Business Yoga™ or Business Yoga-ahhh and what two uber successful women had to say about it.

I interviewed a few very successful entrepreneurs last month. I asked them how (and if) they practiced “Business Yoga™”? I’ll tell you about two of them here.

Jen Sincero, best-selling author and fantabulous writing coach I’m working with on the how to be a Walking Momtra™ book said that she practices business yoga all the time in her business…

I use business yoga™ constantly in my work, especially the breathing.  When working with clients and feeling into what would be best for them, it’s often helpful to shut down the intellect and breath into it – I do it myself as well as encourage them to do it.  It’s led to incredible insights and results.” (to check out Jen’s awesome and inspiring blog, check out Jen Sincero).

I agree with Jen and do believe shutting down the intellect is so important. As business owners, parents, friends etc intellectualizing can truly get in the way of what is the right way/path/decision for us.

How could you tune in best to your vision for your best life? If it’s not breathing as Jen shares above, how or what could you do more of and inch closer to what feels totally right for you?

Gina DeVee, seven-figure success coach and my mentor, had this to say about Business Yoga™: To me, Business yoga™ is making sure that I am doing what I am passionate about, not just what I CAN do.” (sing it again, sister! To check out more of Gina’s awesomeness, visit Gina DeVee)

In short, as shown in these two responses, Business Yoga™ is about feeding our internal health and wealth so we are more able to then grow our outer, entrepreneurial wealth. We can have both and these two ladies are just two examples of the possibility.

And that’s what we’re about at MGI, helping you create a more attractive, productive and thriving business so you can have a more attractive, productive and thriving life.

NEW opportunity: half and full day intensives. Holiday pricing!

I had a phone call with Germany!

And you know what happened?

I have a new client.

AND you know what else happened?

I realized YOU too might need support but NOT be at a place to start working on your branding and logo (which is the only program I’ve been communicating lately). Or, you might have your branding/voice/essence nailed down already…

I recommended either a HALF or FULL-day intensive to help her 1) create the details behind her first program, 2) create a clear marketing plan for it 3) and discuss specific ways to create blogging and video-opportunities to educate her German audience on the benefits of life coaching.

We were elated about this size “container” because it was in alignment with these pressing short-term goals.

What are your current goals and could this be something you need to receive as well?
If so, below is MGI’s holiday pricing.

 

HALF-DAY (four hours LIVE or via skype/phone) INTENSIVES ~ $750 (normally 1250)

FULL-DAY INTENSIVES (eight hours LIVE or via skype/phone) ~ $2000 (normally 2500)

These blocks of time can be done all at once to maximize creative energy or broken out, inquire within.

This is for you if…

• You need specifics on how to market a particular program.
• You need some major practical inspiration before the end of 2011 to bring in more business (creative ideas and how-to’s)!
• You need help attracting more fans to your facebook page (we can create three ads for you to run…they work!)
• You need help taking a seed of a business idea to a business idea that is ALIVE and KICKING not to mention super CREATIVE and UNIQUE. MGI is an idea generator!
• You need practical inspiration heading into 2012 to come out with a fresh, on-brand program.

• You need help creating programs or packages that are “on-brand”.
• You need help with your tagline.
• You need help with your business name.
• You need help with how-to create your own impactful, “on-brand” and well-designed newsletters, blogs, solo mailers and sales pages.
• …whatever business, marketing, branding or design need in YOUR situation and YOUR business…let me know.

Here’s what clients had to say…

• MGI takes an amazing hands-on approach of working with each client from a fresh perspective. Michelle’s intuitiveness to understand and read between the lines of what each client is looking to create is the absolute key to her success in creating one-of-a-kind projects…Tamara, Blue Eye Boy, PORTLAND

• I‘m VERY happy with the results we achieved in just 3 hours ~ I’ve got my elevator speech done, editorial calendar, two fun ads, and a welcome banner for my facebook page, ideas for the content & headline of my website and newsletter. And; the whole process was…fun! Kristina, Lifestyle and Health Coach, LOS ANGELES

YOUR needs are my goals/deliverables…Happy holidays!

p.s. The year is not over yet. And neither are your opportunities.

Giving Back, a Down-dog & how your business can give back too.

I’ll begin teaching yoga philosophy and movement to teenage girls from Santa Ana after Thanksgiving and nothing could make me happier. I liken this to those dream business opportunities where you love the client and project as much as they need and love you!

I truly believe I need them (the learning they’ll impart) as much as they might “need” what I have to teach them. Knowing me it’ll be a lot of laughing and taking ourselves way less seriously than we normally allow ourselves during school and work hours. The love, learning and lessons will be cheekily woven throughout.

I understand and hear many of us WANTING so badly to give back yet not having time (or not feeling like we have the time) to research the who/where/how.  Here’s where to start. While sitting in front of your fire the next couple days or before bed during this next important holiday, think…

If you were to strip it all away, what are you about? What moves you?

What things do you love to do?

What could you easily teach?

What is your business about? How could you use these strengths to give of your time or resources, if even once a month?

1) Create a short list (3-5) charities that fit your company or your values. If you’re doing this for your business, think of the charity aligning with your business goals and company mission. It’s easier than you think. At its core, MGI is about empowering women and girls to do what they really want in life so it was a natural fit for me to want to work with teenage girls heading to college. It was also natural I teach them yoga as I’m certified and currently writing a book about yoga philosophy…

2) Ask the charity the following questions: how will donations be spent for the upcoming year? If you can give of your time ask about their schedules and just how you can give if even an hour or two each month. It’s seriously that easy. One hour. Once a month. Ask them what their mission is (if it isn’t already clear). Your values should and can compliment each other and have a shared purpose.

3) Ask your employees what they think. There’s nothing better than to get your employees in on the decision-making. A few heads on this stuff is always better than one. Plus, you’ll ensure success.

4) Make a decision, take a load off and give back. You won’t believe how empowered those you’ve helped will feel (they’ll tell you) but how empowered YOU will feel each and every time you leave. Again, we think people need us when in reality we need this kind of receiving as well. Talk about an even energy exchange…

Start today and continue giving through 2012. What if your life and the life of others depended on your heart opening in this way??

MGI is currently giving 10% to a women’s or children’s charity of your choice. If you’re in need of your true brand identity and a logo that cuts through the clutter, check out the details before November 25th: http://www.michelleghilotti.com/startherup.html

Life is good.
