Better together

ClaraOne of the most wonderfully unexpected things about the 10-day Busines Book Proposal Challenge is that people within the group connect not just with me, but with each other. Who knew?

Three great examples today: 

1. One second-time challenger posted her marketing plan, which included a joint venture with someone who was on the previous challenge with her and is in a similar space. 

2. Two first-time challengers swapped contact details for high-profile speaking opportunities - and discovered that they shared a mutual family friend in the process!

3. One previous challenger posted the gorgeous character, Clara, that a fellow challenger had drawn for him to illustrate his book. Meet Clara - illustrating clear English for Howard Walwyn, drawn by the winner of the last proposal challenge, Cara Holland.

And this is what happens when you set up a community: people connect, things happen, new stuff comes into the world. It's ace.

I love how you write such beautifully concise posts. I admire your writing, hugely. I am still learning the skill of writing short and sweet.

Ah, thank you Sherry - what a lovely compliment! You'll note the time this was posted - 23:04 - when you realise you've not yet blogged at the 11th hour it's surprisingly easy to write short!

Reading this makes me want to know what community you created and how to join! :-) What a great way to share the results of what you have created, what the people in the community are doing and the connections that happen when you bring people together with a common theme. Great post!
