Why should you join a MasterMind?
I’ve been involved with Masterminds and startups for years now and I’ve been running mastermind groups for most of this year. Ex-Finance turned Entrepreneur, I love the mastermind formats and the tremendous value and growth that comes from them.
Each group we launch gets better and better. The group is highly curated and launched once we have a full group of 5 people. You can sign up to join the next mastermind or get more information here.
Before you join a MasterMind, one must better understand what it is and is not.
A MasterMind is NOT a silver bullet, quick fix that will solve all your business (or personal) woes. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
A MasterMind Group is a group of individuals that get together regularly and work together to problem solve each others’ most significant hurdles at that time.
Especially important when working on your own business, a MasterMind could be interesting as it won’t cost you any equity like other methods of getting startup help, and the benefits can be tremendous.
A good MasterMind Group is like having an entire unbiased group of advisors helping you think out your growing company’s (or idea’s) most significant struggles.
There is also an added benefit from providing value and helping other individuals in similar positions, hopefully learning from their difficulties prior to facing them yourself.
For me, I gain a lot of insight in to what others are focusing on, struggling with and working towards. This helps me with thinking through my own business plans.
Not everyone should join a MasterMind. Again, it’s not a quick fix. It’s for people that really want this. It’s for ambitious individuals that perhaps would benefit from some outside perspective.
I believe “entrepreneurial-minded” individuals should join a MasterMind. What does this mean? You have already started or would like to start your own business.
Don’t have a business yet but looking for a support group for inspiration to get started? Sure, but see my next paragraph. THEN, you’ll benefit a lot more from the sessions. Have a business and want to take it to the next level? Perfect. Want to expand your network to include entrepreneurs? Probably not for you. Although this is an added benefit of these groups, this should not be the only reason why you join.
If you are just starting a business, or have an idea that you’re still working on, that’s ok. Although a MasterMind would likely still be helpful at this phase, I’d suggest doing a few things prior to joining a MasterMind that will increase what you get out of a group like this.
Doing any/all of these will really help answer many of the initial questions and help you think through a lot of the processes with starting a business. By doing these before joining a MasterMind, you’ll have a much better idea of what questions you should be asking in the MasterMind meetings and get a lot more out of the sessions.
Our MasterMind Groups were created to create value. We’re learning and want feedback as we grow and evolve this (just like any small business).
