It's About Accountability . . .
. . . You Don't Need to Go it Alone

During a recent meeting of my Million-Dollar Round Table—a master mind team of business owners—two significant decisions were made. They were not the only decisions made, but these happened to have resulted in several thousand dollars being saved and will earn several thousand more.

Not all assemblies of our team generates such quantifiable payoffs. But every time we meet, we gain more clarity, uncover hidden opportunities and come away with more resolve and greater confidence in reaching our individual objectives.

Sharing Goals, Celebrating Wins
We each share our goals with the rest of the team. We're questioned, advised, supported and encouraged by our team mates. I don't know why it is, but a commitment to someone else carries more weight than a commitment to ourselves. In the Master Minds I'm involved with, we talk about what we want to accomplish and why. We gain more clarity and we develop more consistency in our action plans. We hold ourselves accountable.

We also post our successes so we can all celebrate our progress. At the same time, we review why and how some goals weren't reached. We take responsibility, we learn and we move on —getting better and stronger all the time.

No matter how good you might be, you have blind spots. To see the bigger picture, to help eliminate your bias, you need to get OUTSIDE of what you're doing. You need the better viewpoint of others who aren't so close to your issues. You need a Master Mind team. 

What about you? Do you have your own Master Mind? 

It's really not difficult to set up and the payoff is substantial.

Companies have boards of directors. The President has his cabinet. Why not have your own group of advisors —for free?

The concept isn't new. Benjamin Franklin had his Junto that met for over forty years and to which he attributed much of his success. Napoleon Hill, the author of 'Think and Grow Rich' created his Master Mind Alliance. It worked for them and it will work for you.

As I look back over the last thirty years, I can tell when I was part of a Master Mind and when I wasn't by looking at my achievements. It tracks almost perfectly. When I was involved in a Master Mind, I always accomplished more —WAY more.

There's no need to go it alone. Why WOULD you? Start or join a Master Mind today.

Turbo Teams
Sterling Valentine and I are forming a Turbo Team —a small group of people who want to make their marketing really work. If you're interested in joining —only a few days and two spots left—you'll find full details at
