On Wednesday nights, I break my #earlytobedearlytoshred routine and take the time to dive into accumulated Pocket bookmarks, a folder of auto-archived newsletters like those from people like: James
, Kristel & Celine
The HR theme on James’
caught my attention and struck a chord with a recent conversation topic I’ve been having leading up to and since our Our two year party
on Friday: you have to put the time in.
Community sounds like something that takes time right? Being a startup event, (even one focused on SaaS B2B sales) I think its often easy for people to realize growth hacking, savvy tips and proven tricks can always move the needle rapidly. It takes time.
From the weekly early rides
I do to the bi-monthly speaker series
I co-organize to the subscribers of this newsletter to the inbound leads we field daily at our company
. It took years to build those community connections. You have to pay it forward, reciprocate and, often, just wait.
Don’t forget that you not only have to put the time in but you should want to as well.
As always, thanks for reading!
