There are all sorts of entrepreneurs out there these days, but more and more savvy business owners are popping up in the health industry. These are people who are extremely conscious when it comes to life and will carry these philosophies with them in their businesses. For example, many will only use recycled products to reduce their environmental footprint, and others will only use cruelty-free products in order to help the animals of the world. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for many start-ups to have meditation and yoga breaks throughout the day, as well as have a strong emphasis placed on personal development. While it is becoming more common for people to mesh spirituality with business, many are still patronised for their ways of living and many are worried that they won’t be taken seriously if they outwardly display themselves as a spiritual person. On the other hand, there are other business owners out there who want to take their company to the next level, however, are not schooled in the subject of spirituality. Whatever position you may be in, there are certainly many benefits to incorporating spirituality into a business such as less-stressed staff, and an increase in morale. So, without further ado, here is how to mesh spirituality with business.

Lead by example

When it comes to meshing spirituality and business it is important to lead by example. If a business owner is trying new techniques and isn’t feeling fully confident then the people around them will notice this. It is important to fully grab spirituality and new aged practices by the horns and to confidently lead by example. For instance, it is not uncommon for businesses to use certain crystals to increase productivity and wealth (some race car drivers even put crystals in their engines). Others will implement new moon or full moon practices in their businesses where they will brain storm with their team about new items that they can implement and old ones that they can get rid of. Some will have a charka specialist come in each week and balance the chakras of their staff. Daily deep breathing as a team could be implemented, as could a simple walk in nature. Whatever the type of spirituality practice that is implemented, it is important to participate full-heartedly in order for a company to experience the benefits that may be involved.

A business coach is someone who mentors a business owner and will work with them at a strategic level. They will help them develop a long-term strategy which will often help entrepreneurs become more focused and motivated. Furthermore, they are able to help people move through any mental barriers that they may have with personal development techniques such as NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming). While there are many benefits to hiring a business coach, the profession itself has become somewhat of a trend of late. This means that life coaches, nutrition coaches, health coaches, and business coaches seem to be popping up at every corner. So, for those who may have paid good money for their business coach training and are extremely passionate about what they do, they will want to ensure that they stand out from the rest and are able to reach as many people as possible. But how can a potential client differentiate between one business coach from the next? This question is what many coaches out there get stuck on and so will find themselves in a constant loop of trying to convince people to hire them. To best help those who are struggling coaches, here is how to become a successful business coach.

Create a niche that you are passionate about

Where many business coaches go wrong is that they are too broad in their offerings. The successful ones are really clear in what they can do for people as well as how they can help. For example, one professional may wish to focus on coaching those who are tradies and builders. This will make things easier when it comes to marketing and with where to show advertising. Furthermore, a coach that focuses on this niche will know exactly how they are able to help tradies and builders. Their motto may be something along the lines of “working with builders and tradies to help them organise their business structure”. As it can be seen, this is a very clear-cut statement and will let people know exactly what they are offering. Many people think that they are ruling out potential customers when they focus on a target market, but this actually isn’t the case. Those who decide on who they would like to work with are more likely to attract their ideal customers who will then spread the word to other potential customers.
