Joyce Kaye, The Computer Spirit, is back!
After working exclusively in the corporate world for the past 2½ years in Phoenix, AZ, as of September 2018, I am back in my own coaching and consulting business – and sooo very glad to be!!
The Computer Spirit: Inspiring and coaching you to reflect your purpose and passion in business and marketing.
It’s often challenging to be authentic, to express oneself, and to be creative while working in the corporate world, where you work a set schedule, are placed in a box, and your spirit goes unrecognized and is unable to thrive. I know, as I speak from much experience.
If you simply LOVE your present job, then kudos to you! I know that’s possible. I’m delighted that your spirit is filled with joy and is thriving.
But perhaps you find your present role suffocating, and think that being your own boss, having your own business, might sit well with your soul. It’s certainly worth exploring how your purpose and passion in life might best be served and best serve others if you were an entrepreneur, don’t you think?
If you’re already in your own business, you’ve probably already realized that you have more opportunity and flexibility to be and to express your authentic self – for your soul to shine – than in most cases when working for a large company. When your spirit is nourished, you have an increased capacity and ease in which to be
- creative and prosperous
- giving and generous
- at peace.
Is your present business and marketing reflecting your life purpose and passion?
That’s not to say it’s always easy being in one’s own business. But personally when I weigh both the positive and not-so-positive aspects of being in my own business, the pros far outnumber the cons. I’ve been in my own business since 1999, but apparently needed a dose of life in the big city corporate world again for a couple years to remind me what my spirit needs to get nourished, to be inspired, and in turn, to inspire others. Work simply cannot be just about the money. I make a greater difference and contribution to helping others when in my own enterprise – and have more fun and joy in the process! Perhaps you can relate?
And, so I am eagerly and enthusiastically back in my own business. As I help you and others, my spirit is filled with joy and gratitude to be reflecting my purpose and passion in my business.
Of course, I appreciate that there are individuals who do not want the responsibilities that come with the territory, whose personality is not a good fit, who have obligations which preclude stepping out, etc. I say that whatever works for your spirit so that it will thrive, evolve, and be joyful, follow that passion, follow that path. Keep in fit spiritual condition.
If Not Now, When?
However, if your spirit is withering and dying in your present environment, with time marching on, I ask,
“If not now, when?”
When will you take action towards nourishing your spiritual being through your work life and follow your life purpose and passion?
Spending Your Time
Since you spend so much of your awake time earning an income and being in a work environment, don’t you think it is crucial for that time to be meaningful and promote your growth – spiritual as well as intellectual?
I know that I want to spend my life – my time – doing what I love, what I’m passionate about. When I do what I love, I do what I do best. I spend my time doing what I do best.
How about you?
Is your business reflecting your mission, your passion? Are you spending your time doing what you love, doing what you do best?
Inspiration and Coaching
- How aware are you of what you are passionate about and excel at doing?
- Is your soul expressing itself in your business and is your business expressing your soul?
- Are your marketing materials accurately reflecting who you and your business are?
- Are you stuck in moving forward in a business or marketing project?
Maybe you’re already clear and in action about your passion, purpose, and business. Perhaps you’ve already started your writing or marketing project to reflect that — a slideshow, website, e-newsletter, or e-book — but need help in structuring it better, writing content, getting another perspective – ya know, to ensure that you get your ideas across in a user-friendly format, clearly and accurately.
Perhaps you were passionately writing your book about your spiritual journey or some other exciting adventure, or creating a website for your small business or non-profit organization — and you’ve hit a wall and need to be inspired to move forward again.
Well, rest assured, you need not walk your path alone. I am here to help.
You need tools to accomplish your project, to operate, to be efficient, and to market and express your purpose and passion in your business.
Personally and professionally, today’s world is so much about sharing information, connecting, and staying in touch through electronic media: websites, blogs, newsletters, and e-books.
But obviously you can’t be skilled at all the tools out there. Again, I can help you.
I love being creative using electronic media and the computer as much as I love working with people! I work to understand your needs and provide the best technical and aesthetic solutions.
And, if you’re up to learning and doing any portion of a business, marketing, or writing project yourself, I’m here to help empower you to take that path.
It’s always helpful to have a solid foundation in basic software skills so you don’t get frustrated or waste time, and can be successful in your work. With this in mind, my method is to provide hands-on, practical software training and coaching in Microsoft® applications such as: Windows, Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Excel.
And, then of course, there’s WordPress, dear to my heart for website creation.
