BEN ARMENT Guest Post: The Empty Promise Of The Insincere Tribe

Ben Arment

 

I understand the tendency.

You put out a free thing. People sign up. You think you’ve got a tribe. But you don’t.

You have rallied people who want a free thing.

It’s an insincere tribe.

I’m interested in finding a sincere tribe. People who are like minded, who have the same collective purpose. People who aren’t compelled by freebies but by a cause, a community, a life-altering vision. A fraternity of friends…

Where 10 years from now, everyone looks at us and says, “How did those people happen to know each other way back when?”
