Could Volunteering Transform Your Business?
Imagine feeling connected to your life purpose, where you feel a deep sense of contentment and inner peace.
And having a successful business completely aligned to this… a business where people readily buy what you’re offering.
When I decided to volunteer in Rwanda I had no idea just now it would change my life and my business. I’d simply been looking for an opportunity to ‘give back’ in a way that would add meaning to my life.
However doing this work has unexpectedly transformed my business too – I’ve now got amazing clients and business partners I love working with, my services are a better reflection of what’s important to me, I’ve got a great network with lots of interesting opportunities in the pipeline and I enjoy far more freedom over how I spend each day. How?
By embracing 2nd principle of Heart-Centered Success which is to ‘Make a Difference’ – to yourself, to others, your community and the world.
As well as regularly going out to Rwanda, I’ve got hooked on fundraising. And what I’ve discovered is that when I’m strategic in my approach to this, my business benefits too. In other words when I align my fundraising activities around supporting my ideal clients and business partners, what starts out as a fundraising idea often manifests into a new business opportunity too.
Again and again I hear how volunteering opens doors – one of my clients recently shared how she’d got a paid contract for work by offering to help voluntarily. And a friend has just been offered a job because of the work she’s been doing on a voluntary basis too.
Just last week I was lucky enough to have an enlightening conversation about aligning your purpose to your prosperity with Nicola Grace, who has put together a great free video training series on this. To find out more, click HERE.
Just imagine how volunteering and fundraising could transform your business too.
