Originally from Mississippi, Dea Irby has lived in 5 Southern states, in 15+ different homes serving churches with her pastor-husband, owning and operating a tea room, and now being a REALTOR in North Carolina. The common thread throughout her life is building real community wherever she has lived: in the home with 8 children, in their churches, and in her businesses. She knows the value of belonging and understands people need to be CLAIMed-Chosen, Loved, Acknowledged, Invested In, and Made for Greatness. Dea is a published author and speaker: A Connector, Adventurer, and Catalyst. She is on a mission to help leaders know how to CLAIM their people.
Dea will be a featured TEDx speaker for October in VA!!!! Contributing author for Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Forgiveness Fix, coming out in November. And she is also a teacher on Skillshare. Find her course at https://skl.sh/2TQWQQJ .
On this month’s show I talked to Dea Irby about how to CLAIM community and make it more genuine. How food is related to building a relationship and a ton of other interesting topics.
