Endeavors of Spirtual Entrepreneurs

Stories of Spiritual Entrepreneurs and their Strategies

You might be curious about the term Spiritual Entrepreneur.

My Coaching Business, Omni Mindfulness is in the Wellness Space.

The energy that I use to create it is spiritual in nature. 

I, therefore, consider myself not just an entrepreneur but a “Spiritual Entrepreneur” and my core values are driven by the desire to SERVE.

However, that same energy can be placed to build other kinds of businesses that aren’t in the wellness space.

Each of us brings a certain “service energy” if you will, into our personal and professional life. This energy is a reflection of our alignment with our core values, and is fueled by our “why”.

My ‘why’ is my son, my family, and my insatiable desire to uplift others.

My ‘why’ is a reflection of my alignment with my core spiritual values. 

From morning to evening, my day is designed to support those values, which is then reflected in how I show up for my business and clients.

The attitude of Service First

My Guru Paramahansa Yogananda would be known to say,

“Instead of making money and greater profits your goal in business, make service your goal.” He would also express, “Business is nothing but serving others materially in the best possible way.” 

Parmahansa Yogananda

Navigating the entrepreneurial path, while still making a legitimate financial profit can feel tricky. 

I’ve realized that it is my passion for what I do that keeps me moving forward. Yes, let’s be sensible, I do need to make a reasonable profit to help my family financially. 

That is why I am kicking off 2023 with an exploration of the topic of how to spiritualize business. 

And that is why the guests of my Omni Mindfulness Podcast were purposely chosen, as they maintain a service-first attitude while offering practical ways to thrive as a business owner.

These individuals are living everyday 21st-century experiences and functioning in a pragmatic way to thrive professionally.

Strategies to Spiritualize Your Business 

Based on my interviews with my podcast guests this month, my conversations with fellow entrepreneurs, and based on my own experience in creating a spiritualized business, here are strategies that have inspired me.

(1) Know Your ‘WHY’

It wasn’t until the untimely passing of my mom that I started to really ask “why am I doing this”. Why am I commuting 2 hours a day, and willing to lose time with family and my son?

And it wasn’t until I was willing to challenge the “status quo” in all areas of my life. I had to especially challenge myself to get aligned on my core values. After years in corporate, I realized that while others around me were comfortable being pigeonholed, I was willing to step outside of the box.

At this point in my, I found myself going through a personal transformation, and this driving force became the catalyst for creating my coaching service, Omni Mindfulness.

(2) Know Your Purpose & Your Niche

When I created Omni Mindfulness, at first there was just a seed of thought. I thought perhaps with my yoga training, maybe I could create a business in the wellness space, or maybe I work with others to uplift them through some type of coaching, perhaps with kids.

I had to trust that the path to clarity for my purpose would be revealed in divine timing.

While things were still unfolding for me, what I knew in my heart was that the purpose of my work was to serve.

What I realized was that my years of education and experience in technology, working in the business with major IT corporations, combined with working with women gave me a first-hand understanding of a very specific niche.

I discovered that my niche is to serve professional working women and mompreneurs.

(3) Tune Into Your Energy & The Energy Around You

In 2019 I signed up to become a Mindset & Meditation Coach. I became voracious in learning and growing, with an abundance of energy that kept me going.

Energy is everything.

When you do something that gives you joy and makes you feel that joyful spark, it is then you’ve aligned with your authentic self. This is where you then experience flow.

When we start cultivating greater awareness of the energy that fuels us, we learn that when we serve others we are really serving our own light.

I think of this as the practice of tuning into your ‘Service Energy’.

However, it wasn’t enough to be aware of my own energy. So I needed to learn to expand.

I had to learn to create greater awareness of the energy around me, through greater attunement with others. This awareness helps you recognize souls that are vibrating at your level.

Tuning into the energy of others comes from being open to creating your own tribe. In practical terms, it is important as an entrepreneur to create a community to support your niche
