3 Ways To Find Your Tribe As A Creative Entrepreneur
Updated: Aug 1, 2022
Every creative entrepreneur faces it at some stage. They reach a tipping point and say, “I need to find my tribe.” They might look in the obvious places — online forums, Facebook groups — but they won't find their tribe there. This is because their tribe isn't an online thing. Your tribe is a group of people you connect with on a personal level, who enjoy what you offer to the world and want to build something special together. They’re searching for you just as much as you’re searching for them too.
Or maybe you do have a lot of friends and acquaintances but don’t feel like you have a tribe. Regardless of which one you relate with the most, here are some steps to finding your tribe as a creative entrepreneur.
Decide what you want from a tribe.
Do you want people who are similar to you in business or people who are different? Maybe both? What do they need to be able to do for you?
Find out if there is already a group of people doing what you want to do.
If there isn't, consider starting one yourself!
Look at your current network and see where the gaps are between what they have and what they need (i.e., what they don't have that you could offer).
Where can you help them fill those gaps? How can they help fill yours?
Finding your tribe is all about developing creative relationships and exposing yourself to new experiences. Take the opportunities life offers you and be open to building innovative relationships with people. Be patient with yourself and don't rush the process. There's no right way to find your tribe, just be aware of what makes you feel inspired and continue following those intuitive impulses towards positive change. And remember, sometimes the best help is offered by those who have trodden a similar path in the past.
