The idea of a Mastermind group was popularised in Napoleon Hill’s iconic Think and Grow Rich. It is defined as: “a coordination of knowledge and effort […] between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose”. I think the term itself is irritating and misleading: it puts up unnecessary boundaries. If you talk about being in a Mastermind group, it’s going to be tough not to come across as pompous. On the flip side, if you ask someone to join a Mastermind group, they’re going to feel intimidated, and probably like they don’t want to be the kind of presumptuous git who trumpets their “mastermind” status.
