Since becoming location independent, there are two things I’m pretty much ALWAYS droning on about because, without them, I would have quite literally shriveled up into the fetal position before ugly-crying all the way back to my soul-deadening 9-5 job…
COMMUNITY and NETWORKING.
Luckily, Facebook groups came to my rescue to offer up both of these sweet little miracles.
Seriously guys, if you’re not using Facebook groups to meet fellow entrepreneurs, freelancers, bloggers, and nomads, you’re missing out.
Having a community in real life is obviously ideal, but chances are, many of the people closest to you just won’t get what you’re trying to accomplish and won’t be able to offer you any practical advice.
And while in-person networking is fabulous and you should absolutely make time for it (and invest in it by attending conferences and the like), it’s also easier than ever to network with your peers online.
Facebook groups have made online networking an absolute dream, and within these little communities, you’ll find people just like you–people with big dreams, unconventional ways of living, and a desire to blaze their own unique trail in life.
