Mastermind session - Esther's Echo

If you don't know the book "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill you won't have heard of a "Mastermind" meeting.

Something as simple as getting together to focus on one problem. Using all your mental power, skills and resources to help another.

The cause is good -but I'm doing it because of the individual:
Matthew Cimone

He's had an interesting journey so far:
- International student with ov
erseas postings
- UofT Award winner

- UN Goodwill Ambassador
- Founding a charity under 30

He's CEO of Esther's
Echo - they use digital media to link initiatives spearheaded by local community leaders in the developing world and student-led initiatives in Canada with potential donors and investors online. The model directs funds into the hands of effective leaders and efficient projects that are often overlooked by large international organizations..

Kind of like Canadian Kiva, but using not just money but Information Technology.

He's made my alma mater proud, he's helping my beloved College at UofT, he's the kind of person we need more of in non-profit and network, at this stage of their game, they could use our help.

One night's investment, let's help Matthew change the world?

Only 15 spots free.

6:30pm to 8:30pm
Green Beanery -
( Toronto, Bloor and Bathurst )

Use your skills to help a great peer.

Let me know if you're interested on LinkedIn or via email.

Even if you can't come I can send you some notes after and you can comment and send suggestions!

  1. What a worthy initiative Paul!

    I'm currently listening to Napoleon Hill recorded live. Right now he's talking about setting up a Mastermind. He says the most important element in a member is dependability followed by loyalty and then ability.
