I'm Nick and I have a confession. When I recorded this episode with Alex Barker from AlexBarker.org (The Leadership Dojo podcast), I had never been in any sort of formal mastermind group. Listen to the collective gasp in my blogger/podcaster/entrepreneur-type circles, that information is blasphemy! It's totally my fault. Masterminds are something I see huge value in but just never made a priority -- until now. In this episode, we talk all the details of what a mastermind is and why they're important for side hustlers. Alex knows a thing or two about the topic, having written the book on the subject: Hangout and Grow Rich: How to Build Your Virtual Mastermind in 30 Days (which he generously offered for free to Side Hustle Nation if you visit his site and send him a message).
