Biz Mentoring

Expert advice + strategies for spiritual entrepreneurs
— from a pro with 30 years of success + steady cash.

I’m not a businessman, I’m a Business, man!” 
—Jay-Z, Rapper + Entertainment Mogul. Current Net Worth: $520 Million

You’ve got the same number of hours in every day as Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Rick Ross.

So: how are you spending your time?

Are you…

– Undercharging your clients (or working for free) because you’re scared of charging cash-money for your services?

– Hiding behind excuses instead of doing the challenging work you know you need to do — like blogging, putting together a website, and marketing yourself to people who need you?

– Comparing yourself to your peers and getting heartbroken over their success — instead of focusing on upgrading your own game?

The Jay-Zs, Beyoncés and Rick Rosses of the world don’t fritter away their time with resistance and excuses. They work smart, perform full-out and bring their absolute best.

As your Biz Mentor? That’s the same standard of excellence I will hold you to.

It’s time to stop operating like a hobbyist, a broke hippie, or a starving artist.

It’s time to take your business, your income, and your talents seriously.

It’s time to BO$$ UP.

Hire me as your Biz Mentor and let’s start making the kind of progress you can measure in dollah-bills.

Biz Mentoring:

THE BASICS

As a Business Mentor, I work with spiritual, mystical + metaphysical entrepreneurs.

My clients include: astrologists, palm readers, crystal healers, Reiki practitioners, integrative medicine professionals, tarot card readers, yoga teachers, and life coaches. Spiritual outlaws of every flavor.

If your business would be considered “out there” or “woo-woo” by a big slice of society? You are my kinda client!

I’ve been a self-employed entrepreneur for over 25 years, running two profitable businesses side by side: a Tarot card reading business and a yoga studio.

In a world where 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs fail after just 18 months, I’ve been rolling, growing, evolving — and making enough cash-money to support myself and my family — for almost 3 decades.

I love seeing people take their work seriously. I love seeing people make real money. And I love seeing business done right. 

When you hire me as your Biz Mentor — and then apply some grit and discipline — that’s what we can create.

Biz Mentoring:

BIG RESULTS

As a Biz Mentor, I have helped my clients to…

– Go from tech-terrified to getting a website up and running at a professional level.

– Start booking real clients — and charging real money — after years of working for “free” or “just bartering with friends.”

– Rise from “unknown” to respected pro, booking high-profile speaking gigs and blog / podcast interviews.

– Find answers to the big questions that keep ‘preneurs up at night (“What makes me unique?” “What should I charge?” “How can I explain what I do?”)

– Create a totally new relationship with marketing and self-promotion (No more panic. No more hiding.)

In my clients’ own words:

“Theresa patiently walked us through the steps to setting up our websites, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.” 

“She has amazing knowledge that she makes simple for anyone to understand.” 

“Her secrets get you surfing the net, updating your style to meet today’s media needs, as well as getting your business going in the right direction.”

“[So] helpful for those who have cyber-anxiety and fear of hitting the wrong buttons.”

“Theresa helped me refine my vision of myself and clarify my business goals.”

“Theresa explained things in terms I could understand.”

“She doesn’t expect any less than your best, and in turn she’ll give you hers.”

“I wouldn’t have a thriving web presence and a bevy of loyal clients without her help!”

Biz Mentoring:

DISCLAIMER + STRAIGHT TALK

There are a lot of business mentors who promise “6 figures in 6 weeks” or “easy money and 1000s of customer transactions while you sleep.”

I don’t make those kinds of promises. (And personally, I steer clear of people who do.)

What I can promise is this:

– Encouragement. I want you to succeed. It’s great for my reputation as a Biz Mentor when you do! I will push you to bring your best. It’s better for both of us.

– Expertise. I’ve been running my own ship for 30 years. I’ve tried a lot, seen a lot, evolved a lot. I can shorten your learning curve and help you get up to speed without unnecessary time, effort or expense.

– Progress. While I can’t promise specific dollar amounts (like: “You’ll make $10,000 in one month, guaranteed!”) I can promise that if you take the advice, steps, and checklists that I give to you — and implement what you’ve learned, consistently — you will make progress with your business goals.

Just like if you show up at the gym and break a sweat, consistently, you will make progress with your health goals.

Consistent action = progress.

Simple as that.

