The more experienced I’ve become as a transformative coach, the more clearly I’ve seen that ‘spirituality’ is an essential ingredient for personal transformation and happiness. It can also be beneficial for building a successful business.

If you’re a spiritual person, you have likely thought about how to merge your spirituality with your business. After all, what could be more fulfilling than using your spiritual gifts to help others and make money at the same time?

But if you’re an entrepreneur, have you ever thought that your business might benefit from incorporating spirituality?

I don’t know who coined the term “spiritual entrepreneur,” but when I read this for the first time, I thought it was the best thing I’d ever heard.

When I was a banker for 25 years, you could say that I denounced my spirituality. It wasn’t until much later that I even realized this had happened.

I worked in a competitive environment where I was striving for deals, money, and bonuses. I wasn’t happy, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was wrong. After all, I was earning an excellent salary, had climbed the corporate ladder, and my career was thriving. But something was lacking in my life.

When I later re-trained as a therapist and transformative coach, I was finally pursuing my passion. But at first, I never dreamed of using the word ‘spiritual” in connection with any programs I offered.

However, over time, I realized that spirituality is a very useful, if not essential, element for personal transformation and success in business. I now know this is what was missing during my 25 years as a banker when everything I did was ego-driven.

What do we mean by ‘spirituality’?

Spirituality is not about religion or dogma. It’s about connection, love, compassion, wisdom, truth, authenticity, power, peace, joy, and abundance. It’s about living from your highest self and making a difference in the world.

Spirituality is simply a connection to something larger than ourselves. It’s the connective tissue…
