The Most Helpful, Empowering, Useful Thing I Could Possibly Give You…

…is, sadly, something that can’t be given.

But if I could, I would.

It would help you so much.

It would change your life, just as it did mine.

It would hold you accountable…

Keep you moving forward…

Help you solve problems…

Give you ideas to implement…

Change the way you look at yourself, your world, and your place in it…

Boost your confidence and your business skills…

Give you a hug when you need it, or a kick in the pants those moments when that’s what you need…

It would, almost inevitably, drive you on and on, to create more success and prosperity for yourself.

But I can’t give it to you, nobody can.

So what is this mysterious ‘thing’ that can’t be given?

A small, committed, loving group of ambitious, non-complainer, action-taking friends.

The kind of people who get what you’re trying to do, who understand what you’re building.

People who see through false and limiting beliefs, and gently call you out on them.

Friends who are as ambitious and committed as you are, to creating the life you want, and the money that goes with it.

People who never say ‘Yes but…’ when an idea or suggestion is presented, but have the correct attitude, the one that says ‘Ok, but how…’

People who take action, make things happen, and persist instead of throwing in the towel.

They say ‘show me your friends and I’ll show you your future’, and ‘we’re the sum of the 5 people we spend most time with’ and there’s a lot of truth to that.

Which is why I wish for everyone to have a TEAM of friends, helping each other and sharing freely from their experience and expertise.

But, you can’t give people friends.

(Would be pretty weird, to receive a parcel on your doorstep with a nice bow on it, and out pops somebody’s friend).

What you can do however, is create a group of people like that.

Surround yourself with a small team of makers, do-ers, action-takers.

Gather weekly, and each week give one person the spotlight.

That person explains where they’re at, what they’re aiming for and where they’re stuck…

And then the rest of the team unleashes the cumulative intelligence of the group on whatever issue needs dealing with.

This is exactly what a Mastermind group is about, and I assure you:

Being in one will change your life.

The first one I was in did exactly that, until the group disbanded for various reasons.

The Mastermind I’m in now does it too.

Incredible the effect it has, and all the others say so too.

So here’s my recommendation for you, today:

Build yourself a mastermind. Honestly.

Because I can’t give you the group of friends that drive you on.

What I can give you however, is an invitation to apply for membership to The Cabal.

It’s a small, powerful and intimate group of exactly the right people.

I know that because I interview each applicant, to make sure we get the most powerful group possible.

Part of the Cabal is a private forum, where you get to discuss topics related to business – an important part of a Mastermind.

Another part is weekly group coaching, where I’m not the boss or the leader, but instead facilitate the mastermind/spotlight conversations.

And, the third part is live 1 on 1 coaching in front of the group.

The Cabal… man how I love that name.

So, do you think you’d be the right person for such a group?

Do you take action, create solutions, help others, accept help?

If so, The Cabal for Business might be right for you.
