Mastermind Magic

Hey Late Night Friends,

OK -- the "SECRET SAUCE" thing was a little CHEESY (see what I did there to extend the metaphor?) LOL.

Apologies....but you have to give me a break. I'm fresh from a game-changing session with my mastermind group. These meetings always leave me energized and brimming with ideas (and silly subject lines).

For reference, here is a picture of me with the guys in San Diego a few years ago. You may recognize some these guys. We've been meeting weekly for about 10 years (crazy, I know).

Today, I want to share why I'm such a big believer in the mastermind concept, famously introduced by Napoleon Hill in "Think and Grow Rich." Hill described it as "a coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose."

Key Benefits of Joining a Mastermind

Diverse Perspectives: The range of viewpoints in a mastermind is invaluable. You're not just getting feedback; you're getting insights from people with different skills, experiences, and success stories. This diversity can lead to breakthroughs you'd never reach on your own. I had a couple of these today.

Accountability: One of the biggest challenges as an entrepreneur is staying accountable to yourself. In a mastermind, you're not just accountable to yourself, but to the group. This shared responsibility can be a powerful motivator. Huge deal for me (I am easily distracted as I have many interests).

Support and Encouragement: Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey. A mastermind group provides a sense of community. It's a place where successes are celebrated, setbacks are sympathized with, and encouragement is always available. Doing life with this guys is amazing.

Networking Opportunities: The connections you make in a mastermind can be invaluable for your business. These are people who can open doors, offer collaborations, or provide referrals. OK, so taken together, my mastermind knows tons of people in this industry. And that can be really cool.

Learning and Growth: In a mastermind, learning is a two-way street. You're not just there to get advice; you're there to give it too. This exchange of knowledge is a fantastic way to grow. Everyone in my mastermind is better at what they do that I am at what they do. Super helpful.

Reflecting on Goals and New Directions

In this latest mastermind session, I presented my vision for Late Night Internet Marketing's future - specifically. The feedback was both encouraging and eye-opening.

There's something magical about a group of like-minded individuals coming together. The perspectives, the honest feedback, and the shared wisdom are invaluable. In our session, I presented my vision for 2024 and got exactly what I asked for -- expert commentary. I also got strong support. From nuanced insights to strategic pivots, the collective intelligence of the group helped refine and elevate my plans. The challenged my ideas, offered some new strategies, and reaffirmed my direction. It's this kind of collaboration that makes masterminds so powerful.

It's not just about getting together and discussing ideas. It's about accountability, support, and a shared journey towards success. Each member brings their unique strengths to the table, creating a synergy that's hard to replicate in solo endeavors.

A Call to Action: Find Your Tribe or Coach

If there's one piece of advice I can give you, it's this: find your tribe. Whether it's joining a mastermind group or working with a coach, surrounding yourself with people who challenge and support you is crucial. They're not just advisors; they're catalysts for growth.

So, if you haven't already, seek out a group or a coach who aligns with your business ethos and goals. The right support network can propel your business to heights you've never imagined. And if you're looking for 1:1 coaching, you can always call me to see if that would be a fit for you.

Einstein's Wisdom: A Spark for Your Online Business Journey

I've been engrossed in Walter Isaacson's biography of Albert Einstein lately, and it's an absolute treasure trove of insights. One particular quote from Einstein struck me as incredibly relevant to us in the online business world:

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."

This got me thinking about how we approach our online ventures. Often, we get bogged down in the nitty-gritty of knowledge – the how-tos, the best practices, the step-by-step guides. While this knowledge is undeniably important, it's our imagination that truly drives breakthroughs in our businesses.

Why Imagination Matters in Online Business

In the digital realm, where innovation rules, imagination is your greatest asset. It's the fuel for creativity, the birthplace of groundbreaking ideas, and the catalyst for growth and change. Really, it's what separates you from the crowd and protects you from the AI onslaught. When you allow your imagination to run free, you open up a world of possibilities – new marketing strategies, unique product ideas, different approaches to solving problems, and ways to connect with your audience.

Applying Einstein’s Wisdom

As you navigate your online business journey, I encourage you to tap into your imaginative side. Dream big about what your business can be, envision new ways to engage with your customers, and don’t be afraid to experiment with ideas that might seem a little out there.

Remember, in a field as dynamic as online business, the boldest ideas often reap the biggest rewards.

To your imaginative success,


P.S. Just like Einstein revolutionized physics with his imagination, you have the power to revolutionize your business. Let's turn those imaginative sparks into flames!

And now, a kind word from our attorney. His nickname is "Killer." Not sure why. 😀

Please Read My Affiliate Disclaimer:

I believe in affiliate marketing because it gives me a way to help people profitably. From time to time, I will promote, endorse, or suggest products and/or services for sale that are not my products. I'm pretty picky and my recommendation is always based on my personal belief that the product will provide excellent value to you and your business. In most cases, I will be compensated via a commission or gift when you decide to purchase that product based on my recommendation. In some cases, I might receive the product for free for review purposes, or just to use. In many cases, I promote products that I actually use in my business (like ConvertKit, the service that sent you this email). That ConvertKit link is an affiliate link. If you sign up for ConvertKit using that link, I get a commission. Make sense?​

Here's a really important thing:

Please don't interpret anything in this email as some sort of promise or guarantee of your future earnings. My results are not typical. We've been at this for more than a decade. You could say I am an expert when it comes to online business. This means I have an advantage over most people. I can tell you this -- success takes hard work. Nothing in life or business comes easy or with any guarantees.

By following my recommendations you always agree to do your OWN due diligence before making any purchases, whether we recommend them or not. Never, EVER purchase anything that you cannot afford. Avoid purchasing products that do not have a clearly stated Guarantee, or that promises quick or ridiculous results. And always wear your seatbelt. And take your vitamins.
