It’s been a long road for me some days since becoming location independent but there are two things I am pretty much always droning about because without them, life would have me in the fetal position and ugly-crying all the way back to my soul-crushing 9-5 job … COMMUNITY and NETWORKING. Luckily Facebook groups came to my rescue to offer of both of these sweet little miracles!
Through these Facebook groups (and a few others I’m going to share with you that are apparently the “cat’s meow” but I haven’t gone and checked them out in their entirety yet), I’ve learned SO many important things about running a virtual business, surviving as a freelancer, growing my blog and thriving in my location independent lifestyle in spite of the many challenges. I’ve made some amazing friends and even had the opportunity to collaborate on some truly inspiring projects. And I want all of that for you, too.
“Everything you do as a community builder should be about the community. Everything.”

But before you dive into the greatness of the list below and all the opportunities it will bring your way, double back to a post I did late last year where I talked about the benefits of Facebook groups and a detailed list of all the ones I’m currently active in that I feel you may also enjoy, depending on your business style and needs of course.
Now, go forth and use this list to find your online tribe ...!

“Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.” - Travis Bradberry, Author
