Four Attitudes For Solopreneur Women To Cultivate (video)

Four Attitudes For Solopreneur Women - Tara Nikita

I have so much respect for solopreneur women doing their own thing, solopreneur women wanting to do meaningful work and soulful business that is aligned with who they are. In this video, with the help of the Tarot, I share the four attitudes that help me to stay grounded, optimistic and psychologically stable as I run my own practice and navigate its ups and downs.

We are taught marketing, social media, list building and the works (which are all important). But we’re not necessarily taught how to work on an energetic level to thrive in our businesses. However, as solopreneur women, we have in-built into the cellular codes of our bodies certain predispositions that actually allow us to thrive in our business…if only we would use them…

Making Progress By Doing Nothing

making-progress-by-doing-nothing-tara-nikita

I love to write. I love to produce content. Love, love, love. As I sit down in front of my laptop, the words come. They flow. It’s like something or someone is pouring words into my being, and the words come through my fingertips. It’s this beautiful symbiosis of heart, mind, brain and hands.

But….

I’ve done nothing since July. I haven’t sat down to write a single post or article; I haven’t brought through the guides, I haven’t recorded a single podcast. And, guess what? It’s been one of the most strangely “productive” and fruitful periods I’ve had.

Competition Paradigms in Business: Reasons to Kick ’em to the Curb

Competition Paradigms in Business - Tara Nikita

I’ve wanted to add my two cents to this wonderful, high-vibe discussion for quite some time now: the absolute obsoleteness of conventional competition paradigms in business which take as their starting point a very bleak, brutish, quasi-Malthusian, 5 of Pentacles, scarcity-led, “get-my-slice-of-the-pie”, comparison-filled picture of reality.

Let’s begin by looking at this through a vibrational lens. Energetically speaking, competition paradigms in business which lead you to assume that everyone in your field is a competitor in a race to “MORE FOR ME”, have a most curious effect: these paradigms keep your good at bay.

Things I Learned from “Big Magic” (That You Can Learn Too)

Things I learned from Big magic

When I saw Elizabeth Gilbert’s amazing interview with Marie Forleo, I headed over to Amazon IMMEDIATELY and had Big Magic delivered to my Kindle via Amazon whispernet. (Damn you, 1-click). I knew about Gilbert’s latest book, but I wasn’t necessarily rushing to grab a copy. All that changed as soon as I saw Gilbert – in her signature down-to-earth, “let’s get real people” style – seriously debunking the myths that we hold about our creativity and creative process. Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear is Gilbert’s unique offering of her wisdom on how to pragmatically yet soulfully live a creative life.

This isn’t a review in the strictest sense. What I’ll do instead is to share the things I learned, and the things that really came alive for me when I read Big Magic, in the hopes that you get something from it too. You know what they say. No two people ever read the same book.

Mind your own (vibrational) business

heart centered biz

The heart-centred business community is populated by many wonderful people with integrity who simply want to be of service to others doing what it is they enjoy, and who intend that others be the beneficiaries of the joy that infuses their work. Those who identify themselves as part of this community (myself included) eschew sterile commercial paradigms and ‘icky’ (viz. “low vibration”) advertising/marketing techniques embedded in traditional competition ‘win or lose’ paradigms. The upshot of leaving behind “old energy” business paradigms predicated on the concept of survival is the necessity of carving out a unique business space in which a heartfelt desire to engage in mutually fulfilling interaction (whilst, of course, earning some cash) becomes paramount. The challenge here is that much readily accessible business advice and strategy is still embedded in old energy, and therefore, trying to apply these to a heart-centred business is not only vibrationally incongruous, but quite confusing for the heart-centred business owner.

Back to basics: getting clear about the intentions infusing your business

cropped-dining3.jpg

I’ve taken the last couple of weeks to really ruminate on what I want my work to reflect. Going back to basics, an inner reconnaissance. Or perhaps I should say that this inner reconnaissance has just taken off, and I’m just along for the ride – noticing my feelings, noticing my desires, noticing what makes me tick, watching the thoughts take shape about the way I can serve others in my work.

Forget business strategy now – this post isn’t about social media marketing tips, networking, branding and all that stuff. Instead, I’m inviting you on my own little getting back to basics tour – getting in touch with the fundamental intentions and approaches informing and infusing the work I do, and hoping that you too might get something from the self-indulgent process I’m about to begin here.
