We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men. ~Herman Melville

Community: what does it mean to you, your business, your career, your craft?

In today’s economy, community is necessary for both survival and success.

We’re more successful when we share knowledge, resources and information than by going it alone. Partnerships are important, and humans crave interconnectivity and sharing. By connecting with our peers and seeking collaboration, we create new opportunities for growth and learning.
