“No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third invisible mind”. – Napoleon Hill

Behind every successful person is a team of support and inspiration to make things possible. This is one rule, I might actually agree that there is no exception… 🙂

When you’re collaborating in the right environment, you can’t help but think bigger and do more because:

  1. You have access to the knowledge, perspective and experience of several minds rather than just yours.
  2. You have the accountability to actually show up and make progress. It’s easy to sit on the couch and watch an extra episode of your favorite show, but if you know you have a call at 9:00am with the people you connect with every week, I guarantee, you’ll be way more motivated to get real sh*t done.
  3. We are often our own biggest limitation. We are conditioned to keep ourselves safe, so our nature is to play small, but the best way to play big and do things you never could have dreamed of doing, is to get people in your corner that see what you cannot see in yourself. When you surround yourself with people who dream for you when you aren’t able to dream for yourself, and lift you up when you are full of doubt, your possibilities can’t help but expand.

And one of the most powerful ways we know how to do this is to put a few minds together into a mastermind, hence the name, master-mind, get it?!

What the Heck is a Mastermind?

A mastermind is an accountability group that regularly meets in order to work towards a common idea, goal or mission—or to provide accountability, support, feedback and ideas to one another.  

You might even think of it as The Board of Directors for living your most awesome life! Because, by participating in the right mastermind group, you instantly elevate your possibilities as you can’t help but be far more resourceful than you could ever be alone. And, on top of that, you have a group that is voluntarily united under the same cause so you can say sayonara to the days of trying to rope your spouse into being your test subject for your ever changing ideas and projects!

At Live Your Legend, we’ve helped create over 100 masterminds for 600+ people from all across the globe, pairing people based on interest, experience, goals, time zone and availability. In the beginning, we saw groups flourish and flounder. So, through our experience over the years of of watching certain groups disband, we collected the tools to create absolutely amazing groups!

Forming the right mastermind group has the potential to change your world. However, it can also seem like a daunting task. Which is why we are here! #heckyeah

Who the Heck is it for?

A mastermind is for anyone who is looking to elevate or enhance where they are now. A mastermind group is for you if:

  • You are, have, or want to take (or re-take!) any of Live Your Legend’s courses! This is an amazing supplement!
  • You want to build a business but can’t seem to get yourself started.
  • You want to accomplish a goal (lose weight, run a race, learn a language, etc.) but can’t self-motivate.
  • You have a big mission that seems too daunting to tackle alone (cure world hunger, clean the world’s oceans).
  • You are in a career that is dissatisfying but feel like there is no way out.
  • You want to meet and be in regular contact with people with similar ideas and dreams as you (fellow entrepreneurs (or wantrepreneurs!), fitness buffs, homeschooling moms, stay at home dads, etc.).
  • You are working on a project or have built a business, but feel like you are going at it totally alone.
  • You have been talking about something for ages, but only just keep talking about it.
  • You just want to connect regularly with inspiring people.
  • You want to be a constant learner of life, and learn, grow and enhance where you are today, even if you are totally satisfied right now.

What the Heck Will I Get?

  • A Guaranteed Place into a Mastermind Group of 3-5 People: This is the most difficult part of finding and creating a successful mastermind but because we have access to a large group of interested people (versus you mailing friends and friends of friends), we can eliminate this difficult step for you! We will place you in an aligned mastermind taking into account interest, experience, time zone and availability.
  • The Ultimate Mastermind Team Workbook: A 56-page guide that will ensure your mastermind is an ongoing success!
  • 3 months of Mastermind Momentum Group Calls: A live Zoom call with Chelsea Dinsmore once/month for 3 months after the mastermind placements are made so to get you set up with all the fundamentals of mastering your mastermind, setting up rituals for success and much more.
  • 1 Mastermind-on-One Call with Chelsea Dinsmore: Chelsea will meet with your mastermind group over Zoom to work with you guys individually on building the life, career or business of your dreams.
  • Lifetime Access to Your Mastermind Group: LYL will place you in your mastermind and host a few calls to get the momentum moving, but your masterminds are a self-sustained group, meeting as you please and using our Ultimate Mastermind Team Workbook to ensure success. So this one-time fee is for the placement of your mastermind but then you have lifetime access to the group! (See dissatisfaction guarantee below!)

Dissatisfaction Guarantee: We ask that each member commit to 3 months in order to allow time to build momentum, ensure progress and navigate the cracks of working with others on building your best life. If after 90 days, you are not satisfied, we will guarantee you re-placement into one other mastermind group. We have planned quarterly enrollment periods for mastermind placements, as there is a lot of back-end work that goes into the placement process. So, this agreement will align with our enrollment periods to ensure we give you the best placement possible.

How the Heck Will it Work?

