Belong: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life
With Bossbabes ATX
How is it that the internet connects us to a world of people, yet so many of us feel more isolated than ever? That we have hundreds, even thousands of friends on social media, but not a single person to truly confide in? Radha Agrawal calls this “community confusion,” and in Belong she offers every reader a blueprint to find their people and build and nurture community, because connectedness—as more and more studies show—is our key to happiness, fulfillment, and success.
A book that’s equal parts inspiring and interactive, and packed with prompts, charts, quizzes, and full-color illustrations, Belong takes readers on a two-part journey. Part one is Going IN—a gentle but intentional process of self-discovery and finding out your true energy levels and VIA (values, interests, and abilities). Part two is Going OUT—building on all that you’ve learned about yourself to find those few special people who feed your soul, and discovering, or creating, the ever-widening groups that align with your aims and desires.
As the Co-founder and CEO of the popular global morning dance community Daybreaker, Radha Agrawal developed an immense offline community with her team of Community Catalysts in 25 cities and on a dozen college campuses around the world by creating a physical space for people to connect, self-express, sweat, and dance. Now, Radha offers the life-changing strategies, tips, and tricks for making friends that will light your fire and give you the exhale of “Ahh, I’m home.”
ABOUT RADHA AGRAWAL
A successful social entrepreneur, impact investor, inventor, speaker, and lifelong community builder, Radha Agrawal founded Daybreaker, the grassroots, sober early-morning dance phenomenon. What began in 2013 as a social experiment with her friend has grown into a bona fide dance movement with events in 23 cities across North America, Europe, and Asia and over 350,000 loyal community members and is growing rapidly. Daybreaker has inspired lifelong friendships, surprise engagements, and transformational experiences for community members. It has been described as "the Studio 54 for millennials" and "the future of nightlife." Daybreaker has expanded its offerings into a full lifestyle brand including a content channel and apparel line, and is going further to include a food and beverage line and fitness studios. It has been featured in thousands of publications including the New York Times, The Washington Post, Good Morning America, GQ, and SNL, among others, with over a billion social media impressions.
