When it's all fun and games until you ask for the money

It's funny how we can be so comfortable posting and sharing and being social...until we have to ask for the sale. 😲

But it does make sense, because sales and marketing are not exactly the same thing.

Marketing is about raising awareness and building trust. Sales is the end of that ritual, where money is exchanged for a service.

Our relationship with money affects how we see the pricing of our services. Are you asking for too much or too little? Is it selfish to ask that amount, or are you being fair? Are you honoring yourself with this pricing or are you playing the role of a martyr?

The card I pulled for this situation was THE CRONE.

I actually laughed out loud, because I got a container-load of money wounds that I am working on by playing with a character I like to call the Bougie Bitch. She's more of a ho, and I was half-expecting to draw a card related to this or the Lover...but, we got the Crone!

When Light: magic, clairvoyant, psychic, intuitive, wise
When Dark: vindictive, bitter, isolated, ostracized

The Crone is the witch, the old woman, the sage.

In the mind of the Crone, there is no good or bad. There is no right or wrong.

So, there is no such thing as putting a price point on an authentic, spiritual gift = selling out.

You gotta embody the Crone and laugh at it all, my friend!

The Crone doesn't have time for the pettiness and smallness of all this business nonsense. This might not the archetype you want to call when you need to calculate a profit margin...she'll be like...bitch we are all going to die anyway, name your price and let's go get naked in the woods!

Or maybe...that's exactly what you need to do? 😈

The Crone is so unconventional, most women don't even get to embody her until they reach their 70s or 80s...and most of us never get to experience her.

So, do whatever you need to do...

Whether it is embodying the badass cigar smoking Grandma that doesn't give a fuck (Tanqueray from Humans of New York comes to mind)...or the witch that knows her marketing is a powerful spell and whoever needs your services WILL pay (therefore, she dgaf about sales, because in her mind, people throw money at her for existing)...or the wise woman that is humble enough to accept she is not ready to increase her prices yet...

Nothing is frightening when you are in Crone mode. It just is. Just pick a path, and have fun with it.
