We’re peeling back the layers of what it means to be not just a business owner but becoming an enlightened leader in today’s ever-evolving world. We’re excited to map out the series ahead, exploring the psychology that drives entrepreneurial success and the spiritual growth that can coexist and thrive alongside it. 

Taking cues from both Maslow’s hierarchy and Jung’s theories, we’ll dive into the importance of transcending the ego for self-actualization and touching upon those transcendental needs. In this episode, we discuss:

  • Individuation and our purpose beyond survival
  • Debra’s entrepreneurial journey
  • The four persona types most people fall into
  • Transcendence and true success

It’s one of my favorite topics, and one that is often misunderstood, not really discussed in polite circles. One that is really near and dear to our hearts because it’s our personal journey. We’re going to be talking about what it means for us to be entrepreneurs and how we incorporate our spirituality into it.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve been an entrepreneur. You and I have been working together, starting this company ten years ago. We’ve trained hundreds and hundreds of coaches in our training, they become entrepreneurs. We started off teaching about love and relationships. As we started applying these principles and teaching them, we realized a lot of our clients were professionals, they were applying the same principles in business. We were applying on ourselves the CreativeMind Method, which we develop based on Jungian theory, Eastern philosophy, and neuroscience. It’s a unique approach to Jungian psychology and Eastern philosophy in a coaching model. We use the work that we teach every single day in our business. We thought: Why don’t we share some of our learnings, what we’ve experienced in being around other entrepreneurs and what we witnessed? What can go wrong if you don’t do your own inner work?
