Are you familiar with a mastermind? As a budding online entrepreneur, I immerse myself in business how-to’s, best practices, and successful tips and tactics of those doing what I strive to accomplish.

It seems they mean business. So far, I’m thoroughly impressed with the communication. If you have any questions, expect a prompt response on twitter if you contact
