Soul Proprietor – My writing process

by Theresa Reed on June 12, 2017

Tweet 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 […]

Tweet 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 […]

Soul Proprietor – A lesson on branding

by Theresa Reed on May 22, 2017

Tweet Last week, a lesson on branding unfolded on my Instagram page. I already wrote a bit about this incident on my weekly Hit List but I’ve decided to write about it again because I think there is an important takeaway for soulful businesses. Here’s what happened: I posted a quote on my Instagram page […]

Tweet Sticky palms, quivering knees, that queasy ripple in my belly – no matter how many times I do a public appearance, this never changes. I’m not comfortable amongst groups. I’m an introvert so audiences and crowds make me nervous. My happy business place is being in my office with a mug of tea and […]

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 – 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 […]

Tweet Years ago, a peer lifted the web copy directly from my tarot business consulting page. She shifted a few words around but there was no hiding it. It was my web copy, almost line for line, complete with my slang. When I confronted her, she said it was “standard business practice” to “model your […]
