Building a supportive and thriving community for you and your small business with Natalie Franke. 

My friend, you and I both know that entrepreneurship can get pretty lonely at times. But, lucky for us, having a community can be as small as two people who connect and support each other. And, let's face it, the pandemic taught us all about the importance of connection, both online and in-person. 

Being a part of a community is so much more important for small business owners than you might think! Community helps us keep going even when things get tough and allows us the opportunity to learn from an array of wonderful people. Plus, science has literally shown that we thrive the most when we have supportive people around us!

That's why I'm excited to introduce you to my guest today, Natalie Franke. She's a community-building mastermind and the Head of Community at Flodesk. Natalie has helped thousands of small business owners cultivate communities, and today, she's here to share her expertise with you. 

But, we acknowledge that stepping into a community can be a bit intimidating, which is why we also chat about Natalie's fabulous book, Gutsy. It's your guidebook to uncovering the unapologetic courage within you and building up the confidence to make your unique impact on this world. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • 10:11: Why community is an entrepreneur's secret to success 
  • 16:05: The inspiring story behind Rising Tide Society 
  • 22:38: Tips for tapping into a community to fuel your small business and your emotional wellbeing
  • 28:37: The first steps for getting involved in a community 
  • 32:17: How to conquer any anxiety or negativity around online communities 
  • 41:27: Advice on taking a leap toward your dreams, shaking off fear, and making the change you desire 

Listen in because a big, beautiful community is out there just waiting for you to find them. And I'm here to cheer you on every step of the way!
