The F Word (Your Business is F***** Without It)

By the F word, I mean fun.

FUN is a business tool.

Is this you?

When I signed up for my MLM business, I had zero business knowledge and overwhelming excitement & energy!

Somewhere along the way, I lost sight of my excitement. I started going through the motions like I was in a tailspin. Even though I knew what to do, there was a cloud over my head. I forced everything like it was a chore. Then I found myself burnt out and unfulfilled. I just felt stuck.

100% of my focus was on business, and I still dropped in rank and income. The passion, energy, and excitement were gone.

I faked a smile for weeks at a time without realizing that it was obvious (hint: People’s bullshit meter is super high).

I was stuck because I wasn't having fun.

Ever felt this way? Like you'll be happy when you finally get to an outcome. Let me save you some time: No you won't.

Joy is a prerequisite to success!

(By success, I don’t just mean in financial terms. I mean emotionally successful)

JOY is how you get there.

Here’s how you have to think about this:

  • Building a business from a state of exhaustion and stress -->
  • Low energy and lack of resourcefulness -->
  • Productivity sucks -->
  • Bad results -->
  • More stress and exhaustion.

I lived this downward spiral. This isn't just how you are.

You’re not broken, and nobody needs to fix you.

Happiness is trainable. And happiness is how you create success.

I turned this around in 3 ways:

1.) Unplug Regularly

You can't pour from an empty cup.

I was obsessed with my business. If you have your focus on your business 24/7, you aren’t inspiring anyone. You’re telling them to run the opposite direction because they can feel that you don’t have a life.

Your solution is straightforward: Work less

Completely unplug. Shut the computer down. Turn the phone off. Be present with those you love.

You aren't too busy for the people that you’re busy for.

Business is 1 part of your life. Not your whole life. Never make the mistake of getting too busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Your relationships are more important than your business.

When was the last time you did something for you? When was the last time you took an entire day unplugged?

To speed up, you have to slow down. You need to take care of YOU. You need to start having fun again in your life.

Burn out will go away. You’ll feel recharged. You’ll start to bring ENERGY back to your business and your life.

Have some fun. Recharge YOUR batteries so you can charge other people’s batteries. I promise you this works.

2.) Use Your Inspirations As A Business Tool

Step into the common sense corner for a second: It's impossible to inspire someone if you’re not inspired.

Place your focus on what inspires YOU.

What part of your business fascinates you? What topics do you love learning about? What items do you enjoy sharing? What topics would share for free because it excites you so much?

LEAD. WITH. THAT.

Study it. Learn it. Teach it. You learn best when you teach what you need to learn.

All of a sudden, you’ll have no problem bringing value to the world. It’ll flow out of you. Nothing will feel forced.

When you’re fascinated with something, you have fun doing it, right?

And when you have fun, people can feel you, right?

And since you love talking about this topic, it'll be fun, right?

Fun is a prerequisite to your business growing, right?

Do you follow me here?

The cliche, "Your vibe attracts your tribe." is a cliche for a reason. When you focus on what you love, your vibe is higher, and you attract people that feel the same instead of forcing things.

You'll be living your passion instead of faking your business.

3.) Connect To Something Bigger

What feels more fun to you?

A.) I own an online course about mindset.

B.) I’m on a mission to teach people how to finally be happy so they can break through ALL the negative self-talk holding them back from their dreams. And I do it with an incredible online mindset course called, "Appreciation Academy" where I can pour myself into helping my clients!

Which is more passionate?
Which is more exciting?
Which is more fun?

If you don’t connect with a more significant purpose of who you’re serving, your energy drains. I lived it.

You’re on a personal growth journey, right? What’s the purpose of personal growth? To live a fulfilling life.

But what ACTUALLY fulfills you most in life?

Is it when you get things? Is it when you create a big business? Is it when you earn a certain amount of money? No. You feel the most alive when you give to other people. What would fill your cup more?

Receiving a $1,000 check in the mail.
Donating $1,000 worth of food to a kid who doesn't have a next meal.

Obviously the latter.

You're on a personal growth journey so you can give more.

You grow so you can give.

If you connect to a higher purpose of what you do, you’ll feel more fulfilled than ever. You’ll bleed passion and people will feel the love flowing from everything you share.

When that happens, every part of life become FUN again. Your business catches fire again because people know you do this for a purpose more significant than just you.

So if you want to build a big business, connect to a higher purpose of what you do.


My life exploded when I applied these 3 strategies.

People can feel my energy.
My passion is back.
I feel ALIVE every day.

When you feel ALIVE, you become magnetic. You hear the term abundance get thrown around in my industry a lot. What does that mean?

Abundance means that you love the life you currently have and you’re so excited about what you’ll create.

Living in abundance takes away financial trouble. More importantly, abundance brings you emotional freedom. That’s real wealth.

And wouldn’t you agree that:

  1. Recharging your batteries and having fun again
  2. Inspiring yourself and sharing it with the world
  3. Connecting to a higher purpose of what you do

...puts you in a state of absolute abundance?

This is how to have more FUN in your life and your business.

And FUN is how your business will actually build.

Slow down, take a breath, and smile.

Because smiling is how great businesses are built.
