Finding Joy in Being an Entrepreneur

As entrepreneurs, we are in the privileged position of being able to make an impact on the world. We have seized the opportunity to create our own business and financial destiny. But sometimes entrepreneurs, though passionate at the outset of their business venture, become disheartened when they don’t see success. I want you to know that things don’t have to be that way.

Our business is there to support the lifestyle we want to create for ourselves and our families and communities. As we carry on our business, we need to revisit and reconnect with our passion for our venture. And we need to remind ourselves why we started our business in the first place.

As creative female entrepreneurs, we design our business by being in touch with our natural gifts and talents. As effortlessly as nature creates all that surrounds us, we too can make the income we require without hard work. Look at the seasons: spring changes into summer, flowers bloom, the sun comes up—all without effort, through the natural creative flame. We too must get in touch with the creative flame within us. We don’t have to do things in our business that we don’t enjoy. Sometimes, to find joy and improve our income, all we need to do is make small changes. Let’s suppose you are a real estate agent. You may enjoy displaying and staging houses more than the other parts of selling. So you will use your creativity to do things differently than other agents. Perhaps you can delegate the showing and selling to your team while you spend your time creating the display. In this way you will carve out a different market for yourself.

Whenever I spend time with my clients, the first thing I do is have them make a list of what they love to do and are really good at. Oftentimes, my clients think that because something comes naturally to them, it must be easy—anyone can do it. But that isn’t true. Your unique talents are the blueprint you—and only you—have received from a divine source.

Sometimes my clients are not sure how they can apply what they love to do to their particular business. As we brainstorm and get creative, they begin to see the bigger picture. Their new-found awareness of what is possible in their business frees them to fly and dream and manifest abundantly. They see that the opportunities are endless! In them I hear joy and renewed commitment and passion!

I encourage you to take a look at your business and ask yourself: What activities bring me joy and allow me to connect with my creativity? What can I offer my clients or customers that would blend with my natural talents and allow me to be creative and support my lifestyle?
