I found this to be very valuable in my life especially as I made the transition from employee to entrepreneur and business owner, and that is to surround yourself with like minded people and people who support you in what you do.


Sometimes your friends and family might not think that something that you’re doing is a good idea, like if you were to join a network marketing company, or maybe change jobs, or do something that they believe is the wrong thing to do. That’s just their fear talking. They just don’t understand. They want to support you, but they also don’t want you to fail or get hurt. Sometimes, that’s not the best thing that they can do for you.


So, I found that to surround myself with others in the industry, people who were doing the same thing I was doing really helped me out. It gave me energy, and helped to take away some of my fears because I knew people who could do it, and help me do it.


To surround yourself with like minded people, you could join facebook groups, or look into Meetup groups where you can physically join groups and talk to people. One of my favorite things is to go to live events and seminars. I try to get to seminars and trainings at least a couple times a year. It’s fun and fulfilling to be able to be around people who are into the same things you are, who think like you, are there to support you, help you, be happy for you, and teach you. It’s such a high energy place when you’re at a seminar. You can meet new people, grow your network, and it opens your eyes to new and better opportunities.


What do you think?     

How do you connect with like minded people?

    You are the five people you surround yourself with!

    That’s so true!

    That is right on Jodene! The people you surround yourself with is like the water you swim in, if you where a fish. 😀
    I have very dear friends with whom I never talk about my business, it’s like the wrong water for that conversation. Doesn’t mean they aren’t wonderful to have in my life. I just choose my conversations.

      That’s a great tip…chose your conversation. I love the analogy of fish in water. One shouldn’t need to cut off ties with people, but it is wise to learn who you can talk to about what. It’s hard sometimes to talk business with family or certain friends, and that’s one of the reasons I love seminars and hanging out with people there.
      Than you Stella.

  4. Yes like Mike said You are the sum of the 5 people you are around the most! My mother would always tell me “show me your friends and I will tell you what you are like” Powerful stuff and so important when diving into the business world! Thanks Jodene

      It is indeed a very important rule to live by. It sounds like your mother is a smart woman! Think of how our lives would be if we didn’t know this nugget!
      Thanks Wendy!

      Connecting with people at the live events is super important! It’s good to remember to get over the fear. I still have a little shyness to get over, but it helps to remember that we’re all there for the same event, (not necessarily reasons). I look forward to seeing you at the next 1! 🙂
