Episode 65: July Business Energy Reading

July is upon us, and it’s time to check-in and ask: are we showing up to serve?

So often in business we let our worries and fears of not being enough or feeling like a fraud stop us from doing our jobs.

In the month of July, those energies will challenge us to step fully into our roles as masters of our work, wherever we are along the continuum of learning and experience. Why? Because we’re here to help people, and choosing our fears over the impact we could have if we acted from belief in our mastery is choosing our comfort zone over changing the world.

If this episode has been of service to you please share with a friend who needs to hear this. Leave us a review on iTunes so the energy reading can reach more people.

Show Notes:

2:23 – Energy for the Month (9 of Pentacles Rev.)

This month, we may have a tendency to shy away from affirming how brilliant we are, or the mastery we have achieved. As business owners we need to put ourselves out there, and by resisting this energy we keep ourselves in a comfort zone.

8:04 – Action for the Month (The Chariot)

You are on the right path, affirm your vision and keep going! The Chariot will help hold your visions, even if the journey will take longer than you would like.

10:50 – Release for the Month (Wheel of Fortune)

Let go of control and worry. Let got of needing to know what is coming next and keep your focus on your vision and building your mastery.

17:13 – Outcome for the Month (The Empress Rev.)

You are being called to approach your business with logic and an analytical brain this month. Try challenging yourself to create out of need rather than deep connection.

AMJ of Brown Girl Tarot on So You Wanna Be A WitchAMJ, founder of Brown Girl Tarot™, is on the show sharing their journey becoming a tarot reader and  building an online resource for tarot decks made by people of color, and folks with other identities that are underrepresented in tarot.

In this episode, AMJ shares how they learned to embrace that they’re not the reader for everyone, the confirmation they received that they were on the right path, and how tarot is an accessible starting point for POC and queer individuals who are digging back into their indigenous and traditional practices.

Episode 63: Launching Your Offer

We tend to think of launching in our business as something you do one time to get things started, but in reality we can launch anything at anytime! In this month’s business training episode I go over the important factors to creating a successful launch and how to get the right people to invest in it.

I love this launch model because it is the best way to engage your audience, and make them an offer, so much so that I shared all the specific steps I took in my latest launch over on the So You Wanna Be A Witch Facebook Group.

If you would like more information on the Holistic Business Incubator mentioned in the episode, you can request an application by messaging me on Instagram @sarahmchappell or emailing me at sarah@sarahmchappell.com.

Episode 62: Clara Bailey

Clara Bailey

In this episode of the podcast, we have a chat with Clara Bailey, a naturopath who specializes in menstrual cycle health and natural fertility. Our bodies, moods, and brains are not separate from our businesses, and Clara gives us tips on how to tap into our natural cycles to better support us in more challenging times of the month, and support the work we are doing instead of work against it.

Many of us have grown up thinking that period pain and PMS is a normal part of the menstrual process, but this doesn’t have to be the case! Clara helps show us that connecting with and supporting our bodies’ natural cycles can help us tap into our intuition, and how we can use it to create a more functional workflow as small business owners.
