Per Napoleon Hill, a mastermind is “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Source The LBDS masterminds are structured with a focus on accountability, execution of goals, and relationship building.
Masterminds are once a month and hosted typically in the 1st or 2nd week. The day of the week and time will be specific to each mastermind. You may view the calendar for dates.
The number of members will vary by community, however, the maximum is 6-8.
It is important to us that you are surrounded by peers who are at a similar stage in business as you. We use the information you and your peers submit on your application. This information tells us the current stage in business so we are able to compose masterminds of similar peers. Our local masterminds differ from our virtual masterminds in that we try to only have one type of profession represented. For example, (1) florist, (1) health coach, (1) graphic designer. Exceptions are made when they serve different niches. For example, (1) portrait photographer, (1) boudoir photographer, (1) wedding photographer. This is not a guarantee and we reserve the right to make changes as we see fit.
