One of my deepest joys, the lights in life, is to have fast-moving, challenging conversations with people smarter than me. This has been a chronic and historical problem in my life because it very rarely happens. So, I decided to host a mastermind for both Business and Philosophical Development purposes, and the local Chamber of Commerce wanted to get involved. It turns out that way more people were interested than I originally anticipated, and I had to build multiple different groups and structure each around. Thankfully, I was the only one who had a total list of the participants and definitely handpicked the best people to be in the group I was in.
The groups lasted for about 18 months or two years, each one ending for different reasons. Thankfully, my group lasted for about three years, and we still bat around ideas.
