Episode 123: Queer Witchcraft and Anticapitalism with Anna Joy

Episode 123 So You Wanna Be a Witch. Anna Joy. Anticapitalism. Queer witch. Queer Coven.

Y’all, this week I am so pumped to introduce you to The Queer Witch! Anna Joy is a millennial queer witch who creates space and visibility for trans, nonbinary, and queer members of the witchcraft community. Anna Joy has also been coaching other witches on how to run their own successful online business since 2019. 

In this episode, we talk about creating the content that we want to see in the world. Anna Joy shares their experience of looking for knowledge and community as a queer witch and how it lead them to running the successful podcast and membership program they felt was missing!

We discuss the nuance of being anti-capitalist entrepreneurs and our journeys in overcoming the fear of having “enough”. We go deep in money-shame and pick apart the myths of professionalism and hierarchy when it comes to running a business, crafting content, and creating jobs. 

Join us this week to queer your idea of money magic and learn about the concept of “pleasure-oriented hiring”!

Show Notes:

4:43– Creating the content you want to see: podcasting!

10:52– Consistency and trauma awareness in business.

19:50– Hiring and getting help for your business.

Episode 122: Lessons From a Year of HBA

Episode 122 So You Wanna Be a Witch. Lessons From a Year in HBA. Sarah Chappell looking open-mouth excited in front of her laptop.Happy Anniversary, HBA!

Can you believe that it’s been a year since I first launched the Holistic Business Academy? I sure can’t. When I first rolled it out last fall, I could never have imagined what this year was going to hold. I wasn’t “ready” and I had never done something like this before. Yet, here we stand and I just couldn’t be more proud. 

So, this week on the podcast I am taking you through all the big lessons I have learned in my first year of running a membership site. I want to share all the things I am so glad I did, all the things I’m learning I need to do differently, and what it takes to keep the humanity I cherish in a scalable business.

Join me this week, as I get real vulnerable with my revenue numbers and even more excited about my goals for HBA.

Show Notes:

3:59– How I set us up for success.

9:58– My day-to-day work as the owner of a membership site.

16:04– Not everyone likes me and that’s ok!

26:59– The reality of scale: More help, please!

45:52– The Seven Figure Mindset and my goals for moving forward.

Elemental Self-Care with Gabriela Herstik

episode 121 So You Wanna Be a Witch. Gabriela Herstik looking down over her shoulder in front of a pink curtain and flowers.

This week, I am so excited to be talking with author, fashion alchemist, and fellow witch Gabriela Herstik! Gabriela is legitimately GLAMOROUS and reminds us that we can still reject standards of beauty, while embracing fashion, beauty, and artistry in clothing as everyday magic.

With a new guided journal coming out, Gabriela has a lot to say about self-care. Gabriela is a practitioner of elemental magic and in this episode, she takes us deep into the ways we can connect with the elements to structure the rituals of our self-care. She shares real examples of practices she uses and suggestions for ways to get more in touch with this way of relating to ourselves and our world.

Join us this week and hear us talk about our quarantine underwear. Yes, quarantine underwear.

Show Notes:

8:12– Fashion, glamour, and witchcraft.

14:56– Daily magic as self care

19:10– Working with the system of the elements

29:14– Insight into Gabriela’s books, including her new one: Embody Your Magick, coming out this month.

Episode 120: The Three Pillars of Holistic Business

ep 120 So You Wanna Be a Witch: The 3 Pillars of Holistic Business. Sarah Chappell smirking at the camera in front of a green wall.

Ever curious about what goes on behind closed doors over at the Holistic Business Academy? This week on the podcast, I’m taking an episode to share the basics of the framework I teach in HBA. 

What does it mean to call a business “holistic”? What are the foundational steps of growing a business that supports you and your community? Why does business matter? More crucially: why is small business important in the context of all the big crises and change happening in our world right now? How do we apply these ideas in real, tangible ways that impact our experiences, our businesses, and our spheres of influence? I talk about all of this and more, as I break down the three pillars of creating and growing a holistic business.

Join me this week and take a step toward actualizing the business owner you want to be.
