Internet Marketing Mastermind Groups – Wealthy Affiliate



Mastermind GroupAnyone who has read Napoleon Hill’s famous book “Think and Grow Rich” will know that in the book Mr Hill places great emphasis on finding and forming a mastermind group for any sort of business enterprise.


What Is A Mastermind Group?

Basically a mastermind group is a collective of people with varying skill sets that all have a common purpose or focus.

If you do some research on famous business people you will find that most (if not all) had surrounded themselves with some form of mastermind group. Let’s face it, while we all have a brain and have some talents and skills, we don’t know everything and can’t be good at everything. Even an employer‘s employees are kind of like a mastermind group, performing different functions that either the employer has no time to do, or does not have the skill to perform.

More specifically, though, a mastermind group is a collection of people that brainstorm ideas and come up with solutions to problems in order to achieve a common goal. The members might all be equal business partners, or they could be company executives that gather together regularly for meetings on the direction of the business and how to improve it.

When we go into business, no matter how big or small, we all need the support, advice, ideas and problem solving skills of others if we are truly going to succeed. We all should have a mastermind group whether we are working online or offline. It’s a vital component to both business and personal success.

Find Your Mastermind Group 

Find Or Form Your Mastermind Group

Now that we have some idea of what a mastermind group actually is, we now have to either go out and find an existing mastermind group or form our own.

If you are forming your own group then it’s important to think about the people you want in that group. If you invite friends into the group just because of familiarity, be sure that friend offers something really positive to the group. If they tend to be a negative person they are not going to be a good fit for your mastermind group. Likewise you want to avoid serial procrastinators, people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk, lazy people and obstinate people. Really anything you see as a major negative that would not contribute positively to the group.

Here is a list of important points to look for in potential members of your group:

  • Positive attitude
  • Go getters
  • Support the common goal or idea
  • Have relevant skills to offer
  • Switched on mentally
  • Don’t fear constructive criticism
  • Willing to express ideas openly
  • A willingness to share the credit for successes
  • Are motivated and focused
  • Are passionate about the business
  • Success-driven
  • Reliable and punctual
  • Loyal
  • Unselfish and helpful

If you are starting an online business (and I presume you are as you are reading this website), then you might be able to find a ready-made mastermind group online that is relevant to your business or niche. The internet is full of groups and forums, many of which can serve as your own personal network to form your mastermind group.

The beauty of the internet is that it brings people together from all over the world into pockets of like-minded individuals all chasing a common goal or dream.

I’ve found my mastermind group online, and I’ll tell you about it below.
