Create your very own Secret Mastermind Group - and you don't even have to ask anyone to join

by 0 comments
Mastermind groups are all the rage at the moment. I've seen threads on
here talking about them, got emails inviting me to them and a few high
profile marketers selling exclusive ones.

The benefits, I know, can be outstanding. I listened to Eben Pagan and
Frank Kern talk about their own - just a bunch of like-minded folk getting
together on a regular basis and 'raising the bar' for each other. Success
breeds success and all that.

Surrounding yourself with success-oriented people, people with similar
business aims and values seems eminently obvious to me. The easiest way
to demonstrate this would be to think of the reverse situation. Maybe
you've experienced something similar to me, maybe at some point in your
life you've had a friend that was terminally negative. Every time you'd meet
them they'd manage to bring you down and focus on what's not possible.
Their negativity would eventually rub off on you and you'd begin to believe
that you'd never achieve anything. It was just comfortable to get inside
their limiting beliefs. Thankfully, I broke off that friendship. I realised it
wasn't healthy.

That's why I'm in support of masterminds - not just for business, but for

I'm fortunate to have a mastermind group. I am part of a group of friends
who are extremely supportive of each other. We meet often, at least once
a week and chat, brainstorm and generally motivate each other.

The other mastermind group is my secret one. (Well it was until this post)
It's full of like-minded business people who are willing to help each other.
You can ask questions, give suggestions, have a laugh and make money
while you're at it. It won't come as too much of a surprise if I told you it's
here on the Warrior Forum.

Now, I'm quite new to the forum with barely 200 posts to my name,
however, even I've noticed there are some rules to make your Warrior
Mastermind successful - it's easy to mess this up and for it to become like
your negative friend.

If you're new to the forum, (or indeed even if you're more experienced)
take the time to wander about a bit. Watch how individuals interact with
each other. Make notes of people you like, you respect and maybe ask to
be their friend (Ahh!) Also make note of those negative ones, the whiners
and complainers - and avoid them.

Don't be tempted to join in the whinging threads that sometimes appear.
By all means put your point across in a discussion, but learn to walk away
if it's not constructive and not serving your own outcomes. Rest assured
that there'll still be plenty of folk that will continue the argument for you.

Have some fun too. Join in with some of the banter that goes on - it's all
part of the community and helps you become part of it too.

I'm in the early stages of forming my new 'secret' Mastermind group. I hope
you create one of you own.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
