It was the same for me. Yea it is hard to keep going when it gets so expensive and it took me awhile to get my license as well. I have to get my business license for the city and finish fixing up my place before I can really start working but I am focused on my my own practice, for now. I want to make it and I know I will. I have most of my supplies and a nice location. I am almost there.
I graduated in Dec. 08 actually. I am sorry I can't say I remember you from then. I am glad to have you as a new friend here on Massage and Bodywork.There is a lot of great information and connections here.
Where are you working? I am starting my own practice (fingers crossed)! I have been learning and growing in my skills since graduation and feel ready to go forward with my dream. How are things looking for you?
Feel free to send me messeges or ask me anything. I hope that I can do the same.
