The concept of the Mastermind Group was formally introduced by Napoleon Hill in the early 1900's. In his timeless classic, Think and Grow Rich, he wrote about the Mastermind principle as:

The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.
— Napoleon Hill

The simplest definition of masterminding is “brainstorming with one or more individuals in order to achieve and exceed desired outcomes.”

Mastermind Groups (also known as peer-to- peer advising) offer each participant an opportunity to share his or her knowledge base, skills and resources with one another with the intent of assisting each member in obtaining personal or professional goals and visions.

Think of your Mastermind Group as an objective advisory board that will provide you with honest feedback, new possibilities, and higher expectations and accountability, which will push you to new heights in achievement. 

We invite you to join one of our Mastermind Groups or consider starting your own in your community.  Everything you need to know is noted below:
