Why you do what you do?
I get asked that question from time to time.
My answer is simple: I like to help people.
When I read tarot, it’s never to dazzle and wow ‘em with my “psychic powers.” Soooo not my intention. Instead, my work is devoted to helping navigate the rough spots and make better decisions. Healthy, happy lives – that’s what I’m all about.
When I teach tarot, yoga, or astrology, I bring all that mystical stuff down to earth. I want people to “get it.” There are too many out there who want to make shit harder than it needs to be. Talking down to people isn’t my jam. I’m all about uncomplicating the complicated.
I’m an advocate for strong metaphysical businesses. My biz blog posts, courses, monthly podcast and inexpensive mentoring services are designed to help fellow tarotpreneurs and other mystical peeps become confident, thriving business owners. I want to see everyone of my peers succeed. I’m on their side.
My new book, The Tarot Coloring Book, is aimed at total beginners and intermediates who need an experiential way of learning. I get that. I’m a hands-on learner too and remember all too well how frustrating it was when I began. This book is a fun, playful way of getting your tarot on.
I listen. I see what is needed. I show up, ready to lend a hand any way that I can. That’s what drives me.
My work and life are devoted to service. And love. Most of all, love.
What about you?
What is your reason for the work and the other things that you do?
What’s your big why?
Coloring helps even old hats like me absorb the cards. I never noticed the skull in this card!
