If you’re starting a business, you will need to find your tribe. Find your troop of followers who are your biggest fans; those who want to do business with you. Frequently, that tribe will have nothing to do with your current family and friends. You’ll need to reach out to the world and put yourself at risk of rejection to find those new tribe members.
Finding your tribe can be a scary thing.
The good news is that no matter what your story is, no matter who your ideal client is, you will be able to find that tribe. Build those relationships. Build a strong “Know, Like, and Trust” factor with your followers, your tribe.
These people are the backbone of your business and they will be the people who refer clients to you. They’ll help you get new business. You’ll help them too. It’s a synergistic relationship, this giving and taking with your tribe.
Too often, we women want to say “oh, it’s nothing”, rather than saying “thank you” for the compliments. Make yourself one of those people who graciously accepts the compliments and internalizes them.
You are worthy and you deserve to build that tribe — that base of raving fans that is going to help you grow your business and your life to help you reach your goals. It’s an amazing thing.
