Happy Friday ~ Fri-YAY!
As I write this note to you, I’m excited to share my new Facebook Group called Profit Mindset with Janet. I’ll link it here. I learned so many years ago,
“Don’t make a Facebook group. They’re too much work!”
And I stuck with that belief, but suddenly it feels like everyone has a Facebook Group. I wanted to make mine stand out, so I’m sending each person three gifts via email for all members. Rather than thinking groups are dead, obsolete, or just a waste of time, I’m spinning that belief. This group will help me connect with more people outside of my local area. If we click, great! If not, that’s OK too!
This week was a big week for me ~ outing myself. I’ve always had trouble in my business communicating what I do for people. Because some people are corporate/professional contacts, I tend to lead with the MBA-Brain side. But honestly, I’m all about spirituality. I hid this part of me for a very long time, even though it’s the cornerstone of my identity. It will never change.
I firmly believe that entrepreneurs need to use what they have available to make their business a success. That includes the spiritual side! If a person is really into honoring moon rituals, for example, I say go for it. You’re no less of a business owner for doing that. AND it doesn’t take away from your ability to run a successful, highly profitable business. Instead, honoring your spiritual beliefs enhances success! I think that spiritual entrepreneurs get a bad rap, but that’s not fair. At least they’re aligned and authentic to who they are.
How about you? Do you ever find yourself hiding a part of yourself just to conform to other people’s expectations?
