How Are Yoga and Business Development Connected?…

Many people ask me, “why are you focused on two so seemingly different concentrations?”

Business Development Strategy and Implementation and Yoga?

Most businesses want to grow but are stuck in negative patterns that don’t serve them. Many have a lot of ideas about how to grow, but they get stuck figuring out how to implement the ideas, or track the ROI, or stay disciplined in the execution, or be good team-mates. Many professionals have negative mind chatter about their individual capabilities or their organizations capabilities/strengths. Many people quite simply don’t know how to talk about themselves or their organizations in ways that resonate with who they are trying to sell to. I could go on an on about where and how people and businesses get stuck.

Most people view yoga as solely physical postures, or a way to get flexible. Sure, one of the eight limbs of yoga is Asana – physical postures. One of eight.

Yoga is really a way of life. It’s a life practice. It’s beautiful and I hope more people get a glimpse of it’s true essence.

My areas of concentration are perfectly related. I could not do what I do for my (biz dev) clients without a strong, disciplined yoga practice. Yoga allows me to see more clearly at the root level.

It’s easy for me to see opportunities and challenges – but it’s only because of my yoga practice. Similarly, through practicing and teaching yoga, I can read anyone like a book. Your body doesn’t lie. The more aware, open, focused, flexible, disciplined, intuitive you are, the more you can see true opportunities of how to better develop your business to serve your clients. Mind chatter slows down, intuition unfolds. Weed out what doesn’t serve you. Surrender to what’s possible.

Go do yoga – and Go Grow!
