Today’s Sunday blog covers how the right tribe behind you and with you helps you make a difference and makes a difference for you and the other with whom you connect. Please read on!


Since I began moderating Fredslist (and Promolist) at the end of last summer I early get to see requests for help, as well as thank yous to members of our Gotham tribe who responded to these requests. Other times posts share information, advise of Gotham events, request involvement in Gotham (event) committees, or request support (aka “sponsorships”) for some of these events (this correspondent being the chief “culprit” in that regard). Fredslist, to me, just reminds those who pay attention, and I hope that means every member of our tribe (it certainly should be the case!), how Gotham can make a difference for each of us.


Frankly, Gotham means more than networking to gain clients or projects, or a new gig (or a gig for a family member, colleague or friend). For me Gotham also provides resurces to help me help clients and even more recently, a non-profit I chair.


Through Gotham I got to know professionals who I recommended to clients and help edthose clients in areas I offer no expertise. Similarly, when the non-profit I took over as board chair last year needed advice in certain areas, I turned to Gotham and it delivered. Gotham even provided board members who – by their participation – improved the overall quality of the board.


So Gotham offers its members (and thus those connected to its members) quite a lot. Some of the sagas involved and hinte at above remain ongoing. With Gotham in my corner I enjoy a great deal of confidence. It certainly makes a difference.


Certainly share any Gotham success stories in the comments section.

    You just paparphrased everything I say about Gotham. To those who complain that they may not have gotten business I say they just don't get it.

    Clearly “Givers Get” and The Law Of Attraction is what moves the tribal universe. The most efffective way to navigate Gotham is to figure out who the Maven’s, Salespersons and Connectors are and to add them to your network and share their competitive intelligence and social capital with your sphere of influence. Those who learn how to accomplish this are truly and exponentially leveraging the culturescape that is Gotham.

    I echo what Fred said. Gotham’s core values are something my family has always believed in—And perhaps that’s why so many of its members are people I have come to consider “friends“. Even, oddly, some people I’ve actually never met, and only know from these blogs and email. Which is why despite the fact that meetings always seem to be held at times I have to be elsewhere, and getting to Manhattan midday is always an impossibility unless I have something else planned in Manhattan that day, I choose to remain a member. For fear of leaving someone out I will just say I’m grateful to all of you I have met through Gotham. Thank you Corey.
