Early last year a couple pretty awesome girls out of Annopolis Maryland started a group (turned movement) called the Rising Tide Society. Their mission; to educate and empower creatives through the spirit of community over competition. They began local groups called Tuesdays Togethers, and as of last August I’ve had the incredible honor to lead our very own area Tuesdays Together group.
Open to all, we meet once a month to network and talk/educte eachother about certain aspects of our businesses. It has truly been incredible to see so many people come together to help eachother out. People who look past competing with eachother, and instead help lift eachother up.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to travel down to Charleston, SC for a two day Tuesdays Together leadership retreat. It was such a blast getting to meet other leaders from across the country, and hearing how they’re transforming their communities through their groups. We spent a good amount of those two days listening to amazing speakers like Amy and Jordan Demos, learning everything from curating your Instagram feed to mixing drinks, and overall just connecting with great people.
As I left the retreat I left with a greater sense of hope, and that what I was doing in my career right. Being with that group of creatives confirmed that I was right where I belonged. Unfortunately I didn’t get to capture even half of what I wish I had of the actual retreat, but as you’ll see…me and the friends I made during our time sure got a lot of pics out of our time together! 😉
