Entrepreneurship can be a lonely endeavor without effective connections. However, in today's age of technology, it's easier than ever to form and engage with communities of like-minded individuals. This connection can provide valuable feedback, motivation, and support to help you navigate the setbacks of this journey. Connections do not have to be those big, flashy moments. It's possible to create big changes with small connections, as Jen Nash tells us in this episode.
