Community among creative entrepreneurs and bloggers can be vital to one’s success and sanity. Often embarking on starting your on business or website can be a bit lonely as most of us start out as solopreneurs. Sometimes you need business advice, vent about a difficult client, fist bump about a recent win, or even just figure out how to word an email but it’s not like you have a partner to talk to it about with. Even when you have an epic support system sometimes they just might not get the woes of running a blog or creative business. Enter Facebook groups to save the day!
What I love about Facebook groups
Facebook groups are literally a game changer. Whenever I have a business question, need advice, or just want to talk to my fellow entrepreneurs and bloggers Facebook groups are the first place I turn. So many of them are filled with like-minded helpful people willing to answer questions and offer much needed support.
What keeps these groups awesome is that they are so positive. The moderators do a great job of keeping haters and spammers away. Another thing that separates these groups from many others is they are not filled with self-promotion. That’s a big no-no in these groups. It keeps things helpful and collaborative.
I am a part of many groups but these really standout as the all-stars. I definitely encourage you to join. Most require signing up for their mailing list.
