Enjoying my week in Hilton Head, S.C. with Alan Weiss and friends!

From our “You Cannot Make this Stuff Up” department, Apple’s Steve Jobs leads the i-pack.

You see, Steve likes to respond to random customer email inquiries. When college senior Chelsea Isaacs tried reaching his media relations department five times, they never responded. Isaacs proceeded to contact Jobs directly for help….

My community keeps asking me to provide videos to generate new business growth ideas, discover new go to market strategies, and accelerate revenues.

Ten Rules for Modern Mastermind Groups

What is a mastermind group, and why should you care? They may just be the secret weapon to help you outpace your competitors and weather these stormy economic seas.

In the 1930’s, wealth expert and author Napoleon Hill defined a mastermind group as “the coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.” Well before he authored Think and Grow Rich, Ben Franklin introduced a similar model.

In 1728, at the ripe young age of 21, Franklin created a club of mutual improvement called a junto (pronounced “hoon-toe”). Franklin was struggling to grow his printing business, and knew he could not do it alone. The junto, which comprised seasoned tradesmen, a bartender, and an astrologer, gave him the boost he needed to thrive. As a side benefit, this group surreptitiously shaped public opinion.

Whatever you prefer to call these special societies, you will notice they have withstood the test of time, and have created fortunes for thousands, if not millions. Today, you can find juntos in Paris, London, New York, and parts between.

Without these strategies, you will find your products and services becoming commodities faster than the hottest song from Lady Gaga.
