Community & Accountability: Why Staying Social Fosters Success (FS324)

What are the ways that we entrepreneurs really want to be remembered? Why is it that we do the kind of work we do and reach out to the people around us? What is the ultimate role of our community and the connections we make?

Here at Fizzle, we cannot stress the importance of community and communication enough.

For us, it is the building block and the end goal of almost everything we do. We both do things in order to serve and create a community but we also are able to do those things because of the connections we make in the world.

In this episode, we are contemplating the place of community and connection in our more general roadmap for entrepreneurs. We are talking about the effect that friends can have on our personal success and the subtle and transformational role of the people around us over time.

We also talk about finding this tribe and swimming in your own lane as much as you need to. Becoming part of a community of people always requires some amount of vulnerability and exposure and sharing who you are is one of the main ways we are able to connect with others, this is what we believe in!

For all this and more, join us here at Fizzle!
