Why you need a tribe

· tribe,woman boss,coaching

It's 10.30am and I'm waiting to Skype, friend and business woman of Story Explorers, Claire Jackson. I've known Claire for many years. We started our businesses at about the same time, so she really understands the struggles of being a entrepreneur, business woman and growing our own businesses. The road up until now hasn't always been rosy, to be honest it's been lonely. I have wonderful people in my life who support everything I do, but the struggles in a workplace are very different than working for yourself.

 

I'd forgotten Claire was there. I'd forgotten a lot of things and have been going it solo, not wanting to annoy friends with, What do you think of this? It was a stupid thing to forget, but it's hard to coach yourself. There are moments when I ask myself, 'what would you say to a client', but it's so much easier to do for someone else.

It has only been the last couple of months that I realised how much I was missing the feedback and friendship of other women, but not just anyone. Someone who understands my brand and what I am trying to achieve and understands the importance of getting feedback. Claire isn't the only woman I have in my life who runs her own business, but again I thought I could go it alone, but that was stupid, I can't.

Finding your tribe isn't just about finding friends. It's about finding women (and men), who won't say your idea is stupid, or it won't work, but understand the question means thinking about your brand, what you're trying to do and will give you their thoughts and feedback based on that. They are the people who you can say, will you come to a networking event with me and won't stand stuck in a corner waiting for you. Your tribe are the people who understand you, your brand and the ones that you can brainstorm ideas with and visa versa. And when brainstorming ideas with someone else, you'll probably have more, even better ideas. You can't go it alone. Humans require interaction, community, a tribe. They may also be those who can share the a cheeky cocktail at midday. Remember this new found life doesn't have to be 9 -5.

 

Look around, you'll find that your tribe is already there.
