In our business, as with most any field, competition is fierce. We live in a premiere destination wedding location and there is no shortage of vendors from which clients can choose when planning their big day. It would seem, then, that business growth conferences and networking groups would get first dibs on our calendar. What caught our attention a year ago, however, was a national organization called The Rising Tide Society that fosters a completely different mindset. Their monthly TuesdaysTogether gatherings are based on the philosophy of community over competition, which fit perfectly with who we are – so much so that Pure7’s co-owner, Erica, decided to start a local chapter. Almost immediately, it was clear that this concept resonated with more than just the #pure7fam. Erica just returned from the first national conference in Charleston (fab photos below!). With over 50 local creative entrepreneurs coming to next week’s meet-up, we thought we’d chat with her to find out why this is such a big deal.
