Monday Morning Inspiration for Women Entrepreneurs

July 13, 2015

Business inspiration and wisdom for women entrepreneurs

I began this Monday morning listening to another inspirational meditation series produced by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. I have some history with Oprah which inspired this start to my day.

In 1999, after watching one of the Oprah Winfrey shows on daily morning meditations, I started using them as a way to calm my mind as my two young sons still slept and before I tried to juggle the demands of a stay-at-home working mother and entrepreneur. I found the best way to focus on the priorities of the day was meditation. It has worked for me ever since and even landed me on Oprah’s show via taped video in October 1999 (my big claim to fame).

My sons now rumble off to corporate jobs and graduate school instead of playing trucks at my feet as I manage events or public relations for clients. My days are more open and quiet now allowing me abundant free time to create, plan and manage my 20 year business. The one component that has stayed the same even as my sons and businesses have grown is starting my day listing business priorities and then listening to meditations to quiet my mind as I embark on another wondrous entrepreneurial day.

If you are like every other hard working woman entrepreneur I know who struggles to balance quiet personal time with an overwhelming amount of duties, I suggest you stop right now and take only 15 minutes for yourself to reflect. You can turn on beautiful meditation music on YouTube, say a rosary, sit outside in nature just taking in your surroundings or take a 15 minute walk up the street.

Whatever peaceful, centering activity you decide to do will give you more abundant free space in your mind and spirit, and help you set the agenda for the rest of your day. In order to be our most productive business self means turning off the deluge of thoughts for a small amount of time for solitude and peaceful thinking.

I hope you find this Monday Motivation something useful on this beautiful summer day filled with an abundance of business duties.

    There is no doubt that people, especially women, need to carve out some time for themselves. I tend to read or use my stepper to get in some much needed exercise as both of these tend to relax me. But meditation sounds like it works perfectly for you!

    Kimberly – I too love reading and exercising during my day. i tend to do that in the middle or end of my day when my mind gets too full of business details. The morning meditation is something that can really open up your thinking in a much different way than the other two. Maybe you’d like to try it for a week and see what happens. Thank you for your comments. Tracy
