Training Your Clients

I feel like I might have written about this before but it is so important to me; I will risk repeating myself.  Make no mistake about it. Your clients are trainable.  I am not talking about the kind of training you see in the photo.  That is meant as a joke, really.  But in...

Hotel Security

July 27, 2011
By

On June 28, 2011 I posted a blog on Hotel Insecurity. That post addressed the issue of the high percentage of sexual harassment in the hotel industry. On the Body_Work Professional Discussion Forum, Toni Roberts posted a great commentary about the Newsweek article. She gave me permission to adapt it and share it with...

Professional Jealousy: Not Professional at All

July 23, 2011
By

Have you ever been a victim of professional jealousy? Even worse, have you been one to perpetuate it? I personally can’t think of any motivation to be so jealous of a fellow massage therapist that I would do something to try and sabotage their business, or repeat rumors or outright untruths about someone in...

Ethical Blogging

On May 21, 2011, Luke O’Neil wrote an informative article in The Wall Street Journal, titled, A Guide to Happy (and Legal) Tumblr-ing: Blogging without ‘stealing’ is much easier than you think. He addresses the common sentiment among the majority of bloggers of a “what’s-mine-is-yours-and-what’s-yours-is-mine policy.” While most people are cautious about copyright infringement...

Hotel Insecurity

On June 5, 2011, Newsweek posted an article titled Hotel Confidential, highlighting a poll of 400 married businessmen. “Three percent said they’d made a pass at a hotel worker (more than half were rebuffed), and 2 percent had sex with them.” The article didn’t specify what percentage of these were massage therapists, but they...

Lemonade Stands . . . Summertime Fun or Illegal Activity?

Children with lemonade stand

It’s starting to get hot, and maybe where you live it’s been hot, it’s summertime and who doesn’t enjoy an ice cold lemonade.  Buying lemonade at a local children’s lemonade stand brings back great memories.  Do you remember having your own little lemonade stand?  The creativity in making your homemade signs, setting up shop, hand...

If You are Standing Still, You are Moving Backwards.

If You are Standing Still, You are Moving Backwards.

It is so true…If your practice has stagnated and you are sitting by and wishing it would pass and things would get better, then you are standing still. The longer you stand still, the further back behind the curve you will become. Ultimately, being complacent is counterproductive, and HOPING things will soon turn will...

Teaching the Teachers

June 5, 2011
By

I inadvertently insulted a massage school owner yesterday by making a FB post saying that I wasn’t impressed by a school that had only one teacher to teach the entire curriculum, and that I wouldn’t choose such a school, personally. To begin with, I wasn’t speaking of his school when I made the post,...

Waiting on the World to Change

May 30, 2011

  I was driving in the rainy streets of Chicago a couple of days ago, flipping through radio stations when I paused to hear the next song.  It was John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change.”  In that moment, driving along, those lyrics really resonated with me.  I got to thinking . ....
