Most small business owners and consultants may never have heard of Mastermind groups.I wish I had 18 years years ago when I first started my public relations consulting and public speaking practice.Why?Well, I would have had greater certainty around client acquisition and retention and therefore cash flow. This would have provided greater certainty for every part of my life and lifestyle.It would have also provided a greater variety of clients ac...
