Sharon, this may sound silly but I want to start a gourmet hot dog shop with healthy hot dogs! It makes me so excited to think about people gathering my shop and having one of my favorite things to eat without the guilt.
I love your message about being a spiritual entrepreneur but do I have to have a spiritual kind of product or service to get guidance from my higher power on this business? I know there are a lot of people that are doing things that would seem more "spiritual".
What a great question! I have coached spiritualprenuers as I call them in all kinds of businesses: automotive repair shop owners, dentist, plastic surgeons, exterminators, financial planners and restaurants of all kinds. Over 250 industries as a matter of fact!
It is not about the specific product or service it is about YOUR intention to ALLOW a real partnership with your higher guidance, (call that God, Spirit, Source whatever you want to call it) IN your business.
It is about coming from a place of serving in your business and holding the intention that your business be part of the tapestry of transformation for the highest good of all concerned. The challenges I hear a lot from spiritualpreners is two fold:
- How do I move past the fears and doubts to really be able to be successful?
- What do I focus on at an outer level. This really depends based on if you are just staring your spiritual business or wanting to take this to a bigger level.
Since you are just starting this is a great time to start the business with a formal partnership to Spirit or whatever you call your higher power. I suggest you write a letter asking that higher power to be your partner in this business. Then write down all your fears and worries and ask that higher power to support you. Then date and sign this partnership agreement. You will be amazed at what happens.
