On today’s episode Kathryn and Caren are talking about Mastery
Segment 1 –
Valuable information you can use right now to spark your business, creativity and loving your life. Today we are talking about Mastery. What is mastery? Getting so good at something that you have an automatic, unconscious level of performance. This can be seen in sports, writing, cooking, speaking, artistic creation, and music. It is alway accompanied by learning fundamentals, lots of active doing and getting input and insights from people with a perspective and understanding that sees what is possible and the ability to impart the techniques, insight or confidence that you need to get to the next level.
One of my favorite books on this subject is Mastery” The Keys to Success and Long term Fulfillment by George Leonard and The Art of Possibilities by Benjamin and Rosamund Zander. Both are short, powerful books with practical examples. In the Mastery book, George Leonard uses the example of his quest to master Aikido – a martial arts discipline that is highly respected, but it takes sometimes 10 years of practice and study to move up to the next level. This means there are longer periods that are a plateau and mastering your own will to keep at it and not get frustrated.
The Art of Possibilities brands beyond self mastery into mastering your relationships with others. Benjamin Zander has been the conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra for the past thirty years. He has been on the faculty of the New England Conservatory since 1965 and has taken the NEC Youth Philharmonic on thirteen international tours. He is the Artistic Director of the Walnut Hill School, a high school for the performing arts. Mr. Zander is one of the most sought after speakers in the world, giving highly effective presentations to organizations on the subject of Leadership and Creativity. The Boston Philharmonic is all volunteer, yet it’s world class. Dr. Zander has a gift and mastered skill for getting his performers to visualize the music they are playing as something higher and more powerful and it creates an audible and visceral response in the audience.He can coach someone to get into what is often called a “flow state” where they are not dragged back frustrated, just surrendering to the music or whatever they are doing. https://vimeo.com/1163763 28
Mastery Groups or mastermind groups are based on a model promoted by Napoleon Hill in the book “Think and Grow Rich” It is a group of high level experts who help each other on a mutual benefit level instead of having a “master to student” relationship This leverages the power of their networks and influence and not just the knowledge they have.
We have the facilities to host mastermind groups on a sparklet channel -this allows you to archive your content and member forum interactions and monetize the group. In addition, members can access the group through our Spark It app and login to that group’s private resource area. We can also get an app built for your group that is dedicated just for your use. With push messaging and other app features, this is a powerful tool for more engagement and faster responses.
Why not just use a Facebook group?
- can’t charge $,
- fb could take it away and all your resources are gone

Why Do They Call It A Healthy Profit?
Because a business with low profits can’t withstand market downshifts, growth related expenses, legal challenges and inevitable small scale failures.
A business with ample profits can use them to grow, develop new products and services, invest in property and long term assets and pay a high value team enough to keep them in top form.
