The Community Tree is a new group meeting at my studio, born from a need to have a solid support network while working for myself, and largely by myself. The idea was dreamt up between two good friends and myself just before Christmas 2018 as we were discussing how hard it can be as an introvert to stay motivated and focused when you work from home and find attending normal networking and support groups a tough thing to do for many reasons.
We’re a small group of compassionate people, determined to improve our lives through running our own businesses. We aim to support each other to learn and grow through regular meet ups, online groups and offline networking with other heart based people. Our language and methods are creative, balanced between heart and head, and realistic to our goals.
I was happy with how the group had formed and opened up a Facebook group a couple of months ago to welcome and encourage other like minded people to join us online.
In person get-togethers are also now available here at my studio on every second Wednesday afternoon. Everyone is welcome to join us on any afternoon whenever your schedule allows so there’s no pressure to be here every fortnight. It’s free to join us, though if you’d like to make a donation towards the provided refreshments, you are more than welcome to do so. The format is designed to be free flowing – addressing whatever needs to be addressed for the members that day and skill sharing is more than welcome too. All the dates are available here.
As an extra help to those who come along, I also stock some products in my shop from each of our regular members so that Soul Studio customers can browse for real rather than just online. You can meet our Community Tree regulars here.
