You all know that I love to make you happy. And you all know that I love using social media. So, I wanna do something DAILY on social media for you. I have a couple of ideas... Let's BLOG about them!
My friend Tabitha is an AMAZING Tea Leaf Reader and Tarot Card Reader. Every day on her Instagram, Tabitha pulls a card and discusses how the card plays in your day. It is kind of like a video Tarot-Scope, which is a great idea. Now, I don't want to steal this idea, but I do want to do something similar.
Other Tarot readers I know do FULL spreads on their social media, DAILY. To me, a full spread is a lot of work to be giving away for free. On top of that, how could you fit ALL that information into a post that wouldn't bore people to death? I mean, Twitter only gives you 150 characters. So, I would need a much smaller spread and even then I would have to heavily condense the information. So, I'm not sold on that.
Let's face it kids... we're starring down the barrel of 2016. Because of that, I wanna be on top of my game. And because of that, I want to further apply myself to building Tarot By Ken. So, please tell me what you think of these ideas! Do you have any others that you would share? If so, leave a comment below and let me know!
Happy New Year to each of you! I look forward to hearing all of your resolutions and determinations!
If it's okay with you, I'd like to go ahead and get in the Christmas spirit!!! I have been super excited for several weeks, but I am ready to dive directly into the Fa-La-La! It all happens this week and I'm so excited, I need to BLOG about it!
It may come as a surprise, but I am not usually the Christmas type. I am the Scrooge in my family. And usually, I am the Grinch... until Christmas morning. But this year has been totally different. This year, I have decorated a tree and everything!
What has made this year so different? Why has the Grinch's heart grown early this year? All of YOU! Each one of your gifts, cards, messages, and texts has brightened my spirit and really put me in the Christmas mood! Heck, Momma C. even sent a gift to my Mom!!! And I appreciate every bit of it. Thank you all, so much! Thank you!
Did Hubby and I get each other gifts this year? OF COURSE! We are always getting each other stuff. The only reason Christmas is different is that we wrapped them up and are forcing ourselves to not get into them. This year, we bought each other robes! Yeah, just like an old married couple! I can't wait. They are 3XXXL, faux fur bath robes with HOODS!!! UGH!!!! I can't sleep, I want mine so bad!
Have I done any donating or been charitable in any way? Yes. But I do that EVERY week. I don't think that giving should be just a Christmas thing. Providing for those less fortunate is all of our responsibilities. And doing so, to the best of your ability, should be a regular thing. So, put that in your chimney and smoke it. All joking aside, the charitable giving of Christmas is my favorite part.
So, Happy Holidays from your buddy Ken Boggle! I hope that your days are merry and bright!!! And I hope that you all get to spend time with the ones that you love!!! And if you'd like to spend Christmas night with me, log onto to ScareFestRadio.com Christmas night for ScareFest Radio with me and Wes Forsythe. I'll be giving Wes a Christmas Quiz, you don't want to miss that! Happy Holidays!
Guess what I did last night... I ordered some of the most GORGEOUS gift certificates, EVER! Folks... they are gorgeous. They are so gorgeous, we gotta BLOG about 'em!!!
Night before last, a new client of mine asked if she could get some certificates from me to pass out to her loved ones. I immediately said, "Absolutely! How many do you need?!" But in reality, I did not have and never have had any physical certificates to offer. So, I immediately went out to fix the situation.
The first place I went was Vistaprint. I always go to Vistaprint. They had some gift certificate templates that were very nice, but then they had a black and white template that was gorgeous. Of course, I went with it. The front is white with black lettering, and black vine artwork. The back is black, with white lettering and white vine artwork. They perfectly match the KenBoggle Season 3 Thank You Cards.
After I customized the font and a few details, I added MATCHING envelopes!!! They are flawless. The inside of the envelopes have security print so that you can't see INTO the envelope. I think it is called, "Security-Backing"? Instead of using regular blue printed backing, I used grey repeated "Ken Boggle" print. So that when you open the envelope, you can see my name on the inside... keeping your gift secure and safe. Is that not the coolest?!
When will they get here? Sometime this week because I got a special discount on the expedited shipping!!! This means that if you wanted to gift someone in your life something special from Tarot By Ken... you can!!! I would be able to mail it to you, ready to gift! All you need to do is email how many you would like, and I invoice you! Once the invoice is paid, your gift certificate is processed and mailed out to you! How cool is that?!
I didn't order too many of these so, supplies are limited. With your support and good sales, we can make these a permanent fixture! I already think they are worthy of doing all year round!!! Purchase a few, gift them out, and then tell me how much you love them!
Needless to say, I am tickled and so happy with my latest purchase for this company. It is decisions like these that bring me so much joy. I love customizing details and creating new things for you all to enjoy! Get ready for these GORGEOUS Gift Certificates!!!
During a Tarot Date with me, the best thing to do is open up and trust me. Lately, I seem to be meeting clients who have a hard time doing this. They say they trust me, they say they want the guidance, but when I ask them questions, they immediately shut down. It has become such an issue that I think we need to BLOG about it.
When you come to see me for a Tarot Date, one of the first things I say is that I can't read minds. So, if I ask a question... it is imperative that you respond. For example, I recently asked someone if they believed they deserved love. My client sighed and tilted their head, but that was the extent of his answer. That simply won't work because I need to know if I am reading your cards correctly. That's why you pay me!
The other day, I asked a young woman if she had children. She said nothing. However, her friend nodded that the client did have kids. I then asked the client if she was demanding to the point where the kids feel over-whelmed and pressured.... She shrugged and her friend nodded in agreement. After a few more exchanges like this, I finally gave up. I looked at the client and asked her to switch seats with her friend. I said, "Lover, switch spots with your friend, she'll participate." The client and her friend laughed, thank goodness. But why would you pay someone (me) $50 for a 30 minute reading and then not participate or confirm that I am on the right track?
I understand that some people are deeply introverted. I understand that others are just shy. And I understand that many others are taken off-guard by the information I provide. But at the end of the day, I need my clients trust me and open up to me. I need you to have faith in the process and allow me into your life.
How do I handle this type of reading? First, I try comforting the client and try to ease their nerves. If that doesn't work, I try to make them laugh and loosen up. If that fails, I stop the reading. I stop the reading because it takes two to Tarot. I try to be kind and polite in my approach and it usually works. I have never had anyone just accept the reading to be over. Every time it has happened, the clients asked to continue and started participating. But in the back of my mind, I think of how much appointment time was wasted in the process.
So if you come to me for a Tarot Date, please open up. Please allow me into your life. And please participate in your reading. If you are uncomfortable during this process, please tell me. I would rather spend time talking you through that than trying to pressure you to respond to fundamental questions. There is no need to hide or be afraid because I am here to help you. My only concern, as your Tarot Reader, is to bring you to your ultimate happiness.
