When my wife and I got married, my sister asked us, “Do you have 3 people you can call on no matter what happens?” It was a great question. Do YOU have 3 people you can call on? Or 12? If not, all is not lost … yet. Start showing up at a few particular events, time after time: Local 5k races, Habitat for Humanity, Monday Night Football, church, midnight Spanish dancing night, the weekly Chamber of Commerce meeting. Start spending time with the same people, and find your 3 and your 12 people who will support you, encourage you, and trust you. If you have a particular idea in mind, find a club or group who meets about it. It might take a couple years, but you can build your group, who energizes with you.
