Why Do You Want To Become a Small Business Owner?
One of the first questions I ask energy healers who come to me to for help starting up their healing practice is, “Why do you want to become a small business owner?”
You know what their number one reason is?
To make money. Specifically, they want to be financially stable and to be able to make a comfortable living as an energy worker.
So, what’s the secret to creating the financial stability you want?
It’s simple: You must fall passionately in love with what you want to do as an energy healer and put that at the core of your business.
Whether your healing modality is Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Chakra Balancing, Polarity Therapy, EFT, etc, you must be energetically passionate about what you and your practice will do to support health and well-being in your clients.
The key here is to make what you’re most passionate about your cause.
Five Steps to Putting Your Cause at the Center of Your Practice
Step One: Take out a piece of paper and write this question at the top of the page: What cause or causes am I most passionate about?
Then start listing all the causes that bubble up from within you. Don’t think too hard about them. Just allow them to arise and be known.
Step Two: To the right of each of your causes, put a number between one and ten that indicates your degree of passion for each. One would be a cause you’re mildly excited about. Ten would be a cause you’re wildly passionate about.
Step Three: To the left of each cause, put a number between zero and ten that indicates your level of resistance to starting up a practice with this cause at its core. Zero would be very little resistance. Ten would be a lot.
Step Four: Narrow down your list to the one main cause that is both high in passion and low in resistance. Ideally, you’re looking for a degree of passion of nine or ten and a resistance level of three or below. Circle the cause or causes that fall within these parameters.
If you have more than one cause circled, then take a moment to center yourself and feel into each cause. Listen inwardly for something that will make one cause stand out from the others.
Step Five: Draw a circle in the middle of your paper and place the number one cause at the center. Now draw spokes radiating outward from the core and brainstorm a list of products and services you are excited about offering that will generate a magnetic vortex through which money will flow toward your cause. Notice that I didn’t say, to you or to your business.
No matter what your healing modality is, everyone who comes to me for help starting up his or her healing practice wants to make enough money to be financially stable and profitable. To enable that to happen, follow these five steps to put what your most passionate about – your cause – at the center of your healing business.
