A few months ago, I was passing by the store L’Occitane with a few of my friends (both massage therapists) and we spoke briefly to the salesperson standing outside of the store offering free samples of their amazing Shea Butter moisturizer. One of my friends, mistakenly, mentioned how Lush had great products too, and then we had to endure the salesperson almost turning purple and bashing on Lush.
Well, if you hadn’t read about my obsession with Lush previously, needless to say I was a little taken aback by this complete breach in professional integrity. It’s never a good idea to bash perceived competition… because who ends up looking petty for it? Probably not your competition. Probably you. Read more

Anyone can rote learn the Tarot card meanings and how to do a Tarot reading, but if you want to deliver accurate and insightful Tarot readings you need to be able to build a personal connection with your Tarot cards.
Theresa and I sharing a hug (and a drink) after I won the Tarot Apprentice
Business books used to bore me. That whole idea of entrepreneurship made me either roll my eyes or yawn.
And then I became Theresa Reed’s tarot apprentice. And all that began to change.
If you had said to me, “A year from now you’ll have a tarot website, hire a professional photographer for your business photos, and attend a few tarot conferences where they now know your name” I would have called you certifiably insane. Start drawing up those involuntary commitment papers right now!
But now tarot and this website is my life, and every experience is fodder for my blog.
Readers Studio started a little differently for me this year. Last year, my friend Courtney and I were up far too early on the Friday morning to watch the Royal Wedding before heading to the conference, leading us to consume massive amounts of coffee once we arrived in order to stay awake. This year, I drove myself down to the conference from my home about 45 minutes away. I still needed the massive amounts of caffeine, however (some things never change). Read more
I am very excited to announce the first in a new series in blog posts…. the “7 Questions” series! I will be posing 7 questions to people within the tarot community; whether they are bloggers, authors, deck creators, or fellow readers (or sometimes, all of the above!). Let’s kick this baby off right!
My first interview is with the coauthor of Psychic Tarot, Nancy Antenucci. Now, I’ll admit, I was intrigued by the prospect of reading her book, but also taken aback by the title. The title itself is a bold assertion. Honestly, I wasn’t even sure I wanted to read it. Then at SF BATS, I saw Nancy and her mini-troupe perform a vignette about what a psychic tarot reading looks like. It was enjoyable, with Nancy cast as the little psychic voice that the reader listened to and relayed to the querent. Nancy held up signs, and there was one sign about moss that struck me: If I’m remembering correctly, it was “the smell of moss”. This little tidbit of information made me scratch that itch to buy Psychic Tarot immediately after the performance. Clearly, this is a woman who gets it.
I devoured Psychic Tarot. There is simply no other way to put it. Its slender spine is deceiving… this book is chock full of information and exercises! But without further delay, here is a bit of information about Nancy and her interview. Read more
