THE ACCELERANT MASTERMIND GROUP
Why All MasterMind Groups suck
Except this one.
(And it’s sort of dicey too)
The Brad Adams Accelerant Master Mind Concept.
You’ve never seen anything as explosive as this before.
Brad Adams – a self confessed failure – has harnessed the decades-old Master Mind idea in a completely innovative and unexpected way. So suddenly there’s an easy, 1000-times proven and very affordable way to ensure that you and your business succeed far beyond your wildest dreams.
So what can a failure teach me about success, you might ask? Well, quite a bit actually, if his astounding results with companies just like yours are any indication.
Look first at the original idea of a mastermind group to see what a complete revolution Brad Adams has achieved here.
How vulnerable is your business to the winds of change?
According to Forbes magazine, only 4% of new businesses survive for 10 years. Why? Because, as a businessperson, you are all alone – a single small flame in the darkness. Sure you flare and cast a bit of light for a while, but, because you have to do everything, you soon burn out and, if not, even a small breeze can snuff your flame permanently.
This is by no means a new observation.
In the 1920’s, a self-help guru named Napoleon Hill noticed it as well. He interviewed dozens of millionaires of the time, including such captains of industry as Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, JD Rockefeller, BF Goodrich, John D Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. Hill distilled the common factors he had learned from these men about their business acumen into a series of booklets and eventually a book entitled The Law of Success in 16 Lessons, which he published in 1925. It was a great success. One of the most important laws, Hill believed, was Co-operation -essentially the idea that when it comes to business and to personal development, ‘two heads are better than one.”
In 1937 Hill condensed these laws down to 13 and explained them more fully in a new book called Think and Grow Rich – which quickly became one of the most popular business and self help books ever written – and is still selling briskly today, 80 years later.
In Think and Grow Rich, Hill expanded on the power of the master mind – the magic that seems to happen when two or more minds, work in harmony, towards a common cause. And get results greater than the sum of the parts.
In his time, many great titans of industry were also great friends, such as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Today we see the same thing happening, like the long time friendship between Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.
In both cases what you notice is that although these successful people are peers in terms of wealth and success, they are not competitors.
Although there is no evidence that Hill ever did get these captains of industry in one room, here’s the kind of thing that could have happened if he had managed to do that:
BF Goodrich (Tires) “You know, I get my raw rubber from the Far East. It comes to Los Angeles and I have to ship it by rail to the East coast to my factories. So I paint the side of each train car to say “Goodrich Tires on the move.” And get free advertising all across the country.”
Henry Ford (Cars) “Hot damn. I could do that with all the parts I ship to Detroit.”
Andrew Carnegie (Steel)” I could do that with all the iron ore I ship.”
JD Rockefeller (Railroads)” I own 10 rail lines. I could offer that car -painting idea as an extra service.”
Thomas Edison (Electricity) “Say what? What are you guys talking about? I can’t hear worth a damn anymore.”
This is the original concept of a master mind group. That one idea in one type of business can spark other ideas that the other businessmen would never have thought of, but that they can easily adapt to their own businesses.
Herein lies the problem with that original mastermind idea.
Yes. It’s true. One idea can set off a small firestorm among the members of an ordinary Master Mind Group. But it soon burns out and then what? Will there be another good idea at the next meeting. Or will the idea have any relevance for you? Unlikely. So you just sit around criticizing each others business model or members just decide they have better things to do and don’t attend anymore. Flame-out.
Brad Adams took that original MasterMind Group concept and powerfully re-invented it:
That’s the picture. Here are the 1000 words.
It’s called the Accelerant Master Mind Group. Adams took the basic Master Mind concept and added a proven accelerant. Just imagine if you could combine a typical small group flame with a full can of gasoline?
Boom time for you.
Suddenly you’ve got excitement. Everything is as bright as day, everybody feels the heat of new ideas and new ways of getting them done and nothing can put out that fire.
