  In this fourth episode, I share the story of my first ever experience hosting and facilitating a paid mastermind group.  I made so many mistakes during this first experience. I share those mistakes with you in hopes that I might inspire you to avoid making them. While I made many mistakes in my first experience with paid mastermind groups, the mastermind principle did not fail.  In fact, you'll hear how the Podcast Mastermind played a role in the successful launch of the Entrepreneur On Fire Empire created by John Lee Dumas.   I have other podcasts that might be of interest to you.

In this episode, I share a conversation that I had with Pat Flynn eight years ago.  Pat had joined me to celebrate the 300th episode of my Podcast Answer Man podcast back in March 2013.  In this episode, you'll discover how Pat and I first met and hear how we made the decision to join forces in an official mastermind group alliance that began on October 8th, 2010. Listen now to hear the story of how a single, 60-minute, meeting of our mastermind group helped lift me out of a season of depression and burnout, inspired a way of generating $16,000 in revenue within four weeks and how that lead to over 1 Million dollars in sales from a single stream of revenue within my business. We started our mastermind group just over 11 years ago now. Pat and I still meet together, ever week, along with four other amazing members of what we call the Green Room Mastermind Group. I hope that you are able to discover all the gold that can mined out of our conversation. This podcast is all about helping you develop and benefit from a fuller understanding of the power behind the Mastermind Principle and Healthy Mastermind Group Alliances.

In this opening episode of the Upgrade Your Peer Group podcast, I share an introduction to my overall story of how I made the transition from the “Mindset of an Employee” to the “Mindset of a Self-Employed Business Owner.” I could have never succeeded in such a radical transformation in my life had it not been for my understanding of the need to “upgrade my peer group” to those who believed in my ability to succeed in this endeavor. I only succeeded in closing one chapter of my life and boldly proceeding into the next chapter as a result of my upgraded peer group, who were willing to commit to my success in this transformation.
