Now Reading: Mastermind

Napoleon Hill researched thousands of business people. He determined from these people how to be effective in business. This group is all about being effective. Using the principles Napoleon Hill discovered we are able to produce profound results with people.

Ruthless Compassion

In 2014 during one of our mastermind meetings I coined the phrase, “Ruthless Compassion.”  I am very committed to being compassionate.  However, being firm or ruthless can seem harsh.

Therefore, Ruthless Compassion ™ was born

Set your mind to it

I was a the 21st Century Democratic club meeting on Friday, November 13, 2015.  An amazing conversation about homelessness, the financial impact and what we can do to move about and beyond homelessness.  Jennifer Loving of Destination Home spoke.  Very engaging.  I spoke up that none of the solutions will take three years.  They can all be accomplished in 24 hours – Set your mind to it!

We can accomplish anything – Set your mind to it.

  • We can end homelessness – if we set our mind to it.
  • We can build shelters for people in record time – if we set our mind to it.
  • We can feed the world – if we set our mind to it.
  • We can cure diseases – if we set our mind to it.
  • We can end terrorism – if we set our mind to it.
  • We can build a house in under three hours – if we set our mind to it.

What would you make happen – if you set your mind to it?

I feel so special – life as an introvert

The way I see life as an introvert is like this, at times I can be just as social as most people.  However, most of the time I am simply enjoying resolving life’s opportunities in my head.  Said differently, living as an introvert.

When people think they know me they would swear I am an extrovert.  They are mistaken.  Newly admitted to a group, I am usually quiet and very thoughtful.  I will open up with time.  I put this blog post under “Stigma” because sometimes it feels like being an introvert has some negative label or assessment.  Much like AD/HD or ADD has a stigma.  These are somehow misconstrued as mental health weaknesses.

I beg to differ.  Once people know me they really like what I bring to the relationship, community or group.

Today an article on Huffington Post sparked my sharing.  The article is about highly successful introverts.  I bet a high number of them also have the markings or traits of AD/HD.

I entrust you with the opportunity to get to know me, I know I look forward to the same.

SEO or search engine optimization

This is one of the most tricky subjects in the area of Internet marketing.  Do you do it yourself (DIY), hire someone, ignore it all together or maybe let someone learn their way through at your expense?

DIY – sure you can take this on.  Is it the best use of your time?  Not likely unless SEO is your business.

Hire someone – how?  Tricky here too.  They all sound so knowledgeable.  I hired a guy who had subcontractors.  Not bad, but we did not seem to optimize for terms that mattered or that people were actually working for.  Go with caution.

Let someone learn at your expense?  Maybe a free intern?  Not sure this is good either.  If you make the wrong move you could end up in worse shape.

I was reading this article and thought you might find it useful.

I also know a friend of mine is making a difference with his clients – even signing some very large clients.

Master Mind Goal Setting

As I am working on my plan for riches and the universe aligns to support me with this… In speaking with a group member yesterday we discussed goals, not as such, but as having that check written out that you deposit in the future.  Much like Jim Carrey did years ago.  The discussion was about writing… Read More

Master mind context

Master mind context

When I facilitate these master mind meetings I often lay a foundation for the meeting.  This past meeting we started by looking at the context for the meeting.  The master mind context must always be one of empowerment. We ended up with some eye-opening distinctions.  Take a look at this picture – what do you… Read More

Master Mind group

When looking for ways to help my clients, I chose to embrace creating a mastermind group.  A mastermind group is where people, two or more, get together to review the issues people are facing.  In reviewing these needs we are able to collectively work out solutions. It is a truly magical process. Here is a… Read More
