The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #27
Building Online Communities with Ms In The Biz, Helenna Santos
This week’s guest blew me away! She has shown how building online communities can help so many people. What originally started as a business to help women in show business, actually has a readership of over 54% men. It goes to show the importance of quality content.
One of the most important lessons she shares, that really stood out to me, was her focus on committing the first 18 to 24 months of her business to building a brand and a community. That focus has paid dividends as she has grown from a community of 80 to over 200 writers in countries all over the world.
