What Does Master Mind Mean to You
Master Mind — What does that mean to you? A few months ago, the idea of Mastermind groups was floating around in social media groups where I participate.
First thought was a vital discussion group where the members were examining their wild and crazy ideas with vigorous discussion. Even vigorous disagreement! Best if the group is crashing through the walls on a mutual project.
But, I kept hearing different approaches, so I set off my favorite solution finder — a book.
Reading reviews, examining prices, doing that all over again — led me to a small book (black) entitied “The Black Book of the Master Mind”, David K. Drews, author.
Drews uses a condensed and no frills method of defining Master Mind groups. He follows with a plan for organizing a group and offers advice about how to manage or maintain momentum in the group. There are pages of potential scenarios addressed by a master mind group along with advice from Drews from his life/business experience. There are tips that can be applied to many types of business. At Mastermind University, Drews has accumulated videos and articles of benefit to Master Mind groups
This small book does not lead you through Masterminding by the nose. It is not an outline and specific process for setting up a Master Mind group along with the management that makes the group effective. It is concise but occasionally conversational with ‘war stories’ from his own experiences. I found the stories interesting to consider. References to other business leaders who have achieved success using Master Mind techniques include Brian Tracy, Anthony Robbins, Napoleon Hill.
I came away with a different perspective for a Master Mind group. My former thoughts and understanding has more application for a Brain Storming Session. I haven’t set up a Master Mind group or joined one — the ‘fad’ was over by the time I finished the book. Should an opportunity arise to become involved in a real and serious Master Mind group, I can join and participate with more confidence and be able to maintain expectations with civility and courtesy.
I’ve always been curious to know how mastermind groups develop. It’s all about using the knowledge and support of others to change the circumstances in your life. This book is a quick read, but don’t let that fool you—it’s got plenty of information that you will find helpful for your personal development. The author provides some tips on how to start a mastermind, as well as some useful website links to refer to. There are also some bonus sections you will enjoy reading.

This book was exactly what I was looking for. It gave me a plan on how to get started in my mastermind group. The Black Book of the Master Mind also describes different perspectives on how the meeting should be run and maintaining healthy, productive relationships. I highly recommend it to everyone interested in joining or forming a mastermind group.
My goal was to create a mastermind group within a community of insurance professionals from across the country. This book mapped out everything I needed to know on how to do it successfully. I am in the beginning stages of forming the group, and in the process of framing the rules, and have started meeting together on a monthly basis. The goal is for each one of us to fulfill our life’s dreams as entrepreneurs and having such a group will enable us to do just that… And more.

Cuts to the Chase! This is a quick read that is sure to separate achievers from the parasites that the author calls “volunteers.
This isn’t a book for smoothing over differences with time wasting
morons at the office. This book says to join a mastermind group and
learn skills from a mentor, rather than hope and try to learn from
sales presentations, colleges, and people who promote very high risk
investments. This book makes me very grateful for my old mentors.
