The Top 5 Tips for Creating Your Own Mastermind Group

Many months ago, good friend, fellow entrepreneur and corporate coach Glenn Andrew lured me to the Marriott Marquis in Times Square for a casual meeting. After a few sodas Glenn popped a question: “Do you have any tips for my readers on forming a Master Mind Group?”

We chatted for a little on the subject and then I realized it required far more than light discussion, it needed a list of do’s and don’ts. I told Glenn I’d get back to him with my list.

A week later I emailed him my ideas and then forgot about it. So yesterday I get some correspondence from Glenn reminding me of what I had written down. Wow, someone actually listens to my ramblings…AND saves them! (Thank you Glenn) The results of that question are my 5 tips that have come from 30 years as an entrepreneur, business owner, board member, speaker and author.

Thank you for reading, and let me know if these points work for you.
