Thriving with Too Many Ideas

4/7/2024
Welcome back to the Community Strategy Podcast! I'm thrilled you are here and excited to jump into this new episode! Since opening Community Builders with Purpose, I've been reminded that we can learn much from our peers. I've been looking for ways to support my clients and encourage them to move faster by focusing on a few or, better yet, one option at a time. I was looking for speakers to join the community when Windy Lawson shared her talk about "Thriving with TMI” (Too Many Ideas). Windy joins the Community Builders with Purpose in a pre-recorded presentation to community members. Since 2017, Windy has been on a journey to help female microbusiness owners in the start-up phase or those who've recently turned a part-time side hustle into a full-time gig. You are in the right place if you are tired of chasing shiny objects that the gurus told you are the holy grail of success. "Where do you seem to get your best ideas?" Windy asks at the beginning of this session. She works with women who are creating a business independently. In that space, she said that getting ideas or deciding on an idea "gets a bad rap." We say things like we are "chasing squirrels" or "shiny object syndrome," which is why the idea seems to get the brunt of the criticism—Windy points out that ideas are powerful and are what push us forward.

The CSP Season Three Launchs on International Women's Day

3/10/2024
Welcome back to The Community Strategy Podcast: Season Three! I'm thrilled you have joined us; I can't wait to meet you inside Community Builders with Purpose! This season, you'll hear recordings of our live events inside this new community. For the first episode of the season, I wanted to share a recording of a live event I hosted with women to celebrate International Women's Day! It is a global celebration observed annually on March 8 to recognize and honor the achievements and contributions of women throughout history. We forge a better world by inspiring others to understand and value women's inclusion. When women are inspired to be included, they feel a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment. So, collectively, let's forge a more inclusive world for women. Many individuals participate in events and initiatives to mark the day, including conferences, panel discussions, workshops, and awareness campaigns. International Women's Day is a time for celebration and an opportunity to reflect on the progress made and the work that still needs to be done to achieve gender equality worldwide.

Season 2 Preview Episode: Why you should hire a community consultant

7/27/2023
A new season of the Community Strategy Podcast is coming this Sunday, July 30th, and I’m kicking it off with a preview of a recent interview with the Community Leaders Institute. Before I dive into that episode, Let me share some of this backstory with you first. Back in 2021, a year after I launched a consulting business, I was looking for a community for consultants and couldn’t find one, so I created one. After asking on LinkedIn if anyone else does community consulting, I found a few people who raised their hands. I said they wanted to meet monthly and chat about what they are doing in their businesses. Consultants usually see each other as competitors, but the group we started, now called The Community Consultants Collective, is a fantastic group of people. Now we are growing to more than 70+ members! This episode will share excerpts of an interview with Brad Weaber, who leads a discussion about why to hire a community consultant with the CCC board members Todd Nilson, Carolyn Zick, Mathijs Vleeming, John Summers, and Deb Schell. A few questions you could ask include: Founded in September of 2021, the Community Consultants Collective is a watering hole for community professionals transitioning to freelance and consulting work to get support, training, and the tools to grow their expertise. Join for free, connect with your peers, and elevate your career. The Community Strategy Podcast Season 2 starts Sunday, July 30th, with new episodes allowing you to learn about the Creator to Community Builder book, soon to be published in the fall of 2023.
