The PW community is built on the belief that you are NOT meant to do business (or life) alone. But where do you meet and connect with like minded women who will support you and have your back while chasing your big ideas? How do you build a community that really gets you?
Today I am sharing three tips for how to cultivate a badass, supportive group of female friends!
Put yourself in places where those kinds of women hang out, no matter how scary it feels! Newsflash: The people you want to meet and connect with won’t show up on your doorstep! I’ve met these kinds of people in masterminds, virtual events, networking events, social media, set up zoom coffee dates with women I wanted to get to know. There are so many ways, you just have to get creative!
Don’t put people on a pedestal (we’re all people!) Connect with women who are at your same level, doing the kinds of things you do or want to be doing and know that you’ll all rise together.
Do the internal work! Female friendship can be a trigger for jealousy/comparison/envy etc. Know that the kind of women you want to hang out with are not those kinds of people, so you can’t show up that way either.
I promise you, there are a whole lot of women out there who really want to connect and cultivate deep and lasting relationships just like you do!
What is one thing you are going to do this month to start seeking new friendships?!
