The Power of Offering
In a chain of events last week, an idea and a new relationship were born. That idea will continue to form new relationships as it grows. Throughout the story is what Phil Gerbyshak calls “The Power of WE.” Here is what happened.
Chris Owen from Pink Apple Connections wrote about how, if Australia were closer she could be part of SOBcon 07. Leah MacLean wrote about Chris’ post with a suggestion and a questionn about how SOBcon started. Leah’s post generated a pile of comments and a possible Australian conference in the making. It also led to a message from me.
Leah and I met Skype — a brand new relationship. I told her how the relationships at Succeesful-Blog were the seed for the SOBcon event. By the time that call was over, Leah and I were planning a new, virtual event across the dateline.
Working Solo and Successful Blog present the Virtual SOBcon preconference event on March 12.
Chris’ post and her wish to be at a conference with her “mate Phil” put so many things into motion. It started my relationship with Leah and an entirely new event. All of that happened because some folks wanted to have a conference in Chicago. It’s incredible what happens when we engage the Power of WE.
We can change the world — just like that.
