If there’s one thing I strongly recommend people to be part of, it’s a Mastermind Group. Besides the fact that being part of a mastermind group makes it sound very evil and cunning, it should be part of everyone’s life who is in pursuit of wealth and success. Napoleon Hill mentioned the importance of a mastermind group in his book Think and Grow Rich.
Mastermind groups exist to bring people that have the same goals together, and to encourage them to work towards a common goal. They are not just for making money or for business! You can have dentists, artists, musicians, parents and singles (just to name a few) get-together on a weekly basis to discuss issues relating to their field or lives.
The groups can be anywhere from two members up to a dozen or more. The important thing here is who is part of the group: it is quality over quantity. You can’t just bring random people into your group and expect everyone to click. Bringing in friends, while it may sound like a greatidea at first, may not always work out in the end. A mastermind group is not a friendship group. Sure, you can be friends and be part of the same team, but the purpose of the group should be apparent from the beginning before you bring people in. You must all work towards a common goal, and only bring in people that realize the potential of being in such a group.
This website is the result of weekly gatherings and discussions taken place with a mastermind group. The group had a common goal: to bring thatmoneysite.com online for the world to see, and educate people on everything money. The creators of this site shared a vision and a passion, not to mention compatibility to work together.
In the upcoming weeks, I’ll be detailing more about mastermind groups, including steps and resources to help you build a solid team.
So it’s been a while since my last post. Sarotech recently moved its offices to a bigger place (same building) so for the past month and I haven’t had the time of day to update any of my websites. The new place had to be painted from top to bottom, new flooring had to be installed as the carpet was garbage, and Ethernet had to be passed through every room. Well, after a month of work, it’s finally done. There are a few more things to do of course (need to build shelves!) but since Monday, we have officially moved and kicking business into high gear. The new place totally kicks ass and definitely makes Sarotech look like a software development company.
Last Sunday, Chloe photographed me (professionally!) with a suit on. I always wanted to be in a photo-shoot and my wish came true. I can now say that I have some great pictures of me with a suit on. 🙂 I will be posting pictures as soon as I get them from her. Thanks Chloe!
Lately, I have been brainstorming about my future and I have come to realize that I am sitting on some very expensive real-estate. For those who don’t know, it is my dad’s point of sale software: “SPOS.” It is quite possibly the most feature-filled application out there that involves making sales. Honestly, for the price you pay for the software, I consider it a steal. My dad has pretty much though about this whole system inside-out: from layaways to credit notes, it’s all there. The only few changes that are left to make this good application great is implementing some optimization routines (such as using SQL instead of large table pointers) and making it look pretty. After that, I just need to market the hell out of it and I should be set. Of course, I should also write a better manual for it… that will take some time, but a lot of the base has been done.
I can’t wait to take control of my dad’s company in the future. I am the luckiest person on this planet to do so.
