This month, I had the incredible honor and privilege of traveling down to Los Angeles to speak at a MEGA TuesdaysTogether meet-up at the Historic Ace Hotel + Theatre in the heart of downtown.

As many of you know, I’m one of the Founders of the Rising Tide Society and when we merged with HoneyBook several months ago—it gave me the ability to pursue this dream full time. This community is a huge part of my heart and having the opportunity to lead it is a tremendous honor.

Not sure what the Rising Tide Society is? We’re a global network of innovators and creative entrepreneurs—spanning 400+ local chapters that meeting monthly in the spirit of community over competition. It all started in May of 2015, when we hosted our first set of TuesdaysTogether gatherings in twelve cities across the East Coast. One by one we added more local chapters in cities across the United States and the movement spread.

In addition to hosting local TuesdaysTogether meet-ups, we are dedicated to providing affordable and accessible education for small business owners (often with a philanthropic focus). We share blog content from thought-leaders in the creative industry, host free educational webinars and plan online Rising Tide Society Summits.

Understanding Your Personality Type:

 
This month’s topic was Personality Types and I had the chance to fly down to Los Angeles for the day to speak at a MEGA meet-up that combined several of our local chapters into one gathering. Roughly 150 creative entrepreneurs made it out to the event at the Ace Theatre and we had an incredible time connecting + learning together.

My talk was a mix of a few things—covering the topic of the month, explaining the birth of the Rising Tide Society, and an open Q&A. It was a ton of fun to make so many new friends and connect with our chapter leaders in the area.

When I first started my business, I never thought about the impact that a personality type could have on the way in which someone approaches entrepreneurship. I didn’t realize that every single one of us had unique strengths that could be leveraged to increase profitability and improve our client experiences.

Fast forward a few years and I have learned a few important things about myself:

  • Although I’m outgoing, I am easily drained after spending a lot of time out with people. Sound familiar? You may also be an introvert.
  • I love ideation, dreaming big, and thinking about what ‘could be’. Upon taking a StrengthsFinder assessment, I learned that Futurism was my top strength. (I also learned that surrounding myself with executors would be the key to ensuring that my ideas would turn into something more!)
  • Understanding my strengths also allowed me to better know my weaknesses. This self-awareness became the key for anticipating potential roadblocks and understanding my most valuable role in the larger framework of any organization, community, or company.

Life as an INFP

 
The more I began to understand myself, the better I became as a leader and entrepreneur. It goes back to the fundamental idea of being able to leverage your strengths, hire for your weaknesses, and delegate those responsibilities that keep you from doing what you were created to do.

For example, INFPs are “sensitive, caring, and compassionate, and are deeply concerned with the personal growth of themselves and others.” Many famous INFPs are poets, writers and actors—such as: Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, John Lennon, William Shakespeare, Helen Keller, and C.S. Lewis. (Truity.com)

They are also a part of the Diplomat personality group according to 16Personalities.com, which means that INFPs are guided first by their principles and they “are led by the purity of their intent, not rewards and punishments.” 

My personality type makes up 4% of the population and is common among creatives and writers. What about you?

Thank you again to the entire Los Angeles chapter for welcoming me to the city and all of the volunteers who made this a reality! A special thank you to Renee of Moxie Bright Events and Holly of Events by Holly Gray for organizing the entire event + driving me to and from the airport.
