Mastermind groups

“Real knowledge is to know of one’s ignorance.”

Why join the EBS Mastermind Program?

It is based on the assumption that no-one person has all the answers and a group of collective individuals will have more knowledge and experience than any one individual.

Mediated and directed by a trained Essential Business Services Professional, each meeting follows an agenda which will allow the following outcomes for every member:

• Advanced business training
• Increased personal accountability, business focus and clarity
• Increase in sales and profit
• Improved decision making and business confidence
• New business partners and cross-promotion opportunities
• Help other business owners to grow their businesses
• New business ideas
• Ongoing business support


Seven reasons to join our Mastermind Program

1. You'll be part of an exclusive community
Joining a mastermind typically involves you being invited by the members or going through an application process. The other members need you just as much as you need them, so your previous experience and knowledge is crucial to all involved.

2. Board of Advisors
Once you are involved in a mastermind, that feeling of "being alone" while running your business is gone. The other members of the group turn into business advisors of sorts and vice versa.

3. Collaboration is the name of the game
You may find someone in the group that is a perfect fit to work on a project with you. Or, you may be the perfect person to help another member as well. The group works together collaboratively, to achieve more together.

4. Extend your network
Joining a mastermind expands your network exponentially and rapidly. If you are in business, you know how important your network is. By joining a mastermind, you instantly add to your network and typically gain the networks of those in the group with you.

5. New learning
Everyone in the mastermind has unique skills, experiences and connections. By interacting and sharing your challenges, it's almost certain that someone in your mastermind will have a solution for you and you may also be able to offer a solution, connection or tactic to help another in the group. As part of the monthly meeting an Essential Business Services professional will also conduct group training in the following areas: Sales, Communication, Staff Management, Leadership, Body language, Time Management, Systems within your business, Inventory management, Marketing, Public speaking and many more.

6. Cross-promotion
When you join a mastermind, you will most likely find ways to help each other by utilising cross promotion. Finding ways to help each other through promoting to your respective networks.

7. Think bigger
Being in a mastermind will truly give you a Master Mind! You can't help but think bigger and stretch beyond your boundaries when surrounded by amazing people doing amazing things.

Does it matter what type of business industry I am involved in to attend a group?

Absolutely not.

We often mix businesses from various industries. It allows the cross-pollination of ideas between different industry groups, which can be highly beneficial, as well as to avoid any competition between similar businesses.

In many cases, most industries are set in their ways and follow very similar modes of operation. Opening the door or lifting the lid on what works in different industries can lead to innovation in others. We value this sharing of methodology and ideas as it can create surprising and valuable discoveries.
