Episode 132: December Energy Reading

So You Wanna Be a Witch Episode 132: December Energy Reading. Coffee cup on a table with 3 tarot cards and a planner.

Let’s talk about your desire for control.

We all desire agency and power in our lives, but sometimes our fear of the unknown and our compulsion for control keeps us attached to the less-than-ideal outcomes we are familiar with and keeps us fearful of turning to the possibility in the unknown.

Does that sound familiar?

This month, the cards are asking us to let go of the security blanket of our most precious fears, our most limiting beliefs. They are straight-up telling us to quit being a baby and stop the hemorrhage of self-pity and fear that might be getting us the attention we want, but isn’t moving us forward in our lives or in our businesses.

December is a reminder that, when we shift our perceptions, we start to take different actions.

December is about harnessing our emotion into (com)passionate leadership.

December is why I fucking love belief work and why it is a cornerstone of everything I practice and everything I teach.

Whether you want to be or not, as an entrepreneur, you are in a leadership role with great power. Let’s close out this year by taking responsibility for it.

Join us this week to reclaim your agency and step into your power, whatever the external circumstances you are standing in at the end of this year. 

Show Notes:

1:49– Energy of the Month: King of Cups, reversed. Stop being a baby.

9:20– Action for the Month: King of Wands. Harness your passion.

14:35– Release Work for the Month: Five of Pentacles. Choose how you respond.

17:38– Outcome for the Month: Eight of Swords. You are not as stuck as you think.

Episode 131: Your Minimal Viable Business

Episode 131 So You Wanna Be a Witch: Your Minimal Viable Business. A white coffee mug on a white table.

What is the best that your worst self is capable of?

We build our businesses out of our dreams, which often center us being our best selves—and they should! We want to grow and create our best lives and build businesses to support that. 

But one of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs making is failing to take into account who we are when we are at our worst. 

I believe in personal agency, but I also know we can’t control our external circumstances! When shit hits the fan, when we get sick, when we get overwhelmed, when our world turns upside down, what are our limits? What are our coping mechanisms? What do we need?

So this week, I want to take the concept of the Minimal Viable Product and extend it into a full business model. I want us to look really hard at what “good enough” means and how we can prepare for it. I want us to be honest with ourselves so that we can be honest with our customers. 

We can’t know everything that will happen, but we can know our tendencies and create systems that support them.

Join us this week to face our perfectionism head-on and learn how to do a better job of taking care of ourselves AND our customers, no matter what we’re going through.

Show Notes:

0:15– What does “minimally viable” mean?

6:24– Who are you when shit sucks?

11:29– What are your baseline operations?

15:40– Selling through a shitshow.

Join us this week to brush up on your astrological history and learn why Kirah and I are in love with testimonials.

Episode 129: Building Better Teams Through Human Design with Erin Claire Jones

Episode 129 So You Wanna Be a Witch: Building Better Teams Through Human Design with Erin Claire Jones. Erin lying on her bed and staring into the camera.

How do you tell the difference between a great candidate and a great fit for your team?

It isn’t just the skills that matter, it’s the chemistry.

As a hiring business owner, you could have a pile of stellar resumes with friendly faces to choose from, but the part that you are responsible for reading is: Who will I work best with? Who will fit with the team I already have established? Who will fit into the culture I want to create while also bringing in the pieces that are currently missing?

This can feel like a lot of pressure! So, I was super excited to talk to Erin Claire Jones this week. Erin has used Human Design to help thousands of individuals and companies step into their work and their lives as their truest selves and access their highest potential.

Human Design is pretty new to me, but everyone is talking about it. Based on time, date, and place of birth, Human Design pulls from many different systems to give us a blueprint of how we are best able to thrive.

In this episode, Erin breaks down what Human Design is, how we can use it to better understand ourselves, and how to use that understanding to recognize the people who will best fit into our business. 

Join us this week to hear Erin pick me apart and put all my strengths and shadows on display for y’all! And tune in to learn more about how you can use this system to strengthen your relationships and your business.

Show Notes:

1:57– What is Human Design and how did this become your work?

12:25– Using Human Design in a team.

16:05– Human Design Newb-Edition: The Basics.

35:02– How does your design influence your business structure?
