The author tells us that success requires a plan. A plan is not static , it is not something to create and expect it to be the end result forever. In the event that plan does not work we need to start over or at least make adjustments. He also mentions the importance of having a Mastermind Team for added input. We not only need the input of other minds to create the plan, we continue to need it over time.
In order to grow we need the input from others who have gone before and experienced the challenges we face to help us grow and mature. In other words the Mastermind is essential and continues to be so as long as we are in business and also in our personal lives.
Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for sharing the knowledge they gained over the years of both failure and success.
