Episode 90 February Energy Reading

Tarot cards on rock. Sarah Chappell February Energy Tarot Reading for Holistic Business.

We all know that February is well on the other side of the Winter Solstice and it is technically getting lighter every day, but doesn’t it just kinda feel like the darkest month? Well, February’s energy reading is pulling us into that darkness.

This month, the cards invite us into Judgement. Oh, that’s plenty easy. We know how to judge people all damn day! Except, this card calls us to pause and turn those judgements over in our hands. What does our envy, our criticism, our trigger, say about what we want and what we think we are allowed to have? Judgement can be fun when it’s pointed at other people, and less fun when it invites us to take a good, long, honest look at ourselves. This is the work of digging into our personal muck: facing our failures, admitting our role in our own grievances, dissecting our jealousy, and holding ourselves accountable.

February is a lot of work, friends. Honestly? I pulled these cards and wanted to go take a nap! The hardest part of this work is that it doesn’t have an end. It’s not the work you can check off and get a gold star and a success story from. It’s the ongoing work of our lives, which means it has to be sustainable. Yes, the cards give us a lot of work to do this month, but they also tell us how to move into that work in balance.

Ready for that deep work? Tune into this episode. Ready to go even deeper? Come to Dollywood with me! No, I’m not kidding. Check out the episode for more details.

Show Notes:

4:23—Energy of the Month: Judgement. Where have I set myself up for failure?

11:30— Action for the Month: Temperance. Don’t get lost in the dark! Balance, as always, is key.

14:55— Release Work for the Month: 9 of Pentacles. Make mistakes! Letting go of mastery, in favor of growth. 

19:08— Outcome of the Month: Justice Reversed. Doing the work when we know it doesn’t lead to immediate payoff.

Join Sarah Chappell and Dana Balicki on a Retreat to Dollywood!

Episode 89: Are You Afraid To Call Yourself an Expert?

Sarah Chappell strikes silly pose on sidewalk. Business witch, Soul centered business. Being your own expert. Expertise in business. Business witch.

Welcome to the Valley of Despair! That land of self-doubt and hesitancy, where you know enough to know just how much there still is to learn.

In this episode, I talk about the vulnerability of claiming expertise and stepping into leadership. Oh hey, you over there with that tiny fledgling Etsy account! Did you think you could skip this one because it doesn’t apply to you? Sorry, but starting any business is, inherently, the work of leadership. Are you uncomfortable yet?

Y’know, one of the best compliments I have gotten about the support I offer is that it is “so good and so ouchie,” and that is what I am bringing to the table this week. Yes, this is a call to claim your gifts and charge forward into the world, but it is also a reminder about who loses out when we don’t do that. Guess what? You’re not just hurting your numbers or your pride, you’re also letting down people who need you. When we refuse to stand in our power and claim what we know, we can’t attract the people who need us. Being disruptive and polarizing with our deepest beliefs isn’t alienating; it is the action that creates an abundance of opportunity for everyone.

Join us this week as we shake off false-modesty and claim our experience! Oh, and bring a pencil. I have some exercises for you.

Show Notes:

3:30– False modesty as a self-fulfilling prophecy

6:44– Leadership, yikes!

10:06– Stepping into your role and letting the right people find you

20:05– Differentiation as a doorway to abundance: there is more than enough to go around!

Episode 88: 2019 Year in Review

Sarah Chappell sitting on couch with pen poised on notebook. Holistic business, business witch, soul-centered business, year end review.

We’re slowly wading into 2020, which is a great time to take stock of the last year: What we achieved, where we fell short, and how we grew. It’s time to pat ourselves on the back and be proud, because all of that learning deserves to be celebrated! This week, I review my 2019 business year by looking at my goals, my challenges, what worked really well, and what really didn’t. 

I share my experience of starting a membership site, and how it changed my relationship with my work life. I talk about finding my center for my business, allowing my health to take precedent over my numbers, and look at what good boundaries can do for business. Spoiler Alert: Constant engagement and working 24/7 isn’t the answer. (Huh, weird). Turns out, time management and personal boundaries are magic and working less actually made more space for the growth I wanted.

I also share my personal philosophy about goals, and dig into the stories I was telling about myself that were keeping me from offering my best gifts.

Please join me in this retrospective and bop on over to instagram to chime in! I want to know about your goals, your stories, and what you are carrying forward into 2020.

Show Notes:

1:50– What are you most proud of?

9:37– What worked in 2019

19:45– What didn’t work in 2019

25:13– The pacing of this business year
