The Purpose of Community: How to Network With Purpose

Finding community is a hot topic these days. What isn’t discussed as much is the purpose of community and how to find it.

This episode was actually a request from a member of the purpose collective community. She wanted some tips for putting yourself out there to network with the hopes of finding women (and men) that can positively impact your life and purpose. 

I invited today’s guest, Christina, onto the show to help us out.

Christina Duren founded the Beautiful Brown Girls Brunch Club in March of 2010. Over the last 11 years, Beautiful Brown Girls™ has blossomed into so much more than a brunch club. It is a community made up of 34 chapters. Each one is a sister circle.

Christina believes that in order to build a strong nation, that’s what we need – sister circles and other strong communities.

Beautiful Brown Girls is proof of what can happen when you find your people. Not only can you bond over a delicious meal, but you can also become an agent for change in your community.

  • How Christina came up with the idea for the Beautiful Brown Girls Brunch Club
