Tweet   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. […]

Tweet I was at an event a few years back when I observed a woman “working the room.” She was approaching strangers with a trained smile and hungry look in her eyes. There was little time for small talk. Once the introductions were made, she launched into her sales pitch. The faces on the other […]

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 – 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 – 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 […]

Soul Proprietor – Business and politics

by Theresa Reed on February 6, 2017

Tweet   I’m not a football person at all. I leave stuff for my buddy Jill, who is kinda like my personal Howard Cosell. I only learn what’s happening in the sports world by watching her Facebook feed. But this year, I decided I would watch the half time show. Lady Gaga would be performing […]

Soul Proprietor – How to please everybody

by Theresa Reed on January 30, 2017

Tweet   A few days ago, I posted one of my daily tarot draws on one of my social media platforms. It was a heavy-duty card. Some reader took umbrage to that card, and decided to leave a comment stating that all I posted was “doom and gloom.” They also made mention that in five […]

Soul Proprietor – Listen up…or not

by Theresa Reed on December 5, 2016

Tweet Sometimes  your clients or coaches may have suggestions for your business.  You might want to listen to those suggestions…or not. For example, I’ve had clients ask me for 45 minute sessions for a while now. They felt that they needed more than the standard 30 minutes but not quite a full hour (cause I’m […]

Soul Proprietor – Keeping your clients

by Theresa Reed on November 28, 2016

Tweet I love getting a massage.  It’s my favorite form of self care. A few years back, I was getting massages from a guy that I really liked. He was super strong, efficient, and I always felt great after seeing him. But the drive was further than I liked so I stopped going.  I began […]
