With over 40 years of experience, Kaya Singer, business owner, entrepreneur, mentor and author of the book Wiser & Wilder, says that success comes to those who focus on being authentic, in the right circle of people, in a balanced and actualized way, with a strong voice. It also means being willing to face the unhealed parts of yourself that hold you back. Kaya helps women to build businesses that feeds their souls by finding their tribes. Every one of us has a purpose and a mission. Building a business requires you to walk your soulful path and manifest your vision. Her new book is for is designed to help people who not only know their purpose and mission, but are ready to walk a soulful path and that manifests their vision with the right people.
“Finding your tribe is perhaps one of the most important steps to focus on in business,” she says. In this piece Kaya provides The 2Inspire Network some key ways to grow a tribe that everyone can put into action immediately.
Your tribe is made up of all the people who love your business, products, services, and you. It's your fans, current and potential customers and clients, and your colleagues. They enjoy hearing what you're up to, and they spread the word to others about your business. it's just as true now as it has been down through the ages: women thrive in circles with other women (Think quilting bees, knitting circles, etc., and now through businesses.)
To grow your tribe, increase your fan base, and continue to build your business, you need to connect with others. This may seem obvious, but not everyone does this strategically.
Here are seven important key ways to grow your tribe:
Search for Women’s Networking Groups and Business Clubs in your Local Area.
Do online searches through the social media channels.
Tap in and take advantage of your own networks.
Set up coffee or tea dates with women you meet and feel a connection toward.
Start your own Meet Up group and invite people to come.
Go to a local tea shop or cafe with your lap top and work from there.
Build a community on social media.
Join groups on social media.
Start Your own small Mastermind Group.
Look for ways you can promote others.
Connecting with supportive people not only helps build your business, but it builds real community, plus it helps you to grow personally as an individual; this is particularly helpful if you tend to be more introverted.
