What motivated and inspired you to start your own business?
My own personal journey with spirits is what motivated me to start my own spiritually-based business. I have had several experiences with angels and the divine, so many that eventually they could not be ignored nor dismissed as mere coincidence. It took me many years to share my experiences with others out of fear of what others might think. I was convinced that I be would labeled and called crazy, or some other unkind words. I was in my spiritual closet for many years. Not speaking freely about one’s spirituality is like not breathing! That feeling – the release of that fear is what inspires me to help others, which ultimately brought healing and harmony to my own life.
Spiritual Closets Apparel is my way of freely expressing bold, thought provoking statements about spirituality. A spiritual conversation starter, some might say.
Askangels444 is my platform for providing information and answers to spiritual questions.
Tell us about your business.
As an Angel Intuitive-Spiritual Life Coach, I work with both my natural intuitive abilities and my Angel Oracle Cards. I assist others on their spiritual journey. I am dedicated to helping others find peace within themselves, discover their true authentic self and find their purpose in life, just as I did with the help of spirit. I work closely with the Angelic Realm to assist others with accurately hearing their divine messages. Angels are heavenly messengers and gifts to us from God. They are ready to assist us when we need them. The spirit world is in constant communication with us! All we have to do is ask for their assistance. They want to assist us, comfort us, and let us know we are not alone. Many people have asked then why do we ask angels? Angels know and respect that we have free will. Asking can be simply done through prayer or meditation this is personal for everyone. We all have our own method of communicating with spirit. A lot of what I do is confirmation of what you already know through your own divine connection with spirit. Know that your angels are with you right now. Have you asked your angels for help lately?

Where is your business based?
Los Angeles, California and Saint Augustine, Florida.
What were the first few steps you took to get your business up and running?
The first steps for me was getting out of my own way, coming out of what I call my Spiritual Closet. There was a point at which I felt as if I was living a double life. I had kept all of my spiritual experiences to myself. I was afraid of being judged or that I would lose friends if I let them get to know the real me. Once I let go of that fear (false evidence appearing real) or what I now call illusion, letting go of this illusion that what others thought about my spiritual beliefs mattered, that’s when things began to take off and running for me.
What has been the most effective way of raising awareness of your business and getting new customers?
I raise awareness primarily through social media. This allows me to send my spiritual message to everyone. I post a weekly Angel Oracle Card Readings @askangels444. I believe these divine messages find the people whom they are intended to reach. These weekly posts are very effective and often lead to private appointments from people who want a more personalized experience.
What have been your biggest challenges so far?
My biggest challenge was choosing to live an authentic life. In the beginning this was difficult for me because that meant accepting that some relationships would be lost. As we grow and evolve we lose relationships that no longer serve our highest good. We start to form new relationships because we attract more like minded people and situations into our lives.
How did you overcome these challenges?
I was able to overcome these challenges by focusing on service. I knew, accepted and understood my divine life purpose. I accepted my spiritual calling to have a life of service to others! This is what kept me going, and even if I got nervous I would repeat over and over, “If you get nervous focus on service”, “If you get nervous focus on service”. Once we take the focus off of us we can overcome any challenge! I always had a clear knowing without a doubt that I was on the right path and was being supported by God, the Angels, and the Universe. It was this inner knowledge that helped me overcome my challenges and to realize that it’s ok to be nervous, just as long as I keep going!
How do you keep motivated through difficult times?
I spend quiet time in meditation and prayer. I turn all my worries into prayers, because worrying never solves anything. It just creates more worry.
How do you distinguish yourself from your competitors?
I definitely don’t feel like I have competitors in a traditional sense. I am here to be of service to those who cross my path on this journey. I certainly believe that if I am meant to be of service to someone we both will find our way to each other on this journey for mutual support and spiritual growth.
What is the best advice you have received recently?
“Don’t allow fear to keep you from your path.” Entrepreneurs can attest to this, it can be scary at times. I can admit, sometimes I need to be reminded of this as I continue on my journey as a human, a spiritual being and an entrepreneur.
What advice would you give to other entrepreneurs?
Keep a dream journal. Sleep with it next to your bed each night, and before you go to sleep ask your angels to assist you with new brilliant and creative ideas for your business! We can receive all kinds of spiritual communication in our dreams. During this time, the conscious mind is out of the way and we are open to the divine.
What is your favorite business tool or resource?
My Angel Oracle Cards are my favorite. In addition to my natural intuitive abilities, they are both a tool and resource for my spiritual business. They operate within the infallible Law of Attraction.

What is a good article or book you have read recently?
“A Course in Miracles” by Marianne Williamson. I read this book many years ago on my own, but recently revisited it with a book club. What an amazing experience it was to read this book as a group, so many valuable and unique individual insights!
Marianne Williamson Quote:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
What are you currently learning about for your business or looking for help with?
Currently my focus is on finding new and innovative ways to expand my organization’s reach. This includes exploring not so common ways to send a common message. The only help that I ask is to spread love and light, if you like a message on @askangels444 – please like it and share it! You are spreading love and light by sharing these divine messages with the world. It may not be a message that you needed to hear today, but it may be for someone else. The world needs all of our help collectively.
What are your goals for the next few months and how are you striving to achieve them?
Over the next few months I will be working with a team to bring more spiritual resources to several communities. This may transpire via multiple avenues in addition to social media, we are discussing plans for a spiritual community center, a resource magazine and television network. Follow our progress and stay tuned future updates @charoncollier.
