Entrepreneur + Business + Tech Resources

I like business, I think I might actually love the art of doing business. I see it as yoga off the mat, or yoga in action. A business has the potential of being a place for spiritual practice, you know what I mean?

For example, I go to yoga a yoga class and practice things like integrity, softening, responsibility & opening to something larger. It's great. Then I leave yoga class. A switch flips in my brain and is like, "hey, it's cool to gossip now" or "it's cool to not be present while I'm serving a customer."
 
Well, I see business as a big fat opportunity to practice what I learn in the container of my spiritual practices - in the 'real world'. It's business disguised as a school of transformation.
 
My term for creating this type of business is the Entrepreneur's Ashram. Businesses are the ashrams of the future.
 
As I build my ashram, I'm grateful to have the support of of many different services + products. They allow me to present my offerings to the world and exchange value. 
 
I've gathered a lot of support from these services, blogs, books & extraordinary people (each link is set to open in a new window so you can keep coming back to this list).

My referrals are given with extreme love, care and first hand experience (these are not affiliate links with the exception of the books - because I created a lovely bookstore through amazon.com to get all of my recommendations in one place).
