Mindful Business? What’s that? I get that question a lot, and frankly, it depends on what it means to the person doing business! Can we bring the concepts of gratitude, compassion, generosity and attention to our businesses? Of course we can, and building a business that incorporates these qualities into the culture makes for happy customers, happy employees and a sense of integrity that you just can’t buy. Whether the business is is marketing, sales, product development or service based makes no difference. Don’t we all want to feel we are working for an organization that adds value? We want to feel good about the company we work for as well as our own roles in that company. We want to feel like we are human!
This week’s guest is Allie Stark. Allie is a mindfulness-based wellness coach and health consultant. Through her work, she inspires her clientele to take risks and redefine what it means to be human. Allie uses her experience with illness as an opportunity to ask the big questions and have the hard conversations. She believes that courage, self-compassion, and vulnerable expression are the foundation of optimal health and well-being. She knows that saying no to something or someone else, often means saying yes to yourself. She believes in the power of gratitude, compassionate communication and building integrity-filled relationships as a means for overcoming persistent pain and illness. She understands chronic health to include self-knowing, self-acceptance and self-love.
