If you’ve never heard of Twitter…
or you’re wondering what all the fuss is about…

Have you ever heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a child”?
When my husband and I got married in 2005, we wrote it on our invitations, with the addition of an African proverb: “…and it takes a tribe to make a marriage.”
I was reminded of this phrase when I attended a friend’s wedding on the weekend. I had the honour of attending a women’s circle with the bride the night before.
Back in 2005, we had asked the 100 men and women who attended our wedding to write down on a piece of paper their wisdom and advice, to help us through any tough times in our marriage. These words of wisdom were presented to my husband and I in two beautiful boxes, by the oldest man and the oldest woman present… the elders in our “tribe”.
So on Friday night, I gave a copy of these “wisdom cards” to the bride to share with her husband. And I have given it to other friends who have married since our wedding too. As I gave her the cards, I shared with her that she should always feel free to call on her community… When times got hard, and also when times were good, because no couple is an island, and it is in community that we find the strength, support and love to grow full.
So, how does this relate to your business?
