Power of the Master Mind

Power of the Master Mind

Power of the Master Mind This is the fifth and last blog post in the series based on Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, and today we focus on the power of the master mind, which is the ninth step in the 13 steps to success. Being a member of a master mind, peer-mentoring, or co-mentoring group is important because as they say, ‘two heads are better than one.’ Imagine the benefits when you have five or so people to brainstorm with or bounce ideas off.
