How To Love Being A Spirit-Fed Entrepreneur When Things Get Rough?

How To Love Being A Spirit-Fed Entrepreneur When Things Get Rough, is an insightful post, about two beautiful sisters, Robin and Sue who share what they value in life and in business at the The Copper Kettle Tea Bar, Foley Alabama. I’ve also include practical tips you can use to begin to understand the soul and self  to realize that this loving self is what feeds your spirit-fed enterprise when things get rough. Plus a brief glimpse into personality types that are more likely to vibe with a spiritually led business.

Robin Peters, co-founder of The Copper Kettle Tea Bar and firstborn sister is an INFP. Myers-Briggs speak for feeling, intuitive, sensing and thinking. Spiritual speaking, I refer to these types as Seekers. They are unconventional and imaginative dreamers, often eccentric, who pursue meaning and harmony built upon their own frame of reference.


We at the Cooper Kettle believe in offering a sacred space for those to gather and feed the spirit to build a soulful community. – Robin Peters, INTP, The Seeking Traveler.


Robin Peters, Co-Founder: The Cooper Kettle Tea Bar On Being A Spirit-Fed Entrepreneur

“I come from a family of strong women in many ways. My grandmother was a huge influence. I believe she passed on her entrepreneurial spirit while my parents gifted me with joie de vivre along with the importance of community and hospitality. My sister Sue is a genius in the kitchen. While I didn’t get the cooking gene, I developed skills in operations, technology and relationship building with networking other business owners. I learned a lot, which helped me discern the next big idea, continue looking forward and staying focused on our company mantra; tea-ing is our essential process. Our philosophy hasn’t changed from our first to our current business; we are a place of hospitality that is all inclusive and sacred. A place to feed the spirit, to build the soul and to bring community together.” – Robin Peters, and Sue Adams co-founders of The Copper Kettle Tea Bar


For me it is believing I am not the source , God is and he created us all with  a uniqueness that is valued and important …what we call work. – Robin Peters, the co founder of The Copper Kettle Tea Bar.


Robin and Sue are beautiful caring souls, rare individuals who have found a way to operate a healthy and successful business. “Personally the philosophy of the tea room stands for me. I need to stop, slow down and remember what’s important because most problems at work or when things do not go how I planned are nothing but a thing…and not life changing unless I give it that power.”  says, Robin Peters. Another great takeaway from Robin who seems to have prioritized the notion of self-care to maintain balance and resilience, an essential business tool.


A Few More Tips on How To Love Being A Spirit-Fed Entrepreneur When Things Get Rough?

A few practical tips to use to begin to understand the soul and self  to realize that this loving self is what feeds your spirit-fed enterprise when things get rough. Recognize it. Nurture it. Feed it. And fully connect to it. Once you do your life and business will change. The tips:

Ground Yourself in Faith

Anchor yourself in your faith when the storm clouds gather. As spirit-driven entrepreneurs, this might involve connecting with your spiritual beliefs, those that resonate with your personality type. For INTP the spiritual practices that resonate with your type are Qigong, meditation, and grounding practices: breathwork, meditative walking, a soothing bath…

Cultivate a Positive Mindset

I speak of challenges, in my book Unpack Your Personality, as opportunities for personal development, windows of opportunities. When you see setbacks as learning experiences, not failures they become stepping stones on the path to success. Keep yourself positive through inspirational quotes, positive affirmations, and supportive friends and business networks that share similar values and beliefs.

Embrace Adaptability

Trust your true self. Knowing your spiritual roots provide a stable core while allowing room for flexibility and innovation. When you embrace change with an open heart, recognizing that it may lead to unexpected opportunities and personal growth, adaptability becomes more likely.

Seek Guidance and Wisdom

Being a spirit-fed entrepreneur is often associated with the notion that intuition can provide insight beyond logical understanding. Often, facing challenges becomes more manageable when you tap into your true self, and trust the guidance your receive. You should also build relationships with those who have walked the same path as you. Remember to have faith in your gut instincts, as they are whispers from your soul of higher consciousness that illuminate a path of success.

Practice Gratitude

Gratitude is a transformative force that can shift your perspective beyond your wildest expectations. Challenging times can take their toll on you and your business. So make time daily to reflect on what truly matters. Expressing gratitude for the lessons learned, the relationships built, and the progress made can foster fulfillment and joy, even in the midst of difficulties.


These Personas Love Being Spirit-Fed Entrepreneurs Even When Things Get Rough

Ever  since childhood these types have been told they “march to the beat of their own drum,” never really blending into society. Some even strive to be different, and depending on your Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), you might be more unique than you think. And please, all personality types can and should rely on gut instincts. Some have an easier time connecting as their intuitive trait is more conscious. The trick is to make it conscious so you use it for the fabulous benefits it offers in your entrepreneur endeavors. Learn more about these types and others in my brand new book: Unpack Your Personality: Let Your Inner Guide Be Your Travel Guide.



Harmonious types are creative, and are highly skilled with systems, networking, and supporting others. They are catalysts of change and use their charming ways and abilities to to persuade others who are likely to adapt their visions. Persuasive entrepreneurs.


Insightful types are often mistaken for extroverts. Uber creatives who love deep and meaningful conversations and dislike the spotlight. This makes them more likely to have a business partner, yet you quietly take charge.


Assured types have a powerful combination of true creative imagination and highly-tuned instincts that give you the rare gift of problem-solving. You like attention and can be theatrical, yet you are commanding and powerful.  An unorthodox entrepreneur.


Inventive types have a rare combination of traits that makes them intellectual nerds with exceptional problem-solving abilities. Creative, and tend to keep to themselves, a home business may be in the cards, as a solution focused entrepreneur.


Curious, comedic, outspoken and direct. They say what’s on their mind, even when it’s unpopular. Innovative, and welcoming of new ideas to to grow a businesses, exploring every option, and trying new things. Pioneering entrepreneurs.


Ingenious types struggle to collaborate in groups. A lone wolf, minimalist, and intuitive thinker, they adapt, go with the flow, and are flexible. They have questioning minds and remain open to change and new perspectives. Solo entrepreneurs.


Expressive types are spontaneous, independent, and original. As soul-fed entrepreneurs go they’re genuinely optimistic inspiring change through words or actions. You stay true to you, regardless of who you do business with. Trailblazing entrepreneurs.


Knowing what my work is has helped me really see clearly what and why I am doing. It frees me from the ego and misplaced responsibility sometimes business owners take on – Sue Adams, Co-Founder, The Copper Kettle Tea Bar.
