Looking for an online space brimming with your new biz besties?
This is the online biz community you've been searching for.
If you’re a biz owner with big feelings, mild social anxiety*, and a whole lotta enthusiasm…
*note: social anxiety not required*
It’s entirely likely in your search for online camaraderie you have:
- already joined a group or two in hopes of finding an online home.
- Maybe invested in a mastermind or two.
- Tried to gather your own group of accounabilibuddies for regular coworking.
None of it turned into a lasting community.
(cuz it wasn’t built to!)
Hard truth: Running an online biz is kinda lonely.
Even if you’re totally booked out with dream clients, your products are flying off the online-shelves, and you’re networking like a badass, finding a community where you can relax and show up as your whole self isn’t as available as we need it to be.
Let's get honest:
Work/life balance is a myth.
But you probably already knew that, you smart cookie. And lemme tell you: having a cheer section, support system, and feedback forum sure makes it easier as you ebb and flow between the personal and the professional.
You’re not ‘missing’ anything.
You already have all the pieces - you don’t need another mastermind, you don’t need another free challenge, and you most certainly do not need another course. You just need to implement those things and start taking consistent action on your goals.
We all respond to expectations differently - making many traditional accountability groups ineffective.
Heard of Gretchen Rubin’s 4 Tendencies? It’s indispensable for understanding how we respond to inner and outer expectations (and how to work WITH our tendency rather than against it!). Any accountability space that doesn’t understand these different tendencies is going to be a big swing-and-a-miss for most folks who aren’t the same type as the leader.
Free online FB groups aren’t built to be a forum for community.
They can be super useful, but they don’t readily foster community because they’re typically built to drive leads and answer basic questions (hellooooo market research). Pillars of community - connection, two-way support, perspective, exchange of ideas - aren’t the same pillars of a free FB group.
Get Me Out Of This Job
Human first, biz second is the ESSENCE of The Connection Collective. I can show up, feel my feelings around business, and feel supported simply by being seen and heard.
Marina Crouse Writes
The Connection Collective is the community I’d been searching for: this group of awesome humans helps me build my business the way I want it, away from the traditional 9-5 where there is only one way to do things and feelings were not allowed. The emotional support alone has paid for the membership fee in spades, not to mention the support for all things business as I set up my dream business.
Commune to Create
In this space I’m nurtured for who I am as a human and as someone trying to build a business from the ground up. This community has given me that AND MORE. It’s been the best gift I’ve given myself this past year.
The Connection Collective™
Not Another Mastermind.
We’re all about that Human First, Biz Second® approach: running an online business in ways that make sense to you and your brain, honoring the human in the audience and the human behind the biz alike.
No plug and play templates here, no sales formulas, no square peg round hole consternation, and absolutely no “hey hey hey now, that’s not business related, please don’t bring it up in the comments” (unless it’s some unsanctioned self-promotion in which case, we need to talk).
The Connection Collective™ is the online membership for intentional entrepreneurs seeking camaraderie, community, and connection.
Here’s what’s on the inside:
MONTHLY HUMAN FIRST WORKSHOPS
MONTHLY HOT SEAT COACHING
MONTHLY HAPPY HOUR
AIRTABLE & NOTION TEMPLATE LIBRARY
OH HEY THERE - I'M MEGAN!
I’m the facilitator of this magnificent group of humans.
I’m a classically-trained actress turned story strategist, helping entrepreneurs build better businesses and communities through connection. I love a good story and I thrive helping others create online spaces rooted in shared values.
The Connection Collective™ is designed with neurodiverse, spoonie, and gender-expansive* biz owners in mind.
Not all content is created the same, and online course models have become a bit cookie-cutter in their pedagogy and approach to working with business owners.
Here, curriculum and community are designed for, though not exclusive to, neurodiverse humans like yourself.
No draconian methodologies, no mandatory calls, no one right way to participate.
The most important thing here is coming together in community to celebrate the myriad of ways we run our businesses and tend to ourselves in the process.
Your online support system should honor the way *your* brain works.
*expansive genders refers to any expression of gender that has been discriminated against, alternately described as marginalized genders.*

The Self-Care Enthusiast
What shocked me so much about TCC was when I got into a group of completely supportive humans who let me focus on myself and also encouraged me to do what I needed to do for myself, it made my business better. That’s the magic of TCC. When you’re fully supported and surrounded by diverse, magical biz people, it makes your business better.
There is a love and a space within this community that has really helped me embrace where I am in my life and my business (no easy feat!). Just knowing I have this community here to tap into is so helpful.
The Darling Revolution
So many memberships are either super-touchy-feely, but no biz side OR nothing but business with no room for the life stuff. TCC has been a safe space to tether into hope and community, full of amazing humans who not only exemplify Human First, Biz Second but are also doing incredible things to uplevel their businesses. It’s just the best group of humans.
This is for you if...
You’re enthusiastic af about your work and sick of your cheering section of one (...you, it’s just you).
You’ve already done a mastermind or two and while you don't need another curriculum, you want the intimacy of community without the price tag of a program.
You love supporting your friends and are ready to engage with other badasses in a wide variety of industries and niches.
This is for not you if...
You’re looking for a follow-for-follow style group - while you may find yourself with a whole new gang of followers, there is no expectation of following fellow members on social media or interacting with posts.
You’re looking for a specific launch strategy, social media plan, or framework-driven course materials. This isn’t a course or program. It’s a community.
You are looking for a highly niched problem-solving cohort.
