Clermont, Florida (Orlando Area)

by 86 comments
July 2013 update: I've stopped doing these due to lack of time and participation. If you're still interested in meeting up, feel free to use this thread as a tool to facilitate that.

Hello my fellow Floridian Warriors,

I'm really hoping to meet some fellow warriors, and create a great mastermind group.

Who?

Any level of experience is acceptable, as those with more experience can help those with less and probably learn a thing or two themselves. The only real requirement to start off is to be able to show up.

What?

A mastermind is a group that meets on a regular basis to help each other out, and hold each other accountable for taking action towards their success.

When?

The First Friday ad Third Friday of the month. Starting at 6:30 PM, ending when it seems appropriate. I don't want to waste anybody's time.

Where?

Eventually, I'd like to meet in my house, so there is no excuse for not having a place. However, to start, the Panera in Clermont is a good place as it has wireless internet. This is a neutral territory for us to meet and see if we are compatible for a mastermind.

Why?

To focus on marketing (there will be offline marketers there, too), help each other, and hold each other accountable for taking action towards achieving our goals.


How?

Show Up!


If you have a portable computing device, feel free to bring it.

Something I bring to the table that might be useful and different is that I'm certified as a hypnotist. I could hypnotize the members of my mastermind to be more successful and overcome any subconscious barriers.

Thanks for your time, I hope to meet you in person.

    No warriors other than myself showed up. I'm not upset, because I was not expecting much this time due to short notice and it being Good Friday. I did have someone I got in contact with from meetup.com show up, and we had a productive conversation. I'm planning to have the next one on the third Friday of this month. As a mastermind group, we are focussing on marketing.
    I'm looking for others who are interested in meeting like minded people to help each other achieve their dreams and goals.
    I look forward to meeting on Friday, April 20 at 6:30 PM.

      Hey Jim, I'm interested but will be unavailable on Friday unfortunately Let me know when the next one is and I'll try and make it. Usually Tues/ Thurs works better for me but will try and arrange some things for a Friday. Good luck and hope this builds. I could really use some help from guys who get IM. Got a great product to sell but IM is still to greek to me.

    Another disappointing turnout at Panera. Next time I'll have to have better signage.

    May 4th will hopefully be better.

    Any luck getting people to show up? I'll try to drop by one later in May (busy early month coming up).

    Definitely wouldn't mind being able to help out Warriors in person.

    Hi Joe,

    Not much turnout so far, but I'm working on it. I did have a few close friends show up, but they are not interested in marketing or internet marketing. Oddly, it is a little like trying to get your first online money, you have to keep at it. At the very least, I hope to be able to meet you. Thanks for your interest.

    You thought of linking to this thread in your sig? Most don't look down here so will never know about it. I only found the thread because I was about to enter the OT forum and saw something from Florida.

    Hi Jim,
    Clermont is far from me since I am in Daytona Beach area. If you are interested we can form a skype group and communicate. My skpe Id is vj-shah. Is anyone else in florida interested please add me in your skpe.

      It's only twice a month and not too bad of a trip. Perhaps we can make it at an easier location for everyone to get to? That would be the advantage of getting some more Floridians in here and getting a commitment to come: we can change the venue if necessary to suit the group.

      Can't do it without a group though :p.

    Jim, when I update my sig at some point today I'll add a link to this thread as well. I'll send 'em to you, and you get them organized :p.

    I'm not averse to skype either; but I like the face to face interaction, it's an easier teaching environment in my opinion. Plus, if we stick to a venue like Panera, food .

      I'm in total agreement. As you've probably noticed, I've updated my own sig with a link to this thread.

      I know it's a bit of a drive, but you'd be welcome to join us. If you take the turnpike, it's probably not too bad.

      Alternately, you could try starting your own thread and see if there is any interest in an Ocala mastermind or meetup. (You could also check meetup.com to see if there is anything of interest there.) I already checked to see if there was an existing thread for Ocala on the WF, but there isn't.

      Either way, I wish you much success.

    Hey Jim,

    I will be checking back periodically. I am in Cocoa Beach. Mad drive to Clermont, not to mention I-4 (yuck). A skype group would be awesome. Add me in.

    P.S.- The main reason I want to attend is to meet Joe Robinsons mentor Po Stobinson (if Joe can talk him into it)- that guy ROCKS!

      I feel your pain on the I-4 thing as well as the drive. I'm pretty sure Joe said he won't be making it this Friday, but hopes to make it on the third Friday ( the 18th)

      I'm working on figuring out the skype thing. I just joined skype, so I'm not totally up to speed just yet. (I know, I'm THAT guy) I'll try to add you to my iPhone's skype, so if nothing else, you might be able to attend virtually (if I figure it out. LOL)

      I'm looking forward to meeting some great folks this Friday (4th) and two weeks from Friday (18th) at Panera in Clermont. Plan on 6:30 - 8:00, but we'll play it by ear it it seems like we're done earlier. I don't want to waste anyone's valuable time.

      Here's to our mutual success!

      Er...yeah. I'm sure I could get Stobinson to come .

      Anyone who wants to can add me on Skype as well (button's right over there on the left lol). I'm only on sporadically throughout the day; but can make time if that is how we decide to group up.

    I still own my house in Casselberry and am hoping to get back there this year. In California now, but miss Central Florida.

    I will keep tabs here so I can connect.
