Show Notes

Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely life. You work long hours, often by yourself and it’s easy to allow the blindspots we all have to get in our way.

We can also end up spending way too much time researching and trying to learn about tools and trends that are not in our wheelhouse as my friend Lisa Roberts of Business Rx would say.

We need a way to dedicate time to working ON the business and we also need to develop healthy relationships with other like-minded professionals.

One of the best ways to do that is by participating in at least one mastermind group.

So when I decided this was an important topic to share with you I turned to my friend and colleague Everett O’Keefe.

Everett is an International #1 Bestselling Author, having authored and co-authored four Amazon #1 bestselling books. He has also helped create and launch more than a dozen bestselling books for his clients. He speaks across the nation on the power of publishing, expert positioning and how to create and leverage mastermind groups and events. He is co-founder of the The Masters Mastermind Group and also the Mastermind Retreat, an exclusive gathering of international marketing experts. He and this group of speakers, authors, coaches and consultants meet twice a year for an experiential event in locations such as Aspen, Yosemite and the Caribbean

Listen in and you’ll hear Everett explain…

  • What a mastermind is and is not
  • The benefits of being in a mastermind
  • What every mastermind needs
  • How to find a mastermind group that’s right for you
  • The best size for a mastermind group
  • How to start your own if you can’t find one
  • And the single detail that can derail your new group before it even gets off the ground

Be sure to listen all the way to the end. I’ll be back with your cocktail exercise and your action step for this episode.
