No Resolutions this Year!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

You’re off the hook!  No need to make any resolutions.  We know they don’t often work and just make us miserable for a few days while we starve on carrots and hurt from taking up exercise too vigorously.  The reason resolutions don’t work is that they’re based on negativity, on thinking about what we don’t want, and, even though we may say we’re focusing on a “healthier body” or business growth, the view is still on the amount of weight or the lack of revenues.

We can continue to be driven by the fear that something we don’t want will happen if we don’t take action, or we can put our energy and focus on our dreams, what we want to create in our lives and our businesses in the new year.  The choice:  pushed by fear, or driven by passion and mission.

In 2008 when my husband and I were on a safari in Tanzania, we met a young camp manager named Elibariki Shammy.  Shammy had just completed his bachelor’s degree and dreamed of graduate school.  He originally had a scholarship for a program in the states, but decided to remain in his country while his new wife Stella completed her degree and they enjoyed their first child, Destiny.  We have become wonderful friends and I am inspired by his drive and determination.

Shammy and Stella

Against significant odds, Shammy worked extra jobs, and secured the grants and scholarships to complete his dissertation and receive his master’s degree from the university in DAR ES-SALAAM in October.  He is now working as the NTBs Project Country Coordinator, with the. Tanzania Chamber of Commerce Industry and Agriculture & Trademark East Africa.

During his journey he once emailed me this thought:   “I think an important capital that young men need the most in these times is a positive mind. There is no way one can excel in this elementary world without having conquered the negativity.”

Now he is putting his energy and vision toward an even bigger dream…  He has purchased some land near his family in Arusha, TZ where he plans to raise funds and build a school to help his neighbors afford quality education   He shares, “ It could start from nursery school, then primary and finally secondary school. These are just the thoughts in our minds and we are still thinking at how we could go about them. I have come to realize that most of the good things that happen in my life start by a mere thought, this is to say it is hard to have  any material thing without first conceiving it in our minds.”

We can learn a lot about powerful intentions from Shammy:

  • Overcome negativity, and release or forgive whatever is getting in the way of your moving forward.
  • Be grateful for what you have and continue to build from where you are now.
  • Have a clear picture in the present tense of what you want.
  • Make the dream big enough to include the good for others.

In January, The Inspired Business Center is launching a 21 Day Masterful Intentions Success Process. Our intention is to deliver a cost effective way to explore what we teach. This program is fun, interactive, and easy to follow. Each day for 21 days, you will experience various aspects of the overall Masterful Intentions philosophy. Everything we do will be archived so that you can participate whenever and however best suits your style of interaction. Once the 21 days are complete, you will have immersed yourself in the Masterful Intentions Process and seeing the results!

Happy Holidays and Blessings for an amazing and prosperous New Year!

Improve Profits/Enrich Lives: The Economic Power of a Spiritual Work Environment.

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Business is filled with people we would like to partner with, people we feel forced to partner with, and people we would rather have nothing to do with. The challenge is not determining which person falls into which category but rather finding ways to meet each person we interact with as a friend. Granted we may not be able to greet them as our best friend, but a friend none the less. Along the way we may find that those we thought of as marginal friends become better friends and good friends become great friends. Here at The Inspired Business Center we believe that every client, customer and partner has the potential to become a great friend and even more a great collaborator.

During the past month we have been looking at some of our collaborators The first thing to remember is that collaboration is truly a two way street. In order to attract great collaborators to our business we must also be great collaborators in return. The second aspect is to have a deep understanding of what our collaborator does, believes, and more importantly how they are accomplishing their mission and fulfilling their vision. Finally we have to become great friends to be great collaborators.

Collaboration can be defined in various ways, however we choose to look at collaboration as working towards a shared mission or vision in such a way that no one player is positioned above or below any of the others. This implies that all parties will equally share their resources, talents, and creativity. We can also hold an expectancy to share in the profits, expanded market exposure and social recognition once the mission and or vision is realized.

