The idea of a "Mastermind Group" has been around for over 75 years, yet few people understand how to curate a long-term and mutually beneficial peer group. A Mastermind Group is how you can take "networking" and turn it into actionable support by creating a personal board of directors who meet regularly and lend continuing advice and counsel.
In today's internet world the idea of constructing a Mastermind Group no longer is predicated on geography, and attending an event like SXSW can be the right pool from which to begin finding like-minded people who are committed to similar levels of career advancement.
Business owners and entrepreneurs who participate in formal (and costly) peer organizations often swear that these associations have a direct impact on their company's growth. Having peers who have "been there, done that" can limit needing to learn from your own mistakes. But you need not be the CEO to have the power of a group that can show you the best path.
