Show Notes

Our guest on this episode of the Start with a Win podcast is Aaron Walker (“Big A”), Founder and President of Iron Sharpens Iron Mastermind groups. Big A started his first business at age 18 and sold it 9 years later to a Fortune 500 company, essentially setting him up to be retired before most people have even found their careers. In the 42 years since, he has launched 14 businesses and attempted to retire 3 times, all the while participating in mastermind groups. 

After his most recent unsuccessful retirement attempt, Aaron was encouraged by the members of his mastermind group, Dave Ramsey in particular, to launch his own coaching platform to help ordinary people become extraordinary. And Iron Sharpens Iron was born. The goal of any mastermind group, but specifically ISI is to buy into a group of unbiased and trusted advisors who can provide encouragement and accountability. This is not a place to come to be comfortable and sip coffee, but rather a battleground intended to eliminate your bad ideas, shape your good ideas, and be spurred on to pursue new ideas. Big A believes that if you are breathing, you belong in a mastermind group. He says that the structure provided in these groups thrives on authenticity and transparency and cultivates a willingness to learn and listen to different perspectives. 

When you are looking for a mastermind group to join, Aaron says that it is of utmost importance that you vet and research the leader of the group as well as the stated mission and format of the group before committing to applying or becoming a part of it. Don’t rush into this decision but wait for the group that is the best fit for you and then commit to it fully. If you are interested in starting your own mastermind group, listen to Mastermind Playbook podcast as you walk through the process and you can find out more about the Iron Sharpens Iron Mastermind groups on his website.
