Hey Reader,

It's the witchiest time of the year! šŸŽƒ I am wishing you massive blessings for Samhain this coming week. Remember that the veils between dimensions are very thin so respect for how others feel goes beyond humans, especially this week.

When we think about how witchy things are taking off in the business world, I encourage you to follow a sage piece of advice from the movie Practical Magic (the book is amazing also šŸ¤Œ).

And this is what comes from dabbling; I mean you can't practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it.ā€‹
~ Aunt Jet

The dabbling in the witchy arts has had a major surge in the past year. I mean, it's been rising for a while, but in my own observations, I've seen more business-y people throw out some pretty wackadoodle stuff lately than ever.

Maybe it's the feeling of loss of control because the consumer market is having a little existential crisis. But to attempt non-consensual control over major energetic weather patterns when you are not that powerful is a recipe for heartache and disaster.

This librarian recommends, as with all things, that you go back to the authoritative source:

  • Where did you get that spell from?
  • Where did THEY get that spell from?
  • What are the cultural origins of that spell craft? What are you assuming... which never turns out great?
  • Are you appropriating anything that deserves more reverence?
  • Are you toying with energies and forces you don't even know how to identify or handle in your own human body?
  • Is this problem better solved with something like (1) actual therapy, (2) taking some boring practical action, or (3) waiting with greater patience?
  • Do you simply need to let that shit go and it requires *no* action at all?

Do the homework on yourself first... it's every witch's greatest power. šŸŒŸ And remember that if you try to bend someone's free will, that shit will bitch slap you so hard in the future, you'll know exactly when & why. šŸ˜¬

So... none of this "make them buy your program" brouhaha (sold as "manifestation" programs) I keep seeing pop up on socials. If you wouldn't like someone else doing it to you, then you definitely don't want to touch that yourself.

As above, so below.
ā€‹Be a smart witch this season!ā€‹

tip of the week

The end of the year is holding firm on high emotional tensions... I am not going to pretend with you like that's not happening. When individuals are thrown into emotional dysregulation, we cannot expect them be in the highest decision making spaces.

So, what's a CEO to do?? Well, this is where systems can really save your booty. Your data tells a picture and by doing the unglamorous work we talk about in this energetic update is going to help you immensely. Doing The Work can be everything from emotional therapies to learning how to enjoy math on a spreadsheet.

Usually the one you avoid is the one you need the most. šŸ«

attention worthy

If you've been listening to The School of Moxie Podcast, you'll hear a credit each week to my sound editor, Chris Martin.

As the joke goes... No, the *other* Chris Martin. šŸ˜‚

Well, Chris has been one of the pivotal people behind-the-scenes with me this year and he's been podcasting for 7 years. Totally blows my mind! šŸ¤“

I hopped on the mic with him to digest some themes he identified while supporting my podcast's first season in sound design. It was fascinating for me to learn about how he saw my own work and the topics he wanted to pull out from it.

You can have a listen to us nerd out about podcasting for about an hour. Plug in your earbuds and join us on the airwaves!


offerings

Over in The CEO Collective with Racheal Cook, I've been mentoring some badass CEOs. šŸ‹ļø They're all working on their Q4 goals right now and everyone's minds are firmly positioned toward Q1 planning at the next retreat, which happens on December 1st in Richmond and also on December 8th virtually via Zoom.

You can hop into either retreat and check out the 90 day planning system, which really works. I've been using it in my own business to make these huge pivots and shifts in 2023.

But wait! Before we get ahead of ourselves...

Before you do a retreat with us, you might want to get a vibe check, which you can do through the Best Year Ever challenge. It's free and it allows you to do the whole kick-the-tires thing for five days.

I'm a big champion of "stop doing free stuff" and when I say that I mean, be a helluva lot more intentional instead of trying to cobble together a paid program through freebies.

We're at that time of the year when you will need to consider what you're doing for support in 2024. Give this challenge a try and you can always message me with questions about The CEO Collective.
