Being alone sucks. Don’t believe me? Try being on a desert island with only a volley ball for company
Community, relationships, bring success to a life, if you surround yourself with the right people.
I believe the idea of a mastermind group originated from Napoleon Hill, who defines a mastermind as
“Consists of two or more people that work in perfect harmony for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Napoleon Hill
In June of 2013, I started a mastermind group. I’m a part of the 48 Days Community. It’s an amazing place to interact with other entrepreneurs and dreams. There’s a Mastermind Group within the community. There were over 150 members in this group. Dozens had asked in the comment section if there were any mastermind groups that were local. All of which received no replies.
I quickly joined and asked who would be interested in an online mastermind.

Your ideas rocks! But even Winston Churchill needed feedback on his ideas.
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. – Winston Churchill
My mastermind group has brought attention to areas of my platform that need attention. They’ve criticized the way I perform my interviews. They have improved my performance.
6) Builds your confidence
