Or was she suggesting that you could become professional as in someone reading the Tarot as their main paid occupation rather than just as reading the cards as a hobby? If it was the second option then I might agree … I mean honestly as soon as you accept money for a skill you are entitled to call yourself a professional (_ fill in the blank _),
