As I mentioned in my previous post the #Boss2009 event with @barefoot_exec and so many others was outstanding. Prior to the event I spent an incredible time with my mastermind group. I would like to thank the following for the feedback and the wisdom that was shared over the time we spent together.
@BareFoot_Exec (Carrie Wilkerson) @Nicheology (Paul Evans) @AskMrVideo (Perry Lawrence) @CraigBallantyne @savvydivorcdchk (Colleen Bushby) @JaneButton @ManageYourBar (Barry Chandler) @MetroMom (Kim DeYoung) @JennyFlintoff @BizownersOnline (Aaron Foster) @SiobhanGuthrie @JHaubein (Jennifer Haubein) @IrishSmiley @BradSemp @MarketingBum (MarkShilensky) @HeidiShilensky @ThePreneur (Blake & Julie Templeton) @DrEmmaJean @JamesWedmore and @HollyRigsby.
There is a very wise proverb in the old testament that sums up my experience with my mastermind group. “Without counsel plans go awry, but in the multitude of counselors they are established.”
What I learned from my mastermind group was invaluable. It would be hard to put a price tag on it. The feedback that I received about the project that has consumed me over the past year was confirmation that I was mostly on the right track with a few exceptions. The biggest mistake that I was about to make is the price tag I put on the new product I was about to launch. Had I not received feedback from some very wise and experienced internet marketers I would have made a major mistake. That one piece of advice was so valuable. I would hate to think where I would be today without the constant feedback from my mastermind group.
Another great thing about being in the counsel of many is the accountability factor. I love what Jim Rohn said many years ago, “Don't hang out with the easy crowd.” Do you realize that you will only be as great as the people that you associate with? Remember this, someone cannot teach you something that they have never experienced before. I could not teach you how to ride a motorcycle, we would both end up in the hospital.
Let me leave you with a couple of questions to ponder. Who are you around? What do they have you thinking? What do they have you doing? Is this where you really want to go?
