Meet James Dooley who's an SEO guy, affiliate marketer, entrepreneur and investor. He credits a lot of his success to being in mastermind groups and he likes organizing them too. 

He told me that he'd meet people at bars at conferences and they'd share more at the bar than they would speaking about SEO or anything else related to business or affiliate marketing. He shares a ton of insights as to what kind of discussions happen in mastermind groups and that if you're not contributing in a meaningful way, you'll not be invited back.
