Likeminded friends aren’t people we have everything in common with but with whom we share at least one strong passion or belief. We all have more in common than not, but you don’t know until you connect. Here are 3 good places to meet new friends.
If you love what you do for a living join a local or nationwide network or community. This will introduce you to other industry innovators and may help you identify opportunities for collaboration.
Join A Book Club
You can find both local and online book clubs. The key is in selecting a club that reads the type of books you are naturally drawn to, while introducing you to books you might not find your way to on your own. Think beyond the general categories of fiction, non-fiction, and self-help—to targeted genres or areas of study. Book clubs often read one book a month and meet once a month for an in-depth book discussion.
