I’VE GOT A HUSTLE HANGOVER – I’M SO MIFFED WITH THE PUSHY, SUPERFICIAL, PATRIARCHAL BUSINESS PARADIGM! ENOUGH ALREADY!
I’m saying this AGAIN because I can also see this bubbling up for many of my friends and it needs voicing over and over:
It isn’t just about WHAT you’re selling folks! It’s about HOW you do it!
Back in 1999 I was blessed to be part of a leading edge creative/intuitive development team birthing a new paradigm of ‘Spirituality in Business’. We made great strides. And then along came the new online business models of the coaching and information business and the so-called spiritual online businesses and we’re back to the start again…….integrity and humanity out of the window. Lip service, egos and ‘Mean Girls’ style back-scratching cliques, false idols and patriarchy dressed up as something else
It’s time to call it.

I was terrified. My gut was in knots. A friend had pushed me off the ledge and suggested I rent a room at a doctor-run complimentary clinic in town. But how could I? I knew my dream was to work for myself in some way that would heal and empower women but I wasn’t ready.
Or was I?

Every morning when I got up to go to a job I didn’t enjoy or to work for someone else, I had a gnawing feeling in my gut, I’m grateful to have worked in over 20 different businesses at various levels for 20 years before I made the leap to work for myself. I got loads of valuable experience and training, BUT it was a close call.

“What’s my Soul Purpose?”
It’s the question I’ve heard most often these past 17 years. We all want a clear answer, a job description, something the ego can grab hold of and run with, something the mind can make sense of.
Your Soul Purpose or path cannot be summed up in a clever 3 step process or ‘elevator pitch’. That’s the ego needing certainties. Soul doesn’t deal in certainties.

I’ve heard from a huge number of you this past week who are at the end of your tether and have been sitting at work with your head in your hands thinking:
“I have really got to get out of here NOW. I can feel my soul withering. Enough is enough. But how? What about money? What will my partner or family think?”

A Soulful Business is unlike any other business. It is a revolutionary way of transforming your life and the lives of others. It is deeply fulfilling but it isn’t for the feint-hearted.
For me creating a business has been the most confronting spiritual process of my life, yes I did say ‘spiritual’. Business can be spiritual, it can be a love letter to life, because guess what, a Soulful Business isn’t all about money. A Soulful Business doesn’t try to manipulate or hard-sell people, it isn’t solely about profit margins and sales targets.
A Soulful Business is part of YOU and it is also a healing journey.

I’ve had a question from Mary in Nebraska.
Mary asks: Is your life purpose necessarily your career or job? Could they be two different things?
Great question Mary, thank you.
It’s totally OK to express your soul purpose through a hobby.
However, if you are awakening to a call deep within you to express your soul purpose in some way, then over time it can become more apparent that you no longer wish to waste time and energy on an unfulfilling job you don’t enjoy.

I really haven’t wanted to do much lately other than rest and snuggle. In our push, push, push culture sitting and doing nothing is a guilt-inducing luxury and I still have the odd twinge of it from time to time as I put on my PJs.
When you work for yourself there is yet another layer of pressure or expectation for us to always be on the go, go, go because heaven forbid we might fail. Add to that the responsibility of a mortgage and children and no wonder we have creative, intelligent, sensitive women burning out all over the place (been there and have the t-shirt by the way).
So why does this happen and what can we do about it?
