I am so excited! The Joy of Business book launches today… and to celebrate I am sharing the Preface from the book with you. Here’s how The Joy of Business got started:
One day I was talking to my friend, Gary Douglas, the founder of Access Consciousness™, about something a mutual friend of ours was doing in his business. I said, “What he’s doing doesn’t make any sense to me.”
Gary asked, “What do you mean it doesn’t make any sense?”
I replied, “Well, why would he choose that? There is absolutely no joy in making that business decision. Nothing in his decision is going to create anything greater.” I could see that he was killing what might be possible.
Gary asked, “What do you mean it is not joyful?”
I said, “Well, you do business for the joy of it!”
Gary said, “No, you don’t.”
I was gobsmacked. I said, “Yes, you do! Why else would you do it?”
Gary then said, “Simone, you’re the only person I know who does business for the joy of it! In this reality business is not done for the joy of it.”
That’s how our dialogue about the joy of business started out. I have since discovered that there are lots of people who think they dislike business, and there are also many people who find business joyful. I’d like you to be one of them. And I’d like to invite you to change any point of view you may have that business is not—or cannot be—joyful. That is my invitation to you.
What if business were fun—and you could make money?
Thank you for being willing to know there is a greater possibility in business. If this is something you’d like to know more about, you can buy The Joy of Business at our shop.