How then does one find others to collaborate with? This is a challenging question. There is no phone directory of honest, reliable, trustworthy collaborators that share our values, mission and vision. Finding a great collaborator is not something you wake up one morning and decide to recruit into your organization. There is no web site that allows you to search for conscious entrepreneurs or organizations that are truly creating sustainable products. Here is where the heavy work comes in. As a leader in today’s world you must be open and aware of trending topics, concepts and leaders within your industry. You have to take time to surf the web, take a risk on a new book, and engage with the ever increasing stream of tele-seminars.

We believe that as an organizational leader, part of your position requires you to research other thought leaders and explore the growing edge concept and processes prevalent in today’s business world. That is exactly how we met Tom Zender.

Tom has led a very busy life. He is a recognized spiritual leader and corporate executive with decades of success, Tom has held management positions at General Electric and Honeywell, and was a Senior VP in NYSE and NASDAQ listed corporations. He is President Emeritus of Unity which serves over three million people of all faiths worldwide. Tom’s entrepreneurship helped birth several technology companies. His corporate board experience includes NASDAQ and Toronto Stock Exchange listed companies – plus nonprofits such as the Association for Global New Thought, Evolutionary Leaders, Forum for Corporate Directors and Ottawa University. He will also be sharing an hour of his time with us on May 5th.

Not long ago Rev. Marla approached me and asked if I had heard of Tom’s book God Goes to Work. I had not and so she picked up a couple of copies and suggested that The Inspired Business Center team members become familiar with him and his work. She set about contacting Tom and over the past several months we have begun the process of creating a business friendship and collaboration. We’re excited Tom has agreed to appear on a tele-seminar May 5th hosted by Rev. Marla.

God Goes to work book coverTogether they are creating an interactive and informative virtual seminar:  Improve Profits/Enrich People: The Economic Power of a Spiritual Work Environment. During this one hour event participants will learn:

* The key characteristics of a spiritual environment

* Management attitudes and behaviors that encourage and foster a spiritual environment

* How a spiritual environment can impact your bottom line

They have also agreed to share a 7- step spiritual tool kit of practical steps you can take to immediately enhance your life, the life of your employees and, ultimately the culture of your workplace. Everyone that registers for the Call will receive the toolkit and a downloadable recording of the call. They have also agreed to present this incredibly valuable information at no cost to you. Simply use the registration link below or CLICK HERE to learn more about this amazing opportunity.

Even if you cannot make the call please register so you can receive the recording and your complimentary 7- step toolkit with everything you need to begin building a spiritual work environment in your organization.

Whether you have a handful of collaborators or are wondering who your first collaborator might be, you stand on the growing edge of a new great adventure in your business. Finding, nurturing and developing your collaborative relationships is an adventure that takes time and yet will ultimately reward you and your clients with expanded opportunities to truly experience spiritual transactions. We encourage you to explore the opportunities and report back on your successes.

Follow this link to learn more about the Improve Profits / Enrich People: The Economic Power of a Spiritual Work Environment Tele-Seminar or Register right now for the call.

Regardless of your choice we wish you, Happy Collaborating.

Until next Time,

Robert

The Solstice of Your Business Year

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Star of David at SunriseDecember 21st is the day of the winter solstice the shortest day of sunshine for the Northern Hemisphere.  It’s natural then, for each of us to turn within and shine our inner light more brightly.  A time for stillness and reflection.  Eckhart Tolle, author of The New Earth says “To be still is to be conscious without thought.  You are never more essentially, more deeply yourself than when you are still.”

In that personal stillness we can think back on the year.  It’s been a time of significant change for most of us, a time of what I call values-based choices.

In some instances they’ve been tough decisions based on lower revenues…having to let go of employees who have contributed their time and talents to us, or  being “let go” by some of our customers who were also feeling the crunch.

What have you learned from all this?  What did you discover about what’s truly important to you?  What do you know you want to do differently moving forward?

What did you release that actually lightened your mental or physical load and freed your soul?

In many cases the tough choices have created gaps that need to be filled back in. Maybe there are positions or functions you learned you could live without and other posts that are critical to rehire so you to meet the customer orders that are beginning to increase.

