Our Point of Difference

Tribe Market sets high curation standards to the application process for businesses trading on the platform offering trust, integrity and security for our fellow tribe members and customers to be sure products listed on the platform are sustainable with positive social outcomes.

Part of our differentiation for the TM platform is our focus on personalisation and intimate connections for our customers with the Tribe store owners (You!). To achieve a deeper connection with our customer base we will be producing a podcast series on each store owner to get an understanding of your Why, your Story and your Passions.

Social Impact

A portion of profits from Tribe Market sales are directed to our support group Spin Tribe. ST offers the community a space to connect, discuss and grow in the fields of wellness, personal development, mindset, consciousness, community and with business growth. This is part of our social impact to have lasting positive change on how we as humans relate to each other and all life.

Our Purpose and ‘Why’

Purpose:

Provide a marketplace for Sunshine Coast and greater Queensland micro-businesses producing products focused on positive Wellness, Environmental and/or Social outcomes within the community. #ProfitForPurpose

Tribe Market offers a platform where conscious businesses meet sustainability aware consumers… everyone benefits, including the Earth!

My ‘Why’:

When we realise some of the essential resources on this planet we call home are finite, and being consumers of these resources as goods and services, we understand the need to tread carefully and pay much more respect to how the products we purchase effect the local and global environment along with the social/wellbeing of its people. We come to a point of realisation and truth, ‘A shift in consciousness and perception is needed, we must make a stand and stop allowing corporate profits to dictate our reality’. We must take back control and regain our organic nature and self-empowerment within the community, within our Tribe.

I created Tribe Market to showcase QLD entrepreneurs and businesses providing benefit to our communities’ health and wellbeing, in turn releasing the over-reliance on international corporations and their governmental companionship. It’s a way to bring conscious businesses together to promote and share their products for purpose on one platform direct to conscious consumers. Directing dollars to effect positive change.

To further community engagement, reduce over consumption and minimise waste, I also created a sharing platform called Freeomy – the Freedom Economy. Freeomy provides an online platform for members to freely pool and share resources via Gifting, Swapping/Loaning or Exchanging (using points) to fully embrace the circular economy and build strong community integration of items and members.

Enhancing the online platforms is our face2face gatherings, called Spin Tribe where we come together fortnightly to share, learn and inspire, building trust, collaborations and friendships.

This is my way (along with the wellness products and services I created and offered over the past 15 years) of doing my part in making Earth a better, more harmonious place to live and thrive.
