A Mastermind is a group of like-minded individuals with similar goals, who meet regularly in person or by phone to support each other in manifesting personal and professional success. Members commit to attending group sessions, and participate by sharing stories and information while “holding space” for the transformative growth of each individual. The concept was popularized by Napoleon Hill, the author of “Think and Grow Rich.” He said: “No two minds ever come together without a third invisible force, which may be likened to a “third mind.”
A synergistic Mastermind group uses the “collective super intelligence” supplying the group with guidance, creative ideas, positive support, honest feedback and accountability in reaching professional and economic goals. The result is that the generative power of the group far exceeds that of each individual.
Joining Masterminds is a great way to be part of the NAWBO SB community and get to know other local women business owners.
Here are some great questions to ask yourself—Masterminds can help you find the answers!
Meetings are confidential: Confidentiality is important to generate the full potential of the group, which encourages members to share freely, and group members will be asked to sign confidentiality agreements.
Non-compete clause: Individual group members will have the choice whether or not to allow a new member that may be considered in competition in a similar profession or trade, so that the group can maintain success with confidence and privacy. The first member in each profession to join the group and pay dues has the right to request a competing member form a new group.
Let your alliance grow—Networking is important to support each other: One outstanding characteristic of our Mastermind groups are that they will automatically attract people who are in harmony with the group’s purpose. Each Mastermind group has a distinct focus, as individuals in different stages of business have different needs.
