Trusting yourself in your non-diet business is critical if you want to change the way you do business.
If the answers aren’t outside of you, they are within you – just like intuitive eating taught you. This is exactly why I created the 10 principles of non-oppressive business. These principles will shift the power from other people back to yourself.
TRUSTING YOURSELF IN YOUR NON-DIET BUSINESS: THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF NON-OPPRESSIVE BUSINESS
#1 Reject Oppressive Business Culture
Just like you teach your clients to reject diet culture, you need to reject oppressive business culture.
#2 Honour Your Knowing
Honouring your knowing is much like honouring your hunger in that you ultimately know what to do in your business. If you can trust your innate wisdom and intuition around food, you can do it in your business too.
#3 Challenge the “Normal” Business Rules
Your work is to become comfortable feeling uncomfortable. Challenging the “normal” rules of oppressive business culture is how you’re going to create results in your business.
#4 Respect Your Clients’ Agency
Trust that your clients can make the decision of what’s right or wrong for them. You need to believe that your clients can trust their innate wisdom too.
#5 How I Am Being First, How I Am Doing Second
The way you think, believe and talk about yourself as a business owner directly influences the energy behind your actions. Pause, question, and choose how you are being before adjusting what you’re doing.
#6 Selling is an Exchange of Value
First and foremost, you need to make money. Not only that, you also need to WANT to make money. Ethical business is an exchange of value; you cannot give stuff away and not expect value (i.e. money) back.
#7 Honour Your Desires
You have to tap into what you desire in your business. Most importantly, ensure that you are being guided by your true desires (rooted in non-oppressive business) versus your false desires (rooted in oppressive business culture).
#8 Respect Yourself
Every decision must move you towards your goals, and being respectful of you. This includes taking care of the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual parts of your being.
#9 Radical Self-Responsibility
Radical self-responsibility is NOT blaming, shaming, or criticizing yourself. It comes from a place where you can evaluate with self-respect and have your own back.
#10 Believe in Your Possibility
You have to wake up every day and believe that it is possible for YOU to have the business that you desire. You cannot force, hustle, or hate yourself to your desired business, just like you cannot force, hustle, or hate your clients into a healthy relationship with food and body.
You need to have an unwavering belief in your possibility – everything starts from here.
Ultimately, trusting your knowing is what will guarantee success in your non-diet business.
