Julie Perkins: Nurturing Joyful Business Growth through Self-Awareness
In this episode of Joy Found Here, host Stephanie Martinez Rivera had the pleasure of speaking with Julie Perkins, a remarkable entrepreneur who has embarked on a transformative journey of self-discovery. Join them as they delve into Julie’s insights on self-awareness, values-driven business, and the art of joyful growth.
Defining Values and Skills for Present Work
One of the key takeaways from this conversation with Julie is the importance of defining our values and skills to be fully present in our work. By understanding ourselves on a deeper level, we can align our passions with our business endeavours, enabling us to thrive in our chosen path.
Assessing Your Role and Making Yourself Redundant
Entrepreneurs must constantly assess their role in their businesses and strive to make themselves redundant. By doing so, they can position themselves on a new wave of growth, fostering innovation and allowing their businesses to flourish even further.
Female Entrepreneurs and Early Maturity
Female entrepreneurs often exhibit early maturity in their businesses, which can inadvertently limit their growth. Julie emphasises the need to address this issue, as it holds back brilliant ideas from reaching the community. By ensuring a longer runway of business growth, we can empower female entrepreneurs to unleash their full potential.
Translating Values into Company Culture
Understanding our own values and effectively translating them into our company’s values is a vital aspect of entrepreneurial success. Julie passionately advocates for aligning personal and business values, creating a harmonious environment where both thrive and support each other.
Simplifying for Joyful Business Growth
To achieve joyful business growth, it is crucial to simplify and let go of things that no longer serve the business. This includes shedding outdated strategies and, at times, parting ways with team members who are no longer aligned with the company’s direction. By doing so, entrepreneurs can pave the way for new opportunities and fresh perspectives.
The Power of Vision Statements
Julie encourages entrepreneurs to focus on their vision statements as a means of gaining clarity and eliminating unnecessary strategies. This exercise helps streamline efforts, ensuring that every action aligns with the overarching purpose and direction of the business.
Leaving Space for Reflection and Growth
While staying present is essential, it is equally important to leave room for reflection and exploration beyond the daily tasks. By carving out this valuable space, entrepreneurs can foster personal and professional growth, nurturing their creativity and allowing new ideas to flourish.
Communicating with Confidence and Clarity
Communicating what you do with confidence and clarity is another important aspect of entrepreneurial success. Julie highlights that authentic and natural communication attracts others to your vision, making it easier for like-minded individuals to join your cause and contribute to its realisation.
Accepting Lack of Control and Being Present
Julie learned a valuable lesson during her cancer treatment – the realisation that control is an illusion. For female business owners, accepting this truth and staying present in the moment is vital. By embracing the uncertainty, they can navigate challenges with grace and resilience, focusing on what truly matters.
