The term “Mastermind” has been around for ages, but was originally coined by Napoleon Hill in his book Think and Grow Rich…one of my favorites. A mastermind is “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.” Its purpose is to foster the sharing of ideas and intelligence in order to brainstorm, solve problems, and ultimately come up with solutions. It is an avenue to not only engage with other like minded individuals who share your beliefs, passions, and interests, but also a way to surround yourself with immense knowledge and ENHANCE your array of thought. It may even be a way to find a MENTOR, INVESTOR, or BUSINESS PARTNER.
According to a Forbes article, there are many reasons why joining a Mastermind is beneficial:
- A community of exclusivity.
- Advisement, mentorship, and peer to peer company.
- Network extension.
- Learning opportunities.
- Business expansion.
- Personal development.
You can always start your own Mastermind with people around you, friends, family, or colleagues. However, the benefit of a Mastermind these days is you don’t have to be in physical proximity to still share ideas. Gain access to limitless amounts of people by putting your Mastermind on the web.
