Reality Check – What It’s Really Like Working as a Part Time Tarot Reader

part time biz

Theresa Reed and I are doing a joint venture on our blogs where we give a little peek on the truth of what it means to do this work – full time or part time. Be sure to read Theresa’s take on Reality Check: What it’s really like working as a full time tarot reader.


There was a time when I hid the fact that I had a full time job (other than tarot reading) from my clients. I thought it was shameful and somehow unprofessional that I wasn’t doing tarot full time; that I was less of a reader for it.

Saturday morning dawned on Readers Studio, and I decided to forego the breakfast roundtable in favor of being well-rested for Theresa’s Master Class presentation, “How To Read Tarot Under Any Circumstance” (if you couldn’t be there for her class, feel free to buy her e-book on the subject here… it’s well worth it!).

Theresa certainly walked her walk during her talk, and delivered a wonderful presentation to a standing ovation. You can be sure I’m using some of her tips when dealing with difficult people in general (because all my clients are gems, of course!).Continue Reading
