Money is to your business as Qi is to the human body. In other words, money is the life giving essence of your practice.
Just as life cannot exist without Qi, your business can not exist without money.
Stick with me here – In Chinese Medicine Qi is the circulating life energy force inherent in all things. Chinese Medicine seeks to balance Qi in order to promote “harmony” in the body, mind and spirit (i.e. promote good health).
Business has a similar life energy force – money/cash/moola. Money is the source of vital energy in your business. Business people say “cash is king.” If you don’t have cash you are out of business. Cash flow is what keeps the business operating. Thus, we can rightly say that cash is the Qi of your business. So if you want to promote harmony in your business you need to stimulate the cash flow.
You went into the healing profession to provide health and wellness to people – to make a difference in the lives of your patients and clients. Many health and wellness professionals would rather not focus on money – “just let me grow my business by being good, my results will speak for themselves.”
However, you are not just a wellness practitioner – you are also a small business owner.
There are many ways to cultivate the Qi of your business (money/cash/moola) without “selling out.” You can operate a business without being greedy. And, yes, you can operate a business without cashing in on your morals!