And new accelerants are added at every meeting. Adams’ Accelerant Group can help your business explode with new ideas for branding, positioning and promoting yourself, and more importantly, give you step by step proven ways to implement those ideas.
The Accelerant Group can cause one hell of a boom in your business -if you’re the perfect match.

What does Brad Adams know if he’s a self confessed failure?
It takes a burnout to show you how to keep your fire going. Here’s how Adams himself explains it:
“A successful person cannot tell you how to succeed.
They only know one way – the way they did it – and that way no longer exists. The market changes, the world changes and the customer changes. For example, one of the ways Henry Ford succeeded was to pay his workers $5 per day. $120 in today’s money) Try that today. See how successful you are. It’s probably less than minimum wage in most states.
But a failure now – his advice is always relevant, because he can teach you what not to do. I myself am a good example of that.
I consider myself a colossal failure.
When I was younger I was a very successful entrepreneur. I built a company with 240 employees and a 37 million annual turnover. I had the big home, multiple vacation homes, the fancy cars, the expensive bling, the exotic vacations and I got where I wanted to go in my own plane or helicopters. Oscar Wilde once said, “ Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing exceeds like excess” And that was how I lived.
I thought I had mastered the secret to success
– so I just kept doing business the same way. Then along came 2008 and everything changed. I nearly went bankrupt. Suddenly, because of my mistakes, my wife and children had to suffer. I had to cut back on my lavish lifestyle overnight, sell off my mansions, cars and trinkets…fast. I had to humiliate myself and renegotiate deals with suppliers and customers, all in their favor. I had to chop my 240 employees down to 80, and some of my most loyal long term colleagues and some of my best friends were on that cruel casualty list. I consider that entire episode to be one of the greatest failures of my life. And like an alcoholic who hasn’t had a drink in decades, yet still calls himself an alcoholic, I still call myself a failure, even though I have since succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. Why was the failure a success? Because I learned from it.
Here’s what I learned from that failure:
The most humbling lesson about my failure is this: IT DID NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN. My mistake is that I only had myself to listen to. I was all alone in my misery. Had I had access to a group of advisors from different types of businesses, who could have calmly told me what problems they were having and what they were dong to weather the storm; it would have sparked ideas in me. Even with my arrogance I could have adapted what they were doing to my business, when things started going south and quite likely avoided my life’s biggest failure.
But here’s the special sauce.
Today, Brad Adams, like a phoenix, has risen from the ashes of his early failure. He has started companies, grown companies and sold companies. He has shepherded start-ups too become unicorns. He has bought existing companies and taken them public. He has consulted with top 500 companies, to improve their business models and increase their bottom lines. He is one of the most sought after speakers among savvy businesses worldwide and is booked for more than 100 days a year for very well paid speaking engagements.
During decades of doing this kind of work with his own companies and with multinational corporations Adams noticed a number of common problems that destroy the potential for individuals, for groups and for companies of any size.
Through trial and error, working with his own companies and with Fortune 500 multi-nationals, Adams has developed a number of foolproof procedures to help wring the full potential out of anyone, any group or any company.
He calls them Accelerants.
These are the proven ingredients that have pushed his Accelerant Mastermind Groups into the forefront of ultra- successful business tools that have inspired explosive growth in businesses of all sizes and all kinds.

Why pretty well all other Master Mind groups suck.
- They’re too damned big
Many of these groups are like rock concerts; they have hundreds if not thousands of members. If you can speak at all it will only be for a couple of minutes and there is no time for anyone to talk specifically about your business in your locality. They are like gatherings of some brainwashed zombie cult. Research suggest that Master mind groups work best when there are only 8 to 10 members.
- The group contains direct competitors
Part of the Master Mind idea is to bring up all your plans and strategies and tactics for getting new customers and improving your services and let the other group members comment on them. If there are direct competitors sitting across the table when you do this, do you think they don’t take notice and use it to steal your customers? Wouldn’t you? Mastermind groups work best when every member can trust every other member not to take advantage – which only happens when members are not competitors.
