Participation / Happiness

Do it! Move it! Make it happen! No one ever sat their way to success, but remember, success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get.
H. Jackson Brown (paraphrased)

As a small business coach and the author of a book on small business survival, I think that the least people would expect is that I would have some personal knowledge and experience on the subject. This is a good thing because it tests whether one is able to get beyond the theory, so to speak. One of the tests however, is not simply that one has a business, but that one is liking what business one has. And a business has a way of testing what is called “your authentic self”.

Your ‘authentic self” relates to how well your persona resonates with your business. For example, if you are against cigarettes but desire to make money from them just because that business is lucrative, then you would not be your ‘authentic self”. You will find very shallow satisfaction. But if your desire and aim are to help others, then a business that offers alternatives to cigarettes might be the thing for you. Note though, that while I do not use cigarettes, I respect the right of anyone that does, as long as I am not inconvenienced.

So, having being involved in a number of small businesses, I am excited about one that resonates very well with my “authentic self”. The business is Health Creation Industries Limited and it sells alkaline drinking water. More than my chemical business it connects with persons who have challenges or concerns about their health. You can find out more on the FaceBook page ‘alkavida alkaline water“.

Be happy and be well!
