Soul Proprietor – Attribution

by Theresa Reed on April 24, 2017

Tweet Last week, I stumbled upon another Tarot Lady site. This one is located in India. There are a few of us tarot ladies all over the world. We coexist just fine. Each one of us is our own entity – true individuals with separate personalities but a shared love of tarot. It’s all good. […]

Soul Proprietor – Brave steps

by Theresa Reed on April 17, 2017

Tweet Running your own business requires courage. Each day is a series of brave steps. The first day you put out your shingle. That took guts. That day you received your first paid client? Another brave step. This was your first chance to prove yourself to them…and to yourself. Ever say no to working with […]

Tweet At some point in your entrepreneurial journey, you’re going to hit a wall. Suddenly, instead of churning out volumes of work with ease, nothing comes. You’ve drawn a blank and your brain refuses to cooperate. Or your brick wall look something like this: you’re doing the same thing, day in and day out. You’re […]

Soul Proprietor – Peer Review

by Theresa Reed on April 3, 2017

Tweet Years ago, early in my career, a woman who owned a metaphysical shop took a dislike to me. It didn’t matter that I helped her get the shop up and running or that I had been a popular draw to her shop. She turned on me for reasons that I still don’t understand to […]

Soul Proprietor – You won’t know until you try

by Theresa Reed on March 27, 2017

Tweet A long time ago, one of my elderly clients called me with the news that she had broken her hip. She would no longer be able to climb up my stairs much less drive across town to see me. “I was wondering if you could do my reading over the phone?” My reply: “I […]

Soul Proprietor – Spring clean your business!

by Theresa Reed on March 20, 2017

Tweet Happy Spring Equinox! Maybe it’s just me but I am feeling that spring time vibe – time to clean! I’d consider myself pretty clean overall but I’m cluttery. Messy as can be. Stacks of books are everywhere. I have regular routines to stay on top of this stuff but even with that, things can […]

Soul Proprietor – Taking Responsibility

by Theresa Reed on March 13, 2017

Tweet In our local hood, there were two stores. One, a chain that wasn’t very good but it was affordable and had a fairly large selection of goods. The other one was a poorly-run small family-owned operation that was over-priced with a limited selection but had a decent deli and butcher shop. One day, the […]

Soul Proprietor – The Hired Help

by Theresa Reed on March 6, 2017

Tweet I’ll never forget that day, sitting in the airport restaurant.  My husband and I needed to kill a bit of time on a layover so we decided to get something to eat. A well-dressed man sat at the table next to me. The waiter came over to him with a glass of water and […]

Soul Proprietor – That’s not the way I work

by Theresa Reed on February 27, 2017

Tweet There is a woman who has used my email tarot reading services many times in the past. I’ll call her: the deal seeker. The deal seeker is determined to “get her money’s worth” which means she’s also fixated on “getting as much detail as possible” and endless follow up questions in order to “get […]

Soul Proprietor – Because sometimes you need support too

by Theresa Reed on February 13, 2017

Tweet Recently, I was struggling with that same old issue that always dogs me: boundaries. It’s been a life lesson and has often shown up in my business. This time, it centered around a new policy I created last year. It was a simple one designed to make me feel safe. Yet some people (complete […]
