FINDING POWER IN COMMUNITY – When I first began thinking about teaching and blogging, I found it incredibly hard to reconcile my need to encourage and positively educate other business owners with the idea of bringing forth complete transparency and honesty to those that needed to hear it.
As I started to develop these thoughts and tried to find a way to merge the two without radiating a negative vibe, I thought about my first few years in business and what I would have needed and how I would have needed to hear it. It became apparent to me that the gift of transparency and community IS encouraging, especially when you feel like you are going out there completely on your own.
So, I decided to share everything within the community, in the most graceful way possible, because as business owners and creatives we need to stand with one another. There are hundreds of groups and encouragers out there that will sugar coat and gloss over the hardest parts of running a business, and that isn’t how I want to operate.
I put value in knowing that someone is walking with you on your journey, and that both the good and bad things that are happening to you, are happening to others, too! Learn with one another, support one another, HELP one another. These are the concepts I think will empower you.
