WHAT IS IKIGAI?
A japenese concept meaning
"A reason for being."
How does this relate to my business?
An IKIGAI Diagram shows the intersection where your passions and talents converge with the things that the world needs and is willing to pay for.
And yes, you MUST know this, or your business could suffer. It's like walking around blind AND not having a destination. It gives you direction. And purposeful direction at that.
And, It sounds complicated, but it's not.
I advise all of my clients to utilize this tool. YES, it's actually SUPER CRUCIAL FOR YOUR BUSINESS FOUNDATION.
All you have to do is fill out your strengths, passions, etc and the revelations about your business will be transformative! (Yes, I give you directions.)
The Ikigai diagram is like those Venn Diagrams you enjoyed in school (haha!) It gives you a much-needed framework and you will be so happy you did it!
It will give you that peace of knowing you are doing the right thing, and the reason to keep pursuing your dreams. And it gives you clarity on things you should and shouldn't be doing yourself. (Yes, some business tasks you will need to get help with!)
You can even keep it out to remind yourself of your business purpose, and you can always fill it out again at a later time if you experience business changes
I'm so in love with Ikigai - and so excited to get to share it with you! It's the missing piece for many small businesses. Somehow many overlook this important realization and reasoning.
