One of the biggest things I see with entrepreneurs in February is that they typically get into a funk. They set lofty goals maybe in January that still aren’t really coming to fruition or they’ve already backed out of the resolutions they’ve set and for whatever reason get into a funk about business stuff or personal (which in turn affects their business too).

Some of the things that can put us into that funk include:

  • Realizing that what we’re doing to grow our business isn’t working
  • Having negative people around you and saying unsupportive things
  • Not having the funds to invest in or do the things you KNOW you need to do
  • Just plain NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO

I did a little poll on Facebook recently along with asked some friends, peers and clients: “What do you do when you get into a funk”?

Here are 20 Ways I found or that came up in that poll that could help you when that FUNK hits you too:

  1. Pray
  2. Say some positive affirmations
  3. Read a chapter in an inspirational book
  4. Get out into nature
  5. Pamper yourself with a massage or pedicure
  6. Call a supportive friend, peer or mentor
  7. Read thank you notes, letters and cards
  8. Review the testimonials of your clients on your website
  9. Watch an inspirational video on YouTube
  10.  Shift your plans or appointments for the day and go do something fun or play instead
  11.  Get to a networking event to socialize and brainstorm with others
  12.  Set a NEW goal and take some action towards it
  13.  Get hugs
  14.  Exercise
  15.  Nurture yourself on the inside
  16.  Take a nap
  17.  Wallow in it all for a little bit – set a timer for just how long and feel it
  18.  Get a caffeine fix
  19.  Straighten your office, get organized
  20.  Watch a funny movie

Last week I wrote an article about WHY you should consider joining a Mastermind program.  This week I am going to go over what makes a TRUE mastermind and how to know the difference.

THE #1 REASON I started my own mastermind program for my clients is because being in these types of programs for me was the single best thing that catapulted my business so fast in the last few years. I wanted to offer that same type of accelerated learning, access and support to a select group of entrepreneurs like you who want to get where you want to go FASTER as well. It’s a great program to offer if you like to work closely with your clients in a small group but it’s also a way to transform your business and do it quickly.

Aren’t all Mastermind groups the same? NNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!

To me, a true mastermind is NOT:

·         A group of over 15 people

  • More self-learning modules in the program than one-on-one access with the lead Mentor
  • Being coached by the lead Mentor’s co-coach, not the lead Mentor themselves
  • A program where you don’t feel like someone is truly ‘with you’ working on your business all year long (Trust me, I had this issue in one of the masterminds I was a part of and I didn’t feel like my Mentor cared too much about me or what I was doing in my business hence the advice I got was not always in my best interest.)

A true mastermind to me IS:

  • A group of 4-15 like-minded entrepreneurs who are there to give as well as receive.
  • Working hand in hand with your mentor to achieve the big goals and big picture dreams for you and your business and having a good amount of monthly access to them one-on-one
  • Feeling like you are a part of a family who truly cares about you, who inspires and loves you and who would do anything for you (and people you stay in touch with for years after your group experience is over.)

Either you absolutely know you want to get into ONE of these programs and you are deciding NOW which one you will join…..

Or you aren’t sure if this is the next step for you and your business, it’s a big investment and you’re not sure HOW it will pan out if you do it; meaning what will the return on investment be?

This is a common question but very hard to answer because it will depend on you. It will depend on if you get into the right program for where you are now in your business and then how you commit to the group and to yourself to working the program for all it has.

What it all comes down to is how do you most like to learn and how are you most productive?

You have to know your best learning style so you choose and invest in the programs and products that fit you and how you best learn so you don’t waste your money.

I, for example, am NOT a good product learner.  I don’t have good luck purchasing a home study kit or other listen to/read type of product and then actually sitting down working my way through it. It will sit on my shelf forever unless I pass it on to an assistant to read and learn and then THEY can implement whatever it is or give me the ‘cliff notes’.

Instead, I learn best by working one-on-one with a Mentor who’s doing what I want to do or going where I want to go. You know…

  • Someone who’s still in the trenches themselves.
  • Someone who’s investing in themselves as they ask me to invest in them.
  • Someone who’s learning from other big thinkers and money makers so that knowledge will trickle on down to me as well.

I learn well in a workshop atmosphere too but then if I don’t quickly act on the information I learn, it just sits on my shelf once again. Having a Mentor and true Mastermind group to hold me accountable, help guide me in all my big ideas and implementation is truly the glue for me that holds my business together while it accelerates at the speed of light from one level to the next, and the next, and the next.

Do you learn best by teleclasses, group trainings, workshops and online self-administer recordings and interaction or do you need or want more one-on-one mentoring, advice, guidance, resources, feedback and recommendations from your mentor or coach?

That’s where your decision should lie in whose mastermind or coaching program you should join.

You want to go where you’ll have the best experience, implement the most, learn and achieve the most and feel the most supported.

I woke up this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep without writing this because I think it’s so important…this was confusing to me a few years ago too when I first started joining mastermind programs and high level coaching programs.

Many of you are probably confused with all the coaching and mastermind options out there right now…you’re confused as to which one is right for you and if it’s even the best next step for you right? They are a big investment, not only in yourself but in the direction of your business too so you want to make the RIGHT DECISION on which one to join.

First of all, WHY should you want to join a Mastermind group or coaching program?

It’s simple really and most of us who’ve been in them would say it was the best thing we EVER did in our business (and that’s the truth).

Being in a Mastermind Group, like my Live Big Mastermind for example, can give you:

1.  An influx of new ideas, strategies and fresh perspectives for your business. Sure you can come up with plenty of ideas on your own but will you know which ones to act on, spend money on or how to turn those ideas into big money paydays all on your own? Having a focused group of entrepreneurs and a lead mentor who can see bigger visions for you, additional opportunities and wider possibilities helps you put your big ideas into reality much faster and with more surety.

2. Motivation and positive powerful thinking. The greatest challenge a business owner may face is staying positive and motivated on a day-to-day or month-to-month basis. We need to surround ourselves with highly motivated, energized and positive BIG thinking like-minded entrepreneurs constantly or we can easily lose steam. What happens when you lose steam? You don’t make a lot of sales right? You don’t attract a lot of clients easily do you? Instead, working with and interacting with your Mastermind group and lead mentor on a regular basis can clear those negative thoughts and replace them with positive, motivating, inspired and passionate thoughts and actions.

3.  Accountability and responsibility. One of the most difficult things for many of us entrepreneurs is to actually ‘get stuff done’. We do have many ideas like I mentioned but we don’t always know how to put them into money-making plans, products, programs, etc. and even if we KNEW HOW to get them implemented, we have no time so they still don’t get done, am I right? Your Mastermind group can help hold you accountable to your goals and project timelines plus provide a certain level of competition that will motivate many entrepreneurs to make sure they had their ‘thing’ done before coming to the next meeting.

4.  A big leap in time. In an era where time is money, we have to learn double the things in half the time. By connecting with peers and a lead mentor in a Mastermind group who have similar experiences, you tap, learn and benefit from others’ input. Especially learning from a Mentor who has been where you are and is now leaps ahead of you, they are where you want to be; it makes sense to learn what to do and NOT to do directly from someone who’s been there, made mistakes and then had successes, who can show you the right path for you. This greatly shortens your learning curve by a huge margin.

Trust me, I lucked out when I first started joining these types of programs because the mentors I chose were just starting out with these types of programs themselves pretty much and their fees were still very low compared to what they are today (although still a big stretch for me at the time).

Next week I’ll be going over whether all Masterminds are the same or not and easier ways to choose the right one…you won’t want to miss it!
