About Mastermind Events

A Mastermind is a small group of peers who share similar interests and goals and meet on a regular basis. The purpose of their meetings is to discuss an issue or problem members are facing, find answers, and help each other succeed.

The group functions as your Board of Directors. Different strengths, wisdom, and experience of the members allows you to brainstorm, support, and advise each other. As part of this alliance, everyone becomes smarter and empowered by the synergy created.

“This process, called masterminding, is one of the most powerful tools for success presented in this book (The Success Principles). I don’t know anybody who has become super successful who has not employed the principle of masterminding.” ˜ The Success Principles – Jack Canfield

Members who submit questions have a chance to be in the “hot seat”. The hot seat participant brings up an issue and explains what help they need. The other members ask questions, delve deeper into a problem, brainstorm ideas and offer a solution.
