It’s said: We are the average of the 5 people who we spend the most time with. The question I get asked so often is “How do I find these people!?! There is no one in my life that has these interests or is supportive of my goals.” In my post Be Your Best Boss Ever, I pointed out that one amazing thing about a great job is a supportive and inspiring group of coworkers. I encouraged you to go find that group for yourself in places that matter to you: a religious group, volunteer, hobby, or interests.
If you read this blog frequently, I’ll assume you want to be awesome with your money so you can be awesome with your whole life.
There are lots of ways to find your tribe! And I’ve done most of them: mentors, conferences, retreats, volunteering, small groups, meet ups, online friendships, masterminds, etc.
But lets start small! Something that is simples, easy and FREE! Facebook groups!
There are TONS of amazing Facebook groups out there filled with people who are chasing down the exact same things you are! If you join the right ones it will fill your Facebook feed with lots of helpful and encouraging conversations, ideas, and inspiration. Plus they are made up of real people! People you can get to know.
I know my Facebook experience became much more enjoyable after I joined a dozen awesome groups.
How do you find such groups? Glad you asked!
