How to use your philosophy to succeed at business
Environmental Values and ethics can even be a help your business !
My organic and natural living philosophy is how my Hubbard, Ohio business got started and what is making it even stronger.
Also, doing my best to be a good person and set a good example for my kids is important to me as well.
Podcast of an interview of how I use my strong philosophy in my business and why it works for me
September 21, 2010
I was asked to be interviewed about this topic by Kate herself. The interview took place on the date above in the morning. It was about how I combine my business and my desire for natural living... for a podcast.
It takes a few minutes to load as it is a long one, but here it is:
A Jumping-Off Point Radio Show with Guest Diana Burrell-Shipton
I didn't mess up too badly. Kate is an awesome interviewer. She makes you very comfortable and relaxed - the rest was easy !
Be true to your ideals...
at home, at work, at play...
I have a little gift shop in Hubbard, Ohio that features my handmade and natural products as well as having several other vendors.
We reduce/reuse/recycle and even get my customers and the other store keepers in our little plaza involved in the effort !
If you ever in the area, stop by.
Are you true ?
Do you try to live by what you say ?
Would your friends and family agree ?
All of us will fail sometimes, but overall do you live up to your own standards and try to help others along the way too ?
Business life, as in other aspects of our life, has to be real. Folks will notice it if you say one thing and do another.
Again, none of us are perfect, but if you are doing what you believe in - you will have a better life both socially and in business too.
Be honest with yourself too...
...and make sure that you can sustain your business...
...by making sure that you really love what you do and can "pay" yourself with satisfaction in a job well done... because it will likely take a few years to make sure that you can pay yourself with actual money :)
Also, do you like people and care about meeting their needs ?
If not, maybe you shouldn't be in business for yourself - having to promote yourself and your business and have to deal with the public.
