I'm looking to stand up a group of like-minded action-takers. If you're just starting in the world of entrepreneurship like I am, then you could probably benefit from being part of a mastermind group. I've heard from multiple successful business owners that they have the power to accelerate your way towards success and wealth.

I'm taking steps towards starting an information marketing business, based on the Internet Business Mastery model. My main areas of focus are copywriting, blogging, social media marketing, content marketing, publishing, and podcasting. If you're currently in this marketspace or are planning to pursue this path, reply to this thread or shoot me a PM.

Let's talk, discuss, brainstorm, and learn what's working from one another.

I'm interested too! I just finished my first VSL and I'm sure being part of such a group would help.

I'm totally interested. I'm a web developer currently executing on an idea of mine. It would be great to have some people to bounce off ideas with. Has anybody created a group on mastermindo yet or is there a good alternative?

Absolutely still happening. nickR8, the platform looks pretty sweet- I'm going to check out MasterMindo and see if it makes the most sense to use for our group. I'll post again soon after I do an evaluation of the site, and other options folks have used. Any thoughts on best practices for the mastermind? Has anyone participated in one before that was successful?

Hey @StevenFlecha sorry for the inconvenience... the site is still a little in development :D

When you sign up to the site you are automatically assigned to the "Welcome to MasterMindo" group. On April 17th we will then hold a meeting where new members can say which groups they want to join and where new groups are formed. We will try to streamline the process in the future but for now that's how it will work. You can send me a PM if you have any questions :)

Very cool. You can totally use the platform that I've co-built with @joschi (MasterMindo.com) to create a mastermind group and use our virtual conference room for video calls. It's free.

Nice idea, looks pretty cool! Do you have a progress thread here at TFF for MasterMindo?

I would like to join also. I am currently setting up auto run sites (like http://internsonly.com) that will need some age on them before they really take off, so I am deciding between a few faster moving ideas for my next project. I have a degree in marketing, work as a financial analyst during the day for a Fortune 500 company, and do web development and local SEO on the side, so I can probably offer some advice in other areas. My main "problem" is capital since I trapped myself in huge student loans. Please PM me if I can join the group.

Andur, I think it's new for most everybody in this thread. We'll figure out how to make groups that work as we go forward.

My understanding is that 4-5 folks per mastermind group is ideal. It would be helpful to have people post their areas of focus, so we can make sure the groups have a sense of common purpose.

As I mentioned, I'm focused on blogging, social media, content marketing, publishing, and podcasting. How about you folks?

@joschi no reminder system? No offense but I'd put that higher on your priority list for the site, it's simple, cheap and can be implemented within a day. No need to go full out directly with calender etc (what I would indeed def include at some point). The success of your product greatly depends on people actually showing up and using the system (activating your users; I have a friend with 10k users of his SaaS but he can't get them activated and thus his system is basically worthless where normally with a good working flow with SaaS with so many registered users you'd be making a shit load of money)

@K/P I'm focused on SEO, development, conversion and realize I need to do better / more content marketing & publishing (kinda same thing right?)

I share the same focus. I'm only two months into the FL process so I'm basically in research, self-educating mode right now with as much "process" and action-taking as possible. Newb basically.

Time zones:
I know you're just launching but I would highly recommend giving your users the option to set a publicly visible timezone.

Regarding the first meeting: Is it possible to join late?

Okay, I went ahead and made a group in MasterMindo, called the The Fastlaners:

http://mastermindo.com/groups/the-fastlaners/

Let's give this platform a try, and see if its a good fit. I'm on the East Coast of the US, GMT -4. It looks like folks are from all over the globe, so we'll have to find a time that's feasible for everyone. Right now, I'm thinking we meet once a week, on Sundays.

Feel free to go ahead and join the group, so we can collaborate. But the plan is to create a couple of groups of 4-5 people each that have a common theme. We want to keep the groups tight, focused, and accountable.

I won't be able to join the demo today, if anyone does, please post your thoughts on how it goes and your impression of MasterMindo.
