the design team including the copywriter and we would all just toss out ideas. In this group, the strongest ideas usually came from the copywriter (the other voice part of your brand) but then the design team would take it from there and come up with the visual concept. In this group situation, came the most clever ideas because it's SO MUCH EASIER to come up with ideas and get things done in a group.
These meetings are essential especially to the solopreneur because without a group to bounce ideas off you waste a lot of time testing your concepts to your audience first instead of the other way around. Being on an island is hard. I know. I'm on that island a lot. A dream of mine is to have that same brainstorming session with a group of smart, like-minded individuals who understand branding, marketing, promotions and branding!
Andrew Carnegie—after examining the success habits of Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill of Think and Grow Rich fame became convinced that mastermind groups was the essential success factor for Carnegie’s success.

- Maximum of 5 members per group

- Accountability partners
- Support between meetings using Slack
- Groups meeting at different times – we will find a time that works for you!
Simple meeting frequency. Our group meets via Google Hangouts every Thursday afternoon or a time that works for everyone. Having a dedicated time each week works much better than trying to “find” a time to meet each week.
Simple online collaboration. As a group, we rarely use email. It’s just not an ideal collaboration tool. We will use Slack to communicate. This allows us to share ideas, articles, and questions any time during the week.
Our meeting has three essential components: sharing, advising, and accountability. I will act as facilitator (keeps track of time, keeps conversation on topic, directs the meeting, offers insight)
- 15 mins: Share progress and accomplishments from the previous week
- 30 mins: One member is in the "hot seat," which allows them to tap into the "master mind" of the group.
- 15 mins: Wrap up the meeting by sharing one high-leverage activity we want to be held accountable for.
A mastermind group is for you if you want:
- Increased profit
- New business ideas
- Collaboration with other entrepreneurs
- Brainstorming partners
- Focus and clarity on what you should be doing now
- Better decision making for your brand, marketing and promotions
- Support from high-achievers (just like you) who are ready to invest in their brand
