The Greatest Minds In The World Succeeded Through Peer Groups
Many people don’t know this but peer groups have been around for a long time and the most successful people in the world have been in them. The concept was made famous by Napoleon Hill in his book “Think and Grow Rich”. Hill learned about masterminds from his mentor Andrew Carnegie and learned even more about them when he studied and wrote about 300 of the most successful people in the world at that time.
Thomas Edison was part of a mastermind group called The Vagabonds with Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, John Burroughs and Luther Burbank.
J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were in the same mastermind group called The Inklings.
William Hertz and John Wrigley were a part of a group in Chicago called The Chicago 6.
Benjamin Franklin was part of a mastermind group called The Junto.
- Walt Disney was part of a group called The Nine Old Men.
- Dave Ramsey, Dan Miller and Aaron Walker are in a group called The Eagles.
- The President of the United States has his cabinet. They all have different expertise but when you put them together, the collective knowledge helps them all make better decisions.
What Makes Impact Legacy and Meaning Groups Different?
There are all kinds of groups out there and many are great at their specific focus. However, very few of them are focused on your whole life and not just one aspect of business or personal life. Impact Legacy and Meaning Groups are there to help you throughout all aspects of life. We know that people aren't just robots designed to make money. We also know that your business life will affect your personal life and vice versa.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Peer Group?
Peer Groups are simply a group of like-minded business owners and leaders who meet regularly to help each other improve their businesses and their lives. They share ideas, challenges, knowledge, experience and strategies in an effort to help the entire group rise to that next level. To give you an example of what a mastermind or peer group can be, imagine for a moment that you have a dollar and I have a dollar. If we exchange dollars, then we still each have a dollar. However, if we each have an idea and we exchange ideas, now we each have two ideas. Now take that analogy and multiply it times 10 people. That is a what a peer group does.
How Do Our Peer Groups Work?
Groups of no more than 12 people.
