Sharpen Your Entrepreneurial Edge

Sharpen Your Entrepreneurial Edge

In the Bible, Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” This holds true in entrepreneurial circles, as well. When you surround yourself with thoroughbreds and people who can help you grow, you’ll naturally become a smarter businessperson.

Many years ago, Napoleon Hill introduced the concept of mastermind peer groups in his book, Think and Grow Rich. Hill described the mastermind group principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose in the spirit of harmony.”

Here are three reasons why a mastermind group could prove beneficial to you in your professional and personal life.

Expand Your Mind

When you surround yourself with amazing people doing incredible things, something quite unbelievable happens — you end up being just like them. How’s that possible? Because the potential to be absolutely awesome is in each of us. And when you get fired up or inspired by like-minded small-business owners with the same value systems, you just won’t be able to stop it from coming out of you!

Get Great Advice

Owning your own company can be a lonely job. And many times, it seems there is no one to turn to when you’re experiencing problems. When you’re in a mastermind group, though, you’ll have a group of friends who, in many cases, have already “been there, done that” and can show you the ropes, offer some solutions, or provide valuable insights of their own.

Make New Friends

In today’s technology-driven society, it’s sometimes easy to forget the best relationships are made when human beings actually get together and talk. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn and grow, plus you’ll make a lot of new friends — face-to-face — with people who “get” you. And like good friends should, your mastermind group will hold you accountable.

It could be a great investment!
