  • Inside the AE Mastermind: What Really Successful People Do Differently to Fix Their Blind Spots (TPS192)

One of the best ways to improve your productivity is to get around other productive people who can help you see your blind spots and share what really works. And that’s exactly what facilitated last November for some of our best customers when we invited them to come to Austin, TX for the Asian Efficiency mastermind.

In this episode, Thanh and Mike go behind the scenes and share the Asian Efficiency perspective on masterminhds. We share how we put together a successful mastermind meeting, including how we made sure that the right people were there, the process we used that helped attendees get the results they were looking for, why asking the right questions is so important, and how you can apply these questions and frameworks right now even if you aren’t currently connected to a mastermind group. If you want to know how you can start achieving next-level results by finding the right people and asking the right questions, then this episode is for you.
