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 […]

Soul Proprietor – The exception

by Theresa Reed on January 16, 2017

Tweet Ever have a conversation like this: You: “I’m sorry but I don’t [insert your policy here].” Client: “Why not? Why can’t you make an exception for me?” If you never have, I can tell you that it is one of the most uncomfortable conversations any soulful proprietor will ever experience. You want to have […]

Soul Proprietor – The final word on social media

by Theresa Reed on January 9, 2017

Tweet   “Do I really need social media to succeed?” “What if I don’t like it?” “I don’t think I like it.” “It’s so confusing – I’m not even sure which one to use.” “I don’t have time for it.” My fellow mystical entrepreneurs ask me about social media all the time. Most of them […]

Soul Proprietor – Business Resolutions

by Theresa Reed on January 2, 2017

Tweet   At the beginning of each year, many people make New Year’s resolutions. It’s usually something to do around health such as committing to a new fitness regime.  Yep, I’m one of those people too. In fact, I have a goal that involves finally conquering those ten pounds that I’ve been meaning to get […]

Soul Proprietor – How to deal with an inbox vampire

by Theresa Reed on December 19, 2016

Tweet It starts out innocently enough. Maybe a question about your work or some other such thing. You gladly oblige because you’re nice like that. But then…you’re inundated with a stream of emails from the same person. They have more questions and need your advice again.  In fact, they seem to need your input often. […]
