A community is a group of people working together for a common goal. All of us are involved in different communities each day. You have community where you work. If you work for yourself, you may have clients or accountability partners for your community. You have community when you attend a church, a Sunday school class, or small study group. You have community in your own family and in your neighborhood or apartment complex. Some communities help each other grow to be better at their passions or gifts. Some communities help you with a particular area in your life.
I am so blessed to be a part of the National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs community! This group has challenged me to do things I never thought I could do. They have supported me on the journey to become a writer and speaker. They have rallied around and prayed for me during dark moments in my life. They are my sisters in Christ, my friends, my co-workers, my business coaches, and my support group. I joined one year ago this month, and they helped develop my dreams into realities!
This past year, I completed my first Bible study, self-published the study, created a membership program called My Organized Life, and stepped out to schedule speaking engagements. I have been praying and talking about doing all of these for the past three years. NACWE gave me the ideas, tools, and support to bring into reality what God has called me to do! If I did not know how to do something or needed to find a virtual assistant, a graphic designer, or someone to help me with social media, all I had to do was ask NACWE. Either someone knew the right person, or the right person spoke up and could help me!
I can’t imagine working without my NACWE Community. They gave me the encouragement to be bold and try different things! Come join our community to take your business or ministry to the next level.
