Tribes and Community

Without community I’m not sure any of us would be in business. And it’s natural that some community members will always rise to the top to become leaders, and inspiration to others — makes sense, right?

But, I think it also makes sense to take time away from the influence of tribe leaders, and really dig deep into finding your own voice, and being a leader within your own community, without the influence of others.

I’m not sure if there’s a specific recipe, or a specific time in life when it’s good to step back — but it’s what has felt right for me over the past year or so.

This week I’m participating in Natalie Sisson's blog challenge (aff).

I’ve loved reading the posts others have written today about the mentors and people they would love to meet & the 3 questions they’d ask if /when they meet them….

And, I kept thinking I would eventually think of one person — and jump into fun of it all… but, I realize it’s just not the right time for me.

I don’t think I’m completely done with mastermind programs and mentorship completely, but I think it will be a while before I invest tens of thousands of dollars to be in a program.

In fact, I think my favorite place to be right now is within my own community.
