Podcast Episode #51 // Getting Witchy with Carolyn Elliott

Carolyn Elliott of Bad Witches Magazine is joining us today to help us indulge our woo woo side. We found Carolyn in our Being Boss Facebook group when she posted a link to an article she wrote on Medium about her bizarre philosophies that helped her go from seriously broke to her first 5-figure month being her own boss. So today Carolyn is talking with us about her philosophy on money and about what it means to be a witch and practice magic.
