Episode 158: June Energy Reading

So You Wanna Be a Witch Episode 158: June Energy Reading. Sarah's hangs shuffling a tarot deck on a rock wall

Business is a trickster!

Sometimes, we dedicate ourselves to a system and see dramatic results. Sometimes, we do everything “right” and flop, but the random offer that we threw up in a whirl of inspiration (and little forethought) is wildly successful.

Y’all know I love systems and data, but this month the cards are letting us know that we will be rewarded for straying from the beaten path. This month, we are being invited to play with the parts of ourselves that feel dangerous and the business strategies that stretch our comfort zone.

June is about playing the game and playing with fire. We are asked to firmly center our purpose, while being fast and loose with our methods. We are asked to take risks with what feels “right” for us, trusting our moral compass and trusting that we have a solid sense of self to return home to.

Tune in this week for this month’s business energy reading and let me challenge you into writing your own personal Business Manifesto!

Show Notes:

1:17– Energy of the Month: The Devil. How we do we learn from a teacher we cannot trust?

6:16– Action of the Month: Queen of Blades. Boundaries and the capacity for imagination.

10:55– Release of the Month: Jack of Blades. Give up the fight.

17:29: Outcome of the Month: Three of Staves. #winning.

Episode 156: What’s in a “Good Job”?

So You Wanna Be a Witch Episode 156: What's in a "Good Job"? Sarah Chappell smiling into the camera.

Who tells you that you’re doing a good job?

If you are a grown-up, solo entrepreneur, you don’t have a boss or a teacher or a parent telling you that you checked all your boxes and gotten a good report card. So, whose voice do you hear at the end of the day when you declare “I did a good job!” or “I didn’t measure up”?

Is that voice measuring your work against your values? Or the values of a system you are trying to create your way out of? Do you WANT to believe the archetypes of The Boss, The Teacher, and The Parent that live in our minds rent free?

As an entrepreneur, YOU get to decide what defines a good job! YOU get to decide what metrics you use to define good work. YOUR values are what matter!

This week on the podcast, I am picking apart the concept of the goodness, redefining what a “Good Job” is, and giving you two steps to reorient your relationship to success and feedback.

Tune in this week for a reminder that a values-led business requires using those same values to assess our own personal success.

Show Notes:

1:13– Who says you’re doing a “Good Job”?

2:42– What’s behind a “Good Job”?

7:01– Redefining goodness

12:56– Assessing the order of operations

Episode 154: Breath Liberation with Chauna Bryant

So You Wanna Be a Witch Episode 154: Breath Liberation with Chauna Bryant. Breathwork.

Our students are real people!

Many of us get into spiritual work to “help people,” but the world of spiritual learning can be fraught with dehumanization and forced vulnerability. When we are taught practices through experiences that demand we leave our own needs and perspectives behind, it can be easy to turn around and pass that on to our own students.

What becomes possible when we strip back the layers of ego and remember that we are working with real people?

This week on the podcast, I am thrilled to talk with Chauna Bryant. Chauna is a Breathwork Meditation facillitator, and GYROTONIC and Pilates instructor who has just launched her own trauma-informed, anti-racist, inclusive breathwork facilitator training.

In this episode, Chauna and I talk about the ethics of leadership and becoming spiritual teachers. We talk about the corruption we have seen passed down from gurus to teachers and the recent wave of pushback we are seeing from students. Chauna shares her experience of pulling away from her teacher’s lineage to teach breathwork that integrates, rather than erases, the politicized experience of living in this world.

This episode is about building the trainings we wish we’d had access to, so we can disrupt the egocentric guru bullshit that is so rampant in spiritual teaching and mentorship. It’s about the power of collaboration, the wisdom of giving credit, and the grace of admitting when we are wrong.

Tune in this week for more on trauma-informed teaching and a reminder that you should be able to bring your whole self to your spiritual development.

Show Notes:

8:53 – What are breathwork and pilates?

15:37 – Stepping into leadership and why Chauna created her own training.

25:53 – Guru bullshit. Learning to embrace that we don’t know everything and the ethics of spiritual training.

45:38 – Chauna’s virtual Breathwork Facilitator Training.

Episode 153: Business on a Budget Redux

So You Wanna Be a Witch Episode 153: Business on a Budget Redux. Sarah Chappell laughing with her eyes closed into the camera.

You can’t grow a business you never start!

Don’t let your current bank account determine when you start your business. Creating a new stream of income might require some investment, but chances are, you don’t need the top tier of costly professional tools to get going.

Business on a Budget is one of our most popular episodes, but times are changing and some of the information that I gave you back in 2019 is no longer relevant. Here is an update!

In this episode, I cover TONS of tools, resources, and tips for getting an online business off the ground for cheap and free. This includes: software, platforms, payment processors, communication tools, finances, and more. 

I give you the list of everything I use now AND an updated list of what I would use if I were starting my tech stack from scratch today.

Tune in this week for a plethora of options that make online business accessible, and stay until the end of the episode for my very favorite launch hack (please don’t narc on me!).

I want my audience to know about every price accessible tool there is, so if I missed anything, please send me a DM on Instagram and I’ll post it in my stories!

Show Notes:

6:11– Business Organization

14:56– Collecting Payments

22:35– Content Platforms

37:28– Physical Products

41:52– Emails & Newsletters

45:35– Finances
