When it comes to business, many of us make decisions using an intellectual approach- looking at calendars, bank accounts and deadlines. When we need to create cash flow, monitor expenses, and manage risk, data drives our decisions.

Gut instinct is a sense of knowing what we need to do in spite of the visible information we have to the contrary. Paying attention to body signals and our inner voice happens when we leave ourselves time and space to hear and feel, and when we operate from a place of non-stress and equanimity.
