Mirror Living is a truth-seeking lover of reality, a group facilitator, writer, expert marketer, and an ukulele playing cat lover. She is also a trained facilitator in the work of Byron Katie and is deeply devoted to any practice that takes us from the head to the beauty of our heart.
In today’s interview, Mirror shares with us how she created her heart-based and donation-based business after much struggle and soul searching. She also teaches us how to find our own inner alignment, and why being aligned is crucial to growing a successful business.
It is very difficult, if not impossible, to grow a business from a place of desperation.
When we have a sense of time and spaciousness, we will find a way that works for us to create a structure that brings us enough income doing what we love.
It’s about the inner alignment and what peace we can find now. Then we can take action from that place.
Ok, universe, ok, divine…if I am meant to be in business, than help me. Maybe this is partly your place as well. It’s not all about little me. I am fallible, I am human, and I have failed. If I am meant to be here, show me the way.
It hasn’t left me ever since, this ability to play with the energies of life and not to take everything so personally. To not believe that because things don’t seem to be working, that they are not working.
Building community around what we do, to because it is a marketing strategy, but because we have a real human need of connection, and because it combats our western condition of lifetimes of isolation and separation.
My conversation with Mirror was so thought-provoking. She is so right, we desperately need more connection and community here in the Western world, and yet we use our social media to market and sell. Now, I do not think that there is anything wrong with conducting business and promoting yourself and your message via social media, but there is something missing in our culture and mindset. Something that we are lacking and causing so many of us to be lonely and isolated. I think that I will start reaching out more to old friends, and truly valuing the people in my life. The kindness shown to me from my clients and from my neighbors at my local coffee shop, the love I feel from my family and friends….that is where the real treasure lies.
