A few years ago, I realised I was delusional. I thought (wrongly as it turned out) that, like me, everyone had joy in business. Oops!
To me, business is one of the most creative and malleable things you can do, and I couldn’t see why you wouldn’t always do something you love for a job or a business!
I was realised my delusion one day while talking to Gary Douglas, the founder of Access Consciousness, about a business decision that someone was making that didn’t make sense to me. He asked me why it didn’t make sense. I replied “because there is no joy in that choice!” Gary said “Simone, business is not done from the joy of it, not in this reality. That’s not what people choose.”
I have also discovered that many people think that “Joy of Business” is just about things like positive thinking, or laughing hysterically.
But to me, the Joy of Business is actually about the adventure of living – and you get to make money from it too!
Joy of Business is the willingness to lose everything and the willingness to change everything.
It’s about being open to infinite possibilities, following what you know, no matter what it looks like and no matter what it takes.
It is also about becoming very clear on what is happening with your business so that you can make changes, which is why I am excited to have my new weekly radio show on OM times – where we get to explore tools, questions and techniques for joyfully creating business, playing with business, creating clarity and ease with business… and much, much more.
On the first show, I talk with my special guest and business associate Delany Delaney about what the Joy of Business truly is, our first jobs, questions and tools for creating in business, and play with clearing some of the insanities we have around business.
You may have heard me say this before, but Money Follows Joy, not the other way around!
So for what reason would you not do something you love, and make money from it too?
