Community Changes Everything

Community Changes Everything

Confession, I’ve watched way too many nature shows this week. BBC America has had pretty much every HD docu-series on nature on repeat this week with the holiday. Yesterday captivated by Big Blue Planet I watched the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. It was like Lion King in real life. I was prepared for Pumba to start talking…


There was a moment in the show where they ended up on the African savannah. It was watching the African Proverb playout in real life. “If you want to go fast go alone if you want to go far go together.” There was this lone hyena that almost became Lion Snack because he had ventured off alone and a pride of lions had found him. Somehow the lone hyena got away and sounded the hyena’s version a group text and the entire community of hyenas, also known a Cackle assembled to take on the lions.





What happened next seemed impossible but that one lone bloodied and bruised hyena was able to make it rain crazy hyena mafia on the lions and the create at the top of the food chain ran away with tail tucked. Outnumbered lions were no match for a creature 1/10th of its size because there is strength in community. Community isn’t for everyone but for those that want to survive they need it. That’s why I created The Thing. That’s why I lead a small number of coaching masterminds (soon to be called Herds, Stay tuned….I’ll tell you more later.)


Today the hyena reminded me that I may not be the best at what I do but with strength in numbers I can take down the King of Jungle. What’s most interesting to me is that in every mastermind there are those at the top of the food chain in their progress and then there are some meerkats (who also survive through community.)


If you’re an entrepreneur, creative, or just a square peg in a round hole and need community I’d love to have you in one of my groups. Send me a message. I caution you thought if you think you will sit it out… going alone may be more convenient but in the wild, it will you on the bottom of the food chain.
