All mastermind members must be genuine and honest friends. Their exclusive objective and intention must be to deliver something to the group. When everybody gives, then as a natural corollary everybody receives. What goes around comes around in bucks and bundles. Life is like a boomerang; what we send comes back. The relation among masterminds is a heart-to-heart relation based on the highest degree of sincerity, purity and singleness of the purpose. These friendships can be genuine, soul-to-soul and not just circumstantial and symbiotic.
