[Affilite World Conferences] How To Create Your Own Powerful Online Mastermind Group

Our friends from Affiliate World sharing tons of nuggets:

“The idea behind a mastermind group was first brought mainstream by Napoleon Hill in his book “The Law of Success” in the 1920’s, then later elaborated on “Think and Grow Rich” in 1930.

He defines it as the following…

“The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”

He continues…

“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind] .”

Here are the main benefits of starting a mastermind:

1. You share skill sets
2. You hold yourselves accountable
3. The spiritual component (you open up to more novel ideas)
4. Avoid pitfalls
5. Add value for others

This lengthy piece then goes on to show you (in great detail) how to structure, organize and build your mastermind.

FEATURED STM THREAD:
Announcing The COVID-19 Think-Tank Section

With Corona & Covid19 all over the news, it’s kinda natural that a lot of the current discussions on STM reside around this hot topic. Covid related threads are popping up left and right, so in order to stay organized and provide as current information as possible, we created aCovid-19 Think Tank section on the forum.

None of us is happy about the current situation, but life has to go on, so we all need to follow the trends, identify the declining parts of the affiliate business and focus on what’s working right now. The Covid section has been created just a few days ago, but there is already about a dozen threads that provide insights on verticals that keep on rocking, as well as those that show a sign of decline.

And that’s not all! Wondering how to survive this extraordinary situation? Amy just posted a super informative thread, outlining all the details and steps you should take in order to keep your business afloat.

Wondering what the forum members are doing during the lockdown? We got a thread for this too! Some are cooking, some are homeschooling their kids, some take remote yoga classes and some invest in stocks! 🙂

If there is one thing you need to remember about this crisis it’s that you’re not in it alone. We’re all affected. Now is the time to stick together as a community and support each other. Don’t get depressed my friends, your friends on STM are here to hear you out!
