7 Ways Masterminds Help You Build Your Dream Business

by Jen Wittman, 6-Figure Business Strategist, Mindful Mavericks

When I first started my career as a health expert for thyroid and autoimmune conditions, I felt alone. There weren’t many people out there focused on thyroid and autoimmune conditions and as a solopreneur, I found myself sitting behind a computer feeling pretty lonely in business when I wasn’t face-to-face with a client.

For a few years, I was really confused as to how to find other experts like myself, how to build a true community and how to get from out behind my desk. Strangely, I woke up one morning with a voice saying, “Reach out to Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness.”

I sat there thinking to myself, “Huh!?! I don’t know Sean Croxton.” While I was a huge fan of his podcasts, I thought it would be crazy to reach out. I wasn’t an author, I didn’t have a large following, and I had no clue what I could offer him or why I should reach out. While I had a successful private health coaching practice with regular clients and some quite high profile folks, I wasn’t sure why to take the step.

The voice persisted.

And one day, while listening to Sean’s podcast with powerhouse health expert Sarah Ballantyne, he announced he was creating an online summit all about how to heal thyroid conditions. I hit pause. My heart leapt. The answer was clear – this is WHY you have to reach out to Sean. I immediately shot an email to him asking him how I could support his summit and he invited me to be a speaker for it…and he eventually became my business mentor.

During one of our chats, I asked Sean, “what’s the #1 thing I can do to connect with like-minded people and grow my business?” His BIGGEST and BEST piece of advice? Join a mastermind.

And I did.

After that, everything about my business soared…and the rest is history.

The concept of joining a mastermind group was created almost 75 years ago by Napoleon Hill in his book, Think and Grow Rich.

Mastermind groups help you connect, find your tribe and navigate through the tricky points and challenges of business by leveraging the collective intelligence, talents and connections of others in your group. It’s a place to support others in their businesses and be supported as well. Growth becomes exponential in a mastermind group due to sheer brainstorming power, problem-solving resources and people sharing their networks with you.

There are many types of mastermind groups – those that meet in-person and virtually, those that meet weekly, monthly, or once a year. Those that address general issues or focus on a very specific result. Those that are open to the public or require a private invitation. Whatever type of mastermind, you grow your business, your network, and find more support.

The loneliness that can seep into entrepreneurship disappears.

That may have been one of the biggest advantages to joining a mastermind for me personally but here are 7 other reasons a mastermind might be perfect for you!

1. Access to an Exclusive Community – when you join a mastermind, you’re usually invited into a private and exclusive group of like-minded people who have as much skin in the game as you do. These high-quality communities give as much as they get and are invaluable to future business success. Plus, you often make some lifelong friends who are always there to support you.

2. Business Expansion Through Brainstorming – during the actual mastermind and often afterwards, there are incredible opportunities to brainstorm with a talented group of people through your business challenges. You’ll gain new insights and be exposed to fresh ideas they may not have crossed your mind.

3. Co-Creation & Collaboration – the connections you make through joining a mastermind provides the perfect avenue for collaborating with other business owners. The entrepreneurial inspirations run strong in these group with many people partnering up to create an even better product or service to offer to the world.

4. Support – when you get stuck or you run into a business hurdle (like copyright, contract or legal issues), someone in your mastermind group has probably already encountered this situation and has the resources you need to get through it. In essence, someone in the group has paved the way for addressing business challenges that pop up easier and you don’t have to face them alone.

5. Networking – If anything, the connection and networking possibilities in a mastermind group are endless. You grow your network exponentially almost immediately by joining one and being an active and engaged member. Another bonus – if you’re trying to connect to someone who’s a big name or hard to reach, likely someone in your knows them and can provide a personal introduction.

6. Mastering New Skills – Mastermind leaders usually offer avenues for education and exposure to experts who will teach you new business skills – think copywriting, branding, FB, Instagram, YouTube, financial experts and more. These resources help you gain the skills you need to create a successful and sustainable business.

7. Cross-promotion – this is, by far, where joining a mastermind pays off. Once you’re an engaged and generous member of the group, you’ll find your fellow members will gladly cross-promote your products and services, helping you make easy financial leaps while growing your audience.

If a mastermind group sounds great to you, I invite you to follow the smell of fresh rosemary, espresso and good ol’ Tuscan wine, and join me in 2019 for our Pasta N’Profit Mastermind Getaway in Italy!

To me, Italy is always the remedy.

The vivacious culture, incredible architecture, innovative fashion, art, music, and profoundly delicious cuisine contains the cure. Whatever ails you – in love, life, business – Italy has the answer.

It’s where I go when I need clarity, nourishment and to find myself again. It was my first true love. I can’t remember any passion so deep before it…and I find my way back every year to reconnect to its magic.

This year, you can join me in breathtaking Tuscany for a once-in-a-lifetime, totally transformative, soul-fueled mastermind.

You’ll walk away with something tangible – not just ideas but a fully-formed action plan to grow your business and keep you on track. You read that right! By the end of our mastermind, you’ll walk away with complete business clarity, financial, marketing and sales strategies, a belly full of Italian delights and new business besties whose support runs mafia deep.

As an inspired creator yourself, you know that business breakthroughs go best when you’re away from your usual environment, open to fresh ideas and available for those inspirational downloads that only come when you have a moment to yourself…without the distractions from family, childcare and your regular endless to-do’s.
