When starting out on a new endeavor, with your goals laser focused and burned into your future.  How then do you start online if you've never done this before:

From:  Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill:  Part 1 Track 5 (Audio Book)  "And yes, you should be going through 1 book every two weeks (Study them and they will guide you along the way).

Your MasterMind group and why it matters:

Knowledge is only possible power, Knowledge will not attract money unless it is organized and intelligently directed through practical plans and action to the definite end of accumulation of money.  Lack of understanding of this fact has been the source of confusion to millions of people who falsely believe that "Knowledge is Power"

Henry Ford was not an educated man in the "general sense"   during the World War a Chicago newspaper published editorials in which among other statements, Henry Ford was called an 'ignorant pacifist'.  Mr. Ford objected to these statements and brought suit against the paper for libeling him.  When the suit was tried in the courts the attorneys from the paper argued justification and placed Mr. Ford himself on the witness stand for the purpose of proving to the jury he was ignorant.   The attorney's asked Mr. Ford a variety of questions to prove by his own evidence that he might possess considerable knowledge pertaining to the manufacturing of automobiles he was in the main, ignorant.

Mr. Ford was plied with questions as the following: Who was Benedict Arnold? How many soldiers did the Brittish send over to put down the rebellion of 1776?  In answer to the last question Mr. Ford replied: "I do not know the exact number of soldiers the Brittish sent over but I have heard it was a considerably larger number than ever went back."

Finally, Mr. Ford became tired of this line of questioning, and in reply to a particularly offensive question.  He leaned over, pointed his finger at the attorney asking him the questions and said "If I should really want to answer the foolish question you have just asked or any of the other questions.  Let me remind you that, I have a row of electric push-buttons on my desk and, by pushing the right button, I can summon to my aid men who can answer any question I desire to ask concerning the business to which I am devoting most of my efforts.  Now, why would I clutter up my mind with general knowledge with the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge which I require."

There certainly was good logic to that reply.  That answer floored the lawyer.  Every person in the courtroom realized it was the answer, not of an ignorant man, but of a man of education.  Any man is educated who knows where to get knowledge when he needs it.  And how to organize that knowledge into definite plans of action.  Through the assistance of his Mastermind Team, Henry Ford had at his command all the specialized knowledge he needed to enable him to become one of the wealthiest men in America.

It was not essential that he have this knowledge in his own mind.  Surely no person who has sufficient inclination and intelligence to read a book of this can possibly miss the significance of this illustration.   Before you can be sure of your ability to transmute  desire into its monetary equivalent, you require specialized knowledge of the service, merchandise or profession which you intend to offer in return for fortune.  Perhaps you may need much more specialized knowledge than you have the ability or the inclination to acquire.  And if this should be true, you can bridge the weakness through the aid of your MasterMind group.

I came into the above listening of the Napolean Hill audio book on a Sunday evening and thought he was talking directly to me.  I know my  7 person Mastermind group uses the WhatsApp on our phones and the Zoom application to see each other when strategizing or fixing one another's problems on the weekend meet.   Jinny is our Facebook guru,  George just showed us the Instagram plugin for WordPress.  Diane helped us display the Privacy Policy, Terms of Use needed for Google approval and we discussed our plans for the next month.

Going into an online business seems crazy to me now that I've met my only family, team, and helpers.    See these short videos of what we do in action.   It is currently Facebook <> Blog and soon to be LiveStreaming focused, but the strategy is not the point.  It is the camaraderie, the giving of energy when you are low or run into a technical issue.      Come watch us in action one weekend and see everyone is different, though we have the same goals and dreams.
