“Emotional Intelligence” and “Emotional Resilience” are phrases thrown around the creative entrepreneur online space quite regularly… but how many people actually really know what these phrases mean?
And when I say mean, what does having emotional intelligence + a resilient mindset really mean to your quality of life (both personal and business)? That’s what this post is all about, my friends.

When you’re deeply attuned to your emotional intelligence, you’re able to form more aligned relationships.
You can also attract and convert soul-aligned clients and customers when you’re deeply attuned to your emotional intelligence. You can create deeply meaningful conversations that make others feel safe to explore how they can work with you next.
Other moments in business where emotional intelligence is a huge asset:
What’s not to love about taking the time to build your EI? It will not only help you live a more fulfilling life in your personal relationships, it will also greatly benefit your business!
