Speaking of planners: I’m all about having some great planners for all my business needs. A few of my faves:
For scheduling clients and appointments, you can’t beat At-A-Glance Vienna Weekly and Monthly Planner 2015, Wirebound, 8.5 x 11 Inch Page Size (122-905)
I like to map out my launches and events on a wall calendar so that I can see my timeline in one place. I recommend AT-A-GLANCE Reversible Erasable Wall Calendar 2015, 36 x 24 Inches (PM26B28)
Because I like to check out the planets before doing any major biz move, I always get a copy of Llewellyn’s 2015 Astrological Calendar: 82nd Edition of the World’s Best Known, Most Trusted Astrology Calendar
I also love the Laurel Denise planners for my blog and marketing calendar. The layout is flat and there is a lot of space for jotting down ideas.
HOT TIP: taking a day off from tarot is always wise. It’s easy to suffer burnout in this work. In order for you to function at your highest capacity, you need time away from clients. Schedule in at least one day a week where you are doing zilch with your cards. Your brain will thank you very much.
Newsletters to read: Sign up for Alexandra Franzen’s newsletter for fantastic posts on writing and more.
Listen up: every month, I’m bringing some highly useful podcasts for mystical business owners with my very fine co-host, Bri Saussy, at Talking Shop. Don’t miss this month – we’re going to be talking with Pace Smith on the language we use with our clients. Previous shows are always in the archive.
On my beside reading stack: The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs: How to Be Insanely Great in Front of Any Audience and Speak Up For Your Business: Presentation Secrets for Entrepreneurs Ready to Tell, Sell, and Compel. I’ve got a presentation next year and I want to deliver like a pro, yo.

Go on and succeed wildly, hot stepper!
