Have you ever heard the expression “two heads are better than one”?  When you multiply the ideas of more than one person you tend to get more solutions than just two.  This is a mastermind, which can consist of any number of congenial people who have each others interest in mind.  I have personally witnessed and been part of the mastermind effect for network marketing success.

But masterminds also work well in many other areas.  Saturday night I went to the annual fund raiser for the Council for Jews with Special Needs, of which my daughter Leila is a founding member 25 years ago.  Yes, this was the 25th anniversary of the organization.

Leila started out at the age of 5 at Sunday school with a special needs teacher and trained high school level aides to help her learn.  She was also included in the regular classrooms with the aides assisting her.  The Council (CJSN) assisted with creating curriculum at Leila’s level.  For some of the other children with special needs just being part of a Jewish experience was enough.

Anyway, at the fundraiser we had delicious food way beyond the advertised hors d’oeuvres, catered by Simply Scrumptious, who did the luncheons for Leila’s Bat Mitzvah in 1994 and her brother’s Bar Mitzvah in 1996.  Needless to say I love that food!

At dessert a video was featured highlighting the 25 years and what it meant to some of the participants and their parents.  Leila did appear in some of the photos.  Afterward the committee that organized and carried out the event was introduced.  Many of the ladies were parents of program participants, some just friends who believe in the organization.  There were a lot of them.

It occurred to me that, while this annual event has a system to follow created over the  years, the the committee was really a mastermind, with various ideas for theme, centerpieces, gathering items for the silent auction, pulling all the elements together, etc.  There is a lot of behind-the-scene work.  Without the mastermind group volunteering their time for a common goal, the event would not be nearly as successful and even might not occur.

By the way, I bought the decorated plastic bowl Leila made for the event.  That was the only auction item that appealed to me.

Wishing you to find the mastermind effect for network marketing success in your life,
