Since Bloom opened in 2004, I've sought to operate a successful business in a conscious way. I'm looking to find community with like-minded business owners for new ideas on how to continue to innovate and grow.
With the pace of life and work rapidly increasing, many business owners and their employees struggle to find time to take care of themselves. But without a proper self-care routine, there is a strong risk of burnout. I hope to influence conscious businesses in Chicago by raising awareness of the importance of self-care and the benefits of establishing a workplace culture of well-being. My goal is to provide businesses with a practical model for how to bring health and mindfulness into the workplace using tools such as simple yoga poses that can be practiced right at a desk. I believe businesses benefit when they commit to health in the workplace. In addition to reducing stress, workplace wellness programs can enhance interpersonal relationships, promote employee loyalty, and boost productivity, thus leading to a more successful business and happier people working to make it that way!
As a professional in the health and wellness field, I hope to share my knowledge of how to create manageable self-care routines to sustain even the busiest of conscious capitalists. I look forward to adding my voice to the conversation about how to approach all aspects of running a business in both a professional and conscious way.
I'm looking to make new connections with other like-minded business owners, and I hope to explore new strategies for how to continue expanding our conscious business practices so that we may not only grow but also give back to our community.
As the founder of Bloom Yoga Studio, I'm passionate about inspiring people to live happier and healthier lives.
What an inspiring group of people! Chicagoland Conscious Capitalists are doing great and important work, and the group provides wonderful and much-needed support for those who are passionate about doing more than just 'business as usual.'
