Our attachments to each other weave the fabric of community. Community is affinity, identity, and kinship that makes room for ideas, thoughts, and solutions. A community is a social structure that shares personal values, cultural values, business goals, attitudes, or a world view. Online or offline community isn’t built or befriended, it’sconnectedby offering and accepting,. Whether you’re starting a community or looking to grow one, whether it’s business or strictly social, the strategy of community and opportunity will make it easier, more natural, and more meaningful for everyone and keep the community focused on the goal.
The game has changed for authors wanting to reach a best seller status today. Gone are the days of writing great works and selling lots of books. You use to get a book deal and turn over the fruits of your labor to the publisher and they would work their magic.Now, instead like a 70’s era woman, you will go out earn the bacon, fry it up in a pan and serve it happily to your readers- hmmm family.
