Feng Shui for Business - Benefits for Your Business  

Because our world is becoming increasingly competitive, we need to maximize our assets and create success. A Feng Shui analysis can assist by identifying and reducing any negative energy present in your building while simultaneously enhancing the positive areas. Clearly a customer who feels welcome as they enter the premise is more likely to deal with your business than one that feels uncomfortable. The balance brought about by the adherence to Feng Shui principles can improve the environment your business operates in and the feeling that people get when they walk in the door.

In brief the benefits can be:

  • Location of current & future Health & Wealth areas
  • Help to activate the positive aspects in your business
  • Improved business relationships with clients, vendors, employees and business associates
  • Improved employee health
  • Inspiration to initiate ideas and creativity
  • Help with design ideas
  • Focus Business direction and growth
  • Encourage Success and Profitability
  • A balanced & soothing environment
  • Best directionality and positioning of key people in your business
  • Ideas for redecorating or rearranging furniture
  • Assistance in choosing appropriate building for your business.

When is the best time to Employ a Feng Shui Professional?

Building your Business Premises

It is easier to fix problems in the designing stage of business premises than after they have already been built. In fact it would be ideal for a Feng Shui analysis to be undertaken before you even purchase your land. A practitioner can review the building plans; give you an idea of the best direction your business should face and the general surroundings that would best promote the positive elements around you. In this way the land purchase can be made with the end result in mind. If you already own the land however the Feng Shui analysis can provide an insight as to the ideal direction a business can face, and how the internal structure can be done to give you the best Feng Shui for your business.

It can also identify your current and future Health & Wealth areas and the balance of elements that should best promote them. I can help you with the layout of your business; identify which rooms would be ideal as showrooms, storage areas, and offices. The analysis will provide direction on the colour schemes best suited to promote the positive aspects of your premises and reduce the negative aspects.

This alone can make a vast difference in the feel and tranquility of the business itself.

My aim is to work with you, your builder or Architect to ensure that your business premises support your business, your business relationships and, of course, the future Health and Wealth of your business.

Extending or Renovating your business premises.

Extensions and renovations can change business significantly, not only physically but also harmoniously. A separate Feng Shui analysis is undertaken on the premises and the proposed extension or renovation. The time period in which a building or renovation is completed has a significant affect on the balance of natural energies. Balancing the energies of both areas can make a vast difference to how your customers feel in your premises and the feeling of the business itself.

Depending on the results of the analysis the colour schemes and decorations of the various areas may differ to ensure the appropriate measures are taken to promote the Wealth and Health of the business.


Selling your Business Premises.

A Feng Shui Professional can advise you in the presentation of your business premises so that the positive areas are enhanced to ensure the best outcome possible for you. If you have ever walked into a business and felt uncomfortable you are sensing the imbalance that exists in the Building. By making appropriate decoration changes based on a full analysis of the premises, it is possible to create a more welcoming feel to the business. Obviously this is what the possible buyers will experience when they walk into the business.

A positive feel is essential to make prospective customers interested and excited by the property and the business itself.


Buying a Business Premises.

Purchasing new business premises is a big financial decision to make in a business. It not only ties up capital but the affect it can have on your customers can never be taken for granted. Customers are used to where you are now and if you move to a location where they feel uncomfortable they may lose interest in your business. Conversely a shift to more appropriate premises may attract new customers whilst satisfying existing customers. A Feng Shui Professional, such as me can go to the property and undertake an analysis of the building to ensure that your current and future Health & Wealth areas are not blocked . before you commit to buy!

Remember when buying business premises it is usually a long-term proposition so we need to know that you will purchase a building that works for you rather than against you according the principles of Feng Shui.


Decorating or Redecorating your business premises

Businesses are dynamic and change with the times. Consequently the need to look fresh and inviting is even more essential to businesses than in our own homes. Many businesses operate in premises that suit them and where they prosper and enjoy good health. There are times however when they need to change the colour schemes of the business, either because the décor has become drab over time, is unfashionable or they feel their premises are no longer harmonious.

Feng Shui principles tell us that nothing is static and like all other areas of our life the energies within our businesses change with time. In Feng Shui there is a natural twenty year cycle that brings about significant change to the way in which elements interact and the manner they affect our Wealth and Health. There is also a less significant but equally important change that takes place on a yearly basis.

To ensure the colour scheme, and furnishings in your business are best suited to the promotion of your health and wealth it is advisable to have a Feng Shui analysis on a yearly basis to provide direction on any changes that may be beneficial to the harmony of your premises.

In many cases these changes do not need to be profound, it all depends on the results of the audit. For businesses there are different considerations than for a home, although the general principles are the same.

One of the additional services I can offer to my clients in additional to the Feng Shui analysis is help with decorating ideas which are creative and need not be expensive to undertake. I always work on the principle that there is more than one way to do things and that all changes should be within the financial means of my clients, wherever possible.


Deciding Where to Locate People

A major asset in any business is the people it employs. By helping to create an environment in which your employees can be healthy and enjoy their work, must be a priority. In doing so businesses can keep their employee's in the company so that they avoid losing key skills developed over the years of employment. Clearly a lower staff turnover can reduce the expenses related to replacing and training staff.

Another outcome of the Feng Shui analysi is determining where to place people within the premises. As an example we may place the sales force in an area that must be vibrant and promotes the wealth of the company. Conversely we may put the accounts department in an area best suited to academic pursuits. By using the Feng Shui analysis to place people undertaking specific tasks, they are more likely to feel comfortable.

This will promote harmony within the business, which itself is a precursor to a healthy business.

Happy Employee's = Increased Productivity, Creativity and Teamwork with the Added Bonus of Less Sick Days.


How Premises affect our Clients

The first impression our clients receive when entering our business premises can leave a lasting impression and must be in keeping with your company's image. If your premises are cluttered, dirty or decorated in depressing or tasteless colours your clients will make a value judgment as to how your business operates. Whether it is right or wrong!.

By utilizing a Feng Shui analysis it is possible to ensure your premises is balanced and makes a positive impression on your clients. The utilization of colours, shapes, uses of space and the enhancement of the health and wealth areas as determined by the analysis can produce harmony and create the impression of business success. It will make the client comfortable. The same will apply of course to vendors and other business associates.

How a business presents itself will affect how people judge the reputation, integrity and success of the company.

By appropriate decorations businesses can strengthen their business prospects, improve their chances of expansion and create a relaxing environment in which all parts of the business can operate. With stress being the main sickness of the decade, the more harmony that can be created the healthier the business will be.
