Course Description


  • The Ultimate Advantage Mastermind Guide PDF
  • Bonus Complete AudioBook Version

How would you like to have your own team of hand-picked advisors committed to your personal success?

What could you do with expert advice, wise counsel, and a network of successful people at your fingertips?

You know the hottest business principle today is “collaboration" not “competition." What could you do with the collaboration of your own mastermind group?

I don't know anyone who has become extraordinarily successful who has not utilized the principle of the mastermind group. Whether you're a small business owner, a personal growth seeker, a consultant, a free-lance worker, a real estate agent, an artist or a corporate employee, you can benefit from being part of a Mastermind Group.

Being part of a Mastermind Group is like having your own board of directors. Except there's no hidden agenda - everyone is openly committed to the success of the other members.

In this course you'll discover:

  • Why you Need a Mastermind Group To Achieve Greater Success
  • How To Start a Mastermind Group Immediately
  • Strategies for Selecting the Right Members of your Group
  • How To Run a Mastermind Group

This course is divided into short, actionable segments designed to give you the essentials and get you up and running with your own Mastermind group immediately.

You may have goals, strategies and tactics for achieving a high level of success, but without a Mastermind group, you're polishing a Ferrari with no gas in the tank.

Success doesn't require that we're born in the right place, have the right IQ or have the right degree - but it does require that we take the right action.

Here's what our students are saying:

"WORTH $100,000!!!! The content in this course is INVALUABLE! I learned how to start a mastermind group from Dan's teachings and it has forever changed my life and each of the other 11 guys in my mastermind group. With the exception of my faith and family, this has been the most positively LIFE CHANGING thing I have ever experienced. THANKS DAN! You have forever impacted my life and the 100s of thousands I plan to lead!" - David M.

“I followed Dan's guide for starting my Mastermind and we've been meeting 20 weeks in a row. It's been pretty transformational in all of our lives - personal and business."- Ben L.

“Dan's direct experience and decade long involvement with mastermind groups really shows in this course. The information and advice is solid, and the downloadable PDF is a gem of a resource." - Dereck C.

Section 1: The Proven History of Masterminds

Welcome! In this first module, I introduce the concept behind Mastermind Groups including: What a Mastermind Group really is and the benefits of Mastermind Groups.


Where did Mastermind Groups come from? In this video I break down the history of Masterminds from Benjamin Franklin to present day groups. I also cover the structure of those groups and what went on with them and how it's changed over the years.


This download contains the audio files from all the classes in the course! Download it and use it as a supplement with the course.

Section 2: The Power Behind Mastermind Groups

What actually happens during a Mastermind Group meeting? In this video I'll show you exactly how I've structured some of my own Mastermind Groups. I also discuss the times we met, the purpose, tools and who was invited to the group.

Section 3: How To Start Your Group

In this module I answer these questions and more:

What kind of success can you expect?

What types of issues should you tackle with your group?

How will a Mastermind Group help your business? And how is it different than your board?

What can you share with your group?


After you decide on the formation of the group, it's time to select the member. In this module I answer these questions and several others: Should you invite people you know or don't know? What qualities should you look for in members? Where do you look for the right members? Who is the leader?

Section 4: Mastermind Group Details

In this module we get into the details of the when, where and how of a Mastermind Group. We go through:

What's the ideal size of a group? What day of the week should you meet? What time should you meet? How do you keep your group from getting stale? How should you run your Mastermind Group?


In this module we get into the specifics of running a Mastermind Group. How often should you meet? How rigid should the structure of your group be? Should you follow a book with your group? How do you keep one person from dominating the conversation? Should you have guidelines? What if group members don't show up? How do you track your success?


In this last video module, we discuss the pros and cons of charging members of your Mastermind Group. How much? Is it ok to not charge your members? How does a fee change the dynamic of a group?
