What is a Mastermind Group?

<<The Mastermind Group ExperienceTM


Mastermind is a concept first introduced by Napoleon Hill nearly seventy years ago. He was the first author of the modern era to specifically study successful business people and then to find the commonalities for the purpose of educating other people about the elements necessary for success. He studied and interviewed such people as: Henry Ford, William Wrigley Jr., Charles Schwab, Theodore Roosevelt, William Jennings Bryan, King Gillette, John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, FW Woolworth, Clarence Darrow, Woodrow Wilson, William Taft, Alexander Graham Bell, and others.

One of the commonalities that he found among ALL of these great men was that they employed what he termed to be a “mastermind group,” that is, a group of people that they met with on a regular basis to help them to achieve their goals.

The reason that it works, according to Mr. Hill, is that “no two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” Basically – if you have a group of intelligent people who are working together for the same purpose – the combined power of your brains FAR outweighs the power of those same brains who are working alone! This is because your ideas – once bounced off of each other – produces ideas on TOP of ideas – as well as ideas for implementing actions to these ideas!


According to Mr. Hill: “Economic advantages may be created by any person who surrounds himself with the advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of a group of men who are willing to lend him wholehearted aid, in a spirit of perfect harmony. This form of cooperative alliance has been the basis of nearly every great fortune.”


Your Mastermind facilitator takes all of the basics of the mastermind group and then takes it to another level! Your Mastermind consists of three parts:

  • Brainstorming (the basis of a mastermind group), and

  • Accountability (turns brainstorming ideas into ACTIONS which you are accountable to the group to complete), and

  • Networking (the natural product of getting to know your fellow members very well – thereby providing opportunities to do business and refer each other).

While each of these elements individually may produce some results for you and your business, your Mastermind Group – by combining all three elements - provides incredible momentum that is certain to take you where you want to be!


Your Mastermind facilitator and fellow members are there to help you, trade experiences and ideas for overcoming your challenges, and hold you accountable to actually DOING what you need to do to reach your goals all in a non-judgmental and supportive environment.
