Relationships are vital to growing your business. One of the best stories of online success is Lori Deschene of Tiny Buddha.
She started connecting with people through one tweet a day on her Tiny Buddha account. People loved getting one daily wisdom tweet a day. She then created the popular blog aptly named Tiny Buddha and turned it into a community that gathers people’s stories of struggle, happiness, and wisdom.
The Tiny Buddha blog now has a 1.2 million viewership per month. Her success was not overnight. It took a lot of self discovery and relationship building to get to where she is today.
