Episode 119: September Energy Reading

Episode 119 So You Wanna Be a Witch: September Energy Reading. Coffee cup and 3 tarot cards pulled from a deck on a white table

September is a month of reversals, y’all. Literally every card! This month, we’re looking at what we have already done and what we are still resisting. It’s a wake up call, a celebration, a pause, and a calling in.

Are you over-consuming to cover shame and insecurity? Remember that consumption isn’t just for cake and Amazon. Sometimes it’s knowledge, classes, books, social media, and external validation, too! We have four months left of 2020, and it’s time to consider what we really want to do with them.

These cards remind us to pause, to take stock of what we have done, and celebrate everything we can think of. September calls us to community accountability and personal empowerment. It calls us strategy, instead of stagnation. 

Tune in this week and remember the joy we are fighting for.

Show Notes:

1:30– Energy of the Month: 4 of wands reversed. Celebrate yourself

8:54– Action of the Month: Queen of wands reversed. Find your personal power.

18:24– Release Work of the Month: 3 of cups reversed. Personal agency in community.

25:35– Outcome of the Month: 7 of swords reversed. Strategy is magic.

Episode 117: Your Actual Job as an Entrepreneur

episode 117 So You Wanna Be A Witch. Your Actual Job as an Entrepreneur. Sarah Chappell smiling as she interacts with a barista.

I get a lot of this in my DMs: “Hey Sarah! I’m really excited to be getting my business off the ground, but I have no idea where to start! I’m so overwhelmed! Can you help point me in the right direction? Or… any direction?”

Starting your first business can be overwhelming because there are so many things that need to get done, and probably even more that you haven’t thought of yet! Where do you focus? What do you save for later? Were the three hours you spent debating between fonts for your webpage really worth it? (Probably not, y’all.)

This episode is for you! And it’s also for you business owners who are looking ahead and trying to figure out where to grow and how to move your business forward.

In this episode, I talk about inertia, procrastination, and clarity. I point out the most common places I see people wasting their energy, and remind business owners what their three concrete jobs are. I break down how to think about the money you make in relation to the offers you create, and invite you to answer some specific, clarifying questions about your business. Ultimately, I want you walking away from this episode with a strong idea of what results you get from the tasks you do, so that you easily know what to prioritize, what to delegate, and what not to bother with.

Join us this week to refocus and get the most out of your time and energy as a business owner. 

If you loved this episode and want more, you’ll be excited to hear that the Holistic Business Academy is re-opening to the public in September!

Episode 116: Instagram Wizardry and Land Stewardship with Cat from @theolivetreesandthemoon

episode 116 so you wanna be a witch theolivetreesandthemoon. Side view of Cat looking down at her knitting.

You probably know Cat from her beautiful instagram account @theolivetreesandthemoon. She is a land steward, knitter, folk herbalist and mother who believes in the magic of where one stands, deeply rooted in bio-regional characteristics. Her grid is a gorgeous collection of snapshots from her life on a dreamy hill in Portugal that will have you drooling over some Slow Living fantasies. But did you know about her secret life?

In this episode, I do get to talk with her about her process of finding home on the land she lives on, creating community, and finding groundedness in the act of making. I also get her to spill a dark secret: her grid aesthetics landed her a job as a social media consultant!

So, after we cover the ins and outs of her dreamy life, we dive into the messy world of social media: the beauty of the connection, and the false sense of intimacy. The inspiration and the comparison. The information superhighway and the echo chamber of opinions. Cat shares the ways that consulting has changed her relationship with social media and the boundaries she needs to keep her personal life separate from her professional one. She talks about the phenomenon of shock, when followers find out that instagram influencers do not share their politics and why it is so important to take activism offline and into our physical communities. 

Join us this week for a reality check on what goes on behind your favorite social media accounts and a reminder to go outside and make something with your hands.

Show Notes:

5:00– How did you come to the land you live on?

15:00– Building a house vs. inheriting the story and tending the story of old homes

21:26– The duality of being a homesteader and being something of a public figure because of social media.

27:23– Boundaries between professional and personal social media

35:33– The false intimacy of social media and the echo chambers of the internet: Yes, that person you’ve followed for years might actually be racist!
