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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
