5 Ways I’ve Benefited From Joining The DC – A Community of Smart Online Entrepreneurs
One of the sure ways to find inspiration, support and growth in both personal and business development is by surrounding ourselves with a group of likeminded, successful individuals.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ― Jim Rohn
In 2014 I decided to surround myself with people who would help grow my business development by joining the Dynamite Circle (DC). Not only has it given me access to a community of likeminded people, but it has also been nothing short of life changing.
What is The Dynamite Circle?
The Dynamite Circle is a private community for entrepreneurs – most members are location independent. From monthly meet ups/networking events and private forums to an annual conference held in Bangkok called DCBKK, the community encourages you to connect with likeminded entrepreneurs to help you move forward with your business.

Here are some of the benefits I have received after joining the DC
Joining a premium private community like the DC is only the start. The amount of value you can get from a community like this depends on how much you are willing to invest by getting involved. Here are some of the benefits I have received from getting involved with the DC.
1. Breaking The Isolation
As a self-employed online entrepreneur it’s easy to just stay home and work in isolation. For six years I worked from home or from coffee shops by myself, focusing on my own brands and my clients projects. This left me feeling lonely and disconnected. Joining the DC gave me access to a thriving community of likeminded entrepreneurs from all over the world that I can now reach out to and connect with.
2. Attending DC Juntos
The DC encourages its members to host and attend monthly meet ups called Juntos in whichever city they are in.
Definition: The Junto was a club for mutual improvement established in 1727 by Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia. Also known as the Leather Apron Club, its purpose was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural philosophy, and to exchange knowledge of business affairs. – Wikipedia.org
Together with Paul Kortman from Nomad Together, I co-hosted the first Junto in Cape Town. Even though it was small I got to meet Dan Tržil and Jeff Pecaro from Nurtur Letters. Since then I have also attended Juntos in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, where I have met more DC members, made new friends and enjoyed many interesting and useful conversations.
3. Attending the DCBKK Conference
In October 2014 I attended my first DCBKK conference in Bangkok which was my first major conference experience. The four day event included keynote presentations, networking events and parties. The organisers did a great job of creating an environment that was comfortable yet professional, and assembled a panel of speakers that were extremely informative and valuable. I also opted to join the Mastermind session, which ran over an entire day. The group I was allocated to was made up of some well known and highly successful members that provided me with some great feedback regarding my current business situation.
4. Reading & Interacting in the Online Forum
As a private online membership site, the DC also offers its members access to an exclusive forum that is packed full of valuable questions, answers and advice. It’s a very active forum with many members regularly posting new content. Whatever your question might be, it’s very likely that it has already been discussed in the forum. You can also post a new topic or question and ask for feedback.
5. Meeting Individual Members
Over the past few months I’ve also taken advantage of reaching out to individual DC members to set up one-on-one in person meetings or online calls. I’ve made some great new connections and friends that I can reach out to if I need help or advice. And I’m also here to offer them the same.
