Written to inspire, motivate, and share ideas for building your business, these are Camille’s “lessons learned.”
There are many elements and aspects in life ~ Let's build balance in all of them!
 
I see the HCC as reflection of the ONENESS we want to see in the world. Coming together for the purpose of stewarding Humanity forward in a positive way as a collaborative collective of wellness and positive energy thinkers that work in unison without competition or fear. That is the embodiment of purpose here on Earth. HCC is poised to be a true Leader of wayshowers who intend for Mind, Body, Spirit, Business, Budget Planet in all our corners. Let it be so! Aho.

For me, it represents the unity of all these ingredients to achieve success. The Holistic Chamber of Commerce encompasses all these aspects for our members, one does not work without the other. We have so many opportunities to thrive if we work collaboratively as a community. Proud to a member of the HCC.

When you think of a successful business leader, some attributes that usually come to mind are resilient, collaborative, resourceful, patient, controlled, innovative and a host of other positive characteristics. However, most people would not associate Aikido as having anything to do with these leadership qualities. That’s where they are wrong.
 
Aikido, the art of the Samurai, is a Japanese martial art and has been recognized by top educators, business leadership groups and was even featured on Forbes, “Study Aikido to Become a Better Business Leader.” A  Samurai spends a lifetime devoted to his cause and is always practicing to improve his skill.
 
As an Aikidoka (one who practices Aikido) in life and in business. I have been fortunate enough to have studied under a great Aikido master, Gentil Pennewaert Shihan for the past twenty years at Newport Beach Aikido. Through the years, I have found myself applying the principles of Aikido as a business leader. I often tell my clients that I have graduated from the University of Aikido.
 
If you want to sign up more customers, clients and/or patients, this is the one for you! Do you feel like you are putting yourself out there but can't figure out why people haven't signed up yet?
 
There are two critical keys to make sure your marketing works well!
 
1. When people are looking for the product/service/event that you offer, will they find you?
 
2. When they find you, will they know how to sign up?
 
Sure, your website offers a free gift in exchange for their email address... But what if someone is ready to buy now? What if they don't want to get on another email list? And do you even send emails to those who do sign up for your free gift?
The Mindful Marketer knows that, to help people, you have to make it easy for them to buy. Sometimes, you first have to help people know why they want to buy. Sometimes, they are ready and they just need your number (or email) or an easy-to-see "click here" "sign up now" button, and make sure that your links work).
No doubt about it, we’re living in a new world… especially when it comes to networking.
 
We used to be able to just go to a once monthly meeting of our local chapter of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce (or any other of a handful of networking groups) to connect with people.
 
Now, we are using social media and Zoom for the majority of our networking opportunities. Ironically, while we are connected to more people all over, some of us feel less connected overall.
 
What works for networking today? While most of your networking may be online these days, the keys are the same for BOTH online AND in-person networking.
 
Whether you are an introvert or an extrovert, there are some core elements to keep in mind.
