A Broader Perspective on Creating Success

V17 AlignExpandSucceedsm 125x150 A Broader Perspective on Creating SuccessLast spring, Deb and I created our special “21 Building Blocks” Report on how to build a successful online business. The first 7 steps are the soft disciplines revolving around identifying your Values, setting goals around these, and building your business structure to support these. 

But beyond our experiences, there’s a book being launched today that  anyone who is ready to increase their commitment to running a conscious business should read.

In Align, Expand and Succeed”, Shifting the Paradigm of Entrepreneurial Success, you’ll meet 40 extraordinary men and women, from solopreneurs, healers, CEOs of multimillion dollar corporations, doctors, speakers, radio hosts, coaches – men and women who answered the call to share their insights and inspiration of what it took to live their truth as conscious entrepreneurs.

I want to share with you here some excerpts from interviews with some of these authors around the theme of this book. I hope it speaks to you as it did me.

Question: “Why is the topic of Align, Expand and Succeed important?”

Anita Crawford Clark
The way business is shifting in the 21st century will leave many entrepreneurs out in the cold if they do not recognize this shift and adjust their sails. Many are still sailing in the old direction of “dog eat dog” business practices. Consumers are no longer willing to accept 20th century marketing tactics. They want to do business with those they know, like and trust. This mandates relationships to be started, nurtured and continued in a way that places the highest value on the customer, their needs, their best interest and over a longer period of time.

Andrea Hylen
The most powerful moments in my life have been when I felt in total alignment with a project or event. Money, people, and resources appeared in unexpected ways. Even things like an unexpected inheritance, a fire on my property, a sponsor and more.

Jane Strassel
When you align with who you really are and become the best at being “you”,  you allow the good to come in.  Not only do you expand your own mind with the infinite possibilities, but you expand the minds of those watching you as you lead by example.  The success comes automatically because you are aligned and being your true self.  If you can do this as an individual, you can start affecting the world in this way. The success is in the journey of aligning and as we stay aligned, we will always be expanding and enjoying success not just for ourselves, but for our world.

Kathleen Gage
In order to fully live one’s purpose it is essential to know what your primary values are. Based on this knowledge the greatest gift we can give to others is to be in complete alignment with these values. The more in alignment we are the more likely we are to expand into a level of success that reaches far beyond simply the outward evidence of success. It applies to virtually every area of our life.

Lynne Klippel
So many entrepreneurs struggle.  They can be tempted by greed to cut corners, mis- represent things, or hurt others in an effort to get to the top.  Life and business is so much more fulfilling when a business owner can work from a place of integrity and respect.  As our world changes, we are called to shift to a more positive and conscious approach to everything we do.  Align, Expand and Succeed provides a road map of how we can make that shift in our business and in our life

    Thank you Deb and Mynders for sharing our message about the book! I love the phrase” soft disciplines” as it beautifully portrays the way we develop our conscious business and then share our messages with those in our target market. In times of so much change over the past few years we have been stretched and challenged to find new ways of relating as well as going inward to honing not so new ways so that we convey values that are true to us and reflect a modern and fresh approach to serving others.

    Many blessings,
    Jennifer Shaw

    What fabulous responses and as one of the co-authors on Align, Expand, Succeed I see our world changing at a great speed and we need to evolve with it and expand our perception of what is possible. Collaboration and Creating Win/Wins is the way forward.
    Working with integrity and authenticity is the hallmark of a Conscious Entrepreneur to build great relationships with clients and colleagues alike. Collaboration is key in the 21st century if we are to truly thrive. Thank you Suzanne

    As we all grow in our business, we have the opportunity to grow personally as well by moving past our own limitations. Being able to say YES to growth is an important part of being a conscious entrepreneur.
