Consciousness and spirituality are different concepts Consciousness - state of being aware of and responding to ones’ surroundings. A person aware of something and especially of oneself. It’s the quality of being aware. A conscious business is a business that is aware of its impact.
I think there are some businesses that are doing interesting things, where they are providing leadership and transformational work to help businesses become more conscious. I find this area particularly interesting.

Hi Loic, You musings remind me of some of the discussions around spiritual capitalism... https://dissidentvoice.org/2018/06/spiritual-capitalism/
That's well said and important for people to hear. But also, we must not forget that a conscious and spiritual person can embody just that and be a postman or hold any other job and help this world to vibrate on a higher level. I learned that after hearing the story years ago of one of Paramahamsa Yogananda's teachers who was a postman by day, guru by night (Autobiography of a Yogi). Otherwise, if everyone wants to be a coach we'll have a lot of problems to get things done..but if everyone wants to be more conscious then what a world we will create.
Thanks for sharing Loic! Love it. It reminds me of this talk that Alan Watts gave about working for yourself and choosing a profession that helps others ('figure out a way in which you get paid for playing'). Here's the talk, you might find it relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RArE0hu9oek
I left my career writing blogs and books to launch a startup 3 years ago. I got a bit sidetracked chasing money and the "startup dream." Fortunately, I'm off that boat now and back to doing what I love, writing :)
Anyways, I can't make the zoom call as that's 1am in Japan for me, but if there's a recording I'd love to watch it!
