    RAFFLE ITEM: I'm giving one "Pre-MCAT Years" account away for free - for an entire year!
    [​IMG]

    So, what is the Medical Mastermind Community and how can it help?

    A "Mastermind" group is defined as two or more people, working in perfect harmony toward a definite objective. Therefore, the Medical Mastermind Community is a group of people (students in college and medical school, doctors, test prep companies, and government entities) interested in the success of premedical students.​
    That's who we are, and here's what we can do for you:​

    1. Define specific goals for your MCAT score and help you achieve them
    2. Increase your confidence for interviews
    3. Teach you how to study
    4. Speed up your reading
    5. Decrease your frustration
    6. Allow more time for social interests
    7. Help you overcome self doubt (arguably the biggest benefit for your entire life)

    "Have no fear."

    No matter how your Pre-Med career started off, you need to understand that people from all walks of life and academic backgrounds start medical school every year. These include people that never made a B in their life and those that failed out of college, sometimes for a number of semesters (such as Dr. Dan's Pre-Med club president)!​

    It's easy to see how you measure up by comparing yourself to this following checklist:​

    • I could use help with organizational skills to stay on top of my coursework​
    • I could use help with my confidence level – I doubt myself frequently​
    • I could use help test-taking skills and learning more study techniques that work for medical students​
    • I could use help with the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)​
    [​IMG]
    What we see over and over again are students that don't do well as a Pre-Med at first, then give up on the process because of someone's opinion – either their own self-doubt or a so-called adviser that discourages the pursuit of a medical career.

    In practically ALL cases of discouragement, the advice is not coming from a person that went to medical school themselves, or if he/she is a physician has not figured out how to be happy in their chosen occupation.​
    "From now on, only take advice from people who have done what you are trying to do."

    Let's face it, the education system in the United States is in bad shape by comparison to other countries – and it is getting worse. Unless you come from a family that emphasizes early reading skills and diligence in homework, or contains people with higher degrees, you will not be adequately mentored to make the high grades you need in your freshman year to set you up for good overall and science GPAs.

    "It's not your fault, but it is your responsibility."

    [​IMG]
    By surrounding yourself with people who already possess the qualities you want, you will slowly acquire a different way of thinking, studying, and organizing your plans to accomplish the goals you want in your own life.
    Perhaps a parent or mentor has told you to "choose your friends wisely." Well, if you want to become a physician, you can't find better friends than this! But don't take our word for it, read our Medical Mastermind Community testimonials to see for yourself the difference we are making in people's lives – it's much more than a test score!

    When you join the Medical Mastermind Community, you will gain immediate online access to our entire curriculum. It can seem overwhelming, so we enroll you in a monthly email series to gently walk you through the steps and help keep you on track.

    The very first thing you need to do is listen to Napoleon Hill's Science of Personal Achievement audio course, which is included with your membership. If you get nothing else out of your training with us, your life will be immensely blessed by the teachings and philosophy of the world's first success teacher, commissioned by Andrew Carnegie himself!

    The second thing you need to do is join us on a New Member Webinar. Whether you call in or login to view the slideshows, this teleconference will give you specific direction for your particular situation so that you can start getting results in your own life and join the long list of people that tell their friends all about us!

    The third thing you need to do is visit the "My Blog" forum and start a New Thread titled by your first and last name. This is a members-only forum and you can not view others' forum posts there until you pay for an active membership. This private, personal blog is for you to post your action plan and document your progress. Some choose to get feedback on their personal essays there, as other members of the Community love to help each other out.

    If you're ready to grow professionally and personally by accepting our offer for help, then sign up now!

    Thanks for your interest! In fact, I just put up a new testimonial this morning.

    Here they are...

    The following are REAL emails and videos I have received:

    Feb. 2011 “Before I joined Mastermind I was truly lost. I had a purpose/dream that I had always harbored but some how lack a way to achieving it. Your site has help me to become unglued from my situation, changing from just thinking into doing and changing from frustration to focused will. Its still a long road in front of me with many obstacles and a lot of nay sayers. But with what you have created and share I no longer feel alone nor do I feel afraid.” Bryant

    Dec. 2010 “I’ve been a fan of yours for years and have successfully moved from the middle of no-where in Mississippi after high school to getting interviews at great schools. I owe a lot of my success to you, your podcasts and website. Thank you. As you’ve mentioned, getting interviews are tough. However, performance during the interview can be equally difficult. This timeline allows students to anticipate and correctly identify these shortcomings, and I know from following you these past 2-3 years, you give the students everything they need to survive this “game”. Thank you for taking time out of your life to helping those that are sincere and committed to giving care.” Jake, Middle-of-Nowhere, Mississippi

