Collaboration is an important part of Montana Woman's mission. It is about putting all and any baggage aside, bringing your best self to the table, and focusing on the common goal. I can understand how some may be wary of collaboration because of fear. I encourage you to set that fear aside. There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to be stars, unique and fabulous.
I believe collaboration isn't about giving up your individuality. Quite the opposite: it's about realizing your potential. It's about bringing your many gifts to the table and sharing them in the pursuit of a common goal. It's about bringing your ideas, your passion, your mind, heart and soul to your business and community.
Montana Woman Magazine also realizes the importance of uplifting one another. I believe we need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins. Each page of Montana Woman Magazine is filled with community members, organizations and businesses that are actively differentiating themselves by being people-oriented and focusing on building others up.
Won't you join us in creating a community that encourages collaboration and not competition? Won't you join us in inspiring change in others? If you want to see what the potential for change looks like, look in the mirror. It starts with you.
