Mindful Entrepreneurship. Serve better clients, better. Wait. What? Yip. I firmly believe we're all of equal value, here, but that we simply are not all compatible. When I say "better clients", I'm therefore referring to clients who aren't trying to change you - personality, pricing or practice - and vice versa. Who values you as you are?Read More
Do you feel more confident and secure in your own decision making process after you engage with your advisors or mentors? I have observed this widely accepted (perhaps cultural) trend of condescension, among gurus, coaches, consultants and other advising professionals.
In essence, whether they're congratulating a client patronizingly, or giving clients a "kick in the pants" for taking "too long" to do something, it's becoming the mainstream approach to dishonour people's inherent wisdom.

I don't mean 'behave' in the healthier sense, like covering your mouth when you cough or maintaining some distance between you and the stranger on the packed train. I mean 'behave', as in 'expectations', such as getting to work before the boss and leave after everyday or going to all of your 120 friends' events to avoid hurting their feelings at the expense of your own health/business/projects. Well, when I say "welcome to your safe space", I mean, "with me, you can be who you are, as-is". Does your business, and your lifestyle, say that to you? Do you want it to?Read More
