We are happy to have wrapped up the Proverbs 31 woman series and are excited for our brand new series “In Community”. To succeed, we all need to be in community, we need a support system of fellow women who can encourage and guide us in our journeys. As we are growing into Proverbs 31 women, we also need to be in community with other Proverbs 31 women.
More often than not, we prefer to go independent, we like to do things on our own. Sometimes it’s because of fear, lack of trust or ego, but as we strive to become more like Proverbs 31 women, it’s important that we learn to seek out other women so that we make an impact in the world and our businesses.
So how can we build a community to help your business?
Identify Your Mission and Your Values
The first step in building a community to support your business is to identify your mission and values. At the core of your business, what are you trying to achieve? What are your goals for the business, as well as for yourself and your team? Once you have identified these core intentions, it will be much easier to build a supportive community.
Don’t Try to Be Everything to Everyone
It is important to be clear about who your target audience is, and focus your energy and resources on building a community that will be beneficial for this group. Trying to appeal to everyone can quickly lead to overwhelm, as well as frustration from those who don’t feel like they are being catered to. Instead, focus on creating an authentic community that is centered around the needs and interests of your core target audience.
Identify Your Purpose and Share it With Those Around You
If you can share your purpose and what you hope to achieve with those in your community, they will be better able to help you reach your goals. If you are trying to create a sense of community among like-minded individuals, be clear about how these people can benefit from becoming involved.
Be a Resource for Others to Connect
In addition to establishing a sense of community around shared ideals and goals, you can also help create connections among those in your community through acts of service. This may involve helping individuals meet one another or connecting people who share common interests or goals.
Facilitate, Don’t Control
Rather than controlling what others are doing, do whatever it takes to support the efforts of others and make those actions easier. By doing so, you can help your community members achieve more together than they would be able to achieve on their own.
It’s Important to Be “In Community”…
Remember ladies, you cannot do it all alone! To be “in community” means you are part of a group, and this means working together to accomplish goals, solve problems, and build healthy connections.
You can also learn a lot from being in community with others. By sharing your experiences and expertise, you can help other people grow and learn. And by listening to the perspectives of others, you can gain new insights and ideas that may be valuable for your own personal growth or professional development.
This new series “In Community” is going to be informative, and insightful, so make sure to tune in every Thursday to learn more about the benefits of being in community, how to build one or how to identify one that is right for you.
