Episode 73: October Business Energy Reading

It’s finally fall! We’ve reached the fourth quarter of the year, and it’s time to take stock of where we are and where we want to go in our businesses.

This month’s energy reading is a bit of a challenge: it’s time to finally let go of the offers and products you maintain because of what other folks tell you to do.

That’s right! YOU are the creator of your business, and you get to decide what you make in this world.

In this episode you’ll also hear about how Sarah had her best month ever in business after removing an income stream, and her thoughts on integrity in business—and how she has failed to be true to that value.

Episode 69: August Energy Reading

Business Tarot Reading Sarah M. Chappell

Y’all, July was a lot of feelings, and as business owners this can become really challenging. August wants us to come out on the other side, but will we do the work?

When we are affected by the astrology of the world or by things outside (or inside) of us, it ultimately affects our businesses. These things are not separate, but will we let our emotions get the best of us? The outcome is up to us and we have to choose. What direction do we want to go? Where do we want to end up?

August wants us to lay some groundwork for the months ahead, and this means cleaning things up and doing some prepwork. So, Soulpreneurs, what does this refinement period look like for you?

What does it actually mean to be a Shaman? And I’m not talking the 11 day retreat and now you’re suddenly a Shaman kind of thing.

In this week’s podcast episode, we meet Carmen Morales, a Shamanic practitioner from Peru who lives in Australia.
