Come Join Us In Our MMA Meetings Where We Come Together To “SUCCESSERCISE" (® 1970-2010)

Our Club's Definite Major Purpose Is: "To Help Our Members Achieve And Maintain Greater Financial Security, Freedom, Happiness And Peace Of Mind - IN LESS TIME - WITH LESS EFFORT"

Rick Gettle - MMA Founder - Has Been Teaching Napoleon Hill's Success Principles Full Time Since 1970
As you know, to remain successful, you must have a maintenance program. Just like a healthy and strong body; if you don’t continue to work out, you start slipping backwards. So - To fulfill this important need, we have developed a great “Success Achievement And Maintenance Program.” We call it The Master Mind Alliance Success Club. At our M.M.A. Meetings we come together as a group to “Successercise.” - To continue studying and mastering success principles, brainstorm on how to solve problems and overcome obstacles, give support to each other, and to network with other success achievers.

Achieving success and maintaining success are two different animals. The world is filled with people who at one time were very successful, but without structure to maintain their success, they started falling backward, becoming more negative, losing their inspiration, their vision, their energy, and eventually -- losing hope.

The Master Mind Alliance Success Club is: A Brotherhood Of Achievers -- A Positive Thinker’s Club -- A Goal Achiever’s Club -- A Financial Security Experts Club -- A Leadership Development Club -- A Success Study Club - A Support Club, And a SUCCESS MAINTENANCE CLUB all rolled into one.

Our meetings are well structured so that you will participate and continue to learn more about success principles for greater success, personal freedom, health and vitality, financial security, happiness and peace of mind in your life.
Most self-help programs: Motivational seminars; books; and cassette tapes; provide excellent ideas to help you on your path to achieving MORE success.

To fulfill your needs and wants and overcome your obstacles and
adversities in life - in less time - and with less effort

Come Join Us In Our “Master Mind Alliance Success Club”
Meetings In A Sprit Of Harmony, Teamwork And Cooperation
As We Mastermind The Achievement And Maintenance Of Our Goals Together

An Avalanche Of New Knowledge, Wisdom, Information, Changes, New Products, New Ideas, New Technologies And New Challenges Are Compounding So Fast Every Day That Most People Are Having A Hard Time Keeping Up. Many Are Falling Behind.

In a constant effort to do more with less, our world seems to become more frenzied every day. Security issues and national politics change rapidly. We have to know more, be more, and do more than ever before. There seems to be no time for planning future personal or career moves, or thinking creatively about business issues.

One avenue that has been working well for people for many years is to belong to The Master Mind Alliance Success Clubs International and attend our fast paced Successercising brainstorming meetings.

Belonging to a MMA chapter gives you contacts and resources to make planning and goal setting easier. The group helps you stay on course when everything seems to be pulling you in different directions. Master Mind Alliance groups are spawning all over the country, offering support and specialized knowledge to people in every industry and sector.

A Master Mind Alliance group consists of people who work together in absolute harmony to achieve diverse goals. The group members come together at regular intervals to brainstorm ideas, share knowledge, and help each other discover the tools to realize their dreams.

While these people work well together, they may be very different from each other. The common element is that each draws something from the others, and each contributes freely to the group. It is the focusing of each mind on a common issue that triggers thoughts not readily available to one mind. Those in the group draw upon their unique experiences and specialized knowledge to help each other.

When many minds concentrate on a single point, the activity generates a power over and above the sum total of each of the individual minds. It is as though an invisible force joins the group and provides additional insight. As a result, the group members accomplish more than any one person could have accomplished individually.


You will be listened to in a safe and nonjudgmental environment.

You will have the support and encouragement of a network of successful people to move your business or project forward.

You dramatically increase your chances of reaching your goals, as a group of people will assist you brainstorming solutions and action steps.

By sharing your goals and results you are motivated by accountability.

You will have more fun while others cheer you on to greater results.

Get helpful feedback & bounce ideas off of the group before you implement action, saving yourself time energy and money.

Find solutions to problems from proactive, objective people who want you to succeed.

Gain increased self-mastery and leadership skills as you support and coach other group members.

Be a part of something special...

Develop meaningful relationships with others.

Rick’s Comments

In 1954, I started reading all of Napoleon Hill’s books and since then read each one over thirty-five times (I stopped counting): Law of Success, Think and Grow Rich, The Master Key to Riches, Grow Rich With Peace of Mind, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, You Can Work Your Own Miracles and Succeed and Grow Rich Through Persuasion.

In 1970, I bought a distributorship to market Napoleon Hill’s “Philosophy of Success” program and started teaching his Success Course. I created The Master Mind Alliance Success Club to help my students follow through and put the principles into practice. In addition to teaching the course in hotels, meeting rooms and in-house in many large and small corporations, I also taught the course in San Quentin Prison and at the Delancy Street Foundation for ex-cons, pimps, prostitutes, drug and alcohol addicts.

In 1974, I received a phone call from a Mr. John Haid who was the president of the Napoleon Hill Academy. He said that he heard quite a bit about my classes and me and that he wanted to fly out to San Francisco to meet with me. When we got together, he told me he was going to set up a Napoleon Hill Academy Franchise in Northern California and wanted to find the most qualified person to run it. He was here for about a week and interviewed several eager people who wanted that privilege. Many of them were very successful and had lots of money to gladly pay for the franchise. After several meetings with each one of us, John decided that I was the most knowledgeable on Napoleon Hill’s Success principles and gave the franchise to me. I am still sharing these principles in my Science of Success Achievement Course that my students are studying today.