What relationships with family, friends, business associates, or volunteer causes did you put on hold because you were “too busy” that now need to be re-established and re-connected?

What commitments to yourself and others did you sweep under the rug till you had more time?  Is that still something you need or want to fulfill or can some of those items be handled by someone else or not done at all?  Decide and Act.  If you plan to honor a commitment first quarter, get it in your calendar.   If you can’t get it done, let the other party know you can’t do it, and, if possible, help them find another resource.  One way or the other, get those commitments off your mental list of “oughts” and “shoulds” and free up your energy and focus.

Joel Goldsmith wrote “Within us is a deep well of contentment, a vast, all-embracing silence into which we relax and through which all good appears to us.”

The important thing is to be complete and clear as you move into the Holiday Celebrations with family and friends so you can be fully mentally and emotionally “present”.   It’s the greatest gift you can give them!

Blessings and Peace,   Marla

Are your Giving Thanks for the Holiday Season?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season we invite you to pause for a moment and ask yourself one simple question. How easy would it be to write your Thanksgiving week blog on the topic of giving thanks, or just skip it all together? Who would be reading our blog on the day before Thanksgiving anyway? Would anyone notice if we just waited until next year to send another newsletter?

Chapel of Thanksgiving

Chapel of Thanksgiving

OK, that was a few questions, and I know many of you have either asked those questions or heard them asked by friends and colleagues.  Once we hit the middle of November it seems like many companies, especially entrepreneurs get stuck in doing what’s easy and what’s convenient to simply get through the holiday season. We completely understand how busy life and business can get during this season. We also understand you want to do the “right” thing and keep your company moving forward. There is nothing more detrimental to your business than skipping a weekly blog post or a monthly newsletter during the holiday season. How then can you juggle the demands of family, life and business? If there was an easy answer for that we would surely share, however we know every situation is quite different. We will however share a few ideas on how to make this holiday season something unique and potentially profitable for you and your business.

The holiday season, arguably, begins with that All-American holiday of Thanksgiving. Regardless of your country of origin the truth is simple. Thanksgiving has become a week long holiday for many. We begin to check out on Monday and Tuesday as we prepare to travel or host our guests. We continue by shopping on Friday and now even stretch the holiday through the following Monday as Cyber-Monday has become a prevalent aspect of the holiday. Once we return to work in December we all know we only have a few weeks until the traditional year-end break. As our workforce expands we must be sensitive to the world holiday celebrated within our company. We know that many of you have given up on a Christmas party in favor of a holiday party and that in itself is a great step towards expressing unity.

As a business owner you are being called to balance the demands of your business and the desires of your employees. Taking care of the human capital of your business is, in our opinions, paramount. Allowing for flexibility on your part during this season builds a sense of belonging within your workforce. We suggest you identify the people within your company that celebrate various holiday traditions and ask them to come together and determine how the office can be decorated in order to honor all faith traditions. These people may also look at creating a tradition, ritual or party that can honor everyone’s beliefs. We understand that during the holiday season there will be various demands by vendors, suppliers, and customers, yet business must continue as normally as possible. Everyone feels a little extra stress as they try to meet those demands and still plan for vacation time, shopping, cooking and personal celebrations. This stress can lead employees to make costly mistakes and perform poorly. We ask that you look at ways to provide outlets for that stress. This may be a an extra 15 minute break per day or a flex schedule that allows people to come into work a little late and stay late or come in early so they can leave early.

During our recent series on “The 4 Pillars of Spiritual Entrepreneurship” we spoke about Adaptability as an aspect of spiritual business. Now is the time to practice adaptability in a way that serves your employees and your business. Trusting that when you treat your employees, or yourself for solo-entrepreneurs, with flexibility, adaptability and spiritual respect is a form of giving that will return itself in increased loyalty, productivity and understanding for the needs of the business during this busy season. I have often watched as business slows down during the holiday only to pick up again in early January.

Small Globe in eye

Looking Ahead???

The coming weeks are a time to reflect upon your business successes during this year and cast a vision of what may be in the coming year.

