I’ve spent a good chunk of time since I’ve been back from the Readers Studio getting back to marketing my tarot counselling business. All of us who are self-employed visionaries, counsellors, healers, intuitives, creatives, etc. rely on word-of-mouth referrals to keep our work alive so that we can be of greater service to our world in this time of changes. Two of my favourite resources of late are a book and a website. Respectively, these are:
BOOK. Becoming a Life Coach by David Skibbins.
WEBSITE. www.marketinggoddess.com (Elizabeth Genco Purvis)
Both remind us of the simple and superb ways that we self-jobbers can thrive while enjoying what we do.
My Voyager tarot card for today, pulled for the question, “How can I succeed today?” is the Four of Cups, subtitled “anger” by James Wanless. I’m called to notice something in the world that ticks me off, then do something about it through the services I offer. What I noticed today was a brief newspaper article about people who quit their jobs because of dissatisfaction, regardless of the perceived economic recession out there. It ticks me off that offices, companies, bosses, etc. treat people like chunks of machinery so that their souls feel depleted and they hate what they do. What I intend to do about it is be here for people in career transition, through tarot counselling, personal coaching, and the offering of reiki for peace. Perhaps some helpful combination thereof. If you’re feeling like you need to make a shift, or if you’re in the middle of one, please contact me. The motivational listener is in!
