    This is an invitation to join private white-hat mastermind group in order to create a group of people to give advice, share experience, think bigger and support each other.

    Minimum Requirements:
    1) have to be a bhw member for at least 1 year
    2) your total monthly income $1000 - $10'000 (either day-work or self employed)
    3) your online income - at least $100/month
    4) have at least 1 website with 100 uniques a day (for at least 6 months)
    5) a webcam and mic.. (it might sound really strange, and during these years I have met too many people who avoid webcams)
    6) FB profile with at least 50 friends. Reasoning: lack of friends/relatives usually is a strong signal of serious problems in the life of a person, and I don't want to take chances.

    Not required, but will be an advantage: you own a company

    * Max members: 4
    * Price: free
    * Platform: G+
    * Days: Mondays
    * Frequency: 1x a week regularly and without excuses
    * Time: 9-10am (London time)
    * Language: English

    To apply: please send me a message here at bhw that includes links to your linkedin profile, fb profiles and few of your websites.

    I will keep this thread updated.

    quickly about me: 39, married, 4 kids, live in the UK, have a reasonably well paid day job, 2 small limited companies, built my 1st website in 1999, crashed my 1st pc in 1995 (twice), love podcasts, times by times attend adult industry business shows, more (although not the whole picture):
    PHP:
    https://www.linkedin.com/in/helmutsmeskonis
    my fb and please save your time and don't add me on fb - I keep the list of my friends as clean as possible and approve only the people I would allow sleep over at my place.. for example @davids355 :
    PHP:
    https://www.facebook.com/helmuts.meskonis
    H

    Dear mods.. please send me a short pm if you decide to delete this thread, containing a suggestion how can I post this message here. Thank you.

    You might wanna rethink the requirements

    webcam: not gonna webcam with males ( or females as im married ) and this would add little extra value
    Income : you just have to "connect the dots" here but I am sure most others dont want to show you their income as it would likely involve opening up some of their niches or methods and its just not done - same goes for sharing your website stats I do not need anyone poking around in my niches or data
    fb: so many of us dont have time to make "friends" on FB I really cant give a shit and only have my family on there and dont see a reason to share that with you

    In short I dont see how all of this would qualify one as a mastermind except for the website stats and then again 100 uniques is not a great deal at all IF they were done via whitehat methods and of course you'd be poking around to verify that and analyze its backlinks - another thing most here wont appreciate

    These are my 2 cents mate

    I agree some of the requirements might offend some user. See it as a job interview, ton of requirements but you might end up with the job and only have 50% of them. Same here, the goal is to skim applicants.

    Good luck in your group! Personally, I would have been interested if the group had a specific goal.

    Hi, yes - usually the nature of specific requirements is to pre-sort applicants in order to save time for all the involved parties, and it is the case here as well.

    be well,

    This is an attempt to put together small group of like-minded individuals who work in more or less perfect harmony in growing their businesses.

    look guys, I'm not here to convince anybody neither to explain what are mastermind groups and why they are necessary if you want to be successful.

    either we are on the same page or we are not.

    for those who are curious about the camera - it is blackmagic cinema camera, and yes, I have few projects serving adult industry as well (btw - it pays much, much more than adsense).

    I remember my first days here, more than one year ago. I spent a some time knowing the place and the people here and in my humble opinion, it would be good if you rethink the way to "recruit" people. Just an opinion.

    Having a lack of friends on FB does not equate to having a lack of friends irl. I, personally, hate social media. I have like 4 friends on my FB page, and none of them are related to me. We're connected for business purposes, and nothing else. Meanwhile, irl, I have tons of friends and a very active social life.

    That's kind of a silly requirement. Seriously. And it also shows me your mindset, if you believe that everyone on this forum connects with people they know irl through FB. I keep my work and social life completely separate for very obvious reasons. But it's not my idea or my group so do what you feel.

    hmm.. never thought that this thread could be seen like this..

    from the other side - people who pass the above mentioned requirements are unemployable.. yes, everybody can be convinced to buy some services or join some affiliate program, but creating a mastermind group is not the way to recruit people due to the lack of scope.

    --

    few months ago I tried to have a mastermind group with a person whose seo skills I deeply respect (and I can't say that often), but it didn't work out as we were on completely different pages of our lives + as well he is completely broke and we decided not to continue our conversations.

    .. as well I assume that I wouldn't be too interesting to most single successful people who make 10k a month and even less to those who make much more as his/her life chances are reduced

    masterminds are there as alliances to improve you life chances by having regular business meetings with like-minded people who are at the same stage of life as you are.

    if I can suggest, here Cliff (podcast answerman) did a good podcast about masterminds: http://podcastanswerman.com/400/ (I don't agree to everything he says, but it is a damn good episode).

    --

    this isn't my first try to create a mastermind group like this and over here it and it looks like it isn't going anywhere for different reasons.

    but, if you stumble upon this thread months later - shoot me a message over the skype as I might still be looking :)

    have a great day all,
    H

    Hi, I see your point and you might be one of those rare exceptions. My personal experience with people who don't have relatives and real life friends on fb is really bad and I just don't want to chances :/ .. + if you don't like fb and social media - what can we have common? .. again, I'm not saying I'm right or wrong - it is all about finding the people who are right for me.

    all the best,
    H

    p.s. hmm.. I wish I could separate my work and private life, but it seems to be impossible :)

    This is true, I remember him from before, if I recall correctly it's a job site for adult workers

    Now looking at the picture I realise my astounding description never shed any light on anything, suffice it to say, not everybody is making it up.

    can I ask you guys.. what is the main part you hate in the initial text? .. It could be healthy to identify the obstacles and maybe the next time a similar thread would work the best in my and your best interests.
