Finding Your Perfect Support Community

Friday, October 18th, 2013

It can be challenging to manage the twists and turns life tosses in our path. To make it easier, surround yourself with others who can support you. This is often family and friends although it doesn’t have to be exclusive to them.

Most folks have 3 main groups of people in their circle of influence: colleagues from work; family and friends; and those they know through hobbies and recreational activities. The 3rd group has the most potential for immediate expansion and the people you add to this group will be able to support you in specific areas. No single person can support you in every area of life so those you meet in self-selected interest groups will provide an excellent exchange of wins and struggles specific to that subject matter, helping you learn from one another. With our online networks, we now have a massive reach to others with similar interests and they only need to be accessible by the world wide web!

As long as you immerse yourself within a community that you want to learn more about, you won’t have to rely on others within your circle of influence that don’t have the expertise you are looking for. You may even find someone through social media who you’d like to work with further or, to mentor you.

I’m so grateful for the amazing folks I’ve met recently in the TLC October Blogging Event, organized by Eve Koivula. I’m learning so much about blogging, about other bloggers’ areas of expertise and, about social media! Where do you go to build your support community?
