Grow Your Business With The Power of a Mind Pt1

Business Growth

By Marc Ford, Coach, Author and Editor at YBKBS

“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”

John Holmes

And he’s right.

Simon Sinek, the speaker and author of ‘Find Your Why’ has discussed two types of leader, and therefore in my opinion, two types of business…

The finite business and it’s leader is all out for itself and wants to beat everyone and anyone.

The infinite business continues to grow and serve it’s clients and customers because it not only genuinely wants to help them, but it also helps those around them.

The infinite business and it’s leader makes real differences to their customers lives…

…their employees lives…

…and their own lives.

And one of the secrets of their successes is collaboration. Talking with and helping other businesses and their owners be the best versions of themselves.

I’m Marc Ford, Coach, Author and Editor at Your Best Kept Business Secret and let’s talk how Mastermind groups could change you, your small business and your life….

When I first joined a Mastermind Group I was a little concerned that I would not have as much as some others to contribute to the group but it soon became clear I had skills and experience that others did not and vice versa. 

The common theme was that we were there to share and help each other and there is something quite amazing about witnessing a business problem solved by the group!

So here are 6 reasons to consider either joining or maybe even starting your own Mastermind Business Group…

1) Create deep and lasting connections with incredible people

The life of an entrepreneur can be lonely – Sharing your dreams, aspirations and challenges with a group of like minded individuals makes it a lot less lonely! 

You will naturally raise your game as you spend more time in the company of these like minded entrepreneurs – plus of course the average of the five people you spend the most time with will change – for the BETTER!

2) To Challenge Yourself

A Mastermind Group will challenge you to grow your business to its fullest potential. 

In day to day business activity it is easy to get side tracked and way led – with a Mastermind Group you will keep on track.

3) Accountability

At the end of each meeting you will have an action plan, objectives you need to meet before the next meeting – which the Group will hold you to account for. It takes real discipline to succeed in any small business. 

Being held to account by your mastermind colleagues ensures you maintain the disciplined behaviour necessary to succeed in your business.

4) Brainstorming

Share your ideas and alternatives within your Mastermind Group. 

If you are not sure what to do next, what direction to go in, the collective power of the Mastermind will kick in and get you back on track!

5) Mastermind Feedback

Receive feedback from successful individuals on how to solve business issues. Perhaps you have staff issues or financial challenges – let the Mastermind help you resolve them. 

Remember in the group we all have the same goal – to help each other grow their business. There is no hidden agenda – everyone is on the same side.

6) Mastermind Support

Sometimes business is difficult and the challenges can seem overwhelming. Perhaps you have a difficult employee or a legal problem – chances are your Mastermind colleagues have experienced the same issue. 

You will never be short of alternative suggestions on how to overcome issues. Additionally you will develop deep and meaningful friendships over above all the business help.

So take a minute. Have a think.

What benefit could a Mastermind group have to your business? 

How could it grow?

Where could it go?

Loneliness For Business Owners – a Silent Killer?

Being self employed and running your own business can be one pf the greatest thing you can do for yourself and your family in your life. It can open so many doors, so many opportunities and lead to a legacy that your friends, family and customers will benefit for years to come. But it’s also one of the loneliest places on earth too…it could be one of the deadliest things we don’t talk about.

So when I see self-appointed experts posting nothing but these shallow platitudes, using them to sell absurdly expensive programmes or online courses that will undoubtedly contain more of the same, I can’t help but see it as a form of preying on people at a time when they are already vulnerable.
