3 Myths of Tribe and Why It Matters

blog Nov 17, 2020

Writing a book is NOT easy. I am sure there are some authors who write books with a clear concept in mind and it never changes. In my case, I started with an outline, and then the book, through my life experiences, began to write itself.  Here are some of my findings.

What is tribe?

You see, when I first started writing Assemble the Tribe, I thought I was writing a book about how to create a connected thriving strong female group. However, through my experiences and the stories of others, I learned that the process of creating a healthy tribe is NOTHING like I imagined or had experienced.

Please share the blog, comment on the ideas and concepts you love, and let me know what you would like to know more about. This way we can co-create and grow together.

No deep family meaning there, my mom said it sounded nice...Leah Julie Michelle and I agree.
