I stumbled upon The Community Club whilst looking for community organisations/support groups online ๐Ÿ˜ I'm Community Manager at Virgin Media in the UK. I stumbled into community from the support world and have done all the jobs whilst getting to this point.

My favourite part about community building - getting the change to share opportunities with the community on the back of the engagement/participation in the group. When community works well it enables so many things in my book.

Fun facts - I'm a fluent Welsh speaker; I've been working on writing and recording an album during lockdown

Hey folks -
I run a non-profit community of business leaders (+1500 members) - we do not charge for our services as we strongly feel that everyone should have access to support along the lifecycle of their business (we want to democratize access to knowledge, support and financial aid to SMEs). Most of our members are micro-businesses and early-stage startups.

Member 'benefits' or services are:
๐ŸŽ‰ Slack community
๐Ÿ“ฐ Substack newsletter
๐ŸŽ Weekly events covering networking (casual and 'formal' on Icebreaker), sales forums, coaching circles, masterclasses, holistic health sessions - all events are hosted by us but members provide their services for free also to promote their business (ie lead with value)
๐Ÿ“ฝ Recorded trainings and events on our (unlisted) YouTube channel
๐Ÿคนโ€โ™€๏ธ Focus groups for early-stage startups, Beta user groups for MVP-stage startups and pitching sessions for later stage

We are registered as a non-profit but have not yet secured funding or sponsorship (we provide all of the above for free). Looking forward to learning from you all here and hopefully building this community into a sustainable business model!

โœจHello!โœจ

I think I reached a pivotal moment in my life. Let me explain:
Last month, I was your regular freshly graduated undergrad - stomping around job boards, slurping up "career guru" advice on how to land your first job, madly implementing advice from those "Do this, not that" blogs. By chance someone I really admired in the creative industry was hiring for a CM position, and without much thought (or understanding what exactly a CM is) I applied - and miraculously got an interview. Post interview I went down the rabbit hole trying to figure out how to work the platform mentioned and found Community Club. I'm hooked.

So, hi again๐Ÿ‘‹- I'm Katie an aspiring community manager who is fascinated with how the digital space has transformed the way we gather and how it can be used to amplify the good we can do in this world.

Right now my challenge is learning how to translate my community building skillsets from observing and working with incredible connectors and gatherers in offline settings to the online space and, more importantly, figure out what exactly needs to be done to help people out.

Oh yeah, and finding a job. There's that to!

============
Currently, I'm reading The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker and so far it is a wonderful collection of types of gatherings and how to design those spaces. (recommending as relevant food for thought!)

Hey everyone!

I'm excited to be here and learn from some you community pros how to build a thriving community :=)

I've been running a self-education blog called DIY Genius since 2011 and over the years I've built a big email list, made quite a few online courses and group coaching programs but I've never succeed at truly building a community with a sense of belonging and camaraderie that lasts.

So, that's my mission in 2022. I'm currently working on building an online accountability community for highly-distractible remote workers (like me).

A little about me, I'm Canadian and I split my time between Toronto/Vancouver most of the year. I also like to get some sun and warmth in the winter so I usually spend a few months working remotely somewhere in the tropics (Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia and Thailand are my favourite spots so far).

I'm really passionate about remote work, getting in flow, nature connection, the creator economy and watching thought-provoking documentaries (let me know if you have any recommendations!).

Daria Pichugina

Hi, everyone! My name is Daria. I'm originally from Siberia, Russia but currently based in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Community building has been my passion since my childhood. I started gathering people together and uniting them by mutual interests when I was 6 years old (topics were very diverse. Selling stuff, building small huts and kiosks, dancing, etc.)

This irresistible enthusiasm led me to organize book clubs, mastermind groups, and English conversational club en-joy-club.ru/en that brings people from all over the world to practice English speaking skills in a safe and friendly environment.

However, now I'm poised to start a new community of people who are willing to improve their lives, achieve personal and professional (and, frankly, ANY) goals, and take action every day with people who do the same. It's sort of a mastermind group but on a bigger scale.

I made up my mind to approach it professionally and that's how I found Tim, his awesome manual, and this group.

Reading your introductions, I see that I'm just a beginner. But I'm extremely glad to be surrounded by such interesting people like you, guys. Thank you and let's stay in touch!

๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Hey Community Club! My name is Emily and I'm the Head of Community Programs at Patreon.

Prior to working at Patreon, I had a long career at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and also worked as a consultant. My remaining client is really a passion project. It's a fledgeling Bay Area artist residency program called The Space Program, San Francisco.

My favorite part of community building is that hit of joy you get when you know you've made a different in people's lives through an introduction, a resource, or an experience. Today I heard from a community member who said: "I'm just gently surprised that [my club] proved to be such a bonding experience - I went in with heart both open and also cynically-half-closed, and I left with heart wide open and grateful."

Hello everyone ๐Ÿ‘‹

I've just found out about this place, and I am excited to learn!

I believe there is only one relationship that we will always be in: the relationship with ourselves. Improving that relationship is the most effective way of improving your life.

I host a podcast about this, and I have many other plans.
More information here: relatingtoself.com/

I strongly believe that creating, nurturing and fostering a beautiful and warm community โค๏ธ is the next most important step for me. And...

I have no idea how to do that ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜…

So I'm here to learn.

Other parts of me that are meaningful to some, perhaps:

I'm an online entrepreneur in the crafting niche. โœ‚๏ธ
I had a career as a composer and singer for two decades before that. ๐ŸŽถ
I'm a member of sandbox.is/

So, where do I start? ๐Ÿ’ช
