Building A Community And The Fundamental Things To Keep It Growing with Jono Bacon

Communities have this amazing phenomenon that we’ve seen for 1000s of years. If you’ve got 100 people, let’s say there’s 100 of your listeners, each one of those people has got different ideas and perspectives, and time, and expertise and experiences. And when you bring all of those things out into the open in a collaborative environment, then we can learn and we can benefit from each other, we can collaborate more effectively together.
