Finding your tribe can be vital to your success as an entrepreneur or influencer. It can be the thing that elevates you from working hard by yourself to working hard with other creatives and professionals in higher places. Your tribe will serve as your sounding board, support system, and beta testers for all things work and life. Within the Blogalicious network, these are things that we experience on a regular basis. Though we can speak freely about the benefits of having (multiple) tribes, there are many people without a tribe of their own.
Our conference this year, as you know, will focus on this topic and hopefully be paramount in your tribe building journey. We’ve put hundreds of hours into cultivating a space for you to do this and more. What’s great about our network is they believe the same manifesto – that tribes are important to almost every aspect of our lives.
In this post, we’re sharing heartfelt messages from movers and shakers within our community on why tribes are important. Write down your favorite messages and share them with us on social media.
7 heartfelt messages on why tribes are important
- Tribe= A group with a shared sense of purpose that celebrates each other’s successes, supports each other’s dreams and encourages each other during challenging times. The tribe is non-judgemental and provides a safe space to be vulnerable and to grow. – Dr. Jamie Hardy
- Tribes are the lifeblood of our lives, whether connected by blood or common interest, we need our tribes to survive and most importantly, to thrive. Without my connections of other women and my family and friends, I would wither. Tribes give us the fortitude to deal with the hard edges of life. – Michelle Talbert
- In order to #TribeUp and elevate to the next level within our business, brand, and blog, it takes a #Tribe. We are born into the world, alone, but it takes a #Tribe of support, collaboration, and a whole lot of positive energy, in order for us to authentically be our best “selves”. Having sisterpreneurs in blogging and business who support our goals and mission, is what we all need to be successful! – Patrice Tartt
- There’s a popular Jamaican proverb that says “One han cyaa clap” (One hand can’t clap). Which means You need to work with others to achieve a common goal, you can’t do it alone. Growth and success does not happen in isolation – other people are part of our growth and success. Being part of a tribe, especially with my fellow Caribbean Content Creators means that we recognize that together we can build a stronger community, support system so that we can make a greater impact on the niched audience we serve. – Kerry & Reid Brown
- Long ago, women would go to the riverbed and wash and dry clothes on the rocks. The women who joined her, were her confidants, her tribe. The same is true today – only we meet up via text, via social media or better yet, IRL. – Danica Kombol
- Tribes are necessary like eating. Tribes are the fuel that pushes the human race forward. Where we live, our work and our hobbies are defined by our tribes that represent our activities and attitudes. Our value is based on the value we bring to others in the tribe, or by how large a tribe we can create. – Jay Jackson
- I personally wouldn’t be anywhere with out my tribe. Tribes cheer you on on the good days and support you when the world feels like it’s crashing down around you. – Andrea Corson
