Creativity & Entrepreneurship: The Secret to Discovering Your Purpose in Life!©
Hello Creative Entrepreneurs!
In the second course on Creativity & Entrepreneurship we begin with a guided meditation that I created entitled: Dream Keeper-Gift Giver©. You ask: what in the world does this mean? Well, it's a very profound secret I discovered about myself fifteen years ago. After doing a lot of self-discovery and embarking on a long vision quest to heal the hurts of my childhood and past, in search of my true self; my authentic self and to try to figure out what my purpose on this earth was.
I was also seeking my own understanding of God, our creator. You may call him (or her) a Higher Being, a Higher Power or Creative Intelligence. In this search, that still unfolds every day, I discovered many, many things.
But what I bring to this course is one of the unique things I learned about myself and my own spirit and the limitless depths of my creativity and personal power. I learned that the child within was alive and well. And so is yours.
Remember when you were a kid and had so many dreams? You were going to be a dancer, a policeman, an astronaut, a doctor, a scientist, a teacher, an actor, an artist. Remember you were going to conquer the world? Remember how fearless you were? How fearless we all were? Remember when you were a young entrepreneur? Be it President and CEO of your own lemonade stand, or a door-to-door salesman selling Girl Scout cookies or Christmas candy for your school.
Yes, those were entrepreneurial endeavors. You had, or created a product. You created a store-front or went door-to-door. You set your price, you advertised by hanging you little sign on the table, you promoted it usually by word of mouth, and you received a payment. Maybe a profit too if you were lucky and didn't eat or drink all the profits. But above all you had fun! You interacted with people, proved you were a good sales person and built self-confidence and self-esteem. Remember how happy it made you?
You see that child is the dreamer and the keeper of your dreams. As we grew older we lost touch with that precious and sacred child. It's easy to do. Some of us became disconnected from our child-spirit because of childhood, trauma or abuse or fear. Perhaps your parents divorced, or there wasn't enough food to eat. Perhaps we lost a loved one or there was physical or psychological abuse. Perhaps you were put-down all the time. Perhaps you had a learning disability. The list can go on and one. Each one of us is different.
But what we all have in common is all of us were programmed and conditioned by our families, our schools, our religion, or society in general. As we grew older, we went off on another path-from the original dreams we had--most likely we went down a path that someone else chose, or paved, for us.
Most of us have simply forgotten that child-spirit because of everyday stresses like children to feed and educate; bills to pay or debt, which brings so much fear and bondage that we can't even think straight, so how could we possibly remember our original dreams, our child-spirit?
And now, today, the state of the world, as projected into our lives is so violent, so chaotic and fear-based than many of us have become numb, or worse, paralyzed by fear. This is the intent: to separate you from your own divine spirit, your pure spirit, your child-spirit from what is real, and true, and pure.
I could go on and on about this, but I think you understand what I'm saying.

The Desire For Money, Do You Have Business Sense?
For those of us who grew up with parents who worked for businesses rather than owned them, the world of business can be quite a mystery. Even more so if we've dared to try to start one of our own. There is the factor of what type of business to start - a product or service business. There are the issues of doing a good market analysis, licensing the business, understanding the codes of law governing businesses, and determining just what type of business structure to choose - especially if the business will have employees. For example, should we start a sole proprietorship or a corporate business? It's a lot to work on, and it's not an overnight process to the road of success. But, the most crucial challenge to whether a business succeeds or fails lies deep within the realm of emotional versus financial intelligence.

How Much Risk is Necessary to Grow Your Business?
A business owner is thoroughly responsible for their own financial survival and possibly the financial survival of their employees. Business owners, for the most part, seem to be "risk takers", who really don't easily "go with the flow". They are inventive and somewhat confident, as just having their own business does mandate that they possess these qualities.
Opportunity Does Not Knock
Q: I'm graduating this year with a degree in business and would like to start my own business rather than get a corporate job. I have a few business ideas, but none of them really gets me excited.

Sadly, these people are often the ones that love you the most; your family, friends, partners and even work colleagues.

Hello Creative Entrepreneurs!
Rambling Confessions of a Recovering Entrepreneur

What had taken me 25 years to accept, they had known for years.My wife detected my addiction as early as our honeymoon in Paris.

Differentiation Strategies for Franchise Companies
With the growing number of franchise offerings recently it is difficult for the smallest franchise companies to compete. They generally do not have the advertising budgets to pick and choose which markets the franchise prospects will be calling from. Many rely solely on Internet Marketing; unfortunately 80% of such leads are not so good. On top of this obstacle they must compete with sales departments of larger franchise companies, which have lots of experience.
