I just spent a week with my mastermind group in Chicago. They meet three times each year, always in a different city. This was my first time, and I was scheduled to present my information last on Friday, so I had plenty of time to watch the process.
Everyone has an opportunity to present their business to the group to receive feedback and to ask questions. I found myself eager to add to each discussion, giving my thoughts and recommendations for how they could improve their online business and increase their bottom line.
I wondered why I was able to see so many things in other people’s internet businesses that I couldn’t see in my own. The answer is simple; I am simply too close to what I do to see what I could change to make it better.
Think about two things with your own business. One, do you have a mentor and a mastermind group where you can share your ideas and goals? Second, does your mentor have a mentor? Make sure you are studying internet marketing with someone who is constantly learning from one of the great thought leaders in their field. Otherwise, it will be a case of the blind leading the blind.
I welcome your comments on this.
