First thought was a vital discussion group where the members were examining their wild and crazy ideas with vigorous discussion. Even vigorous disagreement! Best if the group is crashing through the walls on a mutual project.
But, I kept hearing different approaches, so I set off my favorite solution finder -- a book.
Reading reviews, examining prices, doing that all over again -- led me to a small book (black) entitied "The Black Book of the Master Mind", David K. Drews, author.
Drews uses a condensed and no frills method of defining Master Mind groups. He follows with a plan for organizing a group and offers advice about how to manage or maintain momentum in the group. There are pages of potential scenarios addressed by a master mind group along with advice from Drews from his life/business experience. There are tips that can be applied to many types of business. At Mastermind University, Drews has accumulated videos and articles of benefit to Master Mind groups
This small book does not lead you through Masterminding by the nose. It is not an outline and specific process for setting up a Master Mind group along with the management that makes the group effective. It is concise but occasionally conversational with 'war stories' from his own experiences. I found the stories interesting to consider. References to other business leaders who have achieved success using Master Mind techniques include Brian Tracy, Anthony Robbins, Napoleon Hill.
I came away with a different perspective for a Master Mind group. My former thoughts and understanding has more application for a Brain Storming Session. I haven't set up a Master Mind group or joined one -- the 'fad' was over by the time I finished the book. Should an opportunity arise to become involved in a real and serious Master Mind group, I can join and participate with more confidence and be able to maintain expectations with civility and courtesy.
Browse the web for reading about mastermind groups and I assure you that you’ll learn for free at least 1,000 times more than the knowledge you’ll get from this book. This book teaches absolutely nothing. David Dews does not even attend to the meaning of the word "mastermind".
I got the feeling that Drews makes fun of those who are tempted to buy the book. In part 1 of the “special bonus” Drews writes about expanding means: “There are several things you can do to expand your means: sell your excess stuff, …, start writing books and eBooks, …”. Writing books requires a minimal talent, or at least ability, while I must admit that my 8 years old boy has lingual abilities so much higher than the level reflected in this book.
This book appears to me as a collection of many sentences, each is composed of nearly arbitrary words, somehow related by meaning to words such as “mind”, “mastermind’, “money”, “wealth”, “rich”, etc., interconnected by adjectives, adverbs and others into sentences.
Ryan Moore recommended before me to read the sample. Well, I wish I had done so, though I think that the sample is misleadingly good, compared to the rest of the book.
My goal was to create a mastermind group within a community of insurance professionals from across the country. This book mapped out everything I needed to know on how to do it successfully. I am in the beginning stages of forming the group, and in the process of framing the rules, and have started meeting together on a monthly basis. The goal is for each one of us to fulfill our life's dreams as entrepreneurs and having such a group will enable us to do just that...And more.
