Green Building Mastermind


If you are passionate about Green Building and Sustainability, then you may make a great asset and receive a ton of value from being a part of your very own Green Building Mastermind  (group of 10 peers) and experience tremendous growth both professionally and personally.

Napoleon Hill and the Mastermind concept was inspired by many conversations with one of the most successful businessmen in history, Andrew Carnegie, who attributed his entire fortune and success to his Mastermind Group.

In Napoleon’s book Think and Grow Rich, he described the Mastermind principle as, “The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony… no two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also referred to as the Mastermind.

How it Works

First, sign up ($3,000/yr) only $997/yr – you can cancel within the first month for a full-refund if you are not completely satisfied for any reason.

Second, undergo a short interview process with your Mastermind Facilitator, Charlie Cichetti, CEO of GBES. This is to help place you in a Mastermind Group that benefits you most.

Third, you will meet your group (groups include 10 peers and your facilitator Charlie) to learn, grow, and communicate with them via monthly 1-hour virtual meetings. These meetings will be led by Charlie Cichetti but will have the flexibility to evolve into whatever agenda best suits your group (sometimes that means bringing in guest speakers and experts for specific takeaways).

Then, communicate frequently with your group through a private Facebook group (or LinkedIn group to be determined based on the group’s wants/needs).

Throughout the year, take advantage with all the other benefits and features included in this offering. Add more sustainability credentials to your name, easily maintain them, earn that next promotion, hit and exceed your goals (and much more)!

Finally, meet your group in person in November at a private dinner (which coincides with the International Greenbuild Conference and Expo). In 2019, Greenbuild will be in Atlanta, GA, November 20-22.

The practice tests from your website were invaluable - I passed the actual exam with flying colours because of them. Allie
The practice exams helped me a lot to prepare for my exams. The sample exams closely resembles the real thing, so I was familiar with the type of questions asked in the actual exam. I don’t think I would have been able to pass the certification exams without your products. And I still rely on your practice exams for my upcoming LEED ND. Xye M. Lapuz, LEED AP ID+C
I just wanted to tell you thanks. Your testing set up was instrumental on my passing the LEED AP exam with 190 out of 200. The questions followed by explanation of answers was the key. Hope you continue to do it for the new LEEDs testing. Bob Congdon, LEED AP O+MThe Home Co., LLC
