Creating a Heart-Centered Business. Build a Business That Matters. Part One
You are the Heart of Your Business. If you want to deliver something exceptional for your customers, your team, yourself … then it all starts with you. Your higher vision drives everything you do. Your higher vision is more than just the vision for your business, it’s your vision for what you see possible.
You may be clear on the direction for your business but you don’t feel whole and you can’t put your finger on it, something is missing.
Connecting with your higher vision aligns everything in your life and business. It’s the heart piece. It’s the needle on the compass that will help you with every decision you make. Get Clear. This is part one of creating your personal brand. But it’s more than that, it’s about laying the foundation for BUILDING A BUSINESS that is GREAT, not just a great business. Your business can truly make a difference in this world and you will generate more profits in return.
Do you want to empower your customer to share your philosophy, your company, engage with them on a higher level, which leads to more customers. It all starts with your higher vision.
Creating a heart-centered business is about connecting with your heart and soul, the true essence of you. This will literally change way you approach your business and create ripples of change.
This class is highly experiential. You will learn about, brainstorm and work on your vision. A small class keeps the experience intimate and supportive. And I’ll be there to support you in your journey after the class.

Connect with your higher purpose and watch your business soar. The vision piece completed in Part One speaks to what you see possible for the world. Your purpose is the internal piece. It’s the role you play in helping the world to realize that vision.

Creating a Heart-Centered Business. Lead a Values-Driven Business. Part Four
Ever feel like things aren’t in alignment in your business? Something is out of place. If you have employees they will feel it too. Ever ask yourself, “Who Am I?” “What Do I Stand For?” “What’s Important to Me?”
Your values are like your internal GPS. If you wander off track, it’s your values that will bring you back on track. Want to attract people of like mind who share the same desire to lead a purposeful, authentic life?
Once you have clearly defined, articulated and express your values, you will have access to living a profound life of integrity and of course it spills into your business and all aspects of your life.
Learn how to connect to your values, integrate them into your business in a purposeful way and connect with your customers on a whole different level. Think your values aren’t important to your customers, think again! Your clients see it, hear it and feel it, when they do business with a company where there isn’t an alignment of values. Lead from a values-driven business and become a magnet for your customers.
A small class keeps the experience intimate and supportive. And I’ll be there to support you in your journey after the class.
