In this episode we discuss:
6:03 The difference between being a Mighty Network Hosts or Mighty Network Manager, and how these roles are actionable and visionary. It is great to have a vision about the community and how to bring people in to participate, but when people start interacting - it is a decision about what the community is becoming and it’s more about building it together or noticing when a community is starting to build and expand on its own.
16:21 The importance of self-care as an entrepreneur, making it easier for finding calm. The pandemic brought to light the really deep importance of self-care. Challenges as an entrepreneur and how to improve your business by improving your life with a focus on improving sleep, nutrition, and exercise.
20:52 REWIRE Framework - Reflect, Experiment, Write, Investigate, Revise, Expand with six steps to implement the framework that is immediately actionable and customizable.
25:48 Community management time commitments, for entrepreneurs to decide if hosting a Mighty Network, is or isn’t for them. Content matters in a community and it is important to create a community that serves and not pitches to members.
34:10 Use the simplest tool in your toolbox, stop complicating things to keep it easy to reach goals faster. Letting go of all of the things you think you need and start doing things.
