I don’t know about you, but I struggle with keeping up to date with what’s going on in the Wonderful World of Web. Further to that, I also struggle with focusing on my projects, finishing what I start, developing successful business ideas and explaining myself clearly (among other things).
I also struggle with working on my own for extended periods of time with no-one to bounce ideas off. This is a biggie and it can lead to moments of madness and a fair amount of self-doubt.
I hoped I wasn’t the only one who felt like this and decided to reach out to a couple of friends. I kept the “madness” part quiet and floated the idea of starting a small mastermind group.
I worried that being the least experienced of the three of us (they’ve both published books and have thousands of Twitter followers) that they’d say no or I’d feel like I wasn’t bringing much to the table.
Fortunately, they both agreed!
We’ve been meeting weekly via Skype for the last month and discussing our plans, goals, fears and struggles in detail. It’s great to have such a friendly and understanding environment to talk openly about ideas as well as the financial and business side of them too.
We’ve all got projects on the go, mine being AtoZ CSS, and we all have something different and interesting to bring to the table.
I’d heard about mastermind groups on various business podcasts but never really knew how to get into one or where to start looking. It turns out the best approach is to start your own. I’d highly recommend it to anyone!
