Mastermind #1 Recap & Mastermind Meetup #2
On Sunday June 24,2018 we had our very first mastermind Meetup & it was a great success! Thank you all for joining us for our very first Mastermind Meetup (cheers wildly.)
For those who missed out I’ll be submitting a recap after each and every Sunday’s Meetups combining useful information from both the 6am-7am & the 6pm-7pm sessions, but please do join us at @ Cafe’ Make, Wyndavere City to get the most out of the project. Showing up is the first step to succeeding at ANYTHING!
During our flagship meetup we covered a range of topics from psychology- why you don’t believe you can do it, or why you lack motivation, and even some stories told by other Masterminds. Here is a recap:
Host introduction: Hello I’m Wynd Ling, SecondLife resident of over 11 years (and counting), artist, architect, entrepreneur, leader, teacher and life loving psychology junkie info sponge!
Mastermind Introduction: The idea of mastermind groups was first introduced in the 1930’s in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” and later in “The Success Alliance.” A Mastermind it is a group of people with drive, determination, and love of their craft who give each other support and brainstorm ideas to help them reach their fullest potential,and ultimately fulfill their dreams.
The goal of these meetups is the same, support each other because success is determined not by drive alone but by the people you surround yourself with. A group of supportive high energy peers will be worth more to you than a certificate or money because of the time it will save you to reach your dreams sooner.
Look back through history, all of us could have been Einstein or De Vinci, or even some of my personal heroes, Oprah and Ellen, if only we’d had that one person who believed in us, even when we did not believe in ourselves.
I invite you to be that person for someone else and let us be your people too.
See these ideas in action with Barbara Sher’s Tedx Talk
- Dreams are built by connection. Networking and surrounding yourself by people who want to help solve your problems.
- A dream should be something within your control…So as much as I too would like world peace, I can not control all the people in the world so this is not a good, concrete goal to go after, though I’m not suggesting you don’t do your part by being a good human.
- A dream needs a problem to solve, as Barbara Says “Even people who don’t like you will want to help you solve your problem.”
For next Sunday’s Mastermind Meetup July 1st please think up a dream you want.
Example: I want to tour the world
Obstacle: but I don’t have the money (finally “But’s” do matter!)
Can’t wait to see you all there, Dream big friends!

Wynd’s Tips #4 SEO ( Search Engine Optimization ) it’s for SecondLife too!
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for you! If you Optimize it they will come!
Second Life is a search Engine no different from Google.
Grab your customers & the Second Life Search engine’s attention by giving your products User-friendly/Search Engine friendly names, descriptions, & don’t forget to check off the “Show in Search” option on every new creation!
Be Seen & Heard!
If you don’t know what Search Engine Optimization is, think of it as the thesis statement to sum up a story. , At a quick glance, you want the search engine and your customers to know exactly what it is you have to sell.
Pick the most important words for both people and the Second Life search to know what it is you are selling and why they should buy it.
Algorithm priority is typically given to Username, Store Name, Creator Name, first 60 characters of the object title, first 160 characters to the object’s description. Make use of all of these fields to maximize your exposure through keyword rich copy.
Look for a Full 2 part series for both in-world products and SecondLife Marketplace listings in the coming weeks and then the second part 2 weeks from then.
OOooorr you can even contact me in world for a one on one chat over a cup of coffee at Wyndavere’s in SecondLife.
The views are elegant with framed sunsets, beaches, steampunk ships and architecture dancing across the walls of the Cafe’Make Gallery space. Come in and enjoy the intimate cafe’ space , the perfect place to gather with your most creative friends.
This week’s artist additions are some of the very best shots of my early day Second Life adventures. The ships and seashores pull you in, and if you wish to stay forever captivated you can purchase these photographs for a modest drop of $L into my dream bucket.

These photos are a collection of over 11 years touring the Second Life grid where I’ve captured some of the most beautiful landscapes residents have created.
Taking photos in Second Life is one of my all-time favorite pastimes, if you should ever wish to grab your camera and head out to explore with me, please join Wyndavere City Second Life Group to be informed about future photo expeditions.
Also coming this week is another First for Wyndavere’s. I’ve been creating in Second Life for as long as I have been a part of this wonderful community. In that time so much has changed as prims gave way to sculpt later to be replaced by full fledged CGI mesh models and rigging.
In efforts to make room for newer creations, Wyndavere’s is proud to have our first ever discount store! Located on the second Level Of Wyndavere’s & packed full of “Circa Noobie” vintage works. This section serves both as a museum of progress and a great place to pick up some “oldies but goodies” creations at extremely discounted rates.
