Today, we live in a noisy world. Everyone is vying for everyone else’s attention. So, what are we to do?

There are, of course, only two options. One is to be quiet and let the talkers talk. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with this, but that’s not always the right choice.

Recently, I read an interview with John Grisham, in which he shared how it took him three years to write his first book. He was a busy lawyer and a new dad, arguably in the busiest season of his life.

While he was writing this book, he would occasionally go into a bookstore and look at the tens of thousands of books there, and wonder to himself, Who wants to hear from me?!

But the truth was lots of people did.

How to build your own tribe

The same is true for you. You have a tribe, an audience out there who is waiting for you to speak up. But if you just start talking, they won’t listen. You have to earn their attention, and that is a subtle art that takes practice.

When I decided to become a writer, I knew it would take work and that I’d have to build an audience. So I sought out people who were smarter than me. And I learned from them.

This is how we grow in our craft today: We surround ourselves with those who are wiser and more experienced than we are.

So, to help you build your own tribe, I’ve rounded up some of the smartest tribe-builders I know to offer some helpful advice on how to share your work with the world in a way that won’t be annoying or forgettable. These are authors, speakers, and entrepreneurs who you should listen to because they’ve actually taken the journey and found success.

I gathered their thoughts together to create a new, free eBook, Tribe Building from the Trenches: 14 Tips from Those Who Have Done It.

Read on at your own peril, though.

Because once you hear this advice, you can’t un-hear it. You will be responsible for what you know and for what comes next. And you just might be called to act, speak up, and let your voice be heard.
