3 Tips on How to Go Farther Faster in Business using your Human Design

The Journey to Smarter Business Practices

Have you ever felt like you're working endlessly yet not seeing the results you deserve? If so, you're not alone. I've been there. As a lifelong entrepreneur born to Polish immigrant parents who embraced the American dream, I was steeped in the ethos of hard work from a young age. However, my quest for something more—more impact, more income, and more fun—led me to explore human design as a revolutionary way to achieve business success. In this blog post, I'll delve into the key strategies discussed in my impactful episode of the Design and Align Your Business Podcast. These tips will help you work smarter, not harder, by aligning your business with your human design.

Understanding Human Design in Business

Human Design is a system that combines astrology, the I Ching, Kabbalah, and the Chakras to offer a blueprint of your unique energetic makeup. Utilizing this system can guide you in making decisions that are more aligned with your true self, ultimately making your business more efficient and effective.

When I went to college to get my Master's in Business, I discovered a plethora of business strategies. But it was my deep dive into human design that really changed the game. Here are the three fundamental tips I highlighted to get you started on a more aligned entrepreneurial path.

Tip 1: Align Your Actions With Who You Are

Discover Your Human Design Chart

To align your business actions with who you are, the first thing you need is your human design chart. I offer a free, interactive chart on my Instagram (@iamannanichols) that allows you to hover over different parts of the chart for insights.

Embody Your Human Design

Once you have your chart, the next step is embodiment. It’s one thing to understand your chart intellectually; it’s another to live it. Begin by aligning your actions and decisions with your unique design. Reflect on your strengths and weaknesses as indicated in your chart. Are you forcing yourself to do tasks that you're not naturally good at? Is there a part of your business that feels heavy and resistant? These are clear signs that you're not aligned with your true self.

Take Small Steps

It's impractical to change everything overnight. Instead, take small, conscious steps. Week by week, decision by decision, start to integrate your human design into your business practices. For example, if your design shows that you're not naturally inclined to administrative tasks, consider delegating these to someone who excels in that area. This way, you can focus more on where you naturally shine, speeding up your journey to success.

Tip 2: Align With Your Ideal Client

Find Your Fractal Line

In human design, the concept of the "fractal line" refers to a group of people you are energetically connected to. Understanding this can help you identify your ideal clients—those who are divinely designed to benefit most from your services.

Be Intentional, Not Random

It might be tempting to try to serve everyone, especially in the early stages of your business. However, by being specific and intentional about who you serve, you'll make a much greater impact. Use your human design to guide you in this selection process. Look for indicators in your chart that align with those of your ideal clients.

Practical Applications

Once I've identified my ideal clients, I align my marketing strategies, business plans, and daily operations to serve this specific group. This focused approach not only saves me time and energy but also makes my business more effective and profitable.

Tip 3: Create an Aligned Business Plan

The Importance of a Business Plan

I can’t emphasize enough the need for a robust business plan. Many entrepreneurs dive into their passion without a concrete plan, and while enthusiasm is important, a well-thought-out business plan is crucial for long-term success.

Integrate Practical and Spiritual Insights

Your business plan should be a fusion of practical business strategies and your human design insights. Consider your type, strategy, authority, and other elements of your chart when constructing your plan. For example, if you are a Projector, your plan should include scheduled times for rest and introspection, to avoid burnout.

Regularly Update Your Plan

Creating a business plan isn’t a one-time activity. As your business evolves and grows, your plan should too. Make it a habit to revisit and revise your plan every few years, or as needed, to make sure it stays aligned with your goals and your design.

By focusing on these three essential tips—aligning your actions with your true self, aligning with your ideal client, and crafting an aligned business plan—you can move farther and faster in your entrepreneurial journey. Human design offers a unique, insightful way to navigate the complexities of running a business, making it a powerful tool for heart-centered entrepreneurs like you.
