4 Things a Soulful Business Owner Needs to Do to Be Seen

4 Things A Soulful Business Owner Needs to Do to Be Seen

When you’re a small, heart-centered business owner – a soul-o-preneur as Heather calls us – it’s absolutely vital to the success of your business that you get yourself out there and “get seen.”  This is what is behind the whole “you are your brand and your brand is you” idea. 
It is challenging since many of us tend to be tenderhearted, service-oriented, humble and full of integrity.  Marketing in the usual way is tough, so here are some do’s as you explore ways of being seen that work for you and your business.

So what’s a tenderhearted soul-o-preneur to do?

What Does It Mean to Pioneer a New Way of Doing Business?

I hear time and time again..."I don't like the way businesses are run. I want a new way of showing up in my business," or "I want my business to be different than what's out there." If this is you, here are my thoughts on pioneering this new way.

The 1 Thing Not to Ignore as a Female Soul-o-preneur

I had a blog post all ready to go, but then something happened that, quite frankly, needs to be talked about. It’s the one thing that we (as women) know as truth, but in the masculine world of business, we ignore, push aside, get through, and don't talk about. That is our moon cycles. As I come to the end of my moon cycles, each blood that does happen is precious to me, but I've not been mindful enough to realize that I wasn't truly honoring it as a business woman, until now.

Not so long ago, moon cycles were honored and considered sacred. A woman on her moon was excused from work because her energies were powerful and no longer about the outside world. She went to a secluded and safe place with other women who were bleeding also. What mattered during this time was the inside world, messages, signs, and voices. It was a strong intuitive time, a time to talk to Spirit for the good of herself, her family, and her community. She would have visions, journey, sleep, and dream. A woman would spend the time interpreting these messages for the good of all. This bleeding woman took care of herself and was adorned and pampered by the Elder women of the community. Some scholars believe that as the patriarchy began to rise, menstrual blood taboos were used to control women. It was no longer something powerful or sacred. It was a disgusting waste product to be ridiculed and laughed about. Modern woman took on these taboos as her own, but there is another way.

5 Things I Learned From the Money-makers

5 Things I Learned from the Money-Makers. Buffalo = Abundance

Lately, I have been seeing an over-abundance of promises on the Web on how someone doubled their income, quit their full-time job to blog, made 5-figures in one month blogging, or doubled their page views in two days? I've been wondering: If there are so many people doing this, what am I doing wrong? And not just that, but if there are so many people making that much money, why is everyone still living paycheck to paycheck, or hoping someone buys their product so they can eat next month, or taking all of these classes about making more money or growing your email list. Why isn't it happening for everyone across the board?

Alright I admit, I've clicked on a lot of these promises and taken a boatload of classes. Hell, I want to make 5 figures in one month. There is a lot of good I could do in the world with that kind of moola. However, what I've found in reading their information is nothing. They skirt around the subject, but don't really tell you how they did it or the formulas for "success" didn't work for my business. I don't want to be a Negative Nellie or project anything on anyone, but I'm a bit skeptical. The business owners who are actually making that kind of money aren't telling everyone that they're making that kind of money, even if they are business coaches! Just sayin'.

I'm beginning to think that it's a numbers game, "I have the latest get rich quick scheme." Is it all about the money or the people you serve? Can it be both? I want more real and honest communication around business, especially from a soulful perspective...or am I the only one?

So, here's what I've learned from the money-makers:
