Thank you for interviewing with us today, can you introduce yourself to us?
Hi! Thank you so much for having me. I’m Kelsey Crystal. I’m a Clairvoyant Medium based out of Dallas, Texas, USA. I have been in business for slightly over three years now and have clients in 7 countries. I do readings in a unique way where I draw and do what is referred to as automatic writing. I absolutely love what I do, and I love helping women find clarity, peace, and purpose through my readings!
Can you take us through your journey to where you are now?
Absolutely! How I started my business was unique in the sense that it was due to a life altering event. I had become extremely sick from both breast cancer and mold toxicity in 2018 and had chosen to leave my government job working for the Department of Defense. I was too sick to keep working a corporate job at that time and I honestly hated government work. It wasn’t for me at all. So I left my government job and moved to Texas where I didn’t know anyone and started my journey here. I initially had moved here for treatment as there is a treatment facility in Dallas specifically for treating biotoxin illness. While recovering from my chronic illness, I wanted to find a way to be able to work from home since I was still too sick to work in person at that time. I also wanted to find a way to empower and help other women so they didn’t have to endure what I went through with the medical community. I always knew I was highly psychic, but I didn’t exactly know how to voice it. I began doing readings in Facebook groups in 2018 in exchange for testimonials for two months then I began charging and built my business from there. I was able to scale my business in nine months due to Instagram and client referrals. I am 100 percent self-taught in my readings and looking back, starting my business was the best decision I have ever made. I am eternally grateful for my wonderful clients, for them allowing me to read them and for them showing up for themselves!
Since starting, have you made any changes to your business model?
I wouldn’t say I’ve changed my business model. I have changed what social media platforms I use to promote through now. I think there was a drastic shift in how online businesses can pivot and learn to use other forms of social media to promote and engage during the pandemic.
Have you ever had a mentor? If so how has this benefitted you either personally or professionally? I’ve never had a mentor. I’ve always looked up to all strong women who have built businesses on their own from scratch, usually without any help. That was how I started mine. As a female business owner, its important to own your power and your strengths and to not let anyone or anything deter you from that. Know your worth and don’t back down.
What outlets do use for marketing?
I started my business through Instagram in 2018. Instagram was my primary source for marketing and client acquisition. During the pandemic that changed a bit and I transitioned over to TikTok. I believe TikTok is the best app to use for marketing purposes as a business owner now. People crave connection and TikTok gives viewers just that – a strong sense of community and connection.
Which methods are you using to build your own support network?
I’m big on using TikTok, LinkedIn, and even Twitter, to help connect with other like-minded business owners. Additionally, I joined a group of multiple talented psychics late last year where we do monthly reading events for people around the world over Zoom. It’s amazing!
What is the best piece of business advice you have received to date?
To take your emotions out of it because you’re running a business. Your emotions are important and need to be processed outside of your business, not in it.
How do you create an evenly balanced work and personal life?
I love nature. Nature helps ground me so much. I try to go on nature walks, hikes, runs outside as much as possible. I’m also big on self-care. I try to take one day per week where I am off my phone all day to prevent burnout and overstimulation.
Name a seminal point in your career so far?
Being interviewed on iHeart Media Dallas! That was such an awesome accomplishment for myself within the first year of my business.
What gives you ultimate career satisfaction?
Knowing I am helping women all around the world. Also knowing that we are all struggling in our own beautiful ways and that this is perfectly okay.
Are there any leading entrepreneurs or SME leaders that you admire and if so, why?
I tend to receive a lot of backlash for saying this but I look up to Kim Kardashian as an entrepreneur. I believe she is an excellent example of women not having to keep ourselves confined in one box and breaking barriers in every area of business. She has set the tone that it doesn’t matter who
How do you define your own success?
I define my own success through joy. There tends to be this misconception that happiness is the goal and that happiness can be achieved through running and sustaining an online business. I disagree. I believe joy should be the goal. Joy is finding gratitude in all moments, even the mundane and small moments, and enjoying the journey along the way. It’s not an easy journey, but it is well worth it.
Finally, What can we expect from you this year?
You can expect a lot from me before the year end. This year I have added new services to my business including Somatic Stress Release sessions as this was something I recently became certified in through Dr. Scott Lyons, a renowned psychotherapist here in the US. I began adding these sessions both individually and in my 1.5-hour readings as well. These sessions help connect the client back in their body to enhance feelings of safety and connectedness with their intuition.
