Show Notes

Elevate Your Circle to Improve Your Life. 

As I built Red Blue Collective, I looked for connection. I wanted knowledge and community. 

I went to local entrepreneurship and startup events. I participated in the local makerspace. I started speaking and hosting events. 

Nothing really clicked. 

The people were loosely connected and not serious. At least, they were not serious about the things I find important. 

I joined a paid community two years ago which led to massive change. created powerful connections, and opened up a world of other valuable groups. 

Summary
Forget the cliché guru and mastermind nonsense. Finding a community of serious entrepreneurs will accelerate your growth. Learning and collaborating with other people pulls knowledge from multiple perspectives. 

Episode Highlights
Connection Beyond Networking 
Entrepreneurship is only lonely because you lack the right friends, peers, and mentors. People are waiting for someone with your exact knowledge. No one is listening or helping because you are asking the wrong people.

Coordination of Knowledge 
Share real knowledge to grow your business. One session might be on marketing strategy. Another might discuss product development.

Staying On Track 
Mastermind programs meet regularly. Members hold each other accountable. When you get put in the hot seat, you want answers and progress to report.

Business Growth 
The basic idea is simple. Grow your business by surrounding yourself with successful people. When you see other’s success, imagining progress becomes easier.

How to Find your Mastermind 
Joining mastermind groups is not as simple as searching for "best master mind 2021". The market has many types of mastermind groups. Some groups are named accelerators, communities, or even clubs. Not everyone is a fan of Napoleon Hill and the book Think and Grow Rich.

Look for:

  • Aligned Values - I value different things than others. I want to make sure a community is aligned with and helps support my core values.
  • Specialization or Focus - Some organizations focus on a trade or goal. Others guarantee zero overlap between members. Personally, I want to speak with people who have done what I am trying to do.
  • Level of Success - we can learn something from just about anyone. If you are trying to make a million dollars, $60k per year earners might not be the best fit.
