Growing a blog or building a business can be challenging. That is something you pour your heart and soul into. You are sharing your knowledge about a subject or creating a product, just hoping that it will connect with someone out there in cyber space.
You may or may not be receiving support at home.
I have been told that my job as an interior designer isn’t a “real job” so the fact that I write a design blog is even worse in the eyes of some people in my family.
Thankfully, my husband is extremely supportive.
But not everyone has someone cheering them on.
A COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT
Running a creative business is hard and being an entrepreneur can be very lonely.
The long hours.
The endless promoting.
The constant webinars, training videos, and technology updates.
FTC guidelines to follow.
We have to do it all. Not to mention the bookkeeping and product or topic curation.
That’s why I created my own support network. My group, Creative Bloggers & Makers, is a private Facebook group for creative entrepreneurs who blog or produce a product.
It’s so important to find supportive people to support you in your journey. They know what it’s like and they want to see you succeed.
We all have different strengths and we bring those to the table. Some people are better at SEO or website building. Others are better at understanding click funnels or opt-ins. Some really understand how to build their email list and others don’t even know where to start.
If you belong to a community of people who all have common goals, you can get the help you need!
In the group there are daily mutual help threads that I post Monday through Saturday. Some focus on blog sharing, others focus on social media, and there is even a Q&A thread.
I also post training videos, social media updates, helpful articles, and more!
At any time you can pop into the group and post a question or ask for feedback. You can even rant about your unsupportive family member or crazy customer. Whatever you need to succeed - I want to provide it for you!
I don’t make any money from this group and I’m not trying to sell you on anything. I genuinely want to help you grow your blog or creative business.
Because I went through years of not having any support before I married my husband. I spent thousands of hours watching webinars and teaching myself all of the various aspects of blogging and promoting my creative business. I have done all of the work and it has taken years! I don’t want you to go through all of that. Benefit from my experience and cut those headaches out.
You might even make some new friends along the way.
MAKING REAL CONNECTIONS
Connecting with fellow creativepreneurs is absolutely necessary to growing your business or blog. You’ve heard the expression, “A rising tide lifts all boats”. I firmly believe in that concept. There is room for all of us to succeed and we can all help each other along the way. Community over competition is the motto for The Rising Tide Society (another great group to be a part of). It means that we want to build a community where we can support and encourage each other, refer business to each other, and cheer when one of us hits a milestone. Competition adds stress, drama, and anxiety. Community builds a safe place to receive the support you need to reach your goals.
Through my group I have many connections that have led to guest blogging opportunities, publication opportunities, feed sharing, blog hops, and more! I have made friendships that I cherish with people who I actually want to meet in person one day. It has been a wonderful opportunity to create a place to feel welcome and accepted by other people who know the exact struggles you are going through as an entrepreneur.
READY TO LAUNCH
You have a dream so it’s time to get started on turning that dream into a reality!
There are people in the group who have not even started their blog yet. They haven’t even purchased a domain name yet. What they are doing is taking steps towards that goal by participating in a group that is imparting knowledge. They’ve taken the first step and so should you.
No matter where you are in your journey, this group can help you.
It doesn’t cost you anything to join so what are you waiting for?
It’s time to launch!