Open Enrollment: Open enrollment for the mastermind placement program only takes place on a quarterly basis so our next enrollment period will take place in late September. There are limited spaces for the amount of people we can enroll, so to ensure a spot in the next enrollment period, be sure to sign up for our waitlist, as we will let the wait listers have first dibs at a spot! 

After Enrollment:

  1. The LYL team will work behind the scenes to review all your input and data and match you with the best mastermind group for you!
  2. There will be once/month Mastermind Momentum Group Calls with Chelsea Dinsmore to ensure mastermind success among your group.
  3. Your mastermind can schedule a one-on-mastermind coaching call with Chelsea Dinsmore, where she will meet with your mastermind alone.

Note: We can only open enrollment for Mastermind Team Placement a few times a year because we take the matching process super seriously so, so be sure to join our waitlist today, to be sure you get first dibs in Fall 2018. 

One of the few things we have control over is who we choose to spend our time with. You can either choose to hang around people who pull you down and mock you for going after big goals and thinking differently, or you can choose to spend time with people who inspire you. And experience has shown us that when you elevate your surroundings, you elevate your possibilities.

So here’s to elevating yourself, your dreams, and your possibilities today!

FAQ

1. Why would I want to join a mastermind?

Studies and history show the power of a mastermind group! In Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich he brings light to The Mastermind Principle. It’s not difficult to see why when you look at the examples below:

  • The Inklings: Composed of poets and writers who helped to deliver The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings. A few of its members were C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Owen Barfield.
  • The Junto: Founded by Benjamin Franklin. There were twelve members, and they came together to discuss self-improvement, politics, theology and science.
  • The Vagabonds: Composed of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Warren G. Harding, Harvey Firestone.
  • The Chicago 6: A group of 6  who met every Saturday evening. None of them had any money when they started their mastermind. Within a few years, they were all millionaires. William Hertz and Charles Wrigley were the most successful of this group.
  • The Graham Group: More than 50 years ago, Warren Buffett began hosting an annual gathering with a few close friends in the investment space. At first, it was just a day to talk about stocks, but it soon grew into annual weekend or week-long events around the world with business leaders in all industries (including Bill Gates) to discuss ideas far bigger than just stocks.

These are only a few examples of endless mastermind alliances throughout history. But the fact that these folks became unbelievably successful is just the beginning. The power of a mastermind group allowed them allowed them to be a better version of themselves which led to world changing work!

2. I bought an LYL course, why do I have to pay an additional fee to get access to a mastermind?

We always lead with adding a way to add value anyone at LYL, and offer our Facebook accountability group absolutely free of charge, but this placement program is for the people who want to get serious about making progress. Nothing will kick your butt into gear quicker than knowing you have to show up on call every Wednesday and be accountable for what you owned up to last week. This will accelerate your progress when combined with any of courses because it’s like the Advanced Placement accountability program!

3. Why would I pay for placement in a mastermind, can’t I just do this on my own?

You absolutely can! But everyone knows that they place higher value on the investments they have made for themselves and to others. Paying for a group makes you value it higher than you ever would any free program. As if the investment in yourself wasn’t enough motivation, you also now have a group of people that are as committed as you as well! That level of commitment creates magic in and of itself.

Not to mention, many mastermind placement programs out there charge upwards of $1,500/month! So we think a limited time fee of $99.00 for the pilot program is an absolute steal, as the price will go up after this first round of enrollment.

4. How will you determine my mastermind group?

After joining the placement program, you will be sent a form to fill out that we have honed over the years of created over 100 masterminds. This will collect data on who you are, what you care about, where you are, where you would like to be, etc. and create groups of 3-5 people based off of that data. We’ve learned that having certain similarities is important, but balancing out your strengths with others’ strengths is equally as important, so we aim for a nice combination of similarity and diversity in our groups.

5. What does commitment does this require of me?

If you commit to joining a group through this process, we ask that you commit to at least 3 months of regular meetings. However, many of the groups that were formed at LYL have been meeting for years! Our Ultimate Mastermind Team Workbook gives you guidelines, but that will generally be once per week or twice a month for 60-120 minutes, depending on group preference.

6. Will I need anything else to be a mastermind member?

Often times groups will be via video conference, so we suggest Zoom or Skype, though many groups have successful meetings over the phone – and I have even been a part of masterminds that email every single week in a back and forth thread.

7. What if my mastermind is not a good fit?

Our priority is to make the best fit possible which is why we offer a dissatisfaction guarantee. We ask that each member commit to 3 months in order to allow time to build momentum, ensure progress and navigate the cracks of working with others on building your best life. If after 90 days, you are not satisfied, we will guarantee you re-placement into one other mastermind group.

We have planned quarterly enrollment periods for mastermind placements, as there is a lot of back-end work that goes into the placement process. So, this agreement will align with our enrollment periods to ensure we give you the best placement possible.

If after one re-placement, you still haven’t found a fit, we are happy to hop on the phone to discuss with you where you are having troubles and determine the best option moving forward.
