All Things Mastermind w/Maria Dismondy and Carrie Clark

The term ‘Mastermind’ is used fairly often in the business world, but many entrepreneurs still aren’t sure what joining one of these groups entails. What is a Mastermind, and how can we use them to benefit our businesses? Why is it necessary for Mastermind members to challenge each other? How can we offer different viewpoints without offending other members in the process?

On this episode, owner of the Speech and Language Kids website, Carrie Clark, and founder and CEO of Cardinal Rule Press, Maria Dismondy, discuss what makes Masterminds so beneficial to business owners.

“Think of Masterminds as a great way to get feedback. If you’ve got other people looking at your business less regularly than you, they can see the trends and the patterns you may be missing.” -Maria Dismondy


Things We Learned From This Episode

 

1. Use Masterminds to challenge ideas (10:48 – 11:49)

Masterminds are the ideal space for ideas to be shared and challenged. We should be using our groups to help each other brainstorm our ideas in different ways. The benefit of this kind of input is ultimately creating a more thought-out product.

2. Take advantage of the different viewpoints in Masterminds (15:25 – 16:22)

Having a tight-knit Mastermind with different views allows us to narrow down ideas and options more easily. This is an important step, because it stops us from becoming overwhelmed by all the suggestions we get from like-minded people outside our groups.

3. Maintain mutual respect for all Mastermind members (20:41 – 21:51)

For Masterminds to be effective, we have to have a mutual respect for everyone in our groups. This respect makes it easier to challenge one another, without running the risk of offending anyone on a personal level.
