Are you building yours? Are you plugged into one? Is it important?
Yes, it is important. Just yesterday evening I was feeling as if everything I’ve been doing, not just the past three years, but this last year, and heck, these last twenty-three years, has been a huge waste of time. That all I’ve done is make a bunch of big mistakes that will bite me in the butt. Then I had a meeting this morning and I read a Facebook post before I went.
The Facebook post was by a man who was feeling down in the dumps about business and the future of it. I could feel his pain. But he cracked wise and made me laugh. I let him know that I did, yes indeed, laugh out loud — not LOL, but laugh OUT LOUD — at the funny he made. His reply was that he was happy he could contribute something positive to my morning.
I was happy about it, too.
Then I went to my meeting wherein I talked with two more fellow creatives with business minds; we are moving forward on three projects. We shared problems, came up with solutions, and left the meeting with smiles.
This is the community that I’m building. I love it.
