Adding Joy To Your Business Plan - EP 55


“We should be in charge of how we spend our days... If we’re feeling not lit up, not excited to get out of bed in the morning, there’s things that we can do about that.”

—  Lianne Kim


Is seeking joy part of your business plan? Because it should be.


Seeking the joy in running our businesses helps us to deal with the ups and downs, the stresses, and the challenges that inevitably pop up on our entrepreneurial journeys. 


My guest for this episode, Lianne Kim, is the author of Building a Joyful Business, which teaches how to create an inspiring vision for your business and build a living based on your passions and strengths, along with practical advice for introducing ease into the less joyful parts of your business.  


“As entrepreneurs, I think we can find our business is running away with itself, and we forget that we are in charge of everything we do in our business, from how we work to who we work with, to when we do that work, they energy that we bring — that all comes from the inside out,” Lianne explains. “I hear women say things like ‘I have to do it this way’ or ‘isn’t this the right way?’ and it’s funny that we assert ourselves and we make the leap to start a business, but very quickly we start to do what we think is expected of us, as opposed to what we want to be doing.”


So, what do YOU want to be doing?
