20. The Power of Community

Have you ever gotten stuck in a ditch and needed help out?

Even if you’ve never been stuck in a literal ditch, you’ve most likely been in a life situation where you needed help.  However, when the time comes, asking for that help isn’t always what we decide to do.  It’s often easier to think we need to pull ourselves out of the trenches before connecting with others. But what if it’s in the trenches we need others the most?

As Dale and Brian pressed on in the business, they often felt they were on an island. Of course, they had each other, but they knew there were resources they weren’t yet utilizing. 

To continue learning and improving, they began to push for something that perplexed others in the industry: a conference where other business owners from Astrolawn could connect and bounce ideas off of each other.

When their idea became a reality, they made the trek to Las Vegas.  They were excited to share information and bounce ideas off of others in the industry. While others might view community as competition, Dale and Brian viewed it as a massive asset–and the encouragement they needed to propel their business forward. 

We were not designed to do this life alone. 

Whether it’s family, co-workers, or friends, there is power in community. Are you utilizing it, or is pride keeping you stuck?
