Leveraging Your Tribe

I’m a Seth Godin devotee. I blog about him, I read his blog, and I’m overall more inspired to make more stuff because of the way he frames creating and making a difference.

Seth’s new project is a test case of a method of publishing books he thinks will be the future for successful authors. Here’s his Kickstarter pitch, which gives a good overview of what he’s trying to do.

Seth already has the tribe. Now he has proven that you can get over 4,000 people to pledge over $287,000 to help publish a book that is now only an idea. Like he says in the video, Kickstarter isn’t useful for building a tribe, it’s true power is in leveraging the tribe you’ve been working to build.

I started working on my idea today, and I’ll share it with you when it’s ready to be shared.
