Norby Community Newsletter – No. 25

Norby Community Newsletter – No. 25

Hey Norby Community,

We can hardly believe it – but as of next month, Norby is officially one year old 🎉 and on top of that we’ve arrived our 25th Community Newsletter! Which makes it all the more exciting and thrilling to announce Creators Who Share, our new education series led by creators, for creators. We're tapping creators from our community to pull back the curtain on tricks of the trade, demystify in-demand skills, and share their expertise with you. Our goal is to share knowledge and provide our community with professional development resources – and champion the incredible creators, brands, and communities among us.

We're kicking off Season 1 this month with two amazing creators: Jesse Israel, a social entrepreneur and meditation leader known for founding the mass meditation movement The Big Quiet; and Vanessa Newman, a DJ/Producer, creative strategist and Head of Product at Somewhere Good.


👉 Our first #CreatorsWhoShare event is HERE! 👈

We're kicking off next week on October 20th with DON'T FORGET TO BLESS UP from JESSE ISRAEL!

From Jesse: "Mental health is wealth y’all. Learn how to return to your inner treasury of wisdom, creativity, and infinite possibility through simple practices – like turning off your phone notifications, checking in on the people you love & finding stillness anywhere."

RSVP for Jesse's event →

(P.S. Did we mention all the Creators Who Share events are FREE.99?)
