How to Start a Mastermind Group. Jen Louden + I Jam on the Power of Your People.
You need people. You can’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t do it alone. Anywhere worth getting to will take a cast of caring, lucid, master minds beside you.
Everything I’ve accomplished has had inner circle support — high-minded, big strategy, sleeves-rolled up kind of support. No secrets, souls-bared, nuts and bolts hashing it out. Late nights in living rooms, emergency cellphone calls on street corners. Power advice by texts. Three-day retreats with coloured pens, calendars out and red wine. You get the idea.
What’s more, not only have my masterminds helped me hurtle myself through space with their genius input, but my capacity to be of service to them has kept me sharp and sincere — feeling useful and alive. Reciprocity is the engine of sustained greatness.
I’m so passionate about the power of brain trusts and pragmatic cheerleading squads, I wrote an entire session on it in THE FIRE STARTER SESSIONS: SUPPORTING CHARACTERS. So when Jen Louden told me she was running a new program simply called, How To Start Your Own Mastermind Group, I applauded. Literally. “Jenny Bee! What a GRRREAT idea!” So here we are shaking our Masterminding poms poms in this video:
Jen has been in a brain trust for six years with the likes of Michael Bungay Stanier, Mark Silver, Molly Gordon, Michele Lisenbury Christensen and Eric Klein. Whatta power group. Jen is a Teacher’s Teacher — first class and qualified to get you on your own path, with the illimitable power of a brain trust.
