Tarot talks write-up
Tarot Talks: Tarot talks has stemmed from my personal experiences that led me to the path of spirituality, to tap the power within, and thereby the realization that I need to give back to the world in whichever ways I can! Tarot talks is the platform through which I guide people who seek help in different aspects of life, such as relationships, career, health, and finance.
Founder’s/Owner’s story and what motivated them to start the business
To begin with, I was not at all someone who will sit and meditate. In fact, I was not someone who could sit quietly for few minutes, let alone meditate. But well, life has it’s own way to teach you things, and I was no exception. After a series of unfortunate events, or rather I would like to put it as some life changing events, I landed up into spirituality.
A couple of years ago, my cousin, who happens to be an astrologer, suggested me to start Tarot reading. But at that time, I was so caught up with challenges of life, and having zero knowledge of Tarot, I just pushed away the idea. In fact, Tarot was so Greek to me, that it immediately brought the images of witches that they show in movies, doing some fancy things. And honestly, the thought just freaked me out and I was a little irritated at what my cousin was asking me to do! Lol!!
But like I said, life has its own way and plans, no matter what we think or decide! So, in one of those tough days, I visited a Tarot reader with the same cousin. As soon as I sat opposite him, the first sentence he told me was “You can do my reading!!”. That was it! I just looked at my cousin, who was as speechless as I!
So that’s how I started taking it seriously. I started meditating more, building my intuition, seeking the guidance within, studying tarot cards, bought my first deck, and well, my journey as a tarot reader began!
So far, I have had a blissful experience of doing readings for my clients, and I shall continue to serve people in every possible way!
The challenges the business/market is facing
Though tarot is a beautiful spiritual tool, there are a lot of misconceptions about Tarot and Tarot readers. Most of which we can attribute to the images of Tarot readers shown in the entertainment industry! And we cannot blame people entirely for it, as I too was a part of them a couple of years ago. It is sad to see that people associate Tarot with something evil, or witchy, and though they are curious and want to know what Tarot has to say about their situation, they do not like being associated with it. This means the general attitude is “I want to get the reading done, but I cannot write testimony” or “No one should know about it”. So even if people have amazing experiences, they are not ready to testify in public and this creates a challenge in terms of “spreading the word” in digital form, and creating awareness too!
The second biggest challenge is people are not willing to pay! It’s like ok, I want to see what this is all about, but well what? Do I have to pay?! 🙂
The opportunities the business/market is facing
Social media like Youtube and Instagram are some of the great platforms for entrepreneurs to start showcasing their work! Creating free content to give a glimpse of what you have to offer is the best way to get started. Give as much as possible, build the trust, and that’s how you can build your clientele.
Advice to others about business
Give, give, and, give! The intention of any business should be to serve or add value to people’s lives, via your business. Trying to make the lives of people better should be your primary goal, and the money will follow! Having said that, DO NOT shy away from charging for your services. After all, you are investing your time and energy in making someone’s life better, and that should be valued and respected!
