Creating Your Own Autus masterminds Group! One of the first areas of concern to people when they decide to form their own Autus masterminds group is, “Where am I going to find 4 - 6 more people to join my group?” This guide will make things easier for you to get started! We are going to break the whole process into five simple steps. Each step is a goal for you to achieve. Yep! We like to get you straight into goal setting and achieving from the moment you made the decision to join Autus masterminds! Your ultimate goal is to achieve a ‘charter strength’ Autus masterminds group of 5 -7 members within six weeks. Now lets get started! Your First Goal Okay, so you’ve made a decision to create your very own Autus masterminds group. The first thing you need to do is to go onto our website, (www.autusmasterminds.com) and register yourself as a person interested in creating an Autus masterminds group. Once you have done this, you will be sent a link that will take you to a webpage where you can download our, “Group Coordinators Manual” plus a brochure to help you create awareness to others about Autus masterminds. As you are the person taking the initiative to create a new Autus masterminds group, we assume you will also be the inaugural group coordinator for your new Autus masterminds group. So once you have downloaded the manual, have a read through as it will provide further information about Autus masterminds and your role as group coordinator. Time allocated for this goal – 3 days Your Second Goal Find at least one other person who wants to achieve more in their life and wants to join you in creating a new Autus masterminds group. This person may be a friend, a friend of a friend, a work colleague or a relative. From our website print off a few copies of the Brief Overview and also the Introduction to Autus masterminds. Pass these onto those people who you believe are like-minded in that they also want to get off the merry-go-round of life and follow their dreams and ambitions. Get them to view the website and watch the video introduction. Your only goal at this stage is to find at least one other person. You may gain more than one potential member from doing this but for this goal, let’s assume you only find one other person to join you. Time allocated for this goal – 1 week Your Third Goal Okay, great work! You now have one other person to join your group. The both of you now get together over coffee or something and discuss finding the third member of your group. Your second member will probably know others who you don’t know that may be interested. Ensure that they also have copies of the ‘Brief Overview’, The Introduction to Autus masterminds and some of the downloaded brochures. Your goal together is to find member number three! Time allocated for this goal – 1 week Your Fourth Goal Woo Hoo! Three members! Now same as in goal three, have a meeting together and discuss potential new members. Your third member probably knows others that you don’t. Again, ensure they have all the information to pass on and then the three of you go out and seek your fourth Autus masterminds group member. Time allocated for this goal – 1 week Your Fifth Goal Congratulations on achieving four members! With four members you can now go to our website, www.autusmasterminds.com and join the Autus masterminds growing family of people creating more from their lives. With four members you will be listed as a non- chartered group, but you can now get started by having your ‘new member kits’ sent out to you and hold your pre-charter meeting with your three other group members. In the ‘Group Coordinators Manual’ you will find a number of items that need to be discussed and confirmed with your new group. Also at this meeting you can all discuss finding your fifth member to bring your group up to charter strength. It is quite possible that with your current group members you may only know one or two of them. This is quite normal for a group to be relative strangers or unfamiliar to each other at the time of charter. Time allocated for this goal – 1 week Congratulations! Upon achieving charter strength each of your members will be sent their Charter Certificates as well as their Autus masterminds membership cards. By now you have you will confirmed with your group, meeting times, frequency and venue. Now that you are getting started with your regular meetings, always seek to find another one or two people to join your group, you will be amazed how much extra energy there is among the group with seven members. By successfully achieving each of the five goals to create an Autus masterminds group within the four and a half weeks, you and your fellow group members have proven to yourselves that you have the necessary commitment and motivation to create a new lifestyle for yourselves.
