My next four workshops (2 in December, and 2 in January) are geared towards those of you who are considering becoming Professional Psychics yourself. They will give you a look at what it takes to successfully interact with your clients and/or students, how to keep your own sanity when those clients and students work so well at draining your energy, and the record keeping necessary to keep IRS happy and simplify your bookkeeping. Location: Mystic Candle & Metaphysical Shop, 6546 E. 22nd St. between Wilmot and Kolb on the south side of the street around the corner from the Cricket store.

In this workshop we will look at the unspoken rule of ethics for interactions with other Professional Psychics individually and at Psychic Fairs. How to price your services and feel like you deserve your due payment. How to connect with your client, the most ideal situation and those that are problematic. How to keep your clients coming back building a growing client basis for repeat business over the years. The mindset needed to maintain an ongoing client relationship. December 29, 2018. Taking Students. Creating a class syllabus, flyer and advertising to find your students. Keeping a student data base to use when you have a new class to promote. Finding a place to hold your classes. Pricing. Outlining the classes, creating class materials, worksheets, etc. and practicing presentation. Getting the students to participate in class exercises and share. The better interaction you have with your students and they have with each other is what keeps your students coming back for more. January 12, 2019. Keeping Your Sanity Doing readings and teaching students takes a lot of your personal energy. You may not even notice it until you realize that you are still tired the next day or two after a fair or class. Sometimes you get so involved with the problems of a client or student that you remain connected on a subconscious level even days after the encounter. This is not good for your health either physically or spiritually. So the first techniques you will learn in this workshop will help you maintain a neutral professional distance while doing a reading or teaching so that you are not psychically and emotionally pushed and pulled by your clients/students demands. And believe me they are demands, though they may not be voiced as you would expect demands to be voiced still the effect their requests have on you is extremely demanding as you try to fulfill each individual need. Then the exercises and meditations given for your personal use after the connection with your client/student is released will help to renew your own spiritual and physical energy level. Used together these will help you maintain your sanity as a Professional Psychic. January 19, 2019. Bookkeeping Records Needed This is the boring and maybe not so fun part of running a professional business but it's absolutely essential to keep IRS off your back and your own budgeting in line. How else will you know if your business is successful or not. Because I have worked for bookkeeping services and for IRS during my more mundane personal life I am well educated in what is required to maintain a good relationship with IRS and how to evaluate your personal financial transactions to create a usable budget. So in this workshop we will look at business bookkeeping and also learn how to fill out your Schedule C and SE Tax Form for IRS. We will also show you how to answer the question of whether or not you need to report your income to IRS. Is it a business or is it a hobby and how do you handle the tax requirements of each.
