A few months ago, I closed my free Facebook group that had over 12,000 members in it.
Originally, my goal was to create a more intimate space where all my email subscribers, students, clients and followers could connect and support each other with their goals as part of a private online community. My Happy Black Woman brand attracts some smart women with BIG dreams and I wanted to have a special place for us for gather.
The group was also intended to be a dedicated platform where I could share my content because Facebook’s ever-changing algorithms were/are making less and less people see my stuff on my official Facebook page of 500K fans! With a group, it was much easier to make sure my followers actually saw all the blog posts, podcasts and videos I was putting out to educate, inspire and empower them to create their ideal lives and businesses.
Of course, the group started out great and we had some amazing conversations. But by the second year, it had grown so much that it took on a life of its own.
I had to have a team member help me moderate the group and weed out spammers. We had to constantly review posts and delete those who were blatantly promoting their business (even when they thought they were being slick), MLM “consultants” trying to recruit more people for their downline, super-religious members who just kept posting bible verses and prayers all day long and oh yeah, the creepy men who wanted to get their mack on in a group full of beautiful black women.
After a while, I simply became frustrated with all the time it was taking just to monitor everything and decided to close the group.
However, I definitely missed the vibe of the group back when it was small and all we talked about was our goals, sharing ideas and giving support.
I missed the community, the connections that were made, the meetups that happened and most of all – being able to get to know my tribe on a deeper level.
So – after some reflection, I have decided to open a BRAND NEW GROUP…
Announcing the all-new Happy Black Woman Facebook Tribe, the OFFICIAL high-vibe community for ambitious black women who want it all!
I’m excited because by starting fresh, I can really vet the members coming in with Facebook’s new questionnaire feature. New members will now be required to answer questions and agree to the group rules when requesting to join. If you don’t answer ALL questions when you request access, you will not be approved. Allow up to 24-48 hours for approval!
WHAT YOU WILL FIND IN THIS GROUP:
- Weekly livestreams & inspiration from mindset coach & business mentor Rosetta Thurman to help you achieve your big goals in life and business
- Ongoing accountability for your personal & professional goals through weekly check-in threads
- High-vibe conversations about mindset, manifestation, personal development, self-care, online business, money, success, travel and lifestyle
- A supportive community where you can meet other like-minded, goal-oriented black women from around the world
- Notifications about Happy Black Woman events, courses and resources (be the first to know about our upcoming workshops, retreats, etc!)
Keep in mind that this is a positive, high-vibe community, which means no depressing “woe is me” posts, woman-shaming, drama, gossip, political rants or religious diatribes. THIS GROUP IS FOR WOMEN ONLY.
Also, this group is a NO PROMO ZONE. That means there is absolutely NO PROMOTION, SELLING or RECRUITING allowed in this group whatsoever. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, then come on over and join us! If not, that’s fine, too :)
P.S. My first livestream training in the group will be this Monday, December 11 at 1pm Pacific! I’ll be walking you through my Annual Review/Preview Reflection Guide with tips and inspiration for ending the year strong.
