1. Pick a passion you want to explore further (X).

What’s something you love and wish you could connect with others on a deeper level about?

2. Seek out people who are also interested in X.

Start with your closest friends and branch outward (e.g. friends, acquaintances, people you know on social media, etc.).

3. Talk to them about X.

Ask questions, listen, share opinions and recommendations. In person is better if others are local, but digital conversations will be more convenient.

4.  Continue talking to them about X.

It could be every day, once a week, etc. Agree to some sort of cadence.

5. Recruit new people who might be interested in X.

Ask the people you’ve been connecting with if they know anyone who shares X passion. Continue to seek out people online and locally.

6. Keep going.

You can make your tribe as small or big as you want it to be. What’s important is that you step up and be the leader others are looking for.

What tribe are you interested in creating?
