My name is Lori Gosselin and I’m glad you’re here! Life, for instance is a gathering place where we come together to talk about life. I think of it as a porch where introspective people sit and relax and talk about the things that matter; the most important thing we all have in common, the thing we rush through so fast most days we forget to even think about it;

Life, for instance.


Many Hats

I’ve got a lot going on in my life.  In 2011 I published my first book, The Happy Place.  It’s available in all the Amazon stores.  If you read it, I’d love it if you’d write a review!

Spending time here connecting with other bloggers in the Heyday of the Blogosphere when blog hopping was an all day and evening activity, then taking the conversation offline to video meetings helped me to see what my friends have always recognized (seems I talk about community a lot) – I am a community builder.

In February of 2017, I published my second book, Sounding the Drum: Community Building in the Digital Age.

Now, after going back to school to get a Master of Organizational Management degree,  I’m starting a company to grow communities everywhere.  It’s called Kalliergo Consulting. More about that in a blog post soon!

I invite you to make a mug of tea or coffee and hop up on the porch to enjoy some good conversation and to learn a lot more about community building!
