In my years as an Architect, I supervised the construction of many different buildings. I built many single family homes and a few multi-story ones. Some were conventional, and my favorite ones were eco-friendly and sustainable.
But no matter how different they were from each other, they had something in common: all of them were built upon a solid foundation.
I’m sure you get why it’s important to build a house on solid ground. Common sense -and a ton of regulations- made me pay attention to the quality of the foundations underneath those buildings.
But when it comes to building a business, many of us seem to have lost our common sense, and we create the business Continue reading →
You want to do what you love. I’ve talked a lot in this blog about how to find that thing you’d love to do. That’s the easy part. (and if you’re still struggling with that, make sure to grab my Career Clarity Cards, my gift to you)
However, there is a second part to the story. Yes, the story that goes: “Do what you love and money will follow” I’m sure you’ve heard of it.
The thing is… for most of us, it didn’t work like that.
Isn’t it time I share a bit about what it really takes to get paid for your passions?
Because it’s kind of a dirty little secret no one wants to talk about. Continue reading →
There is an interesting fact about elderly people.
If you ask them what knowledge they’d love to pass onto younger generations, most of them would say some version of:
“Life is short. So find something you really care about, and focus wholeheartedly on it.”
“Spend more time with the people you love, and don’t take disagreements with them too seriously.” Or…
”Love is all that matters, so find something you love doing and be with those you love”
Maybe that is the best possible definition of life purpose: To do what you love and be with those you love.
And yet, most of us want to find a purpose that is much more specific than that: Continue reading →
Have you ever asked yourself what makes a Purpose-based business different from a conventional one?
You could think that just because you know your purpose, and are putting it at the fore front of what you do, that would be enough to guarantee your success; as if some Cosmic Force would protect you and grant you your wish of making a living doing what you love.
I’m not saying “don’t believe in Spirit” (because I personally do) and I love being guided along the way in my business path. All that I’m saying is that apart from Continue reading →
Coaches are known for asking a lot of questions. I’m curious by nature, you see, so it only made sense that I ended up becoming one.
Questions are valuable, but only if you ask the right ones.
For example, from all the telesummits I’ve listened to along the years, one has really stood up among all. And the reason was that they kept asking the same powerful questions to all the participants. It was great, and finally gave me a wonderful global understanding of the topic.
So when Nina Lenton shared this “chain of questions” blog post challenge, it got me interested right away.
And you know what? If you are not able to answer these questions for your own business (or soon to be business) it means Continue reading →
When you are starting a business, (or trying to take it off the ground) you are busy.
So many things to do…
so many things to learn…
and not enough time to do them all.
Your never-ending list of activities (if you are prone to making lists) will probably be something like this:
Writing blog post, posting on social media, designing you business logo, choosing the right theme for your WP site, getting some business cards, looking for images online, doubting about your domain name (“Should I change this one?”), creating your products…
If you are kind of overwhelmed with all the things you have to do to start your business or take it off the ground, let me tell you a secret:
There are many, many coaches, healers, therapists and other conscious professionals doing exactly the same things that you do (or want to do).
That’s one of the realities of running a business is today.
Maybe you have never openly asked the question:“Why would anyone choose to work with me?”, but the tightness you feel in the pit of your stomach whenever you see the so called “competition” out there, is a clear sign that this question is very present in your mind.
So it’s very important to stand out and be different from others, right?
Today I’m going to share with you one of the most amazing tools to find your uniqueness, both in Continue reading →
