Empowered Tribe | Build Your Tribe. Build You!


Welcome home!



I know you’re probably saying…”Welcome home, but I just got here?”Well let me explain by asking a question. Where do you feel most comfortable, in a room of friends who know you or a room filled with strangers? Where do you thrive the most, in a room of friends or strangers? Most people would say, with friends or with people they know.

Being online is the same thing especially if you’re leveraging social media and your blog. Not only do you want and NEED a place where people know you, you want to create that environment all around you. The Church gets this. They typically want you to go to church on Sunday and come back during the middle of the week for bible study. Why? Because you can learn and grow so much faster in a small group.

Sales groups get this. They may have a sales meeting early in the week and sometimes one or two more throughout the week. Ever been to a sales meeting where they beaten their numbers for the week or month?  PARTY! Some big businesses even get this. Have you heard of a group task force or team working on a specific project? Ok, so you can see where am I going with this. These are all mastermind groups of one form or another.

“The Master Mind may be defined as: Coordination of

knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or

more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.”

- Napoleon Hill

I’m sure you have read, or at least heard of Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich.” This book has assisted in showing hundreds of thousands of people the power behind a mastermind. In fact you actually create mastermind groups all the time whether you know it or not.

Have you made a major purchase sometime in your life? Buy a car or house? Did you finance the purchase? Have you started a project or business? Did you get advice from others on how to move through the process or “close the deal?” Bottom line is we all need the support from others from time to time, especially when it comes to making money online.

A Peek Back in History

When my friends Jon Alfredsson, Kary Rogney, Michael Feil, Nick Logan and myself first started a group – aka a tribe – little did we know what we were about to create. We were forming a mastermind syndication alliance that would forever change the way online marketing, especially social media, is being done today.

Bold statement? Absolutely!

But that is exactly what each of us believes today. But that’s not what we were thinking at the time. We were meeting on a weekly basis to get to know each other and share each others content. We were just trying to figure out how to get this thing called “Free Traffic” to our blogs. We were tired of struggling online for months without earning more than a dime to show for our efforts. We have spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of our time into our own trainings…only to wind up confused, discouraged and wondering if this online game is worth playing.

But a revolution was about to take place…

Today there are literally dozens of online tribes and communities all working towards a bigger vision. They come in various shapes and sizes and for many different reasons. But it’s those groups who understand the reason for the mastermind and have a clear vision of purpose that are the most successful. Not all tribes and communities are the same. AND THAT’S A GOOD THING. You want to find a home. Someplace where you feel welcome…where you belong. So again I say…welcome home!

What Is a Mastermind Group and Why Do I Want One?

In its simplest form, a mastermind group is a group of people who share the same ideas and come together working towards the benefits of the group. You may have heard that two heads are better than one. Or where two heads come together a third is created. All true. Again you are forming mastermind groups all the time. The idea I want you to take away is…what do you give back to those you seek information from?

To really understand the power behind a true mastermind group is to understand the law of reciprocity. You cannot continue to take from the group without giving back…or even giving first. I know this may not be a new concept for you, but it appears to be an unknown concept to an incredible amount of people who are marketing online right now.

Now there’s an opportunity for you to clean house in a big way. By creating your own mastermind group that is not only focused on helping each other, but also determined to share each other’s knowledge, support and leadership with the rest of world.

Darkbird18 is working with these Guys and girls in the Tribe Syndication Network which is base on the New Social Media Marketing Plan which work toward working as a Tribe(Group Thinking) to syndicate all ideas into one movement to make the group succeed as a whole. Sharing online business knowledge and resources to build the Social Media Tribe to rule the Social Media Network! The basic core value of the Internet to work as a group and share the virtual world for all to have because the power of the markets have gone back to the Buyer and the seller must work with this new concept and the Internet is the new playing grounds for this new market. Join the Tribe and lets work together and make it happen for all. Thanks for Your Time.
