Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

Don’t Freak Out About A Bad Review

  What should you do when you get a bad review? I see time and time again – people like you and me who are doing readings and putting their hearts and souls into their work – feeling down in the dumps about a bad review or negative feedback. Don’t worry, Sensitive Spiritual Entrepreneur! Bad reviews come with the territory. You have to learn to use some of the negative feedback you get to up your game – and also to fully appreciate the fact that you won’t please or connect well with everyone. Some of the clients even lie about their situations and then get mad at us for pointing out that we see the truth! Now, don’t think I am saying to ignore scores of bad reviews! If you are getting more bad reviews than good reviews, check your work. Are you giving your clients 100% of your attention or are you multitasking or having more than one conversation at a time? Are your kids making a lot of noise in the background? Is your connection clear and crisp, or do you need a new headset and microphone to chat on? Is your computer fast enough? Do you need to polish your psychic, communication, or typing skills? Are you staying logged in through the night, groggily answering chat requests when they wake you from a deep slumber? How’s your attitude? If bad reviews aren’t a common thing for you, then your bad review or feedback might be due to one of the following things: You don’t say what the client wants to hear Many of our clients are...
Let Inspiration Drive Action

Let Inspiration Drive Action

  Perhaps the coffee hit my brain in exactly the right way this morning… It might be the New Moon in Gemini that’s turning some internal tides. I don’t know – and it doesn’t really matter all that much. Whatever it was has me rushing to get out my calendar and to get organized so that I can achieve what I truly want to with my life and with my business. I’m in ultra-achiever-mode. I need to harness this energy and use it to ACCOMPLISH MY GOALS! You see, it’s so easy for me to get totally sucked into LIVING – which isn’t bad on one hand, but – when I look back and see what I had wanted to achieve and wanted to do this year – well, I feel bad about myself because I haven’t regularly done ANYTHING and I don’t feel like I’ve accomplished so much. I mean my kids are fed and my house is reasonably tidied and my hubby is all loved up, but I don’t feel like I’ve actually done anything for myself or my business. No regular blog posts. No regular weekly readings. No regular emails going out to my list. No regular posts to Instagram or to Facebook. No regular visits to the museum. No regular workouts. No regular time for meditation. Despite the fact that I feel like I work ALL. THE. TIME., I’m not getting the results I want. And that feels bad. So, I want to get organized – get an action plan into place – get some short-term goals set that will help me build toward the long-term...
Don’t Waste Your Daily Readings – 4 Ways to Make Your Readings Unique

Don’t Waste Your Daily Readings – 4 Ways to Make Your Readings Unique

Personally, I see a lot of card readings on social media. You, too? If you are anything like me, your life revolves around tarot and cartomancy just a wee-little-bit. You might be a part of card reading groups of all sorts, follow many different readers, and even post your own readings on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, like I do. If you are posting readings on social media, you need to find a way to make yours stand out from the crowd. Unfortunately, many of the readings I come across don’t really serve the reader – they just blend anonymously into the background of dozens of one, two, or three card readings. Honestly, the biggest mistake I see people make is just posting a picture of a card and the companion book’s description (or a simple, non-invested description of the card). Posting a picture of a card with a description from the book (or app) doesn’t really make a reading stand out. In my opinion, it’s a better way to advertise a deck than it is to advertise your reading business. (No problem with that if you created the deck yourself!)     Why is that a mistake? Because the reader who is posting the reading hasn’t taken the time to personalize (a.k.a. brand) the reading at all. There aren’t any visual cues to point to who the reader is. There isn’t any personality infused into the reading, itself. So, how can a you personalize your posts so that people will automatically know who posted the reading? 1) Put a business card into the picture. This is a simple tactic...
Biz Tip Tuesday – Using Your Intuition to Drive Your Business

Biz Tip Tuesday – Using Your Intuition to Drive Your Business

  Hi Beautiful Souls! I’ve been on a roll with the ‪#‎BizTipTuesday‬ posts this week! One thing I totally believe in is using your intuition to guide your business decisions. We are spiritual entrepreneurs whose focus IS working with intuition, right? So why avoid it when dealing with your business, clients, marketing, etc.? Let your intuition guide you in your business. Act on those little nudges you get. Let yourself follow Divine Guidance when working on new offers, workshops, and even total changes of direction. Do what feels good to you. Don’t do things that make you feel uncomfortable or that you “just don’t get to” because those aren’t the right things for you! This applies to clients and people on your pages as well. You have every right to turn away potential clients who aren’t a good fit. You have every right to block trolls. You have every right to enforce the rules and boundaries you set in place for yourself and your business. It’s totally OK! I am really working on getting stronger with the boundaries – if someone does something that makes me uncomfortable, I address it. If I have to ban a person on my Periscope broadcasts – or even from my Spiritual Business Basics group, I do. If someone pushes my buttons, I have to pass on them to keep my own vibration toward what I do and who I allow in my space high. I don’t want to argue or nag, and I certainly don’t want to avoid what I’ve worked so hard to create. I want to uplift and inspire – and...
How Do You Tag and Hashtag Posts?

How Do You Tag and Hashtag Posts?

One of the things that newbie entrepreneurs don’t understand is how to tag and hashtag posts they create for their social media pages. This quick how-to will fill you in on the details, and some of the rules to follow when tagging and hashtagging posts. How to tag people in posts (@) When you tag someone in a post, you let that person know that you’ve mentioned them. So, tagging someone is kind of like the social media equivalent of tapping someone on the shoulder and directing the person to something you’ve posted. To tag your business or the business of another person (hopefully someone you know or have mentioned in your work, or who you think would be genuinely interested in your post), you usually put an @ sign and then the person’s Facebook or Twitter name. For example, if you wanted to tag me in a Twitter post, you’d type @sueellissaller. The same idea works in Facebook, Instagram, and many other social media sites. Be sure to check that the name that auto-populates into your post is the right person! Many people have social media names that don’t exactly match their real names, so you need to find out exactly who you are tagging in order to make sure that you are tagging the right Mary Smith or Tommy Jones. How to use hashtags (#) When you add a hashtag to a post, you assign that post to a specific topic, like #angelreadings, #tarot, #bizadvice, etc. Hashtags make your posts come up if someone is searching for a particular subject. Twitter was the first social media site to...
