We’ve all heard the phrase “two minds are better than one,” and it’s so true. This is the beauty of joining a Mastermind. I mean, seriously, there’s so much power there. (I’ll even share some of my own experiences with Masterminds in this episode). From support and inspiration to advice and accountability, the benefits can help propel you in the direction of some of your biggest goals. You have opportunities to learn, grow, and really just level up your business.
“There’s a lot of people out there who start businesses and maybe you’re one of them and your family and friends don’t actually understand what it is that you’re doing. And so being a part of a group that does get what you want to do is really important and it’s essential to your development.” -Emily Williams
And I want that for you. But I get it and know that it can be a little intimidating to choose a Mastermind when there are so many options out there (I’ve been there!). Masterminds come in all shapes and sizes, so it can be a little overwhelming to figure out which one is right for you. Trust me, I can assure you that taking the time to get clarity and figure this out is so important before making the investment with your time and money.
Some Masterminds more structured, step-by-step learning experiences, others are more focused around networking, and others that are more just support-style groups. Regardless of the type of Mastermind you ultimately choose, you want to be sure it is the right fit for you. So, in this episode, I give you three things to think about before committing to any program, group, or coaching experience you are considering to help you learn, grow, and level up!
First, I talk about why it’s so important to be able to really look at the leader of the Mastermind with admiration. You also need to really know what you want to get out of the group and that’s why I explain why knowing the coach isn’t quite enough. You want to really understand more about the other participants (How many are there? What types of people are they?). Last (but certainly not least) you have to know if the program has the ability to help you get the results you desire.
Keeping that last one in mind, I also touch upon a little myth that Masterminds are a magic pill for success. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people who join Masterminds with this expectation. And, yes, I can tell you from experience as both a member and leader of Masterminds, they truly can transform you. BUT you have to be ready and willing to show up. And honestly, if you’re not willing or ready to do that, do yourself a favor and save your money.
But, if you are ready to level up your business and step into the next chapter of your success story, do your research and take action. I hope this episode will help you do so with clarity.
