Google+ communities are a great way to connect with people that share similar interests to you. I belong to groups on local business, social media and leadership. Find groups that can help you with personal and professional pursuits.
I've also created two communities if you have an interest:
Body, Mind & Spirit: Reawaken Your Brilliance and
Holistic Organizing: Healing through Organization
They are both open to the public! Come learn and/or share your knowledge.
