Toronto Mastermind Group


The concept of Mastermind Groups was first discussed by Napoleon Hill in his famous book, "Think And Grow Rich." In his research of the most successful people of his time, Hill found that a key difference that made people successful was being involved in Mastermind Groups. Masterminding involves bringing people together with different experiences and ideas to collaborate, brainstorm, and provide support to help the participants achieve their goals. For business owners Masterminding can help you model other successful entrepreneurs, make you accountable for achieving your goals, and provide you with your own personal experienced board of directors.

Famous Example

Henry Ford's Mastermind Group

"Men take on the nature and the habits and the power of thought of those with whom they associate in a spirit of sympathy and harmony. Through his association with Edison, Burbank, Burroughs, and Firestone, Mr. Ford added to his own brain power the sum and substance of the intelligence, experience, knowledge, and spiritual forces of these four men. Moreover, he appropriated and made use of the Master Mind principle."

International Example

Young Presidents Association

Young Presidents' Organization brings together more than 11,000 young business leaders across 90 nations for peer networking. They exchange ideas, pursue learning, and share strategies to achieve personal and professional growth and success. Their philosophy is to make themselves better presidents by learning from each other. According to their Website, "Nobel Laureate Nelson Mandela, U.S. Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, His Royal Majesty King Abdullah II of Jordan and Revolutionary Leader Fidel Castro are examples of world leaders who have carved time from their schedules to meet YPOers and share lessons in what it means to be a global leader." To qualify, however, for the Young Presidents' Organization you need to have $8,000,000 in sales and over 50 employees.

Canadian Example

Quote

Brian Scudamore

"In my case, the value of peer networking was more than just incredible business advice. Not surprisingly, the members of my forum have also become some of my closest friends. I can honestly say that my peer network was one of the most important factors in enabling the expansion of my business."

Toronto Entrepreneur Mastermind

I have now set up a series of Mastermind Groups for Toronto entrepreneurs who want to benefit from the peer to peer network of group coaching, support, and experience

Here are the main components:

  1. Timing

    Meetings with your group are once per month.

  2. Voice

    Each member will then have 15-20 minutes of their own time to share their challenges and get feedback and suggestions from the rest of the group. This is your time to bring up your important business issues and get valuable advice to help you move forward.

  3. Goals

    At the end of the session members set goals for the next month and are paired with another member. A weekly time is set between pairs for a quick phone call to follow up and make sure you follow through on your goals.

  4. Privacy

    Members are from non-competing industries and sign confidentiality agreements.

Testimonial

Dr. Anna B. Baranowsky

"As a Clinical Psychologist, my background did not provide me with any business training. In the Toronto Entrepreneur Mastermind Group I have found a tremendous resource of people who are willing to discuss all aspects of running a business. There is such diversity among the members who range in their professions as well in the development of their businesses. So we all learn about every stage of business development and the idea generation for complex problems is an enjoyable and worthwhile exercise every time. Bravo Evan for putting together such an terrific program."

Testimonial

Kris Schantz

"The Toronto Entrepreneur Mastermind Group is a cross between a league of entrepreneurial superheroes and a no-nonsense support group. My own strengths and weaknesses are checked by my group mates, who actively support and motivate me to meet my targets, be a better entrepreneur and a better person. Before I joined the group I was a 150-pound business weakling... now look at me! Beefcake. Beefcake!!"

Commitment

There is a financial commitment of $99 / month satisfaction guaranteed membership fee and monthly dinner costs (usually $15 / month for catered meal). There is also a time commitment which is not to be taken lightly. It consists of coming to the meetings each month and calling your accountability partner to make sure you follow through on your goals once a week. Membership, however, is not for everyone. You have to be serious about building your business and be willing to share with and learn from other entrepreneurs.

John Carter

"Ever feel like you're nuts being an Entrepreneur? Like you have no-one who understandings the challenges you face, and to share in your successes? The Toronto Entrepreneur Mastermind Group is a group of like-minded, equally successful entrepreneurs that are equally open to share feedback and ideas on my businesses as they are open to my input. I wouldn't be an entrepreneur without a group like this."

Mark Drager

"As an Entrepreneur, who do you turn to for advice? Family members? Friends? Ex Co-workers? In most cases they don't understand the challenges I'm facing because they haven't been there. The Toronto Entrepreneur Mastermind Group is made up of Entrepreneurs who HAVE been there - they've faced the challenges that lay ahead of me and through shared camaraderie will help me overcome them."
