Recently, I was privileged to become part of a local group of business owners. The group, Rising Tide Society: Tuesdays Together, is made up of store owners, writers, calligraphers, designers, photographers, event planners, and other creatives who believe that working with each other is more important than competing against others in their field.
As we gathered together in event coordinator, Sara -anne Caudle of Sara-anne Photography‘s studio, we talked about how to build a better social media presence, the struggles we face in managing our website and our hopes and dreams for the future.
As we talked, we found that many of us had the same struggles – no time to work on our own website, fears of committing to starting a blog, balancing work and family, finding time to just unwind and others. But we also recognized that each of us had talents and skills that we could use to help each other grow.
In going to that meeting, I was reminded again that no matter what the problem, there is always someone who has “been there -done that” and is happy to lend a hand to help someone else navigate the path they are called to explore. Being a business owner is a great blessing, but it is also one that is made better when you can connect with others and do life together. I can’t wait to see how the Tuesday’s Together group evolves and how we work together to build stronger businesses!
***Tuesdays Together is part of The Rising Tide Society whose motto is Community over Competition. The Tuesdays Together groups meet on the second Tuesday of every month to discuss ways to build their business.
