I often get asked what reFIND is and how did this project come about so allow me to share a bit…
I grew up in a religion where the women would gather once a month to learn a new skill or do a craft but it was really a place where we could connect and hang out once a month without our kids or daily responsibilities!
When I left the Mormon church I lost a great deal of community. I’ve spent the last 12 years trying to find it wherever I was but I often found myself without a solid community to lean on and learn from. I opened an online boutique and created a sense of community within but quickly realized that I wasn’t the only one longing for that sense of connection.
After months of my husband asking me if I was sure I didn’t want to create a female only version of Facebook…(hello…dream big but maybe not Zuckerburg big dude)…I realized that if I couldn’t find my community I needed to CREATE my community. And not only online, I wanted to HANG. I wanted to feel those hugs and create that ritual of spending an evening together each month.
So reFIND Network was born in October of 2018. We have a Members Only group online where we connect, share wins and losses, chat about what’s working in life and laugh together. I speak every week on the topic of the month and once a month we have a guest speaker come in and spend some time on a personal development topic. Our two common bonds are our womanhood and our desire to reach for our best selves in life and lean into our own brand of extraordinary.
In November of 2018 we also started our very first in person tribe in Rancho Cucamonga, California! We meet once a month to connect, learn a new skill, have a fun girls night or just chat about what’s going on in our lives. In 2019 we will be starting new in person tribes all over the United States!
