I’m a huge fan of masterminds so I created my own called the
Conversion Optimization Mastermind. Last year I joined the awesome mastermind group Fire Nation Elite from Entrepreneur on Fire. Joining this mastermind really changed the game for me. Leaders like John Lee Dumas and Kate Erickson are blazing the path for many entrepreneurs. I’m here to encourage you to create your own. It takes a lot of work, but it will help you get further faster. Then connect with other groups so we can meetup at an upcoming Podcast Movement conference, geek out and have drinks. Check out the photo from my last mastermind meetup during Social Media Marketing World in San Diego.
What is a mastermind?
Most people know about it from the famous book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. A mastermind is group of two or more people that work in perfect harmony for the attainment of a definite purpose. This is the principle by which you may borrow and use the education / experience of others to give you protection against failure.
Featured Mastermind Groups
Here are some other great mastermind that you should consider. I highly recommend each of them.
The best decision I made in 2013 was to join this group. I have met some amazing people and we pushed each other way outside our comfort zones. This is the mastermind from John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire. It is well worth the money and glad to have met some amazing people from there.
This is the mastermind group from the Side Hustle Nation podcast, Nick Loper. He is an experience online entrepreneur and great guy. If you are trying to leave your corporate job I would suggest his group for sure.
Grow Your App Business with a Community from Mobile App Chat, the great podcast and membership site from Steve P. Young. This is a great group to join if you want to build, market or promote your ios or android app. Check it out.
I personally have not seen my business grown this much this fast in such a short amount of time since joining a mastermind such as Michael Oneal’s Solo Lab. Everything from the group collaboration, to the weekly Google hangouts and even the private calls have been VERY instrumental in taking me to that next step. The only regret I have is not doing something like this from the very start!

Other groups from top podcasters:
This is the coaching and online group from Nick Unsworth. I do not really know anything about it but he always delivers great content. The Firestarter membership looks to be a great program to improve your business. If you are a member, please leave Nick a testimonial in the comments below.
This is the online group from the Lewis Howes. He has a great podcast also called School of Greatness. I was able to see him speak at the New Media Expo and he delivered great talk with Chris Brogan. Are you a member? Post a comment…

Testimonial for Conversion Optimization Mastermind
“I got a lot out of this mastermind before I attended my first meeting. Alex, as well as others in a group, have reached out to me on a personal basis and in the Facebook group to help me with issues I was having, even when I didn’t ask them to. Everyone in the group is very supporting of each other. It’s like I have many people mentoring me, and I also have a chance to mentor others. What I really like about the mastermind is what I learn. I learn an abundance from the advice I’m given about my projects I’m working on, but I really get to sharpen the skills I already have when someone else has a question about what they’re working on. When I get to help others in the group, I share knowledge I already have in a unique way, but sometimes I have to look up additional information, which leads to me increasing my expertise and knowledge in my particular business niche. It is one of the best things I’ve ever invested in, and the only thing I regret is that I did it sooner.”
