I'm not sure when I first thought about starting The D.O.N.E. Society. I just knew that I wanted to be a part of a community that understood what I was trying to do professionally and personally. I wanted to exchange ideas, support other people, and tap into skill sets that I wanted to use but couldn't as a virtual assistant, social media marketer, or freelance writer.
I loved creating community in my previous profession and decided that I would create my own. I wanted to connect people with other people who could help them with business ideas and keep people from feeling alone as they work towards their future dreams.
The D.O.N.E. Society is a safe space to dream big, think outside the box, take action and get feedback. It's a place where you can take risks and no one thinks that you're crazy or tries to talk you out of what you're imagining.
The D.O.N.E. Society is my place to continue to serve and nurture people as they work towards their dream life.
One of the components from my old job that I really missed was producing events. The D.O.N.E. Society will be the place where I launch some "live" and virtual events. I look forward to sharing it with you soon.
I'm constantly looking to grow my skills! Part of what made me crazy about my old job was feeling like I was being road blocked from working on certain projects have loved to participate in. I felt boxed in by the scope of work in my job description. That may have been true or just crazy thoughts but I was fed up with not being allowed to work on certain projects because they were outside of my scope of work. How was I supposed to grow my role if I couldn't develop new skills? It was then and there that I decided to create opportunities that would allow me to learn skills and tasks that were outside of my role at work.
Now that I work for myself I still need to learn new skills and processes. The D.O.N.E. Society gives me a safe space to try new things out! You're my very loved community :)
The D.O.N.E. Society is primarily a support system for people who feel alone as they work towards online entrepreneurship. No naysayers here! Just people who are dreaming big in the same way.
