Cultivating the Inner Entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs, gardeners, artists, environmentalists, and philanthropists all share one thing in common: Their motivating force comes from inside themselves. That is the first step toward making meaning.

Making meaning investments in the things we value comes next. But the world isn’t constructed to help us do that. Life gets busy – child care, elder care, careers, home and car maintenance, and daily chores consume our lives. If you don’t make space for investing in meaning you’re bound to be disappointed in the most important parts of your life.

Making Meaning as a Business Owner
In my eight years as a business and marketing consultant for two New Jersey Small Business Development Centers, I met many people with innovative and exciting ideas for starting their own businesses.

Whether these clients came for help with business planning, marketing, financing and expansion, or maintaining market share, all had one thing in common.  They were real people, who wanted to birth their dreams into the real world.

But much of business owners’ time is spent on practical matters that have little to do with the vision and enjoyable aspects of why they established it. The difference between the entrepreneurs who are successful and those whose dreams die on the vine is their ability to acknowledge and execute the exhausting work that is necessary to run a business. They are able to build a bridge that connects the meaning their business holds for them to the mundane activities necessary to keep it afloat.

Cultivating the Inner Entrepreneur coaching is all about making that process conscious.

I work with people who are struggling with purpose, meaning, and life choice issues related to operating a business: Entrepreneurs who want to make better choices that result in a life’s work that speaks to their souls.

  •     Have you met other entrepreneurs who are invigorated by their business, but can’t seem to generate that spark in yourself?
  •     Do you feel like you’re going through the motions of running your business without getting much enjoyment?
  •     Are you unsure about where or how to invest your time, energy, or money next?
  •     Do you feel that you’re doing all of the right things, but your business still doesn’t reflect the true you?
  •     Do you have trouble believing that your efforts really matter?
  •     Are you concerned that you need to make some important changes but don’t know where to start?
  •     Do you second-guess your choices and keep switching from one thing to another?
  •     Are you frequently bored or anxious with your work?
If you are experiencing any of these difficulties, here’s how I can help.

Cultivating the Inner Entrepreneur coaching is not about the business itself, but about putting business owners in a mental space that allows them to develop an intimate, holistic relationship with their company.

Through a series of assignments and exercises you’ll learn how to rediscover and focus on the things that really matter to you about your work, restore meaning to your corporate vision, or return to a much-loved venture.
