The Ninth Step toward Riches

My gardening experiences this summer have been a perfect example of the power of the Mastermind.

I wasn't going to garden this summer because of Fusarium Wilt. It has damaged the tomatoes, most peppers and pimentos.

I happened to see a couple, on You Tube, in Florida using 5 gallon #2 buckets. I began using their method. Results have not been as good as expected. There are minerals missing from their soil mix they did not mention.

I found a gutter system of gardening, on You Tube, designed by a couple in Wisconsin. They had lots of videos with details. When I began understanding their gutter system, I found we didn't some of the parts needed. And they couldn't be sent through the mail. As I searched more, I found they also had a system using a 4" PVC sewer pipe. I decided to use this method. Today, Labor Day, I have a pipe to allow for 13 buckets and plants.

This Wisconsin couple has at least 3 websites with helpful details of parts needed, methods used and videos of people around the world that are using these two methods. They also have videos of upgraded methods, they have found, that work better. They also have a Facebook page with 32,000 members. Quite a Mastermind group.

Meanwhile, my cucumbers were developing an issue. I took a couple photos and posted them on their Facebook page. A man said he shared the photos with some of his friends and they all agreed my cucumbers had mosaic virus. This virus is spread by aphids. I sprayed for them, but not in time. They said, the only thing to do was get rid of the plants and soil immediately from the garden.

Lessons learned. Not all Mastermind groups have methods that are complete. Other Mastermind groups go way beyond the minimum and provide details and skills that work.

I am grateful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for having found a system that is a proven duplicateable, team system. A system that provides accurate, truthful information and takes advantage of the Power of a Mastermind group. Thank You, thank You, thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy.

I am grateful to the members of each of the Mastermind groups that participate and share their knowledge. We all benefit from that participation. Thank You, thank You, thank you to each one of You.

PS: I am grateful to each person who has downloaded Success In 10 Steps and chosen to form a Mastermind group with me. The two of us form a Mastermind group per Napoleon Hill's recommendation. Thank You, thank You, thank you to each one of You.
