Today I want to talk about masterminding and networking… and why it’s critical to you in any walk of life.
You see, you are the average of the people you spend the most time with.
That means if you hang with people who don’t challenge you, your standards, skills, experiences and expectations will gravitate to the average of theirs.
Consequently, if you hang with people smarter than you, more experienced than you, hungrier than you, wiser than you and more accomplished than you…
You’ll gravitate upward.
It’s simple psychology.
As humans, we model people. When we are young, we model our parents. When we get older, we model our friends, teachers, mentors and possibly even co-workers.
All the traits you have today were modeled from the people you have spent the most time with.
If you want to raise your standards in anything, hang with people you aspire to be.
That’s why I go to marketing masterminds.
I’m not a marketer, though I’m massively more accomplished now than when I first started attending masterminds four years ago.
I’m a dealmaker. I needed to gain the marketing chops to achieve the massive goal I had set…
To transform a broken business-buying industry by connecting thousands of buyers with the millions of sellers struggling to exit their businesses in a dignified way.
I needed to spread my message, my skills, my tools and my business buying system — so I needed to learn marketing.
Events like masterminds raise my game in real-time.
A couple weekends ago, I was hanging with my Todd Brown Top One Mastermind tribe in Orlando, Florida.
I had 40 seven- and eight-figure marketers do a deep dive on my business and empower me with their knowledge and insights on how to push it forward.
