7 Reasons to Join an Author’s Mastermind NOW!

Teamwork Team Together Collaboration Business Communication Outd A mastermind can accelerate your success in several ways. Here are my top 7:

1. Clarifies your goals. Not sure what you can accomplish in a specific time period? Whether it’s writing your book, marketing it, or using it to build an entire business, joining a mastermind helps you get very clear on what your goals are and what is reasonable to accomplish during the length of the Mastermind group (or in any leg of the group). It also can serve as inspiration and motivation if you’re even thinking of moving in the direction of writing a book!

Many author/entrepreneurs are perfectionists and this can work in your favor as far as writing great books, but it doesn’t support you if you tend to overextend yourself or expect too much of yourself. Being part of a group can help you set reasonable expectation and goals and will help remove stress and overwhelm. And it’s difficult to get anything done when you are stressed and overwhelmed. In fact, it causes your brain to freeze, and then nothing gets done!

2. Helps you overcome challenges. Having challenges with your book or in your business? Joining a mastermind gives you a place to ask for help. Everybody has challenges, but it’s easy to get stuck and stop moving forward when they seem insurmountable. And, the truth is that every time you solve a problem, it creates a new problem that can cause you to hit another wall.

Think about it.  You finished writing your ebook. Now what? You need to find someone to do a book cover and format it. Once you solve that, you need to upload it and so on. And if you don’t know how, you’ll get stuck again.  Do this enough times, and it’s easy to get tired of it and just give up!

But, when you’re in a mastermind, you’ve got a place to get resources and answers quickly so you can move through whatever challenges you’re having a lot faster than you ever could on your own.

3. Helps you focus. Do you ever get sidetracked by shiny objects?  Most people do. But, joining a mastermind will help you stay focused in two ways. First, by sharing with the group what you plan to accomplish, it sets you up to actually get it done.  And then, by having to share with the group how much you got done, after the fact, it motivates you to actually get it done.

4. Gives you inspiration. Sometimes, by seeing what others are doing can inspire you to accomplish more than you would on your own. For instance, in the last Authors Profit Incubator Mastermind group, one of the participants was using the group in conjunction with my Best-Seller eBook Launch program to keep her on track in her effort to take her book to #1 on Kindle (which she accomplished in the group). This gave another participant the motivation to move forward sooner rather than later to get ready for her own launch!

5. Gives you leverage. In a mastermind members collaborate to achieve more faster. So, rather than trying to figure out a solution to a problem on your own, you have several people putting their heads together, which leads to more creative solutions faster and more possibilities!

It also means that you can get help with your marketing. As members get to know each other, they become invested in the success of each member of the group and they become advocates for each other.  So, to go back to the participant who wanted to take her book to #1, other members helped her promote it in social media! (I helped too, and I have a community of around 20,000 with a reach, including my evangelists and influencers of  over half a million prospects!)

6. Gives you knowledge. Looking for the best information and direction. You’ll be part of an exclusive group where you can meet like-minded people who are action takers and life-long learners just like you so the quality of the experience and knowledge will be a lot higher and deeper than in other situations.

A good mastermind will be moderated by an expert who can give it to you! It’s easy to go online and Google information, but it is not always correct. And having someone there who has vast knowledge of the subject at hand with years of experience will be invaluable!

7. Gives you a bigger playing field. Being in a mastermind helps you stretch because you are surrounded by other people who are playing large; you start to think differently and believe more is possible!

Masterminds are incredibly powerful and can enrich and enhance your business as well as you personally. They are an incredibly effective use of your time and resources and let’s face it, it’s a lot more fun to work together than to try and go it alone!
