Watch This Video and Learn the Single Success Factor of Walt Disney, C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and Benjamin Franklin
About two years ago, I found myself going through a whole range of emotions with my business:
This was a bit puzzling to me because I was doing what most people only dream of doing: working from home and being my own boss.
The One Word That Changed the Direction of My Business
At the beginning of 2013, I knew something was going to have to change if I was going to get to the next level. I decided to choose a single word to be my theme for the year. The word I chose was “connection.”
I desperately needed to surround myself with other passionate people who were heading in the same direction.
This lead me to form a “mastermind group.”
The results have been nothing short of astonishing…
Members of our group have:
- Written books
- Created online courses
- Launched speaking careers
- Opened the doors to new businesses
- Started new conferences
- and so much more
In my own business I was able to:
- Double my business revenue last year
- Match that revenue this year in the first six months
What You Need Might Not Come from a Book
I love books and I’m an avid reader, but can I be honest with you for a moment? What you need to get to the next level might not be in a book. I find that most of us are well-educated beyond our actions.
“I find that most of us are well-educated beyond our actions.”
Here’s what a mastermind group can do for you that a book cannot:
- Accountability when you need to take action
- Feedback when you feel stuck
- Encouragement when you feel discouraged
- Promotional help when you need to get the word out
That’s why I so strongly believe in the power of a mastermind group.
The Quote That Changed Everything
A few years ago I read a quote from C.S. Lewis that stopped me in my tracks. C.S. Lewis the writer of the Chronicles of Narnia was in a mastermind group called the Inklings. Here is what he said about the power of a mastermind group:
Are you living in a circle of wisdom? If not, here’s a plan for you.
Circle of Wisdom: A Mastermind Group Launch Plan
I’ve put together over 35+ video tutorials on how to launch and lead a mastermind group. I’ve left nothing out. In fact, the members of my own mastermind group have made certain that nothing is left out.
This 30 day mastermind group launch course is divided into 4 modules:
Most people launch mastermind groups the wrong way. In this module, you’ll learn not only the right questions to ask, but how to get to the right answers before you launch a mastermind group.
- The ONE Single Factor That Determines Success
- Where Am I Headed?
- Where Do I Need to Grow?
- What Exactly is a Growth Friend?
- Should My Group Be Local or Virtual?
- How Many People Should Be in My Group?
Next you will need to add the right members to the group. Don’t make the mistake of pitching your idea to a bunch of people in hopes that a few will say yes. Having less of the right people in your group is better than more of the wrong people.
- Where Are My Ideal Members Hanging Out?
- The Mastermind Group Interviewing Process
- The Mastermind Group Interviewing Questionnaire
- The Get-To-Know Each Other Phone Call
- Establishing Mastermind Group Member Guidelines
Once you have your ideal members on board, you need set up your group for success from day one. My group is completely managed online, but we do make an effort to meet each other in person a few times a year. To launch out of the gate with a good start, answer these questions.
- How to Conduct Your First Meeting
- 3 Simple Keys to a Successful Group

Living in a Circle of Wisdom Keynote
I gave a keynote at a leadership event in Dallas on how to live in a circle of wisdom. In the speech, you’ll learn just how powerful mastermind groups can be for your life and for your business. You can watch the entire keynote in the bonus section of the member’s area.
How to Use Google Hangouts & Google Plus Communities to Run Your Mastermind Group
Our group started by using Google Hangouts and a private Google Plus Community Group. In this bonus video training, I’ll take you inside our private group and show you how we have used Google Plus to stay in touch with each other through out the week.
How to Use the Slack App to Run Your Mastermind Group
Another popular app these days for group collaboration is the Slack App. As a group, we love Slack because we are a group on the go. You can access Slack via the iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, PC or just in any online browser.
In this training video, I’ll show you some creative ways we are using Slack with our mastermind group.
Here’s a few of the common questions I get about mastermind groups along with my answers:
How hard is it to actually start a mastermind group? Starting a new group can be a bit daunting if you’ve never done it before. The good news is that we have a proven step-by-step system you can follow. In the course, I share the exact questionnaire that I had potential members fill out.
I’m really busy. Does being in a mastermind group take a lot of work? As a group we commit one hour a week to each other. For us, it is 4:00 on Thursdays inside of a Google Hangout. Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to spend an hour.
I just don’t know where to find my ideal members. Can you help? We got you covered. We have specific videos that offer ideas and insights on where to find your ideal members. We even cover the type of members you want in your group to make it successful.
Can I really launch a group in 30 days? You bet! Just follow our 4-step process to success. One module a week is very reasonable. Of course, you can start a group much faster if you’d like.
Can I view the course on my iPad, iPhone or smart phone? Yes! The member’s area and all of the videos are able to be viewed on any device. Learn on the go if you’d like!
Am I able to ask questions if I get stuck somewhere in the process? Absolutely! Under each video in the course is a comment/question box, I (Jonathan) will be personally monitoring the questions that come in. I’m more than happy to help you along the way.
Is there a money back guarantee? Always! We offer a no-questions asked 30 day money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, just submit a support ticket and we will refund your money. It’s that easy!

Can I Share a Few Mastermind Moments with You?
In our group we have a saying we call “mastermind moments.” A mastermind moment is a moment when the lightbulb comes on in one of our calls. Mastermind moments have launched courses, created clarity, and started businesses. I’d like for you to hear personally from some of the members in my mastermind group on the power and impact our group has had in their lives:
