You have probably heard that meditation can help you reduce stress and anxiety. And there’s a chance that you thought about meditating, but think you haven’t got the time.

As a busy entrepreneur, finding another chunk of time each day isn’t easy. But if you’re willing to gradually build up to just 10 minutes on a regular basis, you can experience the benefits of meditation.

When you learn the simple meditations in this course, you and your business will benefit in the following ways:

  • Your ability to focus on the tasks at hand will improve dramatically.
  • With increased concentration, you’ll be able to learn more and retain what you learn.
  • You will stop pushing so hard and let your business evolve in a healthy way.
  • You’ll be able to make effective intuitive decisions.
  • Your decisions will be more congruent with who you are.
  • You’ll be able to discover your true life purpose.
  • You’ll feel more connected to yourself, your clients, and the world around you.
  • Your willingness to take care of necessary business tasks will improve.

I’ve kept this course short so you can get into it as quickly as possible. Instructions are clear and concise, and I’ll actually take you through a few short meditations.

Your business is an extension of you, and when you learn to relax and eliminate stress, the health of your business will be a reflection of your increased health.

There is an endless variety of meditation methods. In this section, I'm going to introduce you to a few that I have used and found effective for helping me focus, concentrate, and feel connected to myself.


Here is a simple meditation that you can use at the beginning of every meditation session.

The Basic Meditation

This simple technique is often taught by instructors of mindfulness.

Mindfulness Breathing

This technique for connecting to your inner world is a combination of an ancient Zen Buddhist technique and bio-feedback. I've done this meditation for so many years that it has become a signal to my body to relax. Within a few seconds after I take a deep breath and begin the meditation, I'm in a state of deep relaxation.

Letting Go Meditation

Use this technique to help create whatever you wish for.
