Here's what people have to say:

"I cannot even begin to articulate what happens when you surround yourself with like-minded folks - who are looking to make an impact in the world. It is life-changing. Finding a peer group of folks who get it - and who are pushing themselves to new heights - helps you to level up and raise the bar." - Sean O'Connor

"Screens can, in fact, unite people. Joining a supportive community can serve as the spark needed to begin a project or the kindling necessary to keep going, as one encouraging word can be the difference between a hazy idea and finished work." - Michelle Welsch

Having a community behind you gets you over the fear of perfection. You learn to ship imperfect work, get feedback, polish, and then do it all over again. Developing a practice of shipping allows you to build the fundamental self-trust inside of you that confidence, resilience, and success is based on." - Rick Kitagawa



Mandell Conway"Before a community of practice, I couldn't tell you the last time I shipped any work. Now, I can tell you I shipped work today, yesterday, and the day before that. I am a new person. I am a shipper. Community helps you get there. It helps you face your fears. It helps you grow." - Mandell Conway




"A community of practice changed my work because I felt that I had a new ruler to measure my work against. I wasn't just writing for me, this work had to resonate with people I respected, so I saw more clearly where it was weak, or where I was being lazy. My relationships improved because we were all in the same boat together! I wanted to support others, and in turn, others wanted to support me." - Conor McCarthy



Susan Myhr Fritz"Building a habit you actually want to do is easier and more fruitful in community. Practicing in community is also an ego-booster. Suddenly one finds herself producing work rather than thinking about producing work; creativity becomes a part of daily life." - Susan Fritz



He Built A $2 Million Business Around His Passion For Home Movie Theaters. Now He's Helping Entrepreneurs With Disabilities Reach New Heights."The major thing I noticed is that I got out of my own bubble.  My growth mindset brought me into a community of practice, and from there my work expanded, I met amazing people, and I found new opportunities to explore." - Gustavo Serafini

The concept of community didn't exist as much when I started my podcast in 2014, it would have made a big difference - to not feel alone, to avoid burnout, to connect with other like-minded people and even people with the skills you need to do better work." - Fei Wu