    Nov. 2010 “I never thought that gaining knowledge about medical school would be this easy. It has always seemed so cryptic to me, like being an astronaut, or in the CIA. I feel lucky to have the luxury to download podcasts and listen to them while I drive, while I run, while I take a lunch break, literally anywhere! The real accomplishment of this podcast is giving me confidence. It makes me feel like I am not wasting my time, it is not too late to pursue this, and this dream can be a reality! I hope this serves everyone just as much as it is serving me!” U.S. Soldier




    Sep. 2010 “I just wanted to congratulate you on the success of your course materials and in getting your message out. I started listening to your podcast two years ago when I started considering trying to transition into the career as a physician. I’ve watched your websites and podcasts grow. Recently when AMSA began starting a medical mastermind community to support medical students, I thought it had the overall intentions of the groups you were working on. Come to find out, it appears that you are one of the driving forces behind it! Congratulations. Best regards,” Brian H. from Boston Massachusetts


    [​IMG]
    Aug. 2010 “First I would like to thank you for spending the time to help those who have decided to pursue the medical career. I for one would have never thought I could even stand a chance at attempting to become a physician, but after listening to your pod-cast I have a new faith in becoming one.” Eugene Javorsky from Kochi, Japan



    Jun. 2010 “Big ups to you! I appreciate you taking to the time to assess my needs for my premed journey over the phone. In particular, I liked how stayed focused during the conversation and helped me come up with a plan of action for success. I’ve been taking heed and feel more confident. Thank you : )” Bill Christian from Orlando, Florida

    May 2010 “I have enjoyed listing to your videos, and reading you emails they are every inspirational and I commend you for your service to others by helping us. Thank you for your time.” Randy Freeman from Tulsa, Oklahoma

    Apr. 2010 “I am a non-trad premed preparing for the MCAT, and i have been a member of Medical Mastery for about a month. I received my first disc about 3 weeks ago and the entire module is by far one of the best resources on the market! The Free Mind format is easy to use, and makes the information not only easily accessible, but the meat of the material is unlike anything else online or sold on the market. This is BY FAR one of the most significant bodies of information available for pre-med and medical students and I am so appreciative for all you are doing for us. Thank you for using some of what little free time you have to make the next generation of doctors prepared academically, emotionally, economically, and spiritually for the fantastic journey we have ahead.” Toni Ognibene from Fresno, California

    Mar. 2010 “Thank you very much. I would just like to tell you that I am so glad I ran across your podcast while searching for premed-related items on iTunes! You are extremely helpful and encouraging, and I feel much less scared of the whole application process as a result [​IMG] ” Sukriti Dabral from Boston University ’09

    Feb. 2010 “Your podcasts have been a tremendous amount of help! Keep up the good work! Thank you.” Brittin Southard, a senior in High School


    Jan. 2010 “Hi, Dr. Williams! I just wanted to say hello and THANK YOU! for everything that you do for us pre-med students. You are inspiring and such a positive beacon on an often daunting and unlit path. You seem to squeeze 48 hours out of a 24 hour day with everything that you do! You are truly a blessing to me. I am really excited about the new community.” Heather de Anda from Austin, Texas

    Dec 2009 “I think this service is an absolute Awesome idea. You are showing us a side of the medical field that many institutions do not delve into. I am looking forward to future lectures!!! And just my personal advice to Dr. Daniel. Don’t ever change your personality and attitude. They’re great up-lifters for those of us who are looking for role models.” Adil from Stafford, Texas

    Nov. 2009 “After asking for correct and supportive guidance from various people and sources, I thought Daniel was the best and he is really supportive. I can’t wait for this entire process of coursework to start. After finding a person who has been through a lot of struggles, I am really proud to get help from him and i think its great and would highly recommend this to any premed student. thanks Daniel for everything. I feel a lot more confident about my dream and appreciate all your support. Thanks once again.”Sweta Patel from Cleveland, Texas

    Oct. 2009 “The lecture series are great because we often don’t know the real thing about med school. All we know about is TV shows, movies, friends, etc. So the lectures provide us with a real-life experience and gives us moral support. And we really need this most of the time.” Stephanie from Lima, Peru

    Sep. 2009 “So far, the lectures seem helpful. The insider information is usually helpful. I am very interested in hearing more about more productive ways to study, medical school interviews, and balancing family and medical school.” Katerina from Tomsk, Russia

