Cari & I have been through a lot together these past 2 years. Our time together started out like any new relationship, we were always so excited to go on our ‘date’ and discuss all the possibilities of our idea. We texted and talked a million times a day, stole conversations about our plans while we were supposed to be working on something else. As we got deeper into the planning, we supported each other & made each other laugh as the going got tough, and often absurd.
Except ours wasn’t a new relationship, it was an old relationship that was going to be evolving into something very different. We’ve been good friends for close to 10 years, so making the decision to build a business together was a risk. What if we lost our friendship in the process? What if we didn’t get along after a while? What if we start spending more time together & she decides she doesn’t really like me as much as she thought?! My eccentric British ways might drive her crazy. My cat obsession might be too much.
What you don’t really think about at first, or even just fully grasp, is that when you choose to go into business with another person, that you’re effectively making the same commitment as deciding to marry someone. We were even advised by our Score mentor to make a pre-nup!
Thankfully, our relationship has transformed into something fabulous. I’m still excited to see her every time we have a ‘date’ and we re-energize & empower each other like any good couple should. I was worried that talking business all the time would mean that I missed just hanging out and talking about nonsense. But I’ve found instead that it just gives us way more things to talk nonsense about!
So anyway, with that said, we are excited to move into the next phase of Tribe’s development and begin the work of getting the word out about what goes on in this little boutique holistic healthcare community we’ve created. Our blog will feature thoughts & ideas on living a health filled & fun loving life that is in tune with nature and seeks to give more than receive. We’ll ask our members, and occasionally guest bloggers, to share information on the things they do to create a better world, for the earth as a whole & for their internal world.
The symbol in our logo, the Koru, represents new beginnings and harmony, a great representation of our friendship, our partnership and our journey. We hope you enjoy our blog. You’ll learn that we are all a bit loopy. Natural healers are outside of the box 90% of the time. So come join us in getting out of the box!
