Choosing the Right Members
When starting a mastermind group, it’s important to start with people who share your vision for your business and can help you achieve that vision. When you choose members for your group, consider these three factors: 1) is there alignment between their goals and mine? 2) do I know them personally? 3) do I trust them? Once you have these answers, start thinking about who in your network shares similar experiences as you.

Growing Your Business
A mastermind group, sometimes called a mastermind alliance or business mastermind group, is not as mysterious as it may sound. It’s simply an organized discussion between two or more individuals that meet on a regular basis in order to review their progress and share ideas that help each other grow their businesses and lives. Not sure how to start your own? Here are some tips on how to start a mastermind group.

Continuing Education
The term mastermind group was first coined by Napoleon Hill in his 1937 book, Think and Grow Rich. His version of a mastermind group included 17 of his most successful friends. The goal was for each member to share their problems and successes with one another in an effort to mutually achieve success. Since then, mastermind groups have evolved from exclusive fraternities into communities that anyone can join. But what makes them so powerful?

The Price Tag on Starting a Mastermind Group
Not for Everyone. Starting up a mastermind group isn’t cheap—in fact, it can be one of your most expensive business expenses yet. You’ll need time and money to meet with your peers consistently and establish trust before you create value together. So why start one? Because, once you have an engaged group working toward similar goals and helping each other accomplish those goals faster, you’ll reap far more rewards than what it cost to get there.
