My Business Model (it may help you)

my-business-model

I’ve received messages, ahas and comments from the ladies present at The Creative Heroine Experience all week and notes like this one today only continue to confirm that there’s plenty of room for the generosity model in our lives and businesses.

That’s a big part of the reason I created the totally FREE CHE and the Greater Good Parties (I’ll be in SF and NYC in May for GGPs. Psst, if you’d like to be invited, let me know) ~> I created them (and more) to show that generosity (and doing things differently than the online marketing world, for example) is not only possible but necessary so that flow is reinstated in one’s life.

When you have a vision (a feeling and an energy!) around what you know is not only doable but necessary, there are many, many others feeling the same way who will be grateful you followed the spark and your creative flow on it.

Follow that kind of “crazy”. Your business will still make money, I promise. You will impact more people. I know it. You will feel a new sense of purpose and joy. You better believe it. 🙂 

Generosity puts the humanity back into our human work…because at the end of the day, we are in the people business.

Stay out of fear and inside possibility. That’s what CHE was all about and what YOU as a woman who moves from problem to solution, is all about. 

Thank you, Creative Heroine Experience for being an idea that came through me, but wasn’t mine, and, instead, was created by everyone present in the room that day.

How will you allow yourself to give (and receive) today?

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Scared? (check out this “flip” of the word)

Scared is one letter away from sacred because that’s how close you are from moving through the fear to something that’s meant for you.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life.

What Your Business Idols Do

what-your-business-idols-do

To change something in your relationship, you can’t (only) continue to look inside your relationship — though it IS, most times, powerful enough to heal itself.

To change something in your body, you can’t (only) continue to look inside the body — though it is, most times, powerful enough to heal itself.

To change your mind or mindset, you can’t (only) continue to look inside that same mind — though it IS powerful enough to help itself.

It’s the same in business. You can’t continue to look inside that same business or inside that same industry for the salve.

You need perspective and insight from slightly unexpected sources, namely people and insight from different industries and how they solve problems or filter things to come out the other end with something stunning, meaningful, different and maybe even magical (most people you look up to have done this and keep doing this).

Look to the fashion industry or tech if you’re in graphic design.

Allow yourself to be inspired by the culinary field if you’re a writer.

Read up on biographies of those who have made it big in hospitality if you’re a consultant, psychologist or coach.

Look to the way things were done in the 1900s…go old school…

And ~ look outside the physical body to the mental and emotional bodies for guidance. To the spiritual body for support with mental blocks. To the way couples on a ballet stage support each other in creating beauty and something memorable and inspiring for insight into creating similar in your love life.

Especially if you’re in a throw your hands up in the air moment, phase or season, why not get a little crazy and more artistically curious about how to solve or surrender to it?

At the very least, you’ll enjoy the play present in this process to the point where your energy starts to change or evolve (*you* start to change and evolve) and that, in and of itself, betters things.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life! 

Life is good,
