Learn more about being a soulpreneur.
About 20 years ago I knew that one day - I would own my own business! And, I dreamed of that day, when I would become my own boss, have more creative freedom and help people in meaningful ways. But I also knew it would take time.
About 10 years ago I began training and practicing hypnosis, N.L.P., coaching and astrology. I also began writing and recording meditations for Insight Timer. And when I officially left my corporate career 5 years ago, the transformation really began.
I didn't realize how much I needed to change, and went through many ups and downs in my process. I was forced to get under the stories that lived inside my nervous system. And let go of those beliefs and feelings that no longer served me or my highest good. And believe me, after climbing the advertising ladder as a woman - there was a lot to let go of!
My road wasn't easy or clear. And, I faced many intense challenges along the way. But the one thing that didn't change, was my passion to create a business that raises consciousness, empowers people and promotes creativity. In fact, over the years this passion has only gotten stronger.
When I first heard the term "Soulpreneur" in a business article I read a few years ago - I felt that deep "yes" in my body.
The term "Soulpreneur" is a relatively new term that emerged as part of the larger movement toward integrating purpose, meaning, and spirituality into business practices. Soulpreneurs may be involved in a wide range of industries, including wellness, coaching, personal development, sustainable businesses, social entrepreneurship, and holistic practices.
A Soulpreneur is a soul-driven entrepreneur or leader who aligns their business with their personal values, passions, and spiritual beliefs. They seek to create and run a business that not only generates financial success but also serves a higher purpose. And, they want to contribute to the well-being of others, to bring fulfillment and meaning to their own life.
And while at times, my road to success has felt unclear, the one thing that was super clear - was that I was a "Soupreneur".
