When running a business and as an entrepreneur, I strongly believe that is our responsibility to show up:
- as an individual
- for your community
- in times of crisis
- when we see social injustice such as racism
But it is often not easy to know what to do and how to show up effectively without getting overwhelmed.
To discuss this topic, I am bringing you an expert in community leadership, Naomi Hattaway.
“Instead of using the word ‘ally’ use the word ‘antagonist’ but the work starts at your kitchen table”
Naomi Hattaway is the founder of I Am A Triangle, an online community with thousands of globally located members with one thing in common – they have lived around the world, away from their passport countries. She also owns 8th & Home Real Estate and Relocation, a nationwide referral network, matching families on the move with real estate professionals who chase communities and not commissions.
After living in several locations in the United States, her family (three kids, now in college and high school) moved overseas to Delhi, India where she learned to thrive in the midst of chaos. Following a one-year stint in Singapore, they are now back in the United States, and she has traipsed her way from Florida to Virginia to Ohio and is now back in her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Naomi is passionate about community building and empowering others to thrive, not just survive, in the places they call home.
