I’ve been part of a Business Mastermind Group for nearly all my business life and there’s no doubt that if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t have found it so easy to grow my business. I am not saying it’s always been easy but it’s certainly been much easier because of the support I’ve had from like-minded people in Business Mastermind Groups. Wonderful people who’ve become friends who support each other.
Here are seven good reasons to join a Business Mastermind Group:
You will grow your business more quickly – when you are in the right business mastermind group you are likely to grow your business more quickly than otherwise. Being part of a part of a team of like-minded people sharing experiences and resources is so powerful. You effectively get access to a collective mind of knowledge, of experience, of wisdom, and a much larger business network.
Enjoy being part of a team – being in business can sometimes feel like a lonely affair. Business masterminds can really help provide companionship and emotional support. Groups are usually quite small and intimate so you get to know other members well. Soon it can feel like you’re part of a team of close partners and friends who are there to help you move your business forward.
A place to get support – a third benefit is having a place and group of people you can ask for help whenever you have a problem, a question, or are feeling stuck. For me, the first port of call whenever I need support is to ask the people within my mastermind group, either in an online group or directly asking an individual if they’ve got a few minutes to help me chat through something. People in a mastermind group often do this for one another. It feels really good to have this kind of support and to be able to support others in this way too.
Expand your vision for what’s possible for you – the fourth benefit is that being in a mastermind group will expand your perception and your vision, for your business. You see when you get together as a group presenting different challenges and ideas you’re likely to benefit from many of the discussions started by others. You’ll also see others within your group taking their business in a slightly different direction, or trying out something you hadn’t thought of yourself, that may lead you to think, “I wouldn’t mind giving that a shot too.” So being in a mastermind group can really help to expand the vision you have for your business.
Feel more motivated to take action – the fifth benefit is that you are more likely to feel motivated to take action. When you discuss your ideas you bring them to life and when you commit to others that you’ll do certain things, you’re more likely to do them. Particularly when you see others forging ahead in implementing all their ideas.
Accountability – following on from the last point, having accountability buddies in your group can really help you do what you’ll do. In my mastermind groups, I ask members to commit to what they’re going to do each month and to update us all on their progress at the start of the next meeting. Often the accountability that happens during the monthly meetings is plenty although some members also take it upon themselves to meet up with each other between meetings.
Find new business partnerships – something that’s happened naturally in all the mastermind groups I have in is that other members have become great business partners. Why? Because we’ve got to know each other so well and we want to support one another. You also get far more insight into whether you have confidence in someone’s products and services when you develop close relationships with them. Sometimes through discussions, ideas turn into collaboration opportunities there and then. Many of my best business partners are people I’ve met in Business Mastermind Groups. And of course, other members are likely to know people they can introduce you to too.
Without a doubt being part of a Business Mastermind Group brings can yield so many benefits for you and your business and in most cases will help you grow your business more quickly and easily than trying to do it yourself.
