The Joy of Being an Authentic Entrepreneur

Sooner or later a question shows up in your mind that you just can’t answer. In fact, you refuse to answer it or ignore it, but it keeps coming back. It’s like a stone in your shoe. First, it’s just an irritation, but left unanswered it becomes a blister, and if that’s left unanswered, pretty soon you have an infection.

The question that we all face at some point is this: Is this what business is all about for me? Surely there’s more than this! Where have I gone wrong? What can I do? I don’t want my business to be like this.

We’ve all had it. Frustration, anxiety, lack of fulfilment and/or doubt. They all show up, don’t they? And unfortunately they will continue to show up until you CHANGE something…


Become An Authentic Entrepreneur!

When you get right down to it, what most entrepreneurs want is to live a peaceful, happy life, have customers they really love and make more money than they need to spend each month. That’s all. Then they could spend time with the people they care about and do the things that make their heart sing.

In other words, they want to be an Authentic Entrepreneur.

Being an authentic entrepreneur starts when you start feeling happy every day, and that starts by letting go of everybody and everything that no longer serves you.

Things that no longer serve you may be:

  • Clients or customers that you’ve known for a long time
  • Business partners you’ve been working with
  • Programs, devices and tools you are using
  • Places, online platforms and websites you visit
  • Groups and activities you have been involved in for years
  • Old habits, thoughts, and expectations

All the people, places, and experiences that you allow to perpetuate are weighing you down. No amount of success drive or positive thinking is going to change anything for you until you face the real issue.


What Happens When You Start Being Authentic?

Here’s what happens when you do:

  1. For the first time in a long time you begin to experience JOY just through your thoughts and feelings. You notice that, without any conscious effort on your part, you have no attachment to the people, places, or things that no longer serve you. Letting them all go becomes effortless.
  2. You have new adventures. Opportunities to experience new activities that you have never even thought of before present themselves and you find yourself excited to try them.
  3. You learn and discover. Your interest in learning new things awakens and you find yourself fascinated by the idea of learning new skills.
    • The people you meet while learning these new skills resonate with your heart and you feel at home
  4. You make new friends and get new customers. New people start to come into your life and business who are in alignment with your new fresh way of thinking.

Once you start being authentic, your frustration, anxiety, and doubt are replaced with optimism, enthusiasm and fulfilment in all that you do. Life and business seem simpler. Others even say you look different and more alive (yes, even your children). You ARE different. You’ve become An Authentic Entrepreneur!
