Talking Points

  • This recent trip out west – taught me some things about being connected
  • Our own story of feeling like we were “on an island”
  • Shop Owners are disconnected and feel the same way
  • It doesn’t have to be that way
  • Conversations that pointed me to the movie “Cast Away” 
  • We were not created or designed to be alone. We need community. 
  • Chuck Noland (in Cast Away) found a companion in “Wilson”. Who is your tribe?
    • Other Shop Owners
    • Facebook Groups
    • 20 Groups
    • Masterminds
  • What resources do you have? What do you have to give?
    • Coaches
    • Industry groups/associations
    • Industry Events
  • You find what you’re looking for. So, look for connections. Take action. 
  • As we visited shop owner after shop owner we found ourselves having similar conversations about this ‘island’. Now we’ve connected our shop clients to the industry, other shop owners, and resources.
  • Be a giver, a connector, a helper