- The group are not peers
If a group contains seem wildly successful people with big companies as well as enthusiastic strivers from smaller firms, there really is no meeting of the minds. The problems and concerns of big companies are not at all the same as those of small company owners. It’s as if they are speaking different languages. MasterMind groups work best when all members have similar concerns.
- There is no implementation of ideas
Ideas are a dime a dozen. You’ve probably got a million of them yourself. Adapting them to your business and actually implementing them are what you joined to find out. So avoid big groups that promise lots of ideas. It usually means you’ll be left with no idea – why you joined. The Master Mind concept works best when you can be shown, step by step, how ideas can be tailored to your company and put into practice.
- There is no personal follow-up
Although it sounds easy, it is in fact very difficult to take an idea that worked for someone else and make it work for you. It needs to be nipped and tucked before you even get started and it needs constant tweaks when it is up and running to ensure it stays on track and benefits you. With the vast majority of Master Mind groups, you are left on your own to try and figure all this stuff out. And good luck with that.
- The celebrity guru only turns up for selfies
Celebrity financial gurus, when they turn up for the annual Master Mind Group extravaganza, have to be all things to all people. So the speeches they give, although they may be rousing, are usually quite general in nature. There are no particular insights for you. They shake a few hands, let people take a few selfies and then disappear for another year. Even though they are the main reason you joined, you often don’t get to meet them, seldom get to talk to them and never get any advice from them abut your particular business. They say people used to pester Andy Warhol all the time for portraits. He would take tens of thousand of dollars from them, take a quick, out of focus Polaroid and send them on their way. They would frame that Polaroid and treasure it, thinking they had gotten their money’s worth. And who knows, maybe they had. But you certainly won’t.
- You are pressured to join right away.
Virtually all Master Mind groups use the same old pitch – Hurry. Hurry. Hurry. Only limited spaces remain. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity. This is sort of a very real demonstration of the old adage “A fool and his money are soon parted.” So don’t be foolish. Take your time. Consider the benefits carefully. And beware the other type of scam practiced with these less than honorable groups – the idea that there are levels and you must start at the Stupid Level and proceed through the more expensive Stupider Level and then ascend to the exorbitantly expensive Stupidest Level – where finally it is assumed you’ll finally begin to see results. But don’t hold your breath, even at this high level. Try to find a group like Brad Adams’ Accelerant Group – where there is only one level – the one where you prosper right from the start.
- They’re too damned expensive
Many celebrity Master Mind Groups charge over US$100,000 per year to join, And each group has dozens if not hundreds of members. Often thousands. Other than the prestige of belonging to such a group, it’s hard to understand what benefits members get. Even pompous not-so-prestigious groups want $50,000 to $75 000 with no significant gain for members. It’s madness. Everyone wants to get in on the fashion of belonging to such a high profile group which ends up being more of a status symbol than a business advantage. A good Master Mind group should be an investment that pays for itself many times over, rather than a prohibitive cost.
Why Brad Adams Accelerant Groups don’t suck.
- All Accelerant Groups are Small Accelerant groups – 8 to 10
- No direct competitors in any Accelerant Groups
- All peers with similar concerns in every Accelerant Group.
- Accelerant Groups stress Idea Implementation
- Brad Adams will personally follow up and help you tweak and twerk
- Non-celebrity guru. Brad is an under the radar guru. Shuns limelight.
- No pressure. Don’t sign up until you are comfortable.
Affordable. Very much so. Enough said.
Why even an Accelerant Master Mind Group might be dicey.
You might not be a match. Your company might be too big. Or too small. Or you might not be prepared to work hard enough to get the benefits. Because prosperity doesn’t just fall in your lap. It requires a lot of effort and thought on your part as well, even with the back up of a well-managed Accelerant Maser Mind group.
