Episode 44: What is a Mastermind Anyway - And Do You *Really* Need One to Succeed?


Let’s talk about a dirty little secret in the private practice world that no one talks about.

Running a practice can be lonely.

Suddenly you’re the one with all the freedom, all the big ideas, AND all the responsibility. It can be both really exciting and really overwhelming at the same time.

And if your practice is full it is a lot to handle.

Enter: the mastermind. :)

Have you ever heard anyone say they were part of a mastermind? Or that they were looking for one to join?  Were you wondering what the heck they were talking about?

Well let’s dive into that.

  • What is a mastermind group, exactly?
  • How do they work?
  • And do you really need one to be successful in private practice? 

That’s what we’re talking about today.

In this episode, you’ll learn…

about the strategic AND energetic purpose of a mastermind.
…some of the typical structures a mastermind group could have.
…what makes a healthy mastermind group work 
…what can mess the whole thing up for everybody.

After hearing this, if you’re looking for a mastermind group of your own, you’ll know a LOT more about what to look for - and what to avoid.

Give it a listen.
