My barber blew my mind.
I’m sitting there and he’s cutting my hair and we’re talking about advice and mentorship…
… so I shared with him this silly Facebook group I started that eventually became one of the most valuable resources in my professional life.
That’s when he told me he was part of a similar group with barbers from other major cities…
… and they all connect online to share best practices, resources and stories to help each other out?!
Mr. Ryan Browne – my barber – has a virtual mastermind group?!!!
That made me smile.
There’s nothing more powerful than surrounding yourself with people on a similar journey in life.
People who can support you… push you… and teach you how to show up in the world at a world class level.
The strategy is available to ANYONE.
Yes I’m looking at you.
In this week’s video I want to unlock the secrets to what’s made my private Facebook group so freaking powerful AND differentiated to ensure there’s high engagement.
To ensure you bring the thunder and create a lot of value for the members, I’ve outlined a framework and some guiding principles.
Do this right and you’ll have a loyal and engaged community eager to connect and bring value to each other’s lives.
1) Have a differentiated theme / focus (ex: SaaS Founders)
2) Curate based on shared values, outcome, and diversity of skills
3) Set standards for contribution (ex: – Ask: Journey, – Give: Value, – Praise: Highlight)
After sharing this strategy most entrepreneurs are stressed because they can’t think of great original content to add to the group…
… that’s why I share the #1 tip in this week’s video that I used to solve this problem in no time. It leverages the group and adds a CRAZY amount of value to everyone involved.
If you manage any groups, have tips or questions – be sure to leave a comment to add value to the DM.com community!
The most important thing in life are the connections you make with others.
