[50 ROCKS: CARING] What is a Mastermind…and why should you care?

People understand what a motivational speaker does. And what and author does. But today someone asked what I do as a success coach–especially what goes on inside of my private mastermind group.

If it helps at all, The Rock On Success mastermind group turned a year old in August. I started it as a coaching program to complement my book and deliver the 90-day success system (but found that folks liked saving money and locking in a longer commitment). They grew to really value the relationships within our sacred space. It’s a place where folks care deeply about your success WITHOUT the emotional attachment and associated baggage.

The small group is a mix of corporate and nonprofit leaders, strategic sales execs, entrepreneurs … all looking to have a sounding board for growing business in a way that honors their values, their core strengths, their families, and their “me time.”

It’s not inexpensive, but rather it’s meant to be a higher level of personal Board of Directors for the people involved. It’s funny because they’re kicking butt and driving crazy results.

Listening to them on our zoom Meetup today, they started describing it as their “sacred space where business strategy, strategic sales, spirituality, accountability, group therapy and a personal advisory council intersect.

I’m gonna start using their language because it’s a unique, scared place where high performing “go-givers” Meetup via zoom 2x per month where each person gets their turn in the “hot seat” to focus on their wins, challenges and focus topic they need help with that session.

We then host quarterly in-person events and now retreats. We hosted a small group intensive in Myrtle Beach in November. Here’s where @Donna DiMartino got super clear on her why, her gifts to the world… and we literally watched her experience a QUANTUM LEAP in how she tells her story. Check her video out here...so proud of you Donna!

I originally thought the content was key as they’re taught modules on rocking your strength, focus, action planning, marketing, sales, environment, confidence and money mindset. That stuff flows easily from my 30 years of entrepreneurial marketing, agency and biz development.

But they are also so committed to supporting each other, active mentoring and referrals that there is power and explosive growth.

Even when setbacks happen, they have the power to face their sadness or fear or frustration and quickly move past it.

Today one said that before the mastermind she would “give up” and fret over what did not happen (a scarcity mindset). Now she values “letting go” to what is not meant to be. Instead she leads from a place of gratitude and abundance, knowing that we often must make space for what will serve us better.

So while a mastermind can sometimes get tactical, it’s more of an enduring center of excellence where folks grow smarter, fail faster thanks to shared learning.

It’s evolving … and so are we.

Read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich and see how Henry Ford maximized his contributions to the world, thanks to his Vagabond Mastermind. It works. Period.
