We are choosing to take risks to follow a greater sense of calling.
We are are doing business in new ways.
We are choosing to live in love and let go of fear.

Here are a few comments about the question, "What do you like most about the group?"
The level of energy, the vitality of the group and the diversity. New ways to see the world through healthy and energetic ways.
The people and the energy they bring.
Non-traditional vibe of it all. the energy of people with common goals coming together in support of one another.
I love to network with business owners and hear what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how successful they are. The talks are great too.
I like the openness of the group, the new thought foundation and connectedness of what we are co-creating. I also like the access I have to what the group offers for either my use or the use of others that I know.
What I liked most when I came was being with a group of people that I felt comfortable with.
I really like the structured format – I think it works perfectly. There is a definite schedule of events which is consistent from meeting to meeting, which to me helps the group feel professional and organized. Without the right leadership, a group like this could easily unravel into something stagnant and uninteresting, but it manages instead to acheive what I would consider a very difficult balance – the group feels stable and sustainable, AND it does so without losing the excitement that got it together in the first place.
The openness of people – their expression of what they think and how they feel about contributing to the community.
The marvelous energy of the group. the atmosphere feels loving, accepting and stimulating
The leadership given by Sylvia Nibley is excellent. The group seems to attract high quality professionals. I have increased the productivity of my business through my participation.
Diversity of professional people and entrepreneurs. Has allowed me to meet many people who have changed careers and have dedicated all or part of their professional and personal lives to helping people and making the world a better place.
The diverse members of the group. The good and peaceful ambiance.
A nicely diverse group of fantastic individuals. Meetings are central, efficient and friendly.
Connecting with like minded people who are all entrepreneurs and business owners. We encourage each other tremendously.
The wonderful energy!
The energy in the room. The comraderie.
...I love the energy of the people.
I like the energy of the group. I also have enjoyed the lunch lectures. They have been very informative for me...
The people that you have attracted, the connectedness and safeness of the group. It's a networking group that has heart integrated into businesses.

I just wanted to compliment you on starting something that is so worthwhile, it is simply amazing! The energy the group puts out!! Wow - what a dynamic group!! I especially enjoyed the speaker today. I think we all know those things are possible, we just need to be reminded of it and taught how to make the energy work for us.
I will be there! I had such a good time last month, it is a priority for me! Thank you and shine on!
– Laura S.
Mapmakers is awesome. I had a wonderful time.
There is a real feeling of comraderie amongst the attendees. Having been gone for 4 months, I really noticed it.
- Paige Paulsen
Thank you - not only for arranging the meeting every month, but for your obvious love and your gift of service to this community.
It has been so fun to look at your updates and realize the love that is pouring forth from Our Community Connection. You all make such a difference. Just being in your presence has transformed how I think of business networks, people in business and community, and the use of business talents to the Greater Good.
It will really be a joy to get to know this wonderful group and find ways to be involved with some of them. I just want to thank you for coming up with this network of artistic and talented people to mingle with. I will make it a point to take the time each month to come if at all possible.
All I know for sure is that my business is deeply rewarding when I come from a place of "sharing my experience, strength & hope" with others, when it is given over to spirit. I simply do not "flower" in the old business, marketing ways. I would love to gather with like minded people who are walking this path....Thank you for creating this new circle. It felt awesome.
- Marla Dee
You are such a brilliant diamond, not only for Utah but for getting people gathered together! Bravo!
- Patricia Steigauf
We find ourselves bouncing through radical transitions these days -within and without- and as a result we are truly beginning to take refuge in the love instead of the fear. To connect with our deepest hearts and open minds in the Business Dance is an opportunity to bring all of ourselves to all of our lives with sacred support. Ah, the miracles that await us now as we give our gifts from the truth of us.
