What is Masterminds?

There are multiple approaches and definitions to Masterminds.
Aligned with the author of the book Grow Within Reach, Napoleon Hill’s definition is: “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony. A Mastermind group is designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others.”

After leading several different settings of Masterminds groups, I see Mastermind group as a meeting of highly motivated folks who share the same common goal of encouraging and helping each other to improve.



  • Be present for the group
  • Full attendance at the session
  • Beginner’s mindset
  • No judgment
  • Plenty of curiosity
  • Listen more, ask more


the goal is to create a diverse group of leaders that provides:

  • Deeper Connection
  • Inspiration
  • Different Perspectives
  • Feedback
  • Personal Growth
  • Local Resources

How ?

Confidentiality agreement:

All group members will sign a confidentiality agreement and agree to abide by the following rules:

  • You cannot take business ideas that another member shared and use them as your own, unless you received permission from that member.
  • You cannot share what others said during and outside the meeting – each attendee is responsible to share from their own thoughts, words and feelings.
