Eram’s Insights on Purpose-Driven Businesses
Starting Her Business
- During her childhood years, Eram was raised in Pakistan, where people consider the idea of girls pursuing a career as “useless.”
- Despite excelling academically in her 14 years of education, she was encouraged by her parents to marry instead of pursuing an MBA.
- She experienced a cycle of loss for almost 20 years. This included her second divorce, and she had to learn to create a business on her own.
- Lack of information (e.g., do’s and don’ts, the failure rate of telesummits) regarding business since she wasn’t able to pursue a degree
- Problems in her personal life (no career, 2–3 lawsuits including a divorce and bankruptcy case)
What Helped Her Succeed
- Value absolute commitment. Never take no for an answer.
- Disconnect from people who put you down. They can bring you down and mess with your mindset.
- Understand the law of attraction. You attract what you are, so keep your hopes and energy high.
Letting Go of What You Know
- She believes that “What you know is holding you back.”
- Our perception of the world creates our reality. It affects the way we treat and go about life, which consequently leads to the reality in which we live.
- There is no absolute truth, even if our ego makes us believe there is.
- Questioning our own version of the truth is what can help us grow.
The Role of Passion
- While going through a dark time in her life, Eram was inspired by positive messages she heard from telesummits about spirituality and consciousness.
- She found her passion for sharing these messages with other people in similar situations.
- It was a perfect opportunity for her to share her story while getting paid to do so.
How Do We Find Our Passion?
- Remember that passions change, and entrepreneurship is NOT supposed to remain the same.
- Passion is what guides you to your purpose, but it doesn’t have to be your purpose.
- Take note of other elements: (1) what I love doing, (2) what I get paid for, (3) what I’m good at, and (4) what the world needs.
Investing in a Business
- Focus on your natural gifts and how to monetize it.
- It does not take a lot of monetary investment, but it does take grit and commitment.
Divine Feminine Business Model
- Not a model of competition, consumerism, or capitalism
- More balanced and wholesome
- Features elements of collaboration (there is enough for everyone, about sharing), compassion, and ability to show emotion
- Reason for success: transparency in the business, being vulnerable in front of my audience
- Creating an atmosphere of TRUST
Traits of Successful Students in Business
- Know they are born for leadership roles
- Wish to enjoy the gift of purpose
- Want to make an impact on the world
