The Community Club

Discussion on: What would you say to yourself at your first community role?

Such a good question! Mine might be a bit different than what you're expecting.

The first ~4 years that I spent building community, I didn't even realize what I was doing. The community building sort of happened accidentally, which led to missteps in building what should have been built. I'd go back and tell myself "you're building a community-first business dummy!" and pointed myself towards resources to learn and be intentional about what I was doing.

I do think that happens at times in the community space, where folks from marketing, support, success, etc sort of fall into community and don't realize it for quite a while.
