The idea of a mastermind group was first introduced by Napoleon Hill in his “Think and Grow Rich” book almost 100 years ago. But historically, mastermind groups have existed far longer. Some might go so far as to say that Jesus and his 12 disciples were the first such group. Why?
Because masterminds are based on the concept of gathering with others of like minds who want to grow and develop. Having a facilitator/leader to shepherd the group is important. From that leader, new ideas can be presented. The group then discusses, explores, and shares other ideas.
Together, the group learns from their peers. For small business owners, it makes sense because you can discover you are not alone in the journey to achieve business success. It is said it is lonely at the top. While that is true for any one business owner, why not gather with others just like you who also feel that unique kind of loneliness?
Joining a mastermind is one thing, but getting one started is something quite different.
In this episode, I am going to explore everything you need to know about starting a powerful, effective mastermind of your own. My guest is entrepreneur and successful group coach Chris Williams.
Chris’s Story in His Own Words:
I’m Chris. I spend most of my time raising our five kids, exploring world communities, and trying my hand at adventures like shark diving, ice climbing, running ultra marathons, and riding electric skateboards.
In my professional life, I work with entrepreneurial and business experts, speakers, coaches, and leaders helping them market, monetize, and lead their own high-ticket mastermind (or group coaching) programs.
As the world continues to shift, many experts are trying to build high-ticket groups for additional income, lead generation, or impact. I love, Love, LOVE teaching experts how to generate leads, close high-ticket deals, and build strong, transformational groups. I have my own digital agency, lead two masterminds of my own, and have learned many of these lessons the hard way, so sharing my journey and offering strategies to avoid the problems I had to overcome is why I’m here.
