One on one with Brian Fanale. CEO-Co-Founder of My Lead System Pro (2)

Have you ever been faced with an opportunity to attend a Mastermind Retreat?  Most people have at some point in their career journey but yet so few people lean in and make the investment in themselves.  Why is that?

There are a lot of reasons why most people will never experience a Mastermind Retreat.  Here are just a few:

      1. They might think too much about the cost because let’s be honest, they aren’t cheap.
      1. They don’t believe their will be enough value to justify the cost.
      1. They may even find it difficult to envision that investment into their self-development.
      1. They just aren’t ready to take that leap of faith to grow their business.
      1. Or maybe it’s as simple as just family or job obligations, or life or bad timing that keeps them from being able to attend an event like this.

There are obviously a whole bunch of other reasons or even excuses anyone can make to not attend a Mastermind and that’s really okay because they aren’t for everyone.
Now, if you’re someone who has been curious about Masterminds or have even considered attending let me share with you some reasons why the next time you have even a remote opportunity to participate in a Mastermind that can propel you forward in your business and in your personal life you need to do whatever it takes to get you there.

I just got back from the My Lead System Pro Mastermind Retreat in Austin.  This was actually my second Mastermind in 6 months and I will say not all Masterminds are created equal.  Having something to compare this to really makes what I just experienced stand out.  Here is a little peek behind the scenes and a few things I learned during these past 3 1/2 days.

First, I waited for April 8th to come for what seems like an eternity.  I knew in my heart this event would change my life.  How did I know that you ask?  This is how.  I’ve had the honor and privilege to surround myself with people like Brian Fanale, CEO/Co-Founder of MLSP, Mark Harbert, the King of Video, Rob Fore, Online Marketing Genius, Diane Hochman, Queen of Attraction Marketing and Jesse Jameson, Facebook Expert and so many other amazing leaders inside of MLSP.  The community, the gratitude, the humbleness, the obvious desire to help each other and the positive encouragement from the leaders and everyone else made me 100% certain that I needed to get around them as much as possible.

When the Mastermind Retreat was presented last July at MLSP’s annual event, Live the Dream VI I didn’t hesitate to apply.  I knew without a doubt that this is where I was meant to be and this would forever change my path.  Sometimes you just know these things.

Fast forward 8 1/2 months and I can hardly contain myself as I anticipate what lies ahead.  Now keep in mind I am a person who has high expectations of myself and of others as well and I had extremely high expectations of this event.  I needed this Mastermind to take me to a new place, a place I wasn’t able to completely reach on my own.

You see in the home business arena many times we work alone.  We don’t have someone to share the journey with or pick us up if we “fail”, encourage us or even to celebrate with along the way.  That’s why these types of events are crucial.

So, you might be wondering if this Mastermind Retreat met my expectations, right?  Well, yes and no.

Yes in that all the I’s were dotted and the T’s were crossed.  And no in that they actually exceeded my expectations in ways I could never have imagined.  They did not hold anything back from the location (cabins in a secluded area outside of Austin) to the catered food all day long and the service and hospitality from the support ladies, Melanie, Audrey and Danielle was over the top.

But most important, the way this Mastermind was setup was so far beyond what I would have imagined or dreamed of.  There were 5 Coaches and Mentors (the four mentioned above and also Patricia Sweeney who is amazing).  And let’s not forget the Tri-Fecta, Brian and Jim Fanale and Todd Schlomer, the leaders of MLSP.  Each coach had their specialty and freely gave everything they could give to teach us new things and tricks and tips and strategies to help us propel our business. On top of this, we were all together (the participants, coaches/mentors and MLSP leadership) almost the entire time.  We started at 7:00 A.M. with meditation and went as long as 2:00 A.M.  We ate every meal together and when we were done with the learning side, usually around 10:00 P.M. we did some other growth activities and just had a great time.

You know when you can hang out with people on a social level that have this much talent and so much knowledge, that’s when you know you made the right decision.  The learning that took place during the downtime and the connections that were made were really unbelievable.

If you see the value you can start by attending the annual Live the Dream Event in Austin on August 12th – 14th.  As I said, this is where this all started for me and what led me here.  And I strongly, strongly encourage you to believe in yourself and get a VIP ticket.  You can hear more about the event and make a decision to propel your life and your business by clicking below:


In my past, I was a very successful mortgage broker.  Jealous people kept telling me I was lucky.  Unfortunately, I believed them for a while until I finally realized it wasn’t luck.  I believe in the manifestation of miracles but I also know that it doesn’t just happen.  You have to do your part too which means, take action.

When I arrived I had the pleasure of hanging out with Rob Fore for an hour and a half at the airport as we awaited our ride (who was stuck in traffic and  TRUST ME,  I didn’t care).  Then as “luck” would have it, Rob and I had similar flight times leaving so we shared a ride to the airport.  Another 40 minutes of alone time with an attraction, network and online marketing GENIUS.  As I checked in I realized we had the same flight (which he would continue on to his final destination).  This meant another 3 hours with Rob Fore if I could get a better boarding pass.  It took me all of 1 second to purchase a better spot in line so I could guarantee we would sit together. (luck or action taker?)

Pinch me...I'm flying with Rob Fore!!! (2)

What an amazing time I had as Rob shared even more knowledge.  But more than that, we shared personal stories, got to know each other and laughed a lot.  The value of this to me was PRICELESS!!!

Let me ask you this.  Was I lucky?  Oh heck yeah but what I mean is did this just happen because I’m a lucky person?  No, it happened because I believed in myself, I invested in myself and I took action.  I will never forget the past 4 days and my life, business and personal, is forever changed because of this Mastermind.

Are expensive Mastermind Retreats worth it?  YOU BET!
