My Entrepreneurial Journey
I grew up in a small town on the West Coast of Scotland and, as my Mum was often poorly and hospitalised, I stayed with my grandparents a lot. My Gran was a Medium and also read the tea leaves so I believe this is where my interest in anything spiritual or “not of this world” was born, while watching her work. However, it wasn’t until many years later that I realised that the people who visited me in my dreams after they had passed, the voices I heard, or just the way I would “know” things was actually a gift I could use to reach out to people who were troubled and in need of guidance.
Eventually, I was able to take early retirement from my job as a Medical Secretary/P.A. in Psychiatry and Learning Disabilities with the NHS in order to begin my journey with my beloved Tarot. Since then, I have studied and worked with many people who, like me, are passionate about Tarot and who have helped me gain and build on my skills. I believe Spirit channels though me when I read using my beautiful Gilded Tarot, The Gilded Royale decks of cards, or my inspiring Angel Tarot cards, in order to provide answers and guidance to those who come seeking. I believe that those who choose me to read for them have been guided to me for a reason and I approach every reading I do as the opening of a new page in the querent’s journey through life and keep this in mind while reading. I always get a sense of wonder and excitement when I read and look forward to interpreting the message Spirit wishes to convey through me using my cards as a tool. I am also able to use my pendulum when I feel it necessary.
Living by the Seaside…and Lovin’ It
I live beside the seaside in a lovely town on the South East Coast of England with my husband who is a keen bowler. I have an adult son and daughter who live an hour’s drive away. I enjoy the friendship of a large circle of like-minded people and spending time with them is always filled with happiness and lots of laughter. I’ve met and made many like-minded friends on my spiritual journey and continue to do so. It’s wonderful to have something in my life I’m very passionate about (apart from my husband and adult children of course!). I am kept busy as I read for private clients, at Psychic Fairs/Events, work on the ‘phone lines (no nothing naughty, ha, ha) for Psychic Today, a spiritual television channel (Sky 668) and offer readings on my own website, www.aqueenofcups.com which is also affiliated to www.kajama.com, which is owned by a lovely very talented American lady, Susyn Blair-Hunt. I wish I could say all this keeps me out of mischief…….
Advice to Seniors Considering Starting their Own Business
The one piece of advice I would give somebody ‘er um, mature like myself thinking of starting their own business, is to just go for it! Research how to make what’s in your head, and heart, a reality. Don’t be hesitant or afraid to ask advice from people with experience in what you’re hoping to do. I feel that, as I have got older, I care less what other people think and feel more able to actually do what I want and not what other people expect of me. What a sense of freedom that brings! So, what are you waiting for, go on, take that first step in making your dream come true. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
Onwards and upwards!!
