Devouring the Thoughts of Others

It’s not secret that one of the secrets to success is being well read.

You find a lot of people who might knock an education, offering their opinion as to how they got to where they got in life with out one or making fun of those who have one who are still idiots.

There is a lot of data out there though that is indisputable, the more education you have the higher the probability that you will be financially successful. A college degree is worth a lot more in potential earnings than a high school diploma.

But I digress, the point I started to make is that you have to read a lot. One of the indisputable benefits of a college education is you have to read a lot and read a lot of things you might not normally have read. This broadens you.

I read a lot. Like a book a week at least. And I am always reading stuff online. You can never stuff enough knowledge and wisdom in your brain. It’s impossible to fill.

So where attention goes (to being well read), energy flows (you get all kinds of new ideas), and results show (you make a lot less mistakes and errors in judgement).

And that is why I read a lot. Thanks T. Have Eker for proving my point which proves your point.

Keep Yourself Accountable

The best way to ensure you are focusing on results is to have accountability partners. One knowledgeable about your industry and your vision. A mastermind is the best way to surround your self with people who can help you stay on point. They should be like a board of advisors. This concept ad part of a Mastermind group, was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill.

In his book “Think and Grow Rich“, Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also known as, the Mastermind.

You should be part of a mastermind where you are helping other business minded individuals level up their businesses. You should also be part of a mastermind where you are amongst your peers, other business people at your level facing similar challenges. And finally, you should be part of a virtual mastermind with other leaders in your niche.

If you own or are thinking of owning your own business, you need to learn specifically what it takes to build an even more successful company, connect with other like-minded business owners, and discover new ways to create revenue streams!

We will show you how to use the latest technology to build even more leads, sales & streams of income! If you aren’t already thinking about how to use things like chatbots, auto responders and artificial intelligence to grow a business, you are way behind the curve. We specialize in teaching great concepts on how to become an inspiring leader, utilize great systems and become 100% laser focused!

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, I’ve had enough experience with masterminds to know what makes them work and what doesn’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 hadn’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 I’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

𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐧: 𝐉𝐚𝐧𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐲 𝟏𝟐, 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟎 ( 𝐒𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐲)
𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐓𝐢𝐦𝐞: 𝟏𝐩𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝟒𝐩𝐦
𝐖𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐞: 𝐖𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐭𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐜.
𝟐𝐧𝐝 𝐟𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐫, 𝐁𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐂, 𝐌𝐞𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐱, 𝐌𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐜𝐨 𝐀𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐮𝐞, 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐢𝐠 𝐂𝐢𝐭y

Then on Monday I’ll be in Makati @ Warehouse 8 for the next Vision to Wealth meet up.

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 — Makati

“I 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.”

Vision to Wealth — Ortigas

“I would like to thank you for such a paradigm shifting night for me.”

Making a Mastermind Successful — Part 2

At this point in my career, I’ve had enough experience with masterminds to know what makes them work and what doesn’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, I’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 it’s a business mastermind forged out of everything that came before it and everyone that contributed (good & bad) to getting me to where I’m now at… the sweet spot.

I’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, it’s a concept akin to the “crab mentality”.

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 hadn’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.

So to help me build my first mastermind in the Philippines I’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.

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

So to summarize my point… 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.

You Should Be In 3 Masterminds

This is key for being successful in today’s information age. You need to part of not just one mastermind, but three.

The concept of a Mastermind group was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill.

In his book “Think and Grow Rich“, Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony…no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also known as, the Mastermind.

You should be part of a mastermind where you are helping other business minded individuals level up their businesses. You should also be part of a mastermind where you are amongst your peers, other business people at your level facing similar challenges. And finally, you should be part of a virtual mastermind with other leaders in your niche.

If you own or are thinking of owning your own business, you need to learn specifically what it takes to build an even more successful company, connect with other like-minded business owners, and discover new ways to create revenue streams!

We will show you how to use the latest technology to build even more leads, sales & streams of income!

Based on the mastermind idea championed by Napoleon Hill in his book, Think & Grow Rich, Our Mastermind Series brings professionals together to share best practices, brainstorm new approaches and helping each of us get outside our box.

Starting up a new business can be incredibly difficult. After all, it takes a lot more than a great idea and a pocket full of dreams in order to disrupt markets and generate success.

New entrepreneurs need access to capital, mentoring and structural resources in order to prosper. But sometimes those lifelines seem nearly impossible to track down — which is why nine out of ten startups shrivel up and die within three years.

Business Accelerators are designed to prevent those premature deaths. At this meeting we will discuss how to find the right business accelerator for your small business.

Schedule:
7:00pm-7:30pm – Networking Session with Mastermind Members

Why Manila Needs A Quantum Mastermind

Per wikipedia, a mastermind groupis 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 Hillin his book The Law of Success, and described in more detail in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. In his books, Hill discussed the idea of the Master Mind, which referred to two or more people coming together in harmony to solve problems.

I had never really heard of the this concept until I met Bill Walsh, America’s Small Business Expert at a Small Business Expo a few months ago. Meeting Bill was a game changer.

After listening to Bill talk to a group of entrepreneurs and small business owners for 45 minutes, I was shocked to see I had made 4 pages of notes. I immediately signed up to lead a mastermind in Orlando, Florida as I was in the early stages of expanding my business to the Sunshine State.

This is a big deal for me because as a data guy, I tend to execute my business decisions after pretty thorough analysis. But I saw an opportunity and I went for it. I had my first mastermind meeting after 45 days of planning and was successful in bringing together an initial groups of liked mind professionals committed to raising their game through collaboration and mind share.

And then it occurred to me, that if Masterminds are being successfully implemented across the U.S.. why not the Philippines?

Having devoted a huge % of the last decade to leading a charge to upskill the analytics talent in the Philippines, I should be doing the same with a mastermind.

The upward trajectory of small business and entrepreneurship in the Philippines continues to quicken. And in all my years training people to use analytics, I have worked with thousands of Filipinos working for small businesses or themselves looking to be more competitive. Analytics is a big part of leveling up your business. They’re are a lot more pieces to the puzzle of business success, but it occurred to me there was one key one missing.

Masterminds.

I learned back in 2011, that when it comes to economic opportunity in the Philippines, the sky is the limit. My adopted home is a land of almost unlimited potetnial.

So in partnership with Bill Walsh and Powerteam International I will be launching a series of Quantum Mastermind’s in Metro Manila and across the Philippines.
