Radio Toni and The Soul of Business with Damian Papworth and co-host Toni Lontis
This is a new series of co hosted shows with entrepreneur and businessman Damian Papworth. We are going to be talking about a new way of doing business and as Damian says “we want to change the world”. Before I introduce you to Damian here’s what you need to know:
Soulpreneurs all have a craft, a gift that when we share, we make the world a better place.
Damian Papworth’s craft is business. This became obvious as he transitioned from corporate to business in 2000 and had quickly built and sold 2 businesses within his first couple of years!
Now on his third business, another business he created from an idea born out of a sense of purpose, Damian found himself enjoying a business grown to ten times the size of the second. Damian was really enjoying, he was in the “flow” of the businss, contributing to the community, his life in balance, and it's amazing.
So, this sparked an idea, after 20 years of "school of hard knocks" business wisdom, of amplified success, of seeing what works and what doesn't, Damian decided he wanted to share all that knowledge with others.
Why? Well, like you, Damian wants to make the world a better place. And the best way he can do this is to support people like you, people with a gift, a passion, a purpose.
So if you are sitting in your purpose, wanting to change the world through grassroots service, but need some support working through the business side of things, Damians is here to support you, via The Soul of Business.
Damian is looking forward to meeting you here each week for the next 6 weeks of sharing from real life business experiences.
I want to start today with Damians favourite quote:
"The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind."- David Orr

The Soulpreneur's Business Training Mentorship
That will help you impact more people's lives than you thought possible by creating full alignment and connection between your soul gifts and the business parts of your craft.
By The end of this Program
- You'll be so aligned with your business you will not be able to feel where your craft ends and the business starts. It will all feel like part of your wonderful creation, your gift.
- You'll understand how the energetic flows of business work, how similar the flow looks to karma, and in so doing, gradually grow beyond limiting stories you may carry about the value of your craft.
- You'll have an intimate awareness of your own time, and tools to ensure the way you spend your time is always aligned with your vision and also, protects your passion and energy.
- You'll have the business wisdom to be able to attract your tribe at will, fully in control of attracting those you want to serve, in control of how your business grows.
- You'll have a system for getting help in your business when you need it. And more, for ensuring the help you find is in support of your journey, rather than undermining the essence of your creation with their baggage.
- You'll likely have doubled your impact and income (this is the benchmark most of our seekers achieve).
The Soul of Business Seeker Is Perfect For You If:
- You have a craft you are so passionate about you want to share it with the world.(Even (especially) if this leads you to second-guessing yourself often)
- When you do your thing, you are authentically in service to your tribe
- You may have just started, or be about to launch
- This may be a "side-hustle" for you at the moment but you know it needs to be more
- You've been in business for a while but feel you've missed the fundamentals and need them in place before you go "next level"
- You work well in group mentoring and are NOT looking for 1 on 1 coaching
- You are willing and open to growing as a person and professional
- You would love to both contribute to and benefit from a community of other soulpreneurs on the same journey
