Why We Need to Be The Connected

What if, regardless of our religious, cultural, and political beliefs, we had that one single thing in common that connects us? And, if we did have that connection, we could use that as a starting block to find other things we have in common and, by doing so, realize we’re not that different after all?

That's the raison d'etre behind my new project, Be The Connected. We’re feeling more alone than ever—despite the promise of social media to connect us. We want to feel more connected to others; to rediscover the joy of the internet.

That's where Be The Connected comes in. Through the exploration of common ground with others, and finding value in our differences, there will be conversations and articles discussing what truly matters to us, without any political or religious interference.

The world doesn’t need to be as divided as it is. We don’t need to be as divided as we are. We can be so much more than the sum of our “differences”. When it comes to connection, changing mindsets, and being a positive influence on the world, we’re the decision-makers. Let’s not waste that privilege.

Topics on the menu include:

  • Why I started Be the Connected
  • How we can use the project to change the world and ourselves
  • What to expect from Be the Connected
  • How you can be part of it

Settle back for a discussion about making a positive, lasting impact on this planet, and how we can use a simple connection to not only change the world, but change the perception of those in it.
