The Power of the Mastermind

As I hit the half way point of my latest trip to the Philippines, I have had the honor of delivering 3 of the 6 planned talks I have scheduled on the power of the mastermind.

At this point in my career, Iโ€™ve had enough experience with masterminds to know what makes them work and what doesnโ€™t.

If you are surrounded by people whose only goal is to keep everyone down in the miserable place they are, you will fail. Stop taking advice from people who are never gonna be as successful as you plan to be. You need to leave them behind and get signed up to be part of a business mastermind.

Now as a recap for those who hadnโ€™t heard of the term business mastermind before, a mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring concept used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other group members.

The concept was coined in 1925 by author Napoleon Hill described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. Find the book, the audiotape or do a google search. If you truly want to Think and Grow Rich, it all starts here!

So to help me build my first mastermind in the Philippines Iโ€™m looking for Filipinos from a certain mold. These are exactly the kind of people you will meet at my talks.

I will be giving a talk on Sunday to an audience of mostly accountants, bookkeepers and financial experts at the NETWORK, LEARN AND HAVE FUN

And finally at our 3rd Vision to Wealth meet up in BGC on Wednesday.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/82519206167

The goal at these events is not just to sign them up to be in my mastermind, but to get each one to a point where they can run their own mastermind as well.

Finally want to share feedback from a couple of recent events, where I had a chance to share my story, talk about masterminds and build a team of like minded entrepreneurs who are ready to level up.

A.I. for Marketing โ€” Makati

โ€œI had so many Aha moments and insights from the Mastermind event, I felt I need to google the words I took some notes during the discussion.โ€

Vision to Wealth โ€” Ortigas

โ€œI would like to thank you for such a paradigm shifting night for me.โ€

Making a Mastermind Successfulโ€Šโ€” Part 2

At this point in my career, Iโ€™ve had enough experience with masterminds to know what makes them work and what doesnโ€™t. As we launch Mastermind PH next week, I want to make sure everyone who signs up is signing up for the right reasons.

Having spent most of the past decade doing business in the Philippines, Iโ€™ve got volumes of experience to draw on.

Mastermind PH marks my 7th business venture in my adopted country since 2011. The first one failed spectacularly, the next two based on learning the ropes through hard knocks did ok. But by the 4th go around I got the formula right and enjoyed massive success.

So lucky #7 will have every reason to succeed. Why do I feel so confident? Because itโ€™s a business mastermind forged out of everything that came before it and everyone that contributed (good & bad) to getting me to where Iโ€™m now atโ€ฆ the sweet spot.

Iโ€™m also in the right place at the right time. A lot of great ideas and business plans here in the Philippines misfire because of not being in the right place at the right time. Over the years spent here, having worked with the hundreds of businesses and the thousands of Filipinos in my circle, the biggest challenge to success I see is the broke brother in law concept. If you are Filipino, itโ€™s a concept akin to the โ€œcrab mentalityโ€.

If you are surrounded by people whose only goal is to keep everyone down in the miserable place they are, you will fail. Stop taking advice from people who are never gonna be as successful as you plan to be. You need to leave them behind and get signed up to be part of a business mastermind.

Now as a recap for those who hadnโ€™t heard of the term business mastermind before, a mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring concept used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other group members.

The concept was coined in 1925 by author Napoleon Hill described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. Find the book, the audiotape or do a google search. If you truly want to Think and Grow Rich, it all starts here!

So to help me build my first mastermind in the Philippines Iโ€™m looking for Filipinos from a certain mold. The goal is not just to sign them up to be in my mastermind, but to get each one to a point where they can run their own mastermind as well.

Iโ€™ve learned from two of the best in the business, Bill Walsh & Michael Silvers. Iโ€™ve set up a couple of masterminds in Central Florida. I know Napoleon Hills concept down. And Iโ€™m part of one of the biggest, baddest, most accomplished mastermind groups out there, Powerteam Internationalโ€™s Win Global Mastermind.

So to summarize my pointโ€ฆ the 3 biggest reasons I know Mastermind PH will be a huge success; adaptability, market awareness and being surrounded by people who make me better.
