There is much happening in my world. As you might have gathered from the subject line, I have been quite busy. However, despite evacuating Florida last week and Hurricane Irma making landfall in Southwest Florida very close to my home (Thank you God for my abode being intact), my business is still running, for which I am giving myself a proverbial pat on the back. As I write this, my neighborhood has no potable water, insufficient sewage, no power, spotty cell service, limited gasoline and food supplies and debris strewn about.  Paradise will return to Naples soon!  Irmaggedon will not keep us down!

Instead of providing you with a pithy article (which you can find on my blog), I and my Naples Strong crew want to offer you a 30 day free trial to the Ann Babiarz & Associates, LLC Finance & Investing Mastermind Group.  HURRY, this offer expires 9/30/17! Above you will find a recent spreadsheet containing our investment results.

Please note, in addition to the numerous benefits below, I would like to mention that if you were to try to compile most of the information that we provide on your own, it would take thousands of dollars and many hours of research.  It’s great if you have the money, time and connections, but how realistic is it?   Of course, one of the purposes of our group is to help you do this on your own.  Nonetheless, what is wrong with a jumpstart in the right direction?

Please reply to this newsletter if you would like to participate in our free trial.

I have included FAQ’s for your consideration.


What is a mastermind group?

A MasterMind group is a group that provides people with a powerful way to learn and grow as a person through a community of like-minded individuals. The Ann Babiarz & Associates, LLC Finance and Investing Mastermind Group is comprised of people that span the globe and who assist one another gain confidence and move forward in their finance, investing and in their lives.

What is meant by the Power of the Third Mind?

People coming together in the spirit of harmony, with a definite purpose in mind, and adding together their brain power is what Napoleon Hill calls the power of the third mind. “No two minds ever come together without creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.” It’s synergistic and more powerful than normal math. 1 + 1 doesn’t equal 2. It equals 3, 4, 5, or more.

Mastermind groups allow you to expand your skills. Drawing not only upon the experience and knowledge of others in your group, but also oftentimes upon talents within you of which you may not even be aware, you may learn new techniques or polish old ones.

Why should you join this mastermind group?

How will this group help you?

  • You will gain clarity. Let’s face it, investing can be overwhelming. Multi-tasking and the rapid shifting of attention is not always a good thing. Sometimes, to succeed in life and in finance and investing you need to learn how to concentrate and hone in on specific objectives, goals, problems or ideas. Moreover, not only will a mastermind group teach you to focus on the task at hand, it can help you determine whether you are clear on your direction so you won’t drift off course. In addition, group members will share different points of view. They will ask questions and offer different perspectives with you that may help you gain the clarity you need to move forward with your ideas.
  • Blind-Side Avoidance: We all have blind spots. Sometimes, unless someone points a blind spot out to us or we get burned by it, we don’t even realize we have it (hence the term blind-spot). The group can be your blind-spot patrol, alerting you to potential pitfalls to help you avoid disaster.
  • Brainstorming: This is a forum for brainstorming. Perhaps it goes without saying, but a mastermind group can be an example of a brainstorming session at its best. You can get unstuck because you have the creation and innovation of the third mind. You begin, the lights come on, and you don’t simply move forward in little steps. You move forward in huge leaps.
  • Honest Feedback: Our group is great for challenging your ideas and make a great sounding board for you. In an atmosphere of mutual respect, yet with direct interaction, members of your group can be excellent for telling you what they believe, rather than acting as a bunch of sycophants. You are surrounded by folks who are committed to moving forward and who have their own experiences to draw from to help you.
  • Relationships:  This is a terrific places to make new like-minded acquaintances and friends. Sometimes relationships forged in a mastermind group outlive the community itself.
  • Collaboration: Our group can be a source to find potential business partners and joint venture participants. You might find a kindred spirit or a congruent one. Fellow members can also review your work and possibly provide referrals for you.
  • Accountability & Support: A mastermind group led by a trained and proficient facilitator is like coaching on steroids. What would be possible if the people around you refused to let you fail? What happens with a mastermind group is that you get a better plan to be your best you, and you get better results.
  • Greater Levels of Success: What Napoleon Hill found many decades ago is still true today. For all of the above reasons, you can’t help but move towards higher levels of success.
  • RESULTS! You will see results. Clarity, action, confidence and support leads to smarter financial decisions. (Please see our most recent investment results on our Facebook page).

What this mastermind group is NOT

It’s not a class.

While we suggest resources for you and  bring in guest speakers, contributors, and teachers occasionally, the main focus of a mastermind group is the brainstorming and accountability support among the group members.

It’s not group coaching.

Mastermind groups are about the MEMBERS sharing with each other, not about the Facilitator coaching individuals in a group setting. You get everyone’s feedback, advice and support. Yes, if the Facilitator is an expert on the topic, by all means chime in. But keep the conversation balanced between all members.

It’s not a networking group.

While you may share leads and resources with each other, it is not the main focus of the meetings. However, through your connections with other members, you will find plenty of joint venture opportunities, lead sharing, and professional networking.

Why should you not join?


  • You are not serious about growth or attaining your goals.
  • You always prefer to work alone.
  • You are not willing to ASK for help or GIVE help.
