Chapter 10 Power of the Mastermind


POWER may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed KNOWLEDGE.” Power, as the term is here used, refers to ORGANIZED effort, sufficient to enable an individual to transmute DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. ORGANIZED effort is produced through the coordination of effort of two or more people, who work toward a DEFINITE end, in a spirit of harmony.

No individual may have great power without availing himself of the “Master Mind.


Since joining MFF I’ve discovered that a powerful mastermind is necessary to have success in any area of life.  A few key benefits that I’ve experienced are:

  1. Most business owners struggle not because of what they know but because of what they don't know. A mastermind group can help you focus on the tasks and priorities you need for success, even when you're unaware of what they are.

  2. Masterminding with other skilled people can dramatically shorten your learning curve. New ideas and solutions arise effortlessly.

  3. Knowing where you are and where you want to be is important but knowing how you're going to get there is absolutely critical. It can be the difference between success and failure. A mastermind group can help you by offering a fresh perspective, pointing out your blind spots, reminding you of your priorities, and highlighting the most efficient path.

  4. The group can help you develop business skills, give you insights and feedback on your projects and ideas, and stimulate you to think and do things you haven't considered before.

  5. Most important!!!  A mastermind is a source of support that will help a person through the failure and frustration that comes with being an entrepreneur.  This world is full of negativity, it’s easier to blame someone else for your failures…but that’s simple minded thinking.  The mastermind will teach you to go over, around, or straight through ANY obstacles!!!.   

Perseverance is not giving up. It is persistence and tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep doing it till the end, even if it's hard!!!


Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for creating this amazing mastermind, you’re greatly appreciated!!! Thank you to all my friends here at MFF for all your brilliance.


I’ll be here a year from now…
