Do You Love Your Business?

In keeping with the Valentine’s theme this month, I ran across an inspiring story about love and business.  Let Marilyn Tam (International selling author, speaker, entrepreneur, humanitarian and former CEO of Aveda, President of Reebok Apparel Products & Retail Group and VP of Nike and the founder and Executive Director of Us Foundation) inspire you with her story:

Harness the Power of Love In Business

How do you harness the immense power of love in your business? You’ve guessed it – love what you do. Wait, you say, I work for money, I don’t love my work. Or, I used to like my job but over the years it’s gotten boring; now I am doing it because I can’t think of what else I can do to earn a living. Uh oh, we need to talk. It is highly unlikely that you are going to be able to excel in your business if you are just going through the motions. Equally if not more important, your quality of life is reduced because you are spending many of your waking hours at something which gives you little joy.

How can you love your business and become more successful at the same time? Ask yourself honestly – is your life mission aligned with your business? This may take some quiet time of reflection and digging for you to get your answer. The daily grind and stress may be obscuring your original reasons for being in your line of work. Take the time to remember and reacquaint yourself with the calling that brought you into your business.

    Yes, I love my business! I can’t imagine too many other types of business when one goes away on vacation to find that they can’t wait to get home again to start delving into their work right away!

    It’s so much more than the thought of making money though. It’s the people met along the way , the traveling that we’ve done, the various shows that we’ve experienced, and most important of all, the freedom to experiment with what works and what doesn’t. Creating work that will sell is just the first part of the process. If you are successful, the road leads to experiences beyond your wildest dreams which allows you to discover abilities that you never even realized that you had! My business has given me more than financial rewards, it defines who I am at heart!
