Plant Your Own Seeds

To have a Fertile Business, you must have both fertile soil and seeds, which when planted within that soil, will yield a harvest in alignment with your lifestyle/values/goals.

I spend a lot of time in this newsletter teaching you how to tend your soil, so to speak. Helping you become aware of the thought patterns or beliefs that over-run your ability to live from your purpose. Those old patterns are weeds that can choke off anything that is starting to grow if left unattended.

What I haven’t talked about are the seeds that get planted within the soil. In terms of a Fertile Business, the seeds are your intentions and actions that will lead you to your business programs.

What is most important to know and what I think so many of us forget: You get to choose the seeds…you don’t have to, nor should you, plant the seeds that everyone else is planting. You don’t necessarily want the same harvest as everyone else.

To have a Fertile Business, before you plant any seeds you must ask yourself: What harvest will bring me the most joy? After all, if you want a crop of sunflowers, you don’t plant tomato seeds.

Some guiding questions:

Are you more jazzed by helping one person through deep transformation, or by sharing your energy with a room full of people?

Do you prefer spoken or written communication?

Are you about building community? A Message? A Brand?

Are you more about bringing the message to the people, or helping someone see how to live the message?

I could go on and on with questions, but here’s the bottom line: if you are someone who is fed by individual transformation but are following the gurus who tell you that you shouldn’t be trading dollars for hours and therefore you should only be teaching large group programs, you aren’t going to be happy with your harvest.

Maybe there will be money. Maybe there won’t. However, for certain, you are going to be drained energetically. You are going to begin questioning if you are really “cut out” for running your own business.

A Fertile Business is all about you. Take all your gifts, talents, and values into consideration first and THEN choose your seeds.

What an amazing harvest it will be!
