If your psychic abilities have helped you, as well as friends and family members, during times of crisis and confusion, you may want to consider starting a psychic business. You can assist more people by offering your services professionally. With only your talents and an Internet connection, you can start making a difference in the lives of others--even worldwide--by simply sharing your insights and guidance. In the absence of remarkably strong psychic skills, you can still operate such a business by hiring intuitive readers.
Items you will need
Business licenses and permits
See to all legal concerns, such as necessary licenses and permits. If you will be working from home or in a residential area, take note of the homeowner and zoning restrictions. Pick a name for your business that references your psychic work and is easy to remember. Check your state records for the availability of the name and register it. The requirements differ depending on where you live, so do your research prior to officially taking on clients.
Figure out where you will be giving clients readings--your sessions may be in person, online or over the phone. Be clear as well about the techniques you prefer to use, such as tarot or oracle cards, numerology, automatic writing or channeling.
Look into the fees charged by others in the psychic field. You may ask for higher or lower than the norm depending on what you offer when compared to other businesses. Make arrangements for how you receive payments. You can accept cash, money orders, credit card payments and even online payments through a medium such as PayPal. Decide if you will accept personal checks.
Hire psychic readers or intuitives with a positive track record if you prefer to have a team and not do all the readings yourself. If your company offers online readings, you don't need a physical work space as your employees can all work from home. You may even choose to simply oversee the business and run it from behind the scenes instead of giving readings yourself.
Invest in business cards and a professional-quality website. Tack the cards on community bulletin boards and hand them out when you meet open-minded people or potential clients at New Age or metaphysical events. Update your website on a frequent and regular--even daily, if possible--basis. You can maintain a free blog with special offers to guarantee that subscribers come back and even recommend your services to friends.
Attend workshops and conventions that help you sharpen your psychic skills. You can offer clients a higher level of accuracy and better service by constantly developing your abilities. If you have employees who also give readings, you might want to buy package deals so that everyone can attend these events.
Keep track of all expenses. If your business makes enough money to qualify, you will need your records for tax deductions at the end of the year .
Be ethical when giving readings. Choose your words carefully, as nothing is written in stone, such as accidents or divorces, and your reading may influence people to make important decisions about their lives.
Do not immediately rely on your business to take care of your living expenses. It should bring in consistent earnings that comfortably support your standard of living for at least six months to a year before you cut off other sources of income.
