The 22nd Note Mastermind
38:38 · 2019
It’s always a great thing the day after a Note Mastermind. We had about 40 people coming in and spending time with us, 40 plus when you figure in the vendors. They came to Austin and spent Friday, Saturday, Sunday with us working on each other’s businesses. We were working to identify solutions to problems that we’re having, new vendors, doing the best that we can to help each person that came in, whether it was their first, their eighth, tenth, third or whatever. Mastermind means helping them take their businesses to the next level. One of the biggest things, when you have a great mastermind, is it has to be about those attending not about the person hosting it. That’s the thing I’m always excited about. Steph did an amazing job as well with bookings and getting everybody scheduled. She did an amazing thing with goody bags for everybody. There are lots of stuff; water, Perriers, candy and snacks for everybody.
I’m always humbled when people come in from all across the country to spend a couple of days with us. It’s still crazy to look back how far we have come since we started this back in 2010, 2011. There’s a first one in 2012, but it’s the 22nd time that we’ve done this. The average size is 40 to 50 usually. We’re right at about the same thing. It’s great because we had people that were brand new and all people are seasoned. I have to give a big shout out to all our people that have been before who shared with the new people, people like Dan Deppen or Paul Cooper or Laura Blunk or Wylea Griggs, Jeffrey Wolfe. I know I’m forgetting a few people, but it’s great having people that are coming and hanging out. There were many people from the East Coast to the West Coast and in between. From San Francisco like Steve Lindstrom, the people that came in from Boston, New York, Queens and stuff like that.
I look at the nuggets because I asked everybody to take a little bit of time to share some of their favorite nuggets from the event. What my biggest nugget is when I walk in on a Monday morning here and my email is full of comments, questions and posts from people who were there and attended who absolutely loved it. That’s my big thank you to those for sharing. We had a great time with some great photos. Great networking is always a great thing. The nugget is where I like to see what people liked. What did they take away? What was the a-ha moment the morning after? One of the things I heard over and over again from people is they come into Austin, spent time with us in the mastermind and they get rejuvenated. Life is not the easiest thing.
The world is not the easiest thing. A lot of us get bogged down in different things, especially if we’re doing multiple things whether you’re working a full-time job or you’re a full-time real estate investor. A lot of people get bogged down in the day in and day out grunt and coming into Austin they get rejuvenated. They get excited, re-motivated to go out and do some new stuff in their note business. It shows quite a bit there. Kudos to everybody who did that. One of the great things I like seeing as I mentioned before is the a-ha nugget because that helps me be a better educator and maybe a better coach for our mastermind, for our Note Nation out there as well. It’s great to see people taking it and running with it already. We’ve talked a little bit about geomarketing using Instagram and Facebook. It was great seeing Liza Banaag and this is her second mastermin
