#54 The Value of Community and Tribes for Makers

Failures happen. Our community gets us through it.

When you realize that failure is an integral part of moving forward and discover how much your community picks you up during that time, that’s when you’ll see the tides turn. Your community and your tribe will be the driving force to get you to where you’re headed no matter how many detours you take along the way.

Today’s Guest

I’m joined this week by one of the most passionate women I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking with, Michele, of 144 Stitches. She says “I’ve learned that failures happen. I fail more than I succeed. But as long as I fail forward and pick myself up and keep forward motion after any failure, then I know it’s gonna be okay.” Michele gives us some inspirational insight in the value of finding your tribe and how her community has helped her through these failing forward moments in her life.
