Let’s Learn Something New
I decided a few weeks ago I needed to change a few things in my businesses, become more organized and improve the way I did things. Being a one man band is difficult and I just don’t have enough time in the day to do everything. I have started to outsource my business so it would free up my time to concentrate on the most important things.
Start And Evolution
I also decided I needed to up my game and get outside ideas and the best way was to start a mastermind, I didn’t have a clue how to start or run one, I just read a few things on how it would be run and went on with that and so far so good. The current mastermind started with the intention of having people from different businesses coming together and building on the ideas they already had. We are now in our 3rd session and it has evolved into a blogging mastermind. I feel this is perfect for the members as we all have blogs and can look at each other’s blog from an outside view, make suggestions and give feedback on things that can be improved upon.
You think you have all the ideas and think you can do it all on your own but this is so untrue, you need help along your journey whether you like it or not. This can help you with ideas and putting you back on the right track. The other members can spot things you would never see which you are blind to as your blog is your own creation. In no way the members are telling you this out of spite but they genuinely want you to be successful and make your blog improve. Every member has his strengths and weaknesses and everyone can help in their own way.
The guys in the group have given me some fantastic advice I would have never thought of. The main thing I took away from this weeks is that what they associate my blog name with and the reason they came to visit my blog in the first place. My blog is about me and my journey and they showed me why the post Why Being Your Own Boss Is Awesome! got so many views and shares. It was more personal and about myself. In my last few posts I had gone away from my original purpose. By them pointing this out to me I have been able to reassess and take my blog back in the right direction.
Even though our mastermind is about blogging we got an interesting surprise which I feel has helped all members. Khairul Izad has a blog on Law of Attraction and he gave me and Trevor some interesting advice on the law of attraction. He said that you should keep a small notebook with you throughout the day and write down good and grateful things that happen to you. This will bring all sorts of surprises to you. When I first heard this I was a bit skeptical but after he explained more it made more sense. You may now see me carrying around small notebook and randomly writing, it will be all the positive and grateful things which happen to me.
I feel your words can really shape your day, if you say negative words it can make you more negative, if you say positive words you can have more positive feelings.
How To Start Your Own Mastermind
Being in a mastermind is one of the easiest and most beneficial things you can do in your life even if you are not doing business, join or start a mastermind.
These are the steps to starting your own mastermind.
- Make a post on a related group on Facebook
- Many people will ask to join so you have to filter people
- Select the people based on if they will add benefit to the group.
- Select 2-3 people
- Set a date and time on a weekly basis
- If someone doesn’t attend – Give people 2 chances before finding someone new.
- Remember the mastermind is to benefit everyone
- You don’t want to be chasing up people who are not sticking to the schedule.
- Help each other progress.
I believe this mastermind has truly helped me with my blog and is keeping me more focused. It is great that I can meet with people in cities around the world and talk with them on like-minded subjects. I feel I am starting to build some great relationships with the people in my current mastermind, they have helped me in ways I would have never thought of.
If you haven’t started a mastermind you should get on it today, you will wonder why you never started on earlier.
Have you started your mastermind yet, if you haven’t, start one! If you have let me know how it went in the comments below.
