We’re heading in difficult months this winter. We believe we can manage when we’re part of a community that cares. We’re caring our way through difficult months to harness our resilience.
On our way, we’re paying attention to what helps us feel better. We’ll encourage you to focus on strategies that work in order to turn that wisdom into a book you may write, a podcast you may host or a workshop you may deliver. You’ll also be able to submit a proposal to present at our upcoming virtual conference, The Caring Conference, which will take place April 9 and 10, 2021. The conference theme is Our Resilient Spirit.
You’ll want to join us if you want to be connected to support and want to turn difficulty into resilience that becomes wisdom you share with others. Your wisdom can become your conference presentation or artwork or photography. You also write your book, start your podcast, or begin a video show.
Denise M. Brown hosts our community. She launched her first online community in 1996 and has been supporting individuals through difficult times since 1990. She regularly organizes and hosts national conferences and in-person virtual events. She completed life coach training in 2004 and uses the skills she learned to share encouraging words and comforting perspectives. Learn more about Denise.
Rick Tamlyn, Denise’s business coach, regularly says, “The mess becomes your message.” What challenges you during your life becomes the content about your life you use to help others. In other words, when you have a tough day, you’ve just added another chapter to your book. When we can look at difficult times from a distance, we can learn more about how we cope. What we learn becomes what we can teach through presentations, books and training programs.
Denise believes that support leads to resilience which creates a story that others will want to hear. She also knows that healing our difficult days comes through opportunities. When we have opportunities, we have a future.
We so look forward to connecting with you!
(Please note: You’ll want to join us if you believe in safe practices within your neighborhood, like wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.)
We're here to support you through difficult days and to encourage you as you develop a presentation or workshop, the outline for your book or an idea for a podcast. Keeping us posted on your progress will inspire us in our initiative. Our real-life experiences become our classroom from we learn what works. Our community becomes the lunchroom and dinner table where we gather to compare notes and talk out ideas. Our conference becomes the stage for to present and share your work. In addition, to workshops and sessions, our conference will include an art show.
We often go through difficult times silently. We don’t want to burden our family members or friends so plow through the problems. We also can find it difficult to connect with others who understand our stress. We all deserve an opportunity to vent our frustrations and express our worries. When you join us, you can.
In our community, you can share updates, pose questions, write blog posts, and connect with us in our monthly member and Twitter chats. You can download our app (see below) in order to keep us posted when you can. Our app becomes your safe place, a space that’s just for you to share honestly about your day.
You also can join our Three Positives group, which prompts you to notice three positives in your day, and our special 30-day challenges like our Be Present Challenge in December and our Be Creative Challenge in January.
You can get feedback from us about your presentation proposal you’ll submit for a chance to speak at our upcoming conference, The Caring Conference. When others in your network join us through your invitation, you’ll be rewarded with time with Denise to discuss your presentation idea.
Finally, you can receive encouragement as you work through your creative process. You can show us your creation in progress so we can cheer you on to finish.
Difficult days will test us. Our resilience will help us. Our wisdom gained will inspire us.
We’re like a think tank focused on better understanding resilience. How does an individual and a community continue during difficult days? How does an individual committed to supporting others impact a community? How does a community focused on creating and sharing good work change the world?
Our insights will become our sessions during The Caring Conference, a special virtual event taking place on April 9 and 10, 2021. In addition, we’ll host an art show during our conference.
We need thinkers and creators and believers just like you to join us.
