Being a part of a mastermind is magical and life changing! When you ask most people, they will tell you it is an honor to be surrounded by incredible business owners who are lifting each other up and creating a safe environment for growth. Masterminds are not new, Benjamin Franklin created one in 1727, but they were not called that until 1925 when Napoleon Hill coined the term. We know masterminds are SPARKing awesome, but here are seven reasons why you should consider one to grow your business and become an impactful leader!

1. Incredible People in Your Back Pocket

When you are surrounded by people with the same abundance mindset  who took a leap of faith, you’ll realize your similarities and differences will boost tremendous growth. Often people invest in courses, but why not relationships? Having an incredible mastermind in your back pocket can help you be more successful than if you were going on this business journey alone. Learning from others who have been there and done that is gold, but building meaningful relationships is priceless!

2. Sounding Board for Decision-Making

A sounding board can alleviate some of the weight of being the only decision-maker when you are an entrepreneur. You may have some wonderful ideas on what to do with your business, but no one to bounce them off of. Masterminds bring a diverse set of individual personalities together to share ideas, be vulnerable, and receive priceless feedback. It is also valuable to have a sounding board that is not your spouse or best friend.

3. Surround Yourself with Others Who Resonate with You

Everyone has heard the saying that “it’s lonely at the top,” but honestly, it does not have to be. Masterminds connect you to other people who are ambitiously going after their dreams and can resonate with your “goal digging” attitude! There is a sense of community that is formed with masterminds that give you the opportunity to grow yourself and business in an uplifting environment while taking massive action.

4. Be Student and a Teacher

Being open to learning from other’s experiences can help you up-level your business faster because you can study failures and mistakes. In masterminds, you are equally the student and the teacher. Failure does not have to be your best teacher, that is what a mastermind is for! Sometimes as leaders following others is just as important.

5. Create Long-Term Relationships

Masterminds are relationship-based networking groups that get you connected to like-minded and result-driven individuals. They provide enhanced brain~power that can be utilized to solve problems and form life-long friendships. This is where “word-of-mouth” comes into play. The energy you put into creating authentic relationships is the energy you will get out of a mastermind. Can you place a price on your marriage or your best friend’s?….. Not likely because Relationships are priceless

6. Keep Yourself Accountable!

Accountability keeps you motivated to stay focused on your goals to grow your business. Sometimes just knowing that others will be checking in, and asking you to stay in integrity with your word, can make all the difference. The best time to learn is when things do not go your way. That is why the cycle of masterminds begin when you are held accountable to your actions and passions.

7.Filling & keeping Your Cup FULL FULL FULL

Masterminds can leave you feeling energized, supported, and ready to take on any herculean task while filling your cup at the same time. You are not alone! These groups give an opportunity to be asked bigger questions, give and receive wise advice, and gain new perspectives that can shift our limiting beliefs. This time is for YOU. The time to let go so you can let more IN.
