This week in community building โ€” Issue 110

๐Ÿ™ˆ This week I had to make Web 3 itโ€™s own section.

Here are two (of like a million) things on my mind this week.

๐ŸŒˆ Join me for a guide on creating profitable and sustainable communities

Iโ€™m going to dive into my current thinking about creating communities that are sustainable and profitable. There are no magic and quick fixes for any of this, but itโ€™s worth getting this one out there!

๐ŸŒˆ Minimum Viable Community Gardens?

I often talk about communities being like community gardens, but whatโ€™s the word when you have a bunch of gardens that will eventually become one? Or are they micro-gardens that eventually become one? Or, I have to say, maybe they are minimum viable community gardens?

I had that thought today when I realised the Study Groups we are doing at Orbit are essentially that.This tweet is in reference to our Community Operations for Events happening today/tomorrow.
