Secret to Biz Success is On-Line Community

Originally uploaded by NaPix — Hmong Soul

Fundamentally, community to me means hanging out with people who like me and I like them. Naturally, you know what one another does for a living and, if appropriate, refer and suggest and help out each other.

Thanks to the internet we have offline, as well as access to online global community. I agree with Glen Stansberry, cofounder of LifeRemix blog network, that the secret to being a successful entrepreneur is: understanding you need community – yes, and I would take it a step further and say that these days we NEED on-line community. Following is a summary of his recent post on awake@thewheel.

You need help from other people. People who will challenge you and lend you a hand when needed. People who will expand your horizons with their expertise or particular walks of life. Thanks to this thing called The Internet, you can find people and groups to help you in almost any field and variety.

Forums, Google groups, open source projects… there are literally limitless options for finding a community.

Community helps us fill in those little cracks in our life that we can’t fill ourselves.

I dare you to find a successful person that did it “all on their own”. Everyone (yes, even Steve Jobs) has had people in their lives that bring the best out of them, both professionally and personally. Finding and surrounding yourself with these people is going to be critical to your success.

Community also gives us a chance to give

There’s nothing better than receiving and giving. It’s important to note that asking for help is just as important as giving. Oftentimes people feel like they’re being a burden by asking for help. But other people need a way to give back their talents and resources too.

So if you really want to skyrocket your career, find a community to be a part of.

If you can’t find one, then start one within your niche. (All you have to do is ask.) There’s always something you can provide. If anything, you can be encouraging and supportive. (Sometimes the thing a community needs most is more cheerleaders.) The important thing is to just get involved. No man (or woman) is an island.
