We Have a Problem with Business

We’ve got to stop with the blame.

We’ve got to stop blaming ‘business’, aka money, for the world’s problems. ‘Business’ is not a dirty word. Yes, some businesses selfishly seek profits at the expense of their consumers, workers, community and environment but not all. To make a sweeping statement about ‘business’, to reject money as an evil, it makes no sense. It completely ignores how the world actually works. Business and money make the world go round (not literally but figuratively). It propels the community.

You can’t escape it, you can’t deny it.

You need it.

Love money.

It’s okay to want it. It’s okay if it motivates you. It should.

Being an innerpreneur is about making money too. It’s People, Planet, Profit. You get to win too. You deserve to be compensated for the good work you do. So make it a priority. It doesn’t make you, or your business, any less creative, holistic or helpful. It doesn’t make you any less passionate.

The reality is humans use money to show appreciation and support, and it is just as valid an expression as words. So let it pour over you.

Business is the solution.

Our innerpreneurial dreams hold the answers to a lot of the world’s problems. But they’ll remain dreams if we don’t root them in reality. Money is necessary to sustain a business. The distinction between being good and making money needs to be removed.

Welcome abundance into your life in all its forms. Money’s only dirty if you treat it that way.
