mystic biz

The work of a spiritual entrepreneur isn’t all rainbows and unicorns (although we wish it were!). A lot of the time, we’re helping clients navigate through difficult situations. Situations like loss, grief, divorce, or illness. Helping people go through the trauma around these sensitive subjects requires great compassion – something most sacred artists have naturally […]

Soul Proprietor – Applying the rules

by Theresa Reed on August 14, 2017

Recently someone purchased a phone session. They wanted to get in “immediately.” I sent off an email with my availability and got a response back saying that they couldn’t wait that long. He wanted an email reading instead. Unfortunately for him, I’m not doing any in August. My availability was clearly posted on my purchase […]

Soul Proprietor – Mistakes will be made

by Theresa Reed on August 7, 2017

Last week, I sent out my newsletter – only to realize a bit later that there was a formatting problem…which mangled the first sentence. Perhaps I could have caught it if I quadruple-checked the darn thing. Or maybe not. Sometimes even a thorough inspection still won’t catch everything. I hate making dumb mistakes like that. […]

Soul Proprietor – Business growth…or not.

by Theresa Reed on July 31, 2017

The conventional business wisdom is to plan for growth. But I’m not a conventional gal so I rarely follow the advice that so many biz people like to put out there. Instead, I like to march to the beat of my own tarotpreneur drum – which is often counterintuitive. Or at least it seems that […]

Soul Proprietor – The show must go on

by Theresa Reed on July 17, 2017

I’ll never forget that night I drove through a raging blizzard to get to a gig. White-out conditions made the roads treacherous. But yet there I was, driving with white-knuckles in a death grip on the wheel and smoking like a fiend to stay calm. I wanted to cancel but the owner of the bar […]

In Danielle LaPorte’s groundbreaking book, The Desire Map, she uses this question as a prompt for planning: How do you want to feel? While the question may be simple, the results are remarkable: once you are clear on how you want to feel, you can put your energy into crafting a life plan or to-do […]

Soul Proprietor – When you can’t make your goal

by Theresa Reed on June 26, 2017

I set a challenge for myself a few weeks ago: I would write 1000 words a day for 70 days. My goal: a rough draft of a new book. Everything was carefully plotted out: I would begin on the New Moon in Gemini (perfect for writers) and make time every day until the task was […]

Soul Proprietor – My writing process

by Theresa Reed on June 12, 2017

I’m working on my second book. In fact, I’ve been plugging away at it for about two weeks now. It’s coming along. A few aspiring authors have reached out to me to inquire about my writing process. Rather than answer each of those, I thought it might be nice to share my method here in […]

I’m a voracious blogger. I have an urge to express ideas and writing seems to be the most natural way for me to do it. If you’re reading this blog right now, you’ll see that I currently blog about four times a week on average. Blogging is great for SEO (search engine optimization). Sharing info […]

  What do you think a successful business looks like? When you think successful do you picture seven figure incomes, million dollar homes and luxurious vacations sitting on a beach with a Mai Tai cocktail in hand? For some, that’s their reality. It’s probably pretty glam. Or at least it may seem that way. When […]
