I keep getting asked about the secrets of running a successful community. After spending a decade in this field I still have no answer.
Past few years living on my own has been humbling. It has taught me many new things. The topmost being: there is no one fit for all path.
We are all different so is our way of building anything. The journey we take also differs.
I understand the emergence of social media has amplified the creation of many gurus. Many books are written every year of how to be happy, run a successful company and what not.
Read them but in the end, the journey is yours. You have to run on its own.