High fives & wild applause:

Here’s what a few of my fabulous mentoring clients had to say about their experiences with me…

25046_327102252762_6075110_n“Theresa provides a wonderfully safe haven to explore tarot as a study of archetypal energies that we inhabit to better understand the span of our spiritual and human experiences. Theresa’s no-nonsense style helps you detach from the drama and see the energetic blueprint of your life. If you have a chance to study with Theresa, I encourage you to embrace the opportunity!”

~ Kim Tedford, Integrative Therapist, Integral Embrace

stacy“Theresa has an extraordinary gift with marketing media and tidbits. She has amazing knowledge that she makes simple for anyone to understand. Her secrets and little tricks to get you surfing the net, updating your style to meet todays media needs, as well as getting your business going in the right direction. Theresa has it all!”

~ Stacy Krafcyzk, Intuitive and Animal Communicator, All Spirit Healing

2294207“During our time together, Theresa helped me focus on my core beliefs, refine my vision of myself as a reader, and clarify my business goals. Her no-nonsense, non-judgmental, and eminently practical approach allowed us to make efficient, effective progress. I came out of the experience feeling revitalized and ready to shine.”

~ Barbara Moore, Tarot reader and author, http://www.tarotshaman.com

headshot-6-191x300“When I first met Theresa Reed face-to-face at Readers Studio 2011, I was already familiar with her work, her website, and above all her blog… and very aware that this was a woman who was going to make me WORK for what I wanted, which was to become a tarot pro. I was lucky enough to be the winner of her Tarot Apprentice contest in April 2011, and for the next year she mentored me with tough love, business savvy, and a ‘take no prisoners’ attitude. You want to take your metaphysical biz to the next level? Give her a call, and prepare to work it… she doesn’t expect any less than your best, and in turn she’ll give you hers. I wouldn’t have a thriving web presence and a bevy of loyal clients without her help!”
~Hilary Parry, Tarot Reader, www.tarotbyhilary.com 

freespiritcrystals_1294002786_59“Theresa patiently walked us through the steps to setting up our web-sites, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.  This basic class is helpful for those who have cyber-anxiety and fear of hitting the “wrong” buttons.  By the end of the class we all had our Facebook and Twitter accounts up and running and great tips for stylizing and personalizing our pages.  A painless way to get up and running in the 21st century.”

