Asking your networking buddies is another possibility, but often you don’t want your idea ‘out there’ before you’re ready to launch it properly – you certainly don’t want someone else pinching it!
This is where joining a Mastermind group can be a good solution. You’re with a small group of your peers, you all agree to keep discussions confidential, and you probably get the greatest feedback available anywhere!
Not only that, belonging to a Mastermind group will help you move forward on your idea because of the regular meetings or calls, the other members will provide support and encouragement, as well as suggestions for when you get stuck. You can tap into years of precious business experience and find out what worked for others before taking action yourself.
Of course, you do need to be prepared to take your turn at helping out your fellow group members. But even that can still be a rich source of inspiration for your own business, as well as being very satisfying on a personal level.
My own Mastermind groups provide all the above, with the added bonus of mentoring from me! The next group starts on 24 September and runs for 6 weeks.
If you have an idea for your business, get it off the ground quickly by joining us (more details here).
