WIC Mastermind Groups

Joining a Mastermind Group might be the smartest, most effective step you take in your business. Who doesn’t want a personal board of directors, a group of colleagues with your best interest in mind? Smart. Inspiring. Practical.

You are not going to develop all the skills you need to run a successful business by sitting at your desk brainstorming (by yourself?!? What?) or by reading the top business books. You just don’t have that kind of time. Why not learn from others who have already been through the pain and agony of building a business or from those who are in the painful-but-exciting throes of the building process, just as you are.

A Mastermind group is a small group of peers who share similar interests and goals on a regular basis through video conferencing or face-to-face meetings. Participants identify, discuss and solve issues that are occurring in the operation of their businesses. Your designated group members will have your best interest at heart and share in the trials and celebrations of running your business. Bringing together small groups of like-minded people, entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, freelancers, bloggers and business owners for discussion and support helps each member overcome problems and obstacles, allowing for faster and more effective growth of her business as well as receive encouragement to reach higher and achieve more.

Key benefits of joining a Mastermind Group include:

  • Insight
    • Receiving a new way to think about issues from people you trust.
  • Networking
    • You never know who might introduce you to your next valuable business partner, referral or your next client.
  • Support
    • Giving and getting advice and encouragement.
  • Coaching
    • Working with people to achieve your best.
  • Motivation
    • Encouragement to focus and get things accomplished.

So, why is it called Mastermind?

Napoleon Hill, in his classic book Think and Grow Rich, introduced the term “master mind”:
"The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the 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, or the master mind.
