I have been a certified massage therapist for almost 3 years now. I have been doing pretty well for myself, and my clients aren't complaining. I have enrolled myself in some continuing education classes and getting those underway.I took a leadership class not too long ago and the thing that struck me the most was having a mentor in your prospective business. I am self sufficient, but could definitely use the wealth of knowledge that comes from someone that is more seasoned than myself.Are there…See More

Hi Tene' Thanks for responding to my many questions. It is alright that you didn't respond right away because I hadn't been on my computer in a month!!!!! I am not a regular-daily computer user. I find myself playing a lot of games and wasting time. No discipline I suppose...so I just stay away. Then when I finally do get on I have about 200 e-mails. I answer about 10 then start to get bored....and play games again...lol It's a vicious cycles....hehe
Anyway, I've heard that New Jersey is planning to adopt a National Test in March. I don't know which one it will be so I am planning to get my license first then hopefully take whichever test they (finally) adopt. How about you?

Did you take or are you planning to take the National Test?

I am in Glassboro. I have my own massage business doing outcalls only...for the time being anyway. I plan to take the National test...then who knows from there. How about you? What school did you go to? How long ago?
