What People SayOur amazing community–in their words!
I have learned so much about community from Leah & Naz. I feel so much more connected with the leader inside of me knowing that my community doesn’t rest upon my two shoulders. It’s about the individual strength that each community member brings to the table. My eyes are literally opened as I watched Leah & Naz empower us to share, contribute and step up during our retreat. They wanted to hear from us – as if they knew that the conversation would be richer by adding in individual voices of each member there. Throughout the weekend, I experienced the heavy weight of stress and pressure leaving my body as I learned that the true power of community doesn’t come from the leader, TO the followers. True power comes from engaging with and empowering those that are within the community as you walk with them, speak with them and interact with them instead of speak down to them “from your platform”. I’m in the beginning of my community building efforts in my life – and my approach now feels so much more richer, genuine and just out-right fun than what I did before I attended this retreat. Thank you to Leah and Naz for being the type of leader that allows other people to step up and contribute. I realize this community is deeply enriched by our two very brave, honest and wildly fun leaders, Leah & Naz.
Straight up and to the point. Just like these ladies are in real life. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them over the past few years, and I can say they walk their talk. It’s refreshing, welcome and so needed in this space. I’ve been ‘a number’, been spammed, and opted-out of so many communities b/c I feel as if I’m being ‘sold’ on something. They add value, they engage, and they really do truly care. Trust in the advice they share above. It works… they are proving it. In this connected world, it’s the real connections that matter and will last the test of time. I, for one, look forward to seeing – and engaging with them – many more times to come. ROCK ON, LADIES!

“It made believe in that fact that I can do this, that everything is possible. Before I was like, “Can I even do this?” That was just a huge mindset for me. As far as the results goes, from that idea that it’s not gonna work to now all of a sudden I have a full calendar of coaching clients.”
“It was such a different experience than I expected and an awesome one. Being part of the program gave me room to brainstorm and come up with new ideas, including how to successfully raise funds to support 120 Kenyan children. I am one step closer to living my dream and starting my own not-for-profit. This program is worth every cent and more.”
“They cheerleaded me to tell me how brave I was and supported me on my journey. They help me realize what my next steps were that I needed to take. Leah & Naz gave me the confidence to believe in my projects.”
“Leah was able to identify my mental obstacles that were in the way. My business wasn’t moving forward with the momentum I wanted, and the workshop series was just what I needed to get me where I wanted to be. Not only was Leah’s coaching incredible to build my confidence, but she really articulated identifying my client and mental obstacles I needed to jump through.”
I belong to The Connection Effect community and the connections I have made there are ones I will have for life – everyone really cares about each others’ success, and we not only give assistance during tough times, but hell, we motivate each other to keep wanting to take action and really create long lasting businesses and friendships. It has completely changed the way I view my own community building – and is aligned with the personal touch I want to bring to my own business.

As a start up I have felt confused and intimidated by all the info out there and advice about building massive lists etc. etc. and all the promises that come with that.. What you have shared here makes so much sense to me and the tips are fantastic. I really appreciate finally hearing someone speak about building community and relationships alongside a business without wanting something from me and from others. I admire your work ladies! Thank you!
The Connection Effect community building here is testament for the great work these ladies do. I assure you Leah and Naz are the real deal. My new business would never have come this far without their support – and advice on how they are nurture their own community. Love this post as its valuable for anyone – frankly it’s just good business practice – great for anyone marketing a brand – their own personal brand or another brand they represent.
