Business is not for you?

I have spoken to many people who ask themselves this question…

” Do I still want to be in business?”

I did some personal reflection on that same question; I started up some years ago with a love for what I do and a passion to deliver a service that outwits, outreaches and outdoes everyone in my profession.

Back when I started, I believed my zest for my business would shine through every time. I was inspired and truly thought I couldn’t do anything other than be successful

My excitement did not stop the initial thoughts that everyone trying something big and new has; “Am I ready?” “Is this the right path?” “Who will buy from me?” and of course, “Will anyone buy from me?”

And then a thought came that surprised me, I wasn’t in it for me.

Business isn’t about you – in fact it should never be about you. It’s for the people you serve – your clients, customers and contacts. It’s about their hopes and dreams, their wants and needs, their desires and wishes. You are in business to be there for them, when they need you.

And when you switch to that mindset, the wonderful law of reciprocity kicks in – when you give, you receive.

Not just from whomever you help and serve, but from others too.

And that is a blessing that can fill you up and sooth your soul.

So the next time you wonder if you are in business for the right reasons, think of the words of your clients, what have they said to you about what you provide that has made you grateful to be in business.

Do I still want to be in business? You bet!

Do you?

One more thing…..don’t keep us a secret, please share this.

Till the next time,

Jane Quinn