~ Diane Bloom, Crystal Healer and author,  Free Spirit Crystals
“As a teacher, you were thorough and always prepared.  Your insight into the cards and their meanings was true and thoughtful.  The advice and knowledge you gave me about how and when to read has remained with me all of these years, and I now have tarot parties and do card readings for family, friends and others finding their spiritual path in this life.  I cannot thank you enough for everything you have taught me.  Your expertise is beyond words.  You, without a doubt, changed my life with your wisdom and knowledge of the tarot.”~ Peggie R.
“After taking numerous classes with Theresa, I have found her to be an excellent teacher.  While the classes were informative and quite tough, she also made it very enjoyable.  It gives you a greater understanding of how difficult a profession it is and a greater understanding of the professionalism of Theresa and what a consummate artist she is.”
~ Denise C.
“It has been my privilege and honor to have taken part in Tarot reading classes offered by Theresa.  Her vast knowledge and experience are only surpassed by the respect and love she has developed for the Tarot over many years of diligent work in uncovering the mystery of the cards.  Theresa’s classes are no joke, as she is a serious, dedicated teacher willing to share her expertise and interpretations in a manner that is meaningful and comprehensive with the student just as serious and dedicated to learning as she is to teaching.  I have taken other classes elsewhere just to try to get a different spin on things and have found them all to be a waste of time.  Theresa’s classes are truly the gift that keeps on giving.”
~ Debbie O.
“At the time I took the class I had a basic rudimentary knowledge of the tarot, i.e. the traditional meaning of each card, and wasn’t sure where to go from there. Theresa’s class opened the door to a world of insight I didn’t realize was accessible. As a teacher she encouraged us to listen to our own intuition and gut feeling while also being mindful of distinguishing between intuition and our own ego based perception. In fact the theme of personal and professional ethical behavior was never overlooked in this class.  Theresa maintained a fun and friendly atmosphere while also maintaining clear boundaries and adherence to standards. Theresa taught us to nurture our own inner wisdom, not to take ourselves too seriously and to respect the free will and personal boundaries of potential clients.”
~ Jenny H.
“I was privileged to be a student in Theresa’s first tarot class and have taken part in subsequent classes. Not only is she a professional who’s expertise I respect, she’s a natural teacher — generous with her knowledge (which is considerable), encouraging, always relating different aspects of a complex subject to provide layers of understanding. Along with the class content I was expecting to learn, I was pleased to find myself learning more about myself, my motivations and how to practice in a thoroughly ethical manner. On top of all this — my studies with Theresa were always fun!”
~ Jackie D.
“I utilize the skills Theresa taught me in my daily life and reflect often on the greatest mentor I’ve had the honor of working with. Truly, the classes Theresa taught were the best I’d ever experienced and which took me the farthest in my own practice.”
~ Tammi Kapitanski, Remedy Within
“Theresa opened my eyes and my heart to the intuition found within the cards, and within myself.  She “tells it like it is” both as a reader and as a teacher and through her Tarot classes, I learned much more than just the Tarot!  I learned about how to read for wide varieties of people, young and mature, etc.  I learned to be aware of my biases and how to work around them.  I learned how to be gentle around a difficult subject and how to be direct and “hard core” when it was needed.  Learning the cards involves much more than just memorizing the “meanings” of the cards — it’s about expanding yourself and experiencing life through a different lens.  Theresa has made this journey enjoyable, exciting, comprehensive, and truthful.”
~ Kathe B.
“The best thing about my experience learning from Theresa was the fact that she really drove home the point of really taking the time to learn. Whether it was going through the meaning of each tarot card, the placement of each card in a tarot spread or combination card meanings; she took the time to make sure it sank into my head.”
~ Al Juarez, tarot reader,  Al’s Tarot
“I recently participated in a beginner’s tarot workshop with Theresa and a small group of wonderful ladies. I was not sure what to expect at first, however in the end I was overwhelmed by the enjoyable experience. I learned important basics and tools of tarot that will enable me to zero in on what I need to work on in order to progress in the right direction. I met new people with a similar interest in learning tarot to not only help themselves spiritually but others as well. It was a joy to share a similar interest with other like minded people. Theresa provided a relaxed, positive, and inviting atmosphere that made all of us present not wanting to leave but stay long past the three hour class!”
~ Angie
“Theresa’s blogging class was informative and helpful. Theresa explained things in terms I could understand and took individual time with students when needed. In addition to providing information in a way that was clear, detailed and easy to apply, she has a natural ability empower each student to find, and utilize, their unique gifts.  Most of us in the class were older women and not very technology savvy but Theresa gave us the encouragement and motivation to get right in there and do it.  I look forward to taking more classes with Theresa and find her to be a trusted and reliable guide to creating my own place in cyberspace.”
~ Jenny Hazard, Counselor
“Theresa really captures an audience well with her knowledge, straight-forward approach and a dash of humor.  Her teaching is fun and informative.”
~ Tracey V.
“Theresa made learning tarot fun and easy, and I strongly recommend the beginner’s class to anyone— whether you’re just starting out as I was, or as a person already possessing a knowledge of tarot.  Through a series of hands-on exercises, Theresa encouraged us to look at individual cards using a special structure she designed which enabled us to learn their meanings (and the symbolism inherent in each) without having to constantly refer to a tarot book. Because the class environment was so supportive, the delightful intuitive exercises with classmates were amusing and very helpful and made me feel much more confident about reading tarot by the end of the class. Theresa’s deep and abiding belief in the spiritual powers of tarot illuminated the magical ability it might have to transform painful situations into areas of personal growth.”
~ Jane H.
“That class was a blast of joy! Your teaching style is immediately interactive making the atmosphere nonthreatening, safe. I sing your praises as a teacher and reader. Your class left me with so much good practical information! Can’t wait for the next one, I’ll be there with bells on my toes. Thank you for teaching, it’s your calling!”
~ Theresa H.
“Granted, Theresa may not think of herself as the pom-pom, shish-koom-bah type, but her support and encouragement for new Tarot peeps is profound. Hopefully she understands the impact she has on up-and-coming Tarot Pros. From her revamp of her website this year to her easy-to-follow posts and newsletter, Theresa has style, grace, and a great grasp of the business of Tarot. No wonder so many people like to copy her.” ~ Amethyst Mahoney, tarot reader
