For the Love AND Money: no need to choose!
Are you one of the passionate, heart-centered entrepreneurs, who is looking for new ways to run your business more profitably, but also feel in complete integrity with what you do?
I can totally relate. When I first started in my business almost two years ago, I was all about the love, and helping people find their passion in life, but had no idea how to translate that into a financial success.
What’s more, I had a notion that I had to choose between the love and the money. Well, today I’m here to tell you it’s not necessary to choose. In fact, one can fuel and compliment the other, hence the title: “For the Love AND Money: no need to choose!”.
I’ve trained as a business coach, because I wanted to transform my own relationship with money, first and foremost. It turns out I love the work so much that it’s become the main focus of my business now.
Today, I want to share 3 of my best tips on what to do to make your business a success, without losing your heart connection to what you do. It’s a great starting point AND, as we all know, there is so much more to it, as well. So, without further ado:
Examine your own ‘money story’. We all have one, but we’re mostly not aware of how it is negatively affecting our relationship with money today, and the ways we present ourselves in the world, especially through our business. You will need coaching to help you move beyond your story, so my suggestion is to hire the best mentor you can afford. As my mentor says, “how you do money, is how you do everything”, and I find this to be very true.
One truth that has become really apparent to me in the last couple of years is that money truly has power. By itself this power is neutral, and it can be used for good, as well as evil. This could be a huge motivating force for you, if making positive changes in the world is part of your ‘BIG WHY’, as it is mine. It becomes clear that it’s a lot easier to influence those changes if you have a substantial amount of money at your disposal. Not to mention that if your business doesn’t support you financially, then it’s just an expensive hobby, and sooner or later you’ll have to quit, and we don’t want that, do we?
Realize and appreciate the true value of your work and services to others. Again, you’re going to need coaching on this, as it’s pretty much impossible to see our own blind spots. This seems like such a ‘no brainer’, but from my experience, is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for most entrepreneurs, especially women. Until you truly and deeply see the impact you’re creating in the world, you’ll probably always feel like a fraud, and always hesitate to charge what you’re worth. The result? You’re depriving others of the gift you’re here to give, and not creating the impact you’re here to create. It’s time to change this!
I’ve really enjoyed sharing these tips with you today, and there is plenty more where they came from lol. I love talking about this, as I’m all about empowering entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs to translate ‘that thing they do’ into a successful business model. You love what you do, and you’re really good at it, right? Well, why not create the life you dream about, doing what you love, serving others, and making positive changes in the world, all at the same time?! Win, win, win…and win situation. After all, the very definition of business includes that fact that it has to make money, otherwise it’s just an expensive hobby, like I’ve already mentioned.
Alright, this is it for today. I’m wishing you a beautiful heart-felt and heart-filled day! I’d love to read your comments below.
With love and bliss,
This is Julia
