Tap Into Your Inner Business Wisdom

As a holistic entrepreneur, you know how important it is to listen to your heart. You wouldn’t be in business if you hadn’t taken the leap to listen to your heart and follow your dreams.

But I’ve noticed a funny thing happens to wellness professionals and holistic practitioners after they’ve been in business for awhile.

You forget how to listen to your heart!

I know, how sad.

Something strange happens to holistic entrepreneurs sometimes….

Once you go into business for yourself, you suddenly find yourself wearing many hats. You’re not just a practitioner or a coach, you’re also Owner, CEO, Decision-Maker and most likely when you start out your also Bookkeeper, Scheduler, Client Followup, Web Editor, Head of Marketing….the list goes on and on.

And all of this “role playing” can become exhausting. So exhausting that you don’t feel that passion anymore for your business. Or you feel discouraged and confused. Or even if you still have hope, you’re not sure which way to go to change your current state of affairs. And let’s face it, it’s sometimes hard to listen to your heart on what you should do next when you feel tired, worn-out, alone or frustrated.

I know that every holistic entrepreneur has the power to re-ignite their passion by tapping into what I call Inner Business Wisdom.

Be 100% Confident

I define Inner Business Wisdom as being able to stop at any moment during your day to check in with yourself and your business and find out if you are headed in the right direction. It’s a habit that you start to practice so that you can feel 100% confident about everyday business decisions and big business decisions, too.

Allow your Inner Business Wisdom to guide you to:

  1. Make decisions about what to focus on each day
  2. Take a step back from your busy work and make sure you are leading your business where you want it to go
  3. Ask yourself any business question and know the right answer (because you’re so clear about your business and your direction)
  4. Know when you don’t know the answer and need support (we all need mentors to show us the way)
  5. Trust big decisions that you want to make to grow, even if your “head” is trying to talk you out of it

Here’s the thing: You already have Inner Business Wisdom…even if you don’t consider yourself a business expert. I know this because I coach my clients weekly on tapping into what feels right for them as they build their business. Sure, you have to use proven business tools and have someone to guide you to implement them, but as soon as you realize you can trust that inner “Yes!”, then you move gracefully forward everyday in creating the business of your dreams.

I also know this experience firsthand because I made a decision several years ago to “Go For It” and listen to my Inner Business Wisdom. It meant not playing small, not surrounding myself with people who didn’t get it and committing to my Big Vision no matter what.

Remember, as an entrepreneur, you have something very special at your fingertips: A literal pen in your hand to write your own story. Writing it how you want it to go means following your heart everyday and committing to your own big vision. Tapping into your Inner Business Wisdom will guide you in this process.

Keep in mind, following your heart means taking leaps into the unknown sometimes (or even daily if you’re on the fast track to a thriving business!) because your head might be saying “How?!”. You have to come back to your Inner Business Wisdom which is telling you to Trust and Grow to the next level.

If you’re struggling to trust your Inner Business Wisdom, then check in with yourself on the following:

  • Ask yourself if you are truly open to the possibilities in your business and your life – Are you committed to the dream you have for your holistic business?
  • Check in with who you surrounded yourself with, including people, things, and energy (even television) – Are they examples of how you want your life and business to be?
  • Do you have mentors and models around you who are committed to big visions and if not, where can you find some?
  • Are you caught up in the day-to-day stressors of your business rather than working toward something greater?
  • Do you have team members to support you so you can focus on taking steps forward toward your bigger goals?

Checking in with yourself will tell you if you are on the track to developing your Inner Business Wisdom.
