Integrity 4 Sale
When the financial climate is off, I find ways to do what I do best and keep the energy moving, no prob. I create my Yearly Intentions every September. This year I made a declaration to “widen my territory.” Not an easy feat in a Depression but there are “no takebacksies” in the realm of spirit.
I have done many things since then in an attempt to keep my contract with myself.
This week I looked into a few of these psychic hotlines to possibly Read on. Most of them have access to a huge clientle base.
When I was first divorced I worked a couple of these lines. I also worked in a “psychic-mill” or two. Places where there are a gaggle of Readers under one roof in a retail setting. People would pretty much go from one Reader to the next until they heard what they wanted to hear from some fortune-teller.
My clients would tell you I am not one of those Easy-Readers.
I did a few other crazy gigs too. I was a Personal Assistant to both a well-known actress and an ex-chorus boy from Liberace’s stage show. I lived in West Hollywood. What can I say?
I made my own doctored up version of a cheesecake they used to serve at The William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. I sold it to restaurants and private parties alike. I was still doing some commercial singing back then. At the end of the month I would have the rent money and whatever else I needed. I didn’t want much thank G or I would have felt awfully deprived.
After a few years of this agita, I started to do well enough to be able Read full-time. It has been that way ever since.
So, back to my widened territory declaration.
I know these hotlines have a lot of very silly people Reading on them for the most part. But sometimes there are actually good Readers, such as myself, who just want/need/care to Read on an established line with a huge turnover of ready clients. On the line I Read for today… well, it would appear that I was expected to keep someone on the phone for as long as possible. (Whether they needed a long Reading or not.) Keep ’em on the phone for at least 45 minutes. This insures the folks owning the line lots of money to take to the bank. (The Readers only make a very small portion of the minute per rate.)
In all the years I have been doing this work, I have never once tried to milk time in order to pocket more money.
I was told today that if I “want” I could work with someone there in the office to “up my time.”
They had actually recorded the Readings!
I could go over the Readings and be shown where I could have said such and such to “hook the person in and add time to the call.” These were their very words! Now the people I Read for today have no idea this stuff was going on. They would be as horrified to know they were being recorded and objectified in this way as was I.
I am still going to check out a few more of these lines.
The ones I Read for way back when never asked me to engage in such manipulations.
There has to be at least one service who is actually committed to being of service to a higher cause.
I Read for a living.
If people did not call me back or send new people to me I wouldn’t have much of a business. That’s a given.
You want people to feel easy and enjoy their time spent with you. You want them to come back when they need to have some clarity and insight. You want them to not go to Madame Hoo-Ha up the street. Sure she is cheaper and looks like a Disney character version of a Psychic but come on already!
I’m in business and I must earn a living. I am not a monk. I need to earn money in order to thrive.
I am not perfect by any means.
I do not however run a con-game and call it a religion so I don’t have to pay taxes.
Holy-mother-of-ruthless-wackos! This mess was just wrong.
Needless to say I wrote them a Dear J saying bye-bye we are simply not a match made in heaven…or hell.
Have a sweet one!
