    Mastermind Meetup #2 Dream a little Dream

    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 Richand 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

     

    Takeaways:

    • 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!

  • Masterminds

    Masterminds Welcome!

    Wyndavere City Proudly welcomes “Mastermind meetup.”

    @ Cafe’ Make, Wyndavere City !

    The Bravest thing you can do is follow your dreams, and reaching them is dependent on a strong support system.

    Some of us are blessed  to have great support from friends and family.  Sadly, this is  usually not the case. 

    Do your friends tug at your arm to go out with them when you mention working towards your dream? Is your family nagging you to “get your head out the clouds and get a Real Job?” I know I know, we’ve all been there, we love them for who they are and cherish their  company but let’s admit it, they’re not the best crowd when we are trying to reach our dreams.

    We all need someone to believe in us.

     Why not let me be that someone to you while you be that someone to me? I need you to pick me up when I fall and I promise to push you onward when you want to stop.

    That’s exactly what the MasterMind meetups are for! To help you get the support you need to go after your goals. We want to help you be courageous, We want you to be courageous, tackle the big dreams,the ones that keep you up at night….You know, the ones even YOU thinks are to nuts to to go after!

    Mastermind Meetups will be held twice on Sundays, once in the morning once in the evening ensuring everyone is full of positive energy and ready to crush it Monday morning.

     

    Get ready to  take on your goals!

    Our first official meetup will be:

    June 24th,2018

    6am-7am SLT and 6pm-7pm SLT

    @ Cafe’Make

    Bldg 2 , 2nd Floor

    Wyndavere City

     

    This will be a meet and greet where we’ll all introduce ourselves and review (with your input) the goals of the Mastermind Meetups.

    This is NOT a Second Life builders club, anyone with a dream is welcome and encouraged to join. These discussions are lead by Wynd Ling, and totally FREE (donations are always welcome!)

     

    Please join the Wyndavere City Second Life group or follow us on Twitter, Subscribo,or @ Wyndaveres.com to keep up to date on future events. Upon joining the group send a quick IM to Wynd Ling and request a “Mastermind” title. I look forward to  seeing you all there!

    Wynds tips #4 SEO Search Engine Optimization

    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!

    SEO Search Engine Optimization

    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.

    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.

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.

    All items are between L$0 – L$80.