Now is a time to express your gratitude for the “Greater Yet to Be” of your business and rest knowing next year will be more amazing that this year or even what you are imagining may come.  Now is not the time to try to force more revenue, more productivity or more business through your organization. Any attempt to make something happen or force an outcome will simply add more stress to your people. Now is the time to look within and prepare for an amazing New Year.

Here at The Inspired Business Center we understand the need to prepare for the future and so we have created a number of opportunities to plan for the coming year without adding any more work to the remainder of this year. Simply head on over to our Coaching Packages Page and consider the possibilities.   The packages range from full year programs to flex programs where you can select a block of coaching time to laser in on a priority challenge. Each of the offerings there are designed to provide you with a system that will support you as you venture into 2011. As always we are here to answer any of your questions and determine which package is the perfect option to support you in the coming year. Simply use our CONTACT Information and together we can explore the options available.

As you enjoy your family, down time, and vacations during the next 6 weeks relax knowing your business is expanding and growing in ways you may not even recognize yet. As you allow this time to be an opportunity to reflect and express gratitude the Universe is conspiring on your behalf. 2011 will be unlike anything you have ever experienced and we are committed to providing you with more ways to be inspired and engaged with the principles of a Spiritual Business.

Until next week,

NAMASTE

P.S. We have a special guest blogger joining us next week, so be sure to check back on Wednesday Dec 1st for this special guest. Then on Dec 8th and 15th Rev. Marla will be sharing a two part series on the new book by Tom Zender God Goes To Work. We have quite a bit in planned for the remainder of the year and invite you to join us as we reflect on 2010 and cast the vision for 2011.

Pillar #2 Vision and Adaptability

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

http://www.flickr.com/photos/vibrantspirit/2733187776/sizes/m/

Amethyst Vision

In our last post we looked at how our Beliefs influence and support our Character, as well as how these two aspects of life are the first pillar of spiritual entrepreneurship. This week we turn our focus upon the pillar of Vision and Adaptability. More often than not the business world hears the word vision and immediately jumps to the concept of vision and mission statements. While these aspects of your business are incredibly important and the process we teach will help to create vision and mission statements, we look at vision in a different light. (which is what? – need a sentence here)

Just over 9 years ago I was introduced to the Visioning Process which was developed by Michael Bernard Beckwith of the Agape International Spiritual Center. The process involves entering into a silent, inner conversation with your Higher Power. During the conversation you are able to catch a vision of something greater than you may have ever known for your life and your business. As I approach a decade of practicing the Visioning Process I have been witness to incredible insight, amazing leaps in consciousness and increased material wealth by the individuals and business owners using the process. As a business owner you are being provided with an amazing opportunity to take an “insider’s look” at the future of your business and how that future can benefit both you and humanity.

Using Visioning as a tool can serve your business in both the short and long terms. Many businesses made adjustments to their operations in the past two years, and many of those adjustments did little if anything to advance the company in the direction of their vision. The companies that remained true to their vision, however, are better positioned than ever before to quickly rebound as we enter what we believe to be a “full steam ahead” recovery. Those that reacted to the economic currents are now asking “how do we re-align ourselves with our original vision and mission?” Regardless of the action your business took in the past couple of years now is the time to reclaim and re-energize your vision of your business. At The Inspired Business Center we work with companies of all sizes in re-claiming, re-shaping or simply creating their vision by teaching and facilitating the Visioning Process for Businesses.

The process however is not a one time deal. Once a vision is realized the Visioning Process will inform you of the next greater possibility for your company. It’s here that we reach the pinnacle of the second pillar. Adaptability is incredibly important as the vision evolves and your business grows, and becomes more profitable. Adaptability is not a “do whatever it takes” mentality. Adaptability is process of checking in with the vision and discerning which steps, re-organizations, or changes in operation will move the company closer to the fulfillment of the vision in the current environmental conditions. This is not the time to throw things against the wall and see what sticks. Adaptability is the willingness to consider a different perspective to a situation other than what’s always been done before or what all the experts say you should do in a specific situation.

