I wanted to share something I learned from Napoleon Hill’s incredible book, “Think And Grow Rich.” He calls it a “mastermind team,” but that might be taking it a bit too far. Basically, he says that most successful people (he pinpoints Henry Ford) have a mastermind team, which is a small team of about 6-10 people on whom they rely for ideas and feedback on their ideas. Together, they solve the problems of the company and make decisions.
Kind of like a board of directors? No, actually. This team is not caught up in what will be best for both the company and its customers. Instead, they focus on the business alone, the new products, the innovation, and any problems that may arise. It’s kind of like a business consulting team inside the business itself. Who could be better to solve the company’s problems than the company who is closest to them in the first place?
So I think it’s a good idea to have these people accessible at all times for your own ideas, progression, and work. Choose smart people who care about you but also care about your dream. You may never find someone who is as passionate about your work as you are, but you will find people who get along with you and each other, who can think for themselves and for the group, and who can teach you things you don’t know. Knowledge is power, and there is power in numbers. People who push you forward can be hard to come by, so keep those people in your life. Keep them close.
