1+1 = 3, that is the idea behind synergy. Synergy takes the individual pieces and when combined produces an output that is greater than the sum of its parts. While synergy takes many forms in business, one notable way to utilize synergy is by Mastermind groups. Our guest in this segment was Valerie Lipstein, Co-Founder of Couples & Business and returning guest to the program. Alongside her husband Michael, they work to coach couples on how to work together in business by sharing the techniques they have used to remain a successful entrepreneurial couple as well.
Each year, Valerie leads a Mastermind on the principles of Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich. This book, a classic summation of the traits of some of the world’s best entrepreneurs, is truly a must read for anyone in business. Written in 1937, Napoleon Hill provides 13 principles / steps that one must be cognizant of to maximize their potential. These principles are: desire, faith, autosuggestion, specialized knowledge, imagination, organized planning, decision, persistence, mastermind, sex transmutation, the subconscious mind, the brain and the 6th sense.
This book stemmed from the 1925 book, The Law of Success which was commissioned by Andrew Carnegie. This book may never have come to be if it were not for the quick decision making of Napoleon Hill, a story that Jamie shares in this segment and a component of many successful entrepreneurs according to the findings of Napoleon Hill.
Valerie for the past 5 years has led her annual Mastermind that is a 6 week program and shares with the audience some of the successes of the participants in this segment and also touches on how you, the listener can get involved.
