Episode 52: Sarah Gottesdiener of Modern Women and visualmagic
Today I’m speaking with Sarah Gottesdiener online shop owner, designer, podcaster and tarot reader. Sarah is (among many other things) the designer behind the “Women, Wimmin, Woomin, Womxn” design that you’ve probably seen at your favorite witchy, feminist shop. I have a tee and a tote, courtesy of Sarah and I get solidarity compliments wherever I go. She is also the creator of the always-sold-out Many Moons Workbook and the Many Moon Lunar Planner.
Sarah talks about wanting to work for herself while being able to control her own time and energy. We talk about the irony in assuming that business ownership means freedom and how we can protect ourselves from the day-to-day energetic drain. Sarah is deliberate about what she allows into her life and we go into the benefits of a slow and steady approach when it comes to the success of our businesses and making money. Sarah shares her tips for preparing for what might be a negative customer interaction and encourages us to seek ways to be gentle with ourselves and others. Sarah and I talk about taking responsibility for our privilege as white, cis-gendered business owners and she encourages us to speak out in support of those without as much social and political privilege. I still feel strengthened and encouraged by my conversation with Sarah and I know you’ll feel the same after hearing our chat. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
As you’ll hear in my intro I’m super passionate (and nervous) about the mid-term elections. Please vote. It’s our right and it’s how our voices are heard.
