Investor Master Minds

Ann Arbor Area Board-Realtors

Our MasterMind Sessions are simply defined as Peer-to-Peer Mentoring. No two minds ever come together without a third invisible force which may be likened to a “third mind.” When a group of individual minds are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to everyone in the group. Our Investor MasterMind Sessions bring together the minds of a group of fellow investors with different knowledge and experiences, to help you craft and implement a short and long range success plan. You don't need to pay a Mentor (especially an out of town Mentor) thousands of dollars when you can plug in to a local team of investors who will act as your personal advisory Board of Directors. Whether you're a beginner, experienced, or anywhere in between, we meet you where you are, and help you create and implement a success plan. None of us knows as much as all of us. These sessions are an opportunity to learn from others, overcome obstacles, trouble shoot, and leave you with actionable plans. This MeetUp is for YOU if you: A) Have made a COMMITMENT to yourself for success. B) Are NEW to investing, and are open to learning. C) Have SOME experience, and realize the importance of LEARNING MORE and NETWORKING. D) Are EXPERIENCED, but have a PAY IT FORWARD approach, and realize there is always something new to learn, and great new connections to be made. Here are the advantages to participation in our MasterMind: We provide a welcoming atmosphere. We will help expose you to great books, tools, trainings, and resources based on your area of interest. If you're unfamiliar with the MasterMind concept, please Google it, and do some research on the concept, it's history, and how it works. You need to experience it to understand it's power.
