If I can’t dance I don’t want to be a part of your revolution Emma Goldman

I know it can be overwhelming building your Holistic Biz. There is SO much you can do to build a thriving business. There is

  • Creating a Client Attractive Web-site
  • Blogging
  • Tele-classes
  • Webinars
  • Funnels
  • Facebook Marketing
  • Twitter Marketing
  • Videos
  • Creating Products
  • Launching a new Program
  • List building

Yet there is one foundational piece of growing your Holistic Biz that can never be neglected if you want to create amazing success…. and that is having fun! You see when your energy is open and you are having fun there is a profound ripple effect that grows your Holistic Business to amazing heights.

Here is how having fun skyrockets your Holistic Biz Success

#1. When you are having fun you are most aligned with your Authentic Self and from your Authentic Self you get your most innovative and successful ideas business. When that new article title that has been eluding you or you question what new Program to launch. All of these answers come easily and joyfully to you when you are having fun! I remember getting one of my best business ideas when I was on a walk with my dog on a beautiful, sunny day.

If you’re having fun, you wind up innovating.” – Barbara Corcoran

#2. Having fun raises your vibration and makes you more visible to your Ideal Clients and this attracts them to you. We are more visible to others when we are in our Joy. Just the other night my sweetie and I were out dancing and there was a woman on the dance floor in a state of pure joy.   She was like a beam of light that was hard to NOT focus on her because her vibration was so high. I loved watching her and it moved me into a state of Joy just watching her Joy. She was magnetic!!

#3. Having fun in your Holistic Business and in your life models an outcome your Clients are looking for. You need to be an example and demonstration of what your Clients are looking for. I coached a Client of mine that was a very talented Holistic Psychotherapist who was a complete Rockstar yet she was working so hard, not having fun in her business or in her personal life.

I asked her in her Coaching call “Do you think you are demonstrating the kind of life that you would want for your Clients?” The light bulb went off for her right away.   She LOVED her Clients and wanted amazing things for them. So I said to her “You must be the example and lead the way for them”. Not only just to be the leader for her Clients, but more importantly she deserved to have a fun, joyful life herself.

Her homework before our next Coaching call was not to work harder on her business but to shift her energy so she was having fun consistently. I believe potential Clients can tune into our energy with what we are creating in our own life. It either will either draw them to us or repel them.

#4. If you make a conscious choice to have fun and joy in our Holistic Business it will make doing all that you need to do SO much easier. Imagine a day where you are in a state of Joy and you have a lot on your plate vs. you are in a low vibrational state of worry and fear and have a lot on your plate. Isn’t is SO much easier to get things done when you are in a joyful state?

It can take practice to bring more Joy into your business and life but it is SO worth it.

Here are 5 Ways to Increase the Fun and Profits in Your Holistic Biz

#1. When you are planning your day ask yourself “How could I infuse fun into my day today?” For example to write this article I came to my favorite café and ordered my favorite sandwich. The vibe of the café is joyful to me and ordering a healthy, tasty lunch put me in a fantastic state to write. What small shifts can you make in your day to have more fun. It could be moving your office out onto your deck when the weather is nice!

#2. Reach out to others for love and support. Sometimes you are working on a project that would be more fun for you if you worked with a friend or an accountability partner together on it. I recently assigned to my students that were working on their web-site pages to pair up with their accountability and schedule time to work on these pages. They were able to get farther on these pages faster AND had so much more fun in the process.

#3. Plan fun things in your personal life every week. I recommend every Sunday taking your schedule and not only adding fun to your business days but also planning fun things for when you are done with work.   Examples: Taking your kids for a picnic lunch, taking a walk with a good friend, going out dancing, doing something creative. You know you have planned enough things when you look at your schedule for the next week and go “Yippe!! I can’t wait for the week to start!!”

#4. Plan space in your schedule. Sometimes to have more fun you need to create more space. It could be meditation breaks a few times a day. It could be a Saturday morning where you don’t schedule anything and let yourself just float and “be”. I find a little goes a long way when you create space in your schedule. Ask yourself “How can I create more space this week”

#5. Say “No” to the commitments in your life that aren’t fun for you. Oftentimes you can hold onto commitments you agreed to along time ago that you have outgrown and don’t fit where you are going now. Have courage to be honest and say no to the commitment to free up your time for the things you really love and light you up.
