After reading Eric Moeller‘s book Levelling Up: The Complete Guide to Starting a Mastermind Group, I started several virtual masterminds:
Writers’ Mastermind Group
A group of writers who all have the common goal of completing their own book project and self-publishing it before Thanksgiving.
I had the idea of having a group of writers who want to complete a book and then pushed them forward (including myself as a peer) with:
- Creating a daily habit of writing – a manageable 30 minutes every day
- Holding weekly accountability sessions online for peer accountability and peer support over the summer. This changed to meeting twice a month in the Fall due to other meetings for the same group.
- Setting realistic goals for each of us (example: write 1 page per day) and declare them
- Share online resources for design, editing, layout, self-publishing, and other helpful tips to accomplish the ultimate mastermind group goals
Started with an online survey in June to have writers opt-in with qualifying questions.
Two weeks later, I followed up with a scheduled Q&A session via group Zoom call for those already committed and anyone on the fence. Locked in the group that night and we got started. No more procrastination.
We wrote during July, August, and September. Then we had the books edited in October. Pushed for cover designs, formatting, layout, and marketing.
Pushed to finish their book projects and ready to publish in late November.
Podcasting Mastermind Group
During the summer, I also started a mastermind for podcasting with a few podcasters.
