I feel that community is so powerful when it comes to business, and it’s equally important to build community in your personal life to. Just having people who will build you up when you are down, cheer you on when you do well, and are just there for you, is such an amazing feeling.
Being apart of the Rising Tide Society has really shifted my thinking, and how I handle relationships when it comes to my business. Their motto is, “Community Over Competition”. It’s such a simple statement, but a profound one.When you chose to share images with a vendor you worked with, shoot them an e-mail to ask if there is anything they need, or simply want to meet with them for coffee to talk, that is creating community. The more you choose to create community with those around you, the more you’ll find that your own business will start thriving.
Instead of asking what can others do for me, start asking others, “How may I serve you?” Businesses with a servant’s heart will always thrive.
