Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Sheryl Wagner, Psychic Medium, Teacher & Author, based in Canton, MA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a psychic medium, teacher, and author of the book Uncovering Intuition. I connect with clients around the world to help them connect to their loved ones in spirit. I mentor other mediums and intuitive folks looking to connect and deepen their abilities.
Tell us about yourself
To give anyone who's lost a loved one a chance to reconnect, heal, and find peace. To respectfully connect with and receive messages from the spirit world through psychic mediumship for anyone who's struggling to find peace after a loved one's passing. To bridge the gap between the spirit world and the living through evidential mediumship for those who are grieving their human or animal companions so they can find healing, comfort, and peace.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I published my book, Uncovering Intuition, in 2021. Both practical and mystical, this book is a comprehensive guide to all aspects of living an intuitive life. I share my personal journey of breaking down and breaking through and the ways in which intuition has shown up dramatically, helping me to overcome trauma and make my way back to myself. This book is for anyone who desires a truer life and a greater understanding of their purpose.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
One of the most challenging parts of having a spiritual business is being able to manage my energy to ensure that I can serve clients. My intention is always one of loving service, to give comfort, peace, and healing to those who come to me. Love guides me as I move through my day. Finding love wherever you may be is also part of what it means to be connected to spirit.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Develop a business plan. A successful business might be created on a whim but never sustained. If you're serious about starting a business to serve the public offering psychic or mediumship services, you'll need at least an outline of a business plan.
- Define your values. You'll learn a lot from working as a professional psychic or medium, but the best time to get clear with yourself about your values is in the beginning. Even if you have great self-awareness, defining your values and having a mission statement are critical when you own a small business. Putting your values on your website and into your marketing is a great way to let people know who you are and what you stand for.
- Invest in your business. Knowing when and how much to invest in your business takes constant consideration. Over the years, I've worked with website designers, photographers, business coaches, mentors, and social media managers. Some of the people I hired were ethical, and some were completely out of their depth and borderline fraudulent. I recommend researching, asking for multiple referrals, and asking as many questions as you need to feel comfortable when you're investing in your business.
