Meet and Grow Rich – Joe Vitale – Review
I’m a big believer in the power of the mastermind – in the power of like-minded people coming together to share expertise and experience. A well-run mastermind has the potential to encourage and foster unlimited personal and professional growth among the members. Meet and Grow Rich shows you how.
When like-minds come together, the possibilities are limitless. I’m excited to share this book because I’ve experienced first-hand the power of the mastermind. Several years ago I saw this book on the shelf at our local bookstore and it reminded me of what I’d read in Napoleon Hills’s Think and Grow Rich: "Analyze the record of any person who has accumulated great fortune, and many of those who have accumulated modest fortunes, and you will find that they have either consciously, or unconsciously employed the Master Mind principle."
Meet and Grow Rich by Joe Vitale and Bill Hibbler was the catalyst for me to begin three successful masterminds and I believe it can do the same for you. After reading this book cover to cover I decided to begin a Meetup group exclusively for women who want to successfully work for themselves – that was five years ago. Today, this local mastermind has over 400 businesswomen members.
About a year later I organized a personal mastermind and it still meets via telephone once a week. Then, about three years ago I created a professional mastermind for coaching clients that combines networking among the members and my coaching. To think, all of this came out of reading Think and Grow Rich and Meet and Grow Rich. For me, Napoleon Hill explained why a mastermind was important; Joe Vitale and Bill Hibbler explained how to create a mastermind.
I share this with you because what I read in Meet and Grow Rich made perfect sense, especially to an entrepreneur working from home – it is all about like-minds coming together to share and empower.
Meet and Grow Rich is divided into two parts:
Part I consists of the basic how’s and why’s of a mastermind. You’ll find good practical information for the person looking to start a mastermind – it can be for a hobby or a business.
While reading the first ten chapters, you should probably be asking yourself if starting a mastermind is worth your time and effort. I’d say it’s worth it if you choose to make the commitment to making it a success. My mastermind groups are a big part of my marketing plan and my business and I treat them accordingly.
Here’s what is covered in Part I –
1. The history of the mastermind
2. A look at three successful groups
3. The workings of a group
4. How to get started
5. Beware of the different personality types
6. Long distance masterminds
7. Questions and answers
In Part II the chapters are written by mastermind experts who have created and run successful groups. It’s most interesting how the groups are basically the same structure but yet are so different in interest and niches. These chapters are great “been there, done it and succeeded” examples and stories of real-life successes.
I believe this quotation from the book says it all: “A mastermind group can help you reach any goal.”
I highly recommend Meet and Grow Rich because it can open your mind and spark new and fresh ideas about starting or participating in a mastermind group. I know it opened my mind to possibilities of bringing like-minded women together in an empowering and supportive environment and I'm confident it can open up potential mastermind possibilities for you too.
