My experience on the DNA Yacht Mastermind

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything about business… I’ve been pretty hush-hush about what I do and just sharing travel stories on my blog here.

I’m going to share with you a little insight into what I learned here while on the DNA Yacht Mastermind in Mallorca, Spain.

I had the opportunity to join a few of my mentors on this mastermind and felt that I needed to invest a relatively large chunk of money ($25,000) to get onto this yacht to learn.

But, I 100% believe that investing in yourself is the best investment you can make.

…and boy was I right.

So, I’ve basically built up some pretty awesome things in my business. I have built up a few assets that make me a good amount of money each and every month, however there was a sort of mindset issue I had with getting past a certain income goal.

Something was preventing me from breaking through and I knew that being around the DNA Yacht Mastermind crew would help me overcome that.

(I’ve found that once you get accustomed to a certain level of success, you need outside influences to help you get to larger levels of success)

Sure, I could have coasted still and made pretty good money.

However, I’m not about that. I have big goals and I intend to accomplish every one of them.

Something that I personally think is pretty funny is that I’m building up a certain business. I had in my mind before coming here that I wanted to sell it for $250,000-$500,000 within about 1-2 years.

I’ve been building it up and preparing it so that it could be sold….and I thought I had a great plan.

But then I met and listened to Com Mirza, who’s worth over 1/2 a Billion dollars….and him and another mentor of mine, Peter Parks had other plans for me.

They called me out.

They said I was thinking too small.

and then Andrew Fox reminded me that… “you don’t want to work for a big pay check, you want to work for a big pay off.”

Damn.

This is the stuff that you don’t get when you surround yourself with small players.

Alright, now on to what was truly the most valuable thing for me…

Systems.

I’ve done an okay job with one aspect of my business. I have 2 virtual assistants who are content creators and do things that allow me to focus on higher level stuff for me. This frees up my brain to think of new ways to grow the business and start to do each of these things.

The problem was, I would get stuck.

I’d try to do the tech stuff….which I’m horrible at.

….and it wouldn’t get done.

I’m good at marketing and creative thinking and planning out the long term vision, however I suck at the short term day-to-day stuff. They taught me I needed to build up a better team.

To find people who are great where I’m not. To only hire A players. Sure, it will cost more. But A players are A players for a reason.

It’s like having a professional basketball team and thinking you could win the NBA Championship with a team of decent high school kids….it’s just not going to happen.

You need to find and hire the best of the best….and pay them well.

So now, i’m in the process of building up my team. Building the beginning steps of my legacy.

…and I’m ecstatic!

Over the last 2 days i’ve been mapping out everything that I do to grow each business….and I mean everything.

and recording videos so that I can show my A teammates exactly how to do what they’ll be doing, and I know that by showing them this stuff they’ll be able to come up with their own great ideas that will help the business grow even more.

It’s seriously amazing what can be accomplished when you start to actually plan out each and every detail.

If there’s a hole, you fix it.

For example, say I need a new website put up.

I used to just do it all myself, and it would take me quite a bit of time.

Now, I can have someone who is great at that set everything up, handle the look and layout of everything and make sure it looks great for visitors.

That allows me to think of the content that needs to be shared and the products that will be beneficial to our audience and customers.

….and then hire people who can create those products and content.

Before coming on the DNA Yacht Mastermind, I knew that I needed to do something along these lines…but honestly, I had no idea how to go about doing it.

They taught me how to structure the businesses I’m building, steps to take to find the right people and exactly what to do in order to position the one business for sale.

Plus, all of the stuff I’ve been doing with CPA Marketing…I have a plan to take me beyond my wildest dreams with this.

and the best part is that I know how to setup my team so that I can do what I’m best at!

All I can do is say thank you to Peter Parks and Andrew Fox for putting together the DNA Yacht Mastermind.

If you ever have the opportunity to go, find the money and do it.

If you’re looking for how to build up a business similar to what I do, you should get their DNA Wealth Blueprint course.

It’s not always available for sale, in fact, at the current time I know it’s not available.

But, if you happen to click here and it’s available for purchase. Buy it.
