What People Say

Our 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!

Recently I was introduced to Leah Hynes & Nazrin Murphie, whom are the Founders of The Connection Effect. When Leah and I were chatting she mentioned to me her frustration with the online business world and the strong emphasis everyone has on “Building Your Email List”. While having a big email database is desirable to build a successful business, she raised with me the fact, that so often people are treated as numbers, and there is a strong disparity between actual real life connections and the size of your email database.
Leah and Nazrin have built an extremely successful business while busting the common mantra that you need a big email list to succeed in business and the online world. Leah and Nazrin are going to share with you guys exactly how they are building such a raving community and successful business from building REAL relationships with their email subscribers.

Being part of The Connection Effect community, I can attest to being on the receiving end of their emails and check-ins. This always made me feel, I belong here. I love the approach and this will be a valuable resource for anyone trying to grow their audience. I know it has us rethinking our approach and connecting more with our audience.

“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.”

“I have a high degree of trust with Naz and Leah, both personally and in their abilities to create breakthroughs with people. I gained a lot more confidence and a sense of purpose behind my recent venture into location independence. I loved just being part of the group interactions and experiencing transformations together.”

“Instead of holding onto fear and being paralyzed or overwhelmed, Naz and Leah, as well as the rest of the group held my hand, gave me great feedback and advice and cheered me on with every win I made. I also found that success begets success – the more I achieved, the more I was motivated to achieve more!”

“When I first met Naz and Leah, I was lost – searching for my life’s purpose and frozen by my lack of clarity. Naz and Leah can focus in on the one thing that you’re hesitant about and reframe your challenges as opportunities. Their holding me accountable and seeing my potential inspires me to reach for more.”

“The team at The Connection Effect have definitely turned my life around. At the time I met Naz and Leah, I was completely uncertain what I wanted in my life. I was full of fear. I wanted clarity. I wanted advice. They helped me discover things about myself I did not even know. I now have a constant sense of self belief. Having a community around me – changes everything. I know anything is possible for me now.”

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.”

“I trust Naz and Leah and what they offer to the world so when the offer came I simply said ‘I am there’. I didn’t need to know the details of what the retreat had to offer. The environment that was created by the participants and our gorgeous hosts with the assistance of nature and fabulous food. But most of all I feel free, unconstrained and chilled out.”

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.”

“After attending the Retreat and being part of the The Connection Effect Community I can now take action and achieve small goals on the way to achieving larger ones. For me it has always been a challenge to be open with people I don’t know. Thank you for creating an environment where that barrier was lowered.”

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.

“Shortly after working with Naz and Leah, I finally managed to launch my podcast. I can’t recommend highly enough the work Leah & Naz do. After years of struggling to get my business and podcast launched, my coaching with Leah & Naz helped me figure out what was stopping me. I’m slowly growing my podcast and enjoying it all!”
