10-Reasons Conscious Business is Different
10-Reasons Conscious Business is Different
Conscious Business is an entirely new paradigm of social dynamics and resource exchange. It takes the principle of Sacred Economics & Commerce and applies them to our creative endeavors. However, many people aren’t aware of how Conscious Business is different from the regular ole’ rigmarole of business. As we attempt to shift paradigms at an accelerated rate, I think it sure helps to have some clarification about how this new way of doing things is indeed new and different
Marketing Has to be Authentic
The days of unethical persuasion and manipulation to extract money from the unsuspecting consumer is over. People are more conscious of their lives, needs and wants more than ever before. They are making less impulsive purchase decisions, deciding what do they really need right now. It’s becoming a highly-custom & specific marketplace. If you are inauthentic in your marketing and message, people will see right through you and no one will believe you. Be authentic and express your integrity doing what you love, and you will excel in marketing and Conscious Business.
Choices Have to be Sustainable
Sustainability should be your vetting process of decision making. Ask yourself: Does this choice promote betterment in the World and is it ecologically sound? Your creations should take in consideration the Whole. Holistic principles are integral to Conscious Business.
We have Native Americans to thank for this long-term perspective toward business. Don’t just think about your customers or clients in the present moment. Think about how your offerings will affect their children and their children’s children. Utilize the wisdom of your ancestors in asking yourself if what you are doing is ethical. Be conscious of the 7-Generations which came before you & the 7-Generations which follow.
Innovation & Evolution is Factored-In
Things are changing faster than ever, and the evolution of branding, marketing and user-experience have to be considered. 70% of the careers which will be available in the next 5-years don’t even exist yet. The way people will interact with your business is going to constantly change with the advents of technology. Make sure you are staying current and taking into consideration the evolution of technology for your business.
Every Exchange is Sacred
Conscious Business acknowledges that everything is sacred. There is nothing which exists outside the sacred vessel of existence, it’s all contained within the holographic bubble of reality. Thus, no thing is greater than any other thing, and thus all must be acknowledged as sacred, precious and valued with sincerity.
Complexity is the No. 1 Challenge
Complexity is top-challenge of all major businesses, and everything you endeavor to create will continue to take-on spiraling complexity. We must learn to account, manage and simplify complexity.
Lifestyle is the Measure of Success
Long gone are the days where the numbers in your bank account dictate your level of success. Our generation is more driven to live a healthy, happy, adventurous life rather than accumulating & sequestering wealth. A vibrant lifestyle has become the qualifier of our success.
Risk Extends Beyond Economics
Risk has a new set of factors. What you stand to gain or lose isn’t just economical, it’s environmental and cultural. Brand engagement can be extremely challenging these days, and the biggest risk we have is in not maintaining healthy relationships with those we do business with.
Spiritually Guided Business Decisions
Trying to make ego-based business decisions and failing to achieve results? Well, welcome to the new paradigm. We are being asked to be informed by our higher-selves, guides and higher-callings in the micro-decisions and actions we take. Conscious Business is done through the act of listening and then acting, rather than reacting to circumstances.
Gaia is Our Priority
Conscious Business acknowledges that our planet is a sentient and conscious entity. We are thus the stewards of this precious planet, the beneficial bacteria hear to create thriving ecological ecosystems for the evolution of all creatures upon it. The Earth isn’t a resource library for us to take advantage of, it’s a gentle and sacred creature we must revel in high-regard, and every exchange we make in business must be in consideration of her. She has a voice for those who listen.
