Burn out

Within the past week, the Iowa winter has officially gotten to me. I happen to believe I tolerate winter as well as anyone else in the Hawkeye State. February typically brings the promise of warmer days, melting snow, and glimpses of spring. With incessant snow showers in the forecast, not a day over thirty degrees, an eight foot drift in my backyard, and getting our vehicle pulled out of the snow twice in one night; winter has worn out its… Continue

The California Gold Rush (A Response)

I am grateful for and learning quite a bit from everyone's comments on this blog.

After reading Laura's initial blog and posting my comments, I emailed each member of the CAMTC's BOD with my opinion. I received two responses by email. The following day, Feb. 11, I went to the meeting to observe the meeting and gain more understanding. I encourage other therapists to attend the meetings.

1. Low Cost - The annual cost of developing and maintaining a website can be as low as $250. Compare this to other forms of advertising such as running ads in phonebooks, local papers, and magazines. Print ads will often run over $100 a month.

7 Sure Fire Ways to Build a Massage Practice

7 Ways to Build a Massage Practice

1. Get Known by the Public. Reaching out with helping hands to the public is one sure fire way to build a massage practice.

I have used all of these methods in the past, and it was common for me to get 3-5 new customers each time I did this.

Yesterday I started a new job.

Four days ago I quit the old one.

You know that the old job, if you've read my first blog post, was turning into an unpleasant situation. It was a good thing I left given what the alternative would've been had I choked and stayed on.

The downside is that I left the location that was providing me the bulk of my…
