In this episode of the Business Owner Breakthrough Podcast, hosted by Pete Mohr, we kick off a 10-part series called the “10 Pillars of Purposeful Leadership.” Today, we delve into the first pillar: “Purpose and Passion.”
Here are a few things Pete covers:
- Purpose, often referred to as your “why,” is the driving force behind your business. It’s more than just making money; it’s about the impact and transformation you aim to achieve.
- Passion, the emotional drive that gets you out of bed, fuels your excitement for your projects, and keeps you going. It’s essential to keep it aligned with your purpose.
- Purpose and passion are like a compass and speed, working together to lead you where you want to go. Losing sight of one can lead to burnout and setbacks.
- Successful businesses, like Tesla and TOMS Shoes, are built on a strong foundation of purpose and passion, making a meaningful impact.
- To find your “why,” ask simple questions: Why did you start your business? What impact do you want to make? Who do you want to serve? Keep your purpose aligned with your evolving business.
It’s time to take action:
After listening to this episode, take a moment to reflect on your business’s purpose. Ask yourself these questions and refine your purpose if needed. Create a visual representation, such as a vision board or three-word description, to keep your purpose clear and aligned with your passion. Share it with your team, suppliers, and clients to ensure everyone understands your vision.
Remember, clarity of purpose and passion can be the catalyst for your business’s success and fulfillment. Keep aligning them, and watch your business thrive.
