Christine Kane is living proof that the answer is yes.
Far too many of us have swallowed the notion that business owners have to be a certain way to be successful—strategy-obsessed, data-driven, and relentlessly aggressive. Bookstore shelves are lined with guides for entrepreneurs that urge them to "Crush it! "10X It!" or "Unf**k it!" Those who aren't crushers or unf**kers of anything are left wondering if something's wrong with them. Like,maybe they're just not cut out for business.
A former songwriter and performer, and then founder of Uplevel YOU—a multi-million-dollar business coaching company—Christine Kane shows a new class of entrepreneurs another way. It's time to connect, not crush. In The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur, Kane shares the insights that have helped thousands find success without losing themselves.
In these pages, readers will find a practical plan to:
• Toss out ineffective, old-school goal-setting models.
• Reframe your intuition and sensitivity as valuable assets, not as flaws to hide.
• Examine old patterns for clues as to what's been holding you back.
• Clean up the spaces and distractions draining your energy and power.
• Learn to confidently trust in your own wisdom.
• Break free from fear-based decision-making that plagues most businesses.
Throughout the book, you'll hear stories from other soul-sourced entrepreneurs, who employ their own reliable, unique set of best practices based as much in intuition and self-awareness as on specific skills and strategies.
Forget business as usual. Your business is personal, and in this new era, authenticity, creativity, and sensitivity are what set businesses apart. The Soul-Sourced Entrepreneur is your unconventional plan to build the business of your dreams, and being wildly successful by being you.
