Online Biz Courses: What To Look For

books and mouseQuestions from my apprentice Amelia have resulted in answers from me that were too good to not share via a blog post! She asked some really great questions about online business courses and how to know when you are choosing the right one for you.

I have taken quite a few online business courses: some are fantastic, and some I just couldn’t muster up the energy to have both my full time day job and my tarot business AND devote my time to doing the coursework required to really benefit from those classes.

When I did Marie Forleo’s RHH B-School, that was a CRAZY leap of faith that I would make that money back, and it was the biggest chunk of change I’ve ever spent on a business course. I literally had a “fuck it” moment and made the purchase. I WOULDN’T recommend making that big of a decision in that mindset, but I am glad I did.Continue Reading

Tap Tuesdays Are Tarot Tuesdays: Why I’m Closing My Doors One Night a Week

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about an announcement that requires me (seemingly) to be doing LESS business, rather than more. But yes, it’s true… as of next week, me and my quirky tarot cards will be off the clock on Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. I will not be accepting client bookings on Tuesdays!Continue Reading

Can’t Read for Everyone

Sometimes, you just have to say "No."

Sometimes, you just have to say “No.”

You know the saying, “You can’t please everyone”?

Well, I’ve got a new spin on it: “I can’t read for everyone.”

Here’s a little story. I was doing readings at Whimsies Incognito one evening. It was quiet, and two women came in, not sure if they were in the right place. The first woman sat down, while her friend looked around.

From what I remember (and keep in mind, I rarely remember the content of people’s readings), it wasn’t a great reading. She looked bored through the entire reading (all ten minutes of it) and got annoyed when the timer went off. “That’s it?” she said. Had I been a younger, more inexperienced reader, I probably would have been reduced to tears at her reaction. Instead, I cheerfully chirped “Yup!”, she paid, and then she said snidely to her friend hovering in the doorway, “Don’t bother, she’s not worth it,” as they sailed out the door.

Ouch. Like I said, if I were my younger self, that would have been a big owwie to my ego. Instead, my thicker skin won out, and I laughed and shared a beer with my friend. Hey, you can’t win ‘em all.Continue Reading
