Business from the inside out

They’re All Going to Laugh At You

by | Sep 17, 2009 | Innerpreneurship


It scares me to stand behind the word Innerpreneur.

As much as it connects me to you, and encompasses my views on business, life and everything in between, I am conscious of how the word, a word that references that which is within us, appears to others.

Do you experience the smirks?

Perhaps in your social life spirituality is an open topic but in mine it is not. Reading this blog is more a window into my soul than most people get. Me, in person, unless I sense that you are open to it, you will only catch a glimpse of my spirit. It just isn’t something I share openly. I don’t like the smirks and whether it is wrong or right, I have no desire to share such an important piece of my Self with someone who is not open to it.

Business as a spiritual practice? Seriously?

In my life business and money are talked of ad nauseum but usually not in the way I see them. Seriously Tara, who cares about creating meaning when you can make more money? Score another smirk for me.

To put business and spirituality together – to speak about my spirituality openly and build my business around it, well… I feel open to mockery. And I am. And it scares me.

But whether I like it or not, no matter how traditional, less “hippie” people view it, the meaning behind the word Innerpreneur — it is my truth. And it will still be there with me whether I use this word or another.
