The Business of Being – Soul Purpose In and Out of the Workplace
This book isn't just about being in business; it's about the business of being. Successful business owners implement strategies that improve their prospects for success. Similarly, as human beings, it serves us well to implement guiding principles that inspire us to live our purpose and reach our goals.
The rich ganache filling that flows through the center of this book is the story of La Mandarine Bleue, a delicious depiction of how nine individuals used twelve steps of a business plan to find their vocation and undergo a transformation (with some French recipes thrown in for good measure). From a business plan and metrics to mission and goals with everything between—investors, clients and customers, marketing strategies, and goodwill development—this book clearly maps how to create personal transformation at the intersection of business and spirituality. Merging the language of business and self-help, The Business of Being will teach you how to enhance "profitability"—body, mind, and spirit.

Board Certified with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, I’m a holistic health practitioner, transformational life coach, speaker, and author.
With tremendous respect for the earth’s natural resources, my goal is to leave the slightest footprint on the planet, while at the same time making a lasting impression on its inhabitants—one that’s positive, uplifting, constructive, and healing.
A cross between Dr. Dolittle, Nanny McPhee, and a Type-A Buddhist, I’m an active listener, observer of details, payer of attention, reader and writer of books, kindness enthusiast, and unabashed optimist.
I enjoy yoga, long walks, bicycling, and photographing the great outdoors. I love laughter, red licorice, and all things Idaho. A minimalist by intent, I live a beautiful life with fewer things—simple, yet full.
