What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is Astrology. I serve anyone interested in Astrology. The majority of my clients tend to be mid-life women dealing with transition or trauma.
Tell us about yourself
I have been interested in Astrology since I was very young. I was the youngest of 9 kids, and my mother used to use Astrology to try to figure us all out! I have always been fascinated by it but never really understood it. In my career, I stayed on the traditional path and became a teacher. I taught young children for over 30 years, and that experience just solidified my interest in the Sun, Moon, stars, and all the planets! Foremost, I could always tell when a Full Moon was coming...just from feeling the children's energy rise to wildness! And being on recess duty, it was evident too. Bloodcurdling screams...for no reason. Also an increase in arguments, fights, and crying. So, first, I became fascinated with the Moon, and then I became fascinated with the planets and the effect their movement and conversations with other planets affect us. Then I double-downed on Natal Charts, and when I started peeling back the layers of information contained in Natal Charts, I was hooked for life! I started studying Astrology in depth around 2016 and then did a Pandemic Pivot and decided to leave teaching and practice Astrology full-time. A lot of people argue that there is no scientific proof for Astrology. I don't look at Astrology as a science; I look at it as a language and art. A lot of people say, "I don't believe in Astrology." My usual response is, do you believe in French?
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Becoming a certified Moonologer and creating the Moon Magic Monthly membership group with my friend and business partner, Jenna Partridge, who is a Reiki Master. We meet on every New Moon and Full Moon and combine manifesting with the Moon and Group Reiki sessions.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Being responsible for EVERYTHING!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Just go for it! The world needs you and your gifts.
- Collaborate with like-minded people.
- Never stop learning, and don't be afraid to invest money (in advertising and coaching, especially).
