Hi all!!! I'm curious how everyone prioritizes rest while running your businesses. As a business owner currently in limbo (I never closed my business down completely and still have a few lingering clients that I work with), I know for a fact that my ignoring rest and self-care led me to this place. I'm currently trying to figure out where to go from here, but I'm nervous I'll fall into the same traps again. So what do you do to prioritize rest and take care of yourself as a business owner? I'm also very interested in doing things more passively, as well as with a small team or even just on my own. So any tips would be AMAZING.
In this episode, I am taking you behind the scenes of my free, public community “Creator Party”. I’m sharing my strategy for growing the community, why I am investing in growing a *free* community in my business, who the community is for and what I want it to be about and become, why I chose to make it public instead of private, and more! Listen to the episode here with the show notes, or find it on your favorite podcast app by searching and subscribing to The Mariah Coz Show podcast. In this episode: - Why I have decided to host a free community for everyone to join, even thought that wasn’t in my original “plan” until recently - My goals and vision for the community and why I think it will take some time to get there - Why I landed on the name “Creator Party” and what it means to me - All the fun things you can find inside the community - free courses, resources, updates, support, deeper discussions on each podcast episode and so much more! - How the structure of Skool makes the group really fun with points, levels, a leaderboard with rewards and more! - Why I decided to make the community “public” instead of “private” and the major differences - What strategies I’ll be testing for growing the community over time - Questions to ask yourself if you’re considering hosting a free community to create a space where you audience can have more conversations, and go beyond the “one way street” communication of social media platforms ➡️ Listen to the episode and let's have a discussion here in the comments! What questions do you have after listening? What are some fun things you would like to see in this community? Any surprising takeaways or a-ha's from this episode?
@Mariah Coz A long time ago when I actually enjoyed getting on Facebook, I had a free community. I enjoyed it but it was a lot of work! I'd be curious to hear how you think about maintaining energy/avoid burnout with a community.
@Brittany Berger So interesting! I'm mostly just fascinated by your business. 😄I love Notion but am very far from an expert and love that you've carved out a niche with this. Do you share tips on using Notion anywhere?
@Leigh Norén asked this question here https://www.skool.com/creator-party/skool-vs-circle I wanted to make sure everyone saw it! I'm recording a podcast episode about why we chose Skool and the transition process, and want to make sure I answer your biggest questions! So, what questions do you have about how we landed on Skool as our new platform for community + courses?
