104 : What It Takes To Create A Revolution with Maruxa Murphy
What It Takes To Create A Revolution
Our guest on the podcast today is Maruxa Murphy MA, an award-winning community experience designer, strategist, and entrepreneur. She transforms communities in person and online to become movements that shape their industry. Her work in the travel, business, personal development, parenting, and coaching industries has shifted how communities can be designed from "the inside out."
Maruxa is a catalyst for change who leads national and international initiatives with a deep understanding of human behavior and has consulted for many thought leaders on how to design hybrid and face-to-face communities. She’s been featured in Forbes, Reader's Digest, Fox News, The Huffington Post, NBC, and The Austin-American Statesman for her work in creating profitable enterprises that do good in the world. Maruxa believes in empowering all individuals to live their fullest lives, and her work has been instrumental in bringing people together to create positive change. She is doing truly groundbreaking work helping to bring humanity back to virtual and hybrid community design and has even been brought into Facebook and the United Nations because of her work in growing, monetizing, and expanding impact-driven brands over the last 22 years.
In today’s conversation, Maruxa encourages us to cultivate our individual identity and strive to find the courage for revolutionary work that brings about positive change in the world. She outlines the various ways to become a positive force for change, from embracing risk and creativity in problem-solving to understanding the impact of our decisions, trusting our intuition, and having faith in our abilities. She stresses the importance of forming strong communities with a powerful vision and shared values. We discuss both revolutionary communities and what it takes to lead them, including courage, self-awareness, and the unique understanding of how to positively shift identities.
Listen in and discover how going slow and investing in a strong foundation rooted in intention, values, and vision is essential for setting up a successful revolutionary community. Additionally, it is important to nurture relationships and create safety rules, as well as emphasize human connection and trust in our intuitions and convictions. By understanding that we can create our own stories and reinvent ourselves, we can bring about real change and take advantage of the joy that life offers.
