Richardson shares what to think about when you’re considering starting a community, the first things to do when you decided to go for it, common mistakes that are often made when starting out, a great example community to learn from, and more. 

For those just starting their community journey, Richardson introduces the idea of “scaled partnerships,” describing them as “where you create a little template that a lot of passionate people could grab and participate in for you because they have the energy to do it.” Not one to leave you hanging, she follows with a look into how to implement such a strategy.
