Do you build networks or friendships? .
Your vibe attracts your tribe: The Internet has made it possible for me to connect with wonderful people who I consider part of my tribe. I first met Zach Benson on Facebook and I seen the incredible things he has done, travelling around and went on TEDX to share his story. We finally met when we share the same stage as @GaryVee, then we got to hang out during our time in Hong Kong - where we celebrated and ate a delicious Don Perignon champagne breakfast at Carlton Ritz. .
I have been travelling around the world and I have been fortunate to tap into entrepreneurial networks likes @startup Grind, the community has quickly connected with other badass, thanks to @chrisjjoanou, @jfryeofficial and @yourchinaguy. We geeked out about personal branding and how we are building our communities. .
They is a major difference between friendships, networks, even community is distinct.
Friendships is more of a relationship with a person, one where I can chill out with on their lounge room and be super real. Typically it's a person I can witness their life journey and celebrations. .
A network is like what I have on Facebook. It's a group or system of interconnected people. I have a person described his network like this: it's 20% DJs, 20% marketing, 20% school and childhood friends. 20% horse riders, 20% travellers. Because of my epic network, I can easily call for help when I travel to different cities, I am thankful that i have a diverse network that believes what I do.
Community is another level up, it's a network of people who have similar value systems. This is the one I continually cultivable as I believe in two things: to connect, and to create. I connect awesome people with awesomeness and let the magic happen. The fried chicken parties is an example of what I do to cultivate my community. .
Out of the three? Which one do you cultivate the most and why? .
