I built the Indie Worldwide community from a monthly zoom call to an online accelerator with over 2,000 founders. Here’s what I’ve learned along the way.
Give your community a flag to wave
What do members of your community believe that most people don't? If your community was embodied as a single person, what would they be like? What's their personality? How would they communicate? Thinking about these things can help you find the spirit of your group.
The rise of paid communities. What's going on?
You might be mistaking audience vs community. When you follow a specific founder, buy their book, join their course etc you're buying access to that specific person and their experience. That's not automatically a community. A true community is founder-agnostic. It doesn't matter who the founder is.
