Taking the Long Way Home

My Picks for the NCBTMB Election

Learn From The Newbies

July 12, 2010

I am not one of those folks who is unteachable.  In fact, I aim to be teachable forever.  I am also one of those teachers who learns from my students.  Many colleagues get “full of themselves” and think that they can’t learn from students,  new graduates or “young” massage therapists, sometimes called newbies.  I think...

A Few Kudos to Industry Supporters

June 10, 2010

I've probably forgotten somebody. There are a lot of people out there, and a lot of large and small companies that help us do what we do. They donate door prizes at our meetings and conventions.
