Best piece of business advice I have ever received!
So what does it really mean? And who is your tribe?
If you are a business owner, it means the people who love your products and/or services and they keep coming back for more! If you are an entrepreneur, same thing! Who absolutely LOVES your product or service? Who writes about you on FaceBook? Who sings your glory to people in person? That’s your tribe!
“If you have a talent, use it in every which way possible.
Don’t hoard it. Don’t dole it out like a miser.
Spend it lavishly like a millionaire intent on going broke!”
How do you find them?
That’s the tricky part. You have to see who’s buying your products and/or services? Who is liking your social media? Who is following you on your social media (and btw, everyone starts at one, remember that)? Who sends you messages and e-mails? Who are the people you talk to in real life about your business, and who always wants to hear more? Who comments on your posts? Who comes to you for advice? Who gives you authentic compliments?
WHAT MAKES PEOPLE COME BACK TO YOU? Think about it?
That’s how you grow your tribe.
It’s like networking, only on a much larger scale. It’s about making connections.
You get the idea. And it takes work, a lot of it!
Here is a passage I’d like to share from Jay Abraham on entrepreneurs:
“They have passion, purpose – a keen sense of possibility.
They are anything but ambivalent.
They are anything but apathetic. True entrepreneurs love change.
They live for the opportunity to flex their cerebral, creative juices!”
It’s taken me a while to find my tribe(s), and I still work at it daily. I find on different social media sites, I have different tribes. I listen to what they want, and I gladly share with them!
You do the work you love, and the right people will find you, and if you give them what they want, they will come back for more. As long as you are Genuine and Unique and put out your best work, your people will find you, they always do!
And lastly, I leave you with this:
“Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable,
but rather, what is impossible. And by visualizing the
impossible, they begin to see it as possible!”
