Maximize Your Success with a MastermindFeb 06, 2024
This is something I didn’t learn about until I was in my 40’s and wish I’d discovered years earlier that can really bless you and get you to where you want to be in any area of life much faster.
It’s top of mind today because of where we are and what we are doing this week…
Today is day #2 of a phenomenal mastermind event that Nicole and I are attending here in Las Vegas together. We joined this industry-focused mastermind last October, and we have benefited from it in more ways that we can describe.
This mastermind is specific to our social marketing e-commerce business and made up of the best in our industry (personal incomes from each person’s e-commerce business range from $250k - $10,000,000 per year), so there is a lot of energy, positivity, and experience in the room.
Although we all meet on Zoom for one hour every other week, we meet in person here at Eric Worre’s Studio three times each year for two full days each time. It’s not a small annual investment but after only 4 months of being a part of it, we have received more value than the annual fee we’ve paid, and that is saying a lot.
So what is a mastermind, how does it work, and how can it benefit your life?
Mastermind groups are essentially teamwork on steroids, designed for those who are serious about achieving their goals, whether it's launching a new business, growing an existing one, or personal development like improving health or learning new skills.
The focus can be anything, and no doubt you can likely find a mastermind for any niche you may desire.
Picture a room (or a virtual space like Zoom) where everyone is as invested in your success as you are in theirs. This is where the magic of masterminding lies.
Here's how it works in practice: You meet regularly with your group—each person brings their unique skills, experiences, and contacts to the table. Say you're struggling with a marketing strategy for your startup.
In a mastermind session, you could present your challenge, and then each member would brainstorm solutions, share what's worked for them, or connect you with someone in their network who can help.
It's collaborative problem-solving at its best.
The benefits are tangible. For starters, you're more likely to stick to your goals because you're not just accountable to yourself; you've got a group expecting you to report back on your progress. It's a powerful motivator.
You also get to tap into the collective brainpower of the group, which means you can leverage diverse insights and experiences you might not have access to on your own. This can lead to breakthrough ideas and shortcuts to your goals.
Networking is another big win. These aren't just any connections; they're deep, meaningful relationships with people who are likely to be highly motivated and successful in their fields. These can lead to opportunities you couldn't have found on your own.
In essence, being part of a mastermind group means you're never alone in your endeavors. You have a team of cheerleaders, advisors, and potential collaborators who are all pulling for you to succeed—and you for them. It's about turning individual ambition into a collective powerhouse of success.
I am part of three masterminds currently…the industry specific one mentioned above, one that Nicole and I lead within our own organization, and a men’s only mastermind that I am part of that includes men from various professions (a medical doctor, owner of a marketing agency, owner of a truss company, owner of Amazon stores, Oral Surgeon, etc.) that is focused on the holistic man…christian faith, family, health, business, and finances.
I can’t overhype the benefits of being a part of a mastermind. Don’t let another year pass without joining one, or start your own if you must.
As always, if I can be of help, please feel free to reach out. I am always happy to share what I do, who I may know that can help, and what I do not know.
