    That is what happens when you attend other forums besides BHW.

    Also your sentence really lacks detail....

    It's ironic that people think arbitrary groups can just form a "mastermind" as Hill described, and that it's not a phenomenon of fishermen recognizing one another from afar, so to speak. WaFools seems to think it's an artificial construct that'll magically make people not suck at SEO.

    I'm in process of forming what might be described as a "Mastermind Group" on Skype, only the tone really is arrogant and counter-productive. It turns people OFF.

    The group I'm seeking to form is less grandiose than that. More along the lines of "two heads are better than one", only with a lot more substance than simple brainstorming.

    I got the idea from a scene in a movie (that I can't remember the name of), where 4 guys are hitting on 4 women in a bar while playing pool. Problem is, they all want the same woman. One guy realizes that if they compete against each other, one guy "wins" and the other 3 get nothing. So instead, he proposes that they all cooperate together, and strategically "divide" the "resources" so that while only 1 of them gets what he really wants, the other 3 at least get something, instead of nothing.

    Meaning, if a group of people work together for mutual economic benefit, they can profit more than if they adopt a lone-wolf "me against the world" philosophy, where some of them might win, but the majority will not. If this idea appeals to you, please find me on Skype.
