THE 12 ENTREPRENEURIAL LAWS OF JOY AND EASE

A Step-by-Step Roadmap to Discern and Determine Your True Path in Business | Instructor: Cigdem Kobu

Course Description

Building a business is not an easy feat. Especially if you're introverted.

If you're just starting, you might even be worried that your quiet-loving self will be unable to bear the loud, hype-filled, and sometimes unsavory world of business and marketing on the Web.

But the truth is building a business can be very enjoyable when you realize that it's one of the best journeys to personal growth, connection, service, and inner fulfillment and that you can do it your way.

The 12 Entrepreneurial Laws of Joy and Ease is a contemplative writing course I designed with introverted writers, creatives, and changemakers who want to build and run an online business in mind. It's a step-by-step, compact roadmap that answers some of the questions that might be keeping you awake at night.

If you desire to use modern digital tools to share your knowledge, experience, skills, stories, and offerings with a larger, global audience and do it in an ethical and sustainable way, this is the class you should take before doing anything else.

As you work on the twelve lessons and the complementing writing prompts one by one, you’ll realize that my 12 Entrepreneurial Laws are actually very "human" laws of joy and ease.

They are about self-discovery, connection, compassion, clarity, balance, respect, awareness, mindfulness, service, simplicity, sharing, harmony, help, courage, freedom, vulnerability, openness, presence, and most importantly, love.

Love for yourself. Love for others. Love for creating. Love for changing the world and bringing to life things that matter.

I hope the ideas and tips I share in this unique business+writing class inspire you. I hope they shed light on your entrepreneurial way.


Praise for "The 12 Entrepreneurial Laws of Joy and Ease"

“Thank you for this amazing class. I am seriously impressed by the quality and depth of it. A strong introvert, I felt validated and understood when going through this course. This class gave me so much hope that I could create a sustainable business and a life that would honor who I am as an introvert and a person needing more calm and quiet to be healthy and happy. Thank you again, Cigdem.”

“A thought I had today about this mini class: It’s like a Good Mother. Very nurturing and puts in the center the ‘YOU’ (the entrepreneur). Not the money, not the achievements, not even helping others, but the YOU. The ME. MY needs. I am really enjoying this. You are very much appreciated.”

An Insightful and Thought Provoking Visit with My Business

by Terri Jackson
I took this course over the last two days and loved the wisdom in each lesson. It has been the first course in a long time that kept me coming back for the next lesson. I know that the lessons and resources come from true lived experiences, they resonated so deeply with where I am at with my new business and all my doubts and feelings of being overwhelmed. I have come away with pages of notes and a list of gentle action items. Baby steps. I am now looking forward to my next vendor event instead of dreading it.
