None of us are ‘self-made’. None of us are an island to ourselves. We are all enabled by others. Who are your enablers?

Not alone, Not crazy
Sometimes knowing you are not alone and not crazy might just be what you need to take the next step. And the next one. And the next one.
Who do you hang out with?
One of the most powerful (and usually free) actions available to us, is to consider who we hang out with. And we can convene the space to find the others.
Who’s it for?
Product launches are easy. There is a formula to follow. Building and sustaining a community is hard work. So perhaps the place to start is ‘who’s it for?’
Individual and Communal
Consent often is very individualistic. But what is individual and what is communal? Tricky lines to define.
Communities have ‘rules’. They are bounded sets. We can choose to learn from different communities rather than commenting, comparing, and competing.
Most of us want to be part of a community that looks out for each other. That is generous. But we wait for someone else to take the first step.
Connection & Communication
Isolation and social distancing are hard asks of people. However, there are many “small” ways to help those affected stay connected with they love.
What you can do
Be human. Self isolating and social distancing may be the right thing to do. But we don’t need to be cut off. Community is needed more than ever.