The Visioning Process is a never-ending affair. Once you begin you could stop at any time, but honestly, I don’t see why you would ever want to. Visioning gives you more to look at, and possibilities to explore. As you begin to implement the vision you’re presented with the opportunity to adapt your business or organization to meet a Higher Power’s perspective of how your company can serve you and humanity at the same time. Adaptability speaks to the opportunity to create something more than your imagination or ideas ever could. I find it refreshing to know that while my business remains mine to lead the vision itself is calling me forward. If I can remain adaptable to the situations of life and the economy as they occur, the vision itself will always be there showing me something I may not have considered. This unique perspective can only come through Visioning and will never let us down. The vision itself continually evolves and shapes itself into the highest and best possibility for the company.

The question becomes if you are willing to allow the Highest Vision of your company to serve you in building a company that is adaptable to the ever shifting world around you? If you allow the vision to guide you I believe you will find more good times in your business regardless of what the rest of the world is doing. You will be positioned to take advantage of the next great economic opportunity rather than being forced to sit on the side lines and wait it out.

If you would like to explore the Highest Vision for your business contact us and we’ll schedule a no obligation cost free consultation with you and look at how we might serve you in discovering the true vision of your business.

Next week we shall continue our exploration of the 4 Pillars by looking at how the pillar of Passion and Skills support the creating on your rock solid business and how you can engage others in the creation of the business you truly desire.

Guest Post from Team Member Alain Bolea

Preparing for the Recovery

As a result of the sharp economic downturn just experienced, most businesses operate on a bare bone basis.  As soon as economic activity turns around it will e necessary for most to hire right away because capacity is now so greatly reduced.

Before doing so, take the time to review your Cash Flow forecast and your Strategy position.

1. Cash Flow: When a business grows again, it absorbs cash; particularly when inventory, receivables have to be rebuilt after a bare bone period.  Building working investment is inevitable, but it quickly becomes an issue when financing is difficult particularly now when banks continue to sit on the side lines.

2. Strategy: Although this is a word that is not part of the every day vocabulary of most small and mid-sized businesses, strategy should be reviewed at this time.  Why? Because all businesses are exposed to change that occurs faster than ever before, and the crisis may hide those changes so to speak:

a. In a very disruptive crisis business structure always adjust.  The assumption is that when business    picks up again, the game will look the same, but permanent disruptions wil have occurred.  Be prepared.  Make sure you explore:

  1. How your clients have changed during the crisis?  Have their own markets shifted?
  2. How have your competitors fared?
  3. Are there new competitors that are from outside of the traditional landscape?  When business is slow, companies often expand into contiguous markets; some new players may have shown up on your turf.
  4. Are some of the players offering a different value proposition?  Disruptive innovation often appears in crisis times.
  5. Has there been a shift in what your clients buy?  how they buy it?

b.  Have you reviewed how you do things?  Could you increase the value to your clients and/or increase productivity by changing your processes? Have you streamlined operations so you can now add business in the most effective manner?

c.  When you begin hiring again, will the next person you hire be doing the same job as the one you let go?  Or do you need different skills?

The end of a recession is a good time to review your business environment.  When things are still slow, prepare a plan on how best to manage cash flow to respond to the opportunities and build a profitable platform.

Working Investment and Payroll will quickly absorb all cash if you do not focus on productivity, through process improvements and efficiency investments.

Guest Post From Team Member Michael Doyle

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

This month, we received our new president, and from him the people of this country will have great expectations. Our country is in dire need of a strong leader who will lead this country in a new economic direction and out of the recession that we have been slumbering in now for a year. Barack Obama will need to be a strong leader with the resolve, confidence and leadership to guide this country out of its current troubles.

We as business leaders and owners need to have the same resolve, confidence and leadership that will lead our own into not just survival this year, but one of strength and prosperity. To reach our goals and objectives, we must act boldly with a well-designed plan to get everyone within our companies working together and going in the same direction. We must have faith in one another and never give up, work our tails off and change the direction of our companies, just like Barack Obama will need to do. It’s time for our new leader, and us as leaders, to act with the confidence and  boldness needed to change the direction of our country and our companies.

Michael Doyle is President of Brand Iron Marketing
