    Thanks for posting this video. It is one that I hadn’t yet seen.
    Don’t you just love Seth? Simple, succinct, and so very provocative. Always glad to find another Seth Godin fan.

    Seth Godin has done wonders for many. Hard to argue with anything I’ve heard from him. Interesting video. I’m definately a believer in tribes.

      Mike,

      Seth does make a lot of sense… and being a member of TSA really shows our faith in tribes, doesn’t it?

      Thanks,

    Seth has this phenomenal understanding of the way human psychology drives the market and the market can be crafted in a way that utilizes the human psychology for a deeper, longer, stronger more sustainable impact.

    His statement about an infinite number of tribes is true at a level that most will never grasp. Even within our Tribe Syndication Communites, and even within the large organizations that make up the One Tribe concept, we see “pockets” of small tribes, adhearing to and reminding us of the 150 number and the 5 number. Five people within our inner circle, and 150 within our primary tribe, and any organization growing over that showing a tendency to form rifts or internal tribes. It really is magical to watch “from the top down”.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Kimberly,

      You really seem to have a good understanding of tribes. And it’s cool how this all forms without any real organization… it’s almost like a law of nature.

      Thanks for your insights…

    Lesly,

    We sure find that people do want to belong to a community. Being able to connect with people who are like-minded and can share their interests is a cool thing.

    Thanks,

    Building a tribe is an extremely powerful marketing method, and leave it to Seth Godin to articulate this for us. A master marketer talking about a masterful marketing technique. Next year this time, I want to have my own tribe. Thanks so much for sharing.

      Angela,

      Yes, tribes are powerful. They also give people a sense of belonging and making a difference. Guess that is powerful!!

      Thanks,

    It’s interesting that no matter how highly evolved society becomes … it’s still human nature to gravitate to tribes of like minded people.

    Thanks for sharing Seth’s video,
    Susan

    Thank you so much for sharing Seth’s incredible communication skills and how marketing and social psychology is evolving.

    “The opportunity is that there is an infinite number of tribes and there is a dramatic shortage of leaders – the common factor is leadership”

    I hope that by creating Mastermind to Wealth I am able to help to create many more leaders. I agree this is what the world requires at this time of significant shifts.

    Hey there Pat and Lorna; I love how Seth Godin teaches and the thoughts he has on business and his great ability to know future trends and his understanding of growing tribes. You two are always on cue to what is cool and effective to grow business and have fun while doing it.

    It’s so true that building a tribe is an extremely powerful marketing method, and that’s why I’m so excited that we have TSA Mastery as our own powerful growing tribe with some of the best leaders in the industry as members.

    Thanks so much for this valuable post and video my cool friends

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very comfortable that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
