215: Should You Build Your Community In Person or Online? with Angela Gage


Have you found yourself longing for community and connection that moves beyond the screen to in person? What would it look like to build community in both spaces? Today I’m talking with one of our REALIFE Process® Certified Facilitators, Angela Gage, as she shares about creating a place of belonging for women professionals.


We talk about:

  • What it looked like for Angela to pivot and shift multiple times before finding her sweet spot
  • How her own desire for community and collaboration led to a place of belonging for others
  • How her community, the Belonging Collaborative, provides a place of growth and support for women professionals


If you’ve ever tried a new venture only to discover the timing was off or it wasn’t quite right yet, this episode will resonate with you! Angela’s story will inspire you to keep going until you discover what connects both with you AND with your clients, and give you ideas for multiple ideas and expressions of community.


About Angela Gage:

Angela loves creating community and connection, and she founded The Belonging Collaborative® in June 2022 from a desire to work amongst other women entrepreneurs and growth-minded professionals with their own private practice, business, team, or non-profit. She began this as a result of her own pain of working in isolation from home and desperate need of the support of other women since launching her Spiritual Direction private practice months before the great Covid Shutdown of 2020.


The Belonging Collaborative® is a group of growth-minded women professionals intentional about empowering one another to be and do their best together. To learn more about Angela and the in-person AND virtual communities she provides, CLICK HERE.
