354: Topic | The Value of Masterminds with Chris Harder, Dave Ruel, Nicholas Bayerle
Chris Harder, founder of For The Love of Money; Dave Ruel, effic.co; and Nicholas Bayerle, The Billion Dollar Body, share with your host, Travis Chappell, their thoughts on .
- Chris Harder
- He believes 20 people is the perfect mastermind size because it allows for diversity of opinion but also the closeness and commitment of family.
- Both Chris and Travis have started their own masterminds because of how much they believe in them.
- Dave Ruel
- What you know and who you know are both important but they have to exist within the right context for you for there to be synergy between them.
- Dave thinks the most annoying thing for a person to do while networking is to try to extract as much information as possible from a person in one meeting as if you’ll never see each other again instead of playing the long game.
- Get into conversations that have nothing to do with business to build actual relationships with people.
- For introverts, Dave suggests being strategic with who you meet and the number of people you meet because each interaction will take a lot of effort.
- The caliber of people at a mastermind will help you be strategic about who you connect with, especially if you’re introverted.
- Nicholas Bayerle
- Paying mentors and putting your money where your mouth is gets you value.
- Mentors can keep you on track as you take big swings and make polarizing, challenging decisions.
- Create a step by step game plan to utilize the power of groups and community.
- In Travis’s experience, something like door to door sales is highly secretive, and people think they can’t share their expertise because it’s akin to giving away your secrets, but if you share information in something like a mastermind, everyone benefits.
3 Key Points:
- When you find the right mastermind fit for you, it will uplevel your network and business.
- You won’t click or have chemistry with every person you meet, and that’s okay.
- Finding community is everything.
- “Last year’s mastermind, we made our money back in the first half of the first day of the year, directly from one idea that came from that mastermind.” –Chris Harder
- “When you’re too strategic about relationships, you’re not going to win at relationships. It needs to be organic.” –Dave Ruel
- “If people don’t hate you, then there’s definitely no one that extremely loves you either. There has to be a polarizing message in everything you do.” –Nicholas Bayerle
