Angie Banicki is a tarot card reader to the stars. Her client list includes celebrities, politicians, entertainment industry executives, and CEOs of major corporations, some of whom she has guided to close multi-million dollar deals.

 

But Angie’s client list wasn’t always filled with such high-profile individuals. Her Why Not Now? moment involves leaving her PR job in order to pursue tarot card reading. She didn’t know how she was going to pay her bills, but she knew that this career path was made for her.

 

At first, Angie didn’t feel comfortable charging high prices for her intuitive services. She didn’t even want to promote her services because she was scared they wouldn’t be worth it to her clients. On this episode of Why Not Now?, Angie tells Amy Jo about her journey to owning her worth, slowly raising her prices and promoting her genius in the process.

 

Angie tells Amy Jo that the connections she made as a PR representative eventually turned into client leads, proving your experience and connections are always beneficial, even in the midst of a career-180.

 

Angie and Amy Jo talk about motherhood, listening to your inner soul, shifting your mindset, and showing up for yourself. Angie says that self awareness is the first step in changing anyone’s life.

 

Angie also performs a live tarot card reading for Amy Jo, and it’s very telling for where Amy Jo is in her life and business.

    42:32

    NASA Astronaut and Marine Corps Colonel Douglas Hurley is on the show this week!   Doug was the Spacecraft Commander on last year’s SpaceX Crew Dragon. It was the first crewed spaceflight from American soil in almost 9 years.   Doug’s Why Not Now? moment involves applying to the astronaut program, and how that decision changed the trajectory of both his professional and personal life. Doug’s favorite part about his time in the program is that he met his wife who is also a NASA Astronaut and they now have a son together.   Doug tells Amy Jo about the week-long interview process and what NASA looks for in its candidates. He also talks about that surreal moment when he got the phone call telling him he would be an astronaut.   Doug and Amy Jo discuss how Doug overcame the mental challenge of living in space for extended periods of time. A lot of the ways he kept his mind healthy in space can easily be applied here on earth.    Doug also shares that he’s at an inflection point in his career. He recently retired from NASA and is planning his next move.   One of the most powerful parts of this conversation is when Amy Jo asks Doug to describe some of his favorite moments from any of his three space flights.   It’s no surprise that Doug can’t pick just one, but he describes some of the most impactful moments, and it almost feels like you’re right there with him up in space.   Learn more about Doug: https://www.nasa.gov/astronauts/biographies/douglas-g-hurley/biography Follow Doug on Twitter: https://twitter.com/astro_doug   Learn more about the Renegade Accelerator:  http://www.renegadeaccelerator.com/     Get Amy Jo’s newsletter: https://amyjomartin.activehosted.com/f/21   Follow Amy Jo… Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amyjomartin/ Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/amyjomartin Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/amyjomartin Why Not Now?
