The Power of Many!

The Power (4)

I was recently at a full day mastermind with over 40 other business owners and entrepreneurs.

The theme…collaboration not competition.

Many times we feel like we have to do everything on our own.  What I have learned about that business strategy is that it’s lonely. We’re not always our best advisor or mentor and it’s way more fun to to brainstorm with other like minded people.

Are you in collaboration, (super conductor style), with your business community?  If not, what can you do to get there?

Need ideas?  Please feel free to reach out to me.

In Gratitude,

Johanna

Why can’t I blame you?

Oooooh I so want to! This would get me off the hook for taking personal responsibility for my life. What can I get from this strategy? Will I be courageous? Will I grow and stretch beyond my wildest dreams? Will I become the person I want to be? Will I respect myself and others? IContinue Reading

The Yoga of Non-Stealing in Business

In Sanskrit the word for Non-Stealing is Asteya. The obvious is not taking what does not belong to us and we often think of our possessions but I would like to broaden that as we think of how we conduct ourselves in our business relationships.  One of the areas that we need to be mindfulContinue Reading

The Yoga of Truthfullness in Business

The Yama’s are the first limb of the 8 limbs of yoga as presented by Patanjali.  Last week we talked about the first of the Yama’s, Ahimsa (non-harming) and how our thoughts, actions or words can literally kill someone’s or even your dreams and ideas.  The second of the Yama’s, Satya, is coming from aContinue Reading

The Yoga of Non-Harming in Business

Practicing the ancient principle or yama of ahimsa (non harming) in business can transform your organization (even if it’s an organization of one).  If someone has a idea, even if YOU don’t think it will work, come from a place of inquiry…how about saying “that’s interesting tell me more” instead of “that will never work”.Continue Reading

Creating Abundance

I have been enjoying Deepak Chopra’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge. Today was day 9 and after completing the meditation and reflecting on how to bring Abundance into our lives I came to the simple conclusion that we must…   Give with no strings attached. Receive with Grace. Be Generous.                Be Gracious.                Experience Abundance.

Core Values

Yesterday, in my live tele-training, we had an in-depth discussion about the importance of having Core Values clearly defined as part of your business success model.  Why?  Core Values are your foundation, your guiding principles.  They are what keeps your business together in good times and bad.  Your Core Values represent your highest priorities and deeplyContinue Reading

Are You Excited?

I woke up this morning excited about what was possible for me today and it got me wondering…are you excited too? Do you realize that what you do and what you offer NO ONE ELSE DOES?  You are uniquely YOU and people come to rely on you for that.  Now that’s exciting! Show your enthusiasmContinue Reading