    Aug. 2009 “I really liked the lecture a lot. After hearing your story, I am a little more confident about myself and my chances of getting into a med school.” Shafi from India

    Jul. 2009 “I think the lecture series are informative and dispel any misconceptions that some premed students have, like me for example. I appreciate the opportunity to know about the background info for getting into med school.” Bulaguru , from Dallas, Texas


    Jun. 2009 “The information given in today’s lecture helped tremendously. It helped to reassure me that persistence can help me to achieve my goals of a career in medicine. Sometimes discouraged by peers and counselors, but the info from the (your) session helped to give back the spark of wanting to pursue this career (especially from someone who has gone through the process).” Jessica from Greenville, Texas

    May 2009 “I am an undergraduate in my junior year and believe this course will inform me of the next steps I need to make to advance toward a medical career.” Patricia from Houston, Texas

    Apr. 2009 “The presentation was really well organized and I appreciated all the effort that was put towards helping out premed students and preventing them from changing their minds.” Saliva from Karachi, Pakistan

    Mar. 2009 “I was so happy to find your information on iTunes. I have been trying to decide where I was going with my career for a few years, since I left active duty with the Army. I always wanted to do something big, and find a way to make a change. I just kept finding myself taking the easy way out, and taking short vocational classes that ended up at a dead end. I was interested in becoming a physician but I thought you had to be rich, or come from a better background to make it. Your podcast really gave me the confidence and motivation I needed. Thank you for putting this together and keep up the good work. You are making more of a difference than you could ever imagine.” Ron from Cedar Hill, Texas

    Your program is very interesting!

    So there are many many MCAT commercial review packages, and med school admissions counseling programs available. What makes your program rise above the rest?

    If I became a member, what activiteis would happen on a daily/weekly basis? What is the time commitment?


    Thank you,

    Great timing! The videos I have in my YouTube channel are when the Community was growing up and deciding what we were all about, a few years ago:

    [​IMG]

    So, there are videos, but they are outdated.

    The cool thing is that this very week I am figuring out how to produce HD videos in a new, mini-studio in my home office.

    I've been considering doing a Q & A video series for podcast listeners. What do you think?

    You could be the first, in fact.

    The vision is this: one of my newsletter subscribers replies to the email that sends them the free Speed Reading course or USMLE Audiobooks, for example, and asks me a question.

    Then, with my HD camera and its convenient SD card, I turn on the lights and provide a face-to-face answer that covers their situation accurately and thoroughly.

    What do you think?

    Oh, wait. Is this another Mastermind developing this week? He who has ears, let him hear - this his how the Medical Mastermind Community works!

    Hey Dr. Dan!
    Although I'm not yet a member, I can tell all of you from personal experience that in my 2 months of browsing the Medical Mastermind Community, I have become over-the-top motivated to continue to pursue my dreams. Dr. Dan has undoubtedly transformed my way of thinking into a more positive approach and I can tell you all right now that he is a man that can help you to become not only a physician, but a physician who loves what he or she does. Everyone should seriously consider looking into a membership, if the finances are available!!! Count me in for this raffle, Dr. Dan!

    All you have to do is sign up for the Free Speed Reading for Medical School course, then the system will automatically email you the first 2 videos (101 and 102) absolutely free. You can unsusbcribe at any time.

    If you decide to join the Mastermind Community, then you get the rest of the 9 Study Techniques and Test-Taking Skills modules.

    My entire curriculum is laid out like this: Numbered Pull-Down Menus --> PDF workbooks --> Video tutorial.

    Here's an example:

    As a client, what would I expect to get out of your community that I could not get for free via SDN/youtube/wikipremed and such?

    Hi, guys! Thanks for the interest.

    I don't knock free advice from YouTube but you get what you pay for!!

    The Medical Mastermind Community uses live webinars for students to share their points of view. The personality of the group increases insight into the subject matter to a higher plane of understanding.

    This must be experienced because, at first glance, the free resources do the same thing. Now, don't get me wrong - free resources do have a lot of value.

    But do you know when you figure out which advice is any good?

    After its too late.

    Why?

    Because until you graduate from medical school, you don't have the insight to judge whether what you're reading in a forum is any good or not. In many cases, it's full of nonsense and premises based on incomplete information which misleads the noob.

    Therefore, I suggest that if you're content with where you are getting your mentorship, by all means stick to it!

    If you want to try something else, or are interested in the free Speed Reading Course for Medical Students, or want to be automatically entered in a free monthly raffle for a Lifetime Membership to the Medical Mastermind Community, then take the red pill. Give it a try yourself.
