One of the things I love about the Elite Mastermind I’m a Member of is the evening meals and drinks.
We talk about our businesses, for sure, and the relaxed setting means we come up with ideas we perhaps wouldn’t in the actual Mastermind… but we also talk about other things.
Here’s an example. A conversation about the nature of god (which most of us in this group don’t believe in) morphed into a discussion about what people really are – I mean, the bit that makes you you. Which led to an interesting discussion about sharing memories in the case of brain tissue transplants (it probably wouldn’t happen, but it’s interesting to speculate).
And that conversation led to theories on the Trousers of Time and the possibility of an infinite multiverse.
Which, of course, means that somewhere out there is a planet populated entirely by unicorns. Probably.
I like the idea of the Trousers of Time (Terry Pratchett’s phrase, not mine) which describes the phenomenon whereby every time a decision is made, a parallel universe splits off. Every outcome of every action everywhere is played out somewhere.
Right back to the formation of the universe.
We got talking about the size of the universe, and how the known universe is just a small part of it – and how even within the known universe there could be areas that are vastly, wildly alien to us. I mean, part of it could be made of jelly. We just don’t know.
And that blows my mind.
We’re all thinkers, you see. And my book Business For Superheroes is similar; I don’t attract people who simply meander through life waiting for the next episode of EastEnders. I want thinkers. People who challenge the norm, who look for different ways to do things, who don’t just blindly share unsubstantiated nonsense on Facebook but who consider it critically and look at the evidence.
If that’s you, and you want to take your business to the next level, you should consider buying a copy.
Vicky Fraser is a copywriter, author, and entrepreneur. She really did run away with the circus… but when she’s not swinging from a trapeze, she’s showing other copywriters and small business owners how to work with better clients, make more money, and stop missing bathtimes, first words, and dinners with angry partners. In fact, she wrote the book on it. Get your copy here.
PS I’ve just had another thought: if there’s a world filled with unicorns out there, there might also be a world populated entirely by Donald Trump *shudder*. Sometimes I wish I didn’t think so much.
I promise if you buy my book, there’ll never be any Donald Trump.
