Soulful business consulting services and educational tools to build businesses worldwide. Make your business fit your life and values.
I'm Ximena Santibañez, I fell in love with Economics when I was in high school. I know, it's not something you would have imagined. However, as I learned more about the basics of economics I started questioning much of the theory. I graduated from college, and decided not to get higher education in my field. Why? Because I thought economists were wasting their time. They kept working on theory, while leaving aside the reality of a world where things were not as they presented them.
I walked away from Economics, without ever really leaving it behind. My mind was used to seeing the big picture, relationships and interactions that show the causes and effects of personal choice, actions, and business. I used this mindset in natural disaster assessment, consulting, business strategies, and social media growth. After many years, I'm going back to calling myself an economist, because I know that it wasn't economics that failed. It was us who didn't adjust the parameters for it to succeed.
I know for a fact that people can build great businesses without selling their souls, or losing their essence. The bottom-line isn't profit, it is value. And our value is key to the business strategies we develop. Change is a constant in the new business world, and that also means we need to become very creative in our approach. We need to see the big picture, and develop specific and achievable strategies. Whether it is product development, marketing strategies, or sales, creativity is key. That's why I apply new principles of what I call "Love Economics" that I have seen succeed in businesses worldwide.
New business mindset - soulful business consulting
The new business mindset is all about soulful businesses. Regardless of what you may think, this is not a utopic approach. If you take a look at the most successful brands nowadays, they do not just sell a product, they sell a lifestyle. The key elements for a business to succeed nowadays include:
- Collaboration: Forget about a system where you have to be mindful of your competition. Collaboration will allow more growth, success, and opportunities for you. Regardless of the industry and market you want to reach.
- Sustainability: Developing clean, fair, and overall sustainable ingredients, items, and products is no longer an option. It is a must. And by the way, it makes you qualify for better credit, qualifications, alliances and growth opportunities.
- Social impact: Whatever your product or service, it must align with personal growth. Happy and skilled people working together to serve others and improve the quality of life worldwide. That is true social impact.
- Creativity: The best way to find solutions for any problem is to think outside the box. Bringing together diverse views, business experience, world views, and integrating new resources and existing successful techniques.
