Community Is The Answer

Find your people, support, and funding.

Building Together

As a creative entrepreneur or small business owner, finding your community is a critical factor in your success. Our community at Being Boss is a prime example of why community is so important – the benefits are endless! From the power of networking and access to resources like mentorship and training to the inspiration and feedback you’ll receive, community is a recipe for growth and acceleration.

But the benefits of community don’t end there. Community funding is a game-changer for entrepreneurs, as it provides a way to develop new revenue streams and achieve success. Crowdfunding has become a popular method for small businesses to secure funding. Plus, platforms like Substack, Paetron, and Podia are leading the way in community-funded content, from newsletters and podcasts to courses. The support of your community can be the key to unlocking the full potential of your business and bringing your creative vision to life.
