Are you a small producers, professional crafters and artisans who is interested in a Mastermind Group?

Personal development program, and experts or 'guru' in any given field encourages the use of mentors to accelerate your business growth, learning and profits.

Over the years, my husband and myself have been members of many different mentoring or mastermind groups that sky rocketed our learning on a particular subject matter. Learning with and from others takes lots of the 'leg work' out of learning news skills and techniques to make your business grow.

With those principles in mind, in May of 2012, we started our own Mastermind Group: Selling to Retailers!

What is a Mastermind Group?

The term "mastermind" was first coined through the work of Napoleon Hill, who achieved fame by studying the habits of successful people. He later publishing several works on the topic, the most famous of which, was "Think and Grow Rich":

Here is what W. Clement Stone Chairman, Combined International Corporation President, The Napoleon Hill Foundation says about Mastermind groups:

"...During our ten-year association, I learned the missing number to my combination for worldwide successful achievement. The Master Mind Principle: two or more persons working together in complete harmony toward a mutual goal or goals...Napoleon Hill's philosophy teaches you what you were never taught. Specifically: How to Recognize, Relate, Assimilate and Apply principles whereby you can achieve any goal whatsoever that doesn't violate Universal Law - the Law of God and the rights of your fellowman..."

The concept of a Mastermind group, is to bring together people with a common goal, and rely on this group knowledge to reach those goals, benefiting everyone in the group .

In this case, the mastermind group's goal becomes the growth of a highly profitable and rewarding product marketing business - for each of us!!

One of the side benefits also include lifelong friendships and networking with people you will learn to love and care about, professionally AND personally. The rewards of the deep friendship of those with the same goals as you is limitless!

"Great idea, Sandy! Even though I follow our discussions here, I got a lot out of reading the compilation because I saw some info in the (eguide) that I had either missed, or hadn't paid attention to because it didn't seem to pertain to me than. It must have taken quite a while to compile - thank you for doing it!"
