The tribe of #YourTurnChallenge
"You will get what you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want." Zig Ziglar
Over 500,000 people follow Seth Godin and his daily blog. We are, in essence, the Tribe. And, with the #YourTurnChallenge, Seth is able to give the Tribe what they want. In return, hopefully he receives what he wants (and it is much more than sales of his new book).
The beauty of it all is the Tribe has come to life, sharing their stories, and "shipping their art" as Seth likes to call it.
And because of Seth's genius idea, we are all benefiting from being introduced to such talented artists.
Andy Stitt poured his heart into the Day 1 Challenge and through it we learned how to simplify the complexity of generosity.
Priscilla Tallman reminds us we are all in this together and that one voice can changes lives -- though only when it speaks.
Vanessa Thomas took the Challenge to new heights by starting a blog in response to it. She was ready (Junbi) to choose herself, and we are all better for it.
Tosinger is sharing her art, inspiring us all to stretch our dreams.
Catrina Ossman reminds us that sometimes all we need is a little motivation to get started.
Drew Griffin is thinking deeply about the Challenge itself, sharing insights into what it means to ship, opportunity, and acceptance.
But, one of my favorites of Day 1 was Tom Larsen. Tom is in insurance and somewhere along the way I saw a note from him lamenting the fact that he is concerned that blogging about insurance is not exciting enough.
Yet, in perusing his first post it led me to look over his blog overall. I encourage you to read Tom's blog. Insurance may not be sexy but saving money, protecting your belongings, and increasing your wealth is sexy. Sometimes they just disguise themselves under the insurance heading.
The Tribe is much more extensive than this list, and I could truly not do it justice in trying to describe it, or even the ones I listed here. However, I simply encourage you to join us. We are a worldwide Tribe who share the commonality of following Seth Godin and his writings.
However, there's always room for you in our Tribe. We need to hear what you have to say.
