Do you prefer the Stairs or the Elevator?

(For a replay of our 16 minute Spreecast from New York City announcing our exciting news please click here –

I just returned late last night from New York City where I had the opportunity to attend the Coffee Fest Trade Show with 3 of my fellow mastermind members. I firmly believe that one should not try to build your business alone and that truth is even more apparent to me now after spending just two days with them.   The ideas that were generated and the deepening friendships will easily turn out to mean increased income for me and my family.
When you can leverage each others experiences you can all go to another level.
It’s the difference between taking the elevator vs. taking the stairs. Imagine being at the Empire State Building with me and I take the elevator to the top and you take the stairs. We’re both going to make it to the top. However, I’m going to get there much faster and be much more rested when I get there. That’s the power of a group of like-minded individuals working together.
Since joining this mastermind group last fall, my business has literally EXPLODED and it would not have grown at this rate had it not been for the relationships we’ve built and the ideas we’ve shared.

I so believe in the power of getting together with like minded individuals that I want you to experience that as well.

Even though the value is there for just the content you’ll receive I truly believe the 2 paramount reasons why you should consider joining us are:
1) Each attendee is going to receive a one hour consultation where we will talk about your business and the challenges you’re facing and how to overcome them.   This will be a private session with at least 4 out of the 8 of us.

2) We are going to help you form your own mastermind group with a few of the other attendees.
