Napoleon Hill wrote a book way back in 1937, Think and Grow Rich. He had been commissioned by Andrew Carnegie to interview 500 men (naturally) of great success and wealth at the time. These included such luminaries as John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell, Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Alva Edison, Woodrow Wilson, and many others whose names are known still today.
Hill became an advisor to Andrew Carnegie, and his book contained the “secrets” to Carnegie’s success, as well as others whom he had interviewed. They form the basis of Hill’s “13 Steps Towards Riches” detailed in Think and Grow Rich. The book has inspired generations of entrepreneurs with its practical and pragmatic approach to success. There is much to disregard considering women, given the changes in our society in recent years.
Hill’s ninth step of Think and Grow Rich is “Power of the Master Mind,” which he defines as “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” He contends that knowledge may be acquired from accumulated experience, research and experiment, intelligence. “It may be converted into POWER by organizing it into definite PLANS and by expressing those plans in terms of ACTION.” An individual would have difficulty achieving the necessary steps to ACTION alone. So, like Carnegie and Henry Ford and their assembled circles of advisors, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Every business owner needs advice, support and information from a variety of sources. A circle of other business owners can be a special resource and, when assembled with care, can make the difference in achieving your business goals.
