Mastermind Benefits – What Are They?
Have you ever wished you would find a group of competent, trustworthy and caring set of peers whom you could constantly brainstorm with for entrepreneurship questions and marketing strategies?
If so, a mastermind group is all you need. There is no need to hesitate and go through your business challenges alone. Instead, connect with other go-getters like you and let us work together to plan and implement awesome short-term and long-term marketing strategies.
No doubt, joining a mastermind group will give a member many benefits. However, the benefits will vary from one person to another for the simple reason that each person is unique and what he or she REALLY needs will differ from another member in the same group. Not to mention the amount of committed action that will take place.
Some of the most common benefits for business owners and mastermind members that join a mastermind group are the following:
1. You Become Accountable
Napoleon Hill said, “A goal is a dream with a deadline.” With a mastermind group behind you, you will have the confidence to create a business plan of your tasks to be implemented at the set deadline. Your mastermind coach and peers will be there to inspire you, help you, and hold you accountable!
One of the biggest negative traits of an entrepreneur is the lack of accountability. We say this because we have actually witnessed how so many entrepreneurs are so guilty of this! This is where your mastermind group cuts the crap – the group will hold you accountable for the business plan that you told them you are going to do. Since your mastermind group session will be held in a few days, you will make sure that you would be able to report on your progress.
A common scenario: You are a business owner who declared a goal in front of your coach and peers in your mastermind group. You claim that you will have your first quarter marketing plan ready and present it to them on your next mastermind session. However, you kept procrastinating and eventually lost track of time.
As your next session draws near, you panic at the fact that you really did not do anything at all and you have no choice but admit it. You have high respect for your business coach and the other business owners in your group. You are not going to be “that one” who never keeps his/her word. This leaves you with only two options:
1) Keep your word and make your marketing plan or
2) Come up with a creative excuse so you would be absent on your next mastermind group meeting.
By not attending, you only make things worse! You will lose out on the other valuable business ideas that you will learn for your business. The wise choice is, of course, the first option.
So start working on your marketing plan. And this is not only to impress everyone in the mentoring program but more importantly, it is for your own good!
If you want your business to grow, it is IMPORTANT that you take the necessary steps to turn it into reality! You need to articulate your goals and desires and create a solid action plan so that they will materialize. Your mastermind group will hold you accountable and push you towards those important things!
2. You Grow as a Person
With your regular participation in the mastermind sessions, you realize that you have as much as to GIVE as you have to gain (This especially goes for the mastermind coach, too. A mastermind coach also learns from all his/her mastermind groups and his/her coaching and mentor clients).
Your self-confidence in yourself and in your business grows and your self-worth strengthens. And even if you don’t have that much confidence before, by meeting a group of like-minded people with a high amount of energy, you will further develop your personal and business skills through interaction with each member.
Many business owners join a mastermind group thinking they will learn a lot from it, but they don’t have enough confidence that they will be able to contribute as much to the group. Honestly, this thinking prevents some people from joining a mastermind group – that feeling of “not being good enough.”
However, you’ll be amazed at how a simple thought or idea of yours can morph into a truly awesome idea with the help and power of collaborating with others. You will realize that there are even MORE ideas inside your head that only need to be expressed.
3. You Get the Resources You Need
A mastermind group includes networking in the sense that you expand your social network. While the group adopts a “GIVE AND GET” philosophy, being a mastermind member is more like “GET, GET, GET” because you will surely receive a tremendous amount of resources.
As the saying goes, “You can get everything in life you want, if you’ll just help enough other people get what they want.”
It is so true. What’s awesome is that it tends to happen when you least expect it! You may have a marketing plan or business strategy in mind but you need a certain person or material to bring it all together. Who knows, someone in your mastermind group exactly knows the person or have the materials that you are looking for.
As you expand your network, so does your resources and resources is king!
4. You Gain Respect and Support
The mastermind group is a safe haven where you will find mutual support at all times. The members will try their best to uplift you. You will appreciate their honest but constructive feedback and suggestions. Each mastermind member does not have any limiting beliefs or thoughts about you.
They may ask you to elaborate your business ideas or encourage you to see things from a different point of view, but there is always that respect. And that is something that you would not normally see in today’s business environment.
After evaluating your business ideas and ensuring that you have covered all angles, should you decide to “go for it,” you’ll have a group of people behind you cheering you on and rooting for your success. A mastermind group is not a place for competition – here, you compete with yourself alone and you want everyone to win because you are all committed to everyone’s success.
A fun part of most mastermind groups is the joy of celebrating each other’s successes. It is always awesome to receive encouraging words from your fellow members. Getting a thumbs up, a clap or hearing “awesome job” might be sorely missing in your business. But you will definitely get more of these in your mastermind meetings.
There is no room for negativity in your business! Celebrate your successes, no matter how big or small. Frequent celebration of each success with your mastermind group will push you to be more proactive with your goals and action plans.
And if you’re struggling in one area or another, i.e. in sales and marketing, do not be afraid or shy to voice out your concerns. You’ll be amazed to know that your peers are more than willing to help you in any way they could.
5. You Become Energized
As everything in life, there may be days when you feel high or low when running your business. Sometimes you may even feel lack of energy for weeks. During these low times, a good mastermind group will be your much-needed “shot in the arm.”
By being a mastermind member, you get an instant support system. During the days when you are bursting with ideas, you transmit real energy to your business that can keep you going for a long time. Take advantage of this renewed energy in your business to find ways to attract, convert and retain your customers using offline or online marketing strategies. What more could you ask for?
6. You Gain Wisdom
There are business owners within the group who have “been there, done that” and you will be able to gain marketing strategies and mentoring from them. You will benefit from the time spent as a member of the group. Savor that experience.
Each member carries unique talents and experience. Someone may have experience in business planning while someone else has experience in sales and marketing. Another person in the group may be an expert in search engine optimization or online marketing.
Through brainstorming with your business coach and other mastermind members of the group, you are able to solve problems, make decisions and get helpful ideas during your mastermind meetings. Use all that experience to turn your business into the best that it could be. Get important insights, learn from the experience of the other members and let their successes inspire you.
The same applies for specialized or technical knowledge. Maybe you need to learn more about a certain aspect of your business. Other business people may have that specialized knowledge, and they can guide you. It is never too late to learn a thing or two.
7. You’ll be Surprised by the Synergy of the Group!
No doubt this is one of the very best parts of the mastermind group! It is exciting because you never know where an idea can come from or exactly how it will turn out. A small idea or concept can slowly turn into an elaborate plan. Someone will add his or her views, suggest another, or take away one thing and then the idea metamorphoses into something really awesome.
Sometimes, you would not be able to recognize the original idea or it would be completely different from the original thought. You would not understand the dynamics but you would surely be satisfied with the synergy of ideas. From this, partnerships or new independent businesses can be formed.
You would never guess! You will surely derive other benefits from the mastermind group that are unique to you. Some of these benefits you already know, and some will just surprise you!
